Via Breitbart, this could be a potentially important moment in the Benghazi cover-up collapse for the Obama administration. Jon Stewart doesnt break any news on the story, like Eli Lake at the Daily Beast has done, or necessarily put together a previously unknown sequence of events to create a new angle on it. Stewart puts the story in front of an audience that may otherwise have been ignoring it the hip, disconnected younger voters and signal that this is now fair game:
That things like The Ring Stewart says of the video Obama is trying to pin so much of the Middle East unrest on. Three days after you watch it, embassies just burst into flames!
Most of the time, Stewart works a little pox-upon-all-houses criticism when he goes after Barack Obama and his administration. Not this time; for five minutes, Stewart hammers Obama himself for offering wishy-washy assessments while his administrations officials finally get around to admitting the obvious. The Daily Show runs UN Ambassador Susan Rices 9/16 assertions with the on-screen graphic reading duck and cover-up. Stewart then finishes with CNN Anderson Cooper reporting that the administration knew in the first few hours that it was a terrorist attack, and responds with an expletive. His conclusion? The consulate in Benghazi was a terrorist attack that was planned and coordinated. Our response? Ehhhh not so much.
The cover-up story has gone mainstream. Lets see if the mainstream media will run with it now.
Come on over to the other side, Stewart. See what happens when you expose the left - and especially such negligence as Benghazi? Maybe some lefties are FINALLY waking up to this bunch of crooks and liars that will sell their souls and kill Americans for political power.
What’s that old saying? Many truths are spoken in jest. Stewart might have thought this was a funny bit, but on the flip side -he had to know it is truth.
The coverup is well underway.
The blame narrative has been picked up by the media for when they are forced to report on the story: "A Film's Fault", "The CIA's Fault", "Intelligence Failure"... everyone/everything to blame but Obama/Clinton.
That picture of Hillary is classic.
Are they ripping him to pieces? Wonder if he’ll have that Dennis Miller kind of conversion, cans eventually end up on Fox News.
Come to the dark side, Jon...
Trying to keep it out there... the Benghazi fiasco should be grounds enough to not only dismiss Hillary, but force out Oblamer as well.
Nixon was forced to resign for a lot less over Watergate.
No kidding!!! This should ruin any presidential aspirations Hillary may have. She’s so deep into this cover up, it stinks. And Obama - well this story really SHOULD doom him from any re-election hopes.
I just hope this story will keep growing legs...
