State Department Identifies Benghazi Emails

Remember when Clinton swore under oath that she had handed over all of her work-related emails? Yeah, I do too.

The State Department says about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI’s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta on Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department’s lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

Mehta questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents and urged that the process be sped up. He ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.

OMG! What Should We Wear to the Terrorist Attack!?!?

No fault on these Marines who were following the orders of incompetent idiots who were more concerned about appearances than saving the lives of Americans under attack.

New details in a report released Tuesday by the House select committee investigating the deadly Benghazi attack showed that senior State Department officials debated whether responding with U.S. Marines in uniform would appear to be an invasion.

Marines ordered to rescue Americans under siege at a diplomatic compound were told to change in and out of uniform four times as officials debated.

“We were told multiple times to change what we were wearing, to change from cammies into civilian attire, civilian attire into cammies, cammies into civilian attire,” the commander of a Marine Fleet Anti-Terrorist Security Team (FAST) platoon testified to the committee, referring to camouflage fatigues.

“There was also some talk of whether or not we could carry our personal weapons,” he added.

House Calls for Clinton to Testify

This took long enough. Of course, given that she’s an accomplished liar and nobody is willing to prosecute her for anything, I doubt anything will come of it.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of a House committee investigating the 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on Thursday called Hillary Rodham Clinton to testify at a public hearing next month, setting up a high-profile showdown over the Democratic presidential candidate’s use of a private email account and server while she was secretary of state.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said he wants Clinton to testify the week of May 18 and again before June 18. The first hearing would focus on Clinton’s use of private emails, and the second on the September 2012 attacks that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
