The Occupant of the Oval Office held his first news conference after the election. It appeared like a staged affair, with him calling on pre-arranged reporters with likely pre-arranged questions. Despite the Middle East being on the brink of a full-fledged war, the economy facing what the media is calling a fiscal cliff, and the entire Administration embroiled in damage control over the Benghazi murders and the sex tryst of the CIA Director, there was no new news produced. It was milk toast questions and answers with campaign responses and a continuation of the stonewalling, bait and switch and lies that preceded the election. Nothing was more exemplary of this than the president’s response on Benghazi.
ABC News‘ Jonathan Karl delivered a soft ball pitch about Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham wanting “Watergate-style” hearings on Benghazi and expressing alarm over UN Ambassador Susan Rice possibly being nominated to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. The president answered: ” If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. Ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.”
Then the president blatantly lied to the news media and the American people, saying, “We have provided every bit of information that we have, and we will continue to provide information. And we’ve got a full-blown investigation, and all that information will be disgorged to Congress. And I don’t think there’s any debate in this country that when you have four Americans killed, that’s a problem. And we’ve got to get to the bottom of it, and there needs to be accountability. We’ve got to bring those who carried it out to justice. They won’t get any debate from me on that.” He continued to say that when he found out “our folks were in danger” he ordered his team to “do whatever we need to do to make sure they’re safe.”
Senators McCain and Graham, if they have the courage, should take the president up on his challenge to go after him. The extent of the president’s investigation to date has been to change his story, deny the events of Benghazi, create a media diversion with the revelation of an affair, and to stonewall Congressional requests for testimony from the CIA Director and the Secretary of State. This Administration is similar to what Ezekiel found when the LORD had him dig into the temple wall and found a door. Ezekiel 8:9 says, “And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.” For those who have eyes to see, the LORD will reveal much if you will seek the truth.
