What Was Hillary Clinton’s Involvement In Benghazi?
Today is just a couple weeks since the Anniversary of Benghazi. Over a year later and people still want to know why. We remember that day Susan Rice, who is back in the administration under a different position came out and lied to the American people as well as President Barack Obama. We know it wasn’t over a youtube.com video. Then we remember the fateful statement by Hilary Clinton of “What difference does it make!” screamed at the Senate Hearing committee. Still a year, and we are questioning what was Hillary Clinton’s involvement in Benghazi?
This was brought back up to the forefront of the media today when the Cable News Network (CNN) wanted to change its name to the “Clinton News Network” to show support for Hillary in 2016. NBC and ABC have voted for now to keep their “Hillary Clinton” min-series off the air due to protests by the American public for showing favoritism. This has had a rather peculiar effect in the media other then the mainstream news sources. The Senate review committee came out and said their investigation was concluding, but we still haven’t heard the witnesses that are being forced to change their name. It seems that the mainstream media is touting victory for Hillary and declaring her the forerunner, all the while more and more evidence that leads to her and President Obama involved in a deadly game of espionage.
Some of our readers may be unfamiliar with the “Iran Contra” scandal of the 1980’s. One of our readers and supporters admitted that George Herman Bush Sr. was running for president when she was in the Fourth Grade. While it shows the author’s age a bit, I remember this when I was in Jr. High. When Col. Oliver North came on Fox News as a contributor, a lot of staunch Old Guard cringed at seeing his name back on the television. What had disgraced this gentleman and was called the biggest scandal against then President Ronald Reagan was a botched gun running operation by the CIA to the Contra rebels in Iran. For most people that don’t know, this is where the Taliban and Iraq were getting their weapons to fight the Ayatollah in Iran and Russia in Afghanistan that nearly ignited the “Cold War” into a powder keg as Afghanistan was Russia’s Vietnam. Yes, we patriots are still ashamed that the same fathers of Al Queda that we have been fighting are the same Contras that became the Iraqi Guard and all the spin offs and off shoots we have been fighting since the 1991 Operation Enduring Freedom.
I will never forget in my young impressionable mind that I was watching a man I admired as a war hero torn to shreds by the Senate Judicial Committee. I will never forget Oliver North testifying that he had installed a multi-million dollar security system for protection for his family from a man named “Ossama Bin Laden” . I will never forget my parents screaming that people wanted to Impeach Ronald Reagan over this because of all the good that he had done for this country, this is no different then the “Bay of Pigs” that they remembered. I can’t help but wonder if we are not seeing an Iran Contra scandal unravel before our eyes of this very generation and because of a concussion we are taking the star player today and making her a hero?
While there are several things we don’t know that happened in Benghazi there are several things that we do know, and almost all of the dots come back to one of two places, Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack H. Obama.
For one, we do know that there is credible evidence that this was an attempt to steal anti aircraft missiles. Although Pickering testified that “they didn’t get into the secure part of the annex” one must wonder, when the report of 400 Anti-Aircraft Missiles being stolen(NBC News) came out, why were they even at a CIA safe house where Ambassador Stevens was meeting with a Turkish Diplomat that was known for smuggling arms into Syria? Why was he even there? Where were the missing CIA operatives supposed to be guarding Stevens?
This led to another direct question by the Senate Hearing Committee. You see, informants had stated that this was a botched kidnapping attempt by the Obama Administration to get him re-elected by looking like a hero to the nation like Ronald Reagan did when he rescued the victims of the coup in Iran, but something went horribly wrong. They not only told this to news sources but also to key politicians. Therefore It should have been no surprise that this would be asked in a hearing. What was Pickering’s answers, “I can’t answer that, I can’t answer that, I can’t answer that” indicating that the information had been classified above the Senate Hearing’s pay grade. Watch the exchange here:
Why was it classified? Why when he recanted his statement he left the botched attempt as possible if it was not true? Further why did he in MSNBC and Fox news interview say that all information was forwarded to Hillary Clinton and from her to the President and no one else? What was in that information?
Another report from WMD puts a light on another aspect of the operation:
Earlier this month, WND reported Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. stated in interview with Fox News that murdered U.S Ambassador Christopher Stevens was in Benghazi to keep weapons caches from falling into the hands of terrorists. Until that point, no official explanation for Stevens deployment to Libya has acknowledged any such activity.
Meanwhile, the New York Times reporting on how the plan for arming the rebels was put into action has prompted major questions about the role Clinton played in the U.S. response to the Benghazi attacks, assaults against the very facilities where the arms-to-rebels scheme was allegedly being coordinated.
National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor confirmed to Fox News in November that Clinton herself worked on the immediate U.S. response to Benghazi.
“The most senior people in government worked on this issue from the minute it happened,” he said.
“That includes the secretary of defense, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, secretary of state, national security adviser, et cetera. Additionally, the Deputies Committee – the second in command at the relevant national security agencies – met at least once and more often twice a day to manage the issue.”
One of the key decisions by Clinton’s State Department that has perplexed many security experts was the determination not to deploy an interagency rapid response unit designed to respond to terrorist attacks known as a Foreign Emergency Support Team, or FEST.
FEST teams previously deployed immediately after al-Qaida bombings of U.S. embassies in East Africa in 1998 and the USS Cole in 2000. But they were not used for Benghazi, confounding insiders speaking to the news media
Counterterrorism officials told Fox News in November that the FEST teams could have helped the FBI gain access to the site in Benghazi faster. It ultimately took the FBI 24 days.
With this directly implicating Hillary Clinton is the media not reporting this?
Then we have the reported hundreds of e-mails to the Secretary of State requesting help. We know we have every excuse under the sun. Representative Trey Gowdy (R SC) read several at the hearing which prompted the famous “What Difference Does It Make” outburst under the pressure of being cross examined by Senator Johnson Ron Johnson (R WI).
This was January of 2013. Later Mrs. Hillary Clinton now retired from the State Department had a concussion and was excused from concluding her testimony. Meanwhile, we have found out that the State Department ignoring pleas for help in this scandal that one of the CIA agents reached out on an online game begging for his “guild” to contact the state department on his behalf. Why would no one answer their pleas to Ms. Clinton.? Is her concussion life threatening? Has she not recovered?
Finally we live in a day and age of whistle blowers. If we don’t know what happened why did a whistle blower say this:
“I began to wonder ‘why won’t they tell her anything?’” He asked. “Then a contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking NATO official, mentioned to me that he had reports that the ambassador [J. Christopher Stevens] had been complaining about the dispatches and cables that he had got from the State Department about the weapons being received and [Islamic] radicals armed, including Stinger missiles.”
According to Plumlee, Steven was ordered to stand down after he asked the State Department what he should do about the American arm shipments to al-Qaeda.
“The ambassador and his people had written a series of field reports and cable dispatches advising our State Department that the rebel factions had been armed with U.S. weapons,” he said. “Now my contention is this: if that is the case, why is that classified as a national security matter?”-red flag news 9/25/13
We know that Ambassador Stevens wrote those cabals. We know that they were sent to Hillary Clinton. We know she said as much in the Senate hearings. We know that several Senators including Senator Gowdy questioned her on it. We know that a Benghazi investigator has came forward today and said he wouldn’t deny the possible kidnapping and any information on it is classified. We know even the Washington Post, the New York Times, and several other news papers have wrote on this and that this evidence of foul play exists.
Now looking back a year later, we know that she played an important role in the lying and cover up. We know that either her or the President in a scale of espionage that one would dream to write as fiction that is shockingly fact. Why haven’t the mainstream media outlets start to scream for answers to the high heavens like they did in 1974 with Nixon and 1980’s with Iran Contra? Why, when there is more evidence against her then Col. Oliver North, is she not on trial like he was? Why are we even worried about Hillary for President 2016 and not Hillary for Prison 2016?
I think after a year, more evidence then it took to convict Charles Manson, and more questions then answers, We the People deserve the truth.
