The House Select Committee on Benghazi released its highly anticipated report Tuesday, which took roughly two years to compose and offered a comprehensive look into the events that ultimately claimed the lives of four Americans. The report details not only the numerous calls for extra security, which went unheeded, but also the paralyzing effects the administration had on a military response, which was bogged down to the point where military action was impossible.
“Despite President Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s clear orders to deploy military assets, nothing was sent to Benghazi, and nothing was en route to Libya at the time the last two Americans were killed almost 8 hours after the attacks began,” read one part of the report.
These findings were succinctly summarized by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who chaired the committee.
“I’m not going to make a reckless allegation that Ty Woods and Glen Doherty’s lives could have been saved,” said Gowdy. “What I am going to tell you is if the mortar (attack) had happened at 7:15, or 9:15, or 11:15, the result would have been the same. Nothing was ever coming to Benghazi.”
