State Department under Hillary Clinton refused security requests for
Benghazi, Paul Ryan says
By Tom Kertscher on Friday, October 7th, 2016 at 5:00 a.m.
In a tweet, Paul Ryan claimed the State Department, under Hillary
Clinton, denied multiple requests for increased security in Benghazi. True.
The Sept. 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, which killed the U.S.
ambassador and three other Americans, have spurred numerous Republican
allegations against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
GOP nominee Donald Trump went so far as to say the Benghazi victims were
"left helpless to die" as Clinton, then the secretary of state, "soundly
slept in her bed."
That earned a False from PolitiFact National. Congressional
investigations did not find Clinton was inattentive, much less asleep.
Rather, she worked into the night after the attacks occurred.
Several days after that fact check was published, the sister of
Christopher Stephens, the slain ambassador, said she did not blame
Clinton. But Patricia Smith, the mother of one of the other victims, has
And Clinton, in part because of her "What difference does it make?"
remark on the attacks, continues to be a target.
House Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted this on Sept. 26, 2016, a couple of
weeks after the fourth anniversary of the attacks:
"Repeated requests for additional security in #Benghazi were routinely
denied by Secretary Clinton's State Dept."
In contrast to Trump, the Wisconsin Republican didn’t go quite as
personal -- referring to Clinton’s State Department, rather than Clinton
That helps his claim.
Prior fact check
In May 2014, ahead of one of the congressional investigations into the
Benghazi attacks, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., claimed the State
Department "not only failed to honor repeated requests for additional
security, but instead actually reduced security in Libya."
Our rating was True.
As we noted in that article:
"There are disagreements about whether State acted reasonably, but that
it didn't honor requests for additional security is established fact,"
said Georgetown University adjunct assistant professor Daveed
Gartenstein-Ross, who is also a senior fellow at the Foundation for
Defense of Democracies, which focuses on foreign policy and national
The State Department has acknowledged it rejected requests to provide
more security personnel in Libya. It also acknowledged rejecting a
request to erect guard towers at the Benghazi mission, but notes that a
number of physical security upgrades, such as the installation of
concrete barriers to block unused gates, were made during 2012.
The State Department’s own Accountability Review Board concluded that
the number of diplomatic security staff in Benghazi in the months
leading up to the attacks was inadequate "despite repeated requests"
from the Benghazi mission and the embassy in Tripoli for additional
In addition, PolitiFact National has reported that the numerous requests
from officials on the ground in Libya for better security for the
Benghazi compound are undeniable and well-documented.
It’s worth noting, though, that our colleagues have also pointed out
there is no evidence that Clinton herself was aware of the requests, or
that she willfully denied them.
Ryan said: "Repeated requests for additional security in Benghazi were
routinely denied" by Hillary "Clinton's State Department."
Ryan’s claim avoids trouble by focusing on the State Department, then
led by Clinton, rather than on Clinton herself. It’s well documented
that the department didn’t honor requests for more security prior to the
2012 attacks that killed four Americans.
We rate Ryan’s statement True.
Then they were left to DIE like dogs despite our having military assets
ready to roll.

A new congressional report on the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on a
U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead found
that the Marines tasked with responding to the attack had to change in
and out of uniform four times, slowing their arrival at the scene of the
The 800-page report, released Tuesday by the House Select Committee on
Benghazi, is the last in a series of Republican-authored probes into the
attack and the response of administration officials. It provides nearly
two dozen more details about the chain of events taken from the
testimony of key leaders, detailing what are described as communication
and intelligence failures and leadership gaps.
Among these were delays imposed on the 50-man Marine Fleet
Anti-terrorism Security Team, or FAST, which launched from Rota, Spain,
more than 2,000 miles away from Benghazi. The team was loaded onto C-130
aircraft, but held on the ground for three hours before being allowed to
According to the report, Navy Vice Adm. Kurt Tidd, then-director of
operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified that the State
Department had dithered about how to send forces into Libya without
creating a larger international incident.
"State was very, very concerned about what the footprint would look like
in Tripoli," Tidd said in testimony cited in the report. "They didn't
want it to look like we were invading.
You scumsucking Goddamned LIAR!
