It's the Cover Up, Stupid
We had damn well better get some quesitons at tonight's debate from Bob Schieffer, CBS News's oldest dinosaur of the lamestream media, about the Obama administration's Benghazi cover up. There seem to be two lines of thought about this: 1) Schieffer will ask some tough questions because this his last-hurrah, and he wants to protect his own legacy; and 2) Schieffer will protect Obama and his own leftist bias because this is his last-hurrah. I vote for number 2, considering the article (link below) written by William Bigelow about Schieffer's 2008 debate bias in favor of O.
Here are some interesting thoughts about Benghazi (and other issues) that we can keep in mind for tonight's debate:
In the WSJ, James Rosen: "The Three Benghazi Timelines We Need Answers About."
At PJ Media, Roger L. Simon: "Should Barack Obama Resign Tonight?"
At Hot Air, Ed Morrissey: "CBS News: Why didn't we send the military to rescue Benghazi personnel?"
This is from the NYT, which for the past four years has covered for Obie and his administration all day long, by David E Sanger: "Monday's Debate Puts Focus on Foreign Policy Clashes"
This is from Breitbart Big Peace, by Joel B. Pollak: "Fact Check: The Obama Doctrine, From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe."
From Breitbart Big Journalism by Joel B. Pollak: "New York Times Caught Editing Iran Story After White House Denials."
From the WSJ, Dorothy Rabinowitz: "The Unreality of the Past Four Years."
From Breitbart Big Journalism, by William Bigelow: "Bob Schieffer's 2008 Pro-Obama Debate Record."
Here's another one, suggested by a reader: From the New York Post, by Amir Taheri: "Anatomy of a failed foreign policy."
And another one: From the Washington Examiner, an editorial: "Killing bin Laden is not a foreign policy."
