Obama a manipulator not a commander. The House Oversight Committee hearings that took place last week Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were unfit for their respective offices. The three State Department personnel testified that President Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton provided no support on the attack at the Consulate in Benghazi and abandoned their duties resulting in the vicious murders of four Americans.
The testimony of State Department officers, Greg Hicks, Eric Nordstrom and Mark Thompson, was damning to the Obama administration especially when Mr. Hicks said the alleged video was a nonevent. Obama and Clinton peddled the myth for weeks that the video was the cause of Consulate attack. These men were very aware of the attack at the Consulate getting updates in their Tripoli offices. Ambassador Chris Stevens told Mr. Hicks that the Consulate was under attack just hours before his death.
For his bravery, Mr. Hicks was demoted because he spoke the truth to Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz. The disturbing aspect in the whole chain of events is Clinton and Obama ordered troops in Tripoli and other nearby regions to stand down. Both Obama and Clinton had hardly ever been camera shy but they have been hiding in the tall grass lately expecting the media and fawning Democrats to defend their negligence.
The hearings also disclosed the State Department altered e-mails and summations of the attack. What also must be learned is what was Obama doing from 5 PM on September 11, 2012 until early morning the next day?
Meanwhile the dishonest media hunkers down to enable Obama failings. The Detroit Free Press didn’t publish any details of the hearing in Thursday’s edition. Yet, they had a front-page story of Abu Ghraib prison abuse case involving a local attorney. Abu Ghraib happened much longer ago than Benghazi.
Any ramifications of impeachment or censure are too premature at this time. With Democrats controlling the Senate, those measures will not happen. But Obama is damaged politically. Clinton’s chances as a presidential candidate in 2016 are also in question. As long as the press covers Obama’s infallibility, he will continue to act like a Kardashian or Snooki, completely unfit for office.
Final Thought: The dishonest media continues its political correctness practice with the diabolical sadist, Ariel Castro. They’ve rarely mentioned Castro was Hispanic or an immigrant. Yet just few weeks ago, the same media had immediately indicted and convicted White Christians for the Boston Marathon bombing before authorities discovered the Tsarnaev brothers.
