  • Hillary takes heat after discovery she slept through president’s Benghazi briefing

    Apparently, Hillary Clinton isn’t even ready for the 10 a.m. phone call. Information obtained from her emails released by the State Department Friday revealed that Clinton missed President Obama’s first daily intel briefing after the 2012 terrorist attacks on Benghazi. “I just woke up,” the former secretary of state wrote at 10:43 a.m on Sept 15, 2012. It was a far cry from her 2008 campaign ad against then-Sen. Barack Obama asking if he would be ready for a 3 a.m. phone call.

    Newly reported emails indicate Hillary Clinton was personally made aware of security dangers in the months leading up to the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. That’s according to the House Benghazi Committee, which has obtained 300 long-sought emails from the State Department among tens of thousands under subpoena. The Benghazi Committee says there are a number of emails in which State Department personnel specifically passed along security issues to Clinton in 2011 and 2012 before the attacks. An August 2012 email to then-Secretary of State Clinton from one of her top aides, Jake Sullivan,...

A week after that, having failed to twist a major corporation’s arm into censoring a politically unhelpful bit of free speech on its behalf, the State Department started running ads in Pakistan denouncing the movie, in hopes that jihadi savages would be appeased by the show of national contrition and not target any more embassies.

    (CNN)-The day after the Benghazi terror attack, a staffer for Arizona Sen. John McCain emailed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's office to convey praise for her remarks to State Department employees after the attack. Her statement to employees about the tragedy was "wonderful, strong and moving," said the McCain staffer, who asked Clinton's office to convey the senator's appreciation of the remarks. Ultimately, McCain turned into a fierce critic of Clinton over the attack. And Clinton's handling of Benghazi has been scrutinized and has cast a shadow over her tenure leading the State Department.

What's this all about? It's not completely clear, but apparently the goal of the rogue group, which included a former high level CIA covert operative and a former U.S. General, was, at the very least, to gather and provide sensitive reports to the...

The answer is more complex than it might seem. There's no doubt Clinton withheld information that Congress demanded she turn over, and some Republicans believe the documents she destroyed were covered under a subpoena as well. But a look at the story behind the subpoena and other document requests from congressional Benghazi investigators is a tale...

    The family of Glen Doherty, one of the two Marine SEAL contractors killed in the 2012 Benghazi attack, are taking matters into their own hands and suing the CIA and the State Department for $1 million each, according to The Washington Times. Three other Americans were killed in the attack, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractor and former SEAL Tyrone Woods.

    A former State Department official has told lawmakers that Hillary Clinton allies privately removed politically damaging documents before turning over files to the supposedly independent board investigating the Benghazi terror attack. The account from Raymond Maxwell, former head of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), was first published in The Daily Signal. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, confirmed to FoxNews.com on Monday that Maxwell told him and other lawmakers the same story when they privately interviewed him last year about the attacks and their aftermath. Chaffetz said that Maxwell claimed Clinton’s chief of staff and deputy chief of staff were...

    As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

    In her memoir, "Hard Choices," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton included a chapter on the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012. But she failed to specifically explain why Amb. Chris Stevens was there that day. "U.S. ambassadors are not required to consult or seek approval from Washington, when traveling within their countries, and rarely do," she wrote. "Like all chiefs of mission, Chris made decisions about his movements based on the security assessments of his team on the ground, as well as his own judgment," she said. "After all, no one had...

    The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, has concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, said Rep. Mike Thompson of St. Helena, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee. The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies will have to approve making the report public. Thompson said the report “confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down...

    Classified info at compound required U.S. Marine protection Did the State Department under Hillary Clinton deliberately refuse to classify what has been described as sensitive information housed at the U.S. special mission in Benghazi? The storage of any officially classified information in the compound would have required the deployment of the U.S. Marine Corps Embassy Security Group for protection. Instead, external security at the facility was provided by unarmed local Libyan guards. Armed members of the Martyrs of the February 17th Brigades served as the official quick-reaction force that worked within the compound. The Brigade is an offshoot of the...

    Despite President Obama's promise to stay focused on hunting down those responsible for the 2012 Benghazi attack -- and despite a recent arrest touted as a major takedown -- sources say little has been done to nab the other suspects. According to multiple sources on the ground, including some with direct knowledge of the operations to identify and hunt the Benghazi suspects, intelligence that could have been acted upon at times has been ignored or put on hold. Further, they say, the recent capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala -- now on a ship bound for the U.S., expected to arrive...

    Kenneth Timmerman’s new book, Dark Forces: The Truth about What Happened in Benghazi, focuses on far more than just the events that occurred during the storming of the American consulate in Libya by Islamic jihadists on September 11 2011. According to Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, the book “contextualizes” by taking an historical narrative of the events leading up to the fateful day for America and the aftermath of the crisis, which took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Ty Woods. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot Radio, channel 125,...
