Benghazi? What does it matter, it happened a long time ago.

hcb“What difference does it make?” “Benghazi happened a long time ago.”

Do these people really think these are acceptable answers to questions about murder?

The Obama administration’s handling of the killing of four Americans in Benghazi is nothing short of disgusting. First they blamed a video that they knew darn good and well had nothing to do with it.

Then they said they needed to take more time to find out all the facts. Their plan seems to be: 1) Lie, 2) Procrastinate, 3) Bully, and 4) Sneer. Not necessarily in that order at all times, they like to change the order around as they need to.

So their first tactic was to simply lie and blame a video they knew had absolutely nothing to do with it. And when that was questioned they sneered AND lied about that saying they never said it wasn’t terror. Then they decided they shouldn’t say anything more without further investigation.

Now they have procrastinated as much as they could so that Hilary Clinton could yell and ask what difference it makes. With all the training required in schools lately about bully-prevention, our own government is showing kids how to do it right. If you just yell at people they will shut up and leave you alone. Great role-modeling. And now they are sneering that it was such a long time ago.

Jodi Arias is alleged to have killed her boyfriend FIVE YEARS ago and that story is all over the news. Yet American heroes murdered EIGHT MONTHS ago is too long to bother with?

How about if every time a plane crashes, instead of trying to find out what caused it, the plane manufacturers just shouted, “What difference does it make?” Or maybe they should obstruct the investigation long enough to say it’s just been too long to worry about it. Who really needs to know whether a plane is safe or not, just trust them.

How about if I shoot someone? Do I get to scream at the cops when they arrive and start asking me questions? Do I get to yell and bully and ask, “What difference does it make?”

Somehow I don’t think they would just say, “Oh, OK, you’re right, it won’t change anything. Sorry to bother you.” And if I had my lawyer just drag things out for a few months, we could then sneer that it was such a long time ago, like they are simple-minded idiots for even asking. That way the prosecutor will just feel embarrassed and go away, right?

Mrs. Clinton, it makes a difference who is responsible for Benghazi and how it happened because you simply cannot make sure” it” doesn’t happen again if you don’t even know what “it” is.

Mr. Carney, somehow I think if it was one of your own family members who was murdered, you wouldn’t put a time limit on finding out what happened.

It matters because there are still plenty of us out here who believe accountability, honesty, and integrity are the cornerstones of our society. And we will continue to demand answers no matter how much time has passed, how much we are lied to, how much we are sneered at, or how much we are bullied. Our service men and women have our backs – they deserve to know we have theirs.
