COLONEL: HILLARY MADE DECISION NOT TO POST MARINES AT BENGHAZI

COLONEL: HILLARY MADE DECISION NOT TO POST MARINES AT BENGHAZI

Michael Patrick Leahy

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt laid the blame for the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans at the Benghazi, Libya American mission on Hillary Clinton and the State Department:

The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards and an outhouse for a mission, you’re inviting it.

Earlier, on Howie Carr's radio show Thursday, Colonel Hunt said that the American mission at Benghazi "was like a cardboard building, there wasn't even bullet proof glass." In addition, Hunt said the security guards inside the mission didn't have bullets:

Howie Carr: They weren't allowed to have bullets, is that correct?

Colonel Hunt: That's true. They were private security. The rules of engagement were ridiculous.

Hunt told Breitbart News that the new State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, approved and signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton since the 2011 fall of Khadafi's regime, severely compromised the safety and security of murdered Ambassador Stevens and all American diplomatic staff in Libya.

He also stated that the decision not to staff Benghazi with Marines was made by Secretary of State Clinton when she attached her signature to the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document. Breitbart News has subsequently learned that under those rules of engagement, Secretary Clinton prohibited Marines from providing security at any American diplomatic installation in Libya.....

Doubt it. It will be all over the web, talk radio and Fox but the MSM will ignore it.

No. The media won't cover it. If a Republican brings it up, the admin will lie and deny it, and the news media will report it as a Republican gaffe.

The only joy I see in this is that hillary WILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! GOD protect and comfort all true Americans under threat or that have been attacked. GOD bless them and their families! I pray that GOD delivers obama... to a permanent civilian residence in Hawaii.

Somebody needs to page Issa. We need a full investigation, stat. And no MSM allowed in.

If Hillary and by extension, Obongo were DIRECTLY responsible for this, not only through general incompetence, but gross negligence, they cannot be allowed to get away with it. Just another reason to vote NO on Bozo.

Thanks to Hillary no ‘one’ got hurt there.
Arming American soldiers at the embassy would just escalate the situation. Better to have Obama’s calm cool voice of reason instead. Look how well it’s working.

Good thing that Obama just sent in those two dozen unarmed Marines in response to this. That should fix things.

In the 2016 campaign, the media will not mention this...out of respect for the families of the deceased.

And Hillary! will sail through unscathed.

Obama must be protected at all costs, so they need someone pretty high up to take the fall, IMO. It should be Hillary, but I don't think Obama has the guts to do it.

I am thinking it is about to get ugly. Look at this here.

The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it won’t answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete.

Bunker Mentality.

Didn't Clinton Administration Department of State and his ambassador in Yemen, Barbara Bodine, demand that the U.S.S. Cole personnel not be armed out of "respect" or something for the Yemeni people?

Next time send Demobrat State Department personnel over there to handle things . . .

Wow is right. If true.

But it's Hillary, so be careful. She's on this 24/7, guaranteed.

Remember, she doesn't have to sleep, and she doesn't blink.

On the other hand, she's never gotten past that reptilian brain thing, either...

... so brace yourself to witness a screwup of staggering proportions.

Again.

The world media is reporting on much of this... as is Fox. And the msm is covering it in bits and pieces. Some liberal journolistas smell blood and blood to that species of shark is a strong attractant. This is an unfolding scandal... it will be devastating and a slow burn. I truly think this will finish off more than a few careers.

The alternate media is going to have to get the word out. The msm is in full Obama protection mode. They are like the 3 monkeys. Hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil. Example: they are blaming the movie for all that has happened. That way it is not Obama’s fault but the movies fault. Just absurd and a total farce.

I’m going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened –not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it — until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation that’s its got,” State Department spokeswoman Victorian Nuland told reporters late Friday afternoon. “So I’m going to send to the FBI for those kinds of questions and they’re probably not going to talk to you about it,” she said.

She must resign

A person of conscience and character would, but we're talking about Hillary Clinton.

Plus there's this...

On Friday, Breitbart News filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the State Department to secure a copy of the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya.

Look for the State Department to continue to stonewall this request, and resist release of the document until after the election. Its contents will be just too damaging. In effect, the country will be able to see Hillary Clinton's signature on the document that served as Ambassador Chris Stevens's death warrant.

You can tell when a school of sharks is going to go into feeding frenzy. It starts slowly with them swimming back and forth sensing blood in the water and zoning in on the source... then they start circling and taking swipes at each other and then BAM... it is every shark for him or herself. I may be wrong... but the press hates weakness and they will exploit it. I could be dead wrong... but I have been alive for awhile and I have lived through Kennedy and Johnson and Nixon etc. I knew when scandals were brewing in the past and this looks exactly like the beginning of Watergate. The election will take the place of impeachment.
