Thoughts on the Latest Benghazi News, June 28, 2016
The Benghazi incident seems a microcosm of the Bush – Obama foreign policy disasters that Mrs. Clinton hopes to continue and why not, it was her stage, the one where she “dramatically” uttered, aiming to para-parrot Iulius Caesar, “we came, we saw, he died”. The cackle, however, spoiled her scene.
Unfortunately, because of her hubris and idiocy, a great many died and now, through successful stage management by her and hers, the incident seems nothing more than a political beanbag.
Para-parroting Napoleon, she saw a massive offensive as her best defense so, instead of her as the villain, she and hers portray the Republicans on the bipartisan committee that investigated the incident as mere scoundrels intending to tarnish what she and hers perceive as her pristine image. Oh what a tarnished mirror they must use. But she and hers own the media and the money and thus feel free to craft reality as it suits them at any given moment, no need for consistency or even verisimilitude, hers will buy her anything she needs. And the price, … well, that’s not her problem, after all, ought not we also to have a role?
