Posted on 05/21/2013 4:58:37 PM PDT by EXCH54FE
One of the four State Department employees, who was recently disciplined by their former boss Hillary Clinton, has broken his silence concerning Benghazi and has leveled some very big charges at the former Secretary of State. He is now indicating that the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her staff were the ones that led the review of the Benghazi attacks, not an independent board.
The Daily Beast reports,
Raymond Maxwell was placed on forced administrative leave after the State Departments own internal investigation, conducted by an Administrative Review Board (ARB) led by former State Department official Tom Pickering. Five months after he was told to clean out his desk and leave the building, Maxwell remains in professional and legal limbo, having been associated publicly with the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American for reasons that remain unclear.
Maxwell, who served as deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs from August 2011 until his removal last December, following tours in Iraq and Syria, spoke publicly for the first time in an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast.
The overall goal is to restore my honor, said Maxwell, who has filed grievances regarding his treatment with the State Departments Human Resources Bureau and the American Foreign Service Association, which represents the interests of foreign-service officers. The other three officials placed on leave were in the Diplomatic Security Bureau, leaving Maxwell as the only official in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), which had responsibility for Libya, to lose his job.
I had no involvement to any degree with decisions on security and the funding of security at our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, he said.

This Raymond Maxwell guy is one ballsy dude. He ain’t goin’ down without a fight.
This REALLY IS a bombshell.
In case you missed it ping.
“Fire him? I don’t recall. Review board? No, I don’t remember. Benghazi? Never heard of it. State Department? No, I don’t recall being associated. Secretary of State? No, I don’t remember being Secretary of State. Now if you have no further questions, Congressman, let’s just Move On.”
That explains why they did not need to interview her for the review.
For reasons not entirely clear, Obama is out to get Hillary.
You know, the wife of the man who said about Obama, “a few years ago he’d be getting us our coffee”.
Get that b^%ch back on the stand...under OATH.
