“After Benghazi revelations, heads will roll”, says the headline on an article by the BBC’s Mark Mardell on the latest info about the Benghazi cover-up.
It seems that even the Obama-supporting Beeb are realising they’ll have to start telling the truth and exercising some of that famed journalistic excellence on this matter instead of dutifully toeing the liberal-left line that the attack in Benghazi was carried out by a bunch of irate video critics.
Now that there is proof the State Department (headed up by Hillary Clinton) ‘wanted references to previous warnings deleted and this sentence removed: “We do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qa’ida participated in the attack”‘, the truth is starting to emerge.
Mardell is careful to cover his ample backside, however: “I remember listening to reports from the BBC and others at the time that did suggest the attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a rather puerile anti-Islamic video”, he says, without saying whether he thought this explanation was credible at the time or worthy of investigation.
Clinton is in the frame for this but her partner in crime is the President. The media on the both sides of the pond are keen to keep him out of this, but, as the man himself said, “the buck stops with me.” Except it’s unlikely it’ll be allowed to get that far.
