U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice came before the American people and served up the untrue story that the attacks on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans was the result of some Youtube video. This false story seems to have helped torpedo her chances of being the next Secretary of State as today Rice pulled her name out of the running for the position. But, does her pulling her name from consideration somehow “end” the Benghazi scandal? Buzzfeed thinks it does.
According to Buzzfeed’s Zeke Miller, Rice pulling herself out of contention for the nomination as Obama’s next Secretary of State “effectively caps a three-month administration scandal over the Benghazi terrorist attack.”
Miller goes on to say that because the Republicans found “the scalp they’ve been seeking,” why, the whole thing is basically over.
Over? So, all the lies, the deaths, the lack of support for our embassy and support personnel that were killed is now all erased simply because Rice quit her hunt for Sec. State and the GOP “got a scalp”?
Miller does note that Republicans are vowing to continue the investigation into the major failures at Benghazi, but he feels that it will now continue “without the bloodthirst.”
Of course, Miller is viewing the Benghazi massacre that Americans suffered as merely some political witch-hunt as all Democrats do. This is little else but an effort to give Obama a pass on his disastrous foreign policy failure by dismissing the whole Benghazi affair as nothing but mere politics.
