U-T San Diego Editorial Board Blasts Obama And Mainstream News For Benghazi Coverup

By Susan Duclos

In the last piece, we showed the Las Vegas Review Journal lambasting the Obama administration for their spin, lies, and "Benghazi blunder."

Well, another editorial this one from the U-T San Diego Editorial Board, takes not only Obama to task, but ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post, as well.

The title of their piece  all in caps is "YOU HAVE THE BLOOD OF AN AMERICAN HERO ON YOUR HANDS," and it goes downhill from there.

What did President Barack Obama know and when did he know it? Why has the Obama administration kept changing its story about how Ambassador Chris Stevens, security officials Tyrone Woods of Imperial Beach and Glen Doherty of Encinitas, and information officer Sean Smith, who grew up in San Diego, died on Sept. 11 in Benghazi, Libya? Why won’t the mainstream media treat the incontrovertible evidence of the White House’s dishonesty and incompetence like the ugly scandal it obviously is?

These are all questions that demand to be answered after revelations that demolished the tidy narrative the president has been offering about Benghazi.

The editorial board goes through the list of emerging details the Obama administration has refused to address, then blasts the mainstream media for not doing their jobs.

It has now been seven weeks since the terrorist attack. We deserve to know the truth. Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, the former Navy SEAL from Imperial Beach, said it best in a Monday TV interview.

“I can’t imagine anyone with any heart that would watch a battle rage for seven hours knowing that heroes were there that were going to be slaughtered if you didn’t have help sent in. ... Whoever it was that was in that room watching that video of my son dying, their cries for help, their order ‘don’t help them at all, let them die’ ... you have the blood of my son, you have the blood of an American hero on your hands. I don’t know who you are, but one of these days the truth will come out.”

The senior Woods is correct. Inevitably, there will be a bipartisan fact-finding commission into this terrible tragedy and its cover-up.

Unless the mainstream media stops abetting the cover-up and the facts come out without a commission wielding subpoena power.

Isn’t this a story – a gigantic story?

Of course. But we fear that ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post will only choose to realize how obvious this is after Nov. 6. Then it will come to them – spontaneously, we’re sure.

I'll repeat what I said at the end of the last piece:

The mainstream media has refused to report the emerging details about the 9/11 attack. the warnings, the classified cables telling the Obama administration the consulate couldn't  withstand a coordinated attack, the denial of help during the attack.... so many details and finally, days after they emerge, local news and reports are doing what the mainstream media is refusing to do.

Informing their readers and viewers of the truth about the gross incompetence of the Obama administration.
