Two months before Obama’s reelection, an Islamist attack in Libya killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador. This truth is just beginning to come out:
- Security preparations were poor. Incompetent.
- Our government refused to send help during the attack. Cowardly.
- Afterwards the Obama administration manufactured misleading stories to save Obama’s reelection. This is a classic cover-up. Criminal conspiracy and impeachable offense.
These are three separate events. Yet they are being mashed together in the media. This makes them more difficult to understand and unravel.
The first two are planning and execution challenges. They can—with some effort—be analyzed and corrected. The last issue is more complex.
Obama won the 2012 election by a popular vote margin of just 3.8%. That means if only 2% of the voters switched their vote, Obama would have lost. So his Administration’s cover-up was the pragmatically correct thing to do. It likely saved Obama’s reelection.
This cover-up is also criminal and hateful to everything we stand for as a free people.
Obama can never be elected again, so who cares? We should because if he gets away with this crime, he will continue to use such tactics to push his agendas, agendas repugnant to most voters. Examples are ObamaCare, failure to constraint resident Islamist terrorists, redistribution of wealth, endless expansion of government and job-killing regulation.
As Congress moves forward with its investigation—Benghazigate, if you will—one is reminded of these satirical project steps:
Step 1: Unlimited enthusiasm
Step 2: Total disillusionment
Step 3: Utter chaos
Step 4: Search for the guilty
Step 5: Punishment for the innocent
Step 6: Promotion of nonparticipants
Let us hope Congress does not fall into this hole. Rather, that they prove this self-serving conspiracy of Obama and his fellow travelers.
Such is vital for the health and security of each of us.
