So, showing their usual complete absence of feck, Senate Republicans seem to have missed the point of the Benghazi scandal. That, or they've actively decided to assist Barack Obama in covering up his treasonous behavior.
Because of the Senate investigation, all of the news around the Benghazi attack has been over the talking points. Even I fell for it to some extent yesterday. "Who changed the talking points?" "Who is responsible for the talking points?" "Why was Rice sent in front of cameras?" People keep asking these questions, and the real question has gotten lost.
Here are the important questions: What did Barack Obama know about the substandard security for the Benghazi mission, and when did he know it? What did Barack Obama know about the terrorist attack against the Benghazi mission, and when did he know it? What did Barack Obama know about the orders not to send support during the attack, when did he know it, and why didn't he countermand them?
The talking points are tangential. The talking points are about the lies after the fact. Even investigating the "talking points" makes it seem like the problem was the lie, not the fact that 4 Americans were left to die.
Now, you know, and I know, and everyone paying any attention at all knows that the responsibility for all of this lies with Barack Obama. Anyone with any moral character whatsoever knows that Barack Obama should resign in disgrace or be impeached for the Benghazi attack. But I want it official. I want Congressional Republicans to get it on the record that Barack Obama holds ultimate responsibility. Then I want him impeached by the House.
Yes, I know that Democrats, who control the Senate, won't vote to impeach him. But I want that on record, too. I want them to go on record explaining why it's not an impeachable offense to approve substandard security for a mission in an area where terrorist organizations were known to be. I want them to go on the record explaining why it's not an impeachable offense not to have insured that the security at said mission was increased on the anniversary of 9/11 when Al Qaida and Al Qaida linked groups were known to a) want to attack us and b) be operating in the area. I want them to go on the record explaining why it's not an impeachable offense to have authorized, whether at the time or through prior orders, two stand-down orders to the CIA on the scene, and to have prohibited help from Signolla Air Base.
I want that on the record. And I want Conservative Media to scream about it so much that the Mainstream Media has no choice but to cover it.
