Benghazi

May 15th, 2013

“Political circus.”

Those are the words of not just White House Press Secretary, but President Obama, regarding the 9/11/12 terror attacks in Benghazi.

One major problem with that statement – it is this Administration that is creating the “circus” in question.

The Obama Administration has been all over the map with what can only charitably be called a convoluted communications strategy.  From the “YouTube” video to sending UN Ambassador Susan Rice to do five Sunday Shows with watered down talking points, the Administration has done everything to cover up – or at least give the distinct impression of a cover-up – what really happened in Benghazi.

Serious questions need to be asked and answered.  An Ambassador is dead.  A U.S. outpost was attacked.  This is serious business.  The number one job of our government is to protect our national interests, and we were attacked in Benghazi.

As the Obama Administration appears to break every rule of crisis management, one thing is clear – it better get its answers straight and level with the American people.

While no one should rush to hyperbole about this situation— it is very important that a full investigation is commenced. The American people deserve the truth, and unfortunately in this situation, finding the truth appears to be a very murky proposition.

It is clear that serious problems existed on this fateful day, and the American people deserve the truth.
