When it comes to the Benghazi terrorist attack, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should bear most of the blame. She is the one responsible for cuttingsecurity at the compound, refusing the requests for more security, and then hiring a radical Islamic militia to help guard the compound.
After the attack, even while it was still on-going, Hillary was the first to lie about the cause of the attack. She then deliberately continued to lie about the attack being the result of a protest over a video, when she knew right away that it was instead a planned and coordinated terrorist attack.
Now with the formation of the Benghazi Select Committee, which has overwhelmingsupport from the American people, it is looking a little more likely that those responsible for the attack will finally be held accountable. Trey Gowdy, Chair of the Benghazi Committee, has promised to use his subpoena power to question and depose Hillary Clinton, compelling her to testify under oath.
Gowdy’s Benghazi Committee has Hillary Clinton and her team of advisers worried that their coverup will finally fall apart. Now that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has finally appointed five Democrats to fill out the rest of the Benghazi Committee, there is speculation that Clinton’s team may have had a hand in picking those Democrats committee members, in order to help her out during testimony.

Hillary is worried because she knows she’s vulnerable to harsh criticism for her non-action inthe diplomatic compound in Benghazi prior to the attack. She had her own Commission – the Pickering whitewash, that placed the entire blame for the tragedy on a couple of low level State Department flunkies who weren’t even fired – absolve her of any incompetence and wrongdoing.
Now, Congress is going to look at things for real and her team is rightly scared. And unlike the Pickering Commission, Hillary is likely to testify.
As stated before, Hillary Clinton is the one that is most responsible for what happened in Benghazi, and she knows it. Eventually, she will have to come before Trey Gowdy and his committee, and face some tough questioning that will likely break through the coverup and reveal the truth and the lies for what they are.
Hillary Clinton has already lied to Congress in her previous appearance before a committee. For that, she should also be held accountable, and prosecuted for her lies, something any of us would be prosecuted for if we did it.
Once the truth is finally revealed, it should be the stake in the heart of any Presidential aspirations Hillary may still be entertaining. Benghazi is just the latest in a long list of reasons why Hillary Clinton must never become the President of these United States.
