Congressional investigative committees continue to perform an invaluable service against administrations that wish to hide and suppress knowledge of their insidious acts of failure of the defense of the United States and its citizens.
And Liberal media continue to carry the flag for Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton, actively downplaying even the failures that left an American ambassador murdered and dragged through the streets of Libya.
New testimony about Obama and Clinton’s failure just came out, and it is damning:
According to CBS News, Hicks claims that a team of special forces was ready to fly from Tripoli to the besieged consulate in Benghazi, but was prevented from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command South Africa (SOCAFRICA). In the end, Stevens and three other Americans were killed when militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades, mortars, and AK-47 rifles stormed the compound.
In addition, Fox News, citing unnamed sources, says Mark I. Thompson, deputy coordinator for operations in the State Department’s counterterrorism bureau, will testify that he was intimidated by officials not to share his account of events…<source>
So not only did the Obama administration ignore intelligence reports prior to the Benghazi massacre, and not only did Obama mouth piece Susan Rice blatantly lie about the nature of the attacks in real time (saying they were spontaneous riots when they were in fact a planned and coordinated assault by terrorists), but now we find out that the Obama administration actively suppressed a rescue team from arriving and intervening.
White House officials have claimed that no military backup could have arrived in time. Furthermore, the administration has “insisted that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were utilized,” says CBS News.
There is much hand-wringing on the left about the media’s failure to challenge assumptions about Saddam Hussein’s WMD, but one wonders whether there will be a similar self-critique on how hard Liberals in the media covered up Benghazi for mr. Obama as he lied his way to re-election.
