OBAMA'S BENGHAZI VERSES NIXON'S WATERGATE
Back to Benghazi verses Watergate. Prior to the 72 election Watergate was beginning to make news as information about a possible cover up was starting to take root. Benghazi actually took place shortly before the 2012 election while the FBI investigation of David Patreaus was underway during the same period. One major difference comes in the fact that in 1972 the media was not making a concentrated effort to help Nixon hide the truth about Watergate while 2012 had almost all of the media except Fox News not only helping Obama hide the truth but refusing to even cover the story.
Now the election is over and finally Benghazi is making the headlines it deserved before the election but ONLY because it has now included a sex scandal with CIA Director David Patreaus. Soon after the 1972 election Watergate began taking on a life of its on as the truth of the cover up began coming out and Congress started an investigation with a Select Committee whose sole responsibility was to find the truth about Watergate and the cover up that followed.
The 2012 election is over and several Congressional Committees are starting to investigate Benghazi and the situation with David Patreaus but each Committee has a separate goal with different questions, ideas etc, as to what they seek to find. Thus the necessity for a Select Committee like that which investigated Watergate becomes a must so that all the information about Benghazi can come to light without details that could lead to the absolute truth as to who knew what and when becomes lost in the confusion of many Committees as opposed to one.
As Watergate began to escalate the cover up began to unravel and in August 1974 just over a year and a half after the beginning of the second term of Richard Nixon, he resigned when he and his staff realized that Impeachment was coming as the House of Representatives was in the process of preparing the articles of Impeachment against Nixon. Nixon knew he would lose in the House but only the day before his resignation did he come to the conclusion that he would also lose the Senate trial that follows Impeachment and be removed from Office as the votes were not there to support his remaining President. So he resigned before the inevitable took place.
Is this the direction that Benghazi is beginning to take? Watergate pales in comparison to Benghazi and the complete neglect of duty, the ignoring of facts, lying to prevent the public from knowing it was a terrorist attack and of course four Americans died while the President watched it happen doing NOTHING to help and in the weeks before to prevent it from happening.
The cover up that followed Benghazi is also far worse than Watergate as it involves our Nations security and the protection of Americans. Watergate was an abuse of the Presidency and Presidential powers. Benghazi was a threat to our safety and our people. Once again no one died in Watergate. Nixon lied to cover up his illegal activities and protect his staff. Obama lied for two weeks about a video, ordered help to stand down and allowed Americans to die. Watergate is NOTHING compared to Benghazi.
A President resigned because of Watergate. A President is accountable for the murder of four Americans because of Benghazi. The difference is obvious and if the final results after a full investigation is anything less than Watergate than it not only becomes a travesty but it tells the Nation and the world that the lives of Americans mean nothing to this President and to our enemies is gives free reign to kill our personnel knowing that nothing will happen to prevent it or revenge it.
