What we think we know thus far
Paula Broadwell met Gen. David Petraeus in 2006 and wrote a dissertation about Petraeus’ leadership style and subsequently decided to write a book about it in 2008.
Broadwell was granted impressive access to Petraeus and his workings.
The thing is, Valerie Plame is still alive. She has written a book, enjoyed endless TV appearances and even had a movie made about her.
Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty are dead. No movies, no TV appearances, no books.
Tyrone Woods was calling for help. Someone ordered that help to “stand down.”
And the press could not care less why.
As Sandy sank its teeth into the Eastern seaboard, Barack Obama readied himself with a discussion of the music on his i-pod.
As Hurricane Sandy barreled toward the Mid-Atlantic this morning, and the White House scrambled to get the commander in chief back to Washington, President Obama could be heard on the radio airwaves in battleground Ohio talking about his iPod.
The 3 am call came and Obama didn’t answer.
Virtually nothing this administration has said about the attacks in Benghazi is true.
They lied about what happened, they lied about who was responsible, they lied about the cause.
President Obama is much better at dealing with disasters than preventing them. He now vows he will personally hunt the al-Qaeda homicidal maniacs and kill them or maybe give them a trial so that they will have American justice, but don’t bother him with meaningless details about security. Security is beneath Obama’s pay grade.
