Two of Hillary Clinton’s emails about the Benghazi attack will be revealed to the public after a federal judge’s ruling on Friday that the State Department has to share with the American people the contents of those emails sent just two days after the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya.
The publication of the information was achieved by the watchdog group Judicial Watch that had sued the State Department through the Freedom of Information Act.
“The full emails may reveal what former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama knew about the Sept. 11, 2012, terror attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi,” Judicial Watch stated.
The emails, dated Sept. 13, 2012, consist of eight exact same paragraphs, Judicial Watch said, “Quick Summary of POTUS Calls to Presidents of Libya and Egypt.”
The State Department released the emails to Judicial Watch, but redacted the contents using what’s known as the “deliberative process” exemption.
However, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson read the emails and said the exemption was not applicable.
Judicial Watch stated that the redaction was not a misunderstanding but part of a “deliberate effort by the State Department to protect Clinton and the agency by avoiding identifying emails on Clinton’s unofficial, non-secure email server as classified.”
The emails were relived to the top Obama administration officials including Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, Clinton Deputy Chief of Staff Jacob Sullivan, Special Assistant Robert Russo, and Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough.
The attack on the Benghazi compound ended with deaths of four Americans. Clinton and the Obama White House told the American people a other version of the cause than the real one.
Clinton stated that the administration was “working to determine the precise motivations” of the attackers but that “some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our Embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet.”
A material Obama administration claimed, was an anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube.
However, Clinton’s private comments were different.
“We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack — not a protest,” she said in a call to Egypt’s prime minister. “Based on the information we saw today, we believe the group that claimed responsibility for this was affiliated with al Qaeda.”
On Sept. 14, 2012, White House spokesman Jay Carney, stated that, “We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that Muslims, many Muslims find offensive. And while the violence is reprehensible and unjustified, it is not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of, or to U.S. policy.”
