BENGHAZI: MENTIONING BUSH? CHENEY? ROMNEY? MORE DEFLECTION AND DISTRACTION BY CITING DEMOCRAT POLITICAL OPERATIVE’S REPUBLICAN ASSOCIATIONS

The Obama Administration is doing everything in its power to avoid further scrutiny of Benghazi …

As I wrote in another blog post: BENGHAZI: IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION USING THE IRS SCANDAL AS A DEFENSE AGAINST IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES?

A great strategy if the Benghazi scandal would lead to impeachable and prosecutable criminal offenses such as the deliberate violation of international arms control treaties, the illegal trafficking of military weaponry, running a rogue intelligence and “direct action” military operation out of the White House bypassing the military chain of command, lying to Congress during sworn testimony, or other unspecified crimes involving diversion of “black funds” for political (either foreign or domestic) use.

So what better way to counter the growing Benghazi scandal than “Mention Bush and His Administration” …

Meet the Former Aide to Dick Cheney and Wife of a Mitt Romney Advisor Who Happens to Be at the Center of the Benghazi Scandal -- State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland has quite the Republican party pedigree.

After ABC News  released emails detailing the evolution of the Obama administration’s talking points on the Benghazi terror attack,  much of the right’s ire has focused on Victoria Nuland, the State Department spokesperson who asked for the removal of references to al-Qaida and the CIA’s warnings about the dangers to U.S. diplomats in Libya.

With her name splashed all over the emails and her very public role in Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Nuland serves the useful dual role of scapegoat and proxy for the potential 2016 presidential candidate, who may be the real target of conservative uproar over Benghazi. Naturally, critics ascribe political motives to Nuland’s actions in the Benghazi aftermath. “It’s very clear today that  lib Victoria Nuland was not honest with reporters,” conservative blogger Jim Hoft wrote.

But Nuland may prove to be a poor choice of left-wing villain for the right considering that her record suggests she’s anything but a Saul Alinskyite. In fact, she came under attack  from the left when Clinton chose her as spokesperson because she had previously served as  a senior adviser to Dick Cheney. Yes, that Dick Cheney, leading antiwar blogger Marcy Wheeler to call her a “ former Cheney hack.”

Meanwhile, Nuland is married to Washington Post columnist and neoconservative historian Robert Kagan, who helped sell the case for the Iraq War, advised both Mitt Romney and John McCain’s presidential campaigns, and  co-founded the Project for a New American Century think tank with Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol. Obama has  spoken fondly of some of Kagan’s work as well, but his credentials in the conservative foreign policy establishment are unimpeachable.

The truth …

Nuland is a career political employee … and as such is being tossed under the Obama bus as an expendable – designed to deflect and detract from the real Benghazi scandal. Nuland, repeatedly cited that her superiors were unhappy with the talking points – thus pointing upward to those in power.

Why should we care that Nuland appears to be married to a Republican conservative and more than uber-democrat-progressive James Carville is married to a uber-republican-conservative Mary Matalin?

Don’t be fooled … Benghazi is not going away!
