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.

 

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
