Yes, government waste, fraud and abuse are the triplet children of incompetence, greed and unbridled ambition.
But these sins of public trust begin and end with dishonesty.
And Joseph E. Schmitz has seen a lot of lying by the government to taxpayers in his lengthy legal career.
Schmitz, who served as inspector general of the U.S. Department of Defense from 2002-05, in an interview with Watchdog.org said, no political party has a monopoly on waste, fraud and abuse and corruption.
But he said he has seen some troubling patterns of deceit in the Obama administration.
Exhibit A, according to the attorney: Benghazi.
I still represent whistleblowers, and I see the people in this current administration just blatantly lying lying to American citizens, lying about people trying to redress grievances, Schmitz said. These huge scandals start with dishonesty.
Conservatives have been critical of the Obama administrations handling of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, an assault that killed four Americans including a U.S. ambassador.
A Senate Intelligence Committee report released in January criticized the Hillary Clinton-led U.S. State Department and the intelligence community for not preventing the attacks.
The long-delayed bipartisan report asserts the State Department failed to increase security, although it had been repeatedly warned to do so, and it faulted intelligence agencies for not sharing information.

Wai til he finds out Allah is a demon when he’s running around trying to find those 72 virgin homos that don’t exist.
I would have said “saturated”, but that’s synonymous with “flooded” in this respect anyhow.
Not merely coincidental that there are several claims in the Koran that “Allah has not taken unto himself a son”. Complete opposite of the claims by God in 2 Samuel 7:14 and 1 Chronicles 17:13, just for starters.
Troubling patterns indeed. The...man is an islamist.
I sometimes watch the tv show THE FIRST 48. I watch it to see the liars. They raise up their hands and swear to God that they are telling the truth. It’s an eye-opener.
Yeah, we should have spent the money on security. It’s the fault of Obama that we didn’t - he WANTS our people to be unprotected. And our intelligence agencies are a disgrace when it comes to cooperation, or even basic truthfulness. There’s been some good books about it.
Once the Obummer is booted out of office, a whole lot will come to light, I’m bettin’ - and the blowback on that won’t be pretty.
