Ambassador Chris Stevens, Dohetry, Woods, and Smith were killed in a terrorist attack on 9/11/12.
On September 11, 2012, the eleventh anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attack in American history, another terrorist attack on American soil occurred. The attack happened under cover of darkness in Benghazi, Libya, a very unstable region of the world. Our consulate was attacked, and four American diplomats were killed, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. It was the first time in about 40 years that a US ambassador had been killed.
With the 20 links below, from a diverse group of 12 different news sources, I hope to demonstrate that 1) the death of four Americans was preventable and unnecessary, 2) the Obama Administration mishandled rescue operations AND Obama was absent in the midst of this crisis, and 3) President Obama himself lied about the details of the attack for approximately 17 days.
Why did the State Department deny Stevens requests for additional security, even to the point of pulling security out in the months leading up to the anniversary of 9/11 in a very unstable region, even while other consulates were given luxuries like smart cars?
Why wasn’t a sufficient amount of help sent in a timely manner to the consulate? Even more troubling: Where was Obama during the attacks? Was he not even curious about how things were going?
If the White House knew that militant groups were responsible for the attacks, why did they blame a YouTube video and “unplanned protest” for at least 17 days?
Mistakes were made before, during, and after the attacks. The families of those who lost their lives, and the American people, deserve answers.
