Is there anything Hillary Clinton could’ve done to save our fallen soldiers at Benghazi?
While she isn’t mentioned by name in the recent movie, “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” the film portrays a government resistant to sending in reinforcements when our consulate was under attack. While the accuracy of the film has been heavily scrutinized and debated, a new revelation appears to confirm that at least two lives could’ve been saved had action been taken.
As HotAir reported:
Last night Fox News’ Adam Housley interviewed a witness to events that took place on the night of the Benghazi attack who has never spoken to reporters before. “I feel like some things need to come to light,” the source said, his face obscured and his voice altered to protect him from official retribution for speaking out on the issue.
The source claims he was part of an air squadron at Aviano Airbase in Italy that night when they were told there was a situation. He claims planes were readied and were being armed with weapons. “I definitely believe that our aircraft could have taken off and got there in a timely manner, maybe three hours at the most,” the source claims.
A three hour delay would have been long after the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens or Sean Smith, but they might have arrived before a later attack killed Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
But the call for the squadron to move apparently never came. The source says, “They just kept telling me we’re waiting on a call.”
“I still feel a sense of fault for not being there when we were needed. We could have been there and that’s the worst part,” he says.
Here’s a clip from the FOX report:
Hillary infamously asked during the Benghazi hearings, “what difference at this point does it make?” Hopefully enough of a difference to put a further — and irreparable — dent in her poll numbers.
