I know I’ve mentioned the Benghazi, Libya attack and the aftermath already today, but this is huge. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa has revealed in a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that our consulate in Benghazi repeatedly asked for increased security but that those requests were declined by Washington.
“Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. It was clearly never, as Administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest,” the committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and subcommittee chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, write. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.”
I think this brings down Hillary Clinton. Her political career is over.
But will this bring down Barack Hussein Obama? We shall see. I know enough by now not to underestimate the Mainstream News Media’s commitment to suppressing the truth in service of their Dear Leader. But this revelation (and it hopefully becoming a campaign issue) may force their hand.
