'A Vocal Segment of the Right'

There is an incredibly incestuous relationship between the media and the administration.

Because of this, and because of the media’s puppy love crush on Obama and desire to see him re-elected, the seven-hour-long slaughter of the ambassador and three defenders at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi and the administration’s role in facilitating it and covering up their fecklessness never received the attention it deserved.

Secretary of State Clinton’s refusal to provide the necessary security teams the ambassador repeatedly begged for, the murky arms dealings going on there, fallout from the unnecessary removal of the then-compliant Libyan head Kaddafi, and the refusal to send in troops to aid the beleaguered U.S. forces were all brushed aside by means of a dog-and-pony show about a barely viewed cockamamie video whose producer was quickly bundled off to jail before the paparazzi. Hillary, the president and even Colin Powell made appearances as the coffins of the 4 Americans slaughtered there arrived home and disingenuous expressions of sympathy and concern were uttered. All of this was a cheap show for the dummies. No one with any sense at all believed the official explanation even after Susan Rice -- who had no operational part of the events nor firsthand knowledge of them -- was trotted out with the fantastical story.

Efforts to get to the bottom of this have been routinely stymied and Congressional committees stonewalled by the malfeasants and their staffs.

Did not even notice it was the same graphic that Laz posted. This is how such gets into the conversation, one hopes.

When I first clicked on his link in his article it took a minute or so to figure it out, it really threw me. :-)

That’s a great graphic, hopefully more will click.
