    The State Department’s second-ranking diplomat in Libya on the day that terrorists attacked the U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods says a key lesson Americans should take from that event is that officials in Washington, D.C. have a responsibility to make sure Americans serving their country abroad have the ability to protect themselves. “That did not happen in Benghazi,” says Gregory Hicks, who was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli on Sept. 11, 2012. […] Hicks told that he and Stevens saw the move...

    Clinton's secret arms dealing -- and how it led to disaster in Libya. Hillary Clinton led the charge in the Obama administration to go to war in Libya. Her objective was to overthrow the regime of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. Not one to be deterred by opponents in the Pentagon and Congress to her reckless interventionist plans, Hillary decided to end-run them. Her State Department helped facilitate what Andrew P. Napolitano in his scathing article has called “Hillary’s secret war.” When the secret war began to backfire, as arms ended up in the hands of anti-American jihadists, Hillary Clinton and other...

    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 Benghazi’s relevance to the presidential election than is usually found in the press.

    An email released Monday pertaining to the Benghazi investigation from Hillary Clinton’s private email server revealed that a message detailing the location of murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens passed through the unsecured server, raising the possibility that terrorists could have intercepted the message. According to Breitbart, the April 10, 2011, email from State Department employee Timmy Davis was forwarded to the server by Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin. “The situation in Ajdabiyah has worsened to the point where Stevens is considering departure from Benghazi,” Davis’ email read. “The envoy’s delegation is currently doing a phased checkout (paying the hotel bills, moving some...

    Among the nearly 900 pages of Hillary Clinton's emails the U.S. State Department released on Friday is one that indicates she may have been confused, exhausted or careless on the September 2012 night when four Americans died in a Benghazi, Libya terror attack. As U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other personnel lay dead and America's diplomatic outpost there lay in smoldering ruins, Clinton asked her three closest aides for advice about how to announce the death of 'Chris Smith.' That name – the wrong one – was the subject line of the email Clinton sent them as...

    As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton basked in a diplomatic “Moscow Spring,” seizing on Vladimir Putin’s break from the presidency to help seal a nuclear arms-control treaty and secure Russia’s acquiescence to a NATO-led military intervention in Libya. But when Putin returned to the top job, things changed. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has vowed to stand up to Putin if elected, drawing on her four years of ups and downs as the public face of President Barack Obama’s first-term “reset” with Russia. By comparison, her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, has rung alarm bells in Washington and Europe with his...

    President Obama said Saturday that he is "concerned" by the FBI assessment that the State Department has acted carelessly in handling classified information. "I am concerned," he told reporters at a news conference in Warsaw Saturday, according to Reuters . But he cast the problem as a government-wide struggle to keep up technology and the fast-paced flow of information. "The advent of email and texts and smart phones is just generating enormous amounts of data," Obama said, which is "putting enormous pressure on the department to sort through it, classify it properly." In concluding the FBI's investigation into former Secretary...

    Shortly after U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens was slain during an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi last September, his sister Anne Stevens received a call from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Stevens, a Seattle doctor, recalled Clinton saying that “justice would be done” for Chris Stevens’ death. But those words struck Stevens as exactly wrong. “This was not at all how my brother would have reacted — I never heard him talk like that,” said Stevens, a specialist in autoimmune conditions at Seattle Children’s.

And Stevens’ family agrees. “I do not blame Hillary Clinton or [former Defense Secretary] Leon Panetta,” Anne Stevens, MD, Chris’ sister who has served as the family spokesperson since his death, told the New Yorker’s Robin Wright. “They were balancing security efforts at embassies and missions around the world.

    The State Department watchdog, in an extensive and detailed report, accused Hillary Clinton of flouting federal records rules and cybersecurity guidelines with her exclusive use of personal email for government business while secretary of state. The forthcoming inspector general audit, a copy of which was obtained Wednesday by, faults Clinton and her predecessors for poorly managing email and other computer information. The report says the department was “slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cybersecurity risks associated with electronic data communications.” It cites “longstanding, systemic weaknesses” related to communications that started before Clinton's tenure.

    The White House sought Monday to share the blame for the failed aftermath of the 2011 intervention in Libya, arguing the U.S. and its NATO allies asked too few questions about what would follow after dictator Moammar Gadhafi was toppled. A day after President Barack Obama called that failure the worst mistake of his presidency, the White House said Obama believed more should have been done to fill the power vacuum. Although the U.S. played a leading role in that effort, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama’s regrets extended to what “the United States and the rest of the...

    Paraphrasing Ben Shapiro, Hillary's most obvious lies during her testimony on Thursday, Oct. 22 included: 1) still claiming that the Benghazi attack had something to do with the YouTube video; 2) stating that she had not used Sidney Blumenthal as an advisor for official business (against Obama's wishes) and that his emails were unsolicited; 3) insisting (again) that she had been fully transparent about her emails; and 4) suggesting that Chris Stevens, the dead ambassador, was responsible for his own death, while pretending to care about him and the others. These despicable, bald-faced lies lend a lot a credence to...

    In a monumental display of self-serving chutzpah, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was there to testify before the Benghazi Select Committee to honor the service and memory of the four men killed in the terrorist attack. Then why, Madam Secretary, did you tell the parents of the dead as you and they stood in front of their sons’ caskets that you were going to get the maker of the video you blamed for their deaths?

    Just two days before Hillary Clinton’s testimony to the House Benghazi Committee, the State Department presented lawmakers with a huge trove of Ambassador Chris Stevens’ emails: #BREAKING: The State Dept *just* delivered nearly 1,300 printed pages of new emails from Ambassador Chris Stevens. #Benghazi — Benghazi Committee (@HouseBenghazi) October 20, 2015 Yesterday, Fox News obtained one of Stevens’ cables from July 2012, and found him pleading for decent security protection… a plea that fell on deaf ears in Hillary Clinton’s department. In the July 9, 2012 cable, Stevens reported that, “Overall security conditions continue to be unpredictable, with large numbers...

    Democrats are criticizing a TV ad sponsored by a political action committee that opposes Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential bid. The ad shows the grave of Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador killed in Benghazi, Libya. The 30-second ad by the Stop Hillary PAC aired on CNN in Washington, New York and other media markets during Tuesday’s Democratic debate. It also shows photos of Stevens and three other Americans killed during the 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi. Democrats on the House Benghazi committee condemned the ad Wednesday and said Stevens’ image was used without his family’s permission. …

    The United States supported the secret supply of weapons to Libyan rebels while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State according to federal court documents obtained by Fox News. In a sworn declaration to the District Court of Arizona May 5th 2015, a career CIA officer David Manners said, "It was then, and remains now, my opinion that the United States did participate, directly or indirectly, in the supply of weapons to the Libyan Transitional National Council." The timing matters because in the Spring of 2011 the Libyan opposition was not formally recognized, and the direct supply of arms was not...

    From Bare Naked Islam: Barack Hussein Obama together with Hillary Clinton decided to aid and abet al-Qaeda terrorists and Libyan Muslim Brotherhood jihadists to overthrow U.S. ally Muammar Ghaddafi and replace all the secular leaders in the Middle East with sharia-compliant Muslim Brotherhood governments. Former CIA Operations and Intelligence Analyist, Officer, Clare Lozez, says that “America has switched sides in the war on terror under Barack Obama.” She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Sharia,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim...
  • Michael Morell’s Misguided Benghazi Defense

    Michael Morell, the former deputy director of the CIA, has been out pimping his book The Great War of Our Time in which he spends 47 pages massaging the issue of Benghazi. I have not read the book, but I did read his recent column in Politico. If his book is anything like his column then it is clear we still need to dig deeper as to what happened and what was done by the U.S. government. Morell did not stoop as low as Julian Castro, current HUD secretary and prospective running mate for the anointed Hillary, in his comments...

    After Ambassador J. Chris Stevens was killed in the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not even know his name. New emails released today show that Ms. Clinton thought the Ambassador's name was "Chris Smith," and referred to him as such in two separate emails. The first, sent by Ms. Clinton from her secret "Hrod17" email at 11:38 pm, had the subject of "Chris Smith" and asked if the State Department should announce his death: In response, Cheryl Mills, the Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary Clinton, did not correct...

    The night a U.S. ambassador was killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, Hillary Clinton sent a message three senior State Department officials. The recepients were Jake Sullivan, Deputy Chief of Staff to then-Secretary of State Clinton, Cheryl Mills, an adviser to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and Counselor and Chief of Staff to the Secretary, and Victoria Jane Nuland, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.

    In 2011 and 2012, Hillary Rodham Clinton received at least 25 memos about Libya from Sidney Blumenthal, a friend and confidant who at the time was employed by the Clinton Foundation. The memos, written in the style of intelligence cables, make up about a third of the almost 900 pages of emails related to Libya that Mrs. Clinton said she kept on the personal email account she used exclusively as secretary of state. Some of Mr. Blumenthal’s memos appeared to be based on reports supplied by American contractors he was advising as they sought to do business in Libya. Mr....
