You have RWNJs on my twitter insanely claiming that “Benghazi was the worst foreign policy disaster in 40 years” and Fox News continuing to speculate as to what really happened, even though we know what really happened. So many theories abound all designed to damage either President Obama or (Future President) Hillary Clinton, all of them nonsense because – there’s no rational, or even irrational, motivation on God’s green Earth for them doing any of the things the deluded fools accuse them of doing.
Then you have the hypocrisy of all the mayhem that occurred under the administration of the guy they wanted to have a beer with but they made 0 peeps about. They were just fine with wars of choice, thousands dead, torture, spying, lies and manipulation of intelligence. None of that was the worst foreign policy blunder of the past 40 years, except that THEY ACTUALLY WERE. And then to top all of that, Bullshit Mountain has to completely ignore the 13 Benghazi’s during President C Student’s reign:
January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.
June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.
October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.
February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.
May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.
July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.
December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.
March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)
September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.
January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.
March 18, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.
July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.
September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.
Yeah, no, those things happened, but whatever, sure 13 times. When it happens once to a Democrat it’s the worst foreign policy blunder in 40 years.
Bottom line for Republicans, and mark this well, is that the lesson of Whitewater was: keep investigating no matter what, until somebody gets a blow job and THEN… YOU… POUNCE!
It is one of the galling pieces of historical information that Bill Clinton was hounded for 6 years over a meaningless land deal that he lost money on, the Inquisition covered in stupid, until a malicious busy body named Linda Tripp offered her completely unrelated to the investigation but nonetheless welcome “testimony” about Monica Lewinski and a certain blue dress.
