As one side chomps at the bit to break the “cover-up” wide open, the other is building a wall of protection around Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta and the state department to minimize the damage.
Whatever happened to the truth? Isn’t that all we really want? At least those of us who are interested.
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings it is difficult to understand the disconnect many Americans have between that attack and
What it says about Obama and Clinton is that they are so politically motivated and devious, that they absolutely could not run the risk of having a trifling event like four Americans being slaughtered in a foreign country get in the way of their personal aspirations. After all Obama was in the middle of a presidential campaign and had vital fund-raising to do. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman Clinton could not allow four years of phony rave reviews as Secretary of State be tarnished by a bunch of Islamic radical thugs.
In their minds, there was no choice. Truth be damned. Better to make up some hokum about a YouTube video and ride the tide of a complicit media to an election victory and deal with the consequences later. The sad thing about that strategy is if Obama been a leader, and if Clinton and Panetta had attempted to respond in some way, the American people would have accepted the attack for what it was and moved forward.
Now the circus heads into its eighth month and the country (again the part that is paying attention) is more polarized than ever.
As expected, the pro-Hillary forces are calling it a witch hunt. The mainstream media is feigning an attempt at some degree of disillusionment, as opposed to the vigilante uproar that would have occurred if the opposition was the guilty party. The rest of the media is trying to ignore the whole thing, hoping it will eventually go away, but that is the same mindset that caused the problem in the first place.
Let the witnesses come forth and the congressmen ask fair and probing questions. Let’s find out what really happened and be done with it. If the president and his cronies truly acted responsibly then the hearings will bear that out. If not, then calling them a witch hunt is completely inaccurate.
We have all observed our absentee president for the past five years. Letting someone else handle the dirty work when there is golf to be played or hoops to be shot or parities to attend is the way Obama governs.
For Hillary, the noose may be a little tighter this time around, though she has shown remarkable skill at evading the gallows in the past. On one hand, if she did ignore her duties and let subordinates handle the

After all, there is more terrorism on the horizon, and there is no need to undergo this exercise every time it happens.
