Will Obama's Cover-up of Sept. 11 Attack in Benghazi Lead to Impeachment?
From the very day of the assault against the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, and the murder there of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, the Obama Administration has engaged in a wild cover-up of the facts. Despite eye-witness accounts, Administration spokesmen and UN Ambassador Susan Rice continued for one full week to insist that the violence was "spontaneous", arising out of a crowd of demonstrators protesting an anti-Muslim film.
Given that President Obama has focused his reelection campaign heavily on his claim to have killed Osama ben Laden and to have fought the terrorist threat “ruthlessly” (including by killing civilians in drone attacks), he was, and is, desperate to prevent the utter failure and irrationality of his regime change policy from coming to the fore.
EIR has documented the many warnings and security incidents in Libya since the Spring of 2012, which should have led to immediate measures (see timeline here: http://larouchepac.com/node/24079). Ambassador Stevens himself had been wary of his trip to Benghazi, as shown in excerpts of his diary reported by CNN.
The Obama Administration, however, had entrusted security there to a private British firm, Blue Mountain, back in the Spring, which provided unarmed guards. While the International Committee of the Red Cross, the United Nations country chief's operations in eastern Libya, and the British government office in Benghazi were all completely closed no later than June 2012, the U.S. facilities and personnel were left without adequate security and continued operating until September 11, 2012.
The Daily Telegraph reported, Sept. 30, that Blue Mountain is under scrutiny over the attack and that the British employee of the firm who managed the unarmed Libyan sub-contractors "left Benghazi shortly after the attack." The London daily reports that "Blue Mountain representative hung up when the Daily Telegraph contacted their headquarters" about the incident.
Hopefully, the cover-up will soon be blown. On Oct. 2, Representatives Darrell Issa and Jason Chaffetz of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform sent a blockbuster open letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, documenting 13 known instances of security attacks against U.S. and other international representatives in Libya, all of which occurred before the Sept. 11 deadly attack. Citing evidence provided by "multiple U.S. federal government officials" (whistleblowers), the letter states that "prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied those resources by officials in Washington."
The two representatives demand a written response to their charges no later than October 8, 2012. One of the points they want explained is certain to cause particular distress in the Obama Administration:
"Weeks before September 11, 2012, Benghazi – The unarmed Libyan guards employed by British contractor Blue Mountain Group were being warned by their family members to quit their jobs guarding Consulate Benghazi because there were rumors in the community of an impending attack."
