Hillary Clinton, Benghazi Truth And Trusting A Presidential Candidate

In life, things don’t always work out the way people want them to. Sometimes it is because they make decisions based on imperfect information. Sometimes they can’t blame imperfect information, because they had more, but chose to ignore it for some reason.

Benghazi seems to be one of those situations where a lot of definitive information was available, almost immediately, and there was a deliberate choice to ignore it – or to construe it as something else.

If we knew the real reason president Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and others who know the truth but aren’t saying did this, we wouldn’t be still asking these questions, we wouldn’t still be keeping this issue alive. The fact is that we don’t believe much of what we have been told about this issue, because none of it sounds believeable. That means we must keep digging, because they are hiding something, something important, something so bad that they are still working overtime to keep it from us.

So now we turn to the next Presidential election. There is nothing as important in the supposed campaigning for Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency than this one question submitted to her.

QUESTION: Any do-overs that you would do, relative to Secretary of State?

HILLARY CLINTON: Oh, sure. I mean, you know, you make these choices based on imperfect information. And you make them to, as we say, the best of your ability. But that doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns.

Some of those words are very true, but in the case of Benghazi, there could very well be a lie and a coverup interspersed with the truth.

Soon it will be your turn, as an American voter, to decide whether or not this is a proper answer, and whether you could trust a presidential candidate who utters those words, and in the end, possibly a president.

Would you feel secure? Would you feel safe?

When pondering those simple questions, think especially about four dead Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
