My blogging adventure began in December 2013, bringing me late to the Benghazi reporting game. However, then and now, there remain plenty of empty seats in this game. The mainstream press finally seems to have shaken free of the hypnotic Obama chants of “change you can believe in” and has begun asking a few questions. Diplomad made me think about how much bloggers have written on Benghazi vs those card-carrying press reporters. We’ve heard so many lies, from Susan Rice’s Sunday spin marathon to yesterday’s Bret Bair interview of a former Obama staffer, who stated, “Dude, this was like two years ago!”. Will the light of truth finally shine on Benghazi? I doubt it. So much has been ignored by the mainstream press, to shield this administration’s appalling dereliction of duty. Hillary flew the coop to Peru, in the wake of Benghazi and Obama continued fund-raising. Getting to the truth, well, let’s refer back to my September 22, 2013 post on Hillary’s illustrious blue-ribbon panel entrusted to investigate Benghazi, who didn’t bother to record the interviews in their investigation. Their staff took notes and they compiled summaries – here’s how important accuracy was to these high-profile panelists:
In addition, the Committee has been unable to assess with any specificity what
information witnesses conveyed to the ARB during interviews. The ARB did not maintain
official transcripts of the testimony provided to the Board. Instead, it developed reports of each
interview based on the notes of staff and Board members. Mullen testified:
Q. How were the interviews recorded? Was there a court reporter?
Was there video? Was there audio recording? Note taking?
A. Note taking.
Q. And none of the other options?
Q. And how did it get put together?
A. The staff would put a summary of the interview together. We
would — the members would be able to review that summary
shortly after the interview.
Q. Any concerns with that?
Q. That it wasn’t transcribed or recorded?
A. No. From the standpoint of content, substance and content, I found
them to be very accurate.
Anyways, here’s a list of some of my previous posts on Benghazi. but hey, what difference at this point does it make?
