The Naked Truth: Petraeus Scandal Is All Too Convenient
Benghazi. Does that name ring a bell? With all the talk about the Petraeus sex scandal, the media has given little attention to the attack that left four American’s dead. Do we not care about Chris Stevens, the American ambassador who was dragged into the streets of Benghazi to be sodomized and murdered by terrorist thugs? Does the truth behind it all matter? Of course it matters to you. But someone wants you dazed, confused and distracted.
Benghazi has not gone away. And there are some of us who will not let it go away. What I find laughable is that as recently as three weeks ago, long after the truth about the attacks had surfaced, I was still reading stories that referenced this idiotic online video as the “cause” of the violence in Benghazi that led to the killing. Yes, the mainstream media really thinks you are that stupid.
While everyone is so pre-occupied with Petraeus’ apparent inability to keep his pants zipped, he and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have managed to do what no ‘average Joe’ would be able to do-dodge a congressional investigation. Both were scheduled to testify before congress on the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. Both have been given a pass, Petraeus for obvious reasons and Clinton because, well, it’s apparently just not convenient for her at this time.
Clinton has taken full ownership of the attacks in Benghazi, even though they are not hers and hers alone. She attempted to fall on the sword. Clinton told CNN on October 15:
"I take responsibility…I'm in charge of the State Department's 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision."
Sorry, but I’m not buying that, not one bit. If you know about the baby, you have to know about the bath water. Clinton’s political capital shouldn’t be worth a warm bucket of spit after this mess. My guess is that she can kiss any future White House bid goodbye. But I also would have guessed the economy, unemployment, the tax demon known as Obmacare and Benghazi would have combined to amount to Obama’s Waterloo. Obviously, things worked out a bit differently. Both Petraeus and Clinton will eventually have to testify, even if it takes a subpoena to make it happen.
Obama’s victory last week, such as it is, must not stop American’s from getting to the truth. Benghazi was not a protest gone awry as the administration first tried to portray it. This was a planned, calculated attack by people who hate America and all that she stands for. Our death, our destruction, is what they have sought all along. We’ll be attacked again, and again, and again. Obama will lie and you will be expected to believe him. There's little question now as to what really happened in Benghazi. Now, it's down to the details: who knew what and when did they know it.
The timing of the Petraeus scandal is suspect. What does Petraeus have to say on Benghazi? Petraeus personally traveled to Libya to investigate the attack. What did he uncover that would have made his testimony so damming for the Obama administration? Bill Clinton was a letch, a man who sexually harassed a young White House intern and was even impeached. But the democrats went above and beyond to save ‘ole Bubba. Petraeus, who’s behavior may be no less reprehensible, doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell. The Republican Party has been temporarily muted by the election and the Obama administration will almost certainly do all that it can to squash his impact on Benghazi. Looks like they’re off to a good start, wouldn’t you say?
