I’m sure you have heard reports of a detailed classified cable being sent to our State Department in Washington in August from the U.S. mission in Benghazi, a cable which highlighted Islamist militias and terrorist groups in Benghazi and articulated the U.S. mission’s inability to withstand a coordinated attack. The cable also detailed that the Libyan militia that was supposed to help protect Americans had been infiltrated by those who seek to destroy us.
I, like many others, have some unanswered questions.
If the cable went directly to the office of the Secretary of State, how is it possible that Hillary Clinton was unaware of heightened security risks and a potentially imminent terrorist attack?
If Hillary did receive the cable, why wasn’t security immediately and significantly increased?
If Hillary received the cable, how were its contents not received by President Obama as well? Is there a serious disconnect between our State Department and Commander-in-chief?
How could Hillary Clinton and/or Barack Obama see the cable detailed in the aforementioned clip and leap to blame a YouTube video for days on end following the attack?
If President Obama was aware of the cable, why the inaction? Why no order for military support for our men on the ground in Benghazi? If our Commander-in-chief wasn’t aware of the cable or the unfolding situation, why the heck not? Reminder: “Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers.”
Barack Obama is the Commander-in-chief, is he not? Where was his engagement? Where was his leadership? Where is his leadership?
Americans deserve answers.
