On a recent trip to Paris, I once again got to spend some time with a gentleman I regard as one of America’s most seasoned and best-informed military analysts. I am referring to Bing West. Bing, a former marine, was Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Reagan. I have read Bing’s excellent books and never miss Bing’s outstanding critiques at National Review Online. I have been of the view that the Obama administration deceived and in fact lied to Americans about the tragic death of Ambassador Stevens and other Americans in the Benghazi terrorist raid. Well this morning, Bing West has done America a big favor by laying out the whole grizzly Benghazi quagmire of lies and deception. Here it is! Read Bing’s article here.
I do not speak for Mr. West, but there is no way President Barack Obama should be returned by Americans for a second term in the White House. Not only has he presided over the worst employment debacle in memory, lost America’s AAA bond rating, and told my small business clients that they did not build their own businesses, but he also is not to be trusted on issues of national security. If you do not believe this is so, you either did not read Mr. West’s presentation with care or believe that Mr. West falsely presents the facts. And the latter is certainly not the case.
