They attributed the attack on the Benghazi Consulate to a spontaneous response
by a group of people outside the gate who were peacefully protesting a YouTube
video critical of the Prophet Mohammed published almost six months before.
This was a bold-faced lie that they continued to perpetuate days
after the facts were known.
An overhead drone was streaming real-time video into the "Situation Room”
within one hour after the attack, that clearly showed it to be a planned assault
by well trained, heavily armed terrorists. President Obama, Secretary of State
Clinton, Defense Secretary Panetta, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs,
General Martin Dempsey coldly watched this slaughter unfolding before them
and just sat on their hands. Even worse, they would not allow anyone to come
to their defense, despite the fact that F-16 fighter jets could have been over
the Consulate within three hours. Even if unarmed, their show of force
might have been enough to slow the attackers down, and give follow-on fighters
time to arm and get there for a full blown close air support mission; which
may well have saved the lives of Doherty and Woods--if not Ambassador
Stevens and Foreign Officer Smith.
The Commander of the African Command was ready to send a fighting force
into the fray, and another rescue team in Tripoli was standing by. All were
ordered to "stand down" by President Obama. Even if he himself did not give
the order, he, as Commander-in-Chief, is the only one who could
have approved it.
When asked by a TV anchor why a rescue effort was not made, our stalwart
Secretary of Defense had the audacity--or was it just naivete--to say that
"We don't send troops into harms way until we know the situation"--not
an exact quote. Really? When our troops stormed the beaches of Normandy,
Iwo Jima, Tarawa, Inchon, etc., did they, or their commanders know exactly
what they were getting into? Our military is trained to do exactly that, go
into harms way to defend our national interests. Indeed, it only exists for that
These four "leaders of our nation," Obama, Clinton, Panetta, and Dempsey
swore an oath to defend and protect our country from all enemies, and to
insure that the people we send out into this world to do that our adequately
staffed and protected; our military adequately trained and equipped. They
obviously failed in that duty. Was it just incompetence, or something more?
In any case, for what they did, or failed to do in Benghazi, every
one of them should have been impeached, court martialed,
and/or tried for treason.
If not for the Electoral College Hilliary Clinton would have finished the job
of bringing this country to its knees; one that Barak Hussein Obama was
recruited to do and almost achieved. It was only because of the electoral
college that honest, hard working Americans were able to put in the
office of the presidency the only man in the 17 person field of Republican
candidates who was not only a non-politician, but had the personal
strength and determination to take on a neutered Washington establishment
Yes, he can be, and often is, crude and insensitive, with an ego the size
of the Washington Monument, but I believe he is a true patriot who
loves his country. We the people saw this clearly. We also see, that he is
getting things done in a grid-locked Washington, and has indeed stopped
our downward spiral; while the embittered Democrats are still unable to
accept the fact that Donald Trump won the election and their anointed
We owe a debt of gratitude to our founding fathers who, in their infinite
wisdom, created the Electoral College. They knew even then, that it would
be needed to give all Americans a voice in the selection of their President.
The Electoral College is essential to the preservation of our Democracy and
must stand forever. AB-186 must be struct down.
