President Obama dismissed Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham’s attacks on UN Ambassador Susan Rice regarding her statements about the September 11 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. President Obama said: “If Senator McCain and Senator Graham want to go after someone, they should go after me.” In other words, I’m ready for whatever you think you can throw my way! Bring it on my brothers!

President Obama praised Susan Rice’s exemplary service to her country in her role as ambassador. His response was to their threats of a Watergate-style hearing if she was nominated to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

He also said:  “I don’t think there’s any debate in this country that when you have our Americans killed that’s a problem. They won’t get any debate from me on that. But when they go after the U.N. ambassador, apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me.”

John McCain is accusing the Obama administration of having zero credibility in this tragedy, but was quiet as a little mouse when there was actionable intelligence that the Bush Administration dropped the ball before the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. Lindsey Graham, who doesn’t deserve to be called Senator, went on CNN after President Obama’s press conference saying, “Mr. President, don’t think for one minute I don’t hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi.  I think you failed as Commander in Chief before, during, and after the attack. ” That’s like George W. Bush had such a stellar record before, during and after 9/11.

    Do you notice that if YOU are given the choice to probe the questions:

    1) Was the US/NATO “Humanitarian Mission” executed upon Libya justified or was it an “International Coup”?

    2) When Belgian King Leopold II said HE was doing a “Humanitarian Mission” upon The Congo 100 years ago if HIS PLAN was any different than what the American government is plotting on today?

    3) Why were there 3 CIA OPERATIVES inside of Libya when the Benghazi attack happened? Were they “Aid Givers”?

    4) Despite the fact that the press echoed the Obama Administration’s claim that the US was allowing it NATO coalition partners to lead in the “Humanitarian Mission” – US Flagged aircraft flying under the guise of NATO dropped more ordinances on Libya than all others combined


    Guess which of these 5 points you will report on?

    I struggle some times to see if YOU see a distinction between your interests in protecting the “Obama Administration” against the RIGHT WING verses your ability to KEEP YOUR EYE ON WHAT THE US GOVERNMENT IS DOING as you are fighting your domestic battle?
