The memory of Benghazi

I haven't seen the recently released Benghazi movie yet, but my anger--yes anger--at what happened, and failed to happen there, has yet to ebb. I, along with millions of other patriotic Americans, will never forget what happened in Benghazi, despite the best efforts of the far-left and activist media to wish away the memories of the dead.

Sean Smith, Chris Stevens, Ty Woods, and Glen Doherty died in Benghazi, and the sad and simple fact is that nothing was done to save them and we still don't have the answers as to why.

I spent twelve years serving as a special agent with the United States Secret Service and I was a member of countless international security advance teams. I designed, and helped design, numerous multi-faceted and layered security plans for our President and other dignitaries while on foreign soil.

I never recall being part of a plan that included the stipulation, "implement this evacuation and security plan only when you definitively know the details surrounding the attack." The excuses the Obama administration continues to make for leaving our men to die in Benghazi never address this critical issue.

The Diplomatic Security Service special agents on the ground in Benghazi charged with the security for Ambassador Chris Stevens and the Benghazi compound operate using protocols similar to the security protocols we used in the Secret Service.

These are well-trained and competent security professionals who are experts at designing evacuation plans for "what if" scenarios. I am confident they had a plan for the "what if the special mission complex in Benghazi is attacked" scenario.

This fact creates a series of extremely uncomfortable questions for Obama administration apologists and Clinton acolytes who care little about the memories of the fallen, and more about containing the negative politics of their Benghazi failures.
