John Kerry’s early utterances on the Benghazi scandal indicate that he is more than ready, willing, and able to follow in the fouled and fetid footsteps of Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Jay Carney, and, lest we forget, Barack Obama.
Kerry’s statement to the effect that he will not allow the memory of the victims of Benghazi to be sullied by political opportunism is a classic case of reversing the facts and telling a palpable lie to distract from a legitimate quest for facts. The politically opportunistic questions include:
· Why was the consulate so grossly unguarded in the face of overwhelming warnings?
· Why was help not forthcoming once the attack occurred?
· Why, in a frenzy of electoral concern, was the public lied to as to the nature of the attack?
It’s one thing to dodge these questions because there are no honest answers that do not implicate the Obama administration in both negligence and corruption. But dodging is one thing. It does not excuse Ms. Clinton’s psychotic “What difference does it make?” or Kerry’s upturning of logic involving an almost sacrilegious use of the death of American heroes to deflect legitimate public curiosity about what kind of egomaniacal clowns are running the show.
