Why isn’t Benghazi the Next Watergate?

Why isn’t Benghazi the Next Watergate?

Last week whistleblowers testified before Congress on the terrorist attacks on our consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 where four Americans were killed, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty. The whistle blowers Gregory Hicks, Mark Thompson, and Eric Nordstrom called into question the timeline of events and the explanations given by the Obama Administration for months.

Why isn’t Benghazi the Next Watergate? The Democrats have blown the entire controversy off as a political show, while the mainstream media refuses to cover the hearings. Fox News gave the hearing live coverage while most networks did not, others like CNN had “experts” speaking over the hearing so the audience couldn’t hear what was happening.

The liberals are on a red-alert to save Obama and Hillary from looking bad and in the process are ignoring the deaths of four Americans and refusing to look into the resulting bungled cover-up. Imagine if this had happened under President Bush or any other Republican the media and the liberals would be out for blood. They would probably have already started impeachment proceedings, but the President is a Democrat, so as far as they’re concerned there’s nothing to see here.

Forty years ago a group of men were arrested for trying to break into the DNC headquarters and plant a bug for President Nixon. When he and his administration tried to cover it up, there was a media firestorm led by the Washington Post that brought down a President and sent top officials to jail.

Fast-forward to the present day, another administration has attempted to cover up another bungle and the media doesn’t care, (the Washington Post dismissed the whole thing on Twitter as Michele Malkin’s has documented here.) Even though this time American lives were lost.

There has always been a double-standard for “well-intentioned” liberals compared to “mean” conservatives but this is too far, Americans have been killed. We need to get to the bottom of this and people need to be held responsible

  1. Why won’t this become the next Watergate? Because it implicates the working relationship between “the security/intelligence services” and “Al Qaeda.” Watergate was a scandal all about one man, Richard Nixon, Benghazi is about NATO & GCC support for Al Qaeda terrorists in Libya and Syria. The CIA nor MI6 will not countenance having their shenanigans exposed unless they have already prepared a new fallback position, in which case we’ll only get limited hangout. If ever the public got wise to the CIA working with Al Qaeda back through Kosovo, Bosnia or Chcenya or even Afghanistan, there will be questions about 3,000 dead Americans on 9/11.

  2. Benghazi was the recruitment site for Al Qaeda and the training center for CIA to then send them into Syria to overthrow Assad. Then it backfired when the top coordinator for the CIA program- Amb Stevens & Seal Team 6- got killed in the process.

    No real investigation will ever take place because it would expose this. Yes the same Qaeda that “attacked us on 911″.
