Thank goodness that someone from the Democratic party is calling for public
testimony on this event last fall. With all the grandstanding by the President
equivalent with the Ambassador Rice event last fall on every outlet they could
get, Ambassador Pickering did his best of mimicking Ambassador Rice almost to
the dialogue. President Nixon was good at everyone but himself go public to
state their part in the process but there is only one head and all the other
appendages don't count. Those parts can't move without the head. The
head was thinking about elections, campaigns, media appearances, meeting with
his own people and vacations and victory dances, balls, coronations, and how to
keep career politicians in the CIA, Department of State and Department of
Defense out of the picture and have Hillary admit to her part in the event.Her departure was agreed upon time for running for President. The
President didn't want this baggage impeding his plans for his kingdom. I
would even picture that his press corps even ensured Candy Crowley knew exactly
what to say about Benghazi with the Obama skew. It was orchestrated to the
second to throw Romney off target.
The Republicans should agree to this request by the Democrats.If
there really was nefarious intent, it would be awesome to have that right out in
front of the American Public.We want to see the evidence of what
particular things Obama and Hillary are alleged to have done. I have yet to see
or hear any evidence of any wrong-doing. Let's get the facts
out. Make the deposition public. What will Issa do?
"Pickering, a career diplomat who has served in Republican and Democratic
administrations, penned a highly critical report on security at a U.S. outpost
in Benghazi, Libya. He defended his scathing assessment but absolved Clinton.
"We knew where the responsibility rested," said Pickering, whose career
spans four decades."These are 2 highly respected men.While the report was "highly critical" the biggest problem for the GOP
is that it "absolved Clinton".This independent investigation
is not enough. They will keep "investigating" until they can pin
something, ANYTHING on Clinton.But NO, of course this is not
I am not sure republicans want be embarrassed in public like they were when read
the riot act by Clinton.
The Clinton's well documented reputation for mendacity precedes her.
It's difficult baggage to carry as she campaigns for 2016.
