Skip to comments.CURL: Benghazi is the only scandal that matters
Posted on 05/20/2013 4:28:02 AM PDT by don-o
Meanwhile, no one even knows where the president was the night a U.S. ambassador was murdered, or why the U.S. military sent no help. No one knows who inserted into official talking points a false story that an anti-Islam video led to the massacre. And no one seems to care least of all the White House.
But be warned, White House: Bob Woodward, who knows a thing or two about scandals and cover-ups, isnt falling for the double head fake.
If you read through all these emails, the Watergate reporter said, you see that everyone in the government is saying, Oh, lets not tell the public that terrorists were involved, people connected to al Qaeda. Lets not tell the public that there were warnings. I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts to the conversations, and he personally went through them and said, Oh, lets not tell this, lets not show this.
I would not dismiss Benghazi.
Too bad, Bob. Washingtons press corps already has.

All the scandals matter but it’s Bengazi that will keep Hillary out of the white house in 2016. Bengazi demonstrates that she too can’t handle a 3:00 AM phone call.
Nobody died in “Watergate”
Where is David Patraeus?
Watergate was a 3rd rate, John Dean burglary operation to steal the DNC blackbook of prostitutes that included his future wife.
Nixon never was involved in the break-in - only the cover-up.
Where, indeed. I thought he was the other shoe?
Nixon would have gotten away clean if he had destroyed the tapes. I never understood why he didn’t
HERE'S SOMETHING DAVID AXELROD DREAMED UP IN COLLUSION WITH RAHM EMANUEL---AND I QUOTE Obomba called on Washington to not get sidetracked by "fleeting" issues. "I know it can seem frustrating sometimes when it seems like Washington's priorities aren't the same as your priorities. Others may get distracted by chasing every fleeting issue that passes by." OBOMBA ENDED WITH "the middle class will always be my number one focus. Period."
Mmmmmmmm.....the con artist routine. Sounds like something Madoff would say to reel in the suckers.
The term "suppression of the vote" is getting more and more relevant----it is the term Obamba continually used against conservatives in the campaign.
The O Team cunningly scared conservatives into thinking intelligent, rational, time- honored voter ascertainment techniques was "hatemongering" and "suppression of the vote."
At the same time, the Obomanations calculatedly suppressed conservative votes via the IRS (and God knows where else)---- they revved up their vote by using the "suppression" angle.
SUMMATION You can't use logic when dealing with the Obamatons----they are practiced con artists---and know every trick in the book.
Lemme hear that again, Bob.
WATERGATE JOURNO BOB WOODWARD: "You look at the whole Benghazi thing. You look at those talking points and the initial draft by the CIA very explicitly said 'we know that activists who have ties to Al-Qaeda were involved in the attack.' Then you see what comes out a couple of days later and there is no reference to this. This is a business where you have to tell the truth and that did not happen here."(Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.com ...
Yep - if you’re gonna erase 17 minutes, why not just destroy the entire tape?
I never understood why Nixon would not finger John Dean for being the mastermind of the burglary. Probably the same blind side that kept him from destroying the tapes.
I’d love to have a one-on-one with Monica Crowley....and also get her to spill all Nixon told her about Watergate.
Scary stuff for a Monday morning. I knew all these things, but no one ever put all the pieces together so you can clearly see the picture. Note to follow comments at WT. Then make sure you go to the link at Long Island Press.
I should have done my bible reading and prayer time BEFORE I read this.
This little Crap Weasel has had 20 years to speak up and tell it like it is with regard to Leftist criminal acts in and around the White House. Silence is all that emanated from him.
Now he has the gall to try to act like he really gives a ---- what happens to our nation? I have nothing but contempt for this fraud.
F U Bob Woodward! F U!
I now believie that the key to Benghazi is “where was waldo” when the sh_t hit the fan.
If we keep asking that question we will drive them nuts if nothing else.They will have to lie to cover up what he was up to.
It’s too much of a coincidence that all these scandals popped up after Benghazi got hot. Wag the Dog anyone. Trouble is it just might backfire on this Black President.
I think the IRS crimes are going to be the thing that really resonates. However, all of these “scandals” are tied together by one thing: the creation of a government dedicated to controlling information and suppressing dissent or even questions in order to keep itself in power.
Benghazi was the result of bad policy, namely, the desire at all times to side with or not oppose radical Islam while simultaneously downplaying or even putting at risk Americans or American interests, a policy that went way beyond Libya. Even many Americans who might be left-leaning would probably object to an official policy such as this, so clearly the thing to do was the suppress knowledge of this event. Exactly the same thing was involved in the AP spying, because while the government was going to release the information about the Yemen plot and the successful CIA involvement the next day anyway, it wanted to manipulate the information and did not want any objective reporting of facts.
So I think just “writing off” the IRS and AP “scandals” would actually lead to the diminishing of Benghazi and would let the regime simply pass it off as well-meaning confusion rather than policy.
