The men that stayed at the embassy in Benghazi and tried to fend off that horrible attack did so knowing that they were probably going to be the only ones that were going to be there.
They called for backup that never arrived. Because of that good people died that didn’t have to if Hillary Clinton gave the go ahead to do something about it. The problem is, Hillary’s hand was in the pocket of those that would wish to do us harm.
She needs to be reminded of that every single day of the week from everyone that can possibly tell her. It’s sickening the way that she has been allowed to walk a free woman after people died under her watch like that. That being the case, she has no right or room to talk about anyone being forgiven for any crime that they might have committed.
There have been recent media reports that President Donald Trump would use his executive power of clemency to issue pardons on behalf of several military members who were facing prosecution or have already been convicted of various “war crimes” alleged to have been committed during service overseas.
Of course, a host of the president’s critics lashed out at the news, accusing him of undermining justice, allowing malevolent criminals to walk free or even of committing war crimes of his own.
One of those who was unsurprisingly critical of the potential pardons was Trump’s failed opponent in the 2016 election, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Clinton’s attempt to cut the president down to size on social media only served to leave herself wide open to harsh criticisms of her own questionable and disgraceful actions in the past.
Linking to a New York Times article about the possible military pardons, Clinton tweeted, “This is grotesque.”
No. What was really “grotesque” was how then-Secretary Clinton had handled the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the deaths of four American citizens — Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
Whether it be her refusal to grant additional security following repeated requests prior to the attack or the fact that no real reinforcements or rescue effort was launched during the hours-long attack on a diplomatic facility the field of justifiable critiques was ripe for harvest.
With all of that in mind, one of the heroes from the Benghazi terrorist attack — former military combat veteran turned private security contractor Mark Geist — tweeted his own criticism of Clinton’s “grotesque” tweet.
“And to think, had you done your job I wouldn’t have had to testify in Federal court today in the trial of Mustafa Al-imam,” he wrote. “But I’m guessing you have zero clue as to who he is. Let me remind you. He is accused of being involved in the deaths of 4 Americans #Benghazi #13hours”
