Benghazi Lies Make Hillary Unfit to Be President
The mainstream media is euphoric. Their printers and TV screens shout that House Select Committee on Benghazi chairman Trey Gowdy has capitulated and the Committee should fold its tent and quit. Why all the Progressive confetti? Gowdy is quoted saying there was nothing the military could have done on the night of September 11, 2012, to stop the attacks in Benghazi. He told Fox News : “Whether or not they could have gotten there in time, I don’t think there is any issue with respect to that. They couldn't." ~~~~~ A key component in the Benghazi "stand down" theory is the idea that the military could have intervened in Benghazi attack but was prevented, for political reasons. Far-left MSNBC said : "Military leaders, the State Department, and multiple congressional investigations all concluded that the conspiracy theory is wrong....even Gowdy...doesn’t believe the core question at the heart of the investigation." That's rubbish. ~~~~~ The quoted Gowdy comment was incomplete. In his Fox interview, Gowdy went on to question why the military could not save American lives during the 13-hour assault at the Benghazi diplomatic compound that later engulfed a nearby CIA annex. Here is the rest of Gowdy's comment : "The next question is, why could you not get there in time? Why were you not positioned to do it?" ~~~~~ Gowdy says questions remain about why military assets were not positioned closer to the volatile region. Damning evidence against Democrat and media posturing is the fact that after the Benghazi attacks, DOD repositioned its regional assets to better respond to any similar future attacks. In addition, more military guards are now posted at diplomatic facilities, according to a 2014 congressional report. Gowdy's investigators are trying to interview service members who have publicly alleged that military planes could have been sent to Benghazi but were not deployed. But, Gowdy has been stonewalled by Pentagon delays in locating the witnesses, who could help uncover how and why the Pentagon responded that night. ~~~~~ A new witness may be able to expose the Obama/Clinton/Panetta lie that the military was out of range : a US Air Force member stationed in Italy during the Benghazi attacks insists the US could have done more to help the four Americans who were killed. The man told Fox News : “I definitely believe that our aircraft could have taken off and got there in a timely manner, maybe three hours at the most, in order to…at least stop that second mortar attack and have those guys running for the hills, and basically save lives that day.” ~~~~~ And, an email uncovered by the watchdog Judicial Watch confirms that a Benghazi rescue not only could have been attempted but was ready to go, and that Hillary should have known. The JW-released Benghazi email went from then-DOD Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash to State Department leaders, immediately offering “forces that could move to Benghazi.” It was sent to top State Department officials at 7:19 p.m. ET, just hours after the attack started. Bash said : “we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.” (The Obama administration redacted from the released email the details of the military forces available.) But, Bash’s email contradicts testimony of then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta before the Senate Armed Services Committee in February 2012, where Panetta claimed that “time, distance, the lack of an adequate warning, events that moved very quickly on the ground prevented a more immediate response.” State Department recipients of the urgent email were Jacob Sullivan, Clinton deputy chief of staff; Wendy Sherman, undersecretary of state for political affairs, the fourth ranking State official; and Thomas Nides, deputy secretary of state for management and resources. ~~~~~ Dear readers, Hillary Clinton knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack, failed to order a rescue, and then covered up her lies, resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Ty Woods, Glenn Doherty, and Sean Smith. Mrs. Clinton is unfit to be President.
