Since the murder of four brave Americans, including our ambassador to Libya, in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, the mainstream media have said, “There’s nothing to see here.” Newly released Benghazi documents show that there’s plenty to see. We now know a concerted effort was made by White House staff and others to obfuscate the cause of the attack for political reasons.

Politicians lying to the American people is nothing new, i.e.: “I am not a crook,” “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” and “You can keep your health plan.” I’m less concerned with the lie than what the president was doing during the attack and the reason no effort was made to rescue our folks.

It would be shameful and probably criminal if the White House vetoed military action because of the larger Benghazi dust-up it would have created.
