A Marine who says he was in the area during the terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, says then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delayed help for the ambassador and others who were killed.

The testimony comes from Jon Myers, who tweeted, "I was the officer in charge of the Marine response after the Benghazi attack of 2012, in which the American consulate was destroyed and the ambassador murdered. Our mission was to reinforce the embassy.

"I was in charge of a program that had a company of Marines aboard a U.S. Navy amphibious ship (USS McHenry) conducting amphibious landing exercises around Africa. After the attack happened, we were re-tasked to respond and protect the embassy. We came up with a plan that included inserting 250 Marines and all their weaponry using Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, refueling in flight with Air Force tankers, inserting directly into the embassy," he wrote.

He went on: "Unbeknownst to most, the State Dept. must approve of military action to reinforce embassies and consulates. At the last minute, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said our plans and actions would 'send the wrong message' and that we didn't want to appear to be 'invading the Middle East.' Keep in mind, the American ambassador was just murdered and his body assaulted in a terrorist attack timed to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary. Ultimately, we were directed to insert the Marines via commercial type aircraft and then chartered bus, and not in uniform. In addition to exposing the Marines to incredible risk, it ensured massive delays as well."
