I’m sure readers have been following developments in the proposed Congressional inquiry into the Benghazi attack last year. Some are now referring to it as ‘Benghazi-gate‘, in the Watergate tradition. Francis Poretto provides an excellent summary of the current ‘state of play’, including many of the questions so far unanswered. He concludes:
If the above-interviewed Special Operator is telling the truth, the Obama Administration made a policy decision to sacrifice four American lives, including that of an ambassador, to cover up its own wrongdoing. I can’t think of an uglier episode in American foreign policy history, unless it was the Alger Hiss / Harry Dexter White orchestrated surrender of Eastern Europe to Stalin at Yalta in 1945.
This sort of knockoff reportage is uncharacteristic of Liberty’s Torch, which is principally an opinion-editorial site. However, an outrage such as this demands the attention of every thinking American, for which reason the usual bloviation is suspended for this morning in favor of… well, outrage.
We must know what happened, and why.
We must know who authorized what and who forbade what.
We must hold anyone in the chain of command responsible for his decisions.
There’s much more at the link. Intriguing reading. Recommended.
