If It Looks Like a Duck....

There is an old adage, "If it looks like a duck, smells like a duck and walks like a duck, then it must be a duck." This same sentiment could easily be applied to the House of Representative's attempt to investigate the 9/11 Benghazi incident and the alleged Obama Administration's attempts at thwarting it.

Two of the House's most sought after witnesses in this case are General David Petraeus and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. We all should by now be familiar with how the Petraeus testimony is being side-tracked. He had a confessed-to affair with a journalist who was under investigation by the FBI. This supposed real affair began sometime back when she was entrenched with the General for an up close and personal biography she had planned on doing on him. The up close and personal got too up close and personal. She is also being investigated for allegedly trying to hack into the General's email account during his tenure as head of the CIA. Just as the General was due to testify into the CIA's knowledge and participation, or lack thereof, of his agency's involvement with the Benghazi mess that left our Ambassador and three others raped and dead in the streets of Libya, he publically steps down in humiliation over the sexual affair and his testimony before Congress is put on indefinite hold.

That leaves just one other really high-up and top level witness. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who just several weeks ago took full responsibility for the debacle due to her position as the head of the State Department. Or, as many were saying, Ms. Clinton not only was thrown under the bus by her President, but willingly walked out in front of it, which is very un-Clintonesque. Today, according to a report in the Washington Examiner the Secretary of State stated she will not be testifying before Congress as requested due to scheduling conflicts. “She has a commitment with the Secretary of Defense to the AUSMIN Ministerial,” says State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. “AUSMIN is the highest level forum for Australia and US consultation on foreign policy, defense and strategic issues.”

So then, what we have been told and are expected to accept unequivocally is that the AUSMIN Ministerial has a higher priority in the mindset of the Obama Administration than the investigation into how Ambassador Stevens and three other American's were slaughtered in Benghazi. I guess this conference was just too much for our Secretary of Defense to handle on his own without the aid and assistance of a Hillary Clinton.

If it looks like a coverup, smells like a coverup and walks like a coverup, then.....
