More than six months since Ambassador Christopher Stevens was assassinated by terrorists in Benghazi, the Obama administration is still trying to keep a lid on information about the attack.
Congress and the American people need to know what happened the night of Sept. 11, 2012. Who did the killing and what was their motive? Why wasn’t help sent? And why did the administration lie about who was responsible?
Members of Congress have asked hundreds of questions at hearings conducted by several investigative committees, but many of the most significant have been left unanswered.
Information detailing what happened before, during and after the attack on the Benghazi consulate has been kept from the American people.
The identities of those Americans who were there, including those who were wounded, has been kept from congressional investigators who have a constitutional responsibility to oversee U.S. foreign policy in situations exactly like this. Besides the ambassador, three other Americans died in the terrorist assault.
President Barack Obama and his entourage appear to believe there is nothing wrong with presenting false information to the American people. At a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared in an agitated tone that it didn’t matter what had been said about the attack in the days after it took place.
For more than a week, high-level officials had deliberately misinformed the American people about the circumstance surrounding the deadly attack launched on the anniversary of 9/11.
