The Benghazi Running Club organization was created to remind people that four Americans were killed during the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012 and that Hillary Clinton and members of the State Department were not held accountable for their actions on that day.
The organization has been working diligently and actively to spread the word so that people never forget those that died that day, including Hillary Clinton.
“Our organization was founded based on the fact that four brave Americans died in Benghazi, Libya on September 11-12, 2012 and they did not have to,” a founder who spoke on anonymity due to their sensitive employment situation told American MilitaryNews. “We believe the State Department and Hillary Clinton were derelict in their duties regarding Benghazi.”
“When we witnessed Hillary Clinton’s conduct at the Benghazi hearing and especially her comment, ‘What difference at this point does it make?’ we decided it made a huge difference,” the member added. “We wanted a way to keep the memory of Benghazi alive, especially since so many powerful people were trying to bury it without fully explaining or taking responsibility for it. ”
Since soldiers and first responders are the ones that run into the action, the group decided to create the name Benghazi Running Club.
“It is symbolic because the men who fought in Benghazi ran to save lives, they ran into danger, not from it,” the member said. “They were committed to leaving no one behind. This is what first responders, whether they be police officers, fire fighters, or soldiers do.”
The organization’s logo has the words “We will not leave you behind” over a figure of a runner.
The Benghazi Running Club has a Twitter page that constantly has tweets regarding Hillary Clinton and the Benghazi terrorist attack.
The group also sells products on Cafe Press at “The Poppycock Shop” and all proceeds go directly to the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation which was created to raise money for special operations veterans to come home and transition to civilian life.
Glen Doherty was a Navy SEAL and one of the four Americans that was killed in the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012.
