It’s even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could “negotiate” the release of a “hostage” and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election!
The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi… was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange… that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…”
It looks like John Kerry will soon be our next Secretary of State. The initial nominee, Susan Rice, went down as a sacrificial lamb so that the Republicans can say that they got their pound of flesh and President Obama can get the person he probably wanted in the first place without the same intense scrutiny. The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that this was the same thing that President G.W. Bush did with his nomination of Harriet Meyers to the Supreme Court, but that’s neither here nor there. I’m not even going to focus on how many ways Kerry’s past statements on foreign policy make him incredibly unqualified for this position. While I don’t like the idea of Kerry representing the United States in this role, just like potentially appointing Anna Wintour as our ambassador to the U. K. I think that Kerry is a perfect representative for the Obama administration and how it sees the United States’ role in the world. There is one small problem – John Kerry belongs in jail.
