In an all too familiar attempt to villify President Obama, not to mention Ambassador Rice as well as Secretary Clinton, whom they fear even more than recently, Speaker Pelosi and currently, SenatorWarren, they’ve once again made an issue of a nonissue.
The Benghazi tragedy can be laid at their own door. Who else but radical House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy protection funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 followed by$331 million in fiscal 2012? Secretary Clinton’s warning that it would be “detrimental to America’s national security” was disregarded. What’s more, the assassinated ambassador himself had refused the addition of cumbersome military personnel.
The Benghazi witch hunt is part of an aggressive and growing list of Republican grievances and distractive ploys—a not unexpected backlash that began on Mr. Obama’s very first day as president.
Congress and the Benghazi Fabrication
Their ill-repute is at its height
Still what they’ve done is to invite
More censure but the vicious Right
Insistent in their mindless spite
And desperation to distract
Are saying fantasy is fact—
Unlike some other ones who know
This so-called scandal’s really faux.
Yet any turnabout is quite
Regrettably nowhere in sight.
