The national shame of Benghazi

Each day that passes without clarity on the American deaths in Benghazi is another day of shame for the Obama Administration.

For anyone with half a brain, there can be no doubt that the White House played politics with the tragic events on Sept. 11. The president, during the re-election debates, and the former CIA director both said they knew immediately it was terrorism and not the fault of a protest about a video that went out of control.

In fact, there was not even a protest in Benghazi that night.

Yet, for weeks afterward, the president, the president’s White House spokesman, Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice said it was an out-of-control protest over a video.

On it’s face, the Obama White House is clearly involved in a cover-up of something. Exactly what remains unknown. My guess is that it has something to do with what the president did, or didn’t do, the night we watched our ambassador and three others die in a prolonged firefight in Benghazi. Instead of doing all they could do to rescue our men, I think it’s a good bet that the president slept through it. The next morning he got up, stretched, had breakfast, held a brief, no-questions-asked press conference and then flew to Las Vegas to campaign for re-election.

I could be wrong. In fact, I’d like to be wrong. But you tell me, why at this late date don’t we know exactly who did what that night? On the night the Administration assassinated Osama bin Laden, the White House tripped over itself to give the blow-by-blow details. On Benghazi, nobody’s got nuthin’ to say.

Something just does not add.

Adding to the tragedy is the way the families have been treated. I invite you to read this story about how the families have been kept in the dark.

It’s all a tragedy and a national disgrace.
