More lies: Benghazi-related penalties for State Department officials reportedly bogus

Evidently it can get too crowded under Obama’s bus.

Four State Department officials who reportedly took the fall for the Obama administration’s deadly failures in Benghazi will all be back at work soon.

Keeping them honest? They’ll be kicking, screaming and dragging their feet all the way. The New York Post reports:

The highest-ranking official caught up in the scandal, Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, has not “resigned” from government service, as officials said last week. He is just switching desks. And the other three are simply on administrative leave and are expected back.

Unlike your health insurance, if you like your job, you can keep it in Obama’s America. Resignation, schmesignation!

A State Department spokeswoman had said that Hillary Clinton “accepted Eric Boswell’s decision to resign as assistant secretary for diplomatic security, effective immediately.” But according to the Post, “What Nuland omitted was that Boswell gave up only the presidential appointment as assistant secretary, not his other portfolios.” It was all theater.

Assistant Secretary of State: nice work if you can get it.

That’s what they think. Little do they know how wrong they are.

    The depths to which this Administration will stoop is astounding.

    • Severe Conservative

      But not the least bit surprising.

  • Steve_J

    When an administration has a mainly compliant Congress and media they can do this kind of thing and not have to worry about any repercussions.

    We always win. Always. You people will always lose. You just don’t have it in you to fight us, and crucially, to use unethical tactics.

    • Red Fred

      Sometimes “winning” can be characterized by pursuit of a goal without compromising values and integrity.

    • orringtonmom (D)

      “you” are increasingly making the prize less desirable…

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Like massive voter fraud, massive payoffs to unions in return for lockstep support, and mythomaniacal demagoguery from the teleprompter? You’re right.

      Of course, you didn’t win in 2000 and 2004.

    • beebop1952

      Personally? I am not ashamed to have ethics. You should be ashamed to have none.

      • Bob Smooper

        The ends justify the means. We believe you on the right are simply evil and must be defeated – even if that means being unethical ourselves.

        • Shawn Smith

          Thanks for confessing. You realize this mindset is exactly what motivates terrorists to kill innocent civilians?

        • Garth Haycock

          You are a small-minded hate-filled reprobate and represent everything that is wrong with this country.

        • Catchance

          You know, I really think you should call yourself Catbert, from Dilbert’s evil HR rep. You’re really pretty funny, now that I know it’s deliberate.

    Apparently a once you get a job with the government, you can always have a job with the government, even if you don’t do well with it.

    This is the Obamuh SADministration where nothing is as it is made to appear.

    • MoxieLouise

      Most transparent in history. Uh-huh.

    Clinton State Department employs same ethics and responsibility as the Clinton White House.

  • michael s

    Unfortunately this is what incorrectly focused hysteria and targeting brings about. The focus should have always been on the SEC OF STATE AND HER AGENCY as well as THE SEC OF DEFENSE AND HIS AGENCY. Instead it was get Pres Obama And UN Ambassador Rice. Now we see people with more culpability than UN Ambassador Rice not getting punished. I said a string em up mentality will do a disservice to Ambassador Stevens and the others. There are other investigations ,justice should come soon.

    • beebop1952

      You weren’t paying attention. And now you are pointing to the “other” shiney object.

      • michael s

        shiny not shiney.

        • Catchance

          Look! Squirrel!

    • Catchance

      Oh, Michael… there was so much going on that no one but the WH knew about… until Chris Stevens was killed. It’s starting to come out now… gun running to al Qaeda and Syria, CIA involvement, plots and plans re the ‘Blind Sheikh’… the problem with the so-called ‘investigations’, is that the departments doing them are also complicit. It’s going to take a few honest outsiders to come up with the truth, and the media are just as complicit. Where are Bernstein and Woodward now? This is just like the Watergate scandal, only no one was killed then.

      • michael s

        So the FBI CIA DOD Congressional and Senate investigation committees are collusive in those 4 Americans deaths? You could be correct. Although I believe the correct investigation with the correct focus will give the correct answers.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          Just like JFK’s assassination. Oh wait…

  • Marty Luther

    Although the murdered Americans will remain dead, those in government responsible for the inaction that caused this debacle will remain on the job. Remember kids, FORWARD!

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    And where IS Hillary, lately?

    • Garth Haycock

      Apparently, she fell down and went boom.

  • OldmanRick

    Since when has anyone been able to trust anything from the bowels of the “most transparent administration ever”? Just more political theatre and posturing from spin city east, home of the thought police. As long as Obummer and his trolls are in charge, Americans will see and hear nothing more than political theatre and BS from the dims.

  • dinkerduo

    Obama has committed so many “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” he should be impeached and tried for treason! Amb. Stevens’s killing reminds me of Vince Foster—he’s the “friend” of the Clintons (Whitewater) who was found dead of a gun shot to the back of his head who “supposedally” committed suicide! He knew too much about Whitewater like Amb. Stevens knew too much about the munitions running to Syrian rebels who are al Qaeda! Same Clinton—hummmm! Same goes to the 4 Generals and one Admiral who have been relieved of their command! Thank God there are still people out there who have the decency to tell Obama to go to hell!
    When BO says that we ought to pay our fair share he doesn’t mean the rich Americans to the poor—he means AMERICA NEEDS TO PAY HER FAIR SHARE TO THE WORLD
    since we have done so well compared to the rest of the world!
    As far as the illegal alien problem goes—shut the southern border—deport the ones who have committed any type of crime (they can take there families with them)—put a stop to birthright citizenship!—chain migration, etc!—enforce the laws that are already on the books—NO WORK VISAS TO ANYONE until every American who wants a job has one, period!
    And for the love of Pete—TERM LIMITS–TERM LIMITS–TERM LIMITS!!!

  • Frank DiSalle

    With the MSM on your side, you can get away with a lot. Their job is to report things so that a Den of Thieves like the Obama administration can’t get away with the stuff they pull.
    If you think it would be ridiculous to compare this to the coverage this all would get during GW Bush’s administration, try to imagine how the whole Benghazi affair, Fast and Furious, and Hurricane Sandy would be covered in the Nixon administration !!

  • Gallatin

    It’s okay with me that they didn’t actually resign, I don’t believe for one second that these low level employees made the decisions that mattered. I believe the “buck” stopped somewhere else.

  • BeeKaaay

    Leftwingwackos are bloodthirsty. They arrange for people to get slaughtered in cold blood and then they reward the people making the decisions with unresignable jobs.

  • Garth Haycock

    What are the lives of four Americans when compared to the reelection of Dear Leader?

    This is yet more proof of the most corrupt administration in this country’s history. I’d say it’s unbelievable, but it’s the status quo for Obamao.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    Why should they leave? They’re service has been exactly what Emperor Dingleberry desired.

    He was happy with the outcome, so when things cool down they’ll get bonuses & raises.

  • rant stocks

    AMERICA YOU HAVE LOST YOUR POWER…Yes YOU have the power,collectively as CITIZENS to protest in ALL wrong doing in Washington but you never use it. America has a bad case of the Osrich Effect. (Stick Your Head In A Hole) when danger comes,no moral foundation to stand up and say “No this is not right” Pathetic!

    Hey finally some transparency.

    The left wing finally finds a religious policy that they approve of. Too bad that it is the pedophile priest 3 card monte.
