One word keeps ticking in the back of my mind when I encounter editorial huffing and political puffing over what is known as “the Benghazi Affair.”
A mob attacked a U S Consular outpost; four Americans were killed. (Details of dubious veracity available at your nearest media outlet.)
That ticking word
Spend a few minutes contemplating the relative costs of that calamity, and “the Benghazi affair.” People killed, exiled, tortured; expenditure of money, energy, national image. There have been, and there never be, Congressional outrage over the lies, the killing, the trillions of dollars which characterize that debacle.
How can a sane person take seriously the hypocritical politicizing of this Benghazi affair? Blame Obama? Let’s talk about that after the World Court gets Bush and Cheney, et all, into the dock on war crimes charges.
