I was able to stomach bits and pieces of the Hildabeast hearings, but only in a few minute increments. A few very important points came out of the hearing. In the year prior to the attack, Amb. Stevens and his crew forwarded to the State Dept. over 600 requests for increased security. Hillary said she received none and left all security decisions in the hands of “trained professionals.”
That testimony begs several questions: Who made the decisions. Who supervised those persons? What was the basis for not only refusing the requests, but reducing security during the year prior (the answer, as I have been opining since 2013, has to be politics in an election year combined with criminal negligence)? And how is it that Hillary did not deem it important enough to inquire about the security of the Libya mission as public reports of rapidly declining security mounted, Britain pulled out its mission, and the Benghazi mission had at least one dry run attack?
None of the Republicans asked those specific questions. Nor did they ask anything about the risk assessment undertaken a month prior to the attack and forwarded by address to Hillary in which the State Dept. personnel on the ground determined that any sizable attack – precisely what happened a month later – would overrun the compound.
