Is Benghazi the most complete cover-up ever?

The Anchoress has noticed something interesting:  The Benghazi cover-up is so huge that the drive-by media isn’t doing it’s usual lying, puffing, and obfuscation.  Instead, it’s fallen completely silent.  It is pretending that Benghazi never happened.

Sherlock Holmes certainly understood that, when wrongdoing is at issue, silence is as significant as noise:

Silver Blaze“, one of the 56 Sherlock Holmes short stories written by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is one of 12 in the cycle collected as The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Doyle ranked “Silver Blaze” 13th in a list of his 19 favourite Sherlock Holmes stories.[1]

One of the most popular Sherlock Holmes short stories, “Silver Blaze” focuses on the disappearance of the titular race horse (a famous winner) on the eve of an important race and on the apparent murder of its trainer. The tale is distinguished by its atmospheric Dartmoor setting and late-Victorian sporting milieu. It also features some of Conan Doyle’s most effective plotting, hinging on the “curious incident of the dog in the night-time:”

Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): “Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
Holmes: “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
Gregory: “The dog did nothing in the night-time.”
Holmes: “That was the curious incident.”

    There are a whole lot of dogs NOT barking. A bit frightening.
    Muslim outrage? gone.
    Guy who made the video? not assassinated by outraged muslims.
    Bodies of the dead, muslim or American? buried at sea.
    Triumphal film of the attack on the consulate uploaded to Youtube by jihadis?  nope.

    More dogs?

    I think the media has just crossed their Rubicon with this Benghazi cover up.

    We have all the records of their complicity that we need.

    The Sunday talk shows (except for Fox)… silence.  Crickets chirping.

    The Washington Post and the New York Times: Silence.  Crickets chirping.  Monday’s USA Today: Silence.  Crickets chirping.

    We will see what they do in the next few days, but I suspect they are too far in to dig themselves out of it now.  They have sold their souls in a manner even more egregious than anything else they’ve done.

    Obama says he issued as his number one directive that all necessary action occur to ensure American personnel would be safe.  Then how in the world did the orders get sent, across the board, for everyone who could have come to the rescue, to stand down?

    Show that damned directive, Mr. President.  PROVE IT.  Who did you give it to, and then what did they do?  How was it that the end result was a stand down, such that four Americans died?  And if those two brave Marines had not disobeyed orders and fought, it is clear many more would have died, and it is likely all who didn’t die would have been captured as hostages.  So Joe Biden asked the grieving father of Tyrone Woods if his son always had balls the size of cue balls?  Seems to me Mr. Biden might actually be a bit peeved that the deceased hero came to the rescue.  What a strange, utterly inappropriate thing to say.

    Show us the directive, Mr. Obama.  PROVE IT.  You’ve got one hell of a lot to prove.  I am simply getting angrier and angrier.

    What people don’t understand is that the Left buried a lot more bodies than this in the last 200 years. Witnessed by the fact that people still don’t know the true nature of the Left. At least this was recorded on the internet. Imagine how many dead bodies are buried by Leftist religious dogma that were never found and never known by anyone outside the victims and the murderers.
