'Where There's Smoke There's Fire,' So Somebody's Lying

Hidden things have a habit of coming to light after a while. This is especially true when the hidden thing is an exposed lie, propagated by more lies and cover ups, and involves the lives of four Americans, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Manager Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were left alone to die at the hands of Islamic fanatics with no attempt at rescue on September 11, 2012.

The issue was supposedly laid to rest by a congressional hearing, but only to the satisfaction of partisan politicians, lapdog journalists and those who think Obama is incapable of mistakes and downright wrongdoing.

Why the investigation was ever carried out in the first place, without bringing in the people who were in the country and able to give first-hand accounts, is beyond me. It makes you wonder about the validity of the congressional committee that held the hearings.

It was supposedly proven that there was no stand down order given to prevent available assets from rushing to the aid of Ambassador Stevens and the besieged warriors who were fighting for their lives, but that premise is being disputed by some men who were on the ground, close enough to drive to Benghazi and improve the hopeless odds.

They had gone as far as to load up into a vehicle when they were told not to go by a superior. That, my friends, constitutes a stand down order, and whether it came from an operative in Tripoli or the situation room (oh sorry, the bedroom) of the White House, it was given to capable men who were prepared to enter the fray. Yet, they were called back for some reason known only to the upper echelons of federal power.

This thing does and always has stunk to high heaven. There is a many-layered purpose for this cover up, and there are enough theories, or suppositions, around to invoke the old, “where there's smoke there's fire,” idiom.

Why was Ambassador Stevens in a hot spot like Benghazi accompanied by only one security guard?

Why was a downright lie, about some video offensive to Muslims, circulated by the White House as a reason for a spontaneous uprising, and what type of “spontaneous” crowd comes together, on the spur of the moment, with weapons like the ones that they were carrying around with them that day?

Why was the maker of this mysterious, offensive film never brought forward to be interviewed by the American media, instead of being arrested for a parole violation and locked away, not to be heard from since?

Why was it against the law for him to make whatever kind of video he wanted to? Is he not protected by the 1st Amendment of the Constitution?

Why was Hillary Clinton not held accountable for the lack of security surrounding Ambassador Stevens, instead of being sickeningly fawned over by the Democrats on the committee?

Why did Obama and Hillary stand over the coffins of these four men, who had given their lives for their country, in the presence of their grieving families and lie about the origins of the Muslim mob that murdered them?

Why does Hillary think that it makes no difference whether this attack was carried out by organized Muslim militias or a few people wandering the streets of Benghazi, who just happened to be in the neighborhood and decided to kill a few Americans?

There are too many “whys” and “hows” and not enough solid answers concerning this debacle, but at least one of the lies has been exposed.

There was a stand down order given, and it could very well have cost the lives of four Americans.

The least we owe them is to find out who is responsible.

Come on, Congress!  Get back in the game; you work for us, not the Obama administration or the Committee to Elect Hillary.

Are there still enough honorable persons left on Capitol Hill to do what they’re sworn to do, and will you (Washington) represent the people of the United States of America?

Well the people of the United States of America want the truth, all of it, raw and unedited.

This nation needs a leader not a liar.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
