Another important nugget was buried in the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi report, and covered up by members of the media desperate for Hillary Clinton to run for the presidency, unscathed by trivial matters like Benghazi. The entire Libyan war could have been avoided. That’s right. Muammar Gaddafi had offered to abdicate peacefully and turn over power, thus avoiding bloodshed and war.

A former admiral, Chuck Kubic was working those negotiations between the U.S. and Libyan military chains of command before he was told to step aside by Washington. Gaddafi wanted only two conditions to step down: permission to keep fighting al-Qaeda and the removal of sanctions against him. The Obama administration was uninterested in peace. They turned down the offer to broker a peaceful exit for the Libyan strongman. And thus months of bloodshed, culminating in the attack on the consulate in Benghazi.

Hillary Clinton would like us all to drop the B-word from our vocabulary. She and her spinmeisters have convinced the press to do exactly that. Reporters who have tried to cover it, reporters such as Lara Logan and Sharyl Attkisson, have been demoted and fired. They’ve been told by their senior editors that Benghazi is old news. That it’s a partisan agenda cooked up by Republicans to hurt Hillary. If that were true, why aren’t more Republicans speaking up?

We need more truth. We need more people digging out the facts. Even if our elected leaders won’t do it, even if our betters in the mainstream media won’t do it, we must.
