The House of Representative’s Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations just released a report about Benghazi that places the blame for the Benghazi attack squarely on the White House and Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Their report confirmed that Obama’s administration “exaggerated the security preparedness of US foreign missions — especially those on Northern Africa and the Middle East” before our consulate in Benghazi was attacked, leading to the murders of four Americans.
The Congressional report also cites a massive “lack of communication” from the White House, describing it as “devastating” and “breathtaking.”
Bizpac Review reports:
A House subcommittee is placing responsibility for the Benghazi attack on the steps of the White House and the State Department.
“What is absolutely breathtaking is the lack of communication from senior White House officials to those who were on the ground,” Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Chairwoman Martha Roby, R-Ala., told Fox News host Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” Tuesday, shortly after her panel released its report pinning the blame on the Obama administration.
The White House had sent out a press release the day before the attack saying U.S. embassies and consulates were prepared, even though Gen. Carter Ham, then-commander of the military in the region, had never been consulted, Roby said.
The report concluded that the Obama administration exaggerated the security preparedness of U.S. foreign missions — especially those on Northern Africa and the Middle East — prior to the 9/11 anniversary in 2012, according to Military Times.
“We were woefully unprepared militarily when it came to what assets we had that were available once it was clear this was an attack,” Roby said. “The lack of communication from Washington to those on the ground in the weeks and months leading up to the attack is devastating.”

In case you missed it, the Senate’s Intelligence Committee also faulted the White House and Hillary’s State Department for the attack in Libya on 9/11′s anniversary, confirming that it was indeed “preventable.”
