I have been puzzling over what I perceive as the growing loss of public interest in the Benghazi debacle in which an American ambassador and three others lost their lives and the former Secretary of State in a pique of anger over questions about the event said, What difference does it make?
It makes a difference if the State Department was derelict or indifferent to the ambassadors cables that spelled out the security threats that he and his staffed faced or, for that matter, the attacks on other diplomats and humanitarian organizations operating in what was a war zone. African migrant workers had earlier been attacked creating an evacuation crisis, but the September 11, 2012a noteworthy anniversaryattack simply accelerated the flight from a lawless region controlled by al Qaeda.
Now, six months later, with the exception of Fox News, there is little notice taken of what is arguably a major scandal, one of incompetence followed by deception, and which, like Fast and Furious, the gun-running scandal to Mexican drug cartels dreamed up and covered up in the Department of Justice, is fading not just from the news, but from the memories of Americans

And the fungus amongus is spreading.
Not only no grasp of history, but I also think a majority of Americans no longer have the interest or the intellectual ability to understand a single paragraph of an article such as this.
But, like Fast & Furious, the illegal & cowardly acts of this Administration are talked about briefly & forgotten.
From what I can see, decent people have NO reps in WDC.
Did you you that NASCAR crack up at Daytona?
What about those Oscars tonight? If sports doesn’t work, vicarious celebrity watching should take you mind off reality!
Television is the opiate of the people!
I seem to remember something about gun running to Mexico, a border agent getting killed, an Attorney General with the House voting some type of legal action before some kind of court???? Anyone remember that???? Fast and Angry...something like that.
I still feel fury every time I think of Hillary’s “what difference does it make?”
Here’s why: there is no difference between what she said, and if she had said: “With all due respect, Senator, we have six million Jews who disappeared from Nazi-controlled territories during World War II. At this late date, does it matter if it was just due to a bunch of Hitler Youth out to make some trouble, or if they were acting out in reaction to some provocation.”
I would submit to Hillary that it makes a great deal of difference to know and understand the REAL cause, no matter how long after the fact. So that it doesn’t happen again. It’s equally frustrating that she didn’t even list in her alternative “causes” of the four Americans’ deaths all of the real possibilities, just the two that she wanted to talk about, in order to trivialize the search for the real causes. The ones she doesn’t want to be investigated further.
Sorry that last sentence is a non sequitur. Like I said, the subject makes me too furious to type correctly.
