Benghazi Coverup: obama – clinton Officials Who Were Supposed To Have Resigned Over Benghazi Are Still On Payroll

Obama’s Benghazi fall guys turn out not to be fall guys at all; they’re just playing fall guys on TV. “On Payroll After ‘Resignation’, Another ‘Lie in Web of Lies,'” by Rachel Hirshfeld for Israel National News, December 28 (thanks to Voice of the Copts):

The chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee slammed the State Department on Thursday over a report that officials who were said to have resigned over the attacks in Benghazi are still on the payroll.“This is unbelievable, the American people should be outraged at this, because it is pathetic, it is disgraceful, it is purposely misleading, it is a ruse, smoke and mirrors. This is so wrong for the State Department to do,” said Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) on “Fox & Friends” Thursday.

“It’s just one more lie in a web of lies dealing with the terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya,” she added.

Ros-Lehtinen’s remarks came in response to an article published in The New York Post earlier this week that reported that Eric Boswell, an assistant Secretary of State who supposedly resigned, was still working at the department.

According to the report, while Boswell had resigned his post as assistant secretary, he was still maintaining other titles and responsibilities at the State Department.

Ros-Lehtinen expressed concern regarding reports that instead of resigning, officials had been re-located to other posts within the department.

“We have another attempt to purposely misdirect the American public,” she maintained.

“The spokeswoman for the State Department said the secretary has accepted the resignation of Eric Boswell, a high-level security official — she’s accepted his resignation and then she said, and the three other individuals who are mentioned in the ARB [Accountability Review Board report], the Benghazi report, have been relieved of their duties,” Ros-Lehtinen continued.

“It gave everyone the impression that four individuals had resigned as a result of their mismanagement of the terrorist attack on Benghazi when in fact we now find out all of them are still on the payroll.

“They’ve just shifted the deck chairs, they want to make the American people believe that the State Department has held people accountable for their lack of security and sending help to four brave Americans. This is incredibly inept of the State Department to continue to fool the American public,” she added….

Special Operations Speaks: State Department Ineptitude and Coverup of Benghazigate

Dear Fellow Americans:

On Tuesday night, the State Department finally published a report on what their so-called Accountability Review Board has determined happened in Libya, and according to them, two things are certain:

There was massive leadership failure, and not a single person should be held responsible.

You heard that right.

Despite isolating 24 distinct and major recommendations for how the State Department could’ve avoided this travesty, apparently they “did not find reasonable cause to determine that any individual U.S. government employee breached his or her duty.” Really?

End the Benghazi Smoke Screen, Hold Senior Officials Accountable

 

benghazigate-meme.jpgLet’s list just a few of ways that State Department officials did “breach their duty.”

•    First and most outrageously, U.S. officials actually lost the Ambassador for several hours – and only found him because an Arabic-speaking man called the consulate from the Ambassador’s cell phone.

•    There were “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels [leaving Benghazi security] grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.”

•    The security staff was “inexperienced… short-term… and inadequate.”

•    The Consulate in Benghazi “was not a high priority for Washington when it came to security-related requests, especially those relating to staffing.”

•    Despite evidence of growing unrest and increased terrorist threat and the fact it was the anniversary of 9/11, the attacks were “were unanticipated in their scale and intensity.”

•    As we suspected, an unmanned drone was dispatched and at the scene at the time, meaning top officials had visual feed of the attack – leaving no question that they willfully misled the American people by attributing this to a protest.

In what world could anyone consider these points within the bounds of the State Department’s duty to the people of the United States?

Is basic competence not a requirement for being a senior official at the State Department?

Is ignoring a growing and present terrorist threat something that gets a “meets expectations” on their yearly reviews?

Is intentionally lying to the very public that they are supposed to serve all in a day’s work for Hillary Clinton and her top-tier cronies?

The State Department can pretend that this “independent board” has cleared them of malfeasance, but no reasonable person could call this massive incompetence even remotely acceptable.

We’re glad that after months of putting serious pressure on the Obama Administration we’re finally starting to see some answers – answers that confirm many of our suspicions, and allude to the confirmation of others.

That said, this report is the bureaucratic version of a curved test grade; by their assessment, because the entire system failed, no one is individually responsible.

It’s time for the obfuscation and the smoke screens to end. We have to keep up the pressure so that whoever caused this internal breakdown is held accountable.

We can’t accept the insider political protectionism that Hillary Clinton is pushing. She “accepts their recommendations” but clearly has no intentions of removing those officials who caused her department’s systemic failure – or of accepting any culpability for it herself.

We must demand that these utterly incompetent senior officials be identified and punished to the highest possible extent.

Our men and women abroad are losing their lives because of the Obama Administration’s leadership failure. Their families, their fellow armed forces, and the American people deserve real answers, and real changes in this Administration.

And we won’t stop until they get it.

Sincerely,
