The Truth About Benghazi Makes a Difference (Video)

It makes a difference that we have people in government who can show why and what happened in Benghazi, in Cairo and across the region.
U.S.Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies on the September attack on U.S. diplomatic sites in Benghazi, Libya, January 23, 2013.

U.S.Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies on the September attack on U.S. diplomatic sites in Benghazi, Libya, January 23, 2013.

This really isn’t about Benghazi, which could have been secured for a fraction of the $16 million that her State Department spent on overpriced Kindle book readers and the $4.5 million it spent on art in embassies. You could have dropped the cost for fully protecting the Benghazi mission into the billion that State spent on global warming. Or the dough that Howard Gutman, campaign contributor and Ambassador to Belgium who shares some of Morsi’s views, spent renovating his embassy into a shining example of Green Sustainableness could have instead been spent on fortifying the mission.

This isn’t even about Hillary 2016. It’s about the Middle East where bad policies make a world of difference. And it’s about a political establishment that rewards the Hillary Clintons for the disasters they make while punishing the Michele Bachmanns for the truth that they tell, because it is unable to come to terms with its own mistakes.

Carter gave us the Mullah-ridden Iran and began pouring money into the Pakistani terror machine of the ISI. Obama gave us a North Africa that is beginning to look like Iran and has shoved handfuls of cash, weapons and support at any Islamist whose views and affiliations stop just short of Al Qaeda, even if he happens to be Al Qaeda’s best friend.

But what difference does it make when few Republican senators can discuss what the Brotherhood really stands for and its impact on the Middle East and the West? What difference does it make when Romney could not even begin to explain what was really going on in the region beyond a few talking points that he had memorized? What difference does it make when Hillary Clinton can give her performance, knowing it will get rave reviews from the media, and then look over her ghostwriters’  latest proofs from the chapter on Pakistan that focus on microfinance and sustainable energy?

Crimes don’t make a difference unless there are people who can expose them for what they are. Many of the things that we consider unacceptable behavior today had to be criminalized. Democrats have criminalized many ordinary things, such as buying cough syrup without a photo ID or making a movie that offends Muslims, but they have decriminalized other things, such as funding and arming terrorists and endangering the survival of the free world.

Reversing this process and reversing Hillary 2016 requires men and women who can show why what happened in Benghazi, in Cairo and across the region. And it makes a difference. Why it’s more than just another random occurrence that can be shelved until the end of time when the clear picture that Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and assorted administration officials talk about finally develops. It will make a  difference when there are enough people who realize that in the last four years, these policies have made all the difference in the world and paved the way for replacing the war of drones and hijackers with a global war on the scale of the first two.

Then the difference that Hillary dismissed and that her colleagues in Obama Inc. have held at bay for another four years will finally be made.

  5. Those who suppress the knowledge of God have no vision for righteousness, an no expectation beyond the grave. Therefore they Godless eat drink and are merry as they make the earth their playground. Their's is a world of conspiratorial relationships established to satisfy their lusts for power, for control and for luxury.

    All have sinned, but thanks be to God in Christ who takes away the sins of the world. Will you receive Christ's pardon for sin? Or will you be taken from this life without it?

    John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
