Here’s My Two Cents: We’ll NEVER Find Out What Happened in Benghazi!
The political junkie in me is glued to the tube watching Secretary of State Clinton testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
And nothing makes my blood boil faster than media bias. Both sides folks, so don’t get testy. Fox is just as bad as MSNBC; they both report their version of the story and not the actual story. So this morning I knew nothing was going to change as all three major news networks led with this as their headline:
REPUBLICANS DEMAND ANSWERS FROM CLINTON.
Now, I ask you, as an American, shouldn’t we ALL demand answers from Clinton? No matter your party? I don’t understand the love fest by the Democrats nor the stupid questions about Ambassador Rice from the Republicans but no real questions about how this actually happened. Only the platitude, “make sure it doesn’t happen again.” UGH.
As of this writing, Secretary Clinton (who, I should add, I think has done an admirable job, up until Benghazi!) says ”the picture in Benghazi is still complicated and clouded.” Other Clinton quotes so far.
Terrible tragic time
Elevate the discussion so everyone’s on the same page to avoid less optimal decisions
We didn’t have a clear picture
Benghazi joins a long list of tragedies
But now, John McCain is asking pointed questions. Real questions. Yes, I know, he’s a Republican, but he’s asking questions that a Democrat would want to know the answers too. Four months later we still don’t know what happened. Clinton plainly says she “doesn’t agree”. She didn’t answer one of his questions.
So the deaths of four Americans goes unsolved, not that we can’t unearth the details, but that politics gets in the way. Perfect example, Senator Durbin from Illinois is on a rant about Bush’s statement of Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. See, it’s all about politics, not getting answers.
