According to a report released Wednesday by a citizens group led by former military and intelligence officials, Hillary Clinton is guilty of “dereliction of duty” for her actions before, during and after the terrorist attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.
Not surprisingly, the only people who find no fault in Hillary’s actions during the Benghazi consulate attack are Democrats and her liberal followers.
According to WND, the Citizens’ Committee on Benghazi, CCB, released its final report on Wednesday at the National Press Club in Washington.
Leadoff speaker Clare Lopez, vice president for research and analysis at the Center for Security Policy, criticized U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, for not holding Clinton and the State Department under her direction responsible for the Benghazi attack.
Lopez said Clinton “wielded cross-border authority as the terrorist attack in Benghazi unfolded.”
“Why didn’t she request the deployment of U.S. military resources that stood ready to launch a rescue mission the CCB concluded we now know could have reached Benghazi in time to thwart the attack and save American lives?”
Lopez charged Clinton’s role in the Benghazi debacle was “pivotal.”
She said that under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department “changed sides” in the war on terrorism in Libya.
“Secretary Clinton knowing undertook a foreign policy to abet and assist the Muslim Brotherhood, a direct enemy of the United States in the Middle East, to come to power across Northern Africa and in particular in Libya,” Lopez said.
Clinton instructed the State Department “to abandon Moammar Gadhafi, an ally of the United States who had given up his terrorist ambitions, deciding to change sides, implementing a policy to facilitate the deliver of weapons to the al-Qaida-dominated rebel militia seeking to oust Gadhafi from power.”
“That was the origin of the terrorist attack in Benghazi.”
Gowdy ‘copped out’
Retired Adm. James “Ace” Lyons joined in the attack on the House Select Committee on Benghazi, contending that Gowdy “copped out.”
“Gowdy was there as chairman of the select committee with the charge to find out who was responsible, and he failed to do so,” Lyons said.
