Skip to comments.What the Benghazi attack taught me about Hillary Clinton
Posted on 09/11/2016 4:56:20 AM PDT by libstripper
Last month, I retired from the State Department after 25 years of public service as a Foreign Service officer. As the Deputy Chief of Mission for Libya, I was the last person in Tripoli to speak with Ambassador Chris Stevens before he was murdered in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on our Benghazi post. On this, the fourth anniversary of the Benghazi tragedy, I would like to offer a different explanation for Benghazis relevance to the presidential election than is usually found in the press. (My emphasis.)

Trump needs to get hold of Mr. Hicks...ASAP!!
From the article....
There are no punitive measures for breaching these two laws. Mrs. Clinton will not have to appear before judge and jury to account for her failures. Is this why she felt these laws could be ignored? Because she is now the Democratic presidential candidate, only the American electorate will have the opportunity to hold her accountable.
Candidate Clinton and her campaign point to her record as secretary of state as a positive qualification for the presidency.
However, the record shows that Secretary Clinton persuaded the president to overthrow Qaddafi and advocated maintaining a diplomatic presence in Benghazi after the Libyan revolution. And then she abandoned her diplomats by ignoring her security obligations. She sent Ambassador Stevens to Benghazi during the 2011 revolution and then induced him to return in the first few months of his tenure, which accounted for his September visit there. Despite the fact that Sidney Blumenthal had alerted her to the increasing danger for Americans in Benghazi and Libya, Mrs. Clinton apparently never asked security professionals for an updated briefing on the situation in Libya. Either she could not correlate the increased tempo of attacks in Libya with the safety of our diplomats, demonstrating fatal incompetence, or she was grossly negligent.
If Mrs. Clinton was unable to fulfill her security obligations to the federal employees she was legally obligated to protect as secretary of state, how can we trust her with the security of our entire country? I wont.
That is going to leave a mark....as well it should.
People are coming out of the woodwork to keep the witch out of the WH. I’d guess most have had personal encounters with her. From what I hear she’s a monster.
I don’t think any of us doubts Hillary’s fitness as a leader.
Will this make a mark on the voters who might vote for her anyway because they think Trump is mean? Time will tell.
She’s a Democrat...they are A:: EVIL!
Obama and Hillary Blame Youtube Video for Benghazi Terrorist Attack as Coffins Arrive
This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. Weve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. Weve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing do to with.
The most unsettling read I’ve had in awhile. This man put country before himself by writing this piece. As someone with first hand knowledge, he stuck a fork in the mantra of the left, “Hillary is THE most qualified for the office of President”.
I hope he has good security.
Trump commercial? Why not. If he put it in writing he would make a commercial.
[I]t was not my ball to carry.
(What difference does it make now?)
Hillary Clinton is a coward.
Her performance as Secretary of State during the attack at Benghazi proved that she is a coward.
And her cowardice resulted in untold misery.
I admire Margaret Thatcher for her courage.
I loathe Hillary Clinton for her cowardice.
You might want to check the “Benghazi Brief” of Sundance over at Conservative Tree House...it’s loaded with all kinds of goodies and I don’t know how to post a link on Free Republic...but he has it up again today.
We were running a gun running operation out of Benghazi to Isis and other anti Assad folks in Syria and selling them Quadaffi’s guns...Operation “footprint zero” well that footprint needs to be targeted to Clinton’s copious rear end so that she is made responsible for the deaths of four Americans at that compound.
“People are coming out of the woodwork to keep the witch out of the WH. Id guess most have had personal encounters with her. From what I hear shes a monster.”
Wonderful. This is the same kind of direct personal testimony evidence that doomed Kerry’s presidential bid when the heroic SwiftVets moved against him.
Read Hebrews 9:27.
She will stand before THE JUDGE.
I appreciate he’s come forward and written this but why didn’t he write it earlier so we had this info to keep her from running for the presidency? Oh, I know! He wanted to keep getting his paycheck and his pension.
Also, can we retire that fatuous job description “public servant”? Most public servants serve themselves.
They could have her saying it was not my ball to carry, and then read her responsibilities. Good idea.
