Congratulations king of false equivalencies. What's sad is most Obama nut huggers want to dismiss the facts in Benghazi for political reasons. The fact that people want to know why they were denied extra security and then left to die when they came under attack is undeniable. I don't know who's worse, those in the government who are covering it up or those citizens who help them cover it up. Quite frankly, you disgust me.
It's sad when they'll twist things this far for the team, isn't it. What wouldn't they do?
There's so many levels to this thing, I'm not sure which is the most disgusting.
The outright lies about issues of national security to the American people and press.
The government-sponsored random harassment, public shaming, scapegoating, and finally arrest of a civilian engaged in an act of (maybe distasteful) speech.
Officials at the highest level of government instructing Victims' families to aim their anger at that same civilian who they absolutely knew had nothing to do with the reason those families' sons were killed.
The constant suppression of any effort to bring these facts out, followed by the "this is old news" reaction once the evidence trickles out from behind the"transparency" firewall.
If this was a Bush scandal, every one of these clowns would be screaming Impeachment.
