Last week, Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours before a congressional committee about the attack on our diplomatic compound and a CIA base in Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed during the terrorist attack on the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11th. They were killed by Islamic terrorists while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State.
T.V. news is alive with opinions about the testimony, Democrats in support and Republicans ripping into her statements. Listening to her statements does bring up some disturbing facts so I did some research and fact-checking
It is simply unthinkable that the personnel in Libya made approximately 600 requests for security improvements in Benghazi, and all of them were ignored. It is even more unbelievable that Hillary Clinton never even heard of the requests considering that Ambassador Stevens was one of her good friends. This was never even brought up to her during any security meetings? I guess nobody noticed the requests and nobody cared.
The independent Accountability Review Board convened after the attack “deeply faulted” State Department officials in Washington for poor communication and cooperation as diplomats in Libya pressed for more security and Benghazi grew more dangerous.” They referenced a “lack of transparency, responsiveness, and leadership at senior bureau levels.” Yet nobody was responsible and nobody was even reprimanded.
Does this seem like someone we would want to be in charge?
The use of a non-secure computer system is also unaccusable unless you want to avoid Freedom of Information requests. She stated that she didn’t use e-mail during the day, yet the AP fact check concluded, “Clinton sent about one-third of her emails during working hours – on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. – according to an AP analysis of 2,754 emails she wrote from April 2009 through September 2010, this was based on their time stamps.
Worse was the lies told to the families of those who lost their lives. A diary entry from a Benghazi victim’s dad, wrote what she personally told him at that transfer of remains ceremony on Sept. 14: “I gave Hillary a hug and shook her hand. And she said we are going to have the film maker arrested who was responsible for the death of my son.”
Hillary now testifies before a congressional committee that she never blamed the anti-Islamic video for the Benghazi killing of four courageous Americans. Who should we believe a dad or the one responsible?
Her history of lies, deceit, and deception that goes back to at least 1974., Hillary worked on the legal team under Jerry Zeifman, a Democrat who served as counsel and chief of staff for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation. He stated the character of the then 27-year-old attorney “she was a liar, unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” Do we want someone like this as the leader of the free of our country?
