Disclosed: Email Shows Pentagon Offered ‘Forces that Could Move to Benghazi’ Immediately

Newly released emails show that a senior Defense Department official offered the State Department “forces that could move to Benghazi” immediately during the deadly 2012 attack there on the American consulate.

Jeremy Bash, the former Pentagon chief of staff, offered to provide forces at 7:19 p.m. on the evening of the attack, “only hours after they had begun,” according to Judicial Watch, which disclosed the email on Tuesday.

“We have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak,” Bash wrote.

    A bunch of army guys with big mouths likely plunking down in the middle of an isis – CIA convention gone bananas? Said shindig possibly being fronted by the Turks and Madam Secretary’s proxy? That doesn’t feel like good headlines.

    Madame Secretary is a traitor. She should be hanged.

    Meanwhile back at the whitehut and state department, they
    were doing their own ‘spinning’. This whole episode was something criminal. Literally.

    Why does this remind me of the fireworks store scene from the Naked Gun movie, but with Hillary Clinton pushing through the gawking US Military Forces watching the Benghazi explosions saying, “Alright, move on. Nothing to see here”
