Hillary Clinton really, really sick. How you?
The four officials supposedly out of jobs because of their blunders in the run-up to the deadly Benghazi terror attack remain on the State Department payroll — and will all be back to work soon, The Post has learned.
The highest-ranking official caught up in the scandal, Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, has not “resigned” from government service, as officials said last week. He is just switching desks. And the other three are simply on administrative leave and are expected back.
State Department leaders “didn’t come clean about Benghazi and now they’re not coming clean about these staff changes,” a source close to the situation told The Post., adding, the “public would be outraged over this.”
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) told The Post this is “yet another ruse about the tragedy of Benghazi.”
“State Department officials proclaimed . . . that heads would roll . . . Now we see that the discipline is a lie and all that has happened is the shuffling of the deck chairs.”
Hey, maybe Chris Stevens never died! Maybe no harm, no foul.
Oh man, sorry… he died.
The press couldn’t get enough of Abu Ghraib, some of which was horrific, some of which was college hazing (which still makes it wrong). But they want nothing to do with Benghazi—before, during, or after the night of 9/11/12. If this had happened during Bush’s term, the White House would have been treated like the Libyan consulate, complete with military assault led by Andrea Mitchell and Wolf Blitzer.
Hillary Clinton can duck out of Congressional hearings, can ruin Susan Rice’s career, can play “will I, won’t I” with whether she’ll ever talk about what she knew—or Obama!—and when, and she skates.
What have we done by electing and reelecting these people? Everything the left fabricated about George Bush is actually happening under Barack Obama. Under a Republican administration, they are (or would have been had they happened) the most heinous crimes. Under Obama, it’s as if they never happened at all.
