Eric Boswell, Assistant Secretary For Diplomatic Security Resigns, Over The Benghazi Affair While Sec State Has “Flu” And “Concussion”!
WOW! What A FARCE!!
WOW! What A FARCE!!
There are basic truisms in life to which I stake my extensive psychiatric/political career:
Both Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton are liars, corrupt, cowardly, and will always sacrifice those around them for their respective careers.
If the death or murder of an inconvenient person is required, the Clintons will willingly oblige!!
No problem for them!
But here is another truism that you might be surprised with--- There is no way in Heaven or Hell that Eric Boswell, the Assistant Secretary for Security Affairs is in any way responsible for the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
How do I know this truism?
Again there are those in this Administration who forget that there are a few honest professionals who have worked with Eric or ‘Boswell’, as I used to call him.
I first met him when I was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Management for Lawrence Eagleburger during the Nixon Administration. In that office were two of the most talented Foreign Service Officers I have ever met:  Patrick F. Kennedy, the present Under Secretary of State for Management and then a FSO Administrative Officer. No one knew the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of the State Department and how it operated better than Pat Kennedy over the past forty years. He, like Ambassador Thomas Pickering, whom I also knew were on the Accountability Board examining the Benghazi Affair.
 The other person, was a young, multilingual, expert on management, diplomatic security and the Middle East and he was Eric Boswell.
Eric and Pat represented the best of the FSOs. In that tradition, I am not surprised that Eric took the ‘hit’ for Benghazi on behalf of the Sec State. There is no doubt in my mind that without the SecState Hillary Clinton’s approval, Eric would never initiate or negate a Sec State’s orders.
Eric, like the Ambassador and the three Americans who died, were all professionals in diplomacy and military affairs.
Eric had been posted several times in the middle east including as I recall the West Bank. He was fluent in French if not other languages so to suggest that he was negligent or incompetent is LITERALLY ABSURD.
What in fact his resignation means to me is that like the military officers who were quickly decommissioned –one army general, one rear admiral and ten or more navy officers-- because they tried to do their jobs as honorable military/intelligence officers and try to save their dying military /Intelligence colleagues, these individuals were summarily dismissed.
The cowardly civilian politicos in this administration try to maintain their legitimacy in their illegitimately contrived corrupt, cowardly world, that Obama has allowed himself to maintain and foster.
I am very much disappointed that both our military officials and FSO’s around the world don’t protest this incredible, despicable COVER-UP of civilian malignant neglect.
Even if Ambassador Stevens had insisted that he did not need consular protection and was considered the ‘expert’ on ‘Libya’, the truth is that the consular office was not under State Department jurisdiction but was used by the CIA, MI, SOF to interrogate ‘terrorists’ and ‘store military weapons’ for the Syrian Liberation Fighters.
The problem, my dear readers, is that we, American citizens, are being fed ‘horseshit’ on a continuous basis.
But the worst part is that our Executive, Military, Legislative and Intelligence leaders treat us, American Citizens, as if ‘we are dumb rummies’ [words used by a trucker about Carter’s lying].
I don’t know about you but I am getting exceedingly tired of being fed horseshit as a steady diet because some pandering, dysfunctional, corrupt politicians are worried about their respective careers and , of course, in the case of Hillary, her future Presidency.
Let me remind the leaders of our Republic---that no person- including POTUS is indispensable.
The Republic can only tolerate so much horseshit in the stall before the barn starts to burn.
It would be best for POTUS and others in the exalted positions of the White house and elsewhere to remember that Centurions are located all over the world.
In the Pacific, he is called CINCPAC.
In the Atlantic, he is called USACOM
In Tampa, he is SOCOM. Special Forces.
In Miami, he is SOUTHCOM.
In cyberspace, he is NSA, COMMANDER OF CYBERWAR.
In essence, POTUS is simply a disposable roman Caesar whom any Centurion Guard can eliminate at will.
For Eric Boswell to resign after General David Petraeus also resigned, both ostensibly in disgrace over their respective mismanagement of the Benghazi affair, let those who have forced or encouraged their respective resignations remember that We, the People, have gone to war for far less crimes than those presently committed by those who think they rule through deceits, conceits and betrayals.
As one recent British reporter asked me how did I change ‘regimes’, I answered, “it was easy. All I had to do, was to allow the regime to self-destruct”.
And right now this administration is doing everything it can to self-destruct.
The rest will be easy.
Remember Hillary, many of us still remember how Foster died.
The future is not yours, by any means, only the ghosts of the pasts hug your vitriolic soul and will determine your nefarious outcome.
And as for you, dear Eric Boswell, know that you sacrificed for both your country and your professional colleagues. You have always been and always will be a professional. That is a lot more than I can say about those of whom you spared prosecution.
Someday, I hope that our professionals in the military, foreign service and the intelligence community will stop putting their careers before "what is right and moral" and step up and just say “no, I won’t”. Our country will be destroyed if no ones shows any courage.
Defy authority when it is wrong! You serve beneath a sworn oath that compels you to do what is best for our country—not our politicians.
As for you, Ambassador Thomas Pickering and Pat Kennedy, you sacrificed a good man for a bad cause.
Secrecy, national security, and illegal covert actions are not synonymous with patriotism.
I expected more from both of you.
