Some things in life defy description. Yesterday, one of those things happened. Our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, finally put an end to her long, and often comical delay of answering any questions relating to the single worst foreign policy debacle since 1978. The tactics used to delay the on-the-record Q & A included birthday parties abroad for foreign dignitaries never before seen in the presence of any U.S. diplomat, let alone our very top one, faking several, as in more than two, illnesses which magically occurred at the last moment, and of course simply refusing to appear for months on end.
Of all of the quotes that came out of yesterday, this one has to be top of the list of any American who cares in the slightest about any reasonable semblance of accountability that our Executive Branch should be held to.
What’s the Difference why these people were killed?
Putting aside for the moment that righteous indignation is a faux tactic only ever employed by the incredibly guilty, I nearly jumped through the office television in a vain attempt to confront a woman who clearly holds a low opinion of the American People, those brave souls who died as a direct result of her incompetence, and more specifically the very few public officials who dared to ask questions of a member of the self anointed elite class of dictatorial rulers known as the Obama Administration.
Hillary hardly faced the tough questions yesterday that were deserved of such a travesty. Two, count them two Senators dared to cross that line separating fawning dotage and actual inquiry. Ron Johnson and Rand Paul seem to be the only two Senators on the Foreign Affairs Committee interested in understanding what accountability for the consequences of stupidity should look like.
Bear in mind that the whole goings on in Benghazi represent that rare instance in American political scandal where the crime was far, far, worse than the pitiful attempt at cover up. The crime was that we put into place the world’s dumbest foreign policy, a second time. Not content with the unmitigated disaster suffered time and again during the Carter years, the Kumbayah School of foreign policy again was instituted. Shockingly, the very same result was gleaned as the last time we tried to pretend that projecting American weakness abroad would really get our enemies to respect us. The plan was, that when we extended an olive branch to the Muslim world in response to their giving us the finger, they would suddenly realize that we meant them no harm, and Unicorns would begin shooting rainbows out of their hind parts, and all would be well in the world.
Unfortunately, that worked no better in 2012 than it did in 1978. Four Americans paid for the naivete with their lives, and the cover up of this stupidity went almost completely unreported by a sycophantic American Media.
The difference dear Hillary, and any who took the inexplicable position of championing her obfuscation today, is that these people died as a direct result of the idiotic policy agenda enacted by Hillary Clinton. Rather than beef up security in a world hot spot in response to the danger there, created by herself, She attempted to keep Americans from realizing that she had put our interests abroad in that danger. As a result, four people lost their lives, and after begging her to do something in order to help them stay safe.
The pitiful lies told by the Administration in the aftermath of this lunacy are only secondary to the real problem at hand. The real problem here is that our foreign policy is at best moronic, and at worst, treasonous. Pretending that Islamofascism does not exist will only lead to more of these disasters in the future. Guess what, we just sold these very same people in the Muslim Brotherhood some F-16′s.
Let’s not forget the small fact that the producer of that moronic film, seen by no one coincidentally, is still imprisoned, because apparently the First Amendment does not protect the rights of those who are a convenient scapegoat for our President.
We are halfway through this thing, officially on the back nine. Hunker down, thank God that it can all be corrected, and realize that no changes to our Constitution have been permanently enacted yet.
