Sounds like the adult equivalent of pretending to be sick to get out of class at school. The timing of this 'concussion' is suspect.

Some people are starting to talk.

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/12/2...intons-concussion-is-benghazi-flu/

If this is legitimate, then I wish her speedy recovery because I'd like to hear what she has to say about the whole Benghazi case.

And she'll take the class when she's better. Okay, she doesn't testify on the day she was supposed to. Big deal - she's still going to testify eventually. There's nothing to gain by faking anything.

Even if she had testified earlier, she'd still probably be called back anyway now that the report on the attack was put out.

I don't know about that. If Obama could get a second term, just about anyone can get elected. She'll briefly fall off the radar, get plastic surgery, recover and comeback with a new & improved look. She will inherit all of the Hollywood support of Obama and the endearing media and could possibly win. She has the nomination in the bag if she runs. Who else is there? Joe Biden? Only Joe Biden thinks he has a shot at winning the Presidency.

I don't think she'll run, which makes Benghazi a non-issue. In 2016 she'll be 69, Biden older. Look at her travel schedule, even more grueling than Obama. I think the Democrats will try to conjure up a candidate who's around 50-ish, i.e., Obama's age. Not sure who that would be, mind you,

It's too bad, IMHO, that Jennifer Granholm was born in Canada. She is therefore ineligible to run. Smart, attractive, well-spoken.

Actually the truth is stranger story than anyone could make up.

Talking points on the Sunday Shows came from the CIA. And it was General/Director Petraeus running the CIA at the time. And a rough time for the General as he understood he had been caught in his little honey trap. You KNOW that is something the GOP doesn't want discussed a lot in public.

And then there can be discussions of the Budget Cuts the GOP has pushed for in the past and will push for again in the future.

And it will be interesting to see just how much classified materials will be laid open. Where were the CIA and military personnel? Why were we using contract security - a real joke in most cases. Outsourcing that the government has used for a long time to save a buck or two?

There is plenty of blame to go around on this one and I think we will find money (doing it on the cheap) will be towards the front.

Queer situation that - two Ms. Rices, both black and both considered for SecState. One had the FUBAR of the WMDs in Iraq and the other took the CIA Director's talking points to the Sunday talk shows. Queer that when you look at the aftermath of their two situations.

Actually Ms Rice # 1 was pretty solid intellectually. Both the Rices had earned PhD's and are don't get very teary eyed.

Do you really think so? Legitimate question, I´m not trying to debate you. But I would think that the GOP in 2016 will go out with all their talons extended to prevent another 4 years of DEM government. Why would it not be an issue? And for the record, Latin America and Mexico really do fare better with GOP governments than with DEM ones. For example, there´s never been so many deportations in history than with the Obama administration. Bush was pretty friendly in comparison. DEM governments tend to be pretty demagogical towards their latino base, but it never translates into action. The GOP has in history, been really the one more open to the Latino community, and we´ve fare better with them in power.

I don't understand how a story can be made out of nothing. Hillary Clinton wasn't on the ground in Benghazi when the attack went down nor was she there picking up the pieces. What story would she be concoting. Wether she testified a few days ago or a few years from now she will be reading reports from other state department employees as well as other federal agencies reports. Her advisers will brief her and she will do a lot of reading. Her having a concussion affects none of that.

Not necessarily so, the extraordinary deportation program was started under Bush after the Patriot Act and accelerated as the years went on. Many people who thought it was unfair and harsh thought that it would ease up upon Obama's arrival..but according to an Immigration Atty friend, it did not..it in fact continued to rise. Only now in the past year has it started to dial back a bit from it's peak.

But immigration/deportation is not what I'd call the bar of 'good relations' in Latin America. If it is...what on earth is the havoc wreaked on Central America under Eisenhower (actually executed by V.P. Nixon - Operation 54-12) that saw massive overthrows from Argentina/Chile all the way up Central America. Along with Reagan's Fubar in El Salvador and Nicaragua? A lot of corpses line those years and a lot of families have not forgotten what was done to them.

There is nothing. The same M.O. used here is the very same against Eric Holder and the Fast & Furious program which was fine under Bush/Cheney...but somehow under Obama it was a disaster. When in truth, it was a disastrous concept from it's inception.

Compare the Benghazi incident 4 people killed...to the Beirut Embassy Bombing where 277 Marines got killed under Reagan.

Imagine what the GOP today would try to do to Obama if 277 Marines were killed in the Libyan Embassy or Consulate (Benghazi .. YES, this Republican group is so hostile it would bring up Impeachment proceedings not a single person can deny it.

The trend here is very simple if you're paying attention, if Fox News and Limbaugh can bitch about it loud enough and long enough to flag down a Tea Party/GOP loyalist.. we have a 'Gotcha' moment in the 'Get Obama anyway you can' sweepstakes. 99% of Americans could not find Benghazi on my map if their life depended on it. 99% don't even know the capital Libya. The same number know nothing about Embassy/Consulate functions and expect that in a hot zone such as this 'bad things' do not happen. Any American finding himself all twisted up about this nonsense and found mute on the true disaster that got all those children killed last week needs his skull examined. Those kids had a right to expect to be in a completely safe place - any US Embassy/Consulate on Earth, from London, Madrid, Moscow, Mexico City to Lagos is on constant high alert ..constantly aware that your life can be in jeopardy on a moments notice and that their expectations of safety is light years from that of those kids in Newton, CT.

This Benghazi nonsense is something that can never be known in detail because of it's very murky nature - it's surroundings and involvement of cloaked elements. It is insane to kid one's self otherwise. But I say let the GOP sing on...because what took ammo from the GOP's 2012 election artillery was '4 years of harping on silliest of the silly - birther crap, apologizer-in-chief .. all meaningless cheap shots that added up to nothing when a miserable economy was enough to win..they still lost because the nation was tired of hearing the same childish labels they had hurled at the President for 4 years straight..they had nothing to show for their 2010 win (which they won on name calling alone) but more insults, no substance of their own. And it's repeating itself right now. This why is why it is impossible to expect change from them..they habitually bite themselves in the rear at every opportunity they can. So Benghazi Forward troops...keep singing that tune, there's gold in them thar' hills, keep digging.

When Susan Rice was being considered for secretary of state, all these criticizers were saying that it was her fault. Now that Rice is out, not a damn peep has been said implicating her.

That should tell you all you need to know about this issue: it is a witch hunt.

Now, when the Secretary of State gets ill, along with the rest of her team mind you, and passes out sustaining a concussion, these conspiracy theory yahoos think she's trying to avoid something. They really should just admit at this point (now that they've been fully exposed) that they are just on a which hunt.

There are those who see Clinton's accident as part of some secret conspiracy. These are the good folks who are grabbing onto anything after the Election results. The problem is that a real public investigation will just bring back a Fallen General who was in charge of the CIA at the time and was responsible for delivering the talking points.

Don't get me wrong... I can at least understand a few concerns about Benghazi... they are very sketchy to say the least and will probably lead to nothing, but I can see why there may be concern.

But the fact that EVERY detail has somehow been pinned to make the President look bad, and now they are becoming conspiracy theories? Give me a break. Not saying it can't happen, but when you take events that are 1 in 100 and multiply them together, it becomes 1 in 1000000000 that all these crazy events transpired.

Happily I am 1000% confident that he is being sarcastic. That being said, it is ridiculously sad and strange that some people are actually unable to accept that those they disagree with or oppose are not deceiving them. It is essentially an inability to treat others as human (i.e. that people are "normal" and do not continuously deceive or do nefarious things). And yes it occurs on both ends of the spectrum.

I´m no fan of H. Clinton, but surely a blood clot from a fall that puts you in a hospital at her age ought to be serious. Now, is it a blood clot as in an Epidural Hematoma or a blood clot as in some sort of Deep Vein issue due to being immobile?

Ms. Clintion has a serious medical program and at her age and the recent events, it is no wonder she is retiring. I don't believe she will run for President in 2016 for those reasons. I never liked her even considering her running for any office after her husband ended his term as President including her running for the Presidental nomination in 2008. I don't think she is faking or using medical problems to evade testifying as to Bengazi consulate terror attacks, assuming she recovers, she will testify although I think it should be behind closed doors but under oath with Intellegnce committees of the House and Senate to remove the emotional politics of this attack and really tries to get to it's cause and who caused the inaccurate cover story of the movie as to triggering the attack.

She has a subdural hematoma. What would convince you that it's true. If you were in the radiology suite when the images came in, would you say that you couldn't be sure that they weren't pre-loaded images of another patient with a subdural?

A subdural can be a serious injury, although hopefully it's just a small one in her case and it will resolve. One of my patients (a 1yo) had to have a hemicraniectomy (removal of half of the skull) due to a subdural from child abuse. The kid is now 2 and still doesn't use his left arm quite normally.

On reading more articles, I now very much doubt that it's a subdural. I think it's actually an intravascular thrombus, which would be VERY concerning because it could lead to a stroke. The reason for this is that she is being treated with anticoagulants and no competent physician would ever give anticoagulants to a patient with a subdural.

Why, she's worked for the Obama administration. In the minds of certain people with paranoid ideation and a slippery grasp on reality when politics come into play, that alone is sufficient grounds for suspicion of everything from high treason to attempted genocide.

From other articles, Mrs. Clinton has dural sinus thrombosis. The dural sinuses are the veins that drain the brain back to the heart. A thrombus in a dural vein is a common complication of blunt head trauma. While such thrombi rarely lead to stroke, they are not without their danger.

A thrombus is a clot that is located within a blood vessel, whether it is an artery or vein. In the case of the artery, this is problematic because arteries grow thinner the further they reach from the heart. The thrombus gets knocked loose, at which point it is called an "embolus," and then lodges in a blood vessel through which it is too large to pass. This cuts off blood flow to all the tissues downstream of that blood vessel. If it's a tiny vessel supplying a muscle or liver, it's no big deal. But if it's a larger vessel supplying the heart or brain, it's a big problem.

In a venous thrombus, the veins get larger in the direction of blood flow, rather than smaller as they do in arteries. Thus, venous embolus is unlikely to block other veins. However, it can proceed to the heart, where it is passed through the right atrium, right ventricle (all of which have large-bore valves) and into the pulmonary artery, where it starts to get thinner as it passes into the lungs. A small clot might cause only mild symptoms, while larger clots can be instantly lethal (I've had someone die in my arms from such a clot).

Mrs. Clinton will be on anticoagulants for some time, during which she will need to be very careful.

FWIW, I have a great deal of admiration for her, and I think she has accomplished a great deal in her many years of public service, especially as a Senator from New York (where I live).

As for me, I suffered a concussion from a sledding accident when I was 12, with no lasting effects (although that can be disputed!).

Unfortunately, I have both MTHFR and Factor-5 which leave me prone to blood-clotting. I have already had DVT, which means that on any flights above 5-6 hours, I need to self-administer Lovenox into my abdomen. Not fun, but not as bad as it sounds. I was also on Coumadin for one year which is a huge pain because your clotting-factor has to be measured every two weeks. I'm glad to be done with that.

That depends on the politicians questioning her. Some want to bash the Administration so they well have a go. Others might well bring in a counter balance, maybe by bringing in the CIA actions.

Just how that impacted all the events this fall should be made public at the hearing Hillary testifies at.

I wonder whether they will choose coumadin (which the articles seem to suggest with the "adjusting the dose" comments) vs. one of the new specific thrombin inhibitors like dabigatran (PRADAXA).

I'm not sure if it's indicated or studied in dural sinus thrombosis, which may be why they are going for coumadin, instead. It's just that coumadin is such a pain and its onset of action is so delayed and the monitoring and dietary stuff.

Is coumadin the US name for warfarin? I took warfarin for six months. To be fair, the dietary stuff wasn't too bad. I didn't have to be mega careful, just avoid a few things like grapefruit, cranberry etc, (though I gather there is a lot of debate about how necessary that really is) and my levels got good and stable fairly early on, which was nice as the tests started to slow down a bit (I was starting to get doctors asking me if I was an IV drug user because of all the daily arm-stabbings I was subjected to....). It was more of a nuisance just being paranoid about cutting myself, having to take alert cards, tissues and plasters everywhere I went.

Actually, probably about six months for an isolated event like this. She doesn't have atrial fibrillation or a hypercoagulable state, so there's no reason why she would need indefinite therapy.

To be fair, it was a fairly unfortunate coincidence of events that easily led to simplistic conspiracy theories being chucked around. It is a shame that US politics is at times so paranoid a world as for such 'theories' to ever see the light of day, yet alone be treated seriously, but I suppose it is what it is. I just hope that people are feeling a little remorse for levelling untrue accusations against a critically ill person, but alas I rather think that there will be some who just continue believing their own convenient parallel universe is actually reality, in stark and deliberate ignorance of the facts.
