Once again, President Barack Obama claims he first discovered a potential political firestorm involving his administration from what he’s read and heard in news reports. This time he was making that shopworn claim regarding evidence that his former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton used a private, non- governmental email account that would include communications about the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012, according to his interview on CBS News on Saturday.
During that interview Obama claimed that he’s delighted that Clinton has requested those emails about her interactions during and after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi be disclosed. Obama also showed another example of his chutzpah when he reiterated that his administration remains “the most transparent administration ever, said several current and former police officers, as well as former military special forces operative.
What many believe is going to hurt Obama and his White House the most is that the story about Clinton’s emails and lack of transparency will be what investigators manage to uncover. The recent New York Times report that opened Hillary’s can-of-worms is actually old news that was known for at least two years. Anyone receiving an email from Hillary could tell she was using a private Internet server and that she never used the Department of State’s official email account.
“Perhaps by some stroke of investigative luck or genius the Benghazi-related emails are discovered and show exactly what happened with [President] Obama after his last discussion with then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. Did he just go to bed for the night? Did he contact his Secretary of State while her subordinates were being mutilated and killed in the Islamic hellhole in Libya?” asks former military special forces and civilian police commander Thomas Roche.
In addition, The father of the former Navy SEAL who was savagely murdered in the Benghazi terrorist attack told a public-interest group investigating and exposing Mrs. Clinton’s alleged cover-up that he wasn’t surprised to learn that State Department documents — obtained last week by Judicial Watch — had revealed that Hillary Clinton’s top aides knew from the very beginning that the U.S. diplomatic mission attacked by Islamic terrorists. “She knew damn well this wasn’t some out-of-control protestors who were upset over a video that denigrates Islam,” said former police detective and Marine intelligence officer Jonathan Grimaldi.
During an interview this week, Charles Woods, the father of the late Ty Woods, the Navy SEAL who provided protection for U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, complained about the frustration he felt over the countinued lies and deceit that surfaced during the politically-motivated cover-up of the attack on the U.S. Special Mission in Libya. A supposed Hillary friend, Ambassador Chris Stevens, became the first diplomat to be killed overseas in decades, and three other Americans, including Ty Woods, were murdered in the violent ambush.
According to the leader of the investigation, Tom Fitton, “Judicial Watch has gone to court and managed to obtain droves of government records that prove the administration knew from the outset that it was never a spontaneous demonstration against an internet video but rather an attack by armed assailants tied to a terrorist group. The latest batch of State Department documents obtained by [Judicial Watch] last week make no reference to a spontaneous demonstration or Internet video, except in an official statement issued to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
Ty Woods’ father, Charles Woods, who is a retired judge and attorney, told Judicial Watch that he’s fed-up with the lies surrounding his son Ty’s killing. During a funeral service for his murdered son, Woods told Judicial Watch that Hillary Clinton looked directly into his eyes claimed the video led to the protest that led to his son’s death “She said ‘we’re going to have the person responsible for that video arrested,’” Charles Woods said. “I knew she was lying. Her body language, the look in her eyes….I could tell she wasn’t telling the truth.”
