CLINTON AT STATE DEPARTMENT INTERFERED WITH BENGHAZI DEFENSE
Move America Forward Calls for More Transparency
& Investigation in Light of Newly Revealed Information
Sacramento, Calif. – Move America Forward, the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization, called on Congress to launch more investigations into the Benghazi incident and the cover up by the Obama administration, particularly the conduct of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“State Department officials have been coming forward in recent weeks, telling Congress some disturbing details about what could have been done to respond to the terrorist attack on our diplomats in Benghazi. These facts reveal a number of lies told by the administration.” said Danny Gonzalez, Director of Communications for the group.
State Department official Gregory Hicks revealed that U.S. Special Ops forces were told to stand down despite the fact that they were ready to go into Benghazi with time to save Ambassador Chris Stevens and his fellow diplomats. Hicks also revealed that he was instructed by Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills not to cooperate with the investigation led by U.S. Rep. Chaffetz while in Libya.
“This is clear evidence that there was indeed a cover-up, and that Clinton’s office was behind it and attempted to coerce State Department officials into being complicit in the cover-up. The American people should be furious about this.” said Gonzalez.
“Hillary Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on January 23, that there were ‘no delays in decision making, no denials of support from Washington or from our military.’ Telling Special Ops forces not to go save the lives of U.S. Diplomats under fire sounds like a denial of support. So why did Secretary Clinton lie to the Senate during sworn testimony and why did she direct her subordinates to coordinate a cover-up of the whole incident?” asked Gonzalez.
