In the aftermath of the terrorist attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, five State Department Diplomatic Security agents who were in Benghazi that day and survived the attack were evacuated from the country and taken to Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.
All five had suffered from smoke inhalation, and one was seriously wonded.
Under questioning from Sen. Ron Johnson in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed that she has spoken to only one of the survivors who was evacuated from Libya after the Benghazi attack. Presumably, this was on of the five Diplomatic Security officers who was at the mission during the attack.
Clinton also claimed in her back and forth with Sen. Johnson that it would have been inappropriate for her to talk to the surviving State Department officials–who worked for her, and who had valiantly defended the department’s Special Mission Compound in Benghazi against the terrorists–until they had been interrogated by the FBI.
Because Clinton testified that she has only talked to one of the survivors, she could not possibly have even personally thanked–let alone heard the eyewitness accounts of–four of the five Diplomatic Security officers who saw how the Sept. 11 attack unfolded and put their lives on the line to protect Amb. Stevens and the U.S. facility in Benghazi.
