House Republicans will release their final report on the Benghazi attacks Tuesday morning. The report concludes what we already knew. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton DID NOTHING to save US lives in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. They spent precious time instead during the attack concocting a lie they would tell the American public about the terrorist attack.
The left the Americans to die in Benghazi.
The Washington Examiner reported:
“Despite its claims, we saw no evidence that the administration held a sincere interest in helping the committee find the truth about Benghazi. There is a time for politics and a time to set politics aside. A national tragedy is one of those times when as a nation we should join together to find the truth. That did not happen here,” said the 51-page supplemental report.
Jordan is a top House conservative leader and Pompeo is a West Point and Harvard University Law School grad.
“What we did find was a tragic failure of leadership—in the run up to the attack and the night of—and an administration that, so blinded by politics and its desire to win an election, disregarded a basic duty of government: Tell the people the truth. And for those reasons Benghazi is, and always will be, an American tragedy,” it concluded.
It strongly pushed back on administration claims that Clinton and her team did everything to help those under attack at the U.S. embassy and CIA facility on September 11, 2012, just weeks before the presidential election.
“Those in Washington decided that once the initial attack at the State compound had ended and our men moved to the Annex, the enemy had retreated as well. For those fighting for their lives in Benghazi that night, however, it was one long battle for survival. But the terrorists did not retreat. This view from Washington that the fight had ended is a lapse in judgment that may well haunt our nation for years to come. At the same time Secretary Clinton appears to have concluded that the attack was over, the men on the ground knew better. In the end, two men died from smoke inhalation at the State Department’s compound during an initial attack involving dozens of extremists. Two more died from mortar fire at the end of a continuous, hours-long siege by approximately a hundred heavily armed and highly trained fighters at the CIA Annex,” said the report.
It provides a timeline of the crisis, and counters Democratic claims that there was nothing the military could have done to save those who were killed.
“We are now convinced, contrary to the administration’s public claim that the military did not have time to get to Benghazi, that the administration never launched men or machines to help directly in the fight. That is very different from what we have been told to date. And the evidence is compelling,” said the Pompeo-Jordan report.
Maybe worse, said the report, was Clinton’s State Department being obsessed with issues other than saving its diplomats.
