When Benghazi happened back in September of 2012, I reported about the special forces groups within the distance to respond, and now Congress appears to finally be catching up since a whistleblower opened the can and spoke up about it.
We have waited for a long time for action, and it seems that Congress and this administration are taking their sweet time delivering answers to the American people.
In a recent press briefing, White House Spokesman Jay Carney stated that “It happened a long time ago..” as if to say there is nothing to see here and the American people, as well as the families of the four Americans killed should just move on as if nothing happened.
The hypocrisy of such a statement is mind boggling, because this administration seems to focus on the past anyways. They still continue to blame George Bush more than four years later, and even during the campaign they were talking about Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s dog on top of the car and allegedly finding someone Governor Romney bullied almost fifty years ago.
So it hasn’t been that long since the terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate happened when you use the same measurement standards this administration uses when placing blame or digging up dirt on political opponents.
I for one would like to see a select committee investigate finally, and get the answers the American people have been demanding. I would also like to see the ring leaders of the attack in Benghazi brought to justice as President Obama stated would happen (but hasn’t). Finally, I would love to see those complicit in covering up the event with talking points, as well as those who knew what was happening and did nothing brought to justice as well. It is time for this government to be held accountable.
