Below is an excerpt of the letter sent to the president by the Oversight Committee. Also a link to the documents and photos that were attached to the letter. I like it when I can find the original documents so that nothing has to be filtered through the corrupt left wing media or anyone, for that matter.
Just a note about what I hear about obama being offended at being questioned about this = who cares if he is offended. And as far as “politicizing” it, the hell with that, too. What happened here was political, the lies and coverup was political, the phoney rushed up service at the airport where obama watched the “caskets” (empty I’m guessing) come off the plane was political, the set-up at the debate with Candy and obama colluding was political. And do you think for one minute that if this were a republican president and something even close to this event happened that the democrats and their mouthpiece the corrupt media would not be politicizing it day and night and twilight?
The TRUTH is not political and that’s what we must have to get to the bottom of this, why Americans were left unprotected and sitting ducks in such a hostile country. Those responsible must be held accountablee, no question about that.
They don’t get to make things up and then say let’s just move along.
So “offend” somebody is the very least of it and I have heard enough of thin skinned people being offended over nothing or something or whatever. The $75,000 advertisment being spent for an ad to further apologize for some obscure and stupid film is outrageous, especially now that the president said he called it an act of terror on the 12th of September. Of course, he did not, but even if he did that makes his actions following even worse. He first of all went to bed, then got up and went to Las Vegas to campaign, not knowing whether there might be more attacks coming, whether it may be a larger plot, that the mainland might be in danger? And I find out now that they were watching the whole thing in realtime! And did nothing!
We have a president who cannot be trusted, who lies when he opens hs mouth, who thinks about himself first and foremost, who is quick to take credit for anything he thinks will help him, and even quicker to blame somebody else for everything else. He is a childish man devoid of character who speaks down to the people as if we will believe any dumbass thing he puts out.
So, anyway, for those who like to dig out the facts for themselves, this is from the horse’s mouth.
WASHINGTON –Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and National Security Subcommittee Chairman Jason Chaffetz today sent President Obama a letter and 166 pages of documents related to security threats and the process of ‘normalization’ in Libya. The letter requests that the White House respond to questions about its role in the controversial decision to have the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya pursue a course of ‘normalization’ that was intended to help create the perception of success in Libya and contrast it to U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Excerpts of the letter from Chairman Issa and Rep. Chaffetz: “Information supplied to the committee by senior officials demonstrates that not only did the administration repeatedly reject requests for increased security despite escalating violence, but it also systematically decreased existing security to dangerous and ineffective levels. We have been told repeatedly that the administration did this to effectuate a policy of ‘normalization’ in Libya after the conclusion of its civil war. These actions not only resulted in extreme vulnerability, but also undermined Ambassador Stevens and the diplomatic mission.” “Multiple warnings about security threats were contained in Ambassador Stevens’ own words in multiple cables sent to Washington, D.C., and were manifested by two prior bombings of the Benghazi compound and an assassination attempt on the British ambassador. For this administration to assume that terrorists were not involved in the 9/11 anniversary attack would have required a willing suspension of disbelief.”“The American people deserve nothing less than a full explanation from this administration about these events, including why the repeated warnings about a worsening security situation appear to have been ignored by this administration. Americans also deserve a complete explanation about your administration’s decision to accelerate a normalized presence in Libya at what now appears to be at the cost of endangering American lives. These critical foreign policy decisions are not made by low or mid-level career officials – they are typically made through a structured and well-reasoned process that includes the National Security Council at the White House.” http://alturl.com/4v5xp
