The False Question of Benghazi

Hillary famously said about Benghazi, “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans.” “What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?”

Hillary is posing a false question.  It doesn’t make any difference whether it was protest or thugs out for a walk.  What matters is that she didn’t do her job and provide Stevens with proper protection.  If she had been vigilant, either the protest or the thugs would have been stopped.

It also matters that Hillary tried to minimize Al-Qaeda by emphasizing the silly video.  She and Obama had said that Al-Qaeda had been defeated and it was necessary for the prestige of their administration to maintain this myth.

Benghazi4Benghazi proved that our leaders were lying.  It was necessary for Hillary to pin it on the video rather than the supposedly defunct Al-Qaeda.

Hillary is right to the extent that the proximate cause doesn’t matter.  Where she is wrong is that the ultimate causes—Al-Qaeda and her negligence—do matter.

Hillary and Obama are at fault. The other excuses are false. The “video” and the “guys out for a walk one night” are not so meaningful. Giver her due in saying, “What difference does it make?” It doesn’t. 

What matters is that her negligence and pretending that she defeated Al-Qaeda shine a light on her irresponsibility. Hillary like her husband is gifted with excuses.  Remember, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

Bill lies.  It’s just sex and it involves his bad relationship with Hillary. She is present in his consciousness and inadvertently on the scene of the crime.

Hillary lies.  Christopher Stevens dies. Bill is a puppy dog.  Hillary is a pit bull biting out pieces of innocent lives, playing assassin behind the scenes.
