The four state department officials reported to have "resigned effective immediately" or been "relieved of their responsibilities" in the wake of the State Department internal analysis on the U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya aren't going away after all.
The New York Post is reporting that the highest ranking of the group, Assitant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, is "just switching desks" within the State Department. The other three are on "administrative leave and are expected back" on the job.
The findings of the Accountability Review Board assigned to investigate the Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012 found "systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels" in the State Department.
Within hours of the public dissemination of the scathing ARB findings on December 18, the State Department announced that Boswell and three others were done, and the four were quickly labeled as the "fall guys" for the still evolving tragic scandal that has been full of lies and deception from the beginning.
Many believe the scandal runs higher up in the Administration, possibly involving Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who has taken a conveniently taken a medical leave of absence for the last many weeks, and possibly other highly placed people inside the White House itself.
As if there hadn't already been enough Benghazi deceit, it appears that the Administration can't even tell the truth about people being fired or resigning or being sent on vacation or whatever actually happened. The consequence for "grossly inadequate" security leading to the death of a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans is apparently an extended holiday vacation.
When told of the New York Post report Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee exploded. "If these reports are correct, they're pathetic examples of yet another ruse about the tragedy of Benghazi," she told Fox News. "State Department officials proclaimed to the world that heads would roll after the deception related to the deceitful video excuse and the non-existent spontaneous protest outside the consulate. Now we see that the discipline is a lie and all that has happened is the shuffling of the deck chairs. That will in no way change what the ARB found to be systemic failures of management and leadership in the State Department."
I hjave no doubt this story is true, the four probably got a bonus for allowing their names to be used.
No one but Obama could have ordered the Stand Down, we know that as a fact.
The blame is with Obama backed by Hillary the
A quick thought just shot through my mind.
If it had been John Kerry as Secretary of State who got a concussion would he want another fake purple heart?
One giant CORRUPT administration.
You said it
Of course it is him. He doesn’t listen to anyone else
The answer is pretty obvious.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
The sky is green, the grass is blue
The Dem-MSM told me so
Where can an old
white man go?
All of these people work for we the people. The very least that they can be expected to deliver to us is honesty. Isn’t going to happen under this administration. They are following the Saul Alinsky blueprint. The end always justifies the means.
If HUNDREDS of murders of innocents is acceptable in Mexico to further the obama agenda here at home, what difference do four more murders make in an admnistration that uses the murders of hundreds or thousands of innocents to further political agendas all over the world?>>>>>>>>>>>>
Every fascist movement accomplishes unity of the first instance by defining an enemy outside of the nationalism of its base ( In Germany it was the Jews).The second stage of unification is when the violence, killing and aggression is turned inward to those who have been dehumanized, in our case, White Folk.
Obama is about to start the second phase by creating a hatred of the Caucasian in this nation.Its already started with the Zimmerman case.
they themselves are culpable. If they force someone to take a hit, that person will end up blowing a whistle.
Democrats never resign.
