Joe DiGenova is an attorney representing whistleblower(s) in the Benghazi incident and was on WMAL radio Monday morning to discuss the 60 Minutes story on Benghazi Sunday night. During his interview DiGenova said that there is evidence that people in the military chain of command were relieved of their duties because they tried to send help to our people under siege in Benghazi.
This collaborates a story from The Blaze last week that several top military commanders have been “fired” in the last year, many of whom had direct ties to what happened that night.
The Right Scoop has a partial transcript of DiGenova’s remarks:
There is more to learn about Benghazi. Panetta has never told the full story.
Here’s an interesting question. Remember General Ham and what happened the night of the assault on the American embassy? We have reason to believe that things happened that night in the chain of command where people were relieved of their duties because they insisted that there be a military response. We’re working on trying to establish that with some news organizations but there’s very very good evidence that people were actually relieved of command because they refused not to try and dispatch troops and some response.
And by the way, this notion that the administration has put out – it’s this little strawman that military couldn’t have landed in Libya, Greg Hicks has testified and so have some other military people that if there had only been a flyover, that would have dispersed these crowds because they remembered what the American military did its flyovers and its assaults.
There were planes in Croatia that could have been there by the time of the attack on the annex and no planes were ever sent. That was because the president of the United States refused to issue an order allowing for the dispersal of military into Libya because that was considered an act of war. The president, himself, who went to sleep, refused to issue some order.
You know, Panetta is not a bad man. He knows what went wrong that night. He’s never been properly questioned about this and pressed. And if he were he would admit all of this stuff.
