I have to excerpt a bit more from Mark Steyn's weekend column on the Obama administration's refusal to send military help to Americans under siege in Benghazi and the ongoing cover-up:
And, in the weeks that followed, the government of the United States lied to its own citizens as thoroughly and energetically as any totalitarian state, complete with the midnight knock on the door from not-so-secret policemen sent to haul the designated fall-guy into custody.November 6th. Be there. Latex gloves optional. (RTR.)
This goes far beyond the instinctive secretiveness to which even democratic governments are prone. The Obama administration created a wholly fictional story line, and devoted its full resources to maintaining it. I understand why Mitt Romney chose not to pursue this line of argument in the final debate. The voters who will determine this election are those who voted for Obama four years ago and this time round either switch to the other fellow or sit on their hands. In electoral terms, it’s probably prudent of Mitt not to rub their faces in their 2008 votes. Nevertheless, when the president and other prominent officials stand by as four Americans die and then abuse their sacrifice as contemptuously as this administration did, decency requires that they be voted out of office as an act of urgent political hygiene.
Also this: Denver TV reporter Kyle Clark asked Obama the question that needed asking but the president ducked it, weakly pleading ignorance (!) as a defense. Shame on him and his cowardly administration.
Question for the President: Why no military rescue for Americans under siege in Benghazi?
