The final Benghazi Committee report indicated then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied to the public about the particulars of the terrorist attack and had an important hand in denying military assistance to embassy personnel during the attack. It took the Clinton campaign only moments to roll out a tried and true campaign tactic to discredit the findings. Clinton’s presidential campaign said that the 800-page report was a partisan conspiracy theory. Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon callously dismissed the report, saying, “this Committee’s chief goal is to politicize the deaths of four brave Americans in order to try to attack the [sic] administration and hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign.” Nothing to see here, right? Wrong.
First and foremost, the report continued to confirm that the Administration in general, and Hillary Clinton specifically, lied to the public about the cause of the attack and who was responsible. The report documents the comments made in parallel with the actions known. Clinton and National Security Advisor Susan Rice told the public one story when they knew the truth. Furthermore, the truth of the Benghazi attacks-that it was terror-related and not a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islam film-was covered up as a deliberate act that included the “president,” Clinton, Rice, and the White House public relations staff. They conspired to repeatedly lie to the American people in hopes of reshaping the political narrative.
Congressman Trey Gowdy’s letter summarizing the report states: “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered the only official statement from the U.S. government regarding the attacks. At the time the statement was released, the Secretary’s office had real-time information about the attacks from multiple sources…The Secretary’s statement included the line “[s]ome have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet”-a reference to the video. Nothing from the agents on the ground, or the Deputy Chief of Mission in Libya, mentioned anything about “inflammatory material posted on the Internet.” News articles did.
“The Secretary’s statement therefore began a series of public statements by senior administration officials over the next two weeks that conflated the attacks with the inflammatory material-despite a lack of intelligence or eyewitness accounts ever linking the two together.” The report also revealed that Clinton was uncooperative with the investigation and that more unsecured emails were discovered. Moreover, her actions allowed four Americans to die. This report alone should solidify in every American voter’s mind that Clinton is unfit for holding any public office. She is a liar, a conspirator and a lawbreaker. Jesus said in Matthew 7 there are many false prophets who wear sheep’s clothing, but are ravening wolves, “Wherefore, by their fruits you shall know them.” We know Clinton’s fruits, and that should be enough to ensure she holds no elective office.
