You ever get tired of being played for a sucker? We are tired of it, whether done by the government or by the media that now mostly speaks for that government, but for the Internet. All that our major networks news lacks these days, is the name “Tass” or “Pravda” or with a slightly more delicate conceit: “Trud.”
Once the Benghazi process ground down to what passes in Congress for seriousness with the appointment of a select committee, we are suddenly diverted onto the ransoming of a U.S. soldier at the price of five senior Taliban (Plus any other items unmentioned). Presto! No more Benghazi! Instead, we are told variously that the ransomed captive Bergdahl is an honorable soldier of distinguished service (Susan Rice, who said of Benghazi: “It was the video!”) or that he was a deserter who converted to Islam and taught Taliban bomb-making (Per the Taliban).
We dunno and we have trouble these days believing Administration or media. Though at least the media has Internet competition to out its worst Truth incidents. You may decide for yourself whom to believe (if anyone) in cases such as these. We doubt them all …
Benghazi seems important to us. A high-ranking U.S. diplomat was apparently left to hang after doing as told providing arms to Syrian “rebels” who were Islamist terrorists. Why was he not provided the security he requested? We’ll never know; neither Democrats nor Republicans really want us to know, from what we can see. So the appearance of Sgt. Bergdahl is a Godsend, wiping the entire Benghazi scene from the present.
Lest we forget, our ambassador wasn just “killed.” He was stripped, cut, burned and his genitals were cut off. He was then dragged — literally — through the streets until ultimately, being thrown into a sewage ditch at roadside, still sort of alive. We have no report of details of the deaths of his three companions; we doubt they were pleasant.
The massive Administration cover-up proceeds today, obfuscating whatever happened and whomever was responsible. Sgt. Bergdahl is doing hs job. Of whom we say only this: We have no clue whether he is a hapless victim or a noble soldier. Nor do we expect ever to know his truth; too much politics obscures the view. Whatever the case, his life in the U.S. is now worthless; he is the new George Zimmerman, a loser however it comes out. The Obamas and Hillarys of this world aren’t concerned over their trails of broken butterflies …
And in the wings, the doughty minions of the media are no doubt, preparing the next crisis to distract us from this one. We have already grown bored with and forgotten, Bengazi … exactly as intended. Never mind the IRS etc. As the old vaudeville stage magicians used to say, “Now you see it … And now, you don’t!”
