Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi
Keep saying the name,even if you have to explain to LIV where it is and what happened there (and you will).
I hope this guy is right about the gathering storm of Benghazi ruining Hillary Clinton’s presidency hopes, and crippling Obama’s remaining time in office. We’ve gotten our hopes up before, but the press will cover for Obama, and Hillary’s lied before and gotten way with it …
That’s because, right from the jump, the administration has been lying through its teeth about what happened on the night of Sept. 11, 2012 — the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, as it happens. It transparently lied about the Mohammad video, threw the scapegoated filmmaker in jail (where, last time I looked, he still is), and convened a bogus “accountability” board to whitewash the whole damn thing so as not to disrupt the precious Narrative that Osama was dead and al-Qaeda was on the run.
It was all a lie, of course, and some of us knew it at the time. I wrote about it repeatedly on the Post’s Op-Ed page: you can find examples here, here and here. In this case, however, what happened in Benghazi, Foggy Bottom, the White House, and the Obama re-election campaign headquarters in Chicago was (as the saying going) worse than a crime: it was a blunder. And that blunder may now bring down the man who never should have been president in the first place, for grotesque dereliction of his duty as commander-in-chief[.]
But Obama couldn’t be bothered at the time, because 1) it didn’t fit one of the narratives he using in his re-election run and 2) he had a big fundraiser the next day and needed his beauty sleep (Hey, can I just eat my waffle?)
And hell is what is coming, one way or the other, because this time — unlike the Clinton impeachment — the big dogs are in play, in the form of hordes of very pissed-off special ops agents, patriotic spooks, forcibly retired generals and clandestine operatives who know where the bodies are buried. If the Obama administration turned its back on Chris Stevens and the three other brave Americans who died that day for crass political purposes — and, worse, if it let them die as collateral damage in its own gunrunning operation to Syria — the men and women who stand watch for this country all through the night are going to come out of the shadows, quickly.
Worse than Watergate.
