Via Walid Shoebat, a self-proclaimed former Muslim Brotherhood Member turned Peace Activist:
Upon release of the Accountability Review Board’s (ARB) report on what happened in Benghazi, it was learned that the group singled out no individuals for discipline – the bureaucracy itself was identified as the party most responsible. There were, however, four State Department employees who reportedly resigned in the wake of the report.
Aside from the fact that none of the four individuals who allegedly ‘resigned’ were individuals who claimed to accept responsibility (Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton), it appears they haven’t really resigned at all.
He’s referencing an article from the NY Post:
The four officials supposedly out of jobs because of their blunders in the run-up to the deadly Benghazi terror attack remain on the State Department payroll — and will all be back to work soon, The Post has learned.
The highest-ranking official caught up in the scandal, Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, has not “resigned” from government service, as officials said last week. He is just switching desks. And the other three are simply on administrative leave and are expected back.
The four were made out to be sacrificial lambs in the wake of a scathing report issued last week that found that the US compound in Benghazi, Libya, was left vulnerable to attack because of “grossly inadequate” security.
State Department leaders “ didn’t come clean about Benghazi and now they’re not coming clean about these staff changes,” a source close to the situation told The Post., adding, the “public would be outraged over this.”
To which he concludes:
Earlier this month, Jay Carney took a question from Ed Henry – shortly after the release of the ARB report – about the four individuals “taking the fall”. Four Americans dead as a direct result of decisions made by some of these individuals and the only discipline is reassignment?!
Perhaps a better case of ‘thou doth protest too much’ one would be hard-pressed to find. In reality, it doesn’t appear that anyone has either taken the fall or been held accountable, at least not in any way proportional to the consequences of their actions / inaction.
