Quick, what’s easier to answer for: being a liar…or being derelict of duty?
You would think a smart Republican would wonder why Hillary and the Obama goon squad are so blase over being caught with their ‘it was a video’ Benghazi lies.
When you think about it though, it’s a no-brainer.
For a Democrat, being categorized a liar is (usually) a badge of honor.
It’s much more difficult to defend dereliction of duty…especially when that failure causes American deaths…and could be a career-ender, even for a Democrat.
The real failure of Benghazi was not activating 6th Fleet extraction teams which could have rescued Americans earlier, saving at least Glen Doherty and Ty Woods.
Because it was a full 6 hours and 20 minutes after the initial attack began, when both Doherty and Woods were killed.
The U.S. Navy 6th Fleet is stationed in Naples Italy, with several units specifically tasked to provide evacuation for threatened Americans in its theater of operations.
The distance from Naples Italy to Benghazi Libya is 668.3 miles. The teams are on standby 24/7, and could have been there within 2 hours…but no order was given.
Almost 40 Americans could have died, yet the State Dept and Commander-in-Chief failed to activate highly trained U.S. Spec-Ops evacuation teams. (Only Obama and the State Dept could authorize the military force necessary to implement a rescue.)
The most important job of our elected leaders, is protecting Americans.
So it’s no wonder Obama and Hillary are so willing to let the ‘it-was-a-video’ lies and accusations run their course – it obscures an impeachable failure…
…they both violated their oath of office by failing to ‘well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office’ they had been elected and/or appointed to fulfill.
When the assault began, they had no idea how long it would last, or how many Americans could be killed. Their failure could have sealed the fate of 40 Americans.
More could have.
That’s why they hope all we dwell on is the ‘video’ lie.
Americans would be better served if Republicans would ‘man-up’ and point this out.
