The latest news on the events that took place in Benghazi confirm that the CIA asked for permission to rescue and were denied four times.
Leon Panetta claims there wasn't enough information on the ground to send help.
I guess they think we are too stupid to remember that it was being covered live on CNN. We were all watching what was happening on the ground on television.
Or maybe that's not it at all. Maybe they know that educated people know they are lying and they are simply entrapping people who are uneducated or oblivious to the truth. Or people who care about big bird but not the murders of real people.
When you look at the statistics in the polls, the realization that close to half of the country are either uneducated or do not care about the murders of real people - it's a rather pathetic indictment of where the emotional attachments of an awful lot of Americans.
Blinded, they will hail and elect their own murderers.
There was a little bit of controversy a few weeks back when Mike Voris seemed to be inviting the persecutions and mayhem of Christendom. But rather than choosing that path, I think he was just giving the witness.
We all know what happens to Christ's Mystical Body. At some point in time, the beast is going to rise and use the village idiots to persecute and kill us. There is a delicate balance to the mercy of God. When Christendom can and is converting with more efficacy than the beast, we are in a reprieve for the intervention of mercy that does not come in the form of rescue from our persecutors. Christ's Mystical Body reaches the point where It sheds blood and this time, it is us. As the blood of martyrs falls to earth, it seeds conversion.
I think Michael was witnessing to the surrender. In response to Cardinal Dolan's cowardice, he was witnessing to willingness. After begging to let the cup pass, standing up in our gethsemene and pledging allegiance to our fate if this is the time and place.
Selfishly, we all hope it isn't. But somebody has to do it. It's going to happen sooner or later. Our prophets smell blood. We all hope it is foisted upon another generation. Maybe when there are more of us. We've done a crappy job for the last 50 years.
I'm still on my knees calling all the muchachos to beg for another way out.
Our Savoir, He can move the mountains.
Our God is mighty to save.
He is mighty to save.
He rose and conquered the grave.
