Obama’s Inconvenient Benghazi

Posted by madjillmom on May 20, 2014

Benghazi is an inconvenience for Barack. Too bad. Here is how it seemed to go down.

Obama decides to go into Benghazi because there were reports on TV that thousands were being killed by Colonel Gaddafi. We were told that the bodies were stacking up. We didn’t see them, but that was what we were told. Worried that this might be a Rwanda thing, Pres. Obama decides, on his own, to go in with air strikes.

It was supposed to take a few weeks, but it took 6 months. Costs explode due to the time it took. Obama thought this would be a slam dunk and it was the right time, not to close to re-election. This was the first inconvenience about Obama’s policy.

Colonel Gaddafi is shot in a ditch. Obama calls it all good.

OK, so now some more inconvenience comes Obama’s way. Libya has been spiraling downhill since Obama called it all great. Weapons given to fight Gaddafi have fallen into the wrong hands. There are lots of attacks. Attacks on diplomats. Great Britain pulls out. There are even attacks on the compound in Benghazi. But nothing is done. The State Department and Hillary are very busy traveling the world and putting in very expensive electric car charging stations in Europe.

It is about 6 weeks out from the 2012 election, and things are about to get really inconvenient for Barack. The Benghazi compound is attacked and overrun with the Ambassador in residence. Why was he there on 9/11? There is very little security, even though the Ambassador has been asking for more over and over again. Ambassador killed, another American killed. Fight goes to CIA Annex next. Two more Americans killed. No response from the military. Was Obama too busy to order the military to the area to dissuade further killings? Obama is probably working on debate prep. He has a campaign event tomorrow in Las Vegas. Gosh, darn. This is really inconvenient. Thank goodness the press is in his corner. They spend 3 days castigating Romney for his comments on the death of 4 Americans rather than investigating what the President and the administration was doing about the attack.

The White House goes into Campaign mode. Quick, blame the video. Tell the families that they died because a Coptic Christian put up a video that Islam finds offensive. Make a commercial for $70,000 to run in Pakistan even though you know that the video wasn’t he problem. Send Susan Rice out to lie. Monkey with the talking points. Take out anything that makes Obama or Hillary look bad. Gosh, this is darn inconvenient, but it seems to be working.

Even a year later, let Hillary pull out the lie before congress. What does it matter now? Obama won reelection. Why sweat it. Don’t give the memos to congress, just keep stalling until you can say “Dude, that is like two whole years ago.”

Oh, so inconvenient for Obama. His mini-war has wrought death and distraction, lies and more lies. Today, Libya is in great turmoil. Will Obama take some of the credit for it? Because the deaths now in Libya and most of the carnage in Syria are a direct result of Obama’s foreign policy “doctrine”. After Libya, and Obama’s chosen action there that went bad and is still going bad, Obama is so impotent in Syria. He draws red lines and blood runs down the street. The bodies are really stacking up in Syria.

Lots and lots of questions unanswered about Benghazi. Lots of chaos still there and all over Libya. Lots of killing in Syria. How very inconvenient.

    The military has said time and again that there were no military resources available to respond and that to try to send troops from Tripoli would have made the problem worse.

    What questions are unanswered in Benghazi?
