Benghazi Veterans For Truth? GOP Ignites New Anti-Hillary Push

February 11, 2014 5:30 p.m.

With a Hillary Clinton presidential run possible in 2016, Republicans want to keep the issue of Benghazi alive for as long as possible.

The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee has created a brand new Web site titled “Benghazi Investigation” questioning the Obama administration’s version of events and vowing to get to the truth.

And, according to Reuters, a “right-wing group of former spies and special forces operatives that says it is nonpartisan but has historical Republican ties” is launching a new push to tar the former Secretary of State with the 2012 attack that killed four U.S. diplomats, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

“If Hillary Clinton wants to run for president she’s not going to be able to continue hiding from the fact that she did nothing to help prevent the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi,” said Scott Taylor, president of the group OPSEC, according to Reuters.

The group intends to launch a critical report of Clinton’s actions in Libya, the wire service reported. Former CIA official Fred Rustmann, who Reuters quoted as someone who has spoken for the group, told the news outlet that it’s “not affiliated in any way with the Democrat, Republican or any other party.”

The attack and events surrounding it have broadly investigated and no clear evidence of wrongdoing or deliberate cover-up on the part of Clinton or top Obama administration officials has been found.
