The House Armed Services Committee released an interim report today (full report here). Bridget Johnson at PJ Media posted an outline of the highlights from this report (her article here). Did you know the Obama administration saw fit to upgrade embassy security in Yemen prior to 9/11 in 2012, but didn’t bother with upgrading security in Libya? Leon Panetta visited Libya with General Ham in December 2011 and noted:
Although General Ham cautioned that he was not speaking for Secretary Panetta, he recounted to the committee that it was his impression that the secretary shared the general’s sense that a weakening Libyan government was a “dangerous development” which “created opportunities for Al Qaeda and other Islamic extremist organizations to, in some cases, reinsert themselves or operatives into Libya.”
Each additional report on Benghazi raises more questions, not only on the inept Obama administration, but as to what the true state of our military readiness is to respond quickly in a crisis.
