Four Americans were killed in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. A Senate committee has been asking questions about what really took place in the Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attack, and it is very clear now.

Only the president has the authority to send troops across countries' borders. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Gen. Dempsey gave testimony and describe either a cover-up or the failed duties of the commander-in-chief, President Barack Obama. Dempsey’s testimony indicates much of the failed policy fell on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

There was a seven-hour firefight with two Navy Seals killed. No help was sent to help save the lives of the four Americans. Obama had time for fundraising in Las Vegas the following day.

The president, secretary of state and the administration lied for five days straight that the attack in Benghazi was caused by some video. Our national security under attack!
