The “investigation” of Benghazi
The man selected to head the “investigation” of the Benghazi attack is retired veteran diplomat Thomas Pickering, whose positions, writes Diana West, “place him squarely inside the Obama foreign policy mainstream.” As an example of where Pickering is coming from, at a panel in Washington on “The Muslim Experience in America,” Pickering matter-of-factly agreed with the frenetically anti-American, pro-Muslim activist James Zogby that the “racist” and “Islamophobic” U.S. armed forces are “the enemy.”
Of course the very idea of an “investigation” is a transparent fraud. Obama’s reply to every question about the Benghazi attack and cover-up has been that he has ordered an “investigation” to find out what happened. Obama needs an investigation to find out what he himself told his administration to do and say? That such a transparent lie is allowed to stand unchallenged is proof that we are no longer living in a free society.
You referred to “the frenetically anti-American Muslim activist James Zogby.” The Muslim part seemed incorrect to me, since his name is James. Wikipedia doesn’t list religion for James but a page on his brother John says that he is Catholic, which makes sense given their Christian names.LA replies:
You’re right. I’ll change my description of Zogby from “Muslim” to “pro-Muslim.”
