Latest Benghazi Consulate Items
The recent reports by the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Armed Services Committee make clear that no organization in the chain of command, including the White House, should have been surprised by the tragic events that occurred at our Benghazi Special Mission Compound (SMC) on Sept. 11, 2012.
In the world of philosophy, there are two prime schools of thought about action and consequence.
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.
A senior White House national security aide who was critical of the Obama administration's "whitewash" of the attack on the Benghazi consulate has been fired for writing anti-administration messages under the pseudonym @natsecwonk on Twitter.
President Obama learned nothing from the war failures of President George W. Bush. In fact, he continues to make the same (and worse) mistakes under the cover of a sympathetic media and a blindly loyal Democratic electorate.
Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, who risked his life to help save his fellow Americans in last year's terror attack in Benghazi, is still recovering at Walter Reed medical center.
Some in the press dismiss the Benghazi congressional investigation as mere partisan politics. Their audience needs to know what this is really about.
One of the hopeful outcomes of the Senate confirmation hearings for John Brennan to be director of the Central Intelligence Agency and Chuck Hagel to be the secretary of Defense was to gain some concrete answers to the Benghazi tragedy. So far, though, no additional useful information has been released. Further, the testimony of former Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey on Feb. 7 before the Senate Armed Services Committee only raised more questions. The cloud of a cover-up continues.
U.S. embassies and diplomatic outposts have skipped or exempted themselves from security requirements without the knowlege of the State Department in Washington, creating an ad hoc system so riddled with exceptions that the agency’s internal watchdog is raising new safety alarms just months after the deadly attack on the Benghazi consulate.
