“What difference at this point does it make?”
Ah, who could forget Hillary’s outburst when congress grilled her on Benghazi?
A bipartisan Senate intelligence committee has (finally) ruled that the U.S. State Department is at fault for failing to increase security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya before the attacks on September 11, 2012 which ended in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his staff.
“The attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya — to include prior threats and attacks against Western targets — and given the known security shortfalls at the U.S. Mission,” the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence panel said in a statement, reports USA Today.
The highly critical report also revealed that 15 people who have attempted to cooperate with the FBI’s investigation of the murders in Benghazi have been killed, too.
The committee found that the State Department failed to heed dire warnings of imminent attacks from both the CIA and the ambassador’s office itself.
Could this be because unclassified cables between the Benghazi post and the White House clearly show that for at least a year prior to the Benghazi attacks, the ambassador’s office had been warning the U.S. government — including direct messages to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton herself — that the consulate was under threat of attack and nothing was done about it?
A timeline shows the Benghazi post repeatedly sent messages asking for more security throughout 2012 leading up to the deadly attack. In March, not only was a request for more security flat out denied, but security at Benghazi was actually cut back. Three more requests were sent in June, July, and one from Ambassador Stephens himself in August 2012 — all were, yet again, denied.
In fact just a week before the attack on September 4, 2012, Stephens finally sent out a maximum alert to a multitude of Obama Administration agencies, including to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (again), but also to the CIA, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security, warning of the threat of an imminent attack.
Still, nothing was done to protect the post.
So, we have yet another confirmation of fault in Benghazi to throw on the pile…and four Americans are still dead. The real question is, what’s going to be done about it? Is anyone ever going to be held accountable?
Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah called out our former Secretary of State: “The bottom line is Hillary Clinton wanted the appearance of normalization. Security was not driving these decisions. Politics was.”
Politics. Hm. Good to know.
But hey, 2016 will be here soon…why not make Hillary president?
