Skip to comments.Kerry Clears Benghazi Officials Clinton Punished
Posted on 08/19/2013 7:48:41 PM PDT by kristinn
Secretary of State John Kerry has determined that the four State Department officials placed on administrative leave by Hillary Clinton after the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi do not deserve any formal disciplinary action and has asked them to come back to work at the State Department starting Tuesday.
Last December, Clintons staff told four mid-level officials to clean out their desks and hand in their badges after the release of the report of its own internal investigation into the Benghazi attack, compiled by the Administrative Review Board led by former State Department official Tom Pickering and former Joint Chiefs Chairman Ret. Adm. Mike Mullen. Those four officials have been in legal and professional limbo, not fired but unable to return to their jobs, for eight months until today.
Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Raymond Maxwell, the only official from the State Departments Near Eastern Affairs bureau to lose his job over the Benghazi attack, told The Daily Beast Monday he received a memo from the State Departments human resources department informing him his administrative leave status has been lifted and he should report for duty Tuesday morning.
No explanation, no briefing, just come back to work. So I will go in tomorrow, Maxwell said. I know what Hosni Mubarak must feel.
Maxwell previously told The Daily Beast that the reasons for his administrative leave designation had never been explained to him. He contended that he had little role in Libya policy and no involvement whatsoever in the events leading up to the Benghazi attack.
The overall goal is to restore my honor, Maxwell had said.

As usual the gutless pubbies DO NOTHING!
Sure they DO!!!!!!!!
They sit up there and pound their chests, holler and scream.
Have special meetings with a bunch of cameras and people under oath so that they can be lied to.
Subpoena records that never show up or are redacted so that they are of not use to anyone. Then they pound their chest, holler and scream how they are going to get to the bottom of this.
Go on TV in front of the AmeriKan people and say how rough a job they have but are going to get to the bottom of this, then take 3 month vacation.
THEN, the gutles pubbies DO NOTHING!!!!!
Republicans are Ball-Less
I wonder if these 4 people were overheard at the water cooler saying that Hillary was responsible for the 4 deaths??? Nah.....they’d be DEAD if they did that.
Obamas Iran-Contra: The real Benghazi scandal
Well, as they say, payback za 8itch! Kerry never did love Hill.
wow! an 8 month paid vacation!
Kerry is a waste of skin, but I am pretty sure these people were scapegoated and tossed aside by Hillary anyway.
We need a special investigator, but don’t hold your breath.
Ambassador Stevens lost his job.
Does Kerry want to make another run? That would be a nice wrinkle...
Come back to work? After being hung out to dry over Benghazi?
The response had BETTER be, ‘FYJK!’
in other words:
“Come back off your paid vacations... it didn’t fool anyone”
It’s fine to come back now. After all, as Carney said, Benghazi was a long time ago.
More bad Kabuki theater by arrogant, lying, venal democrats.
Looking forward to a hillary presidency? Will it be better or worse than the second marxist president?
Were they still getting their gov paycheck for those 8 months like Hasan?
Put up an electrified razor wired double fence around the whole of DC and Chicago.
Start using gov't buildings in DC (and maybe Detroit) that are empty and set those aside for government criminals. It doesn't have to be wretched but there are a lot of government criminals that need to do some time.
Kinda’ like ‘howler monkeys’ (with all due respect to Howler Monkeys).
