Smoke and Fire in Benghazi

You know the old saying “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”  The September 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was just such a story.  The Obama Administration’s reaction to it seemed odd (like they were hiding something), and anyone could have figured that this terrorist attack (less than two months before a Presidential election) may politically hurt Obama.

Well, Fox News may have a weak-kneed Establishment Republican spin at times, but they do balance their stories very well compared to the competition.  By not letting go of the Benghazi story, the administration attempted to chill Fox News reporters.  Listen to Greta Van Susteren’s take on what happened to her:

Recently, Fox News anchor Bret Baier interviewed a few of those on the ground that night nearly two years ago, called “13 Hours at Benghazi.”  The controversy surrounds a “stand down” order the five veterans say they received that night, though the administration denies it.  Had the soldiers intervened, the four Americans killed that night may not have died.

So, why all the obfuscation and obstruction from the administration early on in the scandal?  Can we get clarity about this “stand down” order?  Who else was there that night and why haven’t we heard from them yet?  Why the heck was the US still operating a consulate in a known dangerous area when every other Western nation, including the British, already left?  Until these questions are clearly answered, this issue will not go away.
