Kerry will answer Benghazi questions

WASHINGTON

Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday he’s determined to answer any questions related to the deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, as the House Republican leader pushed for more information from the Obama administration.

One day after a lengthy House hearing on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, Kerry told reporters as he traveled overseas that anyone culpable of wrongdoing will be dealt with appropriately. But he’s withholding judgment on testimony in Congress suggesting that senior State Department officials were pressured or demoted for objecting to the administration’s initial and since-debunked explanations for the attacks.

After an independent Accountability Review Board found systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies in the State Department, four employees in the Near East Affairs and Diplomatic Security sections resigned or were reassigned.

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died when insurgents attacked the facility in two night-time assaults several hours apart.

Top administration officials first said the attackers were spontaneous protesters, angry about an anti- Islamic video circulating on the Internet. But they later acknowledged the attackers were well-equipped terrorists acting under plans.

Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, on Thursday asked President Barack Obama to direct the State Department to release internal emails, sent the day after the Benghazi assault, that deal with the cause for the attacks.

What is so difficult to understand?

Because they did not want to admit that Al Qaeda and other terrorist entities were running amok in Lybia, making the situation dangerous and out-of-control; for political reasons the Obama administration deliberately chose to NOT provide adequate military security.

Because they did not want to admit that Al Qaeda and other terrorist entities were running amok in Lybia, making the situation dangerous and out-of-control; for political reasons the Obama administration deliberately chose to NOT withdraw the ambassador and his staff, despite knowing that they were also not providing adequate security.

Because they did not want to admit that Al Qaeda and other terrorist entities were running amok in Lybia, making the situation dangerous and out-of-control; for political reasons the Obama administration deliberately chose to NOT send any security forces to rescue and extract the ambassador and his staff once the violence started on 9/11/2012.

Once they realized that their politically motivated actions had resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans, including the ambassador; for political reasons the Obama administration shifted into full spin and cover-up mode; where they remain until this day.

The truth is as evident as the nose on your face.
