“We couldn’t even keep what we had”
“We were fighting a losing battle. We couldn’t even keep what we had.”
“I was told that we’d only get ground power in the aftermath of a disaster.”
Those two statements from the officers who had been begging and pleading for months for additional security and were denied, denied, denied … that says it all about how the State Department and the Obama Administration handled the Benghazi embassy before true disaster did indeed strike. Disaster that was foreseen and completely avoidable. Disaster that resulted in the deaths of 4 innocent and heroic people — because they knew the danger they were operating under and knew that pleas for help had fallen on more than deaf ears, yet still they stayed to do their duty. And it makes me feel physically sick.
