It’s Not the Crime, but the Cover-Up

From the brilliant mind of my friend, Mr. Alan Caruba. My commentary follows his great story.

It’s Not the Crime, but the Cover-Up

Benghazi Victims

By Alan Caruba

I still recall the long months of the Watergate scandal that began with a botched break-in of the Democratic Party headquarters in Washington, D.C. on June 17, 1972. It was directed by a group of presidential operatives dubbed the “plumbers” inside the White House. No one died, but a number of the operatives, including the Attorney General, John Mitchell, went to jail!

As always, it is not the crime, but the cover-up that brought down the Nixon presidency. It was the testimony of John Dean III, a top aide to Nixon, who revealed the extent of the corruption that existed and Nixon’s complicity.

The initial revelations and subsequent congressional investigations did not lead to a swift application of the law. Indeed, it would not be until August 9, 1974 that Nixon would resign, the first and only President to do so.

Two years would pass and, if one applies this to the Obama presidency, that means he has some twenty-four months left in office, a period of time in which he can do a lot of damage, assuming events play out as they did in the 1970s. Obama’s conduct of the presidency is a stain on the office at this point and his personal conduct an insult to Americans struggling to find work, pay their mortgages, put their children through college, and maintain any faith in their government.

Regarding the Benghazi hearings, and the actions of our Congress; the hearing begins tomorrow, the mainstream media is trying to ignore these hearings, but that can’t be allowed to happen. Conservative BLOGGERS must keep the Benghazi story in front of the American people.

This hearing, its findings and final results, will either be the END of Obama and Clinton or will signal that the demise of America is a certainty.

DO NOT hesitate to contact your Congressman and tell them to get on board and to get VERY vocal in support of THE TRUTH being shown the light of day! The victims of Benghazi deserve the truth and the American people need to know the truth about Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Remember, these Congressmen and Senators work for US, you and me, make your feelings known.


Benghazigate is REAL and if you’re not angry you’re not paying attention.

“I think the dam is about to break on Benghazi. We’re going to find a system failure before, during, and after the attacks. We’re going to find political manipulation seven weeks before an election. We’re going to find people asleep at the switch when it comes to the State Department, including Hillary Clinton. The bond that has been broken between those who serve us in harm’s way and the government they serve is huge — and to me every bit as damaging as Watergate.” ~ Sen. Lindsey Graham

WAKE UP AMERICA! We either rise up and SAVE this nation or America as we once knew it is over and done!

    I’m incensed! I’ve been staying on this since it happened. I wrote to Congressman Pete Sessions as you well know, and I wrote to Senators Cornyn and Cruz as well.
    America, wake up if you haven’t yet! If we let this slide the least little bit we write our own epitaph I fear.

    Go one step better than Watergate…

    One thing about Watergate is that Nixon didn’t have the Mainstream Media on his side and covering for him.

    I’ve got friends in the military that have done embassy duty. I know folks in the military stationed in places many people have never heard of. My son is in the Guard. It scares the heck out of me to think they could be deployed or in a situation overseas where they come under attack and our government doesn’t do a think to help them. We can literally fly a F-15 from California to England in less than seven hours; the amount of time our men fought off the attack while the Regime watched and did nothing. I sure hope General Ham and Admiral Gaouette are called to testify.

    I will be watching these hearings as closely as I can, given my work schedule. We need to know the truth of what happened in Benghazi.

  5. Bunkerville says:

    Well said. The time is at hand to send this crew on their way. I too recall watergate. It was a slip of one sentence that sent Nixon on his way. In his case it was the tapes. Let us hope for something similar.

  6. Doc Roy says:

    Obama is a notorious ditherer, a very poor decision maker, especially when the decision must be made about Muslims. Remember his slow, slow, slow decision for troops in Afghanistan. Surely in this case dealing with Muslim terrorists he told Hillary to “handle it” and ran for cover. The MSM is bound at all costs to protect both Obama and Hillary and you can be sure this mess will be given to the cats to bury it as soon as possible. A week after the hearings there will be only silence. Hillary’s future is at stake and the Dems and the MSM will clear her quickly.

    “WAKE UP AMERICA! We either rise up and SAVE this nation or America as we once knew it is over and done!” Glad you wrote that! This IS a big deal for a whole lot of reasons. The integrity of this nation is at stake and the Dems obviously lack any shred of integrity.
