White House claims they are holding themselves accountable for Libya attacks, continue to deflect questions about their failures

"After we found out that the e-mails were pouring in and the terror attack in Benghazi during the attack, and we had drones and surveillance available, and it was happening in realtime in the situation room, and at 5:00 in the afternoon Leon Panetta was at the White House meeting with the President. While there were drones over the sky in Benghazi, and people were watching them. We don't know if the President saw that. We don't know if the Secretary of Defense. I will tell you with drones in the sky and others watching why there would be an attack in the embassy in the United States and our Secretary of Defense, and our President wouldn't be watching it is incredible," Glenn said.

"White House spokesperson Jay Carney said from the Air Force One yesterday 'We had a variety of information coming in. 'Okay. Well I'm sure that is. Maybe Sasha and Malia had information coming into the White House from Disney Channel," Glenn said. "Maybe the Food Network was with Michelle. Maybe she was checking the food police there. I don't know."

"But the specific information the e-mails and dozens of intelligence reports along with the realtime video live from the event that should have meant something other than a protest due to a video. This administration insults the American intelligence, and spits in our faces every single day just as Hillary Clinton did yesterday."

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton said: "Now, finally, on Benghazi -- Look, I've said it and I'll say it one more time. No one wants to find out what happened more than I do. We are holding ourselves accountable to the American people, because not only they but our great diplomats and development experts serving in dangerous places around the world deserve no less. The Independent Accountability Review Board is already hard at work looking at everything -- not cherry picking, you know, one story here one document there, but looking at everything, which I highly recommend -- as the appropriate approach to something as complex as, ah, as an attack like this."

Glenn then went through all the actions the Pentagon took, much of which never resulted in troops being deployed. Fox News reported that the Pentagon did relocate the following assets, but did not do more because they did not have a clear idea of what the situation was on the ground:

  • Eight from Special Operations were sent from Tripoli.
  •  A "FAST team" (Fleet Anti-terrorism Security team) of Marines from Rota, Spain, were sent to guard the Embassy in Tripoli.
  • A Special Operations force was moved from central Europe to Sigonella Air Base in southern Italy, just 480 miles from Benghazi.
  • F-16s and Apache helicopters remained parked and unused at Aviano Air Base in northern Italy.
  • Two Navy destroyers already in the Mediterranean Sea were moved off the coast of Libya on the day of the attack but were never used.

Glenn wondered if more was not done because the administration was trying to figure out if the attacks were caused by a YouTube video. According to the research performed by Glenn's team there has been no mention of the YouTube video.

He said Clinton cannot claim that the administration and the State Department are holding themselves accountable when their primary response was to blame a YouTube video when no evidence supported that theory,

Furthermore, TheBlaze has reported that Thomas Pickering, the man appointed to investigate the attacks in Libya, is an  apologist for radical Islamists. TheBlaze reports:

Is the man the Obama administration appointed on October 4 as key investigator for the terror attacks in Benghazi an Islamist-sympathizer? According to recently published reports, the new chairman of a State Department’s “Accountability Review Board,” which is heading the federal investigation into the Benghazi terror attacks, has been accused of being an “apologist for Islamic terrorism who has a cozy relationship with Iran.”

What’s more, the man in question — former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering — has documented ties with the controversial group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR, of course, is a documented Muslim Brotherhood affiliate and was named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial — the largest terror-funding trial in U.S. history.

To make matters worse, Pickering is also co-chairman of the board of George Soros’ International Crisis Group who has ties to other Islamic organizations as well, including the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), which has been described as pro-Iran “front group.”

"This is extraordinarily dangerous," Glenn said.

 

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
