Another day, another one of my Benghazi Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests has been denied — this time from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). As previously reported, the CIA also denied my Benghazi FOIA request.
Recall it was on September 11, 2012 when Ambassador Christopher Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were murdered by terrorists. President Barack Obama with then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice, former CIA chief, the ‘celebrated,’ philandering General David Petraeus, the brains behind the failed counter-insurgency policy called COIN in Afghanistan that is maiming and killing U.S. and NATO troops to win “hearts and minds” that cannot be won, lied to the public when they blamed the murder of four Americans on an anti-Muslim Youtube video.
As the New York Times reported, Woods and Doherty worked under contract with the CIA.
Thus far justice for these American remains elusive. No one has been held accountable. We still don’t know who ordered the “stand down” order to not help these Americans in peril. We still do not know what the Ambassador was doing in Benghazi and who changed the administration’s talking points to deceive Americans.
And the reason for my FBI FOIA request denial? To not hinder a “pending or prospective” investigation.
