"They're making up for all the mistakes they made with excuse."
In this space over the last two days, we have focused on the three part series by Fox News still looking for the truth and answers to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, diplomat Sean Smith, and former SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
Below is the Part III report by Adam Housley in which the military Special Operator with intimate knowledge of the Benghazi attack charges that the Obama Administration "had no plan" of how to respond to the attack despite the multiple security warnings that preceded that fateful night. The expert "monitored the Benghazi attack in real time" according to Housley.
"They're making up for all the mistakes they made with excuse," the expert claims, referring specifically to the failings of the State Department to adequately prepare and a serious communications failing between State and the Department of Defense.
The Special Operator notes that a distress call for "all available assets in the vicinity for help" was issued during the attack, but the State Department never gave permission for the military to engage. Housley specifically identifies Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, and Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy as the responsible derelict officials.
Next is the third installment report regarding revelations that at least four officials with the CIA and State Department want to come forward with details about the Benghazi attack with "whistleblower" protection, but that protection has not been afforded them. In fact, through Victoria Toensing, comes a claim that the officials feel they have been threatened to keep silent.
Toensing asserts "with certainty" that the four whistleblowers have information that is inconsistent with the Obama Administration's account of the attack.
It is worth noting that Toensing is a highly respected and accomplished lawyer having previous experience as Counsel for the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, Deputy Assistant Attorney General during the Reagan Administration where she headed the Terrorism Unit at the Justice Department. Toensing's responsibilities included investigating and prosecuting the hijacking of TWA flight 847, the bombing of Pan Am flight 103, and the terrorist capture of the cruise ship Achille Lauro.
