Benghazi Vs. Botched Execution
Something interesting to note: Liberals care a whole lot about a stone cold killer, a brutal man who repeatedly raped and sodomized a woman, shot her, then buried her alive, who saw his veins collapse during his execution, eventually leading to his death some 40 minutes later. On the other side is Benghazi, where 4 Americans lost their lives, including our Ambassador. There are still questions as to why no military assets were sent. Why the consulate was not secure in the first place despite the known breakdown in eastern Libya, despite the credible threats known days before. Why the talking points were changed to blame a video. And where Obama, the commander in chief was during the entire affair on September 11th, 2012. Heck, here’s Obama on the execution
(CNN) Calling a botched state killing in Oklahoma “deeply troubling,” President Barack Obama said Friday the federal government would review death penalty procedures around the country.
Obama said he’s asked Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct an analysis of how death row criminals are killed after an execution attempt in Oklahoma left an accused murderer writhing and convulsing following a lethal injection.
“I think we do have to, as a society, ask ourselves some difficult and profound questions around these issues,” Obama said during a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, while reaffirming his belief the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for certain crimes.
Liberal groups are Very Upset about the “botched” execution, as well. Here’s Think Progress on Benghazi
If you ignored the headline and are reading this anyway, you are part of the problem. Despite the fact that the last several resurgences have produced nothing that verifies the claims of the right wing, we’re once again forced to wade into the matter and endure at least the fifth round of grandstanding in a cycle that leads us no closer to actually solving the problems that Benghazi revealed.
The latest return of the assault that killed four Americans in a diplomatic outpost in the eastern Libya city to the public consciousnesses comes from conservative group Judicial Watch obtaining on Tuesday a copy of White House emails from the days after the attack through a FOIA request to the State Deparment. Now Republicans and conservative media have narrowed in on one in particular from Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes as the latest in a string of smoking guns that proves malfeasance on the part of the administration. So now, after 11 open hearings in the House of Representatives alone, scores of witnesses called for testimony, millions of dollars spent, and thousands of documents from the administration, we’re at the point where the Republicans are generally scraping the bottom of the barrel in formulating their reasons to keep the investigation alive.
According to them, like most Lefties, Benghazi is a big nothing. Why? Because they care more about protecting Obama than about 4 Americans murdered by Islamic jihadis. That is the only answer. This is politics for them. Consider Harry Reid, who decided that Benghazi is a Koch Brothers plot. The man needs a forced mental health exam. Of course, I don’t think there’s a provision in the Constitution to force elected legislators out for being bat shit crazy.
Of course, for many newspapers and media outlets, Benghazi isn’t even front page news. John Boehner is going to appoint a special council to investigate Benghazi, and neither NY Times nor Washington Post, among others, features the store on their front pages, web or dead tree, today. Both have stories featuring Obama on the “botched” execution. This goes the same for many other liberal media outlets.
They’ve even complained about Benghazi being a waste of time and money
“We’ve produced tens of thousands of documents. We’ve done nine hearings, 46 briefings,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters Friday. She called a select committee unnecessary: “How many more taxpayer dollars are we going to spend trying to prove a political point that in 18 months they haven’t been able to prove?”
Interesting. Democrats usually have no problem wasting lots of time and money. Of course, when the administration is stonewalling and hiding documents, yes, it will take a long time. Say, I wonder how much money could have been saved now had Obama and Clinton secured the Benghazi consulate and/or not decided to play this game of blaming a video?
