    Sure until she reads it. Or have Jeff read it to her. Her feed back would be good too.

    Folks have asked for facts on the Benghazi fiasco. Smoking gun facts are difficult to document and practically impossible so in Washington D.C. In D.C. everything is shaped and spun to maximize a favorable presentation and minimize the damage. Events in D.C. are not by happenstance or coincidence everything is orchestrated. Lie cheat and steal is the Washington culture and screw all that stuff about honesty and integrity. So I offer this as the closest to fact that I can indentify. So you are welcomed to your opinion but if you have some facts please throw them out there.
    1. CIA intelligence knew in the first few hours Benghazi was not a stupid movie demonstration but a well planned 911 celebration to remind us the terrorist are still potent. This was documented in hearings with then CIA Director Petraeus.
    2. Conveniently Hill came down with a case of the diplomatic flu so she could not answer questions from the public or in senate hearings. The flu was not so bad as to require a hospital visit that would include pesky documentation of her condition. The major league cluster foul up and cover up would look bad during a presidential run in 2016.
    3. Susan Rice was chosen by the Obama administration to answer the troublesome questions about Benghazi. In Obama’s own words he said Rice was the “least connected person” to the Benghazi fiasco. So that makes sense to send in the least qualified or knowledgeable person to defend the Benghazi fiasco. Right! After the session with McCain and Lindsey they were more convinced than ever there was a cover up being fed to the public.
    4. Rice had four or five days to gather information and get this story right. But, behold she presented a completely different story to the Sunday talk shows than the CIA knew to be fact. And that’s a generous way to say it.
    5. In the middle of the whole deal Rice was nominated as a replacement for Hill. In my opinion that was the same as staking out a pure little female lamb in lion country for the lions to ravage. Lions being mean old white male republicans. More of the administrations skullduggery to divide and create conflict in the country between black, white, male, female, old, young, democrats, republicans, rich and poor. And I have to give Obama credit he has done this with mastery. Divide and conquer has worked for 4000 years.

    “Zipper sounds as if he at least recognizes literary problems when he sees them.”


    First, he tells Jeff, “you got nothin’, dude.” Then he yells up through the floor at Joanie, “This stuff is great! Wow! Pure gold!”


    Editor? Co-author? He hasn’t the chances of a snowman on the surface of the sun.

    How do you know “smoking gun” assertions are facts before you document them? Nor have you provided documentation. Not a shred.

    I think several Gocomics commenters use that method and achieve the same results.

    Hmmm—not sure what your point is, unless you totally missed the obvious. How about agent, then? He’s honest with the writer about the work but distracts the editor/publisher with lies to give the writer space to come about.

    Zipper has just picked out his career, and he has a GREAT future in front of him…a publicist for a Movie Studio, or Book Publishing House!
    “An EPIC, Sprawling Western Adventure! Be sure NOT to miss ’Heaven’s Gate’”!
    “Full of Laughs! The funniest movie you will EVER See! Hurry to your local theater to see ‘Ishtar’”!
    Yup, he has the requisite skills.

    OK, 10% may be opinion the remaining 90% is verifiable even in the liberal leaning Obama loving press. Suggest you start with the WSJ. If you have verifiable documentation that what I stated is incorrect please march it out there.
