Yesterday’s Congressional hearing into the Benghazi attack made big news as the cover up, lies and deception of the Obama Administration unraveled before our eyes.
Many other outlets will report on the combination of outrageous incompetence and unmitigated arrogance of the so-called “Career State Department Officials” that led to the loss of four lives in the Benghazi attack
That aspect of this despicable episode of foreign policy blundering will not go away. But something more seems to have been lost here.
Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-Cleveland), a staunch and consistent opponent of American intervention in the Middle East, reminded everyone that:
- Our bombing and destruction of Libya was not authorized.
- Obama never received approval from Congress for any of the actions America took in that war.
So what then was the big story that seems to have been brushed aside?
Fast and Furious On Steroids.
There is a potential for massive loss of life and disruption of commercial airline traffic, everywhere in the world, far beyond the Benghazi attack.
Once again, the Obama administration put deadly weapons in the hands of terrorists and Al Qaeda. And they did it without a clue or a care as to who they were or the future consequences of those actions.
The State Department’s former regional security officer, Eric Nordstrom, was pressured by the committee to approximate how many shoulder fired missiles, capable of taking down passenger jets, are in the hands of terrorists.
Benghazi attack a bigger disaster than first imagined
It may take some time for the committee to sort out just whom it was that made the final decisions, over and over again, not to give Nordstrom the security personnel and weapons he requested. It may take even longer to dig out from under the rocks the scoundrel who ordered the State Department and other officials to lie to the American people.
TPATH has a good idea because as we have been told over the years, the “fish rots from the head”. And by the way, that fish head? It was stinking up the UN, inciting hatred to the world, long after even the White House gardener knew that a buffoonish video was not the cause of the Benghazi attack.
So,despite the gravity of the cover up and lies, isn’t the real story a question on who authorized massive amounts of weapons to be handed over to terrorists? Should we not be troubled about where these missiles are and where they will end up? Such as outside airports in America and Europe?
Houston, we’ve had a problem.
