Republicans released their final Benghazi report today and it was full of plenty of reasons why Hillary Clinton should never be president.
There were many shocking details in the report such as the confirmation that Hillary misled the American people about the YouTube video.
However, there was another bombshell that is getting attention and it might be the most despicable yet.
For some reason, the Obama administration was having a debate over apparel while Americans were fighting for their lives in Benghazi, Libya. Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), a member of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, revealed as much to radio host Hugh Hewitt Tuesday morning before the committee released its final report.
Combat Marines were ordered in and out of uniform four times before finally launching their rescue effort, Pompeo explained. Apparently the State Department was worried about optics.
“The State Department didn’t want it to look like it was an invasion of Libya,” he said. “They were hypersensitive to looking like there were Americans coming into Libya when this was truly a terrorist haven. Somehow, they had this idea that a big American force in uniform would present some risk that the Libyans would protest, because we were invading their country. In fact, the military folks knew that that wasn’t going to help keep our soldiers safe. And there was this debate back and forth about what the appropriate attire was for going to rescue Americans while our embassy was burning and mortars were falling in Benghazi.”
Can you imagine what the families of the dead Americans would say about this?
