Obama-Hillary Clinton rejected military action during Benghazi terrorist attack – Considered it ‘unrealistic’
Here’s another story that the corrupt state run media wouldn’t tell you. It seems that as the 9/11/2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi was occurring, Obama and Hillary Clinton rejected a military option to stop the attackers as ‘unrealistic.’ Instead, they decided to reach out to the Libyan government to ask if they would send reinforcements. This failure by the Obama/Hillary Clinton regime lead to the death of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens, two former Navy Seals, and another American.
Ninety minutes after news of the attack reached Washington, Obama, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, JCS Chair General Martin Dempsey, and a national security adviser convened for an oval office meeting in which they ultimately rejected the course of U.S. military intervention. Instead, they decided to reach out to the Libyan government to ask if they would send reinforcements.
In hindsight, anonymous officials privy to details of those Sept. 11 decisions asked why we didn’t at least send aircraft from the U.S. base in Sicily — which is less than 500 miles away from Benghazi. The line of thinking is that that such a show of force might have given the attackers second thoughts.
