Recently former president Obama made a ludicrous claim about Benghazi being a “conspiracy theory”, along with some other absolutely inane left-wing postulating about a bunch of issues supposedly having found a home in the Republican party. Former Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz really called him on the carpet, and I think he did a great job of revealing what a piece of work that commentary really was. There was more followup detail that may not be as widely known regarding how the survivors were treated once they were out of Benghazi.
Our report comes from The Chicks On The Right:
Jason Chaffetz is a Fox News contributor and former Utah congressman and he was one of the first U.S. representatives to visit Benghazi after the attack on Septemeber 11, 2012. He hit out at former President Barack Obama for calling Benghazi a “wild conspiracy theory” and he explained the horrible thing that the Obama administration did to the Benghazi heroes.
First Chaffetz hit Obama for failing to protect the people at the mission and the CIA compound.
From Fox News Insider:
He said Obama failed to protect the Americans stationed at the Benghazi compound and he failed to act in the aftermath of the deadly attack, and now he cannot “rewrite history.”
“It is offensive to the men and women who served in Libya, who served this country and who serve in the United States military, because that president — President Obama — failed to act,” said Chaffetz, who chaired the House Oversight Committee from 2015 to 2017 and led investigations into the attack.
“Shame on the president for saying that,” Chaffetz said.
There had been many threats against Western targets and two prior attacks on the mission itself, including a prior one by Al Qaeda in June 2012 that blew a hole in the compound wall and a bombing in April involving a compromised security guard.
Yet, even knowing that, they still didn’t increase the security or pull the people out, despite desperate pleas from the people in Libya on the ground.
To top this all off, Obama and Hillary didn’t even pay the Benghazi survivors’ way home from Germany! They were fired while still overseas, and were left to fend for themselves to get a plane ride home. That’s just crazy!
Conspiracy theory, eh? I can’t decide whether or not to tell Obama to just shut up and quit making a fool of himself. Or, should we be encouraging him to really turn it up? Maybe if he ran a tag team rally with Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi they could break a thousand attendees. He could only draw 750 or so in Anaheim by himself. The more I look at it, the more I think we should just let them all run their mouths, because like Ms Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, they’re helping the Republican party hugely by doing their best foot-in-mouth routine.
