Have you seen the latest Republican “strategist” saying something so idiotic you have to check to see if even he believes the idiocy flowing from his own mouth?
In case you missed it, Republican “strategist” Jack Burkman, in an interview on Current TV, actually said that the Benghazi attacks were WORSE than 9/11 because of the “level of things ignored”.
Excuse me Jack? YOU! …Dunce cap… corner of the room IMMEDIATELY!
Let’s not forget that President W. Bush ignored PDB’s about an impending attack by Al Qaeda including one entitled: “Bin Laden determined to strike in America” in which it was revealed that Al Qaeda planned on hijacking planes and using them as missiles!
A CIA agent flew to Bush’s Crawford ranch on August 6th 2001 to deliver the PDB, at which time Bush read it and said: “Ok you delivered it to me, your ass is covered” I’m certain that after that he went back to pretending to be a cowboy on the ranch “clearing brush” and we all know what happened 36 days later.
Bush & his cohorts also ignored the Phoenix memo sent on July 10, 2001 sent by FBI special agent Kenneth Williams recommending the assembling of a list of worldwide civilian aviation schools. Part of the memo read:
“Advise the Bureau and New York of the possibility of a coordinated effort by Osama Bin Laden to send students to the United States to attend civil aviation universities and colleges. Phoenix has observed an inordinate number of individuals of investigative interest who are attending or who have attended civil aviation universities and colleges in the State of Arizona”
It was Bill Gertz – editor, reporter and columnist from the Washington Times – a conservative newspaper who said that the ignoring of the Phoenix memo was one of many intelligence failures that lead up to the 9/11 attacks. A CONSEVATIVE columnist said it! In the event you hadn’t already gotten that point.
Over 3,000 lives lost, a major US, heck, a major WORLD city shut down completely, the Capital of our country shut down, the Pentagon almost destroyed and YET this imbecile wants to say that what happened in Benghazi is WORSE than what happened on 9/11?
I’m in no way suggesting that what happened in Benghazi is much ado about nothing because whenever a Foreign Service worker is killed while doing their duty on behalf of our government it’s something we should pay attention to.
This attack on Benghazi was very unfortunate, there were no assets close by to assist, this is just the GOP trying to find some sort of scandal, ANY scandal they can to besmirch this president and his reputation.
It is fools like Jack Burkman who get the loud mouth, low information, Fox news, Rush Limbaugh & Glenn beck mouth breathers to buy into this garbage and spread it as if they were Paul Revere warning about the British coming!
It’s my sincere hope that even the most partisan of Republicans see and hear this nonsense from Burkman and say : “That’s not accurate” but sadly I’m certain that most will fall in line as they always do, buy it all hook, line and sinker and once they hear it enough times it will actually become fact to them.
They always say: “Tell a lie enough times and you begin to believe it yourself”.
Judging by Burkman & Congressman Issa’s behavior in pushing this issue, I think they’re living proof of that statement.
