Per the media: “Nothing new to see here,” or “No bombshell regarding Clinton.”
Here’s what we already knew:
She (either personally or those under her) did not give them the extra security they requested, even when every other country was pulling people out.
She knew it was a terrorist attack and continued to lie to us and to the families of those who died, claiming it was about a video.
What does this mean? Well, it means that she has poor judgement and administrative skills. It also means that she put her prestige over the safety of Americans. It also means that she was more concerned about the presidential campaigns of 2012 and 2016 than telling us the truth. It also means she thought she was smarter/slicker than Americans and would get away with it. It also means that she believes the press has her back. And they do, so yeah, I can see that.
Here’s the new things we learned:
The Secretary of Defense ordered the military to help. And someone reversed that order.
The troops were ready to go, but the higher-ups were more concerned about how the troops would appear and had them change in and out of uniform 3 times as they were concerned that it would look too much like an invasion.
While our people were fighting for our lives, they were already looking to spin the attack and blame the video.
What does this mean? Dear God, what does this mean? That they are out of touch? That they are cold and calculating? No. Originally, I thought that the reason they didn’t try to rescue them was because they were afraid of making the death toll higher. Or that they might ruin our reputation in that part of the world. But it’s worse than even that! What it means is that they didn’t engage because they were too busy spinning it. The story was more important than the reality. They are more concerned about their personal reputation than American lives.
What don’t we know?
Who reversed the order to help? They refuse to answer that question, and that is the most important question of all.
Of course, it had to be Obama. Maybe, possibly, Clinton might have bullied her way, but Obama is my bet.
God help us if she’s elected…
Long Live the Constitution
