The Blaze Debunks Glenn Beck Yet Again
Today, Glenn Beck's website, The Blaze, reported that the Republican-led House Armed Services Committee is set to release a report on the 2012 attack in Benghazi that concludes that the military was never ordered to "stand down" during the attack and refrain from attempting to help Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the others who were killed in the attack:
A House committee formally concluded for the first time that there was no military “stand down” order given on the night of the deadly terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
It’s a finding that one committee aide acknowledged to TheBlaze, “some people are going to be upset about.” The allegation that the military was told to stand down on aiding the Americans in Benghazi has long been used to accuse the Obama administration of not doing enough to save the lives of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks.
The Republican-led House Armed Services Committee, however, concluded in its new report that no such order was given; rather, Army Lt. Col. S.E. Gibson, then-head of the site security team at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, was ordered by higher commanders to remain in Tripoli, lest another attack take place there as part of a larger coordinated assault.
“The term ‘stand down’ means different things to different people. To someone in uniform, it means you are to do nothing … that is not the direction that Lt. Col. Gibson was given,” the committee aide told TheBlaze.
Among those who are probably "going to be upset" about this finding is none other than Glenn Beck himself, who has spent over a year repeatedly accusing President Obama of refusing to help those at the compound and intentionally letting them die, weeping on camera that such callous indifference on the part of the President means that "today officially is the day that I no longer recognize my country":
We'd also like to point out that, during one of his previous Benghazi rants, Beck declared that anyone who would repeat demonstrably false statements regardless of that facts about a situation like this is a pathological liar with "deep psychological problems."
