New York news conference: Foreign policy expert Andy Martin predicted growing risk of attacks on Americans
Republican Party foreign policy expert Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference today, Sunday 23rd to renew his demand for the resignation of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In a September 5th column Martin predicted the growing danger because of the conflicts between Secretary of State Clinton’ ‘foreign policy’ and former President Bill Clinton’s own foreign policy. Andy said “The Clintons are putting their own agenda and their own interests ahead of U. S. Government efforts to conduct the war on terror.” A week later, Al Qaeda’s local sympathizers attacked the U. S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. “It is a tragedy that my analysis and prediction were so accurate. Hillary Clinton is a disaster. She should resign today. She is responsible for the worst overseas fiasco in American foreign policy since the Iran hostage crisis.” Andy charges. “She must resign. Now. Before more Americans die.”

(NEWYORK) (September 23, 2012) Republican foreign policy expert and conservative blogger Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference today, Sunday September 23rd to renew his demand that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton resign. Andy accuses Clinton of “being responsible for the biggest overseas foreign policy fiasco since the Iran hostage crisis.”
“Last week The Associated Press issued a national story in which they said I was a foreign policy expert ‘in my own mind,’” Andy says. “Maybe The Associated Press owes me an apology. (Other than these remarks I am not taking any action against the Associated Press; they have egg on their face.)
“On September 5th I posted a column. There is a link below to my accusations and predictions on September 5th. I said then:
Secretary Clinton’s stated reluctance to insult Pakistan may in reality be an unwillingness to create a chasm–of reality–between U. S. foreign policy and security interests, and the Clinton family’s ‘global’ agenda.
“I accused Hillary and Bill Clinton’s ‘soft’ foreign policy of undermining U. S. Security interests. A week later I was proven correct.
“On September 12th – the day after the 9/11 attacks in Libya – I called for the resignation of Hillary Clinton and identified her as the security breach in our foreign policy. (see link below). Based on my sources I predicted matters would get ‘much worse.’
“With every passing day the Benghazi disaster and the murder of our ambassador becomes the most serious foreign policy fiasco since Jimmy Carter’s Iran hostage crisis. Hillary Clinton has appointed a ‘committee’ to study her own incompetence. Wow.
“Obama’s U. N. ambassador claimed the Libya attack was due to a ‘video.’ Obama’s news secretary repeated the ‘video’ canard. President Obama went on Univision and said he ‘didn’t have all the facts,’ which is a form of paranoid schizophrenic defense mechanism.
“Slowly, the truth is leaking out. We used foreign security contractors in Libya. Where else are we using ‘contractors?’ The Libya murders were in all probability an inside job. How many other security risks are on Clinton’s payroll?
“A U. S. ambassador is called the ‘chief of mission’ for good reason. He or she is the chief. Ambassadors receive extraordinary protection at all times. We have a 200-year tradition of guarding U. S. diplomatic installations with U. S. Marines.
“Obama has disarmed our Marines. Their weapons are unloaded. Where were the Marines in Libya? They were not in Benghazi. Obama has disarmed our Marines from Tripoli to Cairo to who-knows-where? Now that the word is out that our Marines are unarmed, can a new attack be long in coming? Obama has converted our Marines into mannequins.
“Ironically, the State Department has its own very professional security force. Where were the State Department’s security experts in Libya?
“Bill Clinton is in New York this week promoting his ‘Global Initiative,’ which in reality his own ‘Bill foreign policy.’ He runs his ‘Initiative’ with 1,300 people. Clinton has almost as formidable a presence overseas as his wife’s State Department. But Bill Clinton’s ‘foreign policy’ is not the American people’s foreign policy. Clinton’s people answer to him, not to Congress and the American people.
“Hillary Clinton’s State Department has become an adjunct to Bill Clinton’s operations, not vice versa. The ‘soft’ approach to overseas threats that Bill followed in the White House has become Hillary’s own modus operandi. As a result, Americans are dying, and more will die unless Hillary is removed as Secretary of State.
“The Iran hostage crisis was the result of a local intelligence failure. The Libya murders: the result of a local intelligence failure. When I lived in Baghdad I had a better intelligence network than the Chief of Mission, the hapless Paul Bremer. I moved out of my hotel into a private apartment because I surmised an attack was imminent. The hotel was rocketed.
“The United States was clueless in downtown Baghdad where I lived; Hillary Clinton’s State Department was clueless s about conditions in Libya, and particularly conditions in Benghazi. How could they let the Chief of Mission drive around with minimal security? How could a ‘safe house’ be rendered ‘unsafe’ and become a death house? Americans died because of Clinton’s gross incompetence, mismanagement and overweening political correctness. I am alive today because despite the AP’s chiding I was and am a ‘foreign policy expert.’ Americans are dying because Hillary Clinton is not.
“I will keep waiting for my ‘apology’ from The Associated Press. It appears that I had more expertise about the risks to our Foreign Service Officers than the AP did. I didn’t predict that the Al Qaeda affiliate would strike in Benghazi. I predicted there was a heightened terrorist risk, and I was right. Dead right. I predicted conditions were ripe for new attacks. A week later my premonitions were proven correct. Now who’s the real foreign policy expert?
“Sadly, there are Americans who in good faith want to vote for the reelection of Barack Obama. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have blood on their hands as a result of their security fiasco in Libya. Voting for Obama is voting for more Americans to die. Ignoring the threat Hillary Clinton has created is ignoring that American lives are in danger every day because Clinton genuflects to her husband and her president. It is time for Hillary to resign. Clinton owes the American people an apology for the fiasco she helped create in Libya; she also owes us her resignation,” Andy charges.
“Amazingly, the media are silent on the link between Bill Clinton’s ‘foreign policy’ and our growing foreign policy crisis in the Muslim world. Yes, Obama is also to blame. But the Clinton-Clinton ‘axis’ has done and is doing incalculable damage to our national security. Other than myself, the media are silent. The liberal media are intimidated by the Clintons.
“Finally, it is time to tell the U. S. Marines who guard our diplomatic missions overseas to ‘lock and load.’ Disarming our Marines is endangering our diplomatic staffers around the world.
‘Gun control’ for our Marines has led to the death of our Chief in Libya. How many more Americans will have to die before Barack Obama starts allowing Americans to defend themselves instead of making our diplomats fodder for Muslim slaughter?”
