In Beirut in 1983, a suicide bomber drove a truck full of explosives into a Marine compound, killing 241 of our precious servicemen. Security was terrible. The gate was left wide open. Sentries were ordered to use unloaded weapons. This attack occurred just months after the U.S. embassy in Beirut was already bombed, killing 63 people.
There was ONE congressional investigation, only to find solutions and not to place blame on then President Ronald Reagan or the Secretary of State. They recommended security changes. But the changes weren’t made. Within nine months there were two more successful jihadist attacks. There were no more investigations.
So far, there have been EIGHT investigations into the four American deaths in Benghazi. This is more than the combined total investigations of every major attack on this country in the past 50 years. This includes Beirut, Oklahoma City, embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the USS Cole, the 9/11 attacks and the Boston Marathon bombing. These attacks caused over 4,000 deaths and 11,000 wounded.
All eight investigations showed that there was nothing Clinton could have done to prevent the death of the four Americans.
After taking Congress in 2012, Republicans mounted a continuous smear campaign against Hillary Clinton.
