Strawman: Victims in the White House
7 months ago
Intel, the abbreviation for intelligence, seems to be in short supply in Washington these days. Some people get it, some people don’t and some people choose to re-write it before the ink is dry. Consider this; the current administration is still “waiting for more information” on the events that took place in Benghazi on 9/11/12 some thirty plus days after the event. These poor victims—the administration--just can’t figure out what happened. No one will tell them. Nobody! According to Joe Biden; they didn’t know there weren’t demonstrations in front of the embassy and they didn’t know Ambassador Stephens had requested additional security. Nobody told them!!! We’re victims here……C’mon!!!
So how is it members of the State Department--- while under oath at the Congressional hearings this past week—stated they were in contact with the embassy during the attack and had first-hand knowledge of pretty much all that was occurring there. How did someone way below the pay grade of Mr. Obama, Biden and Mrs Clinton know more than they did? Are we to believe that those members of the State Department then chose to sit on the information and not tell a soul for 3 weeks? Are we to believe that no one higher than the custodial department was privy to this intel? Well, that’s what you and I—and the liberal press—have been fed by the White House since September 12th, so it has to be true—right?
So, riddle me this Batman, if that intel was being saved up for a rainy day, who’s the genius who came up with the story about the “Muslim hating video” that supposedly was the cause for all this? Surely the person who discovered “the video” has gotten an award, a gold star or at least a free foot long from Subway for this great piece of detective work? Maybe it was Valerie Jarrett or Van Jones or Stephen Chu who, while surfing YouTube for some of Obama’s greatest speeches, stumbled upon this hate filled movie trailer that almost caused the end of the world? Yeah, that has to be it.
Which leads to this question; who delivered the news that “the video” was the cause? Who in the White House has that much clout –is so convincing—has so much credibility-- that EVERYONE at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue fell right in lock step and bought in completely? This intel—this incredible bit of information—was so good—so compelling that the President and all his minions traveled far and wide to tell us of the great injustice our country had committed. Nationally televised programs, U.N. speeches—anywhere and everywhere—it’s the video. Heard or seen anyone fitting that description? Me neither.
Here’s the conclusion I’ve drawn from this most recent incident, and others over the past 4 years; this administration isn’t qualified to lead. This administration, under the guise of “waiting until we know more”, chooses not to make a decision. They have an agenda to push—and if the facts don’t support the agenda—those facts are pushed aside and you and I are served a crap sandwich and a side order of lies—courtesy of the liberal press—America’s fourth branch of government.
Remember the 3am phone call ad Hillary ran against Obama in 2008-the one that questioned Obama’s ability to be the man? I think, by now, we should all have come to the conclusion that if there actually were a 3 am phone call—this administration would let it go to voice mail.
