Another prominent liberal holds Obama administration responsible for Benghazi

Mike L.

"This is one liberal Democrat who said the intervention was wrong," Kucinich began, blasting the Obama administration for helping to take out Qaddafi. "And what the attack on the consulate brings up, Chris, is the failure of the Benghazi policy from the beginning. And that's why they had to call it a street demonstration instead of an attack because on the eve of an election that brought in a whole new narrative about foreign policy, about dealing with terrorism, and about the consequences that led to four deaths of people who served the United States."

Fox host Chris Wallace asked, "So do you think those talking points were politically scrubbed?"

"Of course they were," said Kucinich. "Come on, are you kidding? This is one of those things that you have to realize were in the circumference of an election, and when you get on the eve of an election, everything becomes political. Unfortunately, Americans died and people who believe in America who put their lives on the line, they weren't provided with protection. they weren't provided with a response. They and their families had a right to make sure they were defended. Look, we went into Benghazi under the assumption that somehow there was going to be a massacre in Benghazi. So we went there to protect the Libyan people. We couldn't go in to protect our own Americans who were serving there? I'm offended by this, and there has to be real answers to the questions being raised."
Nixon was driven from office for the Watergate break-in.

Bill Clinton was impeached for perjuring himself over an extra-marital affair.

But maybe I am cynical, because I do not believe for one moment that Barack Obama will pay any price for abandoning Ambassador Stevens and his people in Benghazi or for the cover-up afterward.

Nobody died in Watergate and, obviously, nobody died in Clinton's torrid little affair, yet Obama will skate because he has the press in his back pocket and because American "progressives" are more beholden to ideology and political loyalties than they are to the truth.

I have called for a fair, impartial, and independent investigation into the matter and even that is too much for many on the left.

They simply do not care.
