In 1997, with the weight of several years of Internet and more primitive mail order activism accusing the Executive Branch of gross criminal behavior, a new scandal was suddenly injected into the conversation: Chinese political contributions—we have laws about that!
In retrospect, the move seems almost comically brilliant. The scandal expanded to tech transfers from Loral (which Richard Perle cleared up –scroll to the comments from this chap, JohnGalt for my old fans–,for his usual fee of course.) And without breaking a rhythm, Laurie Mylroie had turned the OKC Bombing into something Saddam done. Like he done 9/11.
In the aftermath of the Benghazi SNAFU, the old rightwing blogshpere suggested the ambassador was gay, and that might have something to do with his death. I keep in the back of my mind, that maybe that is the cover-up.
Bonkers Bolton thinks Benghazi will bring Obama down—like China Money brought down Bill Clinton, not, as they said.
The heart of the matter is that the CIA was using Libya to traffic arms to terrorists in Syria and some noise has to be created to obscure this reality. Back at the time, WND rolled out Family Research Council spook and Waco criminal, General Boykin to say that CIA is not running guns to jihadist terrorists—someone figure out why he could say such things if not one of the actors?
