This story is from December of last year, but it is an excellent reminder that we should always remember Benghazi and what could have been if Obama and Clinton had done their jobs. But they didn’t and four men died needlessly because of it. The military was more than willing and ready to do their duty, but they were held back far too long. Remember the infamous call at 3 am? Well, no one answered at all.
Hillary Clinton led the State Department at that time and along with Obama, the blame and infamy for all of this lies with her. For that one inaction alone, she should never ever be Commander in Chief of the military. If she is elected president, that is what she will be. God help us.
From Allen West:
The ugly truth about Benghazi continues to trickle out. Like this critical email that shows the Pentagon urgently offering help to the unfolding attack in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. And although it came after the first wave of the attack at the consulate, it occurred before a mortar strike on the CIA annex killed Ty Woods and Glenn Doherty.
As Judicial Watch notes, the email ‘leaves no doubt military assets were offered and ready to go, and awaiting State Department signoff, which did not come.”
In other words, the Pentagon was offering military assets that potentially could have saved the lives of American citizens — if only the State Department had signed off.
The email below was obtained by Judicial Watch. It shows that the Pentagon demanded, begged and pleaded with Hillary Clinton to allow them to send help to Benghazi as it was going down. That’s not what Clinton and Panetta said… they claimed no forces were available and within reach to provide help to the compound that was under siege. They lied.
From Fox News:
As the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was unfolding, a high-ranking Pentagon official urgently messaged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top deputies to offer military help, according to an email obtained by Judicial Watch.
The revelation appears to contradict testimony Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave lawmakers in 2013, when he said there was no time to get forces to the scene in Libya, where four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
“I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton],” reads the email, from Panetta’s chief of staff Jeremy Bash. “After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.”
Instead of spinning up our forces to help our boys, Clinton spun a story full of lies instead. There is absolutely no doubt there were military forces waiting and ready to go, but they were stopped by Clinton. She lied and they died.
This info has all been available since one month after the event. “The Obama administration and Clinton officials hid this compelling Benghazi email for years,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The email makes readily apparent that the military was prepared to launch immediate assistance that could have made a difference, at least at the CIA Annex. The fact that the Obama Administration withheld this email for so long only worsens the scandal of Benghazi.”
The left can claim all they want that Trump is not qualified to lead… the truth is that Clinton is the one not qualified to clean a toilet. Hillary has the blood of those four men on her hands forever. Just think what she would do for us as a nation.
