Skip to comments.The Benghazi Lie - A failure of character of this magnitude corrodes the integrity of the state.
Posted on 05/10/2013 3:22:09 PM PDT by neverdem
Shortly before last Novembers election I took part in a Fox News documentary on Benghazi, whose other participants included the former governor of New Hampshire John Sununu. Making chit-chat while the camera crew were setting up, Governor Sununu said to me that in his view Benghazi mattered because it was a question of character. Thats correct. On a question of foreign policy or counterterrorism strategy, men of good faith can make the wrong decisions. But a failure of character corrodes the integrity of the state...
But, at the time Deputy Chief Hicks was calling 9-1-1 and getting executive-branch voicemail, nobody in Washington knew how long it would last. A terrorist attack isnt like a soccer game, over in 90 minutes. If it is a sport, its more like a tennis match: Whether its all over in three sets or goes to five depends on how hard the other guy pushes back. The government of the United States took the extremely strange decision to lose in straight sets\...
Wheres the partisan politics? Obama, Clinton, Panetta, Clapper, Rice, and the rest did this to one of their own. And fawning court eunuchs, like the ranking Democrat at the hearings, Elijah Cummings, must surely know that, if they needed, theyd do it to them, too. If you believe in politics über alles, its impressive, in the same way that Hillarys cocksure dismissal What difference, at this point, does it make? is impressive.
But the embassy security chief, Eric Nordstrom, had the best answer to that: It matters because the truth matters not least to the Libyan president, who ever since has held the U.S. government in utter contempt. Truth matters, and character matters. For the American people to accept the Obama-Clinton lie is to be complicit in it.

Not at all. The state has no integrity, because it concentrates too much power in the hands of too few people, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
God forbide, was it a planned event on the bammy's part?

This stinks, stinks,stinks, and they can’t put it back into the bottle. Not even the media.
Talking to a young European today and they have not heard of this Benghazi. But this stink just won’t go away.
Thanks for the link!
Integrity is that a word that is still appicable to the US Government? R or D I have no trust in any politician on the Hill! How bout Cheat, Lie, and Steal from the American People!
News Media has egg all over their faces. Are Obama and Hillary playing the Game of Thrones? The Media sits back afraid to see their own shadow!
Hillary wasn’t ready for her 3am phone call.
Try Senator’s Cruz, Lee and Sessions.
I think they have integrity.
Since the administration is lying and covering up the true nature of the attack, the terrorists know they are not being looked for and there will be no retaliation. And all terrorists see the US again reacting weakly to terrorism in the pre-911 mode.
It is important to remember 9-11 was preceded by a series of increasingly serious terror attacks, not least of which were the attacks on the Africa Embassies. Newly supplied out of Libyan stocks, Al Qaeda today is metastasizing across Northern Africa and Obama is refusing to take action because it would admit he lied about Benghazi.
Yes, Hillary, it DOES matter to the security of the United States.
Talking to a young European today and they have not heard of this Benghazi.

Show me the Money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder if Michelle is still “proud of her country”...
Indeed, especially when outright statists are in charge and are reigning with maniacal joy and attack the defenders of traditional America with a bloodlust.
The communist/socialist acts of tyranny that these despots have implemented with delighted agitation has destroyed the integrity of the offices they hold.
I fear it will be many years, if ever, before integrity is returned by those who celebrate limited power.
