It’s almost one year since the murder of four citizens at the annex in Benghazi, Libya.
In what has turned out to be a concerted effort to distract everyone from what happened, the feckless administration in Washington and it’s minions in the press have turned the discussion to a host of other topics. Gay marriage, Trayvon Martin, illegal aliens, and the list goes on. Let’s not forget Alex Rodriguez and other completely unimportant sports issues that take their place in the rotation.
A year has come and gone and we still don’t have any straight answers on what happened that night. We still have no accountability – the four State Department employees who were sent off on a paid exodus have all been assigned to new jobs and evidently admonished to be good little ducks. There is no explanation as to why our military didn’t/couldn’t/wasn’t allowed to respond to an assault on a United States diplomatic facility.
It makes a lot of difference. Because the same band of liars (proven by the repeated telling of the youtube video story as the reason for the attack) who have covered this up for the last year are now telling you that we need to go bomb Syria to stop the use of chemical weapons.
There is a complete lack of credibility in this administration. And, an almost complete lack of courage among the opposition in demanding the truth. Courtemanche’s theorem applies to Benghazi as well as to all else this administration has done: If Lindsay Graham, John McCain, and Barack Obama all agree on something, it’s a horrible idea. All three have been silent of late on Benghazi. I take that as agreement.
Tomorrow we’ll examine the whole thing in a bit more detail. Today, just listen to the increasing drum beat as the same administration that lied about Libya lies about Syria. War drums never sound all that great, today they sound worse than ever.
