Coincidences and Coverups

Ahmed Abu Khatalla is captured after 2 years since his involvement with the Benghazi 911 attack that killed our ambassador and 3 Americans. Hillary Clinton gets interviewed by Fox News Network practically at the same time we learn of this. Coincidence?

The IRS loses 2 years of emails that would have clarified the involvement of Lois Lerner and perhaps Barack Obama in the scandal that targeted conservative groups, keeping them from obtaining their tax exempt status. Then 6 more IRS officials had "the dog eat their emails."  Another coincidence?

Obama trades 5 Taliban terrorists for a lowly Army deserter. This happens at the same time when he is planning to close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility. Now there's talk of him releasing scores more of these dangerous thugs. Yet another coincidence?

We had the Fast and Furious scandal, Benghazi, Bergdahl, Solyndra, the IRS, AP, NSA, James Rosen, and the New Black Panthers voting suppression scandal, lest we forget. One administration, so many "phony scandals." 

We have to ask ourselves the question: what are the chances we will ever get the hard evidence, the communications, emails and the like, about these scandals? Probably about as much chance as catching Jay Carney being totally truthful about Obama.

According to the Associated Press, the Obama administration last year cited "national security" 8,496 times to withhold information requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). This is a 57% increase from the previous year. In fact, 36% of FOIA requests made in 2013 were either censored or denied, and in 196,034 other occasions, the "dog ate the homework" excuse was used--that is, they simply could not find the records requested.

So "the most transparent administration ever" is exactly the opposite of that claim. It should give you pause to wonder what other lies have they told, and what are they not telling us.
