SOUTH FLORIDA, October 29, 2012 — When Watergate broke, President Richard Nixon was brought down because Republicans put their honor and love of country ahead of their political party and its leader.
Democrats today love their President, but does that blind devotion eclipse the need to know the truth, even when it is uncomfortable? Does the need to swing the country lefward and protect Roe v. Wade, immigration and a liberal Supreme Court supersede the lives of our SEALs and border guards?
On the eleventh anniversary of the original September 11th attacks, radical Islamists with confirmed ties to al Qaeda launched coordinated attacks on United States embassies and consulates in Libya.
Four Americans were murdered, including United States Ambassador Chris Stevens.
The Obama administration blamed the attacks on spontaneous outrage over a video that most people have never seen.
The Constitution and freedom of speech took a major hit when the filmmaker was arrested and held without bail on low-level white collar charges. The ACLU and other civil libertarians seem uninterested in finding out where he is or why an American citizen is being detained without bail. Regardless of the charge, this is about scapegoating someone, not getting to the truth.
In recent days the story of Benghazi has gotten much worse. Emails now prove that the Obama administration knew within two hours of the attacks who the perpetrators were and what was motivating them.
Video of the tragedy is available for all to see, but it is graphic.
As bad as this all seems, it is even worse. The firefight lasted seven hours. There was plenty of time to save Ambassador Stevens. The Obama administration simply refused to do so.
Two Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were at a safe location one mile away from where Ambassador Stevens and some thirty others were being attacked. Both Woods and Doherty reportedly were given orders to “stand down,” to not try to rescue anybody.
These two heroes defied orders and rushed to help their fellow Americans. They saved some lives, but lost their own.
The parents of these two courageous men want to know who ordered them to stand down. Just as important, we now know that those at the Consulate begged for help themselves and were refused three times.
“I wish that the leadership in the White House had the same level of moral courage and heroism that my son displayed,” Charles Woods, father of slain Navy Seal Tyrone Woods told Fox News.
“They (Obama administration) refused to pull the trigger,” Woods said. “Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son.”
The Obama administration claims that it is conducting an investigation that will not be concluded until after the presidential election. In the words of the Church Lady, “How convennnnnient.”
The President has said, “Nobody wants to find out more than I do, but we want to be sure to get it right because I have made a committment … to bring those folks to justice.”
Reports from the administration are that the President, in the situation room, said people were to “do what they can” to insure the safety of “our people.” The military response was far different than “do what you can.” No jets where sent to disperse the attackers, and no boots were sent from Italy, less than an hour away. The first calls for help were at 9:40pm. The heroes maintained their position until 4:00am the next morning, when they were killed in the conflict.
The question remains: Did President Obama contradict himself by not backing up his words to do “what they can” with the military order to stand down? While Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were on the CIA annex rooftop, disobeying that “stand down” order so that they could try to save those inside the embassy, did the Obama Administration stand by with its collective hands behind its back?
The last thing in the world President Obama wants is for the truth to come out before the election. His entire foreign policy rationale comes from Osama bin Laden being dead and al Qaeda being on the run. We now know that al Qaeda is stronger than they have been in years. They murdered Americans on American soil and on Obama’s watch, and he failed to prevent the attacks.
Yet the biggest tragedy besides the deaths themselves is the real reason why the entire truth over what went wrong has not come out.
A large number of liberal voters, and liberal media, don’t care about the facts.
Let that sink in. There are dead Americans, and a plurality of the electorate does not care.
This is where some liberals hurl charges of bias and howl with righteous indignation at anyone who questions Obama’s leadership. They criticize Governor Mitt Romney for pointing out that Obama failed to prevent the attacks and the deaths, instead continuing his re-election meme, “Al Qaeda is on the run”.
There are liberal issues that truly get liberals angry. They will fight to the death for abortion, free contraception, and against global warming. Dead humans receive a shrug of the shoulders, while trees and bunny rabbits and the right to kill the unborn are where they draw their lines in the sand.
Obama and his liberal base pretend to care about three things: healthcare, education, and the environment. These are the words Obama repeats like a mantra. Everything else is a distraction for him. Every question about foreign policy results in his rambling that investing in education and hiring more teachers will solve the problem.
President Obama lied, Americans died, and the integrity of the American left died with them. Far too many liberals no longer pledge allegiance to America, instead offering their fealty to Obama. His reelection at any and all costs supersedes a few pawns that may, however unfortunately, get sacrificed along the way.
So what if Obama gets our bravest soldiers killed? He is pro-choice, favors gay marriage, and believes in the Chevy Volt. The liberal left does not care about dead Americans. They care about 270 electoral votes.
Prove me wrong. Lets have an overwhelmingly American, not liberal or conservative, demand for an investigation that concludes before the election. Be willing to risk losing an election if the truth shows President Obama to be less than what the American people want in a leader.
No sane person should care if some liberals are angry over being accused of putting party over country. The left has had six weeks to seek the truth, and they have done everything possible to demonize anybody demanding answers.
Let those liberals be angry for being accused of loving one overrated mediocre man over the remaining 300 million Americans who are the real bosses of this country. Conservatives are angry over four murdered Americans and a President who is more concerned with his own reelection then in telling the American people the truth about Benghazi.
There are four murdered Americans and we want to know who made the decision to not come to their aid and why.
What we will get however is, like Fast and Furious and conversations with Russian emissaries, a coverup at all costs. Let’s see if the left has an ounce of decency left. The clock is ticking.
