What I meant was, what's to prevent the President from slapping "Classified" or "Executive Privelege" on it and burying it until the next century. We still don't have most of the information from "Fast and Furious," they should be able to hide this for years.
I may be missing it, but why should the real info ever come out?
So that we can make an assessment based of real facts, not expediency as stated before.
Well, I'm pretty sure that neither the Democrats nor the press will go running after the story. If the Republicans try, it will be labelled as "politically expedient." So who does have the muscle and political neutrality to get the facts out?
Yes, it matters.
If the motivation is political, the facts will be twisted to fit the benefit of what is politically expedient.
I'd be more likely to accept that if 1.) we were talking about a big deal of money and 2.) if I could see how killing the American ambassador resulted in greater weapons sales.
Here, you've lost me. I'm not clever enough to see how Benghazi ties into the Military-Industrial Complex so thoroughly that we'll sacrifice people and possibly political careers for it.
What would a few lives matter to a President if they were able to assist the "complex" in distributing more arms, weapon systems and other such items?
