After an amazingly long delay Congressional hearing on the circumstances and actions that allowed the massacred of the American Consulate staff in Libya have begun. Theoretically the goal of these hearings is to determine if the attack could have been prevented or successfully defended against if Obama’s people had acted differently. Presumably, there will also be some focus upon whether or not Obama and his staff deliberately lied to Congress and the American people about the actions they took before, during, and after the Islamists attacked the Consulate in Benghazi.
It’s safe to say that Obama and his cronies are less than pleased that this is happening. Obama absolutely loathes being questioned or held accountable by anyone for his behavior.
Silence! What Does It Matter?
The sad fact of the matter, however, is that this whole pageant bores me more than I can properly express. I just can’t force myself to care about it very much at all and I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone else, beyond the survivors and the families of the victims, care about it either.
Life’s Rough Justice
The victims: Stevens, Smith, Doherty, and Woods worked for Obama though, in Doherty’s, and Woods’ case this was quite indirectly as they were mercenaries the CIA contracted to provide physical security. Why would I care if Obama’s people died for any reason, much less while furthering his agenda or through his malfeasance?
Much like the shooting of Giffords or the Boston Marathon Bombing, Liberals, people employed by their own choice by Liberals, or people tacitly supporting Liberals by their presence died or were horribly injured. This does not raise any outrage in me at all.
These hearings are nothing but overly stylized political theater. They’re filled with much noise but contain no substance. Beyond a certain amount of political posturing in the run-up to the next Congressional elections, the Benghazi hearings serve no purpose at all so why would they interest me.
No matter what the House finds nothing will come of it because the Senate is in the hands of the Democrats and Sen. Reid and his ilk would turn a blind eye to any misdeed or crime committed by Obama and his people. That has already been proven by the Fast and Furious debacle.
Hellfire, People! This is just reality television and it’s boring because it’s meaningless.
