A new email has been released due to a FIOA request from Judicial Watch showing that U.S. military forces were ready to go to Benghazi, Libya and help our people there. The email was from Jeremy Bash, the then Chief of Staff of the Department of Defense. Bash′s email informed the State Department that the DoD had ″we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.″ on the night of September 11, 2012. The email had been sent to several top State Department officials at about 7:19pm Eastern. Bash told them in his email that troops from Italy were standing by to go and required the State Department to contact the Libyan government so our transport planes would not be fired upon. This email disproves what Obama administration officials, including Hillary Clinton, have been saying for the past 3 years. That no military forces were available which could assist our consulate staff in Benghazi.
So, for the past 3 years and change, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other administration officials, have been lying to us all that there was nothing that could have been done in Benghazi. The Bash email shows that the White House and the State Department had lied. We did have troops ready to go to help. The time of the email is still within the period when we knew that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was still alive. It was also well before the second attack on the CIA mission in Benghazi where two other Americans, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were killed. Even the fourth American killed, Sean Smith, may still have been alive at the time the email was sent.
The email from Jeremy Bash had been suppressed by the Obama administration and it took the Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch to force a federal judge to order its release. This email proves that Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and many other government officials lied to Congress when they said that no military help was available. According to the Bash email, we did indeed have troops in Italy which were already ″spinning up″ to fly to Benghazi, Libya. Those troops could have arrived in time to help protect the CIA mission when it came under attack. They may have even been able to secure Ambassador Christopher Stevens before his demise. As usual, the Liberal Media is ignoring the story. They know all too well that Benghazi hangs around the necks of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for their numerous lies and possible criminal cover-up.
