Shrinkage: Our Embarrassingly Tiny Attention Span

Have you heard anything lately about the September 11 debacle in Benghazi?  Me either.

In the weeks before the election, Obama and Clinton told us repeatedly that they would have to complete an investigation before they could explain why they lied repeatedly about the attack and the American deaths. benghazi_attack_us_politics_2012_09_12

Did they ever complete the investigation?  Is there an investigation?  Would they reveal what was learned if there actually was an investigation?

Maybe citizens think that Obama won, so there’s no point investigating any further, or even discussing what has been uncovered.  Congressmen Issa and Chaffetz appeared to be very interested in getting to the bottom of the disaster.  What happened?

Certainly the mainstream media will not besmirch their anointed ones.   In the absence of any news, we Americans will either assume the matter has been satisfactorily resolved, or will forget it ever happened, our tiny attention spans distracted by the latest “crisis dujour”.   The story would be buried forever but for reporting by bulldog conservative blogs such as

Here is a great synopsis and reminder of the severity and importance of the Benghazi story, and the cold-blooded complicity of our administration:

Let’s not let this important story, or the memory of Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods, fall victim to attention span shrinkage.

Tell The Truth!

“I don’t trust you any more,” cried the mother of a slain State Dept. employee Sean Smith.  She was promised by President Obama, Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Clinton, and Defense Secretary Panetta that they would tell her what had happened to her son.

They didn’t.  They won’t.

“I cried on Obama’s shoulder,” she said.  “Then he kind of just looked off into the distance.  That was worthless to me.”

While congressional hearings continue in an attempt to find out what really happened in Benghazi, our ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, did not feel compelled to extend any condolences to the families of those killed.  Oh, but she did post several tweets about her concerns for the lesbian and gay community.

Rice spent an entire Sunday news cycle repeating the Administration’s politically motivated claim that the Benghazi attack was caused by an obscure film trailer released in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, the Democrat political attack plan du jour is to attempt to brand Mitt Romney as a liar because he didn’t say the things his attackers said that he said.

There’s a time for politics and a time to just tell the truth.  Too bad it’s never the same time.

The whole world is shaking now. Can’t you feel it?
A new dawn is breaking now. Can’t you see it?
Tell the truth. Who’s been fooling who?
