An Air Force whistleblower who was stationed in Italy during the 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate in Libya told Fox News this week that his squadron could have potentially prevented the deaths of the four Americans who died that day.
“I definitely believe that our aircraft could have taken off and got there in a timely manner, maybe three hours at the most, in order to basically at least stop that second mortar attack and have those guys running for the hills,” he said on the condition of anonymity, according to the Washington Examiner.
“As far as I’m concerned, we’re the world’s greatest air force,” he continued. “When we need something done and we need to save some American lives, we’re gonna get it done. They just kept telling me, ‘We’re waiting on a call, we’re waiting on the call.’”
But that call never came, which meant that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s claim that both she and the Obama administration did everything in their power to try to help the victims in Benghazi was a blatant lie.
Alas, because of fears of potential retribution by the administration, the anonymous whistleblower refused to speak with Rep. Trey Gowdy, who chairs the House Select Committee on Benghazi. This angered Gowdy, though his anger was not directed at the whistleblower.
“As a former federal prosecutor, I find it deeply troubling there are individuals who would like to share their stories, but have not because they are afraid of retaliation from their superiors,” he reportedly said. “No one should be afraid of talking to their elected representatives in Congress.”
Like the whistleblower himself noted, however, “There are so many ways you can get screwed over” for cooperating with lawmakers — particularly so in the day and age of President Barack Hussein Obama.
Still, though, it would be nice if he went ahead and took the risk regardless, as the four Americans who died needlessly during the Benghazi attack, and their families, deserve for the truth to be exposed.
