Just imagine yourself in a time when George Bush was president. After a heartfelt meeting with Cindy Sheehan, Cindy decided to become a liberal darling by accusing Bush of all sorts of things, including murdering her son. The majority of the Credentialed Media covered Sheehan on a daily basis, often with lead stories. Flash forward to late 2012, and the majority of the CM can barely be bothered to even mention what happened in Benghazi, much less investigate. And, when they do mention the scandal, it is typically acting as an arm of Obama’s Organizing for America. Few are bothering to wonder what the parents think
(The Blaze) The families of the four Americans killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi on Sept. 11 continue to grieve, however, they are also continuing to speak out.
A father and a mother used the word “murder” when discussing the Obama administration’s response to the attack while an older brother of one of the victims is not questioning the decisions made in the heat of battle, UT San Diego reports.
Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, a State Department computer wiz killed in the assault, told the paper that she blames President Barack Obama for the death of her son.
“I believe that Obama murdered my son,” she told UT San Diego from the living room of her Clairemont home. “I firmly believe this.”
Back in the day, we were told that this was “absolute moral authority.” Of course, that’s when someone was speaking out against a Republican. Of course, when referring to Sheehan, that was before she started running to unseat Nancy Pelosi, and being arrested while protesting at the White House, saying “arrest the war criminal“, in which she was referring to Obama.
Did Obama “murder” those men? That’s the $25k question, which would be served if it were asked as “did he leave them there to die by failing to allow US forces to be sent to rescue them?” This whole Nixonian coverup is the making of Obama and the White House. Instead of coming clean and saying “yes, it was a terrorist attack” they decided to go with the notion that this was a spontaneous film review, which included RPGs and tons of professionally made al Qaeda flags and headbands. This continued through Obama’s speech to the United Nations. Then came the blamestorming of the intelligence community, the CIA, State. He didn’t bother convening the appropriate security groups, such as the National Security Council.
As they say in Washington, it’s not the action, it’s the coverup. And since Team Obama decided to go with stonewalling and misdirection, a few media outlets investigated, and we learned that the Americans in Benghazi were refused more security, were told to stop asking for more security, and were left to die. If Team Obama had taken decisive action to rescue them, they would be leaking this news left and right to cover Obama with glory. They aren’t.
And shame on most of the press for failing to investigate. The purpose of specifically mentioning them in the 1st Amendment was not so that they can go and harass some small business owner engaged in unsavory business practices, it was to make sure that the press could monitor, cover, investigate, and, if necessary, expose Government without fear of reprisal. The Framers never intended for the majority of the press to be the propaganda arm of Government and one political group.
