Benghazi-exposedThe Citizens’ Commission On Benghazi report has been released to Bear Witness Central for publishing today, 6/28/16.  The Commission will unveil the report and have its press conference at the National Press Club tomorrow in Washington DC.  The full report can be read below.

In summary, the Obama administration deliberately withheld urgently-requested security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi for the benefit of the president’s re-election campaign in 2012.  The President, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and others in the Administration must answer for their coverup and dereliction of duty, a criminal offense under the United States Code.

Why was the Citizens’ Commission On Benghazi formed?  The report answers this question as follows:

All who take the oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic” accept the solemn duty and professional responsibility to know who the enemy is and to confront and defeat that enemy. The failure of senior officials of the U.S. government, especially within the top ranks of national security, forthrightly to name—or make any serious attempt to defend against or take the fight to—the Islamic terrorist enemy who attacked our mission in Benghazi, murdered four Americans and grievously injured others, is nothing less than dereliction of duty and a betrayal of that oath. That enemy includes all who support the Global Jihad Movement. Those forces remain on the attack against the United States, our allies, and the entire free world and will not stop until decisively defeated. That defeat can only be delivered by free people, committed to the eternal vigilance that Thomas Jefferson reminded us is the price of liberty.

The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi formed in 2013 with the rueful conclusion that the Obama administration, Congressional Committees and even the Select Committee on Benghazi would never tell the full story of the 11 September 2012 Benghazi attack to the American people. We owe it to the fallen, the injured, their families and the American people to explain what happened and why. This must be done not just with another timeline narration, but with a full explanation of how our leadership failed in its duty to name and confront the Islamic jihadist enemy, failed to take the steps necessary to protect our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, failed to so much as attempt to come to the rescue of those beleaguered Americans that night, and failed to tell the truth about what happened afterward. American citizens deserve to know what happened that night, before, afterward, and why so that they might hold accountable those responsible for nothing less than a catastrophic betrayal of fundamental American principles. We hope this report will contribute to that mission.
