House Report Blames Obama and Hillary Clinton Are To Blame for Their Unforgivable Response on Benghazi For Cutting Security at Benghazi Consulate

White House Officials Altered Benghazi Talking Points To Protect Hillary Clinton For Approving Reduced Security

House Report Blames Hillary For Cutting Security at Benghazi Consulate

The Washington Times

The White House lied, Americans died.

A House report released today blames Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for cutting security at the Benghazi Consulate before the 9-11 attack. The report also blames the Obama Administration for lying about the attack afterward.

House Republicans have concluded that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was responsible for cutting security at the consulate in Benghazi ahead of last year’s attack there, and that the administration lied about why it downplayed terrorism as the cause of the assault.

A new report — the result of months of investigation by five different House committees — says there was plenty of intelligence that presaged the attack, but the State Department and President Obama failed to heed the warnings or give the Defense Department the authority to respond to such an attack.

The report exonerates the Pentagon itself, saying the military did what it could to respond once the attack began, but “was hindered on account of U.S. military forces not being properly postured” beforehand.

In the most damning finding, House Republicans said Mr. Obama and his team lied about the attacks afterward, first by blaming mob violence spawned by an anti-Muslim video, and then wrongly saying it had misled the public because it was trying to protect an FBI investigation.

“This progress report reveals a fundamental lack of understanding at the highest levels of the State Department as to the dangers presented in Benghazi, Libya, as well as a concerted attempt to insulate the Department of State from blame following the terrorist attacks,” the GOP investigation concluded in its 46-page report.

The Obama administration has acknowledged providing an inaccurate explanation for the attacks early on — even though officials at the Defense Department said they knew it was a terrorist assault from the beginning.

House issues Benghazi report

A critical report (attached below) drafted by five GOP-led House committees has determined that reduced security in Benghazi in the days leading up to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack were approved by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The report also found that White House and high-ranking officials at the State Department changed CIA talking points following the attacks, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, in order to shield the State Department from “criticism for inadequate security levels,” on the ground in Benghazi.

The 46-page report provides a timeline of events leading up to the attacks in Benghazi and investigation that followed.

Obama and Hillary both have blood on their hands. I wish with all my heart they would be punished for what they did.

Obama lied? That's nothing new. He's been lying since he was elected to the Senate.

My hope, at the minimum, is that this report gets legs and kills Hillary's chances for a presidential bid.
