‘Closer to being idiots’

The Administration is trying with all its might to put Benghazi to bed and is now offering anonymous interviews to the media. The intent is to defuse the lie, deceive, and distort story angle and instead, to portray those in the Administration as truthful, yet obviously befuddled, idiots. Really.

The befuddled idiot angle seems self-evident:

The list of mea culpas by Obama administration officials involved in the Benghazi response and aftermath include: standing down the counterterrorism Foreign Emergency Support Team, failing to convene the Counterterrorism Security Group, failing to release the disputed Benghazi “talking points” when Congress asked for them, and using the word “spontaneous” while avoiding the word “terrorism.”

Ah, but consider the context of Benghazi cover-up. It was less than 60 days out from the presidential election and Benghazi was wholly contrary to the President’s desired narrative.

Some may rightly wonder why this is supposed to be an either-or deal: after all, it’s possible to be both a liar and an idiot.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
