It’s been a while since I have written about the Benghazi attack and the Obama administration’s apparent attempt to cover up the truth of that preventable tragedy.
When White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was recently asked at a press conference about new developments in the Benghazi terrorist attack, Carney implied that the subject was not worthy of discussion because “Benghazi happened a long time ago.”
Now let’s remember that four Americans were murdered during that September 2012 attack. Would Carney use the same lame dismissal that Newtown “happened a long time ago” if a journalist raised a question about the Newtown School Massacre? It’s likely Carney would lose his job if he acted as smug and callous in dismissing a question regarding the mass murder of school children. But Benghazi is different.
The reason why Obama administration officials have been acting out so strangely every time Benghazi is brought up is because they fear the truth getting out about their failure to protect our consulate in Libya and their subsequent effort to cover up their failure in an attempt to regain the White House.
The narrative that Obama had killed Bin Laden and crushed the terror networks was essential to winning back the White House. The truth about Benghazi threatened that. Once again, it was politics and personal ambition above all else. When political careers take precedence over the safety and security of Americans, Americans are sure to suffer or even die.
Let’s hope the testimony later this week from officials within the State Department will help us get closer to truth about Benghazi. If they confirm what many of us believe, the people involved in this cover up need to be held responsible. Hillary in 2016? Maybe not….
