With Hillary Clinton’s new book set to hit shelves soon, it’s no wonder her name has found its way back into the headlines.
Sure, everyone wants to continue whining about her loss in the 2016 election and talk about her new book, but seemingly no one wants to mention the dandy news in which security officers who survived the Benghazi attack are now coming forward, claiming Hillary attempted to silence them.
Security officers at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi claimed Tuesday that an employee who reported to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pressured them to be quiet about the lack of adequate security just before the 2012 terror attack in Libya.
Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions employees Brad Owens and Jerry Torres told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday evening that they were told not to talk about the government scrambled to improve security at the compound just weeks before the attackThey said the government hired a cut-rate security contractor called the Blue Mountain Group, which entered a bid that was 4 percent lower than the Torres bid.
“Blue Mountain U.K. is a teeny, tiny, little security company registered in Wales that had never had a diplomatic security contract, had never done any high threat contracts anywhere else in the world that we’ve been able to find, much less in high threat areas for the U.S. government. They had a few guys on the ground,” Owens said.
They said Blue Mountain hired unarmed guards through a third company.
And according to Owens, they hired the wrong company for the job. Furthermore, he went on to say that they were silenced by an official close to Clinton herself, suggesting she was culpable for the ultimate tragedy. He concluded by saying:
“Those who made the poor choices that actually, I would say, were more responsible for the Benghazi attacks than anyone else, they’re still in the same positions, making security choices for our embassies overseas now.”
Hmmm. Since the media isn’t talking about this, I wonder if there’s any mention of it in the new book…or if it’s just littered with more whiny excuses about the election results.
Probably the latter since, she hasn’t taken any personal responsibility in the tragedy or the loss…but you never know.
Alright, alright. Who am I kidding? MOST DEFINITELY the latter.
