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.
