The Benghazi Fiasco

Utterly reprehensible. 

"The father of Tyrone Woods, the ex-Navy SEAL who died while trying to defend Ambassador Chris Stevens in the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, made the rounds of some radio shows yesterday, and the tale he told of his meetings with top administration officials doesn’t put any of them in a flattering light."

So, not only does it appear that an American ambassador was essentially sent on a suicide mission into Libya, we now, as each day passes, learn more and more about the despicable behaviour of senior administration officials in their limited and perversely inappropriate dealings with bereaved parents. 

From one bereaved father, we learn that the President could not look him in the eye and that he sensed no sense of remorse or sorrow from the country's leader.

We learn that the Vice President made a joke about his murdered sons' testicles and that Hilary Clinton vowed to jail the person who made the idiotic video that has been the scapegoat for the the second 9/11.

As I have said before, just when you think this administration has shown the most disgusting behaviour, and that it has sent a new moral low, lo and behold-new "accomplishments" are made.

This is a pitiful display once again from an administration that has no shame.


President Obama should resign, or be impeached. 

 "Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers."

This means that drones were sent in, in order to watch everything-but help was not.

I think that the reason why this is really doesn't have the appropriate amount of attention in the American media and in the general American conscioun is because the idea is almost too painful to fathom. That an American administration could watch its people die and not offer help is almost incomprehensible. It's easier to look away than to think about this.
