On 9/11 We Should Have Known
In the non-aftermath of the brutal hit-and-run slaughter in Benghazi, the one Obama callously termed a bump in the road, I have waited to see this atrocity addressed with any serious investigation by the media. How naïve can one be? Our bought-and-paid-for MSM know well the price for access to Obama and his administration: complicit silence when he demands it. For Benghazi, the complicity was overt; thus The Echo Chamber is empty of all substantial sound on this old stale subject.

The music video below is from last November, before the burial was quite complete. That was before The MSM had finished labeling the subject of Benghazi as old news, before theyd assumed their studied indifference to the fact that high-level officials watched our men die in real time. Watched them die and refused to permit anyone to come to their aid.
And our journalists also followed orders to stand down. Obama got up the next morning and continued campaigning for his second term.
Why do these yes-men and women complain that the publics level of trust in them is somewhat lower than the low regard in which politicians are held? The lack of trust in both has been well-earned.
Note that this music vid goes back to the beginning, when the stonewalling was little more than tissue-thin. The spurious claims about an anti-Muslim video causing the deaths in Benghazi were never credible; that gauze wall could have been pulled apart by any one MSM personality with enough integrity to investigate and call out this administration on its perfidy.
Heres something to ponder: why did no one interview the film producer when he was in jail awaiting trial? Was he forbidden access to the press? Why the extreme lack of interest on the part of the MSM in this shadowy figure? Just another facet of their paid-for silence? If access was refused why wasnt that an item of interest for journalists usually willing to track down the least little scintilla of evidence when Sarah Palin was in their cross-hairs?
Another thing from that time: why did Mitt Romney deliberately join in the ringing silence the hear-no, see-no, tell-no mime show surrounding this event? He utterly failed to raise essential questions about the lame lies concerning the video or the cover-up of that brutal Islam-style death of an American government official in Libya. Christopher Stevens appears to have ended spent his last moments on earth much as Gadhafi did. If there is one thing we thought we knew about Romney, it was that he was a decent, courageous man. Yet this decent man let Stevens death go right by him as he maintained his place in the chorus of silence.
We may be much further down the road to a totalitarian culture than wed like to think.

"When I looked today, almost six weeks later, it had somewhat over 9,000 views. NINE THOUSAND! In other words, the response to this attempt to publicize the atrocity failed. Its as though weve had a pail of amnesia fluid poured over us followed by an endless barrage ( I use the word advisedly) of trivial and tragic distractions to take us away from the horror of Benghazi.
Looking at the video brought it all back, including the unanswered questions I pose to you today. Few people believe our current Secretary of State will tell the truth while she is testifying before Congress. We have become so jaded, so inured to corruption that we no longer even bother to complain about this serious breach of the law. It is merely business-as-usual inside the Beltway.
The singer has it right:
.on 9/11 we should have known
The FIRST 9/11 should have been our wake-up call. But then those buckets of amnesia, flung over us by government, press, and our experts make it increasingly harder to stay awake."
Thank you for posting this Dymphna. It reminded me to post the following update from CNS as well. . . Clinton Publicly Linked Benghazi to Video Before Woods and Doherty Were Killed
Hillary already had the 'controversial video clip narrative prepared PRIOR to the demise of the BenGhazi heroes. The attack was being video-taped and watched - LIVE. . .and she had this narrative prepared and released PRIOR to their demise. Begs a lot of questions. . .why? why is the producer of that film still being politically persecuted? Where are the reports of the identities and personal reports from the injured members who were evacuated from the BenGhazi site? Taxpaying citizens and members of our military continuing to serve under these shady circumstances have a right to know who is responsible and why.
Something what happened in Benghazi will happen again somewhere else in Obama’s 2nd term in office and it too will be swept under the rug by the MSM and American people.
Sandy Hook is being met with just as much a media blackout as Benghazi.. That should raise suspicions. Perhaps Sandy Hook was just as much a terrorist attack as 9/11 was, only this time to enlist support for gun bans in America.
Thanks for adding the links . . .it’s important to keep Benghazi on the front burners until it’s resolved. In a sane world, this administration would be tried for treason.
Several times over!
Only the POTUS had the authority to act!
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

There are three scandals here...
Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.
The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
ONE man deserted his post!
0bama abandoned his post. 0bama Is A Deserter!
