Yesterday’s blockbuster release of a Ben Rhodes e-mail took the media by surprise yesterday, which had for months shrugged at demands to ask more questions about Benghazi. That was old news until the September 14, 2012 memo from the White House adviser surfaced, stipulating that Susan Rice’s appearances on news programs less than two days later had the goal of convincing people that the attack that killed four Americans was not brought on by “a broader failure of policy,” by stressing that “these protests are rooted in an Internet video.” The White House had insisted for almost a year that it had released all of the communications relating to the Rice talking points, both to Congress and the press.
Congress got surprised by this release as well. Eli Lake reports for the Daily Beast that the Oversight Committee, which has been probing Benghazi, only received this e-mail two weeks ago:… .
So what happened? Sometimes when investigating a criminal act the police look for wild explanations to explain the elements of the crime. Usually though, there isn’t some fanciful conspiracy but just a straightforward criminal acting like a criminal. A straight line effort.
Here we see a pretty simple explanation as to why it happened the way it did. It was about making sure Obama was reelected and Hillary gets her shot in 2016. Benghazi would potentially blow up both efforts. So they defused it with a conspiracy of lies. And they got away with it!
Their hopes now is that so much time has passed, and there are so many others screw ups to deal with- like Obamacare- that we won’t care the President lied and cheated to get what he wanted. Then again, in this administration if somewhere were to say the President lied and cheated the question would which event are they talking about. Obama makes Bill Clinton look like Pope John Paul II. When Bill was lying it usually dealt with him trying to hide a girl. When Obama is lying it is about shifting fundamental control and power to a government his people will enjoy running for a generation. Totally different agenda, and one he wasn’t going to be derailed from accomplishing over a few dead good men.
I hope this haunts this administration forever. Nobody should be able to get away with this callous kind of politics, because the crime here is better men died to keep a fool in power.
