Share Article

The Progressive Fairness Organization issues an update and timeline in response to the recent Benghazi Investigation and National News reporting on the U.S. Administration actions, on their website.

U.N. Ambassador Rice said in a statement, "the Talking Points provided by the Intelligence Community and the initial assessment upon which they were based, were incorrect in a key respect: there was no protest or demonstration in Benghazi.

The Progressive Fairness Organization now learns through the ongoing Benghazi Investigation that the White House Administration, including U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice, made incorrect statements and assessments regarding the Benghazi Attack of September 11th. Ambassador Rice personally admitted her error when meeting with three U.S. Senators, on Tuesday, November 27, 2012. ABC News, Nov. 27, 2012

There is now mounting evidence that, in fact, the White House Administration had plenty of warning that additional security was needed at the consulate, in the months prior to the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. New York Times, October 29, 2012

It has been reported that American Officials and Ambassador Susan Rice, mislead U.S. citizens by reporting that there was an assault on the US Consulate in Libya, as a result of a spontaneous mob, angry about an Islamic YouTube video. They disregarded the reports that it was a well-orchestrated massacre by Islamic extremist tied to Al-Qaeda. Also, reported was that American Intelligence agencies, as well as Libyan Officials in Benghazi, provided warnings over the past year that a weakened Libyan government had little control over militias including Ansar al-Shariah. Forbes, November 19, 2012

The Progressive Fairness Organization maintains its position that the American People deserve to know the truth as to what contributed to the death of four Americans in Benghazi. Although, we are aware that many other Americans have died for our freedom in Benghazi, Afghanistan, Iran, and many other countries. What makes the Benghazi Attack on 9/11 so unbelievable, is the fact that the White House Administration did not report the truth and continues to avoid the truth. NBC News, November 28, 2012

The Progressive Fairness Organization provides a brief timeline of events that led up to the attack, what happened during the attack, and the aftermath of the attack. Some sources include, ABC News, NBC News, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Forbes, and South Dakota Politics. A brief timeline to follow below or visit The Benghazi Attack Timeline.
