Over in the Top Ten Video section is an absolutely fabulous rant by Mark Levin which perfectly summarizes how damaging the testimony of Leon Panetta and General Dempsey was to President Obama and Hillary Clinton. First, according to General Dempsey, it should have been very obvious given the available intelligence that an attack in Benghazi was likely:
Yet, neither the White House, the NSC or the CIA did anything to prepare for it. They simply ignored the intelligence. That is pretty damning. But that’s not the worst of it as far as the incompetency and cold blooded indifference of the Obama team is concerned. It is now beyond doubt that they did nothing while our people died:
There was virtually no communication between Barack Obama and his Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs:
There was no communication between the State Department and the CIA and the military:
Today’s testimony makes it clear that they made no effort whatsoever to engage the military to help our brave diplomats and agents under fire. Obama and his administration just left our people to die plain and simple:
Maybe, just maybe, this damning evidence will open more eyes as to the reasons Obama told his lies about “the video” and how utterly unfeeling he is towards those serving under his command. He obviously couldn’t be bothered to try and save their lives. He had to get a good night’s sleep. He had a campaign rally in Vegas to get to the next morning, don’t you know. Perhaps these damning revelations will cause an outcry for a broader investigation into this tragedy:
Personally, I am not holding my breath that this will actually happen. The power of the left-wing media-Matrix to sweep this all under the rug is not to be underestimated. However, the more we learn of Obama’s sorry record on foreign policy and the total incompetence and indifference shown during Benghazi, the better George W. Bush looks in retrospect, eh?
Perhaps the Benghazi revelations will encourage many to dig deeper into the study of foreign policy and war as this highly recommended piece from Victor Davis Hanson does:
If that is the only positive that comes out of this for the nation, then it’s a start.
