“In addition, the House Armed Services Committee conducted a review of air assets available to respond to Benghazi. No U.S. government element refused or denied requests for emergency assistance during the crisis. The evidence also does not show there were armed air assets above Benghazi at any time or that any such assets were called off from assisting U.S. personnel on the ground. According to witness testimony, the security officials on the ground did use laser sights, but they did so as an escalatory demonstration of force in an effort to deter some attackers. They were not lasing targets for air assets..”
Another day, another one of my Benghazi Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests has been denied — this time from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). As previously reported, the CIA also denied my Benghazi FOIA request.

We still do not know what Ambassador Christopher Stevens was doing in Benghazi or what his meeting with Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin was about. We still do not know what time his body was recovered or how he died. We still do not know who issued the stand down orders declining to help Americans under attack.

In my USSR the main instrument for the accursed negative selection was the common fear of many ugly things, like labor camps, psycho-prisons, exile or dire poverty. But Ms Peschmann shows that VIP cards can be as effective tools of negative selection too – and she shows it with a great skill and a great disdain! Her vivid picture of numerous assistants of chief assistants of chief consultants, always ready to be active silent accomplices in the boss’ crimes, made me shudder: I felt myself rather inside Kremlin, not inside the White House!

The best part of political theater, otherwise known as the ‘ah ha’ moment for truth seekers, can often be found when the show ends. In this epic tragedy, called the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Hearing: Benghazi: The Attack and the Lesson Learned, held on December 20, 2012, starring Senator John Kerry, as the Chairman, it happened right after Kerry’s dramatic closing statement concluded. The lights dimmed, the press started packing up their gear, the stars/senators, in crisp suits, with their shine-free faces courtesy of heavy pancake make-up, exited stage left. It was a quick moment but a telling one. Did you catch it?
“The Board found that Ambassador Stevens made the decision to travel to Benghazi independently of Washington, per standard practice. Timing for his trip was driven in part by commitments in Tripoli, as well as a staffing gap between principal officers in Benghazi. Plans for the Ambassador’s trip provided for minimal close protection security support and were not shared thoroughly with the Embassy’s country team, who were not fully aware of planned movements off compound. The Ambassador did not see a direct threat of an attack of this nature … His status as the leading U.S. government advocate on Libya policy, and his expertise on Benghazi in particular, caused Washington to give unusual deference to his judgments.”
While it might sound callous to some people, there is very good reason for Ambassador Bolton’s skepticism considering the last time Hillary avoided testifying it was due to ‘scheduling conflicts’ which included a wine tasting in Australia. But it goes much deeper than that. Hillary turned dodging indictments and perjury charges into an art form during the Clinton era. The question is will lawmakers on both sides of the aisle finally hold her accountable or allow Hillary to continue making a mockery out of the rule of law?
What you witnessed from the Obama-Clinton regime is called “cohesive strategy.” We have seen that cover-up tactic before. It was successfully used by the Clinton White House during the investigations of the Clinton era as documented in The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White Stayed in Power to Reemerge in the Obama White House and on the World Stage. Additionally, it notably appears in my latest book, Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer.
