Prosecutor On Benghazi: ‘Betrayed The People Who Have Put Their Lives On The Line’

The terrorist attack on the American installation in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, and what was done afterwards is the “most horrifying of the administration scandals” to former prosecutor, Andy McCarthy. He has emphasized Benghazi in his new book,”Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment,” which includes six possible articles of impeachment.

In this exclusive Daily Caller interview, McCarthy discusses the Benghazi scandal as an “utterly foreseeable” act of terrorism on the anniversary of 9/11. To this author, the problem started with a “unilateral” and “unprovoked war with no American interests” declared by Obama in Libya that included “empowering anti-American jihadists.”

McCarthy says the whole debacle ends with a “trumped up prosecution” of a video-maker exercising his First Amendment rights.

In summary, he says about Benghazi: “There, from soup to nuts, you see lawlessness. You see the undermining of the checks and balances that are in our system in order to make sure that no branch of the government is able to tyrannize the country. Basically, you reduce Congress to irrelevancy. You see fraud across the board.  And, everyplace you turn, the fundamental rights of Americans are eroded.”

On discussing the victims of the Benghazi debacle, McCarthy states, “If we want good, courageous people to do the things that we need done in the world, in terms of our security and in terms of our diplomacy, we have to make people believe that we will protect our own personnel.”

In conclusion, McCarthy questions why young people would agree to serve their country knowing the fact that “we’ve betrayed the people who have put their lives on the line for us.”
