Last December, Clinton’s staff told four mid-level officials to clean-out their desks and leave as a result of Benghazi. People had to hang for Benghazi and it wasn’t going to be Hillary.
Someone was already paying the price – the filmmaker, a man who had nothing to do with the attack in Benghazi. Hillary knew that but still scapegoated him. She indirectly sent him to jail for something people don’t usually go to jail over in California’s overcrowded prisons.
One of the four who had to pay was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Raymond Maxwell, the only official from State’s Near Eastern Affairs to lose his job over Benghazi and who had no responsibility for anything that went on there.
He received a memo from the State Department’s HR on Monday informing him to come back to work.
“No explanation, no briefing, just come back to work. So I will go in tomorrow,” Maxwell said.
The reasons for his banishment were never explained to him in the first place. He said that he had little role in Libya policy and no involvement whatsoever in the events that led up to Benghazi. Now he only wants to restore his honor.
The others who were put on leave are now returned to duty and will not face disciplinary action.
The ARB under General Pickering placed the blame for the failures of Benghazi on the mid-level officials. The reversal of the ARB’s recommendations points to the inadequacy of the report commissioned by the Obama administration.
John Kerry quietly put them back to work after examining all records almost a year after the event.
Congress was always concerned that mid-level officials who had no direct involvement with the events of Benghazi were being scapegoated.
“The ARB tried to blame everyone but hold no one responsible, except for some of the lower level people who were not in control of the situation,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), chairman of the House Oversight National Security subcommittee, told The Daily Beast in May.
