More and more keeps coming out
about the Obama Administration’s willful negligence in defending our ambassador
and staff in Libya.
The latest is that, in August, the
Obama Administration withdrew a 16 member Special Ops team from Libya assigned
to protecting the ambassador and embassy staff in spite of Ambassador Stevens’
pleas about security and desire that the Special Ops team stay.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens
wanted a Security Support Team, made up of 16 special operations soldiers, to
stay with him in Libya after their deployment was scheduled to end in August,
the commander of that security team told ABC News.
The embassy staff’s “first choice was
for us to stay,” Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, 55, told ABC News in an interview. “That
would have been the choice of the embassy people in Tripoli.” …
Asked for comment to the memo and
Wood’s comments, a spokesman for the House Oversight Committee told ABC News:
“Diplomats working in Libya viewed security provided by highly trained
Americans as critical to their safety and mission. The Oversight Committee’s
investigation continues to seek answers about why — even as threats against
Americans increased — senior State Department officials erroneously decided
such security was no longer needed.”
Investigators are exploring whether
anyone at the State Department told the Embassy specifically not to request
Again, this is part of a willful
negligence in defending our people in Libya. This is beyond scandalous and should be the last straw in
bringing down Obama, and Hillary as well. . . . Note that I said "should".
