Who would have thought an event from 2012 would come back to haunt former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? I guess considering it involved the deaths of four high ranking U.S. officials and servicemen, it really wouldn’t go away.
We’ve known for a long time that Hillary Clinton had the power to intervene during the September 11, 2012 attacks on Benghazi. For whatever reason, she held back multiple forces from rescuing our people, who ultimately died at the hands of an uprising.
Officials within our government have been investigating the issue for years. Hillay has tried to divert attention away from it. First she made excuses for the attack, then was on record for say “What does it matter?” after those men died.
Thanks to Wikileaks, we are learning more about what intel she had at the time. It’s clear she knew far in advanced the dangers in Benghazi, but still did nothing.
According to recent documents, the House Select Committee on Benghazi discussed the many notifications Clinton had leading up to the attack on the American embassy. Despite this overwhelming information, she did not order our people withdraw or send extra security:
*There are several instances of State personnel notifying the Secretary about security concerns and issues:* ·
April 10, 2011 – Forwarded email about deteriorating security ·
April 22, 2011 – Request for continuous coverage in Benghazi, “security permitting” ·
April 24, 2011 – Forwarded email about hotels being targeted ·
June 10, 2011 – Email including information about credible threat info against hotel and that personnel are evacuating to alternate locations ·
August 21, 2011 – Email regarding concerns about Islamist militias ·
January 9, 2012 – Email stating that disarming and reintegrating of militias isn’t going as well as they had hoped ·
February 24, 2012 – Email stating that militia rivalries are dangerous ·
August 24, 2012 – Email stating that there are “some warning signs”
The full document is available on WikiLeaks. All politics aside, this is a shocking indictment on the leadership of Hillary Clinton. When given real responsibility, she makes the wrong choice.
Last time it cost us four American lives. How much will it cost the next time?
