Benghazi: The Impeachy-Keen Cover-Up That Just Won’t Die
According to White House Press Sec. Jay Carney the other day when somebody from FOX News dared ask a question regarding Benghazi at the daily press briefing, "Benghazi happened a long time ago". In the Obama Administration Thesaurus that equals then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's "What difference does it make?!?" outburst in front of Congress a couple months ago. That's just wonderful if you are not the family of either of the four dead Americans (or current U.S. diplomats, and/or their the families, in dangerous posts around the globe), but the administration (and its media) that just wants it to go away.
Doug Ross offers, "DAMNING: The Complete Benghazi Timeline in Spreadsheet Format". Go to the link to see the entire spreadsheet. WOW!
It is now clear to me that:
a) Hillary Clinton lied under oath to Congress.
b) Barack Obama went to sleep knowing that a U.S. Ambassador and other Americans were under terrorist attack.
c) Barack Obama awoke refreshed the next day to begin fundraising.
d) The entire Executive Branch lied repeatedly to the American people to save Obama's chances for reelection.
Could someone drag John Boehner out of whatever bar he's in, wake him up, and let him know: There is more than enough material for impeachment proceedings to begin and criminal charges levied against Hillary Clinton.

On October 27th, 2012, only days before the presidential election, I wrote:
If Barack Obama is reelected, will he face impeachment over Benghazi — a yet more unpleasant and far more wrenching result than to lose an election?
It could happen — and in my estimation should happen — the way revelations are playing out over the bloody terror attack that took four American lives and has led to weeks of prevarication and obfuscation. [...]
That post was a follow-up to my item from the previous week saying that Obama should resign over Benghazi, which was linked to by Drudge, and created a minor brouhaha. Between those two posts, a number of people accused me of being overheated. I even started to feel that way myself. (Hey, I’m a screenwriter. Dramatic license comes with the job description.)
No longer. Reading Stephen F. Hayes’ new article in The Weekly Standard — “The Benghazi Talking Points” — I am beginning to feel like Nostradamus. I’m not ready to make any predictions, but let’s put it this way…
Barack Obama is bloody lucky he’s a Democrat, because if he were a Republican, he’d be in deep trouble right now, close to the brink of extinction. Only his increasingly pathetic loyal media claque can save him. It will be interesting to see if they do so at the expense of their own reputations.

Three whistleblowers (those who managed to escape death on 9/11/12 from the Benghazi attack, completely because of the former Navy SEALS who stood their ground while repeatedly yelling for help from the administration, and continually being told to "Stand down" ... for hours until they were killed) are set to testify at a hearing before Congress next week. The administration is already trying to smudge the reputations of those diligently involved in looking for and demanding the truth. The whistleblowers identities were revealed today.
Ace of Spades HQ also had a nice lay-out of this as it was "Flaming Skull" Breaking News yesterday afternoon, in which Ace put it simply:
What difference does it make?
That's an odd question-- if it made no difference to you, Hillary, why did you lie about it?
It's a very strange assertion to make that something doesn't matter if that same person spent hours and hours crafting a lie about that something.
This is not going away because it should not.
P.S.: This post would not be complete without pointing out MSM malpractice. In addition to ignoring the Benghazi story and cover-up all these months, NBC once AGAIN selectively edits and manipulates context of a video in order to push an agenda. This time Joe Biden was speaking at a memorial for the four Americans killed in the Benghazi terror attack. The editors at NBC selectively pulled parts of the video and used it to claim Biden was pushing for more gun control. You can see both the edited and full videos here.
