A time for indictment
In May 2013, the left-leaning Washington Post published the details of the Benghazi cover up by Hillary Clinton and the White House. Information provided by US Diplomat Gregory Hicks, who on that night was dealing with the attack 600 miles away in Tripoli, indicated that the several military options available were purposely told to stand down by Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the Pentagon. The Democratic leadership tried to say that a Republican-led inquiry was politically motivated. The White House touted the credentials of the men charged with conducting the State Department Investigation of Benghazi–as if the government investigating itself was remotely credible. As we know, it wasn’t.
Then White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was ducking and dodging reporters questions by saying, “There was an accountability review board led by two men of unimpeachable expertise and credibility who oversaw a process that was rigorous and unsparing, that was highly critical in some areas and that produced a series of recommendations that have all been acted on by the State Department as the president insisted be the case.” But Hicks criticized the review saying that it let people “off the hook.” Aside from the current email controversy, Clinton and others appeared to be lying about Benghazi. There were several different stories being told and each time Clinton was on the wrong side of documentation.
It was only after State Department officials leaked to the public that the White House story was a fabrication that Clinton admitted “that information has changed…that’s not surprising. That always happens.” The “president” was out of contact with Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, according to Panetta’s testimony, from an hour, 18 minutes after the attack began at 5:30 pm until 5:15 the next morning. Yet Carney said the president was “regularly updated.” When pressed for more information at a Congressional hearing, Clinton responded: “What difference at this point does it make?” A Congressional report from five House committees said that Clinton and the White House “perpetuated a deliberately misleading and incomplete narrative…” In other words, they lied.
In his wisdom Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 3, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to reap that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance…A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” It is time for We the People to stand up and as Ephesians 6:20 says to make known the mystery of the gospel and “speak boldly as I ought to speak.” There is a time for indictment and a time to put away unrighteousness. Perhaps that time is now.
