Hillary Clinton Has Already Muffed the A.M. Phone Call
Dear readers, we know that Benghazi was a very serious breach of American security and a total failure of the Obama senior team's leadership. We also know now that the first attempt to prove this beyond doubt in congressional hearings yesterday produced mixed results. The Republican House committee says its pursuit of the truth about Benghazi will continue. The Democrats say there is no smoking gun. But, the Democrats are wrong...for reasons that are remote from the Benghazi tragedy itself. The reasons are tightly tied to the 2016 presidential ambitions of Hillary Clinton, and to the determination of the Democratic Party to support her - at all costs. The reason Benghazi is critical for the future ambitions of Hillary Clinton is closely related to her own 2008 presidential campaign ads. In one, the red telephone at the bedside of the US President rings. The ad asks if the rest of America will sleep better knowing it is the "experienced and tested" Hillary Clinton and not the inexperienced and untested Barack Obama who answers. Well, dear readers, with the tragic debacle of Benghazi, under the watch of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, we have the answer. So now the question about sleeping well is answered. NOW, THE QUESTION FOR HILLARY IS: If you can't manage one attack on a US diplomatic compound, how can we trust you to manage the US or the world's security? Answering the phone at "3 am" would have been worth zero...it would have gotten Ambassador Stevens and three other American diplomats killed. Thank you, Mrs. Clinton.
