"They're making up for all the mistakes they made with excuse."
In this space over the last two days, we have focused on the three part series by Fox News still looking for the truth and answers to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, diplomat Sean Smith, and former SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
Below is the Part III report by Adam Housley in which the military Special Operator with intimate knowledge of the Benghazi attack charges that the Obama Administration "had no plan" of how to respond to the attack despite the multiple security warnings that preceded that fateful night. The expert "monitored the Benghazi attack in real time" according to Housley.
"They're making up for all the mistakes they made with excuse," the expert claims, referring specifically to the failings of the State Department to adequately prepare and a serious communications failing between State and the Department of Defense.
The Special Operator notes that a distress call for "all available assets in the vicinity for help" was issued during the attack, but the State Department never gave permission for the military to engage. Housley specifically identifies Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, and Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy as the responsible derelict officials.
Why are the Benghazi perpetrators still free?
Next is the third installment report regarding revelations that at least four officials with the CIA and State Department want to come forward with details about the Benghazi attack with "whistleblower" protection, but that protection has not been afforded them. In fact, through Victoria Toensing, comes a claim that the officials feel they have been threatened to keep silent.
Toensing asserts "with certainty" that the four whistleblowers have information that is inconsistent with the Obama Administration's account of the attack.
It is worth noting that Toensing is a highly respected and accomplished lawyer having previous experience as Counsel for the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, Deputy Assistant Attorney General during the Reagan Administration where she headed the Terrorism Unit at the Justice Department. Toensing's responsibilities included investigating and prosecuting the hijacking of TWA flight 847, the bombing of Pan Am flight 103, and the terrorist capture of the cruise ship Achille Lauro.
WH responds to accusations of blocking Libya whistleblowers
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Thanks for adding me. I was discussing the story with a far lefty. Even he concedes a massive cover-up..
What`s the question(s), NOT being asked?
1. What/why was an Ambassador doing a what was basically just a large house / consulate ?
2. With whom did he meet if with anyone?
3. Was it with any foreign officials or individuals acting on behalf of another country?
4. Was it a Turkish official?
5. What did they discuss? Did it include gun-running from Libya at the request of Obama to terrorist groups fighting the Assad Govt. in Syria?
Never heard Issa or anyone ask those question yet so it might be a big ruse deflection of possible Treasonous activities from Obama,Holder and Clinton.
Can’t wait till Wednesday!
Has Issa officially made a statement releasing the names of those he expects to testify? It was reported he would do it today. He or others have hinted it could include other witnesses besides the three who have been named.
6-8. How much money was on hand? Who was paying whom ? For what?
Follow the money!
I can’t wait either. But for some reason I think I will be disappointed in the outcome. It always turns out that way with these Committee Hearings. The Congressmen always waist their time making unneeded long winded statements during their time to ask questions.
“Cant wait till Wednesday!”
They never had some solid witnesses until now. It was just a fluff q and a with the state d and then the Hillary fiasco. The central question is this, “WILL CROSS BORDER AUTHORITY EVER BE DISCUSSED?”
That is the central issue that will damn Obama.
we demand to see the autopsy report for Ambassador Stevens.
