The Fix is in Part IV: Benghazi Cover-up: The Handshake … Update Kerry FBI FOIA request denied

7 January 2013 3 Comments

The best part of political theater, otherwise known as the ‘ah ha’ moment for truth seekers, can often be found when the show ends. In this epic tragedy, called the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Hearing: Benghazi: The Attack and the Lesson Learned, held on December 20, 2012, starring Senator John Kerry (D-Mass), as the Chairman, it happened right after Kerry’s dramatic closing statement concluded. The lights dimmed, the press started packing up their gear, the stars/senators, in crisp suits, with their shine-free faces courtesy of heavy pancake make-up, exited stage left. It was a quick moment but a telling one. Did you catch it?

Think back if you will. Perhaps you were under the illusion that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee serious and important hearing to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi where four Americans were murdered: Ambassador Christopher Stevens, former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith, a computer expert, was really serious and important because as the New York Times reported: the “Benghazi Hearing, State Dept. Conceded Errors,” and Hillary Clinton had already taken full responsibility. Case closed.

Or have you been paying attention? Are you disturbed by the lies coming from the Obama-Clinton administration beginning with President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice, philandering ex-CIA chief David Petraeus, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, when they falsely blamed a Youtube video for the deadly attack? Especially since we know the Obama-Clinton regime knew within two hours that the Islamist militia group Ansar al-Sharia took credit for it, and declined life-saving requests for help.

Did it make you sick and cringe in appalled horror when you heard Charles Woods’, the father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, during an interview with Glenn Beck on TheBlazeTV, recount how on the day his son’s body was brought home from Libya, how Hillary Clinton, after apologizing for his loss, told him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film [the Youtube video] is arrested and prosecuted.”

“When she said that, I could tell that she was not telling me the truth,” Woods said while he wondered why the Obama-Clinton administration did “not do something to protect” his son and the others.

Indeed, we all wonder why they didn’t send help, and what was Ambassador Stevens really doing in Benghazi in the first place—those of us who are paying attention—that is. We did not get those questions answered during the serious and important Senate committee’s Benghazi hearings, nor will we find out from President Obama, who nonchalantly, callously, chalked up the deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi on some “sloppiness” last week on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Instead what we got were two shows. The first one was the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Hearing dog and pony show for the American people, to falsely assure them that their elected leaders were doing their jobs. As Chairman Kerry stated in his authoritative, stage-craft, opening statement, “From the very beginning of the Benghazi events, every member of this Committee has shared with the President and Secretary Clinton our determination to get all the facts about what happened and why in Benghazi.”

But it is the second story-line that you should be following if you seek the truth, and it’s called the Benghazi cover-up because the fix is in, and as I’ve been reporting, it has been all along.

Did you see how after the Benghazi Senate Committee hearing, Hillary’s stand-in witness (because she was ill and couldn’t testify) Thomas R. Nides, the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, rush up to his soon- to-be-new-boss, at the State Department, Chairman Kerry, and shake his hand?

If you didn’t catch that, go back and look. That’s the show you want to watch. Although Nides and Kerry’s brief exchange was inaudible, it was visually affirmative. One can imagine it went something like this: “Good job,” or “Well done.”

I’d say so, because thanks to Hillary’s “independent” 39-page, declassified Benghazi Accountability Review Board report (ARB), a whitewash, that conveniently ignored important details such as why Sean Smith would send information out via a gaming website, and who ordered the military to stand down— (the same report the Senate Committee hearings were based upon), it looks like $2.2 billion (over ten-years) will be headed for the State Department very soon. A department Chairman Kerry expects to lead, as President Obama’s nominated Secretary of State—and no one will be held accountable for the deaths in Benghazi.

In a just America, Senator Kerry would have recused himself from any involvement in the Senate Foreign Relations hearing. It is a conflict to investigate one’s friends, or a department you hope to lead with a boss to impress. But alas, we are not living in a just America and have not for a long time now.

History is repeating itself. We saw the cover-up play out in Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer—where no one was held accountable there either. Now some of the same people with the same ‘the ends justify the means’ Saul Alinsky-ideology are using the same playbook to cover-up Benghazi. The only question is will Washington’s elite get away with it again?

For too long people have looked the other way and remained silent at the corruption and abuse of power occurring within their own government. Now the government is emboldened and the corruption has metastasized like a cancer.

Tomorrow, I will take you behind the smoke and mirrors of the Senate Foreign Relations Hearings and show you how.
