Why would any American vote for someone who hires a known al Qaeda linked security firm to help to protect a US embassy compound along with the American’s inside it?
That’s the question that needs to be brought up when Hillary officially announces her campaign for president! You may also want to ask Hillary why this fact was obviously omitted from the State Department sanctioned Accountability Review Board (ARB) that investigated the attack on the Benghazi compound.
According to the 88 page Senate report, that’s exactly what happened. The Senate report revealed that the State Department contracted with the Libyan 17th of February Brigade militia to provide security outside the Benghazi compound. The 17th of Feb militia is part of the Ansar al Sharia banner group who is known to have ties to al Qaeda. Additionally, Ansar al Sharia has been implicated as the group who carried out the attack that killed US Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans.
The report states that at the time of the attack, there were three armed members of the 17th of Feb militia serving as part of the external security at the Benghazi compound. Then the report described what happened:
“Outside the compound, the security team asked 17th of February Brigade members to ‘provide cover’ for them to advance to the gate of the Temporary Mission Facility with gun trucks. The February Brigade members refused, saying they preferred to negotiate with the attackers instead.”
“Eventually, the security team initiated their plan of assault on the Mission compound. Some members of the 17th of February Brigade ‘jump[ed] into the vehicle’ and ‘a few 17 Feb members follow[ed] behind on foot to support the team’ according to the informal CIA notes provided to the Committee.”
Yet, the ABR report, sanctioned by the State Department, reported that the members of the 17th of Feb Brigade actually helped American personnel to avoid a roadblock after leaving the compound. The ABR paints a completely different picture of what happened and the role of the 17th of Feb Brigade and it says nothing about their ties to Ansar al Sharia and al Qaeda.
So who are you going to believe? Are we supposed to accept the ABR which basically was the State Department investigating the State Department or the US Senate investigation whose report clearly lays blame on the Hillary Clinton’s State Department and provides further evidence of it being covered up?
Hillary Clinton is just as evil and vile as Barack Obama and if she is elected president in 2016, you can be assured that conditions in America and abroad will get worse, not better.
