Why the administration lied about Benghazi
Former Defense Department official and conservative commentator Jed Babbin gives a clear explanation of Obama’s motives for the Benghazi coverup: the dream of a successful “Arab spring” must be maintained. Also, Babbin, unlike many other conservatives on the Libya issue, is not a despicable hypocrite. He opposed the U.S. intervention there in 2011 and also opposed the U.S. toppling of Mubarak, which he said would lead to the establishment of an Islamic government. In the same article he also indicated that once-democratic Turkey has become an Islamic state, a hugely important fact to which many “conservatives” are still oblivious, living in ideological dream worlds rather than reality.
