The Axe Falls Probably Where It Should

And Hillary's neck is none the better for it:

Hillary gets tossed under the bus to provide cover for Biden, White House

Michelle Malkin:

"At last night’s debate, Joe Biden said 'we weren’t told' that the Benghazi consulate had requested additional security in the days leading up to the attack on the 9/11 anniversary. Today the White House is making sure everybody realizes that by 'we,' Biden was referring only to the White House and not the administration as a whole."

Believe it or not, I can accept the excuse that neither Biden nor Obama was aware of how dangerously exposed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was before the terrorist attack and before four Americans were murdered there.  A valid question that someone might ask, though, is why?  Why didn't they know?  One of the most hazardous areas on the planet and the White House never bothered to inquire as to the status of security and preparedness there?

Why?

Did all those national security briefings that Obama chose to not attend come back to bite him, and kill innocent U.S. citizens?

Someone please ask.

But beyond that, it's becoming clear where the buck is going to stop.  Those on site, those in the intelligence community, those responsible for embassy security, and now the White House are pointing the finger squarely at the State Department.  And Hillary.

When heads roll, it's increasingly clear whose goes first.

Hillary Must Go

It gets worse and worse:
Libya security cut while Vienna embassy gained Chevy Volts
By Congressman Mike Kelly, writing in the Washington Times

In a May 3, 2012, email, the State Department denied a request by a group of Special Forces assigned to protect the U.S. embassy in Libya to continue their use of a DC- 3 airplane for security operations throughout the country.

The subject line of the email, on which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens was copied, read: “Termination of Tripoli DC-3 Support.”

Four days later, on May 7, the State Department authorized the U.S. embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool’s new Chevrolet Volts. The purchase was a part of the State Department’s “Energy Efficiency Sweep of Europe” initiative, which included hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on green program expenditures at various U.S. Embassies.

In fact, at a May 10 gala held at the U.S. embassy in Vienna, the ambassador showcased his new Volts and other green investments as part of the U.S. government’s commitment to “climate change solutions.”

The event posting on the embassy website read: “Celebrating the Greening of the Embassy.”

While the embassy in Vienna was going green, the consulate in Benghazi was getting bombed, and little was done to stop it. [link]
Why does Hillary still have a job?

Why isn't she in prison for having committed negligent homicide?

It's No Wonder Men Died In Benghazi

You've heard Romney criticize the president by saying, "Hope is not a strategy"?

Well, apparently it was our strategy in Libya:

Libya Embassy Security Officer: Obama’s security strategy was ‘hope’

For the love of God.

Headline Of The Decade

Say what?

Wasserman Schultz: Wrong Statements About Libya Doesn't Mean They Were False

The frightening thing is, she's the brains of the outfit we know as the Democratic Party, USA.

And Then There's This White House Twit

My God:

[Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie] Cutter: Benghazi Is Only an Issue ‘Because of Romney and Ryan’

Is she that cold and calculating not to see how offensive her statement is?

With Spokespersons Like These ...

How proud the gay community must be of this dude, one of their own:

Dan Savage: ‘Tony Perkins [of the conservative Family Research Council] Sits On a Pile of Dead Gay Kids Every Day When He Goes To Work’

I'm not at all sure what that means.  But the malevolent invidiousness oozing from this champion of everything homosexual is shocking.

Dan Savage is entitled to his opinions.  And to protections against others taking his hate speech and wanting to go after him and kick his ass.

He's also entitled to America's scorn.

What a creep.

Thank You, Jesus

I have wondered for years why we have to put up with this infernal contraption:

The mouse faces extinction as computer interaction evolves

Kill it.  Put it out of my misery.
