I’ve got some, frankly, shocking news for you today. I want you to prepare yourself. Are you sitting down? Good. It’s looking like Hillary and the Obama Administration may have lied to the American people! I know, I know. Who could have seen that coming? You know, besides everybody not clinging for dear life to Hillary’s pant suit leg.
A scorching email showing the Pentagon offering assistance to rescue the remaining Americans during the 8 hour siege on the American consulate in Benghazi is making its way through the media this week. Well, it’ s making its way a little more dismissively through MSNBC.
The email clearly illustrates a willing military response waiting only for a State Department signoff that never came. Millennials and social justice jihadists notwithstanding, everybody should recall that recall that a certain incompetent Democratic presidential candidate was in charge of the State Department way back then.
Well, this is awkward.
I guess Hillary was a little too busy working out how to spin how a YouTube video and not terrorists actually murdered four Americans and impugned our country’s sovereignty. “We are spinning them up as we speak”. There’s really no spin necessary or possible.
The DoD attempted to contact somebody, anybody at State but apparently Hillary (The “S” in the email presumably refers to her as the Secretary) is really strict about no interruptions during meetings. At the very least, this contradicts the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta’s, 2013 testimony to Congress insisting that there was no time to get military assets to Libya.
Presuming Hillary was smart enough to not put an out and out refusal of help on paper, she was also smart enough to just pocket veto the offer with a wink knowing that attacking the actual terrorists would undercut the narrative that this was all somehow conservative America’s fault.
The email was obtained by Judicial Watch, which went on to report that this evidence was actually known to exist as early as a month after the tragedy. If so, that adds further credence to the accusations that Obama and Clinton- along with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta- were committed to a long-term deception of the American people more than keeping their promise to protect them.
According to Judicial Watch President, Tom Fitton, “The email makes readily apparent that the military was prepared to launch immediate assistance that could have made a difference, at least at the CIA Annex. The fact that the Obama Administration withheld this email for so long only worsens the scandal of Benghazi.”
Somebody might want to check with Uncle Bernie if the American people are sick of hearing about Hillary’s emails now?
