Timeline Review: Still Looking For Answers On Benghazi

Over at Townhall.com, former Congressman Bob Beauprez has an excellent review of the unanswered questions about Benghazi and the coverup still being perpetrated by the Obama administration. It’s well worth a read.

Benghazi: Still looking for Answers:

It has been nearly eight months since Ambassador Chris Stevens, his diplomatic aid Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty we’re killed in a terrorist attack on the US Mission outpost in Benghazi, Libya.

The Obama Administration continues to maintain that it has disclosed all the information available and that lingering questions are “politically motivated.”  The Administration remains in denial about the contradictory and incomplete information that has been shared.  “What difference does it make?” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton angrily said during a Congressional hearing.

Thanks to the persistence of several Members of Congress, and family members of the fallen victims the search for the truth has continued.  Many bloggers, investigative journalists, and particularly Fox News have kept the quest for answers alive, as well. A Line of Sight has written about the Benghazi scandal no less than three dozen times.

Yesterday, Fox News ran two special reports.  The video below reveals serious charges that threats have been made to silence four whistleblowers within the State Department and CIA that would like to come forward to tell what they know about the Benghazi attack.

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.comThe report below includes an interview with a military expert with intimate knowledge about Benghazi.  The “Special Operator” with his identity concealed for “fear of reprisal” explains that Special Operation Forces and military assets were in fact in the region and could have been deployed to Benghazi before the fatal second attack.  That information is in direct conflict with the Administrations claims. This is the first of a three part report that we will continue to follow.

Benghazi: Still looking for Answers, Part II:

Yesterday we posted the first of a three part report by Fox News regarding the assault on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi, Libya last September.  Below are the second installments that aired last evening. In the first, the identity-concealed Special Operator reveals that the Obama Administration knows the identity of the mastermind of the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead, but is “sitting on the information” and taking no action.  That’s because the Administration “doesn’t want to upset anybody” in Libya according to the Special Operator.

Within hours after the attack on September 11, 2012 Obama pledged to “bring to justice those responsible.” However, the Special Operator confirms that the U.S. has both the intelligence and the capability to fulfill the President’s pledge, but no one will give the order to act. That unwillingness must be enormously difficult for the family members of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty who perished in Benghazi.  It also sends an unmistakable message about American weakness and cowardice to our enemies.

… James Rosen [has expanded] on the developing story involving CIA and State Department officials who want to come forward with the truth about Benghazi, but charge that they have been denied a process to do so and even threatened by superiors.  Curiously, just last November Barack Obama signed the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act to supposedly provide more transparency in government and encouragement for government workers to expose “misconduct, fraud, and illegality.”

During his press conference the day following Fox News’ initial report of the threatened whistleblowers, Obama dodged Fox reporter Ed Henry’s question about the whistleblowers claims saying, “I’m not aware” of the issue.  Either the White House staff is totally incompetent beyond imagination for failing to alert the President that Henry would almost certainly be asking the question he did, or the President was less than truthful – again.

Benghazi: Still looking for Answers, Part III:

“They’re making up for all the mistakes they made with excuse.”

In this space over the last two days, we have focused on the three part series by Fox News still looking for the truth and answers to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, diplomat Sean Smith, and former SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

In the Part III report by Adam Housley [on Fox News], the military Special Operator with intimate knowledge of the Benghazi attack charges that the Obama Administration “had no plan” of how to respond to the attack despite the multiple security warnings that preceded that fateful night.  The expert “monitored the Benghazi attack in real time” according to Housley.

“They’re making up for all the mistakes they made with excuse,” the expert claims, referring specifically to the failings of the State Department to adequately prepare and a serious communications failing between State and the Department of Defense.

The Special Operator notes that a distress call for “all available assets in the vicinity for help” was issued during the attack, but the State Department never gave permission for the military to engage.  Housley specifically identifies Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, and Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy as the responsible derelict officials.

Next is the third installment report regarding revelations that at least four officials with the CIA and State Department want to come forward with details about the Benghazi attack with “whistleblower” protection, but that protection has not been afforded them.  In fact, through Victoria Toensing, comes a claim that the officials feel they have been threatened to keep silent.

Toensing asserts “with certainty” that the four whistleblowers have information that is inconsistent with the Obama Administration’s account of the attack.
