There are so many angles to this story that just makes one want to puke. Obama’s intentional disinterest in the security of diplomatic facilities in harm’s way; the complete failure of a Secretary of State and her department to adequately manage resources and the security of personnel in hostile environments; the intentional deluge of disinformation while withholding accurate information so as to distort perceptions for political advancement—this Administration has done what no other modern Administration has managed to do: Out-Nixon Nixon.
Richard Nixon’s crime was withholding and distorting information after the fact—the cover-up—but Nixon’s malfeasance never resulted in the deaths of a U.S. Ambassador and diplomats. Nixon didn’t obfuscate the deaths of American citizens, yet Obama has done just that. We, as a nation, should be furious at the persistent series of lies and distortions this Administration has pushed forward.
First, as Commander-in-Chief, it is Obama’s first responsibility to defend America and its interests, anywhere in the world. He isn’t expected to don body armor and head into the front lines, but he is supposed to be actively engaged in defending the nation. Yet, he completely failed to not only be engaged, but to even be interested:
We jokingly asked where the obligatory crisis room photo op is. Well, now we know why one was never put out—he never showed up. 3 AM phone call? Please…
I don’t think folks truly recognize how damning this statement is. Consulates and Embassies are SOVEREIGN territories of the state. That IS U.S. soil, and to not show ANY interest in defending it, let curiosity as to what the hell is happening on it WHILE being attacked is criminal. But this is just as damning for Clinton as it is for Obama—no call from the State Department was ever made for support:
The testimony from Panetta and Dempsey makes the completely absurd claim of “what difference does it make” all that much more damning.
The difference, you incompetent fucking hag, is that you CANNOT “figure out what happened” if you do not know what the cause of the attack was. And this wasn’t a protest that went bad, or a random act of violence against Americans in some foreign land: it was an ATTACK by AL-QAIDA against a U.S. CONSULATE on fucking SEPTEMBER 11th.
What has happened with regards to the Benghazi Consulate attack is criminal. Obama, Clinton, and multiple others in this Administration have been lying to the American people. Obama’s lies have been from the get-go because he knew his failures would likely result in his not getting re-elected: and he was probably right. So now we, trapped in an Administration that is failing on so many levels for all the wrong reasons, have to come to terms with the simple fact that Obama and his cronies need to be held accountable for the loss of life on the fateful day.
We should be furious. We should be repulsed. We should not let this go unanswered.
