Running out the clock on Benghazi | Pruden & Politics
[Clinton] says she can’t wait to reschedule an appearance in January before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. But by then, with a little luck, we’ll be talking about her successor, probably Sen. John Kerry, the famous Vietnam war hero, Francophile and keen windsurfer.
Delay and obfuscation have marked the Obama administration’s reaction to the Benghazi debacle since the slain ambassador, Chris Stevens, first begged for the help that never arrived. Four Americans, including the ambassador, paid for the timidity and ineptitude with their lives.
The president and his minions were desperate to run out the clock in October, struggling to stumble across the goal line. Now Hillary is desperate to stall, even it means an occasional bump on the head, until her successor takes over. The public may never get the promised explanation. Until then, we’re entitled to think the worst. We’ll probably be right.
