Judicial Watch releases report and will not let Hillary and Obama off Benghazi hook

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.

All of our previous posts on Benghazi are here.

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.


  1. I hope Judicial Watch stays on this like a hound dog on a muskrat, if hound dogs actually hunt muskrats. Anyway, Hillary’s appearance before Congress was, in my judgement, nothing more than a bunch of tip-toeing and toe dancing; Congress, and America got no answers, just more avoidance.
    However, she did accept responsiblilty as she is walking away from the job, and I suspect that the Obama administration is hoping that that her resignation will put an end to the matter, after all, she took responsibility ya know.

    I’m pretty sure that Hillary was receiving her marching orders from someone and I hope that Judicial Watch will stay on it and find out exactly who that was.

    I do not believe that this story is going to go away, at least, I hope it doesn’t.

    • Greg, I agree. It is an outrage, not only what happened in Benghazi itself but the cover-up by Hillary. It makes me crazy to think she might be President someday.

  2. Second that on Hillary as President. She appointed her “friend” Chris Stevens as Ambassador and sent him over there, only to abandon him when he and others desperately needed help, and then proceeded to lie about what happened (even as caskets were being paraded by) to the family and the American people. I keep thinking of the picture of George W. Bush with his mischievous smile, saying “Miss me yet?” Boy, do I ever.
