The Daily Beast ^ | May 20, 2013 2:53 PM EDT | Josh Rogin

Posted on 05/20/2013 1:02:09 PM PDT by tje

Raymond Maxwell, the only official at the bureau of Near Eastern Affairs to lose his job tells Josh Rogin that he’s been scapegoated by Hillary Clinton’s team.

Following the attack in Benghazi, senior State Department officials close to Hillary Clinton ordered the removal of a mid-level official who had no role in security decisions and has never been told the charges against him. He is now accusing Clinton’s team of scapegoating him for the failures that led to the death of four Americans last year.

Did he write the talking points? Just kidding. hillary found him and made him take credit for something he didn't do. Kind of like Vince Foster without the gun. hillary must have thought he knew something ... and now Josh does know something. Watch your back Josh.

Why is this man not on 60 Minutes making these charges? Oh that’s right, the man sitting in the White House isn’t named Bush or a Republican, and the one who is is worshipped by the cabal at 60 Minutes as being a demi-god.

According to the blog Diplopundit Raymond Maxwell is also a poet. He penned a poem that was reprinted on the Diplopundit blog. Hopefully Mr Maxwell will not be upset if I quote the first stanzas here:

Invitation

© Raymond Maxwell

The Queen’s Henchmen
request the pleasure of your company
at a Lynching – to be held
at 23rd and C Streets NW
on Tuesday, December 18, 2012
just past sunset.

Dress: Formal, Masks and Hoods -
the four being lynched
must never know the identities
of their executioners, or what/
whose sin required their sacrifice.

A blood sacrifice –
to divert the hounds -
to appease the gods -
to cleanse our filth and
satisfy our guilty consciences.

Arrive promptly at sunset –
injustice will be swift.
there will be no trial,
no review of evidence,
no due process, and no
accountability.

Read the rest here.

I don't think this man wants to fade away without being heard. Guess he was chosen as a proper scapegoat because he was a) a man b) close to retirement so he wouldn't mind anyway. But maybe they were unlucky and foudn someone who actually cared about his name.

Didn’t know who to ping, but I feel this story is too good to just let it disappear. And the poem deserves to go viral.

Somebody give this man a whistle

“They just wanted me to go away but I wouldn’t just go away,” he said. “I knew Chris [Stevens]. Chris was a friend of mine.”

With the help of 501cs (and not the GOP) this will officially kill the President Hillary possibility.
