Blow-by-Blow: How Obama & Hillary Left Americans to Die

xxx-benghazi-hearings-hdb-1-4_3_r541_c540Wednesday on Capitol Hill, three impeccable witnesses offered the clearest evidence to date that the Obama administration’s response to Benghazi before, during and after the terrorist attack that claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Department employee Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen A. Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods, was a deadly combination of ineptitude, political calculations, and outright lying. Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant Secretary of State for counterterrorism; Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya; and Eric Nordstrom, former regional security officer in Libya, offered unshakeable testimony, despite efforts by several Democratic lawmakers to protect both the current administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, their party’s most viable presidential candidate for 2016. What the witnesses averred reveals a grim web of deceit likely orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to cover up the order to ground U.S. rescue teams that could have easily saved our besieged countrymen in Benghazi.

Some of the most compelling and emotional testimony was provided by Hicks, who offered the House Oversight and Government Reform committee a damning blow-by-blow account of the September 11, 2012 attack: In Tripoli at the time, Hicks recounted how he had spoken with Stevens early in the evening, and there was no sign of unusual activity. After relaxing for a while, he got an alert that Benghazi was under attack. When he checked his cell phone he saw two numbers, one of which he didn’t recognize. He called that number first and got Stevens on the phone. “Greg! We’re under attack!” said Stevens, according to Mr. Hicks.

Later, when it became clear that Stevens was missing, the first concern was that he had been taken by terrorists. “We began to hear also that the ambassador’s been taken to a hospital,” said Hicks. “We learn that it is in a hospital which is controlled by Ansar al-Shariah, the group that Twitter feeds had identified as leading the attack on the consulate.” As this information was coming in, a “response team” from Tripoli arrived at the Benghazi airport, one that Hicks thought might become involved in a “hostage rescue” operation, even as officials worried they were being “baited into a trap.”

Hicks then spoke of the mortars that landed on the compound shortly after a group of Americans fleeing the consulate arrived at the annex. The first mortar landed among a group of Libyans who had helped bring the Americans to safety. “The next was short,” he said. “The next three landed on the roof.”

Those were the mortars that killed Doherty and Woods.

Hicks was visibly choked up when he recounted learning about Stevens’ death from the Libyan prime minister. “I think it’s the saddest phone call I’ve ever had in my life,” he said.

In one of the most stunning portions of the hearing, Hicks confirmed the chilling refusal of the Obama administration to send in readily available U.S. assets to stop the consulate slaughter. This order to “stand down” was given not once, but at least twice. Hicks also revealed that an explicit order from the chain of command prevented a four-man special forces rescue team in Tripoli from getting to the Americans trapped at the annex. He noted the order came from “either AFRICOM or SOCAFRICA” and that the team was “furious” when they were told to stand down. “I will quote Lieutenant Colonel Gibson,” said Hicks, referring to the officer on the receiving end of that command. “He said, ‘This is the first time in my career that a diplomat has more balls than somebody in the military.’” Hicks’ testimony on this point directly contradicts recent statements from the Obama-run Pentagon. “There was never any kind of stand-down order to anybody,” said Maj. Robert Furman, Pentagon spokesman, on Monday.

Yet Mark Thompson also testified that he tried to get a Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST) comprised of special ops and intelligence personnel deployed, and he, too, was told to stand down. According to a source interviewed by Breitbart.com, only President Obama, or someone acting on his authority, could have given the stand down order. As we know from testimony provided by former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, President Obama met with the two officials on September 11 at 5 p.m. EDT for 30 minutes — less than an hour-and-a-half into the attack — and was supposedly never heard from him again for the rest of the evening. The very next day, Obama headed to a campaign fundraiser in Las Vegas.

The Obama administration undoubtedly understood that its decision to leave defenseless Americans, including our ambassador, to needlessly die at the hands of al-Qaeda-linked jihadists would not go over well for a commander-in-chief in the throes of a presidential election and a secretary of state angling for the Oval Office in 2016. Hicks’ testimony affirmed suspicions that administration officials conspired to conceal the nature of the attack by concocting an absolutely fictitious account of events involving a “spontaneous” attack prompted by an anti-Islam YouTube video. Hicks testified that he had personally told former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the Benghazi raid was a terrorist attack at 2 a.m. that same night. He recounted that “everybody in the mission” believed it was an act of terror “from the get-go,” a reality echoed by Libyan President Mohammed al-Magariaf, who said his government had “no doubt that this was pre-planned, predetermined.” Magariaf made this assertion the very day before UN ambassador Susan Rice went out to peddle the lie that a “spontaneous demonstration” had gotten out of hand due to an Internet video.

When Hicks heard Rice, he was appalled. “My jaw dropped, and I was embarrassed,” he said.

In reality, Rice was a willing mouthpiece for the two biggest promoters of the Internet video lie: President Obama and Hillary Clinton. In fact, the State Department spent $70,000 to run advertisements in Pakistan featuring the two of them rejecting the contents of the video, and promoting tolerance for all religions. Even more remarkable, despite committee Democrats implying that a thorough investigation was conducted internally by the State Department’s Accountability Review Board (ARB), Hillary Clinton was never interviewed by the ARB.

Hillary’s entire take on the matter can be whittled down to the infamous statement she made during the U.S. House Oversight Committee hearing on May 8, 2013. After being questioned as to why the administration misled the American people, Clinton became indignant. “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” she said. “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

Eric Nordstrom, who became emotional when he described his friends and other personnel who lost their lives in the attack, provided an answer to that question. “It matters to me personally and it matters to my colleagues–to my colleagues at the Department of State,” he said, his voice breaking. “It matters to the American public for whom we serve. And, most importantly, it matters to the friends and family of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods who were murdered on September 11, 2012.”

Nordstrom further testified in writing that Hillary Clinton waived security requirements for the Benghazi consulate despite high and critical threat levels in the six categories of security standards established under the Overseas Security Policy Board and the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999. The waiver can only be authorized by the Secretary of State, who cannot delegate that responsibility to someone else. “If the Secretary of State did not waive these requirements, who did so by ordering occupancy of the facilities in Benghazi and Tripoli?” Nordstrom wrote.

Nordstrom also offered his take on the ARB. “I found the ARB process that I was involved in to be professional and the unclassified recommendations reasonable and positive. However, it is not what is contained within the report that I take exception to but what is left unexamined,” Nordstrom wrote. “Specifically, I’m concerned with the ARB’s decision to focus its attention at the Assistant Secretary level and below, where the ARB felt that ‘the decision-making in fact takes place,’” he wrote.

Hicks testified that the State Department actively sought to intimidate witnesses in order to prevent facts surrounding the Benghazi attack from being leaked. He revealed that a top State Department official called him to demand a report from his meeting with a congressional delegation and expressed unhappiness that a State Department lawyer was not present for the session. “I was instructed not to allow the RSO, the acting deputy chief of mission–me–to be personally interviewed,” he said. Later in the hearing, Hicks noted that State seemed especially concerned with Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), who has done yeoman’s work tracking down the survivors of the attack, kept under wraps by the administration. “We were not to be personally interviewed by Congressman Chaffetz,” said Hicks, who added that Cheryl Mills, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff,  “demanded a report on the visit” that did take place.

The State Department was caught in another lie yesterday as well. While the hearings were getting underway, Republicans revealed that Ambassador Thomas Pickering, co-chairman of the ARB, refused to testify. State countered that Republicans refused to let him. Frederick Hill, spokesman for Committee chairman Darryl Issa (R-CA), produced a letter dated February 22 inviting Pickering to testify. “Ambassador Pickering initially told the Committee he was not available on that date,” Hill told ABC News. “When asked about a different date, he said he was not inclined to testify.”

The State Department isn’t the only entity interested in controlling the flow of information in this tragedy. House Democrats embarrassingly struggled to distract from the proceedings with absurd non sequiturs and personal attacks. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the ranking Democratic at the Benghazi hearing, told one of the whistleblowers to “protect your fellow employees.” Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) suggested it was unpatriotic to challenge the administration’s narrative. “I find it truly disturbing and very unfortunate that when Americans come under attack, the first thing some did in this country was attack Americans,” she said. “Attack the military; attack the president; attack the State Department; attack the former senator from the great state of New York, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.” Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO) blamed Republicans and congressional budget cuts for the terror attack, even as he apparently remains oblivious to the reality that it was Democrats who insisted the lion’s share of the budget cuts induced by sequestration come from the military.

Media are also shamelessly entrenched in the campaign to suppress the facts surround the Benghazi attack. Politico reports that CBS News execs are getting “increasingly frustrated” with premiere investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s stories on Benghazi, which they consider “dangerously close to advocacy.”

Dangerously close to honesty is more like it, which is exactly what CBS is worried about. As Washington Post explains, “While other media, particularly Fox News, have been similarly skeptical about the official narrative about Benghazi, Attkisson and CBS might put the story in a different light,” the paper reports. “As a much-decorated reporter from a news outlet often derided by conservatives as a liberal beacon, Attkisson and her network flip the usual script on this highly politicized story. That is, it’s hard to peg her and her network as Republican sympathizers out to score political points against a Democratic president.” With Attkisson, a self-described “political agnostic,” questioning the administration, Bengahzi can no longer be dismissed by the left as a vast right-wing conspiracy. “People can say what they want about me, I don’t care,” Attkisson says. “I just want to get the information out there.”

Attkisson notwithstanding, it remains to be seen whether the remainder of the mainstream media will now demand answers from the Obama administration on why it chose to needlessly throw American servicemen to the wolves in Benghazi and why, exactly, it was necessary to contrive a totally false account of events. The Obama administration is fighting hard to distract from the severity of the scandal. White House press secretary Jay Carney claimed that continued scrutiny of Benghazi is nothing more than an attempt by Republicans to “politicize” the issue. “This is a subject that has from its beginning been subject to attempts to politicize it by Republicans, while in fact what happened in Benghazi was a tragedy,” he said, adding that the incident has been “been looked at exhaustively.” Carney further noted that the ongoing pursuit is “part of an effort to chase after what isn’t the substance here.” The entire substance, according to Carney, is the reality that the consulate was attacked, four Americans were killed, and the president will make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Carney saved his most ridiculous assertion for last, claiming the administration’s editing of the talking points, in which wholesale changes and rampant deletions were made, (the details of which can be seen here) were “stylistic and not substantive.” “We’ve been very clear about the specific edits that were made at the suggestion of the White House.”

That is an utter lie. Version one of the CIA report included references to an “attack,” “Islamic extremists with ties to al Qa’ida,” the involvement of Ansar al Sharia and the fact that “wide availability of weapons and experienced fighters in Libya contributed to the lethality of the attacks,” which were all completely removed. Furthermore, at no time did any of the versions mention an anti-Islamic Internet video as being the catalyst for the attack.

The Obama administration can try spin this debacle any way it likes, but it can’t spin away four dead Americans, two separate “stand down” orders and the State Department’s advanced knowledge of inadequate security. They can’t change the reality that no rescue was even attempted over the course of a seven-hour battle, that brave Americans were left to fend for themselves, or that the administration sat on the details of this story for eight months — two most crucial of which occurred prior to the 2012 election.  Even now the administration continues to stonewall every effort to get to the truth.

But with the truth finally coming to the surface, the remaining question observers are left with is why the Obama administration abandoned Americans who were easily within reach. While the lies used to cover up this disaster are easy to explain, the rationale behind the unconscionable stand down orders must still be determined. As the facts stand now, the likely explanations do not bode well for President Obama. The circumstances suggest the decision was made by a callous and desperate president struggling with a re-election campaign, a central plank of which was that al-Qaeda had been decimated and was “on the run” — not something affirmed by news of al-Qaeda operatives’ murder of our ambassador and military personnel. Or perhaps our commander-in-chief was too busy being our campaigner-in-chief and simply didn’t care about the carnage unfolding on his watch, which he declined to prevent. In any case, it is incumbent on the Obama administration to provide a rationale for its disastrous decision. As persistent Americans have shown, the investigation will not cease until that occurs.

    Where was Barack Obama during those seven hours? Who is surprised by another media free pass for Obama? A fraternal kinship may be the reason why the mainstream media failed to properly vet presidential candidate Barack Obama and his illicit drug use back in 2008 and they are doubling-down in their effort to shroud him even now.

    Barack Obama boasted that he was not a lightweight like President Bill Clinton, who claimed that he "never inhaled." Obama was a proud sage — an accomplished drug user who bragged about consuming c0ca!ne and maariju@na.

    And who hasn't seen photos of him at banquets; hoisting a glass of wine where he looked more toasted than Toast Master?

    Am I the only one to suspect that our Commander in Chief was not in command of himself during those seven Lost Weekend-type hours?

  • truebearing

    Yes, the question is why did Obama and Hillary abandon four Americans to a violent death. Certainly they couldn't have known that Doherty and Woods would have made their heroic, self-less effort to save Stevens and Smith, but they knew Stevens was in trouble for a long time. They had to because they turned down his repeated pleas for more security. Instead they reduced his security.

    When Stevens was attacked, the Whitehouse did everything in its power to enable Al Queda's assassination of a US ambassador. They did absolutely nothing, and sustained their homicidal passivity for hours…while watching things unfold on Direct Drone TV.

    Yes, the question is why hang Stevens, and those who valiantly tried to save him, out to dry? If the answer is winning an election, then the inescapable conclusion is that Obama and Hillary see American lives as expendable when power is at stake. It means American sovereignty is expendable when their totalitarian agenda is threatened. It means both Obama and Hillary are so rapacious for power that no amount of suffering by Americans is too much if failing to achieve their objectives is the alternative.

      Wow…well said. Excellent analysis.

        Thanks. The whole situation is hard to believe, especially since 9/11 happened only a little more than decade ago.Of course, geniuses like Jay Carney would tell us that that is a long time ago. Funny that the Left doesn't feel that way about slavery, or anything else that is useful to demonize their enemies.

    • who cares?

      Even before I learned that Stevens, an enrolled member of the Chinook Indian Tribe, also happened to be gay, I wondered what he knew that made this a non-issue for the Obozo administration. Look, NO ONE hangs their valued diplomatic staff out to dry like this. Stevens was a mover in the DNC, a fund raiser, and got that job through political connections (most ambassadors do). So, WHY him? Why did other embassies get new cars, Marines, etc. during the period Stevens was begging for additional security– and the Libyan embassy did NOT. How was Stevens a danger to the administration– what did he know? This whole situation should result in impeachment proceedings and end Hillary's political career, but I'm not holding my breath.

      • truebearing

        I forgot to include that Hillary is the one who sent Stevens on this mission….after removing some of his security and refusing his pleas for more. Talk about a textbook circumstantial case for accusing her of setting Stevens up.

  • Michael Copeland

    A theory was put forward (at Atlas Shrugs, if memory serves) that the raid could have been a kidnapping plot to secure a high-value prize to exchange for the Blind Sheik. Alas, the attempt was overdone: the smoke suffocated the ambassador, who was not otherwise harmed.

    • noapologies

      Funny, I thought that from the early stages. My wife, who is very supportive of my "theories", said this was a bit out there. However, what better way to make the exchange, appease your brothers in the Brotherhood, and save face with the American people? After all, you only made the switch to save an American Ambassador? Brilliant (in their warped sense of the word brilliant) move until two American Hero's showed up and stomped on those roaches. Once botched, the roaches felt betrayed and killed the Ambassador…..abandon ship…..lipstick this pig until the election is over and America will forget about it like they always do. As you can see, they were right for the most part. Justice will not be served here, those days have passed us by. My only hope is that this is enough of a fly in the ointment to keep Hillary from winning in 2016. I believe that's why the Republicans are pressing. Semper Fidelis

      I think he was assassinated for the same reasons that President Stinky (BO) Benghazi and his boy Eric had Agent Terry murdered.

Give the poor man a break. An American ambassador sodomized, murdered and dragged through the streets prompted a rapid response from Washington – the midnight knock on the door of a filmmaker and his subsequent arrest ( for making an insulting film about Mohammed, oops – I mean for parole violations ) – followed by his jailing for a year. What other response would you want from a president – a search for the killer of Chris Stevens perhaps? Cut the poor man some slack!!

      To claim someone does not care is an opinion and generalization. Regardless of political alignment people care about loss of lives. Both sides cared when we found out that the WDM's were a lie and that we had ended 230,000 lives in Iraq who had nothing to do with 9/11 or any attack on us. Everyone cares when peoples lives are cut short and it could have been prevented.

      • V_O

        I, for one, am sick of hearing the sophmoric WMD relativity argument.

        When I was a child, I often went to the "But they did it, too" defense, which was invariably answered by my parents with "If they jumped off a bridge, would you think that was a good idea too?" Or "Two wrongs don't make a right."

        This is not to say that the WMD situation in 2002 and 2003 constitutes an actual leg, for those who use it, to stand on. The fact that your WMD comparison is full of holes large enough to drive a truck through brings to mind the childhood strategy of getting one's parents engaged in a discussion on something totally off topic… That's the one that worked on a rare blessed occasion to deflect their attention from the situation at hand.

        The fact that you, Sid, and so many others like you are trotting out this lame same ol', same ol' counter argument non-defense is proof enough for me that there really IS no defense for the administration in this case.

          It's a way of devolving the discussion and creating opportunities to evade justice or conclusion. It's obviously very dishonest but since it's so common, I guess that's OK now. It's a new tradition of the globalist-leftists. After all, those guys who wrote the Bible lied more than anyone else in history, so non-believers can lie for about another 1700 years or more just to get even.

          That's fairness to a Marxist. It's an illustration of the concept of "social justice" and where it leads: It's never ending delusion-based revenge of the lunatics.

        Much of the info about WMDs the Bush administration had came from British intelligence and reports from the Clinton administration. Or is that something you forgot?

        As far as people caring about others, I think the fact that Obama and Clinton have done and continue to do everything they can to prevent the release of info about what really happened is indicative of how much they care about the lives those four men. Clinton's question what does it matter was so self-serving it was beyond the pale.

    So???? Therefore ….???? We now know nothing, NOTHING will happen even if it is conclusively accepted Obama lied, conspired to abandon, neglected to act, was politically motivated, etc., etc. That Hillary lied, conspired, neglected and was politically motivated, etc., etc. and that all the others named as incompetent at best and criminal at worst have been identified. Committee investigations have resulted in nothing happening to those proven to be responsible for their incompetence, negligence and criminality. So we must ask, why is anyone asking if nothing will happen to those responsible? Government activity is an ongoing exercise in failure….

      Ambassador Pickering was “inclined” not to testify but did the Republicans think to encourage him with a subpoena? Why, no, it appears. And the identity of the persons or persons who issued “stand down” orders appears destined never to be revealed. Similarly, a general acted to send help but was apparently instantly relieved. Are the Republicans interested in the identity of the officer who was primed to instantly have his subordinate relieved? Apparently not.

    Bush Administration : 54 attacks on American Embassies / 23 Americans killed / 3 hearings
    Obama Benghazi Attack 4 Americans killed 9 hearings ….and counting .

      Bush-Cheney were not traitors against their own country…There were no attacks on American soil after 911 due to HomeLand Security, and other counter measures put in place, and a competent administration that were hell bent on fighting the war on terror, not encouraging it! We need to face the facts that Islam is in all parts of our government, making the decisions at the top that affect the FBI, CIA, and other resources…they are not condusive to a sound, safe, and secure United States! Bush-Cheney would never leave soldiers or military people to die in a foreign land! Chew on that for awhile!

    • pagegl

      Name an ambassador killed during any of those attacks during Bush's adminstration? Did the Bush administration ever deny a request to upgrade security? Did the Bush administration attempt to coverup what they did relative to those attacks? Did the Bush administration push a blatant lie about what happened in any of those attacks?

    • NAHALKIDES

      One difference is that Bush never refused a request for increased security. Another is that he never would have refused to try to rescue our personnel when they were fighting for their lives. Bottom line – there was nothing like Benghazi under the Bush administration, your wishful thinking notwithstanding.

    Both Hilary and Barack are guilty of self indulgence, and reading and believing their own press clippings. There is no doubt in my mind that both have let down the American people big time.
    Obama's offense can be considered impeachable.
    Hilary's oversight should exclude her from future Presidential aspirations.
    In either case, they should pay the ultimate penalty.

  • tagalog

    I doubt that President Obama or Sec. of State Clinton were motivated by re-election concerns or by a concern for the propaganda that al-Qaeda was decimated and hanging on by its nails.

    I don't know what their motivations were, but I don't think those are the ones. A benign explanation could be the fog of events rapidly unfolding, with an inappropriate emphasis on the presence of airplanes 2-3 hours away with no ability to refuel them in midflight by tanker. But why the response teams were told to stand down, who knows? Maybe there was concern that the numbers of troops was too small.

    Or maybe there's something more sinister going on. Frankly, I think it's just fallible human beings making mistakes. They're the leaders, so they have to answer for it anyway. But I don't think anybody did anything evil. Then they tried to gloss it over and told outrageous lies that were patent from the first. That's also human fallibility at work, though of a more faulty, political, variety.

    Hillary Clinton, however, deserves reproach for her "at this point, what difference does it make?" remark; anyone could see in an instant what difference it makes. Whether spontaneous or planned makes a big difference, the difference between impulse and premeditation.

      Then you think that the administration's narrative for two weeks that the Benghazi attack was the result of an "anti-Islamic video" was just a "mistake" despite the absence of any support for that narrative from the U.S. diplomatic and intelligence communities, irrespective of the Libyan leadership's announcement that there was no protest and the video had nothing to do with what happened, and inspite of the undisputed fact that there had been no anti-video demonstration in Benghazi. Wow, that's quite a "mistake."

      • tagalog

        No, as I wrote, I think THAT was a lie, an attempt to gloss their mistakes over, not a mistake in itself but a coverup.

        davidfarrar may be right about something bigger going on, time will tell, I think, now that the hearings are getting some traction among the MSM and not just the right wing channels. They might actually have the willingness to do some investigative journalism, assuming there's any journalists as opposed to TV actors left in their ranks.

    Is there any connection between the events at Benghazi and President Obama's unilateral attack on Libya and the removal of Muamar Gadaffi as the ruler?

    • derekcrane

      …or perhaps the shooting of Osama bin Laden?

    • NAHALKIDES

      Yes, there's one: the events in Benghazi would never have happened if Obama had not decided to intervene in a war with Libya to remove Quaddafi, which empowered Islamist groups some of whom then attacked the compound. Preserving the fictitious narrative that Obama had Islamic terrorists on the run was very much the motive for the cover-up.

      • jimnjoy

        My conversations with Obama supporters indicate to me that the terrorists being on the run would not have made any difference to them. Nothing that happens makes any difference to them. The Democrats overestimate the reasoning skills and deductive logic of their minions. They are deceived and deluded and have drank the Kool-Aid. Seeing their reaction to these hearings validates that thought.

  • jimnjoy

    I don't think Obama was really that interested or made aware of what was actually happening. He role in this administration is only as an electable figure-head…he had other things on his mind and his assignment at that time was to campaign and get elected. I'm sure he thought that whatever was happening would be "handled"…like every other inconvenient issue of his life. His administration is being handled by anti-Americans like Valerie Jarrett. However, this does not excuse either him or Hillary because whoever made the decisions…gave the orders…were doing so in accordance with previous policy, and, ultimately, the buck stops with the people at the top.

    • jimnjoy

      You are correct that not all the "facts" are evident. It's going to boil down to who we believe. Is it a fact that "stand down" was ordered…twice? Seemingly credible people have different recollections. One indisputable fact is that our embassies and personnel in foreign countries deserve to be respected and protected. One indisputable fact is that this administration has previously refused to acknowledge the inconvenient "fact" that we are dealing with Islamic extremists, both here and abroad. Ford Hood was not "work-place violence".

    • reader

      Fact number one: stand down order was given at least once, in all likelihood twice – the attack in progress. Fact number two: intentionally false narrative would be used to alter CIA talking points. Fact three: intentionally false information would be dissemenated in the media about what happened and why. Fact four: people would be denied access and prevented from testifying as to what exactly had happened. Fact five: Obama still refuses to clearly explain what he was doing on the night of the attack.

    • NAHALKIDES

      Well, if you're going to deliberately ignore or misunderstand facts when presented to you, it's pointless to have a discussion. But here's three rock-solid facts for you to chew on:

      1. The military and security personnel wanted to stage a rescue, but were ordered to stand down. We still don't know by whom, although we certainly have grounds for suspicion. It matters, because whoever issued the order condemned our men to death.

      2. The State Dept. official you mentioned, Greg Hicks, is not waiting for a promotion to come, he was actively demoted – that is his sworn testimony.

      3. Hicks told Hillary Clinton early on the morning of Sept. 12 that it was a terrorist attack. Thus, every time she later blamed the attack on a video, she was lying, that is, she knew perfectly well no video was to blame even as she claimed otherwise.

      4. Obama told the same lie as Clinton, and he told it repeatedly.

      There's a lot more already out there, and still more to come, but this should be enough to condemn Obama and Clinton in anyone's eyes. They are unfit to hold public office.

      5. Obama never contacted his Joint Chiefs chairman or his Secretary of Defense after the initial meeting

    The Republican inquisition over the attacks against Americans in Benghazi has never really gone away, but it appears as though in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing and the House Oversight Committee's Benghazi hearings this week there are renewed psycho-histrionics over Benghazi.

    Lindsey Graham and Fox News Channel in particular are each crapping their cages over new allegations from an alleged whistleblower, while they continue to deal in previously debunked falsehoods about the sequence of events during and following the attacks. Fox News is predictably helming the biggest raft of hooey on the situation — turning its attention to Hillary Clinton in an abundantly obvious early move to stymie her presidential run before it even begins. It appears as if no one, including and especially the traditional press, intends to ask any of these obnoxious, opportunistic liars about why they're so obsessed by this one attack yet they entirely ignored the dozen-plus consulate/embassy attacks that occurred when George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were allegedly "keeping us safe."

Hillary and Obama knew that once the American People found out she Denied Multiple requests for assistance from Stevens, that her prospects for the Presidency would be in Peril. So the mythical 'Spontaneous Mob' and video excuse was hatched. How could Hillary have anticipated a spontaneous Mob attack? But then there were witnesses that wouldn't shut up. The leftist media has come to the rescue.

    It appears that Top Secret decisions such as Embassy Security are just low level communications in the Obama State Department. Normally, Security staffing decisions are made at the highest levels as Ambassadors are the equivalent rank of Four Star Generals. Ambassador Stevens was the highest ranking member of the US Government to be Tortured and then murdered by Terrorists in US History. Democrats are far more worried about protecting Hillary and Obama than telling the truth. How many more people have to die to protect Hillary?
