It’s from Talking Points Memo, but what the heck: the Obama administration is apparently doing its best to forget that the Benghazi attack ever happened.
Staffers at State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. held their own private ceremony Wednesday to commemorate the first anniversary of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya after finding out the agency would not be organizing a formal, official memorial service.
The Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attack left four people dead, including the American Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and Sean Smith, an information management officer in the department’s foreign service.
A State Department staffer who worked with Stevens in Libya and asked not to be named told TPM there were about 20 to 25 staffers at the memorial. The informal gathering was put together after staffers inquired and learned the department would not be holding an official event to mark the anniversary.
So, I gotta ask State Department workers:
Which side are you on, boys (and girls)? Because I gotta say: the current administration clearly doesn’t give a [expletive deleted] whether you and your friends live, or die. And if it turns out to be ‘die,’ they won’t even bother to remember your names. But look on the bright side! At least the four designated scapegoats from State get to have their jobs back. Well, maybe not their original jobs back. But at least taking the fall for Hillary Clinton and her cronies won’t jeopardize anybody’s pensions. And that’s the important thing, right?
PS: The people that murdered our Ambassador and three other Americans still walk free, a year after the attack. Such things were not permitted, in the past days of the Republic.
