Ambassador Stevens’ emails leading up to Benghazi attack will give you CHILLS; Gowdy says nobody cared

October 19, 2015 | Michael Dorstewitz

Countering claims that the House Select Committee on Benghazi is unearthing nothing new, its chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, indicated that NONE of the previous seven committees had bothered to obtain the late Ambassador Chris Stevens’ emails.

“How did they miss Ambassador Stevens’ emails? None of the seven previous committees bothered to access the emails of our ambassador,” the South Carolina Republican told CBS News’ “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson, Sunday, at about the 4:30 mark.

“If you want a window into Libya and what was happening in the weeks and months before these four were killed, why would you not look at the Ambassador’s emails?”

Gowdy indicated that the emails showed that Stevens began requesting additional security almost from the day he arrived in Libya, on June 7.

“And on one occasion, he even joked in an email ‘maybe we should ask another government to pay for our security upgrades because our government isn’t willing to do it.’ So if you want to know what’s happening in Libya, you have to look at his emails,” Gowdy said.

He was puzzled why then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is scheduled to appear before the committee Thursday, received numerous intelligence updates from Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal, but apparently ignored Stevens’ reports.

“I want to know why certain things made it to your inbox, Madam Secretary, but the plaintive pleadings of our own ambassador, that you put in place, for more security never bothered to make it to your inbox,” said Gowdy.

Watch the interview, via CBS News.

Hillary had all of Ambassador Steven's emails begging for more security expunged for her server, you can BET on that.

We have to ask a simple question.

If Ambassador Steven's was really concerned about security in Benghazi then why didn't he have the CIA agents there report to him at the Embassy that has US Marine security as opposed to placing himself at risk by traveling to Benghazi where the Libyan security forces were ultimately responsible for security?

The US provides security for US embassies while the host government provides security for consulates.

I don't know the answer to that question Shiva.
I do know the Brits had pulled out and the Red Cross had pulled out also.l
There were several incursions by bad guys prior to the September 11th attack.

Ambassador Stevens' communications are obviously relevant and could answer many questions.

Unless it is in his emails or some other document we cannot ask him why he wasn't at the embassy on the anniversary of 9/11. Given his numerous requests for additional security it seems unlikely he was at the consulate of his own volition.

It does bring up an interesting question as to why our vaunted SoS didn't have our diplomatic personnel in an upgraded security posture on 9/11, especially in troubled areas like Libya. Indeed, anti American violence broke out across the ME catching the Obama administration flat footed. Of course the Obama administration including Hillary was so enthralled by the President's rhetoric proclaiming a flowering of democracy and friendship across the ME that no arrangements were made for the rapid deployment of a rescue mission. But pointing these Obama/Clinton failures out is "partisan politics."

It was well known to the State department that the Libyan government was incapable of providing security for the consulate prior to the terrorist attack that killed the 4 Americans. It is absurd to suggest Hillary's State department was not grossly negligent in failing to provide US security forces for the consulate.

If Ambassador Steven's was "really concerned" about security in Benghazi? Seems like your question is DOA. Unless of course you really think he wasn't despite all the evidence to the contrary. But ultimately if there is an answer to your odd question/premise, it would have to be that our government, the administration and the state department failed him and us. Good news is that right after the attack, the administration got their head out of their ass and increased security worldwide at diplomatic and military facilities. Hindsight being 20/20 and all of that.


With regard to Steven's denied request, the title from the committee on oversight and government reform says it all best. BENGHAZI: EXPOSING FAILURE AND RECOGNIZING COURAGE.

yep. and why he went there in the first place. we did what we could in light of private contractor bull. this hearing , besides fodder for a gop campaign, is to cover for the fact we shud get rid of most of them and scrutinize the need and pay grade for the rest.
