Chain email on Dee Dee Myers and Benghazi

Editor's note: Below is the full text of a chain email we received on Sept. 4, 2013. Read our fact-check on its accuracy.

I thought this gal was strongly in the Democrat Camp. I guess you can get upset with folks that live in your own house!

Snopes and Truth or Fiction checked before forwarding this one. Both sites confirmed the authenticity of this letter. This is quite an eye-opener to say the least.

Dee Dee Myers, White House Press Secretary during the first two years of the Clinton administration, wanted to share the truth of what happened over in Libya to our Ambassador Stevens and the other 3 who died on 9/11-12/13.

"Here is my story".

A week out, the Embassy in Tripoli began receiving multiple tips about an Al Queda cell in the area planning an attack on 9/11 in response to the killing of Bin Laden. For the next several days, the State Dept and White House were asked for a security force and were denied at least six times. Ambassador Stevens and his team were given the all clear that The Consulate in Benghazi was safe and there was no need for a security force other than his 3 personal guards (One being my cousin) and a few Libyans who were not armed.

Then the attack and murders occurred. Immediately the WH claimed it was a protest gone bad over a You Tube video. Obama made a quick speech in the Rose Garden Sept.12 before catching a plane to Vegas to campaign. He made a generic statement at the end of his speech after placing the blame on an overheated protest over the video. He said "No act of terror will shake the resolve of America."

Later and over the next 2 days, the media said Ambassador Stevens and the other 3 men died of smoke inhalation. This was not the case. Out of respect for my cousin, I'm not going to be specific about his murder.

However Ambassador Stevens was brutally murdered. His genitals were cut off, he was sodomized and beaten and cut and stabbed and burned. He was dragged thru the streets and left for dead. This is eyewitness testimony of a local Dr. who found the Ambassador in a ditch and tried to save his life. He had no idea who he was. The other 3 men, including my cousin, met similar fates.

Death due to smoke inhalation is a 100% fabricated LIE. The next week I drove my aunt and uncle and 2 others to DC to receive his body. We met with Hillary, whom I remain friends with, Panetta, and Susan Rice. All apologized saying it was a protest gone bad over a video and exited the area. Next Obama entered with the same story and made no apology and offered little sympathy.

My aunt cried and all he did was hand her flowers and walk away. I tried to get his attention, but failed. Then a secret service agent I knew from my years in the White House, led me to a room where I was held till the proceedings were over.

Most have not a clue about this man and yet we support him. These murders and the fast and furious cover ups make Watergate look like, a kid who told his bff's secret to the class.

The leadership of our country has reduced to lies and deception.......what has happened to us ? How I long for President Clinton.
