Benghazi is Back in The News For This HORRIBLE Reason
The chaos left in the wake of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s disastrous decision-making in Libya continues to take a deadly toll on Libyans as fighting between a shaky government and an Islamist alliance with more casualties this week in a city most Americans recognize as the place where a U.S. ambassador was left to die.
Security forces in Benghazi were the target of a car bomb placed by the Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries, which includes Ansar al-Sharia, the terror group linked to al-Qaeda.
The deadly blast leveled a three-story building, trapping soldiers in the rubble, destroying at least ten vehicles, killing 22 people and injuring 20 more, including four field commanders of the government.
The Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries took responsibility for the attack, but claimed 28 had been killed and 70 injured.
The bombing, which took place in a residential area, is the fourth in Benghazi in the past week as the Libyan National Army’s campaign continues to fight for control of the city.
The car bombing followed a suicide attack by ISIS in the same area that killed at least three and left another 25 injured.
Violence in Benghazi continues four years after a premeditated assault on the U.S. consulate on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington D.C. at the height of the re-election campaign of President Obama.
The administration misrepresented the nature of that attack that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the first to be killed since 1979 with claims by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as the president and their spokespersons, that the attack grew from a protest about a YouTube video continue to haunt Clinton in her campaign for the presidency.
A recently released email from Mrs. Clinton to her daughter confirmed that she knew the assault on the consulate was a terror attack even as it unfolded, and additional emails and phone logs prove that she shared that information with the Egyptian Prime Minister and Libyan president just hours after it began.
A U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer and two CIA operatives were also lost in the attack.
