The Obama Administration’s cynical political cowardice, dishonesty and cover-up of the tragic events in Benghazi Libya on 9/11/12 where a U.S. Ambassador was murdered along with three other Americans during an organized al-Qaida terrorist attack of our U.S. Consulate is beginning to make the infamous 1972 Watergate scandal, which caused the cynical political coward Richard Nixon to resign his office as president in disgrace, look like a jaywalking offense by comparison.
Nixon in 1972, like Obama in 2012, was pulling out all the stops in his election year effort to win a second term in the White House against his much weaker democratic opponent, George McGovern. His election campaign operatives were engaging in dirty tricks one after another.
A group of Republican political goons was caught burglarizing the Washington D.C. Democratic Party headquarters located at the Watergate complex. No one was killed. No one was physically harmed. It was just another Republican Party campaign dirty trick.
Though Nixon himself was probably not personally involved in the Watergate break-in, he never-the-less presided over a cynically political and cowardly cover-up of the facts in which he repeatedly lied to the public, withheld and actually destroyed incriminating evidence connecting his administration with the crime and the criminals. He didn’t want the incident to hurt his reelection chances even though he was way ahead in the polls.
Had Nixon simply had the courage to man up and admit to the whole truth at the beginning, there would have been no scandal, he would have been reelected anyway, and would have no doubt happily served out his second presidential term.
But Richard Nixon then, just like Barack Obama now, and so many other parasitical politicians who think only of themselves and the preservation of their own power at all costs, was a dishonest cynical political coward who, fortunately for the citizens of America, eventually got what he deserved. He will go down in history forever as a national disgrace.
President Obama is facing a much tougher and closer contest now than President Nixon was then. In fact, he’s losing what was once a considerable edge over his challenger with only a matter of days to go before the election. He clearly doesn’t want what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 to make things worse for his chances.
So he is showing his true dishonest, cynical political cowardice for the entire world to see.
The President, Vice President, and the rest of the Obama administration deliberately and repeatedly lied, stonewalled, and attempted to cover up their utter incompetence and malfeasance from the outset in the handling of the Benghazi Libya terror attack and its aftermath.
A United States Ambassador and three other Americans lost their lives because of that incompetence.
That Ambassador, Chris Stevens, the facts now reveal, was literally begging for greater security at the consulate long before the terror attack began because there were credible threats against his life and other evidence that danger was imminent.
The Obama administration via Hillary Clinton’s State Department repeatedly denied his pleas for help and support. They left him helpless and twisting in the wind. This happened despite the fact that they owed to Ambassador Stevens a solemn obligation to defend a consulate which is actually sovereign U.S. territory.
When the attack came the President and his administration were sitting safely and comfortably observing “real time” videos, and receiving “real time” emails at the White House situation room informing them exactly what was happening at the Benghazi consulate compound during the entire seven hours or so of the siege.
They knew that at least 20 well armed terrorist fighters were firing mortars and heavy ammunition at the compound; that our Ambassador was huddled in a safe room without security protection waiting and desperately begging for help; and that the al-Qaida terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia was already taking credit for the attack.
The President and his administration watched all of this going down for seven hours and did absolutely nothing to try to stop the carnage. They ignored Ambassador Steven’s pleas for help and actually repeatedly blocked efforts by some brave Americans to come to his aid.
Two of the Americans killed ignored orders twice from the CIA to "stand down" rather than help. They were able to rescue some of the trapped people at the consulate and take them to a CIA operated annex located about a mile away. The attackers then opened heavy fire on that annex. Again pleas for help were repeatedly denied by U.S. officials and more Americans died.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta now says that The U.S. military did not respond because he thought the attack was over before the U.S. had the chance to know what was really happening.
"(The) basic principle is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on; without having some real-time information about what's taking place," Panetta explained. "And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation."
They didn’t know what was going on. They didn’t know what was really happening. They thought it was over. So they sat back on their fat asses and let a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans die like dogs.
President Obama still says he was "not personally aware" of any request for more security by U.S. diplomats in Libya before the Sept. 11 strike on the consulate.
His administration was aware. The State Department was aware.
The Obama administration was aware in “real time” from the beginning of this mess exactly what was happening and when it was happening and who was making it happen. Yet for at least two weeks following the attack they lied about it, claiming that it was a "spontaneous" reaction to protests in Egypt over an anti-Islam film.
They’re still lying about it.
You see, President Obama had previously told the American people over and over that with the death of bin-Laden al-Qaida is also dead and he didn’t want this al-Qaida terrorist incident to belie that falsehood just days before the election. So he took the cynical coward’s way out. He lied and smugly presided over the rest of his administrations bald faced lies about what happened in Benghazi on 9/11.
And when Republican Party presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, had a golden opportunity to nail his rival with the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth during the last debate, he incredibly played the role of Mr. Meekmop, and let Obama wipe the floor with him, because he wanted to play it safe and not ruin his own chances for the presidential prize.
He should be ashamed.
They both deserve to lose.
They’re all cynical political cowards.
