Benghazi Contractors: Hillary's State Department Told Us Not To Cooperate With Congressional Investigators

Posted: Sep 13, 2017 2:30 PM

During an interview with The Today Show Wednesday morning former Democrat presidential candidate and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton whined about the 2012 Benghazi attacks, which left four Americans dead, having an impact on her political prospects. 

But late yesterday Fox News broke a new story on Benghazi, in which two contractors say Clinton's State Department not only ignored their assessments the consulate was unsecured and unprepared for the September 11, 2012 anniversary, but that they were told to shut up and not to cooperate with Congressional investigators about the attack in the aftermath. 

Security at the State Department's Benghazi compound was so dire that another contractor was brought in to clean up the mess just two weeks before the 2012 terror attack – and was later pressured to keep quiet by a government bureaucrat under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to two men from the American security company.  

Brad Owens and Jerry Torres, of Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions, say they faced pressure to stay silent and get on the same page with the State Department with regard to the security lapses that led to the deaths of four Americans.


As contractor and former Army intelligence officer Brad Owens said in the report, the same people who made the security decisions leading up to Benghazi were never held accountable and are still making security decisions today for U.S. posts around the world.
