Nope not some history lesson about the Greeks butchering those Muslim Persians (wait to see how long it takes for some to grasp the idea)…it is not a tale of undying heroism…..nope it is about a saga that took 2 years and countless hearings and a final 800 pages of document…..the infamous Benghazi Affair……
The Select Committee on the Benghazi Incident has finally issued a final report……it was released to the press before it was released to their colleagues min the Congress….aren’t the political games just fascination?
If my reader would like a synopsis of the report then here’s your link……plus if one would like to read the whole thing (highly unlikely for most Americans do not have the attention span it takes to rational read)……
For the more lazy out there…..
Two years after they began an investigation into the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Libya, Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee on Tuesday unveiled an 800-page report laying into the White House for its handling of the incident and presenting previously undisclosed facts from testimony.
The document is heavy on details from the night itself, in a report Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign dismissed as a redux of discredited “conspiracy theories.”
Americans rescued from the facility in Benghazi were saved by Gaddafi loyalists — not the Libyan government or the militia group contractually obligated to provide security, the final report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi reveals.
After lethal mortar attacks, a special operator in Benghazi testified that: “We decided that the situation we had was untenable to stay at the compound. We didn’t have enough shooters and there were too many wounded, and we were definitely going to lose our State Department wounded if we had stayed there much longer.”
The Americans in the annex, though, did not have the security vehicles and “gun trucks” necessary to evacuate to the airport in Benghazi. Help would eventually arrive.
“The forces that arrived at the Annex shortly after the mortar attacks were able to transport all State Department and CIA personnel safely to the airport. The forces, known as Libyan Military Intelligence, arrived with 50 heavily-armed security vehicles,” the select committee’s report says.(Daily Caller)
