The Obama administration’s debacle in Beghazi, covered up by the mainstream media in the months before the election, will stand the test of time as an example of the weakening of American power around the world during the age of Obama.
Leon Panetta’s testimony about the incident is just another brick in the wall:
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday that the speed of the attack on the U.S. Consulate inBenghazi, Libya, last September kept U.S. armed forces from responding in time to save the four Americans who were killed.
Testifying for likely the last time on Capitol Hill before stepping down, Panetta defended the U.S. military’s response on a chaotic Sept. 11 day as the Obama administration tried to assess the threat from protests in Tunisia, Egypt, the Libyan capital of Tripoli and other countries.
“The United States military is not and should not be a global 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world,” Panetta said. <source>
Note the rhetorical subterfuge of attacking a belief that no one holds, namely that the U.S. military should be a ‘global 911 service’.
Who has ever said such a thing? No one.
The real issue, Leon, is that you and Hillary and Barry knew, or should have known, that the Libya mess YOU ALL CREATE IN THE FIRST PLACE was ripe for the kind of terrorist attack that in fact occurred. Libya was not just another country in the world somewhere; rather it was the theater of the war that our nobel prize winner started and then led (from behind) in which incoming Muslim extremists replaced outgoing Muslim extremists.
And let’s not forget mr. Obama’s worst crime in this incident: the willful obfuscation of the truth about the attack, which once again sought to put a friendly face on Muslim extremism and in this case went even further in that Obama and his allies shifted the blame entirely away from the perpetrators.
History often forgets, but sometimes remembers particularly heinous acts by people such as Barack Obama. We shall see where Obama Benghazi ends up.
