Skip to comments.Adm. James Lyons (Ret.) on Growing Benghazi Scandal
Posted on 02/15/2013 4:58:28 PM PST by EXCH54FE
I asked Adm. Lyons what he thought of Hillary Clintons question to the senators when she was feeling the heat from their questions. What difference does it make? she angrily asked, referring to how the men died. The questions asked of Sec. Clinton were trying to get an answer to why the administration had claimed for weeks that the attack was in response to an anti-Islamic video produced in the U.S., when records and testimony made it clear that it was a planned terrorist attack on the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001, and the intelligence community knew it from the first day.
Adm. Lyons answer to What difference does it make was, Richard Nixon found out what the difference is when you lie to the American publicand in his lie, it was only a bungled burglary attempt; nobody got killed. In this case, we had four Americans murdered. Furthermore, we knew, within a matter of hours, that this was a determined, preplanned terrorist attack. So you have to ask yourself, why perpetuate this lie for almost two weeks?
During the interview, Adm. Lyons gave his views on what he thinks was going on in Libya at the time; on the Arab Spring; on sending F-16s and tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt; on President Obamas new national security team; and on the Law of the Seas Treaty, among other topics. Below are excerpts from the interview. You can listen to the entire interview or read the transcript here. You can read Admiral Lyons bio and learn more about his current activities here.
ROGER ARONOFF: You have been a persistent critic of how the [Obama] administration has handled the attack on our special mission compound in Benghazi.

I sincerely hope her recent now infamous testimony is the final straw.
But I probably expect too much.
It’s pretty simple. Hillary lied; people died.
This entire regime is filled with corrupt liars and traitors. If the republicans don’t have the stones to prosecute these criminals then they are just as guilty as the regime. This Benghazi episode is sickening and an embarrassment to the country.
Somebody...anybody bring all these criminals to justice.
They own the Courts. They own the “news” media. They own the entertainment industry. They own academia. Soon they will own the military. None of them will “bring these criminals to justice.”
Why should someone else bring them to justice?
Sometimes we just have to do it ourselves or it will not be done.
Know what I mean?
They darn well should be under oath at these hearings! It infuriates me that they aren't.
They darn well should be under oath at these hearings! It infuriates me that they aren’t....Why? They are Democrats. At this Point “What difference does it make’?
Yep, they’re Dems.
And there are too many spineless Pubs who aren’t willing to do what it takes to get to the truth.
I went to one of my Congressman’s townhalls a couple of years ago and he said he was frustrated with the way things are done in DC. He was one of the 2010 “newbies”. He said they have all these hearings and they’re just for show to make us think they’re really doing something. These Benghazi hearings seem to be a perfect example.
He’s holding townhalls next week and I plan to go to one of them. I can’t wait to hear what he has to say about the debacle.
