Benghazi does not matter? not as important as other issues? Waste of time?

I’d like to hear you say this if one of those murdered were your own loved one!

A CIC not defending his people whom he sends in harm’s way is not as important as the other issues?

A ‘president’ can get away with murder?

HE CAN LIE, COVER-UP, BE LAWLESS ALL HE WANTS, BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO DO NOT THINK IT MATTERS!

WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU?

The POTUS has effectively been above the law since Marbury v. Madison (1810). However, since then, their power has increased to the point where they can frequently violate the law, with only the ineffective threat of impeachment to stop them.

In recent years, the POTUS has been able to co-opt legislative and judicial powers without opposition or even challenge. And though cabinet officers can be impeached, only one ever has been, and then only after he resigned.

The house citing the Attorney General for contempt of congress has become meaningless.

When commerce secretary Ron Brown was assassinated for selling National Security Agency secrets to the Chinese, it was done in such a way as to assure everyone that it had been ordered by the government, if not at the sole order of the POTUS.

When senior officials of both parties were asked about this, they all gave the same unresponsive and bizarre response, that “It is against the policy of the United States to assassinate foreign officials.”

Obama is openly responsible for dozens, perhaps hundreds of directed homicides via drone, which many around the world would call indiscriminate murder. But such directed homicide is also pro forma of the Special Operations Command (SOCOM), who have been conducting their own war parallel to the conventional war.

You asserted that I don’t think that this matters. That is incorrect. But it matters not just because of Obama, but because this is what the office of the POTUS has become. The office itself needs significant reform, and reduction in its unbridled authority, because now it is approaching, or has become, the much feared “imperial presidency”.

Benghazi does not matter. It is a pebble in an ocean, soon expecting a tsunami. It is tragic that four Americans lost their lives. But Americans are being killed by terrorists on a daily basis.
