The U.S. House Select Committee on Benghazi released its final report
on Tuesday morning, comprising some 800 pages of investigations and
conclusions that suggest former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and
the Obama administration were derelict in their duty to protect American
diplomats from the most significant terror attack on the U.S. since
Sep. 11, 2001.
The report also details how the Obama administration contrived to misinform the public about the cause of the attack.
The committee had already slammed a separate report Monday by its
Democratic members, who had long maintained that the investigation was
politically motivated. “Benghazi Committee Democrats’ obsession with the
former Secretary of State is on full display. For over two years they
refused to participate in the Majority’s serious, fact-centered
investigation. The dishonest Democrats on this committee falsely claimed
everything had been ‘asked and answered.’ They said the committee had
found ‘absolutely nothing new.’ If that’s changed, they should come
clean and admit it. If not, everyone can ignore their rehashed, partisan
talking points defending their endorsed candidate for president,” an
by the committee declared.
For its own part, the committee published a list of facts that it said were new insights revealed by the investigation:
The Benghazi Lie in Black and White
The administration's public and private timelines of what happened are very different.
The final majority report of the Benghazi Select Committee is
set to be released later Tuesday morning. Representatives Jim Jordan and
Mike Pompeo have signed onto the official majority document and
authored a supplemental, 51-page "additional views" report of their own.
Among the most interesting aspects of their "additional views"
is a timeline that contrasts the story top Obama administration
officials were telling in public with the very different story some of
those same officials were sharing with one another in private emails,
conversations and documents. The timeline reinforces in a compelling way
what will be one of the most significant takeaways from the committee
investigation: The Obama administration knowingly
provided the American people a false story about the Benghazi attack, its causes and its consequences.
