Scoff if you like-but it's true. A paranormal event has escaped the attention of the mainstream media. Not only is the White House haunted, we know the name of the ghost: It's “Not Me”.

It's not like he's unknown either! Bil Keane made him famous in the wildly popular syndicated comic strip Family Circus. Remember in the famous strip when something at the family home went wrong and no one would take responsibility? "Did you break the lamp?" Immediately there was a choir of instant denials. But, there in the background was the little ghost called Not Me. "Who spilled the milk all over the floor?" There he was again running through the kitchen with milk clearly on his shoes. Well, clearly the little devil has moved from the comic strip to the White House!

Four Americans were savagely killed in our country's service in Benghazi. Something went terribly wrong. We now know that months before the disaster our personnel on the ground in Libya begged for more protection and it was denied. We also know that on the night of the attack there was a desperate cry for assistance and no one came. Our government was warned on numerous occasions that an attack was very possible and yet no preparation was made for the defense of our citizens. Someone or possibly many were responsible for these terrible miscues and yet when questions are asked of basically anyone in this administration, the answer is always the same: Not Me did it!

The Secretary of State said she took "full responsibility" and yet when really pressed as to who was responsible she defiantly declared, "Not Me!" When the Press Secretary for the President was asked similar questions, he named the rascal who was responsible and sure enough it was Not Me. When the President himself was questioned, even the President admitted that the little ghost had come to live in the White House residence and told the world that Not Me was responsible.
