While the so-called “investigation” into the deadly attack on a U.S. government compound in Benghazi has been widely blasted and ridiculed as a “whitewash” and a “cover up” for failing to even raise serious questions about the “Benghazigate” scandal, the report still exposes a series of the Obama administration’s lies. It also highlights the absolute disaster left in the wake of Obama’s unconstitutional war on Libya — chaos and carnage that have largely been ignored by the establishment press even after the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and other Americans.
As analysts widely suspected prior to its release, the official report about the attack on a U.S. government compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi ignored the most explosive “BenghaziGate” scandals: the Obama administration’s lawless arming of jihadists in Libya and Syria, as well as the blatant falsehoods parroted by White House officials for days after the killing of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Instead, the “investigation” focused on the obvious fact that security was inadequate, and predictably, demanded more taxpayer money for the Department of State.
