It is Friday, August 1, 2014, and we recognize that no one reading this blog would enjoy proceeding on their daily work or social tasks without benefit of the latest report on Benghazi. The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, is going to declassify its study of the infamous Benghazi attack. This report will make clear that NO order was ever given to ANYONE about STANDING DOWN. The report makes clear there were lapses in security, but no order was issued by then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, to result in the death of our ambassador or personnel. The House Committee makes clear that personnel “acted bravely.” However, we still have the NEW House Select Committee with a budget of $3.3 million to conduct still another investigation into nothing. We find amazing that not a single House investigation has ever been proposed to examine decisions made in the invasion of Iraq which resulted in death for over 4,000 Americans and wounding of 40,000.
As far as Republicans are concerned the death of AN American diplomat is more significant than the death of thousands of Americans. In an attempt to assist the new investigation, let me point out to Republicans:
1. The word, Benghazi, consists of two words–the name, Ben, and the word, ghazi or gaze.
2. The real issue to investigate is who is this: BEN?
3. The other issue to investigate is–what was Ben gazing at?
Please discover the answers to these questions so Americans can sleep peacefully tonight!
