The “whistleblowers” in the Benghazi attack have finally been heard from. And the news is entirely unsurprising, though no less maddening for it.
The Administration knew the truth, even as the Benghazi attack was occurring. They deliberately misled the American people, and the Mainstream Media outlets were complicit in the cover-up that followed.
Not that anyone who paid the slightest attention to the events as they occurred and immediately after the death of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans had any doubt as to the deliberate falsehoods being promulgated by this Administration through the news media, who willingly and unquestioningly trumpeted those falsehoods. In addition to the media’s complicity in the Administration’s deliberate deceit, media personalities attacked those voices who were critical of the botched tragedy in Benghazi, and who were suspicious of the unconvincing tales being told by Administration officials.
The one I have the most contempt for is Marty Dempsey. He has shown himself time and again of questionable loyalty and lacking in integrity. He sold his honor cheap. And there is no recovering it from the bazaar of the political marketplace. He is unfit to lead, and no longer deserves to wear a uniform. He is despicable.
The individual with the most to lose is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who may yet see this testimony (which the mainstream media can no longer ignore) damage her chances as the Democratic nominee in 2016. Because it does matter, Hillary. And you know it.
The biggest hypocrite, however, is the sitting President. He spoke yesterday at Ohio State’s commencement, where he derided those voices who warn that government isn’t to be trusted. Perhaps his Attorney General, Eric Holder, can label any US citizen calling Barack Obama a hypocrite as an “extremist”, maybe even a “violent extremist”, and target them for death by Hellfire. The new, streamlined due process arrangement should make that easy enough.
So much for this democracy being “ours”.
