A few weeks ago, I listened as Charles Krauthammer told us that the Obama Administration had successfully run out the clock on the political implications so richly deserved by the Benghazi disaster. He was not in favor of that end mind you, he just felt that the John Boehner led House of Representatives had screwed up sufficiently to allow something to pass that should not have been afforded that status. Unfortunately for Team Zero, private citizens in this nation lost their faith in politicians long ago. A group of private citizens, specifically Judicial Watch, won a court battle related to a Freedom of Information Request, and forced Team Zero to hand over all internal communications relating to Benghazi. Those internal communications are to say the least somewhat illuminating. For not only have they served to confirm the very worst of any and all lines of conjecture in terms of how cheaply the President, Secretary of State, and their entire teams viewed the lives of American Citizens working on their behalf, they also highlighted the fact that those lives were sacrificed purposefully, in order to keep hidden the abject failure of The Zero's foreign policy. By the way, should we put Candy Crowley's picture on the milk carton now, or wait for the official report of her disappearance?
Usually, when Charles Krauthammer says or writes something, I pay attention. His insights into other matters have earned him, at least for me personally, a level of respect, a sort of tacit acceptance of his point of view, unless I have sufficient reason to show otherwise. This is one of those times. There is a reason why, in our criminal justice system, the crime of murder has no statute of limitation in regards to prosecution. If someone commits the ultimate crime, there is no sufficient passage of time possible, where we will no longer hold them to account once caught and brought to justice. Make no mistake about it, what ever else Benghazi represents, it involved the murder of American Citizens. The Obama Administration, and our President himself, are complicit in those murders, and as such, deserve no limitation of time for which they can be held to account for those crimes.
It is in that context that I'd like you to watch the next video. When asked about the night that the President of the United States had four citizens killed in order to perpetuate the myth that Al Queda was decimated and how spectacularly his foreign policy had failed the national security interests of the United States, Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor said, "dude, it's like two years ago."
This whole, it's old so move on thing is an oft used tactic by the current group of miscreants who hold the levers of power within the halls of our Executive Branch. Screwing us, and then running out the clock is the chosen methodology to transform our nation from a constitutional republic into a Socialist Worker's Dystopian Nightmare. The phrase, "It's done, let's move on already," will undoubtedly adorn the arch way into the Obama Library. There's a reason why Team Zero sent a prepubescent acne ridden teenager to deliver their message complete with snark and a smugness more apt to spur a violent reaction than substantive debate. That reason is that they wish to simply dismiss inquiry, rather than answer it. "Dude, it was like two years ago," ranks right up there with, "what difference at this point does it make," in terms of the complete dismissal of any attempt to present accountability to this current regime. You little people, who are no more than the subjects formerly known as American Citizens, have no actual standing to petition your government for a redress of grievances. Be gone with you peasants!
I would just like to point out here, that the political left has always used as their default qualification for being put in charge, their unparalleled caring and bigger than ours hearts. When ever, and this happens each time we follow their policies to the inevitable conclusion that such policies produce, we question their results, they will say, "but we care so much more than you do, and our intentions were good." So, exactly how does Benghazi square with that, not to mention the callous manner with which any inquiry into that crime has been handled?
Thanks to the efforts of private citizens, specifically Judicial Watch, our House Leadership has finally agreed to do something beyond holding some useless Congressional Hearing. They've appointed a select committee with subpoena power to conduct an actual investigation and prosecute criminal behavior. For those who poo poo the concept of a Select Committee, I would remind you that it was the Watergate Select Committee that succeeded in forcing Richard Nixon to leave town. I am not suggesting that Barack Obama will be forced from office as a result of this, but I am suggesting that for the first time during his reign, Emperor Obama will be held to account for something. That's a start.
