Despite common belief that this quote is accurate, there is no actual proof that Admiral Yamamoto actually made the statement. It was known, however, that the Admiral was very skeptical of being successful in the ultimate war plan but, being a good Naval officer, he followed his orders.
I cite this quote since it is so appropriate today in light of the evidence that is finally starting to jell with regard to the White House and its shameful action, or lack thereof, in support of our besieged personnel in Benghazi on September 11th nearly two years ago. I will wait to talk about the details and what I think of them until after the dust settles and the air clears, but I think it is clear that the Obama Administration is in dire trouble and it appears that finally all of the lies and the deception that has been used against the American people is, in the words of his friend the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, "coming home to roost".
Over the last five years America has been subject to a display of outright arrogance and lawbreaking by an Administration that will do anything to remain in power by silencing those who oppose it. The list of things done that have been clearly wrong is long, including: Fast and Furious, lack of law enforcement by the Justice Department, IRS abuse, trampling of state's rights as well as individual rights, destruction of the best medical system in the world and replacing it with a non-system which is both unworkable, unaffordable, and subject to the playing of favorites, wasted resources such as solar power schemes, refusal to approve the Keystone Pipeline, and the list goes on and on.
So while I am not ready to assume that this "so called smoking gun" will result in action to end the disaster that is the current White House crony capitalist operation, I do think it will pressure something significant and I don't think that now that a Special Committee will be convened it can be swept under the rug. In that regard, I think this is a great day for America and, as the Japanese Admiral is thought to have said so many years ago, I hope that the sleeping giant that is the resolve and the strength of the American people is finally awake. I will also pray for the day to come when Americans will once again be comfortable with their own government and the strife and divisiveness that we see today is ended. May God help us reach that day.
