Benghazi and TWA Flight 800 … Conspiracies and Cover-ups
I have a natural propensity to be skeptical of any “official version” offered by those within our government. They attempt to convince us what generally is the exact opposite of what actually happened. Even with hundreds of witnesses and evidence, no matter what event, if it will look bad on the government the American public is lied to. Those that question the official account are labeled as “conspiracy theorists”, kooks, wackos, etc. Most people cannot handle having any negative label placed on them and as long as the event didn’t directly affect them … no problem, they’ll just go along with the official story and forget about it. Then there are those who simply cannot accept the idea that there are people within the U.S. government who are responsible for the deaths of multitudes of Americans and lie to cover up their pernicious deeds. I sometimes question why most conservatives don’t believe anything told to the public by the government, yet when it comes to something like … oh … say the tragic events of 9/11/2001 … they readily accept the cockamamie, ridiculous explanation given to us by the government and supported by the major media which is completely overwhelmed with liars. The people in this category become exactly like a liberal defending say, Barack Hussein Obama. They do the exact same things … name-call, demean, mock, ridicule other conservatives who question the “official version”, no matter how ridiculous it may be. I’ve been on the receiving end of such ridicule. But I’m the kind of guy who, if I believe I’m right about something or things just don’t pass the “smell test” … ridicule away.
I read where one guy wrote that if there isn’t a “conspiracy” then conservatives will create one, citing the Benghazi Massacre. If this guy only realized how dumb his argument sounded. Team Obama is still trying to put together an “official account”, changing the story time and again. If folks don’t think there is a cover-up going on here … well these kind of people believe Obama is going to give “tax breaks” to the middle class. ‘Nuff said.
I saw the following piece at The American Thinker this morning and thought I’d share it will all three of my readers.
Benghazi ‘Narrative’ Reads Like TWA 800′s
By Jack Cashill
“The real story would have gone against the narrative,” Krauthammer agreed, adding, “I’m not saying that there was a deliberate conspiracy from day one, but as this story unfolded, they saw a way to make this non-political.”
Sixteen years ago, also in the home stretch of a difficult re-election campaign, Bill Clinton faced a problem very similar to Obama’s. An event took place that threatened the “peace and prosperity” theme of his campaign — specifically, the July 17, 1996, shoot-down of TWA Flight 800, with 230 people on board, just 10 miles off the coast of Long Island.
I use the word “shoot-down” with total confidence. Along with investigative reporter James Sanders, I produced a video on the subject called Silenced and wrote a book called First Strike. In a sense, Sanders was the Nakoula Basseley Nakoula of this event. To prevent Sanders from reporting on the story, the FBI arrested him and his wife Elizabeth and convicted both of conspiracy. As with Nakoula, the nation’s civil libertarians chose not to notice.
