The Benghazi attack has been been a thorn in the side of the Obama White House ever since Sept. 11, 2012. However, many questions still remain as no one has seemingly been held accountable for the deaths of four American heroes.
In the wake of the Benghazi hearings that took place Wednesday, Glenn Beck compared key aspects of the day’s testimony with statements and actions made by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Obama and others at the time the events were first unfolding.
Beck noted that America’s policy is not to stand against terror, but rather to stand specifically against al-Qaeda, as that, too is Saudi Arabia’s policy. This means that militant Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood which spearheaded the Arab Spring, are overlooked.
The problem is that the Muslim Brotherhood is the grandfather of all Islamic jihadist groups.
Meanwhile, there is speculation abound that Ambassador Chris Stevens was the point-man in a U.S.-led gun-running scheme to arm militants seeking to overthrow Gaddhafi.
Those very militants armed by the U.S., we now know, were al-Qaeda operatives — the same perpetrators of the carnage at the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi.
All the while, the former Secretary of State failed to send assistance to the Americans abroad in Libya even after it was requested repeatedly, a congressional panel found.
Thus, the plot thickens.
Saudi Arabia asked the U.S. to support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
“Why again are we in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood?” Beck asked. “Saudi Arabia.”
Only a scant few lawmakers have spoken out in this time against The case of Benghazi, Beck noted, goes deeper than politics. Rather, “it’s all about ideology.”
So, following Wednesday’s hearings, whose stories should Americans believe?
Comparing side by side, Beck noted that the administration stopped the military from intervening to save Ambassador Stevens and the other Americans in jeopardy.
Whistleblowers at Wednesday’s hearings included Gregory Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya, Mark Thompson acting deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism at the U.S. State Department, and Eric Nordstrom, a security officer in Libya.
In response to Hillary Clinton’s assessment that the YouTube video was to blame for the onslaught, Hicks said that he was “stunned.”
“My jaw dropped. I was embarrassed,” he added.
Comparing side-by-side even further Beck began with Clinton’s most infamous statement to date:
“We have four dead Americans,” Clinton said at a previous hearing. “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Nordstrom, choked up with emotion, responded at Wednesday’s hearings in kind:
“It matters. It matters to me personally, and it matters to my colleagues at the Department of State,” he began.
“It matters to the American public for whom we serve. And most importantly, it matters to the friends and family of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glenn Doherty, Tyrone Woods who were murdered on September 11, 2012.”
In yet another comparison Beck noted that just last week, the White House said that no agency had been blocked from speaking with members of Congress about the Benghazi attacks.
Hicks, however, said that he was “instructed not to allow the RSO, the acting deputy chief of mission and myself to be personally interviewed by Congressman Chaffetz.”
“Who do you believe?” Beck asked.
Watch below as Beck delivers a compelling side-by-side comparison of those who testified and members of the Obama administration:
Again, “who do you believe?”
