From the very first moments of the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aides were advised, in real time, that the compound was under a terrorist attack. In fact, less than two hours into the attack, they were told that the al-Qaeda affiliate in Libya, Ansar al-Sharia, had claimed responsibility.
These revelations and others are disclosed by a trove of e-mails and other documents pried from the State Department by Judicial Watch in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The FOIA litigation focuses on Mrs. Clinton’s involvement in the government actions before, during, and after the Benghazi attack, in which Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was murdered by terrorists.
Also killed in the attack were State Department information management officer Sean Smith, and two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were contract security employees and who had fought heroically, saving numerous American lives. At least ten other Americans were wounded, some quite seriously.
At 4:07 p.m., just minutes after the terrorist attack began, Cheryl Mills, Secretary Clinton’s chief-of-staff, and Joseph McManus, Mrs. Clinton’s executive assistant, received an e-mail from the State Department’s operations center (forwarded to her by Maria Sand, a special assistant to Secretary Clinton). It contained a report from the State Department’s regional security officer (RSO), entitled “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi is Under Attack.”
another e-mail — this one from Scott Bultrowicz, then director of diplomatic security (DSCC) — related: 15 armed individuals were attacking the compound and trying to gain entrance. The Ambassador is present in Benghazi and currently is barricaded within the compound.
At 6:06 p.m.
another e-mail that went to top State Department officials explained that the local al-Qaeda affiliate had claimed responsibility for the attack: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack (SBU): “(SBU) Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and call for an attack on Embassy Tripoli”
Gregory Hicks, Ambassador Stevens’ deputy who was in Tripoli at the time of the Benghazi attacks briefed Secretary Clinton that Benghazi was under terrorist attack and needed help immediately.
Gregory Hicks learned from the Libyan prime minister that Ambassador Stevens had been beaten, sexually assaulted, repeatedly stabbed and finally dragged into the street and slaughtered by muslim terrorists.
Despite ALL evidence that a terrorist attack was underway and that an al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group had claimed credit for it... Secretary Clinton KNOWINGLY and WILLFULLY LIED by issuing an official statement claiming the assault may have been in “response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”
This was a BOLD FACE LIE. What Hillary Clinton is doing, in this obvious LIE, is actually blaming AMERICANS for daring to draw the ire of poor defenseless INSANE muslims. After all EVERYONE knows that muslims are blood thirsty animals who will slaughter everyone in their path if they are bothered in the least. Everyone must cower down and NEVER dare excite the murderous muslim reaction to anything which even hints at the truth which is mohammad was a murdering, thieving , lying, pedophile.
These revelations in the newly released e-mails were unveiled by Judicial Watch this afternoon at a press conference in Washington. In a press statement, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton asserted that the e-mails left “no doubt that Hillary Clinton and her closest advisers knew the truth about the Benghazi attack from almost the moment it happened. Hillary Clinton DENIED sending help to the American's trapped in Benghazi. She left them to die. After she was dragged kicking and screaming before Congress she famoulsy said...
That any sane AMERICAN would even think of having this lying piece of offal in the White House is unthinkable. Hillary Clinton is a Liar and that is the best compliment I can give her.
