I think there's a case to be made that no matter what Clinton did, Obama had fucked up so badly that it was going to look bad for him.
And from Protein Wisdom, here's Something To Chew On.
Apparently the two former Navy SEALs who were in Benghazi threw a monkey wrench into the gig.
According to her, Barack Obama, wanting an “October Surprise,” had secretly arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood for a kidnapping of our ambassador. Then sometime in October before the election Obama was to orchestrate some great military action to rescue Ambassador Stevens, causing all of America to cheer Obama’s strong foreign policy and bravery and making him look like a hero. After all, his supposed killing of Osama Bin Laden bounce had long since faded. Thus, sweeping him to victory in November. Imagine the headlines and talking points. The election would be a lock.
The Muslim Brotherhood has every reason to want Obama re-elected in November and have an American President sympathetic to their causes. Not to mention an administration filled with Muslim appeasers. Therefore, they agreed to aid in these theatrics.
Unfortunately for Ambassador Stevens and three others, the Brotherhood could not control the “hired thugs” that were to perform the kidnapping and things escalated and four American lives were lost.
And how sad is it, that even if this is completely false, the "leadership" of this country is so pathetic, twisted, and evil that this kind of talk is even plausible?
