More on Benghazi
If you were interested, you watched the U.S. Senate question the secretary of defense, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs and earlier, the secretary of state on the attack of our consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
The questioning of Hillary Clinton by the Democratic members was almost completely praise of her good works as secretary of state. They forgot their questions. The Republicans actually did the job. Questions of the two gentlemen were somewhat more professional.
After knowing for months before the Benghazi consulate attack that it was ill-defended and with Ambassador Stevens pleading with the State Department to provide security and being refused, nothing happened.
Yes, Clinton said she took full responsibility. What does that mean to the families of four dead Americans? How about future State Department employees that might find themselves in a similar place?
The one question that no one asked was: Why was the consulate not closed down? Yes, Clinton said she demanded that the host government provide security, which is diplomatic protocol. Great, but when that government can’t or won’t provide security, why wasn’t that facility evacuated like the Brits did or the Red Cross did?
Are Americans considered expendable by the Obama administration? Was it because that would look bad for the Obama foreign policy?
Those four Americans didn’t have to die. And the Democrats think Clinton is so wonderful. Do you want her for president?
