The Benghazi report is out and it may raise more questions about the attack than it answers. The truth can be interpreted many ways, and even although one can find bits of truths to explain pieces of a puzzle, they don’t tell the whole story. Trey Gowdy, R-SC and chairman of the House Select Committee, advises us to examine the facts presented in the report and decide for ourselves.
One question on the minds of many Americans is whether swift action by the Obama Administration would have saved lives. Obama’s Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, back in 2013, said that nothing would have gotten to Benghazi in time to help save the lives of the four Americans who perished. Although this statement is true, it doesn’t tell the whole story. Nothing would have gotten to Benghazi in time because, as Gowdy pointed out, nothing was heading to Benghazi. The Obama Administration was more concerned with which uniform should be worn by U.S. forces than sending military assets to help repel the attack.
Independent Journal reports:
The House Benghazi Committee’s report is out, and while some in the media are downplaying its findings, what Trey Gowdy announced Tuesday will definitely raise eyebrows.
One particular item of note is whether swift action by the Obama administration could have saved Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, former Navy SEALs working with the CIA in Benghazi.
“The mortar attacks could have taken place at 7:15 a.m. or 9:15 a.m. or even at lunch time on the twelfth. Because at the time those two Americans were killed, not a single wheel of a single U.S. military asset had even turned toward Libya.”
