LaRouche: Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Revelations Mean Obama Must Be Impeached Immediately!

[PDF version of this article]

June 24—Lyndon LaRouche today demanded that the U.S. House of Representatives launch immediate impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, based on then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s account of the President’s lying cover-up of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, in which U.S. Amb. Christopher Stevens and three other American officials were murdered in cold blood by the al-Qaeda-affiliated Ansar al-Sharia terrorist organization.

The Clinton revelations are contained in the just-released book Blood Feud by Edward Klein. According to the Klein account, provided by a close Hillary Clinton aide and attorney, at 10 p.m. on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, after Clinton had received detailed accounts of the terror attack in Benghazi, and knew that the al-Qaeda affiliated Ansar al-Sharia had launched a heavily-armed premeditated assault, she received a personal telephone call from President Obama, ordering her to release a false statement claiming that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration protesting a video that had slandered the Prophet Mohammed.

After Clinton protested to the President that there was clear intelligence that the attack was an al-Qaeda revenge attack, on the anniversary of the original 9/11 attacks, Obama persisted and demanded that Secretary Clinton immediately issue Obama’s false statement to the American people and the world. Both Secretary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton concluded that President Obama, fearing that his re-election would be jeopardized by letting out the truth about the Benghazi attack, ordered the fake story to be issued. At 10:30 p.m., Secretary Clinton, on President Obama’s orders, issued the false account.

EIR has confirmed from two highly qualified sources, including one with first-hand knowledge of the events of Sept. 11, 2012, that the Klein account of the telephone call between the President and Secretary Clinton is accurate.

Based on this solid corroboration of the Clinton account, Lyndon LaRouche today demanded that President Obama be immediately impeached for lying to the American people and covering up one of the most heinous crimes against American officials since the original 9/11 attacks. “Obama lied to cover up the murders of four American officials and this makes him an accomplice after the fact to those murders,” LaRouche declared. “The President lied. He is unfit to be President and he must be immediately impeached.”

The Clinton revelations put President Obama personally in the middle of the lies and cover-up. There is no longer any doubt about the Presidents complicity in the cover-up. “Hillary Clinton has confirmed that the President was lying. The President can no longer deny his own personal role in the lying to the American people,” LaRouche declared. “Now, Congress must act. The House Select Committee on Benghazi has no choice but to immediately initiate impeachment proceedings against President Obama. This is no time for partisan opportunism. Unless President Obama is immediately subject to impeachment articles, the very foundations of our Constitutional Republic will be shattered. President Obama has nowhere to hide any longer. Every patriotic American must stand up and hold Congress accountable for the President’s immediate impeachment.”
