The magician makes you look in one direction so you miss his sleight-of-hand. In this way, you are distracted, and then made the fool.
Barack Hussein Obama’s regime is thrilled that the media are feasting on the “thousands of e-mails” between General David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell, between Paula Broadwell and Jill Kelley, between Jill Kelley and General John Allen, and, finally, a shirtless photos sent by an FBI agent to who-knows-how-many women.
And you thought this behavior ceased in high school.
It’s all there: powerful men, powerful bimbettes, adultery, jealousy, sex, lies, and e-mails.
But: this is a magic trick, a political sleight-of-hand. Obama and his hacks held back the Petraeus scandal because had it been revealed before voters cast their ballots, the vote might have gone to Romney.
In any case, this is all just sound and fury. It’s the magician distracting us, the nation, from Benghazi.
We have been told that Petraeus cannot testify because he’s no longer director of the CIA.
We’re also told that Hillary Clinton can’t testify because she’s busy in Australia.
Okay, simple: subpoena Petraeus, Clinton, Rice, and every member of the Obama administration who is suddenly too busy, or conveniently out of a job, to testify.
They can either testify or take the Fifth.
True, you cannot subpoena Obama, but all the others have a moral and legal obligation to step forward and tell us what they knew, when they knew it, and what they did when American soil and American citizens came under attack and were massacred.
Further: We need to know what President Obama knew, when he knew it, and what he did as commander-in-chief when IslamoNazis attacked an American consulate.
We already know that Obama and members of his administration lied when they said that a mob protesting an obscure video no one ever saw got out of hand and attacked the Benghazi consulate.
Obama and his people knew, that very night, that the massacre was a well-coordinated attack by an Al Qaeda affiliate.
Congress needs to start knocking off all the president’s men, one by one, until the wall around Obama starts to crumble, as it inevitably will, and either Obama tells the truth to the American people or he is impeached for dereliction of duty.
It’s that simple, that complicated.
