Benghazi then and now – no answers, no accountability – 12/10/13

Repost from December 10, 2013 There are issues that face our nation that demand answers. Issues that affect our nation in its ability to conduct effective diplomatic actions, as well as reflect our nations willingness…

The Syria questions – repost 8/31/13

Without a justification greater than – to put it crudely – ‘I am the president and I think it’s bad’, there seems to be no reason to engage Syria. What is most shocking at this time is that 285 members of Congress (including my own representative, Rep. Hanna) have not joined Rep. Rigell in demanding justification and congressional approval prior to action.

Benghazi: incompetence is apparent

Worse than this incompetence, there is apparently an on-going cover-up. Someone denied request for security before the attack, someone denied support during the attack, someone knew there was no video or protest, someone knew this was a terrorist action. Whomever “someone” is, they apparently run the government in regard to foreign policy, and they are doing so in the worst manner possible. Incompetence just fails to capture the abject disgust of the situation.

3rd Presidential debate of 2012 expectations

Of all those on stage for the 3rd presidential debate, Mitt Romney has the least to lose and the most to gain. President Obama is placed in the unenviable position that a weak performance virtually signals defeat, while a strong showing may only keep some polls even. Bob Schieffer, for his part, can only hope to regain the credibility of debate moderators.

Why does Secretary Hillary Clinton have a job?

But the Obama Administration, Secretary Clinton, and numerous Liberal and Democrat pundits feel that Secretary Clinton shouldn’t be held to the same standard of accountability as Michael Vick? For the loss of life that she is publicly demanding to take responsibility for?

Libya: Foreign policy success or fiasco

In summary, the hearing provided an insight into the current foreign policy of the United States, at least in regard to this one part of the ‘Arab Spring’. There is no functional or systemic plan apparently in place, with little concern to hear and abide by requests of the personnel on the ground. Further, the White House is apparently willing to misdirect the attention of the public to the causation of this attack, potentially for political reasons, while obscuring its own inadequacy in providing proper plans and defenses.
