On Sept. 11, 2012 our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was attacked by Islamic terrorists. There was no Marine guard.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens e-mailed at 4:05 p.m. to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, responsible for all our embassies, and to President Barack Obama.
Live video and audio were sent to Washington so they knew within an hour what happened.
Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met at 5 p.m. After this, nothing was heard from the president that night though the defenders fought bravely for eight hours.
There was a special rescue team in Italy that could have been in Benghazi in two hours. Obama never gave them the order to start.
Ambassador Stevens and three agents died defending our territory.
Obama, Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice lied to us about the attack, calling it a riot caused by an anti -Islamic video.
In a congressional hearing, Clinton stated we have four dead Americans, but as to why, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
