Gardiner: 'White House’s Benghazi Bungling is Proving a Disaster'

'...giving every impression that it is lacking in 
transparency, competence and accountability'

With the liberal, old-guard media still in bed with the White House and the recent election behind them, Team Obama surely thought Benghazigate would be promptly buried and forgotten. Alas, it's really not working out that way, is it...

The problem is that instead of forthcoming, good-faith disclosure -and perhaps some smidgen of accountability- the habitually-dishonest Obama Administration has been lying about Benghazi from the start: the cause, the circumstances on the ground, the perpetrators, what they knew and when they knew it,  who's to blame for dismissal of security concerns at our consulate, Obama's initial reaction to the attack, etc

Dear Leader has also run the bus right over Hillary, Petraeus, and two top commanders in a shameful attempt to deflect blame for his own total and complete FAIL at Benghazi on 9/11/12, while orchestrating a cover-up so massive it makes Watergate look like some college prank.

It all started with a cockamamie story re. Benghazi having something to do with a YouTube video and a protest that never happened. UN Ambassador Susan Rice was pushed out on the stage to promote this for four days straight, yet Gen. Petraeus recently made it clear the CIA knew it was AQ right away...
and that they never bought into the 'protest' bit.

Now that Obama himself, his Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and the State Dept have all distanced themselves from the 'video' fairy-tale as well -adding they 'don't know' who edited-out mention of Al Qaeda from the Benghazi talking-points- you have to wonder why Susan Rice was out hard-selling us a fictional, fatherless version of events nobody seems to have ever believed for a minute.

Subsequent spray-painting of the turd has proved largely ineffectual. and now that Obama is attempting elevate that same toady Susan Rice to Secretary of State, her previous willingness to stand up and lie for this vile administration has brought the wrath of GOP lawmakers- it's about damn time they got pissed about something.

An increasingly cornered Obama has slipped-into his standard default setting of 'only the Republicans care about this', but that's not fooling most thinking people anymore- including some on the other side of the pond:
Daily Telegraph (UK):

President Obama hasn’t even begun his second term yet, but his administration is already struggling with a huge credibility problem on the Benghazi front...

Jay Carney told the assembled White House press corps: "...the president ... is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not–no, it certainly doesn't have any bearing on what happened and who was responsible as that investigation was continuing on Benghazi." 

Carney’s response, as the president’s official spokesman is extraordinarily dismissive of the concerns of the American people as well as the United States Congress, and is representative of the administration’s shambolic handling of the Benghazi attack. 

Susan Rice is the US Ambassador to the United Nations and Obama’s likely choice to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. What she misleadingly told millions of Americans on national television regarding the circumstances surrounding the first assassination of a US Ambassador since 1979 is of great public interest, and the nation deserves clear answers about what exactly the president and his top advisers knew before, during and after the Benghazi atrocity, and how they responded...

Already there's political observers thinking that an arrogant, damn-the-torpedoes nomination of Susan Rice for Secretary of State could be Barack Obama's political undoing...
and this one's a Democrat.

Plenty of questions left to answer about Benghazi and the (ongoing) Obama Administration cover-up, too- oh yeah.
