More Deception at the White House: Benghazi 'Officials' Who Were Fired Actually Weren't

The families of the four Americans who were killed in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 still don't have answers to all of their questions as to how it was possible for our government to have left one of its diplomats so under-protected and exposed in a known hostile environment.

To add insult to injury, now they and the rest of the country are discovering that those who were supposedly "punished" for their lapses in duty weren't really "punished" at all.

In fact, The New York Post reported exclusively the day after Christmas, "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."
U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack, which the White House and other administration officials initially blamed on a spontaneous demonstration sparked by a U.S.-produced anti-Islam video that was actually made seven months earlier. The Obama administration said the demonstration got out of hand, leading to violence that left the four Americans dead and the embassy aflame.

But that version of events was dismissed by an Accountability Review Board headed up by retired Ambassador Thomas Pickering.

The White House has been lying about this event from the very start. Mike Rivero at thinks that this event, that occurred before the US election, was intended to be a kidnapping, and it turned into a killing. One thing is very certain - the truth is being hidden with a false narrative and scapegoats.
