Desperate Antics to Obstruct the Truth About Benghazi

The Democrats and their media acolytes who are pushing back against a full investigation of the Benghazi scandal are in full circle the wagons mode.  They are trying to make investigating this scandal into some sort of late night joke against Republicans, but instead are looking more desperate by the day.

Many Americans do not believe the Obama administration’s account of what happened leading up to and during the September 11, 2012 attack. They smell a cover up.  According to a Rasmussen poll earlier this month, 59 percent feel it is unlikely the administration has revealed all of the details surrounding the tragic attack.
 

“Seventy-two percent continue to believe that it is important to find out exactly what happened in the Benghazi matter, with 46 percent who say it is ‘Very Important.’ Twenty-five percent consider more information about the Benghazi case unimportant, up from 19 percent in January, but that includes just 7 percent who say it is ‘Not At All Important,’” said Rasmussen.

Distrust of the Obama administration was stoked by the recent revelation of an e-mail written by then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes showing White House involvement in concocting the bogus anti-Muslim video explanation for the killings.  The purpose of this intervention by the White House was to prepare then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice for her Sunday TV show appearances on September 16, 2012, with the goal of pushing the video narrative even though senior officials at the State Department and intelligence personnel on the ground knew early on that a pre-meditated terrorist attack was the real cause.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made a fool of himself yet again when he tried to claim with a straight face that the Rhodes e-mail had nothing to do with Benghazi. It’s all old news anyway, he intoned.

Bill Clinton has tried to blunt criticism of his wife’s conduct as Secretary of State by saying that the State Department’s own Benghazi investigation, which was led by retired Adm. Mike Mullen and former U.S. diplomat Thomas Pickering, “looked into what was wrong. They gave 29 recommendations. She took ‘em and started implementing them.”

That may be true, but Bill conveniently left out the fact that Hillary’s hand-picked Accountability Review Board failed to interview her. When she finally appeared before Congress to testify, Hillary responded to questions with a question of her own: “What difference at this point does it make?”

The mother of one of the Americans murdered in Benghazi by the jihadists, Sean Smith, refuses to accept such cold indifference. She wants the truth: “How can Hillary sit up there and say ‘What difference does it make,’ when she is the person that made the difference? She is the one that would not allow any security there; she is the one that was responsible.”

Bill Clinton’s defense of his wife’s lack of responsiveness to pleas for more security before the September 11, 2012 attack — despite repeated prior jihadist attacks on Western facilities and personnel — was to say that “No one had advance notice that this would happen as nearly as I can tell.” It must all depend in his mind on what the words “advanced notice” mean.

Susan Rice, now serving as President Obama’s National Security Adviser, wants to put her infamous Sunday show appearances behind her for good.  When asked at a foreign policy lunch on May 14th whether the House select committee investigation on Benghazi would reveal anything new, she flippantly responded, “Danged if I know.”  Actually, that’s the answer she should have given on those five Sunday talk shows if she had been asked why a UN ambassador with no knowledge of what happened in Benghazi was shoved in front of the cameras. She was sacrificed so that her boss Hillary Clinton, who had been briefed on what was happening in Benghazi in real time by the number two State Department official in Libya, Gregory Hicks, would not have to do the lying.
