Nowhere to Run

"truth will come to the length truth will out."
~ William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Translation for the Obama administration: Eventually, you're going to get nailed on Benghazi.

With additional arrests today in the horrific Boston Marathon bombing, the American public's attention is once again focused on national security. That is very good news for our country, but very bad news for a president who has been comfortably outrunning the clock on the September 11, 2012 Islamist terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

According to the president's spokesperson after being questioned, Benghazi "happened a long time ago." Less that eight months qualifies as a long time? That's a rather rapid fading of the memory of the four Americans who were murdered waiting for help that would never come. It sounds more like a complaint that this inconvenient story is preventing progress in moving along to the next Obama disaster. It is, as Charles Krauthammer noted, "the definition of chutzpah."

But all the president's stonewalling, ignoring, dismissing, and flat-out lying about Benghazi won't matter in the end. It may take years, but the truth will come out.
