#BENGHAZI: Just Kidding. No Real Resignations.

As I stated last week via the NY Times article, it looked to me like these folks were being paid off by being put on administrative leave. Emphasis added:

Oh hey, look…Some resignations! With the Accountability report also came four resignations. Four is a nice round number to take the blame for what was ultimately the role, responsibility and fault of the President and Hillary Clinton. Perhaps the number if more symbolic – four resignations for four murdered Americans.  NY Times:

Eric J. Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, resigned. Charlene R. Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary responsible for embassy security, and another official in the diplomatic security office whom officials would not identify were relieved of their duties. So was Raymond Maxwell, a deputy assistant secretary who had responsibility for North Africa. The four officials, a State Department spokeswoman said, “have been placed on administrative leave pending further action.”

I want to know who the other official they would not name is.  The article says they resigned or were relieved of duty, yet they are placed on administrative leave as well? Does that mean they’re being paid  for their trouble of playing the part of scapegoats?

The NY Post confirms my suspicion:

The four officials supposedly out of jobs because of their blunders in the run-up to the deadly Benghazi terror attack remain on the State Department payroll — and will all be back to work soon, The Post has learned.

The highest-ranking official caught up in the scandal, Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, has not “resigned” from government service, as officials said last week. He is just switching desks. And the other three are simply on administrative leave and are expected back.

The four were made out to be sacrificial lambs in the wake of a scathing report issued last week that found that the US compound in Benghazi, Libya, was left vulnerable to attack because of “grossly inadequate” security.

Someone in the three-ring circus of Congressional Committees better fire up the Subpoena machine and get Hillary before she can plead the 5th. By the way, where are all the survivors of Benghazi?

    It is the most transparent administration ever.

    Transparently corrupt.

    And the buck stops where?

    Typical DC political games, I’m sorry to say.

  • GarandFan

    No surprises. How many were thrown out over “Fast and Furious”. And Jamie Gorlecki still has a government job.

  • When asked what his priorities will be when he arrives in Libya, Amb. Stevens stated that he wants to help ensure that there is a stable democracy and to find justice in the Pan Am 103 case. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keAn2jGyB78… The selective use of polygraphs by corrupt FBI officials must stop! No one is above the law, including FBI Director Robert Mueller, who conspired to cover up the Pan Am Flight 103 incident. Google “the selective use of polygraphs”

    Well surprise, surprise. No one has been held accountable for blatantly criminal offenses in the Fast & Furious affair so why would anyone be punished of mere incompetence and neglect of duty in the Benghazi affair?

  • Jack Zimms

    Notice how many of the old stream media is covering this.
    Imagine if this was a Republican administration.

    I’m so glad budget cuts mean the State department can’t protect it’s personell properly. We need more spending cuts NOW.

    Govt workers have it easy. They need a little risk in their lives. Win some, lose some.
