Benghazi Hero Warns Of Exodus of Special Operators


Don't believe she'll have their backs



According to one of the heroes of Benghazi, special operators will leave military and government service if Hillary Clinton becomes president, because they do not believe she would have their backs.
Former CIA operative and Marine John “Tig” Tiegen told The Daily Caller that sentiment is based both on her actions during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi, and her treatment of highly classified information. 
“There’s guys leaving now just because of that,” Tiegen said during an interview Tuesday. “because they don’t know if the call for help is going to be heard.”
“Her leadership that night on 9/11 (2012) shows what kind of leader she would probably end up being as a president,” the Benghazi survivor contended.
He noted what the Select Committee on Benghazi discovered in its investigation: Much of Clinton’s time during the two-hour meeting in the White House Situation Room as the attacks were unfolding was spent discussing the false internet video narrative that she and others the Obama administration would claim was the cause of the attack.   
“Instead of making sure … the Americans she sent there come home safe … she goes home. That’s it,” he stated. “If you’re going to be a leader and your employees are under attack, you should be in the Situation Room watching it.”
Based on her actions that night, “I don’t see how anyone can trust her as a commander-in-chief,” Tiegen said. 
The former CIA operative was also troubled by Clinton’s handling of highly classified material.
Her lack of respect for security information, top secret information, that just puts lives in jeopardy, not just American lives, but our foreign assets. Who wants to work with us, if you have somebody like that?” he wondered. 
“Espionage is such a big thing because information kills people, it destroys countries … Her lackadaisical attitude towards it, blows [special operators’] minds,” Tiegen added, pointing out if any of them did what Clinton has done, they would be hauled off to jail, not permitted to run for president of the United States.
As reported by Western Journalism, Tiegen and fellow Benghazi hero Mark “Oz” Geist endorsed Donald Trump for president in February.
Speaking at the GOP convention in Cleveland Monday night, Geist echoed Tiegen’s sentiment of how important it is to know the commander-in-chief will support those sent into harm’s way.
“As Americans we have an opportunity to elect somebody who will make this country safe again,” Geist said. “We have to elect someone who will have our backs. Someone who will bring our guys home. Won’t leave anybody behind.”
