If you happened to read my post recently about the highly-touted “whistleblower” who appeared on Fox, you know I was less than impressed. Not because I don’t wish to see the truth about Benghazi come to light, rather I hope to see relevant testimony come forward. I think I can make a pretty safe bet that this isn’t it.
The GOP angle has become quite clear. Benghazi for them is merely a political opportunity to attempt to derail the Clinton 2016 candidacy before it ever gets legs. They know there isn’t any smoking gun to tie-in Obama who is a lame-duck anyway. So the next best thing is to tie Clinton in to the video cover-up and the non-response to the attacks in time to save lives.
The internet is strewn with stories today about the whistleblowers and the “explosive” testimony they are about to unleash. I have to go back to my post from October 18, 2012 – http://spellchek.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/the-true-benghazi-cover-up-means-asking-the-right-question/.
The media firestorm is all about the Obama cover-up of the response. It should be focused on why this ever happened because it stinks to high heaven. Ambassador Stevens is dead and it appears to me that it was intended to be that way. The testimony supports it. The events leading up to it supports it. The real question is why?
Despite all the attention that will be paid to Benghazi this week, we still won’t find out why. Nor will anyone even be asking the question. It just disgusts me. The GOP will be proudly displaying their badge of honor that they are fighting to get the truth out after all this time despite the Obama Administration doing their level best to just make it go away. Not in my book. The GOP may be doing all it can to score political points and better position themselves for 2016, but they aren’t pursuing the truth that really matters.
Don’t get me wrong. Tar and feathering Clinton for her involvement may be the best option the GOP has to take her down in 2016. Please proceed. But where is the ‘real’ investigation? I want to see the GOP pursue it with the same vigor they have for Clinton’s neck.
Investigate the gun trafficking and coordinating Jihadist fighters to Syria and al-Qaeda.
Investigate the CIA prisoner detention at the annex. Some speculate the NSA is behind all of it.
Investigate the survivors, how many, who they are, why they’re being silenced and what insight can they provide as to the above two questions.
Those are the core questions that will explain so much including the purpose of the U.S. special mission, the coordinated drawdown of security prior to the attacks and the lack of any aid once they commenced. This is where the real dirt is. And it’s why the GOP only gives it lip service. The truth will be extremely damning to the U.S. government and for a whole host of reasons the GOP doesn’t want it to get out any more than Obama does.
Once again, the American people are being snowballed. While the left and right have a political debate over Benghazi, the nasty, bitter pill that is the truth isn’t even up for discussion.
