September of 2012, just days after the brutal murder of 4 Americans at the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, I was perhaps the first to say outright that our government had lied to us about what happened. It’s been nearly 2 years, and through subsequent hearings, leaks, investigative reports, and ever changing stories from the current administration, I’ve never had to recant or clarify my original blunt statement. This week, Judicial Watch finally obtained bombshell emails revealing that top White House aide Ben Rhoads instructed Susan Rice to go on 5 Sunday talk shows and spin the lie that the attack at Benghazi was due to a You Tube video. It took a lawsuit to get that piece of information, but even caught with its pants down, the White House continued to play the American public for fools with indefensible comments like these from White House press hack Jay Con-Man Carney. But it’s not only President Obama who has, as Ricky Ricardo would say, “some splaining to do,” but should Hillary Clinton announce her candidacy for President, she will have some “splaining to do” as well. When she was a candidate for President in 2008, her famous ad attempted to portray her as one ready to take the call about a crisis at 3am; As it turned out, it wasn’t a 3am call waking her out of an Ambien induced stupor we needed to worry about. It was a call around 5 in the afternoon coming from desperate American personnel under attack and begging for their lives. And now, there is no record that she even had a conversation with the President that night about the events that would end the lives of 4 Americans. There is record of the President going to bed and getting a good night’s sleep before he jetted off the next day in Air Force One for a political fund raiser in Las Vegas. But no special forces were scrambled to rush to the sound of the guns in Benghazi to try and rescue our fellow Americans under siege. The cover up of the original lie was told so often, that Democratic members of Congress became immune to the tragedy and fought any attempts to get to the truth as partisan witch hunts, most of the mainstream press ignored the story, and the White House even became so bold as to call the entire incident a “phony scandal.” President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Hillary Clinton all looked the family members in the eyes and promised they would get to the bottom of it. They even said they would find out who was responsible for that little video. Maybe that was easier than trying to find out who was responsible for the actual murders and the subsequent lies and cover-ups. They knew then and they know now the attack wasn’t about a video. We once had real newspapers and broadcast news outlets that cared about a government lying to the people. Lying and covering up in Watergate ultimately resulted in a President resigning and several of his top aides going to prison. But there are big differences between Watergate and Benghazi—in Watergate, the press didn’t look the other way and neither did Congress. And in Watergate, no one died. I promised Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, that I wouldn’t forget the sacrifice of his son. I keep a photo of Tyrone that Charles gave me in my office as reminder. That photo won’t come down until the truth does and somebody answers for what happened. And I’ll serve notice to Hillary if she runs for President….sooner or later, you’ll have to answer for this: “What difference at this point does it make?” Those 4 murdered that night couldn’t run or hide. And neither can Hillary.

    Throughout all the discussions about Benghazi I have never heard anyone address the issue of the Libyan military or the Benghazi police. In other words, why didn't the State Department notify the Libyan military that our consulate was under attack. Isn't it true that the host country is obligated to at the very least offer police/military protection in case of an attack on another country's embassy or consulate? If our State Department had deemed that the Libyan military and/or the Benghazi police were incapable of offering such protection, then why did we have a consulate in such a volatile area? But at the very least, they should have been notified, yet apparently our State Dept. did not.

    Concerning the conflict in Iraq. The best stand the US can take is "stay out." Let the Muslims kill one another as they seem bent on doing.

    Susan Rice once a Security Council staffer reportedly asked in a teleconference during the killings in Rwanda " If we use the word genocide and are seen as doing nothing..what will be the effect on the November (congressional) election? This statement is in the book God sleeps in Rwanda.
