WASHINGTON, August 25, 2013 – The Obama’s Administration cover up of Benghazi has turned a tragic event into an official non-event. Secretary of State John Kerry has reinstated the State Department employees who were demoted following the attack.
Kerry has determined that the four State Department officials placed on administrative leave by Hillary Clinton after the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi do not deserve any formal disciplinary action.
They have been asked back to work at the State Department.
Last December, Clinton’s staff told four mid-level officials to clean out their desks and hand in their badges after the release of the report of its own internal investigation into the Benghazi attack.
Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Raymond Maxwell, the only official from the State Department’s Near Eastern Affairs bureau to lose his job over the Benghazi attack, received a memo from the State Department’s human resources department informing him his administrative leave status has been lifted and he should report for duty Tuesday morning.
While not a formal disciplinary action, Maxwell regarded his treatment as punishment because he was not able to work and was publicly identified as being blamed for the tragedy that cost the lives of four Americans, including his friend Ambassador Chris Stevens.
There was no incompetence in the run up to the attack. There was no need for extra security as requested by the ambassador. There were no warnings of trouble. There was every reason to trust the Islamic militia in charge of “security.”
Now, nearly a year to the date of the attack, not one single person employed by the United States government has been disciplined, fired, or really even criticized for the attack.
This is just another example how disgracefully and incompetently the Obama Administration is performing its job.
