My Benghazi Dream
In a perfect world this is how I would like the Benghazi scandal to play out.
All of us who were paying attention from day one, meaning September 12th, 2012 knew that our Embassy in Benghazi had been the subject of a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11. We KNEW it. Reports were coming out that Ambassador Stevens had been the victim of an attack and had been killed along with 3 other Embassy staff including 2 former Navy SEALs. Anyone who followed the news and the Middle East immediately labeled it terrorism.
We now know that the story of how and why this happened was fabricated for political reasons by the State Department and most probably, the White House. Terrorism was not even mentioned even though all of us knew it was the reason. The ridiculous story that was trotted out by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and then parroted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barak Obama was in the words of Gregory Hicks, “jaw dropping”. The “spontaneous demonstration in response to a vile video” seemed to be the mantra they would follow.
Well it is all unraveling right before their eyes. The whistleblowers testimony, the emails, the twelve talking points revisions, the contradicting testimony, the unanswered questions, it is all crashing down around them.
After Jay Carney’s pathetic attempt at a press conference in front of an unusually “hard hitting” group of journalists, you could see the panic beginning to set in. That line of sweat forming on his top lip as he danced his way around questions that he just had no answers for was probably just the beginning of anxiety attacks for him and this administration.
If you listened carefully however, through all of Carney’s doublespeak, you could hear that if anyone was going to take the fall, it would NOT be Obama. So, who will they sacrifice? All roads lead to Hillary.
Here is my dream of vindication for our four dead American heroes and for all of the patriots from Fox News and all of the Internet sources that have hung on to this story like a dog to a bone.
I dream that the Obama administration does everything in their power to distance themselves from anything that happened on that day. After all, we still don’t even know where he was or if he even talked to anyone regarding the attack. Nothing has been forthcoming at all. When the heat starts to get to close to the Oval office, Hillary Clinton will be thrown under the bus, along with all of her minions that scrubbed the talking points. Even if Obama helped scrub the CIA report, they will never be able to pin it on him, so Hillary will take the fall. Too bad about the 2016 election, but it has to be done.
When she sees this coming at her, the Clinton machine will go into action. There is no love lost between the Clintons and Obama, so I see a scenario where she will have no choice but self-preservation. If indeed the Republicans form a special committee and actually subpoena Susan Rice, Victoria Nuland and Hillary Clinton, I believe Clinton will say that “yes, the talking points were changed, but they were given final approval by the President”. She will say that she didn’t have that power.
There is no way that Clinton will go down without a fight. If she goes down, Obama goes with her. I don’t think he knows who he is dealing with when it comes to the Clintons. All of the pent up anger over him winning the nomination, her lifelong dream of becoming President being shoved aside for him will have come to a boil. She will not take the fall again, even if it jeopardizes her chances in 2016.
So that is my dream ending to Benghazi. The truth that will finally surface and take out two of the most corrupt, power-hungry people in government. The final curtain for an administration that didn’t care who was sacrificed in its quest for power.
The lies would finally be revealed, the American people would see them for who they really are, and the family and friends of the dead and all of the brave people who came forward to do the honorable thing would be vindicated at last.
Ah…but it’s only a dream, isn’t it?
