And the 3,000 Americans in the 2001 terrorist attack in New York weren’t murdered either. They mostly died of smoke inhalation as well or blunt force trauma. And JFK wasn’t murdered either. He just happened to get in the way of a couple speeding projectiles. (Or was it just one?)
So here’s Eleanor Clift with The Daily Beast, commenting on the Benghazi incident, something she probably views as a non-scandal, a non-event:
I don’t think we’ll ever be allowed to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi. The incident goes way beyond “Republican versus Democrat” political games.
The Obama administration would like to be able to sweep the incident under the rug, because if there were a truly independent investigation into this CIA annex in Benghazi, we’d likely find that there were illegal actions taking place there. Perhaps the State Department under the direction of Hillary Clinton was using Chris Stevens to gather leftover weapons from Gaddafi’s regime and traffic them across the Turkey-Syria border to terrorists operating in Syria. His “ambassadorship” was merely his diplomatic cover.
The current administration and the media would rather things remain as they are, superficial political games that can be blamed on Republicans or Democrats, than for Americans to find the truth about what the U.S. government does behind the scenes around the world, regardless of what political party happens to be in power.
