“Never ending security threats…” Ambassador Chris Stevens’ last personal journal entry, dated September 11, 2012.
The Benghazi Report revealed many disturbing truths surrounding the senseless tragedy that claimed four American lives on September 11, 2012, but in this election year, one particular fact should stand out to anyone saying, “I’m with her” this November.
Multiple sources who were on the ground in Benghazi told Fox News’ Adam Housley that less than a year before the attack, the consulate warned the State Department under Hillary Clinton that an Ansaria al-Sharia group had moved in next door to the mission.
Shortly after noon in Cairo [6 a.m. in Washington D.C.] on September 11, 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Cairo posted a tweet condemning those who would “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”
However, despite several requests for increased security, including weapons upgrades, our men were were repeatedly denied help.
According to the Republican House Select Committee on Benghazi report, the reason Obama administration did not send our men the weapons they requested is because they were not “aesthetically pleasing”.
In an interview on FOX News Tuesday morning, Adam Housley said among the reactions of those he spoke with was a special agent who was on the ground in Benghazi that night told him:
The report continues to show how ridiculous the State Department makes it to give support to a special agent on the ground when he says he needs support.
There were about 10 of us who continually asked for more weapons and more security in Benghazi and were routinely denied.
Housely pointed out that he had previously reported on that fact because the State Department told him it wasn’t ‘aesthetically pleasing’ to have a belt-fed machine gun, for example.
The Benghazi Report also confirmed that Obama skipped his daily briefing the morning after four Americans were killed in the terrorist attack on September 11, 2012.
