Americans are tired of the lies. They would like some answers as to what happened in Benghazi and why four Americans died.
Hopefully, the U.S. House Select Committee on Benghazi will provide the truth. What lies beneath Benghazi is a failed foreign policy of epic portions, resulting in the deaths of four Americans.
This investigation will be about President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Besides the lie about the video causing the attack, the American people were led to believe Benghazi was a consulate. It was never a consulate. It was a special mission compound. The president and secretary of state designate them.
What was the mission of the SMC? This is a question the administration does not want to answer.
Clinton’s Benghazi Accountability Review Board found no one liable and somehow failed to interview Clinton, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, survivors or the president.
Why was no real security provided to the Benghazi residence, an SMC? The United States did not notify the Libyan government we were there (ARB, pages 14-15). It is hard to establish a zero-footprint presence if there are security forces everywhere. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was essentially working out of a house with the CIA annex one mile away.
What was the CIA doing there? It was collecting arms left over from disposing of Kahdafi. Where were these arms headed?
Apparently, under the auspices of Saudi Arabia, they were going to anti-Assad forces (Syria) through Turkey. Who are the anti-Assad forces? These are al-Qaida-type forces supported also by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Who supports Syrian President Bashar Assad? Russia. Thus, we were supplying arms to forces fighting against Syria, which Russia supports. Our military is fighting against the same al-Qaida in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Clinton was asked about this arms movement during the congressional hearing. Her reply was “ask another agency;” she knew. Her ambassador (Stevens) was running the operation. The forces that attacked the embassy were quickly identified as “ansar al Sharia” terrorists. They are backed by Iran.
Significantly, there are congressional people who know the truth about the international “fast and furious” gun running.
President Nixon resigned over the Watergate break-in, which was a search for documents. President Clinton was impeached for lying to a federal judge.
Get the direction?
President Obama and Hillary Clinton have lied to America and perhaps, had us in a “proxy” war with Russia.
