Hillary’s State Department Hired Terrorists to Guard Benghazi Mission

Hillary’s State Department ignored internal advice  and hired an obscure firm from Wales called Blue Mountain Group to protect U.S. diplomats in Benghazi. They in turn put out a newspaper ad in the local terror-plagued region and, took those applicants to assemble a team of 20 guards, many with terror ties.

The firm was paid $9.2 million per year for that.

What does an ad like that look like, “Wanted, trustworthy guards for U.S. mission”?

Fox News spoke to a source about this.

FBI finds up to 30 deleted Benghazi emails Clinton did not turn over

 Powerline

I hadn’t intended to write two Hillary Clinton email posts tonight. However, news that FBI investigators recovered 30 Benghazi-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s wiped server is potentially too important not to comment on right away.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta today that some of the 30 recovered emails relating to Benghazi — they didn’t say now many — were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department’s lawyer also told the judge that the Department needs until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

Judge Mehta was skeptical. He questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, urged that the process be expedited, and ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.

As AP points out, Clinton previously has claimed that she withheld and deleted only personal emails not related to her duties as Secretary of State. Clearly, though, any and all Benghazi-related emails related to those duties

If it turns out that some of the newly recovered emails contain new content, as opposed to just duplicating previously turned over material, Hillary will be caught in yet another lie — this one relating to Benghazi, an area of particular vulnerability.

In addition, it’s possible that the recovered emails contain incriminating information about Clinton’s handling of Benghazi and/or the truthfulness of her public comments about the debacle. Such emails are just the ones Team Clinton would have the greatest incentive to destroy.

Here’s where the issue of redaction may be important. As Judge Mehta told the government, redacting 30 or fewer emails should be a simple task — one that does not require a month to accomplish. However, redacting them artfully enough to prevent damage to Hillary Clinton is a bit more complicated, if it comes to that.

Amb. Stevens’s Deputy in Libya: Washington Did Not Ensure We Had Ability to Protect Ourselves

The State Department’s second-ranking diplomat in Libya on the day that terrorists attacked the U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods says a key lesson Americans should take from that event is that officials in Washington, D.C. have a responsibility to make sure Americans serving their country abroad have the ability to protect themselves.

“That did not happen in Benghazi,” says Gregory Hicks, who was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli on Sept. 11, 2012.

“I think, first, that I hope that the American people will appreciate the risks that diplomats and intelligence officers and our military personnel take to protect and preserve our democracy and our way of life,” Hicks said in an interview with CNSNews.com.

“Every day, we risk our lives out in some of the most dangerous environments and conditions imaginable,” he said. “And our officials in Washington have a responsibility: They have a responsibility to ensure that we have the ability to protect ourselves, to be protected, when we are risking our lives for our country. That did not happen in Benghazi.

Never in American history has anyone as unfit and undeserving as Hillary Clinton run for U.S. President. While she stands on the threshold of being elected to the White House, she quite literally belongs in a prison cell. This article lays out the case against her, chapter and verse.

Hillary Deleted Subpoenaed Emails Related to Benghazi Terror Attack

Moonbattery
Evidence accrues that Shrillary belongs in a federal penitentiary:
The State Department says about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI’s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.
That’s not the Freedom Caucus. That’s the Democrats’ own State Department admitting this.
Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton.
But… but… she gave her word that she turned over everything government-related!
I’m sure the government will hold the Democratic Party nominee for president to account for deleting classified emails that dealt specifically with a terrorist attack against Americans in Libya, Americans that even worked for the government, four of which died in the attack.
Oh wait, the FBI has already said Hillary shouldn’t be charged for anything.
WHAT A FARCE!
The Benghazi emails were subpoenaed by Congress on March 4, 2015. It appears she had deleted them the previous December. However, the State Department had asked her to turn over her work-related correspondence on October 28, 2014.
At the very least this strongly suggests that she willfully mishandled classified information, and that she perjured herself to cover it. Even a half-serious attempt at justice would likely place her behind bars. Yet she will be our next president.

America is No Longer a Nation of Laws

US Defense Watch

America has become a nation ruled by a corrupt, criminal establishment that is above the law and too big to jail.

From endless executive orders signed to flout the Constitution; to Solyndra, Benghazi and Fast and Furious, the Obama Administration has a disdain for the rule of law and the American people not seen since the Intolerable Acts were nailed to Boston City Hall in 1774.

The only thing worse than an Obama White House would be a Hillary Clinton White House.

The possibility of four or eight years of a Hillary Clinton Presidency is a nightmare Stephen King couldn’t even imagine. The Oval Office would become a Potomac version of Tony Soprano’s Bada Bing Club basement headquarters. Hillary is not only a delusional, lying criminal; she’s also completely inept in making national security decisions.

With Hellary you get a two-fer; a criminal and an incompetent idiot.

CCB Press Conference on Benghazi Largely Ignored by Mainstream Media

AIM

Accuracy in Media

By: Roger Aronoff

 

On June 29, the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington to discuss the release of its new report on the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the Special Mission Compound and CIA Annex, resulting in the deaths of four Americans. As usual, the liberal media largely stayed away. Apparently, if The New York Times, CNN, the Associated Press and NBC don’t cover a story, no matter how important, it isn’t really news. So instead, the only representative from the mainstream media was The Washington Post’s designated hit man, Dana Milbank, who regularly trolls conservative gatherings to heap scorn, sarcasm and peddle misinformation to his waiting readers. That is the sad state of journalism in this country today.

Mr. Milbank’s penchant for playing fast and loose with the details has gotten him in trouble before, when he claimed that conservative speakers had “taunted” a young Muslim girl. These speakers had, in fact, thanked her for her presence. In the latest case, Milbank wrote an opinion piece, not a news story, with the online headline, “Benghazi Conspiracy Theorists Turn on Trey Gowdy.” The headline in the print edition of the paper was “Appeasing the far right? You’ll always end up wrong.”

During the course of Milbank’s article, he called the members of the CCB “a coalition of far-right ­foreign-policy types,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “agitators.” This is all part of the attempt to discredit the messenger, because Milbank can’t really dispute the message—although he has certainly tried. But at least he was there, and spelled the names correctly, though he was wrong about the number of members on the commission (it’s 14, plus two advisory, not 11). Apparently the Post’s Fact-Checker was busy on other stories that day. Maybe they should hire more.

Milbank found our report to be what he called “full of inventive accusations.”

“They found ‘troubling evidence that Obama and Clinton were deeply and knowingly involved in running guns to al-Qaeda in Libya,’” writes Milbank, “as well as ‘a clear case of official U.S. government submission to the Islamic Law on slander.’”

“They determined that the Obama administration ‘switched sides in what was then called the Global War on Terror’ and ‘benefited this country’s worst enemies,’” he continues. “They wrote that Clinton herself blocked U.S. military forces from attempting a rescue mission, and they attributed the decision to oust Libya’s Moammar Gaddafi in part to financial interests of the Clinton Foundation.”
