What Is Truth? Hillary's Testimony on Benghazi
Adlai Stephenson, in his speech to the UN during the Cuban Missile Crisis said this to the Soviet ambassador: "I do not have your talent for obfuscation, for distortion, for confusing language, and for doubletalk. And I must confess to you that I am glad that I do not!"
Hillary Clinton's testimony with the House Select Committee on Benghazi is a perfect study of doublespeak and obfuscation.
I think Charles Krouthammer best summed up her testimony: "We're not going to get the contradictions, we're not going to get the facts, we're not going to get the real story underlying it. We're living in an age where what you say and its relation with the facts is completely irrelevant as we see in the presidential campaign. And it's carrying over into the hearings."
We are a nation of moral and ethical pygmies whose leaders and leader wannabes reflect the paucity of our thought by spewing constant lies and deceits. We are a nation of fallen people, as long as we continue to follow the blithe path of corrupt principles. We are a nation of fallen people when we give power to a person such as Hillary, who cannot tell the truth even when confronted with facts. We are a nation of fallen people when we excuse those who have no honor nor integrity because they claim ideological superiority.
Honesty, integrity, forthrightness, and morality are still relevant and necessary. Our nation cannot continue without them.
