Downfall VII: Benghazi? UPDATED

So far, with the help of the snooze media, Obama has not been hurt much politically by Benghazi.  But that might be about to change.

Last night, Fox News made Benghazi more difficult to ignore.  It spent about the first 12 minutes of its 6pm broadcast on the subject, focusing on allegations that the Obama regime is threatening whistleblowers and on an interview with a Special Ops man who insisted we could have sent in help in time.

The allegations that whistleblowers have been threatened may be the more problematic politically for Obama.  Benghazi, like Watergate, took a long while to become a story.  But in the end, it was the cover-up that brought down Nixon.

Later in the broadcast, Charles Krauthammer went yard on Benghazi and the Obama-media cover-up with more emotion than I can recall seeing from the man.  He gave an excellent summary of why Benghazi should be a big deal.  I normally do not insist that my readers listen to a video, but I will now.

And there is more to come that may make it difficult for Obama and the sycophant noos media to keep sweeping this under the rug.

“There are more Benghazi hearings coming; I think they’re going to be explosive,” Mr. Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican who is a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told Fox’s Uma Pemmaraju.

Mr. Gowdy wasn’t able to give out too many details, but he hinted that the public for the first time might hear from witnesses to the terror attack that left four Americans dead. …

Mr. Gowdy added that in a trial, “direct evidence, direct testimony by eyewitnesses is always the most compelling.”

“Trust me when I tell you you will want to follow the hearings that are coming up,” he reiterated.


Downfall is an ongoing series anticipating and tracking what I expect will be the self-destruction of Obama.

UPDATE: The first question in this morning’s press conference mentions Benghazi whistleblowers.  Progress! 

Obama replied he was “not familiar” with testifiers being blocked.  *SNORT*

Wow, second question mentioned Benghazi, too.  Like I said, progress!
