Skip to comments.At Benghazi Trial, Harrowing Testimony and Clashing Views of a Defendant
Posted on 10/06/2017 8:49:43 AM PDT by jaydubya2
It seemed clear that they were all about to die, Mr. Wickland testified Monday, the first day of the trial of Ahmed Abu Khattala, who is accused of helping orchestrate the attacks. Then the attackers left, but moments later, thick black smoke from a fire they had set started to pour in. Mr. Wickland told the others to follow him as they crawled to a bathroom window, but he lost them in the choking blackness.
To this day, I dont even know where they went, he said. I was right next to them, and then thats it.
Four Americans died in the attacks. Mr. Stevens and Mr. Smith died from smoke inhalation in the burning building at the mission. Hours later, two Central Intelligence Agency operatives, Glen A. Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods, were killed by mortar fire at a nearby C.I.A. annex.
The men were killed, Mr. Crabb said, because they were Americans.
And that man right there, he continued and pointed to Mr. Khattala, hates Americans with a vengeance.

...or in the Enemy Media! Thanks for posting.
You’re correct Diana. I heard a mention of it on a talk show yesterday. Not a peep from the MSM.
Four Americans were murdered
Millions of dollars stolen
Missing missiles and other heavy duty weapons missing
And the people and 'perps' responsible are still walking the streets
One poor schmuck arrested and currently being tried
and all the news media conveniently overlooks the trial
and you expect me to believe that the "DEEP STATE" doesn't really exist ?
You didn’t mention the State Department guy who covered up Hillary’s Benghazi actions is about to be appointed ambassador to Columbia by President Trump. Joseph MacManus.
Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.
I was also unaware of this trial until I saw this article.
I’m still waiting for SOMEONE to INSIST on the whereabouts of the President and Secretary of State while the attack was happening.
Why is ALL of DC accepting that: “they retired for the evening...”
-at 4 or 5 PM????
Sorry but this STINKS to high heaven on BOTH sides of the aisle.
Does anyone have any idea what exactly Amb Chris Stevens and the other three were doing in a place that every other free world representative had already fled because of the danger?
If the REAL truth from Benghazi comes to the surface, the DNC and some Rinos will be eliminated for good !!!
ALL come back to the evil witch killary !!!
Stevens wasn’t even allowed to do his usual run that day because it was determined too dangerous to leave the compound.
George Webb was at the court - his reports start here -
apparently they showed many clips from 20+ security cameras that disproved some testimony - we demand to see all the films.
and yes, HRC and BHO, where were you and what did you do?
They should be subpoened.
The latest State Department Friday FOIA Dumped multiple Clinton documents---Amb Stevens in Benghazi begged for help but was told that Hillary's State Department said there were no additional security forces that could be sent to help the trapped Americans.
She's such a dam frickin' phony. Look at her feigning sorrow as the bodies arrive in America.
"I wish this Black idiot would stop talking. I have to think.
" Yikes, four bodies? I better act presidential or I can forget 2016."
"Oh, I got it...I'll use Bill's old reliable ruse.....I'll blame it on Republicans."
It exists and the vivid lessons we have learned since Trump was nominated cannot be denied.
The Clintons aren't alone in thumbing their noses at the law. But they (especially Hillary) , as pointed out by James Comey; violated security law, sold influence as a sitting cabinet member, lied under oath, obstructed justice, destroyed evidence, embezzled private campaign funds to pay computer hackers to hide evidence under subpoena and payed campaign staffers with government funds. More than just excusing her conduct, Comey has exposed a deep down line of corruption that would lead to dozens of indictments if this were a corporate entity, a criminal enterprise or republican representative.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions who many hoped would be a strong voice for justice is as moot on the point as any who came before him. I believe the reason there will no prosecutions of anyone involved, including Debbie Wassermann Schultz, is that the corruption in our government, in the K Street lobbyist community and in the media runs so deep that if a serious investigation was begun and anyone started singing to save their skin the resulting exposure of and could end up putting half of D.C. in jail.
No one in either party will dare start that snowball rolling. Trump (I think) knows this and is looking for the right person to keep the secrets buried rather than open the flood gates and drain the swamp for real.
