“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”
Those were the immortal words of the infamous Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in regard to the murder of four Americans: U. S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, one member of his staff and two security personnel. She was basically saying, what difference does it make, if the American people were lied to and then the lie is covered up. What difference does it make if the President intentionally lies to the American people? In other words, according to her it is totally acceptable when the President and his entire administration lies and then covers it up.
Obama apparently has the same attitude because he called the investigation a political sideshow. Is this the way this administration feels about informing the public regarding questions it might have about our government? Are questions that we might have concerning our government’s actions, considered political sideshows? What difference does it make if we question our government? I agree it doesn’t make any difference in the outcome of the events because they are water under the bridge. However… it does make a difference for the integrity of our government and the future of our government, why it happened.
If we are to expect integrity in our government then we should always be able to question “our” government and “our” leadership. When that is no longer possible then it is no longer “our” government. You can call the questioning of the Benghazi attack and its subsequent related events anything you want, but it is our right to question it. Sideshow or not, it is for us to decide and question. When we question our government it should never be on a side show but instead on center stage. It is after all a show, a show of what makes this country great, our ability to question. When you belittle or ridicule our questioning you are ridiculing and belittling the American governing system.
As for “What difference does it make?”, it makes all the difference in the world, because the difference is whether we can question or not. That is what difference it makes! When our government has the attitude that it makes no difference if we question their actions, then we are headed for a very bad future.
It is bad enough that the administration can be so callous about what difference it makes about how and why four Americans died, but to be the same way about our questioning of the events is just not acceptable. We should always have questions when Americans die. It is a dereliction of duty as American citizens to not question. It is also a dereliction of duty for an elected official to avoid those same questions.
This week when Jen Psaki, the spokesperson for the United States Department of State, was asked about certain information on Benghazi , she actually had the nerve to say ““All right… Well, you’ll have to take my word for it…”. Since when do the American people, have to take a spokesperson’s word for anything? Why should anyone take the word of a spokesperson of an administration that is already being questioned about lying to the American people? Isn’t that like saying, trust me we didn’t and won’t lie to you about any past lies? Isn’t that why we are asking the questions in the first place because we don’t know if we can trust what they are saying? If we could trust them we wouldn’t be asking for the evidence would we?
Obama has already expressed his dislike for our governing system. He made that apparent when he said “Our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes.” This statement shows how he feels about our system. First off he must not like the system because he wants to change it. Secondly, he doesn’t like the way it was created to stop “corrupt change” from creeping in. It was intentionally made to resist change for that very reason.
If the change desired doesn’t corrupt the heart of the system then the change should be easy to implement. However, if it does corrupt the system, then the difficulty involved is intentional and warranted. But what difference does it make if the government corrupts the Constitution and its ideals? What difference does it make if America is changed to a socialist state? What difference does it make if we aren’t allowed to question our government? What difference does it make for you? It makes a big difference to me, and I can only hope it does to you also.
