Dems Leave Room As Benghazi Mom Says Obama, Hillary Lied
Investor's Business Daily ^ | September 20, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Benghazi-gate: Democrats couldn't share the grief of a mom who was lied to in front of her son's casket or a grieving father who wonders why the general who could have mounted a rescue was relieved of his post.

It was a shameful spectacle all around, starting with bizarre testimony by the authors of the State Department's Accountability Review Board (ARB) report and including real tears in a scandal branded as "phony" by the Obama administration and the repetition of lies agreed upon.

The scene was Thursday's hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack before Rep. Darrell Issa's House Oversight Committee. ARB co-chair Thomas Pickering shamelessly repeated the excuse that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was not interviewed by the board because members knew where the responsibility rested — as if an attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission and the murder of an ambassador, the first in three decades, was outside the scope of her interest or authority.

Yet Pickering and Mike Mullen, former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, authors of this "independent" investigation, admitted they regularly briefed Clinton and her advisers on their probe, an admission made more telling when the parents of two of the Benghazi dead said they never received the information they were promised on how and why their sons died.

Anything they say on the matter cannot be trusted...That will become their legacy.

I guess this Mom is not as sympathetic of a figure as Cindy Sheehan was.

I wonder if they had their fingers stuck in their ears while they were saying lalalalalalalala. No that couldn’t have happened because they had at least one had out at arms length with only the middle digit extended.

It’s sort of like the recent Medal of Honor winner, his award delayed by the Democrats because he demanded to know where his backup was ...
LBJ had himself awarded a Silver Star for flying as a passenger on a cargo plane in a combat zone; the Democrats expected this brave soldier to be `grateful’.

Democrats are lower than a whale terd dropped in the Marianas trench.

Effin cowards! They don’t have the courtesy of listening to the suffering parents! Un-freakin-believable! Each one should be flogged and then tarred and feathered and then shot! Not dead, but just enough so they suffer forever!

Dems Leave Room As Benghazi Mom Says Obama, Hillary Lied...not sure which is worse - that most of them left or that one of them - Spiers of California - stayed and patronizingly asked the two parents to talk about how wonderful their sons had been - had it been me in the witness chair, I would have told her to go f**k herself - she was clearly only trying to return the appearance of decency and integrity to those 'rat politicians who've done everything possible to prevent the truth about the incompetence and indifference of Obama and Clinton from coming out - the fact that the rest of her cronies didn't even have the decency to attend that portion of the hearing where these poor grieving parents would finally have their say betrays their real contempt for the "little people" they're forever prattling over being so concerned about......
