Benghazi– The Way it Should Have Been

Help-deniedOn March 31, 2004, Iraqi insurgents ambushed a convoy of American military contractors.  The insurgents threw hand grenades into their SUV, shot them to death with machine guns, burned their bodies and drug them through the streets, and finally hung them from a bridge for the world to see.

America didn’t miss a beat, and nobody had to wonder where our President or the Secretary of State were at the time.   

Within 24 hours, on April 1, Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt promised an “overwhelming response.”  On April 4, American forces launched a major assault by encircling Fallujah with more than 2,000 troops.  By April 5, American units headed by 1st Marine Expeditionary Force blockaded the roads with Humvees and concertina wire.  When it was over, the American flag was flying proudly.  There is far more to report on this heroic event, but the point is:  This is what America does; we do not abandon our citizens who are serving our country on foreign soil.  We do not turn away their requests for additional security and their pleas for immediate help as they are being slaughtered by terrorists.

During her campaign for President in 2008, Hillary Clinton asked us who we wanted answering “the 3 A.M. call in the White House.”   As we all know, she demonstrated the answer to that question in real time.   She deserves to be prosecuted, and never, ever must she be our President.

The terrorist attack in Benghazi took place during daytime hours in America over the course of at least 6 hours.  It was seen in real time by our Administration, yet they ignored it and then denied it for their own political purposes.   Four brave Americans killed by terrorists while they begged for help and believed that reinforcement was on the way.  Even now the families of those courageous men still have no answers; only lies from our Administration.  This is absolutely criminal.

Again here I am asking our Congressmen:  Where are you?  Why are we/you tolerating this?  I am certain that the families of Ambassador Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith have no interest in your committees, to-do lists, or protocol; instead they and we expect you to stand up and hold the President and his Administration accountable.  Anything less is un-American.
