BOOM: House Benghazi Committee To Review ‘Secret’ Libyan Tapes. Watch Out Hillary!
The Democratic heir apparent, Hillary Clinton, may find the road to her party’s coronation in 2016 a bumpy one as new "Secret Libyan" tapes have surfaced, which points to a much larger role being played by the former Secretary of State in the instigating the 2011 Libyan War that unseated Bedouin strongman, Moammar Gadhafi.
Evidence may suggest that Clinton ginned up reports to suggest that Gadhafi was on the verge of unleashing a genocidal attacks against women and children as rationale for the administration’s propensity for jumping into the Libyan Civil War without a complete understanding of the situation on the ground in that North African country.
Washington Times Breaks Story
According to a Washington Times article, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) decision to explore the damning evidence opens up a Pandora’s Box of information that the former Secretary might wish to keep concealed as her own presidential ambitions begin to ramp up in anticipation of a possible 2016 run for the White House.
The new evidence suggests that neither the Pentagon, nor Ohio Democratic Congressman, Dennis Kucinich, mistrusted the information coming out of Clinton’s State Department, so they opened up their own diplomatic to Gadhafi.
That move not only illustrated the polarizing relationship between the Department of Defense and Foggy Bottom, but it also throws into question Clinton’s stewardship during the conflict.
Gowdy, the new Chairman of the special House Committee, created to investigate the near-criminal Obama Administration’s response to the 2012 killing of then-Ambassador John Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya attack, announced that these new revelations warrant re-looking at Clinton’s botched role in the Benghazi tragedy.
At least one potential Republican presidential aspirant, Rand Paul (R-KY), threw a damning accusation against the former 2008 Democratic presidential contender, and his potential 2016 rival:
"Hillary’s judgment has to be question—her eagerness for war in Libya should preclude her from being considered the next Commander-in-Chief," said the Libertarian-leaning Republic senator from Kentucky.
