Fact Check: Retired Army Major Calls BS (Literally) on Obama Surrogate’s Libya Claims

During an Oct. 14 appearance on Meet the Press, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) tried to take the heat off Obama/Biden by claiming that the requests for security in Libya were not made for Benghazi but for Tripoli.

One day later (October 15), retired U.S. Army Major Mike Faessler responded to Granholm’s inaccurate claim with the following email:

Gov Granholm:

Just so you know – you are 100% incorrect in your statement. That’s a polite way of saying that a) you have your head up your ass..and b) you either have no clue what you are talking about, or have chosen to intentionally lie for the Administration. I suspect the latter.

I’ve spent 24 years in uniform; lived/worked 14 years abroad, including multiple occasions in US Embassies working sensitive security issues! Get your facts straight.

Respond if you have a pair.



MAJ, US Army, Retired
