Newly Uncovered Benghazi Email Could Make a Difference
A newly uncovered email from Jeremy Bash, former Defense Dept. Chief of Staff, is calling into question claims that no help was available to the victims of the Benghazi 9/11/12 terrorist attack. Special Forces in Croatia were apparently available and, according to reporting by Sharyl Attkisson, may have even been called back once underway to Libya.
Well, Madame Clinton, perhaps you can explain to the voters in New Hampshire and Iowa, as well as to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, why these forces were pulled back. And while you are at it, explain the truth to all of us Americans. Finally. Yet what’s the rush, Madame? You have had no interest in coming clean up to this point.
Sharyl Attkisson’s videos on Benghazi are clear and forthright. America should be outraged at the loss of lives and property in Benghazi. To compound this dereliction, key email evidence has been kept from the American people for three years, while candidate Clinton scoffed, “What difference does it make?”
What difference does it make? The American people deserve an explanation, and maybe, Madame, you can commence your explanation tour with former CIA Station Chief Gary Berntsen. No one knows the turf better than Gary.
Gary Berntsen (author of Jawbreaker: The Attack on Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda: A Personal Account by the CIA’s Key Field Commander) was the CIA’s key commander coordinating the fight against the Taliban forces around Kabul. Former CIA bin Laden unit chief Michael Scheuer calls Berntsen courageous. Cofer Black, former chief of the CIA’s Counter Terrorism Center, writes that “Berntsen was the CIA’s ‘go to guy’ when it came to leading in Afghanistan, owing to his exceptional operational and leadership skills in situations involving the threat of immediate danger. Berntsen is brave and bold and a true American hero.”
Berntsen will know before you have finished your first sorry sentence that the tune you are singing is in the wrong key. In Berntsen’s mind, you could instantly be exposed as a deceitful fraud. Your explanation of events in Benghazi hasn’t been believable from the start. As Berntsen said of the Predator hovering above during the Benghazi attacks, “They stood and they watched and our people died.” Telling the families of dead Americans that they were murdered because of a video, and then brazenly asking Congress “what difference does it make,” has proven your inability or your unwillingness to accept your own mistakes. (And your desire to get into the White House at all costs.) Voters in New Hampshire and Iowa would be stunned to see you questioned by a national hero and terrorism expert like Gary. Not to mention what great campaign fodder Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders could generate from your deceitful responses.
Your presidential-aspirations-goose might just be cooked right then and there. Your campaign has been taking on so much water you must already know that the tide is running out on elite/establishment politicians like you, your husband, Barack Obama, and George W. Bush. Al Kooper, legendary Hammond B3 player and founder of Blood Sweat and Tears, penned a catchy song—“Brand New Day.” It’s time, only not your time! It’s time for Americans to know the truth. As Hugh Hewitt, trying to make sense of it all, said on CNN: “Hillary just makes stuff up, Hillary is a liar … We just can’t take eight more years of lies.”
