CBS News Mocks Benghazi Whistleblower
CBS News has a piece quietly mocking a Benghazi whistleblower for writing poetry in a classic example of how the MSM marginalizes opponents of Barack Obama:
Raymond Maxwell, who was one of Hillary Clinton’s State Department officials who was disciplined for security lapses vis-à-vis Benghazi, has been writing poetry since he was put on leave.
Significantly, some of the poetry deals with Maxwell’s frustration at being made a scapegoat:
The web of lies they weave / gets tighter and tighter / in its deceit / until it bottoms out - / at a very low frequency - / and implodes...Yet all the while, / the more they talk, / the more they lie, / and the deeper down the hole they go... Just wait.../ just wait and feed them the rope.
Another poem, entitled "Invitation," is a reflection of his being forced out on December 18 after the State Department's Accountability Review Board (ARB), four of whose five members were appointed by Hillary Clinton, foisted the blame onto security officials. Part of the poem reads:
The Queen's Henchmen / request the pleasure of your company / at a Lynching - / to be held / at 23rd and C Streets NW [State Dept. building] / on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 / just past sunset. / Dress: Formal, Masks and Hoods- / the four being lynched / must never know the identities/ of their executioners, or what/ whose sin required their sacrifice./ A blood sacrifice- / to divert the hounds- / to appease the gods- / to cleanse our filth and /satisfy our guilty consciences...
CBS News calls Maxwell’s verses “bold” and “shocking.”
But it’s only bold and shocking for those who refuse to believe how guilty the upper echelon of the Obama Administration is, and how damning the evidence is of their willingness to throw others under the bus.
