“Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire!” The Obama/State Department Lies!
I had told you eight months ago that Benghazi was a conundrum of lies purposefully perpetrated by the Obama administration.
I did not have to read ‘tea leaves’ or even ‘receive inside information’ to know that Obama; the White House Staff [National Security Council]; SecState Hillary Clinton [Liar ‘Par Excellent’]; General Martin Dempsey [remember he was one of the first to claim that there was ‘a video’]; John Brennan [now DCI]; Susan Rice; etc. all lied!
Thanks goes primarily to Fox News and Roger Ailes, Rupert Murdoch, and his NY Post that did not give up on this investigation. The truth as to who lied to whom will come out.
The real heroes are: Libyan Deputy Chief of Mission [DCM] Gregory Hicks; Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary Of State for Counter Terrorism, Mark Thompson; and former Regional Security Officer Eric Nordstrom.
Truth is not RELATIVE. IT is ABSOLUTE.
You either did or did not do what you were supposed to do based on your professional obligations, honor, and integrity.
The rest is SIMPLY RATIONALIZATION.
I knew then as I know now that the Investigative Board overseeing the Benghazi Affair was a COMPLETE WHITE WASH and a COMPLETE LIE!!
No surprise there.
From the beginning, I could dismiss the veracity and integrity of Admiral Mike Mullen. I have written about his past incompetence as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Of Staff and his incredible NEED and PROCLIVITY FOR SELF –AGGRANDIZEMENT AND PREVARICATION. I knew about his father who was the publicist for my Literary and Movie Agency, the former William Morris Agency. Bull S**ting is in the DNA of this tribe.
I have known and worked with Pickering for over twenty years in everything from peace talks between USG –Israel, issues dealing with the UN and many other areas of concern.
I found him to be forthright and exceedingly competent. He was always professional, never one to attract attention to himself or the sensitive issues at hand.
Unfortunately, on this one particular occasion, perhaps the most important one in his long distinguished career, Pickering TARNISHED HIS REPUTATION ---TRYING TO PROTECT a NEFARIOUS HILLARY CLINTON and OBAMA, both of whom would have thought nothing of SACRIFICING PICKERING FOR THEIR OWN PARTICULAR POLITICAL GAINS …. .which is what happened.
I asked myself, how did a good, serious professional like Pickering go astray?
Was it political ambition?
I think not. He was already out of the State Department.
Was he promised to become Secretary of State by the Lucretia Borgia, Hillary Clinton, if she were to become President of the United States?
Perhaps! It is said that every man has his or her own price…..or was he fearful?
Would Pickering throw away a thirty year distinguished career on the promises of a WELL DOCUMENTED PATHOLOGICAL LIAR LIKE HILLARY CLINTON?
I don’t think so. Pickering was a sophisticated reader of people.
Not necessarily a psychologist but he knew people, their foibles and their hidden agendas. He had been Ambassador to so many different cultures and positions that he knew how ‘to read the situation’.
In my humble opinion, I think that Pickering lied, not to protect himself nor even the SecState, but to protect the integrity of the State Department.
What do I mean?
The problem in Benghazi was not really a State Department one.
It was a situation where the State Department happened to be the COLLATERAL DAMAGE.
The primary problem was the fact that John Brennan had orchestrated a ‘palace coup’ with the necessary compliance of Obama; the White House Staff; Hillary Clinton; Robert Mueller, and Dempsey against General David Petraeus, the then Director of the CIA.
The Palace Coup’s primary goal was to get rid of General Petraeus from the CIA and allow Brennan and his cohorts to resume civilian control over the renegade CIA—our infamous Legacy of Ashes.
However, the Palace Coup and its subsequent cover-up did not work on many levels.
1) no one expected Ambassador Christopher Stevens, an ‘excellent Arabist’ to be caught in a cross-fire of covert operatives working illegally, torturing and transporting illegal weapons to Syria. Benghazi was the kaleidoscopic scene of gunfire where well-known ‘terrorists’ were fighting a proxy ‘covert war’ against another USG proxy, unbeknownst to Petraeus.
2) The Regional Security Officers’s Chief, Eric Boswell, also a ‘good company man’ whom I had known for twenty years, was not derelict in his duty in not providing more RSO’s. He knew (as well as many others) that there was enough ‘protection’ on the ground. He knew all too well that the protection on the ground was not necessarily RSOs but ‘mercenary’ covert ex-military operatives using the so-called embassy as a torture chamber and transmission center for heavy military equipment to Syria. Bottom line: lots of people knew what was really going on in Benghazi!
3) Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy knew the most of what was going on both on the ground in Libya as well as the ‘cover up;’ because Pat, whom I liked and knew for over twenty years, is a very EFFECTIVE MANAGER and ADMINISTRATOR. He knows where every PENNY and COVERT OPERATION IS LOCATED. He knows under which rock the CIA hides the payola for the mercenaries. He pays the rent on the bogus embassy used as weapons depot/torture chamber. He knows the rank, names and serial numbers of the individuals who would have been involved overtly or covertly in the Benghazi Affair.
Pat Kennedy is the ‘MOTHER LODE” OF STATE DEPARTMENT INNER WORKINGS!! IRRESPECTIVE OF WHO MIGHT BE SECRETARY OF STATE!!!
If the investigators are serious about getting to the truth of Benghazi, all they have to do is to interview PAT KENNEDY and EXAMINE HIS ACCOUNTING LEDGERS and EMAILS.
Once you follow the money trial from Pat Kennedy’s office, the truth of the matter will come out ASAP.
Get the emails! Follow the money and it will probably lead to Brennan.
The rest is simply commentary.
As of Pickering, Kennedy and Boswell—these were honorable men who committed DISHONORABLE DEEDS.
Too bad! History is littered with such humans.
Their punishment is what Jean Paul Sartre wrote about in his novel Huis Clos –“NO EXIT”—
“Hell is the Life that you have constructed for yourself with all the lies and self-delusions.”
Grant me a little bit of philosophical rambling.
In the world of existential phenomenology, the moment of TRUTH is that very moment that one has to make a DECISION THAT DETERMINES THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT HAD TRANSPIRED BEFORE.
Pickering, Kennedy and Boswell had failed as Foreign Service Officers and as Americans.
They chose to protect the lie over the truth. They indicted themselves and the rest of the FSOs.
I take comfort and pride in the fact that the three Whistle Blowers have become the TRUE HEROS OF BENGHAZI!!!
Believe me, I know it takes a lot of guts and perseverance to go up against a LYING KILLING MACHINE!!
Hail to these Conquering Heroes and to Those Who Died Valiantly Trying to Save their Colleagues and Friends!!!
Shame and disgrace piles up around the lying Obama and his sycophants.
Truth and the American Way will be the Final Retribution!!
Once again we witness the unrelenting power struggle between the military and the DCI directors. The famous former Special Forces General “Jerry” Boykin (whom I knew and admired) said recently regarding Benghazi, “there is no question we could have sent in special forces in time to save our men’s lives.”
Boykin’s remarks were countered by former SecDef, ex DCI, Robert Gates (btw never served in military) public criticism of our present military capacity- saying that General Boykin’s assessment was a “cartoonish impression of military capabilities.”
Hmmm, big problem is this chest puffing is costing us citizens lots of our hard to earn pay! C’mon! Let’s build some bridges, fix some schools, go back into space….enough of this crap.
