MORT’s Meanderings

Mirror, mirror on the wall.

I’d like to have a dime for every time the question has been posed over the past several weeks since the Ambassador and three other officials were killed and the U.S. Consulate was destroyed in Bengasi, Libya – “Who is culpable; who is to blame?”.

Quite obviously, it was Muslim thugs who perpetrated these horrendous deeds. The name by which they call themselves this week, is meaningless. It is the vicious, murderous lunatics who are followers of Islam that performed these horrors against our Embassy, the symbol of our presence on that foreign soil. That is not the question.

The real question is, whom in our own government is directly responsible for the fiasco of disinformation that was offered up as the first official response? And secondly, how was it that neither the Secretary of State or the President responded in a timely manner, to the quite obvious fact that this was an organized attack of terrorism against our representatives and property of the United States? Terrorism? Jihad? Muslims? Islam? None of these terms were to be found in the first or even in subsequent reports on this tragedy. How could that be?

The Foreign Desk people at our national security agencies were aware of the build-up of insurgent activity and other undeniable signs of impending violence and trouble in Libya. And, I’m guessing that this information will come to light when their reports are made public - eventually.

Oh, regarding who might be culpable . . or who is to blame?

Hillary; Obama: . . . LOOK IN THE MIRROR! Mystery solved.

Suppose Obama or Hillary Clinton had a family member or a real close friend stuck in that Consulate in Benghazi, do you think help would have been forthcoming to try to save the Ambassador and the three other Americans? How could our leaders turn their backs on these murdered Americans without at least an attempt to save them? This coverup is ten times worse than the Watergate coverup - and there were no deaths at the Watergate. What a disgrace.
