On Tuesday, the United States government filed charges against several people that they believe were responsible for the raid on the US Consulate in Benghazi last year the resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The charges were filed in a sealed order in New York. One of the people charged is Ahmed Abu Khattalah, the leader of a Libyan militia.
The charges have come months after the attack and only after a mountain of information implicating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of neglect in protecting Americans at the compound and President Barack Obama from lying to the American people and the families of those killed about what happened.
The White House and State Department are still trying to do everything possible to squelch the scandal surrounding the Benghazi raid. There has been a wealth of information and documents proving that Ambassador Stevens had made numerous requests for additional security, but State Department officials, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, ignored them.
If I were to list all of the reasons that Clinton and Obama should also be charged in the Benghazi raid and deaths, it would probably fill too many pages for most people to read through. However, in spite of ignoring the requests for help and then lying to the American people, I believe that the most egregious crime of all was when President Barack Obama, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta lied to the families of the four fallen Americans.
Three government leaders looked the parents and relatives in their face and promised them that they would keep them informed of what happened and just how their loved ones died. Once they walked away from the tarmac, any care or concern for the families were gone and the lies, cover ups and finger pointing began. Months later the families had not heard a single word from any of the three that promised to keep them informed.
If being so arrogant, insensitive and uncaring was a crime, Obama, Clinton and Panetta should all be facing charges relating to what happened at Benghazi and how they treated the families afterward.
And I want you to consider one last thing. If Hillary Clinton can be that cold hearted to a grieving mother, why would anyone want to even consider her for president in 2016. We already know that Obama is an unfeeling s.o.b. but I hope America realizes that so is Hillary Clinton.
