Benghazi Is The New “Freddie Krueger” Obsession and Romance for the GOP — It Just Keeps “Coming Back!”

By Frank Byronn Glenn  — Given the dozens of attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the relentless pursuit of hoped for  impeachable offenses in the non-existent partisan criminality in the IRS treatment of non-profits — and the sluggish and grumbling exhortations about “Fast and Furious”  — should we really be surprised that the GOP alleges to have found the “smoking gun” of Benghazi in some emails at the White House that prove the Obama administration knew the Benghazi attacks were acts of terrorism.  Dudes!  President Obama came out in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attacks and called the attack an act of  “terrorism” and warned the perpetrators that acts of “terrorism” would not dissuade us from our resolve to seek out and neutralize terrorist actions and bad actors around the world.  Granted, the Republicans admittedly have nothing to run on in 2014 — or 2016 — at this point so they are desperate for something — anything — but guys, this is just a little bit too crazy for even the craziest among us.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

So… Republicans — let me set the record straight on Benghazi once and for all right here. There is no there, there.  And even if there was, it would still be hypocritical and preposterous for the GOP to take the “faux outrage” positions they  and their wholly-owned subsidiary propaganda  buddies at Foxx News do.  Let’s take a for instance — or two.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Let’s assume for a  minute that in the days leading up to the night of the Benghazi attack — and while the attack was in progress, even — the administration was asleep at the switch.  Let’s say they were all ballroom dancing —  or, better yet, doing the “cha-cha”  in the White House “Situation Room” — and word  came in that Benghazi was under attack.  Let’s imagine that the response of Barack Obama and his inattentive and unconcerned administration minions were just to keep on — keep busy having fun — as the Republicans fantasize — and in some cases, even allege — too lost in  their own dream world of amusement to be bothered to do anything about it — in response.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Let’s imagine that — as bullets were flying in Benghazi — and people were  dying — (four to be exact) — that the President and his fellow revelers continued dancing.  Sashaying to the right — sashaying to the left — stepping on their penises every other step along the way, in their consummate ignorance and incompetence and uncaring — playing violins and blowing gazzoos,  degrading each other with trashy plastic saxophones  — in frivolous debauchery and abandon.  Let’s say they all were intoxicated — or high on marijuana — or both.  And that they were all  passing great big voluminous clouds of foul-smelling flatulence — without so much as an “excuse me” for the indiscretion —  laughing —  howling hysterically even — when the news came in that four people had been killed in the Benghazi.  And let’s say that for weeks the staff at Benghazi had warned the Obama Administration that an attack was coming, and had asked for additional security — and the President Obama and Hillary Clinton had laughed at them — made fun of them — dissed them, and even called them “light-weights” and “uncommitted” and lacking of “gravitas”.  And let’s say, furthermore, that hours before the attackers hit Benghazi,  the Benghazi staff received word that the attackers were on their way, and that it was their intent to burn down the station and kill its occupants.  The staff cried out to Hillary Clinton  and Barack Obama, personally,   to send in the  special forces — or the 82d Airborne — to save them  — and Hillary and Barack did nothing.  They sipped sarsaparillas and had pedicures and neck massages — while Jane Fonda sang sweet, melodic and deeply moving anti-war songs of peace and resurrection.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Let’s imagine that every word of what I have just written above,  is true. And — moreover — that every accusation the Republicans have ever  made about how the Obama Administration handled Benghazi –was true.  That the GOP  could just “make-up” every horrible thing imaginable  that they wanted to — and allege it had happened — and it would come true —  and the American people would accept it whole-heartedly and unquestioningly — because the deeply  trust-worthy Republicans and their right wing “truth-sayers” at Foxx News said it was true — and they could always be counted on — so it had to be true.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

So — even if every bad thing about the Obama Administration’s handling of the Benghazi affair ever said — or alleged — was true — it still wouldn’t be as bad as what the Bush/Cheney Administration did– initially, deliberately, consciously, repeatedly — and continuously — in the lead up to and in the prosecution of the war in Iraq.  Bush, Cheny, Condi, and Powell lied from the beginning to get us into the war.  They lied about the reasons for it.  They lied about how it would be received by the Iraqi people.  They lied about how much it would cost, how it would be paid for, how long it would last, and what the end result would be.  And they lied about WMD.  In fact, the United States military was the only WMD in Iraq — for the Iraqi people — and for the several thousand American soldiers and contractors that died for Bush and Cheney’s lies.  They even outed a CIA agent (a federal crime), ruined her career, and put the lives of other undercover agents around the world at risk — because her husband dared to call “crap” on “one”  of their lies.  And yes — it was tragic that four Americans on duty in Benghazi died needlessly.  And it was also tragic that several hundred thousand Iraqi men, women, and children died in Iraqi because of Bush and Cheney’s lies.  And it is t tragic that several thousand Americans  died needlessly in Iraq — as a result of Bush and Cheney’s scheming, dreaming — and lies.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Can’t you just hear  the loved ones of all the people Bush and Cheney killed deliberately  — screaming  into the empty darkness — in grief — in despair — in anger —  still not believing it was allowed to happen — not understanding why — or how — it happened ––  and not comprehending why the American people do not demand justice — and retribution — for those horrible crimes.   And then they pick up the paper — or watch the news — and see the Republicans — and Foxx News — running around hysterically demanding an explanation — demanding to know “all the facts” (every single one ) in their “faux” fury –and their rage “to get to the bottom of Benghazi”.  Give me a break, Republicans.  You should be very ashamed!

I think the saddest thing, though, is that many of these Republicans and those people who worked  at Foxx during the Bush/Cheney years — are still in office — or still work at Foxx.  And where was their outrage and concern for good government then?   The American people deserve better  than this.! And what is sadder, still — is that ordinary Americans are — for the most part — far better  people than most those who represent them will ever be!
