On September 11th of 2012, our U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and his people were left alone, without any protection or security from their country, from mad men who attacked them! To not have given them extra ramped up protection on that date, is inconceivable, especially since they asked for enhanced security, repeatedly! Someone needs to be held accountable. For seven hours, the White House and State Department refused to send anyone to their aid, in spite of their pleas for help. I may not agree with Lindsey Graham on everything, but I am very proud of him, for not letting this go, and for being unrelenting in asking for the name's of the Benghazi survivor's so that they can question them. The FBI has them, along with their statements, but so far, have refused to give them up to our Congress - go figure!
This Wednesday, May 8th, there are three brave career state department official 'whistle blowers' Eric Nordstrom, a Diplomatic Security Officer in Libya, Gregory Hicks, U.S. Deputy Chief of Missions in Libya, and Mark Thompson, former marine and now Deputy Coordinator for operations in the agencies counter terrorism bureau, who will be testifying before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee which is chaired by representative Darrell Issa, a republican from California, regarding many of the unanswered questions we've all had.
The leader of our state department at the time, Secretary Clinton, said that she never even heard about the requests for more security. However, since then, it has been proven that her email address was also on the list that received them. What is up with that? Four Americans are dead and their families need to know why, along with the rest of America. Our government let our people down, which ended in their deaths.
How can it be that those who attacked our consulate are still free, and even more importantly, the mastermind of the Benghazi terrorist attack is still being spotted and 'living large' in Libya, even though the President and Hillary insist that everything is being done to get to the bottom of it and see justice done! Only with collusion...at many high levels in this present 'regime' could this be happening. Collusion that included our President and his Vice, people in high ranking military positions, Hillary Clinton and others in the State Department, along with the boot licking media that faithfully kept the full story of this tragedy from the American public throughout the last weeks leading up to the 2012 election...and may I add, are still complicit in an ongoing cover-up.
When Hillary Clinton testified concerning this tragic attack on our consulate in Libya, she answered a question that really, no one was pressing her for at that time. She basically created a 'new' question for herself to answer in an attempt to get them off the line of questioning she was receiving and didn't want to answer! She poses to them a different question: "Who cares who or why those who attacked them, attacked them? "What difference, at this point, does it make?" I believe what they were trying to get her to answer was, "What did you know, and when did you know it?" Nevertheless, the question she threw out there, through them off track, and the answer that she gave to it left many of us speechless? Did the Secretary of our State Department just do that, and then actually say that? I can't believe it! Many of us, truly, had to pick ours jaws up, off the floor!
Just recently, President Obama's press secretary, Jay Carney thought that just stating, hey guys..."it happened a long time ago" was going to make the few brave journalists who have been willing to ask the pertinent questions, just pack them up and go away! "Yah, you're right Jay, what were they thinking?" Can you imagine? It's obvious that poor Jay is truly 'scraping the bottom of the barrel' for replies to questions on Benghazi. I'm not sure how, but I think that I'm starting to feel sorry for him, working for this President.
We can all expect the left wing media to stay true to form, and use all the same 'weapons of mass destruction' that they generally use to destroy 'their enemies'...this time, namely, Eric, Greg and Mark, after they testify this Wednesday. Lindsey Graham stated that we should all expect to have a clearer picture of just how fragile and unsafe our State Dept. had aloud our American Consulate to become, leading up to the attack.
One would almost have to believe that they 'wanted it that way.' Yes, that statement is somewhat provocative, but ImJusSayin one can't help but wonder.
