Benghazi Proves We Really Are in the Twilight Zone

This post at Instapundit gets at the most bewildering/infuriating/embarrassing/shameful aspect of the Benghazi debacle.

The fact that the government was unprepared for a 9/11 attack.  Stupid, but it's the government.  So I can live with that.

The fact that they hung Americans out to dry, and ultimately to die.  Not fine, but I understand that statecraft is messy and that absolutely pure Judeo-Christian morality sometimes takes a backseat in keeping a great nation and its interests intact.  That I understand and lament but I can live with that.

But the fact that the government of the United States of America came up with a lie that wasn't worthy of my nine year-old son and broadcast that same lie to the world is shocking to the core.  These are powerful and putatively smart people and my nine year-old could have come up with a better lie.  (BTW, the young Master Baseball ate a half a box of Thin Mints and then tried to convince me that he brushed his teeth as brown saliva seeped out the side of his mouth, and his BS was more believable than the Obama/Clinton/Rice shit show.)

Among the myriad other depressing aspects of our modern government we now have the prospect of them not even being able to lie well.  They can't even cover up their feckless incompetence with any level of plausibility.

Enjoy your government America.
