Hillary Clinton continues struggling to distance herself from the radioactive fallout from the attacks on the State Department compound in Benghazi, Libya in 2012 that left four Americans dead. SOFREP has recently uncovered information not previously released by the press.

Many are quick to light their torches and encircle presidential candidate Hillary Clinton without due process. It’s worth taking a step back to acknowledge that Clinton’s role as secretary of state was largely to serve as a public figurehead; the day-to-day, on-the-ground operations were run by Patrick Kennedy.

Take a moment and think of it like a dysfunctional, publicly held company. Hillary was the chairman of the board but not the CEO. The true decision-makers, directly responsible for the lack of security preparedness in Libya and the poor decision-making in the aftermath of the attacks, were Undersecretary of Management Patrick Kennedy (the CEO in this metaphor) and Charlene Lamb (the senior VP).

The big questions that should be asked by the House Select Committee on Benghazi are, “Why didn’t Mrs. Clinton hold Kennedy and Lamb accountable in the aftermath?” and “What do these two have on her that keeps Hillary blocking and tackling in the media for two diplomats whose decisions got good Americans killed that day?”
