The Weekly Standard lays out the whole trail of White House obfuscation and deception. Democrats, in the midterm elections, are going to have to run not just on the Obamacare debacle, but on the death of our ambassador in Benghazi and the ensuing cover-up.
It’s been more than a year since four Americans were killed in Libya and more than six months since [Press Secretary Jay] Carney dismissively declared that Benghazi “happened a long time ago.” Is he simply doing his job or does he really believe that Benghazi is a “phony scandal” trumped up by Republicans? Whatever the answer, Benghazi is not going away.
Why? “The most explosive stuff is still in front of us,” says Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican who serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and who knows the details of Benghazi as well as any member of Congress.
Too many basic questions about that night remain unanswered. Too many of the administration’s answers are inadequate or misleading. Too many of those who know what happened have not yet spoken. And if White House officials think that the continued interest in Benghazi is attributable to Republicans seeking a political issue, too many -others disagree with them.
