As I have written and said several times since the deadly attack at Benghazi, the truth will NOT be revealed by the Obama administration and it may take years before we actually know what was going on, why the attack took place, who gave the order to stand down once the attack was reported to administration heads, and why was an amateur filmmaker blamed, arrested and jailed when it was well known his video production had absolutely nothing to do with the attack?
If one files a formal Freedom Of Information Act request with the CIA (or any other branch of this administration), as Marinka Peschmann of Canada Free Press did, this is exactly what I expected:
As CIA Information and Privacy Coordinator Michele Meeks wrote:
“With respect to Item 1, in accordance with section 3.6(a) of Executive Order 13526, the CIA can neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of records responsive to your request. The fact of the existence or nonexistence of requested records is currently and properly classified and is intelligence sources and methods information that is protected from disclosure by section 6 of the CIA Act of 1949, as amended, and section 102A(i)(1) of the National Security Act of 1947, as amended. Therefore, your request is denied pursuant to FOIA exemptions (b)(1) and (b)(3).”
This is the formal reply – replete in legalese – that EVERY such request will receive until such time as there’s a new occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and perhaps not even then!
Numerous witnesses who could provide valuable information and answers to many questions remain publicly unidentified and are obviously being sequestered by Obama so as to keep his secrets safe from public and congressional scrutiny. The coverup is glaring and the truth would undoubtedly end Barack Obama’s political career. President Richard M. Nixon was forced to resign for his coverup of Watergate; Benghazi is a hundred times worse.
As this post is being written, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – appearing bedraggled and spoiling for a political fight – is testifying before a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing seeking answers. They will get none and like it.
Mrs. Clinton – with both fists clenched and mouth agape – testifies today.
And don’t be surprised to hear Democrat Senators blame George W. Bush for the horror that took place at Benghazi. They’ve blamed him for everything else, so that’s a no-brainer.
