Honestly, every other blog is at risk of becoming redundant:
If it’s true — as it certainly seems to be — that the US had a fairly important arms supply line running from Benghazi and Triopli to Syria (via Qatar, Jordan, and Turkey), it at least suggests the White House should have had more security in the area to protect its people.
The main thing I think this article advances is the Phony Scandal Cover-Up motive. That is, why are the media so determined to label Benghazi a “Phony Scandal”? Apart from their reflexive need to praise their Hero God, I mean.
I have long thought that, behind the scenes, the Administration was telling reporters, sotto voce, “Well, you know we had a major CIA operation going on in Benghazi. And those darned Partisan Republicans just want to expose it, Because They Hate America.”
And then reporters, feeling all Trusted and Respected by their Boyfriend, dutifully run out to say, “Phony Scandal!”
That is in reference to a John Sexton’s Breitbart.com article about the real reasons for all the hush-hush on Benghazi. This is, as I said last month, “The Big Benghazi Secret,” except it isn’t really secret. Plenty of reporters have had the basic story (or part of it) for months.
Anyway, I’m sorry if it seemed like I was ignoring the news, but sometimes the media bias — Our Patiently Brilliant President, isn’t he so special? — is such a Hoover Dam bulwark against truth that I don’t even feel like complaining about it anymore.
Then I check in over at AOSHQ, and the dude is just killin’ it — knocking it out of the park like A-Rod in roid-rage mode — and I feel ashamed of myself for not at least trying to add something.
OK, so I tried. And now go read AOSHQ, because I do, every day.
