New York News Conference: Andy Martin charges Hillary Clinton’s “clearance” request led to American deaths in Benghazi

October 21, 2012

Romney’s Rangers, The Independent Mitt Romney Political Action Team led by Republican foreign policy expert Andy Martin, will hold a New York City news conference today, Sunday, October 21st to charge that delays created by Hillary Clinton’s “requests” for “clearance” to Libyan authorities to allow Americans to defend the U. S. Consulate in Benghazi were directly responsible for the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and other Americans.


Andy says Governor Mitt Romney must focus on the “clearance” idiocy at Monday night’s debate and demand Obama “stop stonewalling the American people.” Andy was the first foreign policy analyst to understand the significance of the Benghazi catastrophe; Andy predicted on September 12th that the Benghazi scandal would be the precipitating factor in defeating President Obama for reelection.


Andy’s prior experience in Libya and throughout the Arab and Muslim world gives him unique contacts in the region and a unique perspective on the emerging domestic political scandal. Andy further predicted on October 14th that that the clandestine community would retaliate for Obama’s efforts to blame U. S. intelligence services for Obama’s Libya imbroglio; the retaliation arrived Saturday afternoon in the form of disclosures that Clinton had delayed sending in rescue forces to Benghazi while she contacted Libyan authorities for “clearance” to launch her rescue mission.

Romney’s Rangers, led by Republican Party foreign policy expert Andy Martin, says Mitt Romney must demand answers Monday night as to why Hillary Clinton delayed rescuing Americans in Benghazi while she sought “clearance” from Libyan authorities


Andy says Mitt Romney should consider whether Clinton’s ridiculous deference to the Libyan government was an impeachable offense or at least a serious dereliction of duty calling for Clinton’s resignation.


Andy says Romney must demand that Obama release all of the “Benghazi tapes” and military records immediately and “stop stonewalling the American people”


“Saturday afternoon, just as I predicted it would on October 14th, the ‘smoking gun’ that will explode Benghazi-gate finally appeared,” Andy says. “”Hillary refused to launch a rescue mission because she lacked ‘clearance’ from Libyan authorities”


Andy Martin’s analysis of the Libyan crisis produced the first prediction – amazingly on September 12th – that the Libyan fiasco would lead to the reelection defeat of Barack Obama; “I told you so,” Andy says


Andy charges that State Department official Charlene Lamb and Secretary Clinton could have rescued Ambassador Chris Stevens and failed to do so; “What were they requesting ‘clearance’ for,” Andy demands, “if not for a rescue mission? Hillary Clinton’s ‘clearance’ request is directly responsible for the deaths of American diplomats”


(New York) (October 21, 2012) Republican Party foreign policy expert and New Hampshire activist Andy Martin was the first foreign policy analyst to defend Governor Mitt Romney on September 12th and to disclose the domestic political impact of the September 11th attacks on the U. S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya [see links below]. Andy predicted on September 12th that “Libya” would be the issue that defeated President’s Obama’s reelection


Today, Sunday, October 21st Andy will hold a New York news conference to urge Governor Mitt Romney to demand full disclosure at Monday night’s presidential debate in Florida of all of the documents and records (including voice tapes and videos and Pentagon files) concerning Benghazi-gate.


“Two things were clarified Saturday,” Andy charges. One of them may call for the impeachment of Hillary Clinton.


“On October 14th I predicted that Because of President Obama’s slimy effort to shift blame for Benghazi-gate to the clandestine community, additional disclosures by intelligence sources would undermine President Obama’s ‘defense’ and trigger his defeat for reelection [see links below]. As if on schedule, those disclosures arrived Saturday afternoon.


“CBS News reported that while Americans were under attack, and while American territory was under attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was ‘requesting clearance from Libyan authorities’ for Americans to come to the rescue of the embattled Benghazi consulate [link below]. The American people do not require permission from ‘Libyan authorities’ to come to the rescue of American citizens and American officials who are under attack. Clinton’s dereliction was an example of the mindless political correctness that is destroying American foreign policy. Clinton’s ‘request’ was bizarre, unprecedented and unprincipled.


“Obama and Clinton now face the disclosure they were asking the Libyan government – wherever and whatever that is – for permission to defend American soil and to rescue American personnel. I believe Clinton’s ridiculous deference to Libyan authorities while Americans were under attack is potentially an impeachable offense. When America is under attack, we do not need to ask permission from any government to defend ourselves.


“It is clear that if the bozo running ‘security’ at the State Department, Charlene Lamb, had acted immediately she could have rescued Ambassador Chris Stevens and Lamb failed to do so. Charlene Lamb should resign immediately. Lamb is incompetent, arrogant and insufferably politically correct. A burst from a gunship or a rocket shot into the compound would have probably scared off the attackers. Instead, due to Lamb’s incompetence and Clinton’s incompetence, Ambassador Stevens died – after surviving the initial attack.


“Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been stonewalling the American people since September 12th. Monday night, the stonewalling should end,” Andy says. “Americans died in Benghazi because of political correctness and gross incompetence within the State Department.”

His analysis of the terrorist threat in Iran during the 1979-80 hostage crisis, and again in Iraq in 2003, were leading-edge predictions of what Americans faced in the future.
