The final Benghazi report has been released and as Judge Napolitano said this morning on Fox New’s Fox & Friends, Hillary Clinton’s capacity for lying is extraordinary. “It is no disputed and it’s not disputable that Hillary Clinton knew the truth and lied about it and perpetuated the lie for weeks after Benghazi.”
She knew it was al Qaeda and “even perpetrated the myth that this was caused by a video, as the bodies were being received at Andrews Air Force Base.
The weapons came from the US to rid Libya of Colonel Gaddafi. Hillary concocted the idea and authorized the shipment of weapons to militia/terrorist groups, some of whom killed Chris Stephans.
State Department spokesperson Mark Fallon slammed the report as partisan on twitter but just the fact that this was the first committee to talk to the 80 witnesses is remarkable and showed the need for this investigation.
While the men tried to save lives and protect weaponry or secrets or whatever on a roof in Benghazi, top administration officials huddled to craft their public response.
One anti-terrorism security team sat waiting for three hours in Rota, Spain, as Marines changed “in and out of their uniforms four times,” and even debated whether they should carry personal weapons, according to one witness, and as reported by Fox News.
Secretary of Defense Leon Panneta’s orders were not followed and no muscular force was sent.
NBC News wrote that the report highlights the military’s failure to carry out Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s order to deploy forces to Benghazi and the lengthy delay that prevented the military assets from arriving at the embassy in Tripoli until 2 p.m. the day after the Benghazi attack.
“What was disturbing from the evidence the Committee found was that at the time of the final lethal attack at the Annex, no asset ordered deployed by the Secretary had even left the ground,” the report states.
In addition, “Security deficiencies plagued the Benghazi Mission compound in the lead-up to September 2012.”
I haven’t had a chance to go through the rather lengthy report yet but it must also be mentioned that knowing what she knew, Hillary lied to the families of the dead about the video, saw that the videographer was imprisoned on a trivial charge, and then later called out four family members of the dead as liars when they said she told them it was about the video and she would get the videographer.
If this is what you want for president, a woman who presented no leadership and lied about it, then go for it.
The mainstream media is playing down the report. Instead of calling her out for lying, they are saying she didn’t present a strong enough case.
