The Truth of Benghazi

  You would think that in the aftermath of a third-rate burglary like Watergate, Politicians, and those who aspire to be, would have taken notice of the example that was made of Richard Nixon, and remember that the cover-up is always worse than the crime.
  Fast forward to September 11, 2012. When the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya was attacked and four Americans killed, including our Ambassador, the Obama administration was quick to explain that this "spontaneous" attack was the response to an anti-Muslim internet video. Well, facts have an ugly was way of showing themselves. We are finding out that officials in the State Department, the Pentagon, CIA, and various assorted other national security advisers, were watching real time video feed of the massacre, from drones hovering above the compound. We know that all of these individuals knew within hours that an Al-Quaeda related group had taken responsibility. They knew that several U.S Military re-enforcement options, including a Delta Force Team was available as close by as Kuwait. Air Craft Carriers in the Mediterranean Sea could have been on the scene within hours. They knew that, just maybe, September 11 might be a good day to plan ahead for a possible anniversary attack anywhere in the world, especially the Middle East.
  We know all of these things, but there are many questions that need to be asked. Why, first and foremost, did the President and everyone around him push the bogus video story when it was known what had actually taken place? Why is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sacrificing any political future she may have for Barack Obama? The history between the Obama camp and the Clintons is well documented. Who thinks that her sense of loyalty to the Obama administration runs that deep? Most important of all, who gave the command for the Military to stand down and not go in to rescue Americans who were under attack? There were three requests for Military back-up that were denied. Why?
  One of the most disturbing questions of all might be, is this all a case of astonishingly gross incompetence and criminal negligence on the part of a number of people, or a cover-up for political expediency 2 months out from an election? Of course the media is doing it's part by covering the story as little as possible. But the American people need to know if the President of the United States went to bed the evening of September 11 knowing that four brave Americans were dead and no one lifted a finger to prevent it.
  Richard Nixon once said that "...people have got to know whether or not their President is a crook...". They also need to know whether or not their President is a liar.
