THE TRUTH MAKES A DIFFERENCE

"Truth will ultimately prevail when there is pains to bring it to light." George Washington
Earlier today three men of principle, of morals, of values, of conscience, of courage, of sense of duty and loyalty to comrades and country, spoke about the murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on 11 September 2012.
Before Congress and under oath, Mark Thompson, Eric Nordstrom, and Greg Hicks, who know what happened, told the truth. And their truth is nothing like the "truth" told, under oath before Congress, by Hillary Clinton - the Secretary of State in office and on duty at the time of the murders.
Her 3:00am phone call (the one she chided Barack Obama about during the 2008 campaign) came - she failed. Miserably so is known. Purposely so is now the question.
Nor is the truth told today by those three patriots anything like the "truth" told by President Barack Obama, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, and others knowingly and deliberately perpetuating a false party line for personal and political gain.
The talking points, approved by the White House, were an absolute lie. Those words could not have been further from reality. And reality was known from the beginning.
Today's testimony makes the Accountability Review Board Report into the Benghazi fiasco, overseen by Ambassador Thomas Pickering and Admiral Mike Mullen (former Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff), look sloppier (did not interview key personnel) than an ensign's (or second lieutenant's) first preliminary inquiry into missing gear. In fact, the junior officer's work would be better. Are they part of the cover-up? Such is the logical conclusion for surely an ambassador, a four-star admiral, and their minions can do better.
The difference it makes, Mzz Clinton, is that the most transparent administration ever, suspected of being liars, is now being proved damn liars. A run for president in 2016? Absurd.
This is not complicated.
Who has motive to lie?
And, by the way, the question that remains unanswered, "Where, exactly, was President Obama during the attack and what, exactly, was he doing?"
The families and friends of those murdered abroad while on duty in service to country, all Americans for that matter, deserve the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. So help us, God.
Finally, the "truth" tellers are criminals, are perjurers - charge, try, and, if found guilty, punish.
Yesterday, South Carolina put former Governor Mark Sanford (the adulterer who, while in office, secretly went to Argentina to see his mistress) back in office - elected to 1st Congressional District. With that sort of idiotic thinking alive, Mzz Clinton is not dead yet.
