LIVES WERE LOST

Very unsettling documents have been released that reflect what many people already stated – Benghazi deaths and injuries were not only targeted, planned events but that Stevens had been warning the State Dept. that things were spiraling out of control and they were being threatened. Hillary has stated the buck stops with her which is true to a point. Ultimately the buck stops with the president but considering we have a vacuum of leadership in that role we will have to settle with the buck stopping with her. Investigations are needed obviously but in the meantime some response is needed. Not a response of ringing one’s hands, wagging a finger or putting one’s hand in someone’s face to stop the dialogue. Response and repercussions are overdue.

O has had over a month to figure out how best to position himself in this real tragic situation. He is an arm-chair quarterback unable to perform in fluid situations. He is a poser (see second debate for examples).

Still though lives were lost. Human beings who meant much to many people are no longer interacting with family, friends and peers. Hugs are no longer experienced. Conversations and play are unable be enjoyed. LIVES WERE LOST. And all the executive branch of our government can muster is photo-ops and political rhetoric. LIVES WERE LOST. One’s pension, if actually paid, means little to those individuals — most certainly they would rather have the living person. But LIVES WERE LOST because of failed policies. Because of believing one’s political spin instead of facts. LIVES WERE LOST and yet time and lives go on.  Repercussions for the vacuum of leadership?
