'60 Minutes' Benghazi Witness Admits To Changing His Story, Raising Questions About Broadcast

This guy was the most obvious liar I've ever seen. I literally lol'd when he told his story about confronting some terrorist on the rooftop and hitting him with his gun. - ChrisNEW YORK -- Security officer Dylan Davies admitted this weekend that he lied to a superior in September 2012 about his whereabouts the night of the Benghazi attack. But Davies says his latest version of events, told on CBS' "60 Minutes" and in a new memoir, are true.

[...]In the "60 Minutes" interview, Davies described scaling the compound’s 12-foot wall during the attack and knocking one terrorist fighter to the ground with the butt of his rifle. He also spoke about seeing Stevens dead in the hospital, and said Stevens had expressed security concerns just hours before the attack.

But The Post obtained an incident report from Sept. 14, 2012, that revealed Davies provided his employer with a written account of the events that differed greatly from what he said on “60 Minutes” and in the memoir.

Davies told his employer, British-based contractor Blue Mountain, that he was at his beachside villa the night of the attack. He wrote that he tried to reach the compound but “could not get anywhere near” it because of roadblocks. And rather than finding Stevens in the hospital, Davies described learning of his death from “a Libyan colleague who had been at the hospital [and] came to the villa to show him a cellphone picture of the ambassador’s blackened corpse.”

Davies defended himself in the Daily Beast interview, saying he lied to his Blue Mountain superior because he had been instructed to stay away from the compound. Davies said he didn't write, and had not previously seen, the incident report, which is written in the first person.
