Whilst our beleaguered non-commander-in-no-chief used his teleprompter early on to vow to “not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act,” Americans are still waiting to find out who actually orchestrated the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi that killed two of our brave former Navy Seal heroes (Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty), our Ambassador to Libya (Christopher Stevens), and Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and just why known imminent threats to security were not properly addressed by our government in time to avoid this bloodletting on designated American soil.
In fact, we are still waiting for the non-commander-in-no-chief Barack Hussein Obama and former Secretariat of Statism Hillary Clinton to be held accountable for their gross incompetence and their willful negligence in upholding their sworn duty to protect and defend our Constitution, with the primary focus of protecting the lives of American citizens the world over. That accountability is the only justice that will satisfy many of us. What we are witnessing instead is an ongoing cover-up that looks like a newer version of just another old government dance. This one should be called The Benghazi Shuffle.

Let’s take a look at the early steps of this new dance.
Of course, the day after the Benghazi attack, our no-chief danced around the issue by making a Clintonesque speech about “terror.” These are his exact words: “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.” He continues: “I want people around the world to hear me. To all those who would do us harm: No act of terror will go unpunished. It will not dim the light of the values we proudly present to the world.”
If you study his prepared speech carefully, you will see that never once did he call the attack in Benghazi an act of terrorism. He called it “this terrible act.” He mentioned the term “terror” twice, but in a general sense of our resolve in the face of terror. We have known for a long time that specific words can lose their precise meaning as we remember the now-infamous words of another shamed and shameful non-commander-in-no-chief, William Jefferson Clinton, when he said in a grand jury testimony: “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the—if he—if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not—that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement.” Looks like our first mulatto president studied well the dance steps from our first black president, and justice was denied again.
That same day, our former Secretariat of Statism Hillary Clinton came under scrutiny with her own prepared speech that began by adding more intricate steps to The Benghazi Shuffle with the following spin of cause and effect: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our Embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear – there is no justification for this, none. Violence like this is no way to honor religion or faith. And as long as there are those who would take innocent life in the name of God, the world will never know a true and lasting peace.”

I would first like to point out that no one, anywhere in the world, claims this murderous attack was committed in the name of God. Excuse me, Mrs. former Secretariat of Statism, it is Allah to whom you should have given attribution, and Allah does appear to condone the taking of innocent life in his name.
Further, notice how Hillary immediately parses her words by stating that “some have sought,” when not one person she spoke to in those first twenty-four hours has come forward and said that they told her this attack was in response to “inflammatory material posted on the internet.” No doubt this was a deliberate choice of words so that she could not be left standing without a chair when the music finally stops. Never let it be said that truth might get in the way of one of the most famous Shuffle dancers in the world today.
Sadly then, shortly after the beginning of The Benghazi Shuffle, Clinton fainted and bumped her head, so she wasn’t able to complete the dance steps and testify while the embers were still smoldering.
The ensuing MRI results showed that a blood clot in her brain was discovered. But, according to Aaron S. Dumont, director of cerebrovascular surgery at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia “head trauma can cause blood in a venous sinus to clot, but it almost always has to be severe enough to cause a skull fracture … It’s probably a coincidence,” he said of Clinton’s fainting spell and the clot.
Being something of a skeptic when it comes to leftist politics and their two-step media, with all due respect for the health and well-being of former Secretariat of Statism Clinton, I can’t help but find myself wondering how these most convenient moves happen at just the right choreographed time and place. But then, really, what difference does it make?
