Sunday night, CBS ran an interview on “60 Minutes” with one of the survivors of the Benghazi terror attack. This interview is on the lips of many around the country, and is substantiating what many of us have known all along: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied through her TEETH about what happened there, and did so repeatedly. She then threw a hissy fit when being questioned by the US Senate, and infamously proclaimed, “What difference at this point does it make?!” Well, it made a lot of difference THEN, and it makes a lot of difference now. (Oh, and I suppose it goes without saying that she was not the only one lying her rear end off. So was her boss, President Obama.)
Without further ado, below is the entire “60 Minutes” investigation with Lara Logan:
How brave of this survivor, “Morgan Jones” (not his real name), a security officer, to come forward, and how sad that it takes bravery and courage to come forward to discuss what really happened in Benghazi. I truly hope this will embolden other survivors of that terror attack to come forward and speak their truth about what happened that fateful day.
This is just a heartbreaking expose to watch. To see our dedicated servants, Woods and Hicks, speak about how hard they tried to get our leaders to pay attention, to make changes in light of other terror attacks, and to provide more security and have all that fall flat, just moved me to tears.
Not only did people die there, and needlessly so, but that fateful day marked a major turning point in how this nation treats those serving in harm’s way. Never before would we leave people behind in the midst of a fight. Never before would we refuse to try and render aid and military might to those in the midst of a firefight when they were begging for help. Never before has a deaf ear, or bind eye, been turned toward those serving our nation on that level, ESPECIALLY when adequate warning of an attack had been given.
That point is addressed by Rep. Michael McCaul, Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee in the following interview from Monday morning:
Chairman McCaul makes a lot of good points in this interview, including how not only has no one been brought to account for this attack, but no rewards have been offered. That is yet another break in the traditional MO of how this nation operates, and not a good one by any means.
One can only hope that the “60 Minutes” expose will finally bring some kind of justice for the families of the victims. They have suffered long enough with the lies and dissembling by this Administration.
And hopefully, former Sec. Clinton will also be held accountable for both her POLICIES which enabled this terror attack to occur, and for the numerous lies she has spewed since then. It is far, far past time.
That’s what is on my mind this morning. How about you? This is an Open Thread.
