Tom Fitton and his lawyers and researchers at Judicial Watch are doing us all a great service. Readers should visit JW, sign up for their e-mail alerts and press releases, and drop them a contribution from time to time.
Earlier this week they released a report critical of the Obama Administration on Benghazi and vow to continue to investigate this 9/11 travesty, here.
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released “The Benghazi Attack of September 11, 2012: Analysis and Further Questions from a Diplomatic Security Service Regional Security Officer and Special Agent,” a Special Report closely examining the Obama administration’s actions before, during, and after the assault, as well as the State Department’s commitment to protect overseas diplomats.
The new report contains in-depth analysis, conducted exclusively for Judicial Watch by former State Department Security Special Agent Raymond Fournier, examines the critical time period leading up to the Benghazi attack, when repeated requests for increased security were shunned by top State Department officials. It also examines the Obama administration’s official claim that “an obscure Internet video” triggered the attacks, as well as apparently false claims that four top State Department officials had resigned in response to the Department’s December 18 Accountability Review Board report on the attack. And it raises questions as to the internal problems within the Department that may continue to leave overseas diplomats without adequate security.
“As the [Accountability Review] Board’s report makes clear,” the Judicial Watch Special Report concludes, “the September 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi resulted from a wide range of strategic and tactical failures by State Department officials.
And, this is what Judicial Watch does better than anyone!
Judicial Watch has more than 10 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests pending with various Executive departments and agencies seeking records relating to the Benghazi attack.

Tom Fitton spoke at the MD CAN conference earlier this month (go to the MD CAN website and watch the stellar line-up of presenters).
It makes me laugh when I think of all the furor by the Lefties and CAIR over Pamela Geller at MD CAN, when attendees were able to hear from other great activists working for conservative justice such as Fitton, Diana West, Stanley Kurtz and others! It was a virtual who’s who of freedom fighters on the political right.
