The attack on Benghazi that resulted in the murders of four Americans last September has always been considered irrelevant by this administration since the day it happened. The facts surrounding the event were rightly seen by Mr. Obama as a threat to the upcoming elections, and the only energy expended by him was directed at making the whole thing go away.
After a year of obfuscation, misdirection, and outright lies designed to call our attention away from the President's failure to respond to the insult, we are now told that the entire matter is irrelevant.
Mr. Kerry was present in Vietnam for a period of 4 months in 1968-69, during which period he received a Silver Star, Bronze Star, and 3 Purple Hearts, (which he later threw over the fence at the US Capitol). G. K. Chesterton must have been thinking of Mr. Kerry when he said "...for aristocrats, honor is a luxury...". I personally know people who earned those same medals in Vietnam, and they have spent decades living with the medical problems that came with them. And nobody I know has ever heard of anyone who accomplished such things in four months. In April, 1971, he famously declared that virtually the entire US Military was guilty of war crimes on a level "reminiscent of Ghengis Khan". It was all a damned lie and nobody knows it better than him.
As with almost everything Mr. Obama does, issues are raised and priorities established that serve only to distract us from other matters. His real intentions regarding Syria are so hard to fathom because, apart from it's obfuscation value, he may not in fact care about it one way or the other. Far from "leading", he seems to find it necessary to spend his energy "misleading".
John Kerry is a perfect foil for this. When he isn't busy making up his own lies, he's hard at work reinforcing the lies of other people.
