When That 3:00 am Call Came ….


by Richard H. Frank

Remember the political ad run by Hillary Clinton’s campaign against Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential Primary? The ad questioned who “we the People” would want to answer the call at 3:00 a.m. when it finally came – Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama?

That fateful day came on September 11, 2012, not at 3:00 a.m. but at approximately 3:00 pm from Benghazi to the Pentagon and within the hour reportedly to Barack Obama and also Hillary Clinton.

The subject of that call was confirmation that the attack on the Consulate in Benghazi was indeed a terrorist attack. Yet the President with Hillary Clinton standing at a his side confidently asserted the attack resulted from a spontaneous uprising in protest of a video mocking the Muslim Prophet Mohammed. These contrived lies were reinforced by members of the Obama Administration for over three months before they abandoned the myth. The ARM Report commissioned by Hillary Clinton was the final attempt on the part of then Obama Administration to whitewash the entire affair. Finally, when Secretary Clinton was questioned during a public Congressional Committee, she asserted “What difference at this point does it make?”

Well, for those of us paying attention, it really does matter. If the best we can do is to elect people like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to be the individual in charge when that 3:00 a.m. call comes in, May God have mercy on us all.

When our President and Secretary of State consider their political futures and elections more important than protecting our diplomats and military personnel, they have no moral or legitimate right to hold office in this Republic.

Sixteen months after the fact we still don’t know where President Obama and Hillary Clinton were and what they were doing for the hours following this orchestrated attack on American soil in a foreign country.

Politics over principle seems to be the ideology of the entire Obama Administration and the partisan divide present in the U.S. Senate. The Obama government is not only incompetent but the most corrupt administration seen in my lifetime. Yet many Americans just don’t seem to care so long as their individual lives are not impacted by the actions of those they elect to public office. Like a frog placed in a pot of cold water on a stove, they remain content in their ignorance until the water temperature reaches the boiling point and they can no longer escape. The very freedoms our military fought and died for are now in jeopardy due to the ideology of individuals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. “We the People” can and must do better when making choices for those that will lead this nation in the future.
