Today’s Benghazi Bombshell: Who Pulled the Security?


Every day, the administration’s ridiculous story about what happened in Benghazi, Libya unravels a little bit more. Sharyl Attkisson hinted yesterday about a big revelation that should have broken this morning. Yesterday, her network hinted that the revelation just might involve Congress.

WASHINGTON – CBS News has learned that congressional investigators have issued a subpoena to a former top security official at the US mission in Libya. The official is Lt. Col. Andy Wood, a Utah National Guard Army Green Beret who headed up a Special Forces “Site Security Team” in Libya.

The subpoena compels Lt. Col. Wood to appear at a House Oversight Committee hearing next week that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 Muslim extremist terror assault on the U.S. compound at Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his colleagues were killed in the attack.

Lt. Col. Wood has told CBS News and congressional investigators that his 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force called a Mobile Security Deployment team left Libya in August, just one month before the Benghazi assault. Wood says that’s despite the fact that US officials in Libya wanted security increased, not decreased.

If this is true, Congress could drop subpoenas on members of the administration up to, and including the Secretary of State, which would be one heck of a bombshell. It will be one thing to get the facts of the incident straight but quite another to get a clear explanation of why things happened they way they did.

Of course, as we’ve seen with the Operation Fast and furious investigation when Attorney General Eric Holder pointedly ignored a Congressional summons, the Obama administration is not all that interested in the “checks and balances” built into our government.

In the meantime, Ben Howe made an excellent video for Heritage that sums up just how deceptive our government has been about the murder of our fellow Americans in Libya, that is worth sharing with everyone you know.

    The administration would claim executive privilege, just as it did with its puppet in the Justice Department over Fast and Furious. The only way to clean up this mess is to start at the top and put them all out of a job.

    I don’t think it is subpoenas that we need, I think it is Indictments for murder, . .for Rice, Clinton, Obama,. . and you know that there are others involved here. Obama’s in denial about the strength of Al Quaida, because he is clueless about what is going on because he is too busy playing golf and campaigning to go to national security meetings and to DO HIS JOB!. . Send him packing, . .he doesn’t have time for US, let him go play golf and quit destroying our country!
