General Petraeus resigns and says he won’t be testifying next week before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Benghazi. Now we learn that Hillary Clinton is too busy, “scheduling conflicts”, to testify before the House Foreign Affairs committee, also investigating what happened in Benghazi. Hillary Clinton is also stepping down from her position as Secretary of State. It seems no one wants to talk about why 4 brave Americans didn’t get help when they asked for it and so desperately needed it. Surely it wasn’t all about the re-election of the President. Was it? Surely he wouldn’t have let 4 brave Americans die! But we need to know what happened so that it NEVER, EVER, happens again. How we will do that when top officials involved won’t answer questions about it? That’s making it all the more suspicious. Will we ever learn the truth or will the coverup continue to work?
What’s with the ‘scheduling conflicts’? I seem to recall that the President had a similar ‘conflict’ when the Israel Prime Minister wanted to meet with him. The President was campaigning in Nevada. What are the priorities of this administration? As economists would say, ‘Revealed Preference’.
We know that Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress rather than testify on the Fast and Furious program. Now it appears likely that Holder will leave his position as Attorney General, making it certain that he will never testify on the program. We will never know why two Americans died and many more Mexicans. Not a coverup exactly, they simply refuse to discuss it. That’s also effective in burying the truth.
Is the Petraeus resignation really about him not wanting to testify on the Hill? If not, why did he wait until this week to resign when the affair has been known for many months? The timing is rather suspect, to say the least.
How many more people in the Obama Administration will resign to avoid scrutiny on Capitol Hill and to protect the President? I hope Woodward and Bernstein are on it!
