Benghazi Cover-up Hearings Charade For Doing Nothing
My friends and many of my readers know that I do not do compromise nor do I capitulate. I don’t bargain with the enemy nor make deals with them. And under no circumstances do I allow myself to be dissuaded to go along with something I know or believe to be wrong. Recently a friend for whom I have a tremendous amount of respect learned a bitter lesson pursuant to my reasoning for same.
My friend is a school board member, and two years ago complained to the rest of the school board that a certain teacher was having his students engage in material that had serious sexual overtones to it. My friend wanted the teacher fired at that time, but the administrators and other board members ignored his warnings.
Fast forwarding to the present, the same teacher whose behavior the school board ignored and permitted to continue teaching in the same school district has now been arrested and “charged with 22 offenses including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and indecent assault of a victim under age 16, sexual assault, corruption of a minor and reckless endangerment.”
My friend is devastated that he didn’t persevere and force the school district to get rid of the teacher. He has reminded the school board that he warned them about the homosexual pedophile teacher. The obvious tragic truth is my friend tried warn these feckless board members, but they elected to do nothing until a child was brutally and repeatedly violated by the teacher.
The school board’s behavior is analogous to the politicians who have been elected and reelected. My friend’s experience should be a first person example of why we should not capitulate to the will of politicians.
Let me for the record make it absolutely clear that my friend is no shrinking violet. My friend is a hard-nose conservative and a principled individual. Which is why I was surprised when they told me what happened.
It is imperative that we stand up to politicians and refuse to back down. We owe it to our Founding Fathers and to our children and grandchildren. We owe it to our fellow Americans who do not see the danger and/or those who are easily persuaded to go along with what is obviously not good for America.
I have been warning about Benghazi. And my friend’s experience is an example of why we must demand Obama and Hillary Clinton pay for their misdeeds pursuant to the murder of Ambassador Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty.
The thing that matters in this hearing is not the cover-up as such. Going down that rabbit hole will result in obfuscation, misdirection, and the resignation of low-level bureaucrats who resign with their pensions and severance packages intact.
What matters is that Obama and Hillary Clinton allowed four brave Americans to be brutally sodomized and murdered when they could have intervened to rescue them in a moment’s notice. And then they enlisted Susan Rice to go on talk shows and knowingly spread a lie.
Pursuing the cover-up alone is setting the stage for someone else to take the fall for the actions of Obama and Clinton. We have seen this kind of dog-and-pony show before. It is what politicians do when they want to make a show of pretending to be hard at work on behalf of the nation when in reality what they are doing is theater and amounts to nothing.
As I have been saying, we’ve seen this act before — it was called the hearings held for Fast and Furious. When politicians are serious about making the right people pay for their misdeeds, we see Watergate-type hearings and Clinton impeachment-type hearings.
In my opinion, it’s not the cover-up it’s the murders. They not only could have been prevented but also there is credible reason to believe Obama watched our fallen heroes murdered in real time.
Regret for allowing themself to be silenced will be my friend’s companion for a long time to come. The school board members will in no way feel the same sense of failed responsibility my friend will experience knowing that they failed a child they could have protected.
Politicians involved in the Benghazi cover-up hearings will be no different from those school board members. The school board members will rationalize their refusal to listen to my friend under the cloak of we didn’t have enough information, etc., etc. The politicians involved in the cover-up hearings, if they do anything at all, will boast of their pontifications and possibly having a scapegoat take the fall.
It is imperative that we not allow talk news programs, talking heads, and political talking points to prevent us from demanding the right people (read Obama and Clinton) be made to pay for the murders of Woods, Stevens, Doherty, and Smith. If we allow this theater to distract us from what is truly important then, unlike my friend, our guilt will not be that we didn’t persevere rather it will be that we didn’t even bother to object.
