Yes, But Why Did They Die
In Benghazi?

I watched the entire
Benghazi Hearing live on C-Span 3ís
webpage yesterday.

I shudda stayed in bed, for
the only real piece of significant new news was that Hillary actually did make
a call to Tripoli that night: All the other new news revealed during those many
hours of testimony and commentary disguised as questioning involved peripheral
details about stuff already known to anyone who has paid any attention to the descriptions
of the actual event as those descriptions have come out over the last 8 months.

Specifically, those four
Americans did not die that night because of bad security-related decisions made
prior to September 11, 2012, or because U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice lied during
her "
full Ginsberg" on Sept. 16th, five full days after the event:
They died because a horde of mostly unidentified men led by unknown persons
intruded into the compound in Benghazi in unknown ways and for unknown reasons.

Full stop.

The only really important
issues about the event in Benghazi involve who the intruders were, how they
made their intrusion, and why the intrusion was made---everything else is

To this day no individual (pick up the discussion by Thomas Joscelyn, Long War Journal
senior editor, Bill Roggio, and John Batchelor at about the 9:00 minute mark)
or group has claimed responsibility for the event, and no individual or group
has been
publically identified by the Obama Administration (or anyone else, for that matter) as
being culpable for the event.The
Hearing shed no light on this matter because it did not address the matter.

Nor did it address how the
intruders gained access to the compound nor why, for heavenís sake, the
intruders proceeded directly to, and trashed, an unoccupied building upon first
gaining such access.

Surely, the intruders could
not have had that as their reason for the intrusion, yet that is what they did
before they leisurely made their way to the compoundís main building where they
made a half-hearted attempt to breach the secure areas of that building prior
to setting the building afire.

The hearing did not address
the intrudersí apparent bloodless firefight with the compoundís occupants
whilst Sean Smith and Ambassador Chris Stevens were choking to death, nor did
it address how Tyrone Woodsí rescue team bloodlessly entered and exited the
fully-occupied compound.

In his testimony,
Ambassador Stevensí deputy, Gregory Hicks, said that ďabout 60Ē intruders
exited the compound during or after the rescue teamís exit from the compound,
but no light was shed on why the intruders exited and then returned or what the
intruders did while in the compound on both intrusions other than run around
shooting ineffectually and burning and trashing things recklessly.

It is incomprehensible to
me that no one on the Committee or anywhere seemingly is interested in
discovering why the intruders intruded or what the intruders could have done within
the compound because of the unknown reason or reasons that they wanted to make
the intrusion.

I have written extensively
on these pages about the event, comprehensively summarized
here and here.

Those summaries, with their
multiple links, explain why I remain angered that the four who died that night
in Benghazi died, apparently, because a gun-running operation was being run out
of the compound and its associated annex, and because the compound was probably
attacked for some reason because that gun-running operation was being run.

And my anger is intensified
because that operation and the cover-up of that operation has been and is being
ignored by the media and most observers and because that operation and its
cover-up is obfuscated by the focus on what are, actually, external issues.

Even Ted Cruz misses the point!

As this sordid tale
continues to unfold, I suggest that concerned individuals keep in mind that
while the cover-up of the peripheral circumstances before, during, and after
the event (crime) is important and while that cover-up is what may lead to
unpleasant consequences
for Hillary and others, it is, in fact, the crime, the reasons for the crime, and the
cover-up of the reasons for the crime that are the
things that are
really important.

And those things are the
reason four Americans died on that long night eight months ago!
