To The Daily Sun,
I read the article from the liberal left with comments on leadership written by Robert Miller and it and prompted me to relate here what I and a legion of others had to put up with during the last administration. This also gives us a look at what we would have had to endure had Hillary been elected. I would have to write a treatise to cover only a portion of the history I have become aware of over time. I offer only one small sample here. This is not just for Mr. Miller.
Betrayal of our nation, deception and serial lies at Benghazi: On the night of Sept 11, 2012, Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens and foreign information officer Sean Smith. Shouts of Allahu Akbar echoed through the compound. Also attacked was the CIA annex where Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed by mortar bombardment as they defended their position. It was known by staff members that security at the two sites was inadequate and several requests over time were made to beef up security, but a decision was made at the State Department to keep a “low profile” and so these requests were denied.
The terrorists attacked using hand-grenades and rocket-propelled grenades, machine guns, assault rifles, truck mounted artillery, mortars and diesel canisters, the latter used to set the compound ablaze. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recognized right away that this was a pre-planned coordinated attack to coincide with the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the U.S. But President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton brushed aside Panetta’s assessment and briefed the nation the next day that the attacks were simply a spontaneous reaction to a video that dishonored Islam. During the next two weeks the president and his secretary of State continued to attempt to deflect the blame for the attack away from Islamic terrorists while blaming the attack on a reaction to the video. It was two weeks after the attack when Obama finally officially acknowledged that the attack was pre-planned by terrorists (but not Islamic terrorists, in spite of shouts of Allahu Akbar). Yo, Hillary and Obama, Listen! The attacking party was an Islamic terrorist group called Ansar al-Sharia. Both of you knew all along what it was; you just wanted to protect the image of Islam.
It seems that the most important thing on the minds of Obama and Clinton was to punish the maker of the video, not to address the real issue. Hillary lied to the mother of Sean Smith on the tarmac when they met the plane carrying her son’s body, telling her that the video caused a spontaneous reaction and the administration would see to it that the person who made the video would be punished. He indeed was. The whole scenario was a betrayal of our nation characterized by deception and a series of lies as the president and secretary of state attempted to shift blame away from the Islamic terrorists and to cover up the root cause, the tenets of fundamental Islam.
When Hillary testified under oath at a congressional hearing on the Benghazi attack, she lied when confronted with her insistence that a video was responsible for the attack and during the course of the inquiry made her infamous statement, “What difference does it make?” Yo, Hillary! You mean there is no difference between a known Islamic terrorist group pre-planning a heavily-armed attack on U.S. personnel on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks compared with a scenario of peaceful Muslims minding their own business and then spontaneously reacting to a derogatory video? No difference? The amazing thing here is that the liberal press and half our people, including educated people, bought this nonsense as serious wisdom.
Serial lying is a serious Clinton modus that has manifested itself repeatedly over time, in my opinion. I believe that Hillary lied repeatedly while expending extensive and perpetual efforts in her decades-long attempts to cover up her husband’s sexual excursions and perversions. She lied about Benghazi. She lied repeatedly when asked about whether her email contained any classified material, and lied on countless other occasions in between. It appears to me that Hillary is a lifetime unrepentant serial liar, as is her husband.
