What Everyone is Afraid to Say About Benghazi



With all this news coverage on Benghazi, I don’t understand why nobody will just come out and call it like it is. Why is everyone in the media afraid to say what everyone knows to be true? The attack on the embassy in Benghazi took place during the time that the President and his cabinet were campaigning for the election. 

Nobody wanted to deal with the attack, the murder of Americans serving their country, the threat of forced retaliation, or the time and effort that would be taken away from the campaign. President Obama knew that any time spent on handling the incident would be time lost, since Mitt Romney would not have to take that time. The race was close and the polls were close.

Stop beating around the bush, Washington. Stop dragging this on in hopes of someone in the State Department will roll over on their superiors and admit that the decision to downplay the crisis came from the top.

I am not in any way playing one side or the other here. If it were a Republican running for reelection, he would have done the same thing. It’s called politics. The campaign advisors did the math and urged the President toward a decision. The campaign won. There isn’t anything we can do about it now, aside from calling The Man to the stand and seeing what he has to say about it.
Am I wrong? Please let me know.
