Former head of a Special Forces in Libya Lt. Col. Andy Wood asked State Department for more security – ignored (Video)
Here’s a surprise, CBS actually reporting on more news that shows blood on the hands of Obama and Hillary Clinton. Here’s a non-surprise. Former head of a Special Forces in Libya Lt. Col. Andy Wood asked State Department for more security in Libya as concerns continued to grow after the State Department removed as many as 34 people from the country over the last six months before the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Lt. Col. Andy West’s requests (much like Amb. Stevens) were ignored or denied.
Lt. Col. Andy Wood will appear this week at a House Oversight Committee hearing that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.
Speaking to CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, Wood said when he found out that his own 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force were being pulled from Tripoli in August – about a month before the assault in Benghazi – he felt, “like we were being asked to play the piano with two fingers. There was concern amongst the entire embassy staff.”
