While my fellow Liberals are either in full denial or full cover-up mode, the truth about the disaster in Benghazi continues to leak out, exactly as I said it would last November, before the election. It's a painful, slow dripping process that now, obviously, involves a huge CIA cover-up.
Thankfully Jake Tapper, now a headline star at CNN is leading the charge and doing the heavy investigative lifting. Formerly with ABC News, Tapper is a journalist without a blemish on his record. And he has been both honest and objective about Benghazi since the very beginning.
Until this point the leadership in uncovering this scandal has fallen on Fox News and they've also done a superb job. But my fellow Liberals always doubt the veracity of Fox and don't trust the network. Having CNN at the lead adds much needed credibility for the left.
Whatever happened on the ground in Libya the night of September 11, 2012, it was either extremely illegal or would embarrass the USA in the middle east or world community. The CIA is attempting to cover this up using extreme measures. Eventually this will emerge as a scandal of monumental proportions.
President Obama could have avoided this entire mess if he had been both candid and honest in the first few days after the murder of our Ambassador and three other Americans. Certainly he did not have to release any confidential or restricted information. But instead he told a number stupid, bold faced lies and tried to misdirect the public and the press. He nearly destroyed Susan Rice's career in the process and Hillary Clinton is damaged, too. In fact, in my opinion, Clinton deserves even more blame the Obama for her part in the bizarre "video" lie and cover-up.
Readers of this blog know I have been a many year Hillary Clinton supporter, but I assure you I will never support or vote for her again. Her betrayal is unforgivable.
We can only guess at the truth right now and I'm not going to speculate. But the truth is coming. And Liberals and Progressives who have all claimed Benghazi is a "phony scandal" deserve the egg that is now all over their faces.
