“Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” This hackneyed phrase seems most appropriate when applied to the Benghazi investigation, which all seems to point to President Obama himself.

Ever since the fateful night of Sept. 11, 2012, when four great Americans deserted in battle gave their last full measure of devotion, it seems that diversion has been the adopted strategy to cover the truth. Attempts have been made by congressional committees to uncover the truth.

They have sought answers from various administration officials when it is evident that one man that knew, or should have known, what was going on that night was the president, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces; and he has shown no official interest in the investigation, except to divert attention from it.

An attack on an American embassy is an attack on the sovereignty of the U.S. and thereby an act of war. The questions that need to answered are:

• Where was the commander-in-chief that night, when the sovereignty of our nation was under attack?

• What orders were given in the ensuing hours?

• What part did he play in formulating the lies of former U.S. diplot Susan Rice?

• Who was responsible for the lies of the parents of the dead that day when their bodies were returned to Andrews Air Force Base where President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton all engaged in deception? This night will live forever in infamy, not because of the destruction of the embassy itself, neither the loss of life, but because of the stench that attaches itself to betrayal of brave men dying in service to their country.
