Worse Than Watergate!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Four Americans are dead and the American people are being lied to as to how and why they got that way.
the President is lying - and needs to be impeached, or he's NOT lying
-- and needs to be impeached -- because he DIDN'T know what was
Repeat: Four Americans are DEAD. And as much as it
pains me to say it -- it doesn't look as if our government made a
genuine effort to save them.
I have watched, listened, and read
as much as we have been allowed to know -- plus -- information gleaned
by non-mainstream media sources, and I concluded -- long ago -- that
there is a major cover-up at the top levels of the US government over
the incident in Benghazi.
Now, let me be clear: I am not an
investigative reporter. That is not what I do. I am a commentator -- an
opinion writer ... nothing more. I have deliberately "hung back" on
any in-depth comments on the Benghazi affair simply because there always
seemed to me to be more THERE there. In other words, it was obvious,
at least to me, that we were only getting drips and drabs of what really
happened and, I felt (and still do) that we have been told nothing of
WHY it happened. But, dear reader, even Helen Keller could see there
is a major cover-up surrounding the incident in Benghazi!
CIA "safe-house" has troubled me from the very beginning of this
horrible story. What was the CIA doing there? There was no embassy in
Benghazi. In fact, the building attacked was not even a consulate. If
anything, it was a "mission." Had it been an embassy, I'd not question
a CIA presence. They are practically a part of the furniture in any US
Embassy. But, as I said, this was NOT an embassy.
too, the last person our ambassador met with the evening of the attack
was a Turkish diplomat. What was a Turkish diplomat doing in Benghazi,
Libya, meeting with Ambassador Stevens at an unprotected site? Why not
meet in the embassy in Tripoli?
It now seems that the ex-SEALS
were not attached to the consulate, but were assigned to the CIA
"safe-house." They (laudably) went against orders and made a rescue
attempt of the US officials and staff at the consulate/mission -- and
lost their lives in the attempt.
There was quickly a fog of
misinformation spewed up and out by the Obama Administration in what --
in my opinion -- is an attempt to cover-up an on-going scheme/operation
to smuggle weapons into Syria through Turkey.
few weeks ago, there was a report that Libyan militia members had been
ordered to turn-in the weapons that had been supplied them in their
struggle to overthrow Qaddafi. That report confirmed that many of those
weapons had been turned in. Where did those weapons go? Perhaps, to
the Syrian rebels?
It has been suspected for some time now that
the US has been supplying small arms to the rebels in Syria for a while
-- even though the Obama Administration denies it.
It is the kind
of operation the CIA would be up-to-their-necks in and it would explain
their presence on the ground in Libya in a safe-house just a mile away
from the consulate/mission.
For the sake of argument, suppose the
guns gathered from the Libyan militia were being covertly sent to
Turkey and then smuggled across the Turkey/Syrian border to the Syrian
I continue to cycle back to the question -- WHY was the
Ambassador THERE , alone, without a security detail, at that particular
time, meeting with a high Turkish diplomat. Remember, this was on
September 11th. If there was going to be an attack by terrorists --
September 11th would be the day for it.
Now, I'm just
hypothesizing here. I have no idea, at this point, what was really
going on. But, I am confident there was a covert operation underway --
one so black that sacrificing the lives of four Americans was deemed
"worth it" by our leaders in Washington.
For whatever reason, the Obama Administration has chosen to tell the world a bald-faced lie about what happened in Benghazi.
politicians lie, right? Yeah, they do. But this time -- four Americans
are dead and the country wants to know why that happened and why the
Obama Administration chose to lie to us about it.
It is clear
now, that all the warnings from the political right about the penchant
of this President and his administration for lies was absolutely
correct. If they are lying about the "Incident in Benghazi," what else
are they lying about?
It is clear the Mainstream Media is NOT
going to cover this story. They are not going to investigate what
happened for fear that it will drive down support for Obama. They seem
to have taken the attitude: the truth, the welfare of the country, be
damned. Keeping their man, Obama, afloat is the most important thing,
bar none. Nothing can be allowed to interfere -- not even the truth!
Look. The cover-up of "Benghazigate" is far more important that Watergate ever was!
need a "Congressional Investigation" of the incident at Benghazi and we
need it post haste! If ever an incident deserved investigating by the
Congress this horrible event in Benghazi is it. Too, it is looking more
and more as if grounds for impeachment proceedings are present.
blowers, witnesses who claim to know the truth, are standing by having
already stated their willingness to testify before Congress, but they
are enjoined from such as a result of having signed documents that
prevent them from discussing the event(s) in Benghazi. They need to be
released from those bonds so we can get to the truth. One phone call
from the President would take care of it. Will he make the call? Don't
hold your breath.
Yes, if only Obama was a republican, there
would be no need for commentators to be begging the Congress to
investigate or opining at the reluctance of the MsM to investigate.
is what it is. The Mainstream Media in America is an organ of the
political left -- as is President Obama. There is simply no way we are
going to get anythng approaching impartial reporting or a REAL
investigation of Benghazigate from the MsM.
For me, it is not just a matter of trust, it is a matter of honor -- NATIONAL HONOR.
America deserves better than we have gotten, or, are likely to get from Obama.
