I am sure there are many that are of a reasonable mind that would Say “Lets not jump to Conclusions” or “You know what happens when you Assume” When it concerns matters where we might lack.”All the Facts”

I’m not one of those people..

I can be an opinionated A-Hole at will, this will be one of those willful moments.

So a story broke that CBS News has learned that a computer was hacked belonging to their  Reporter, Sharyl Attkisson.

Here is the story.

Here is the part that really got me thinking..

“Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data. This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion. CBS News is taking steps to identify the responsible party and their method of access.”

For those who are Unaware MS. Attkisson is a Journalist that values the truth more than just what serves an agenda. I don’t know her politics, and I shouldn’t. I do believe she is simply doing her job.

Here is one of her stories.

But Here we have one of the Stories that she Just so happened to be Investigating when her Computer files were rifled through.

I found both Pieces fair and accurate, the results of which shine a uncomfortable light on the Obama Administration and State Department.

During Election season…

Now Who.. I Ask.. would want to know what was on the computer of a reporter covering a story that was potentially devastating to the Obama Campaign.. A reporter who has shown she reports the news.. Not what the White House might want reported, on a network that reached ALL of a America..

Why .. who in the world would want to know that..?

I have said Personally that events leading up to the Benghazi Attack and those that followed(You know, the order to Stand down to the rescue teams, The Talking points Changing, blaming a Video, etc,) where a result of decisions that were politically motivated to win an election.

My opinion, which I am unapologetic about having, is that the rush for damage control turned into a cover up, and the lives of four Americans became irrelevant  to the greater good of seeing President Obama re-elected.

Why do I think this? Because it makes sense, its logical, it fits a profile of behavior by this administration.

What behavior?.. Why things like this…

The IRS scandal

The James Rosen wire taps

The AP wiretaps.

Fast and furious Case.

All of those stories.. they were covered by Sharryl Attkisson.. Just Like The Benghazi attack…

Yeah.. we should wait for “All the facts”

Disclaimer…

Why Benghazi matters to me. The state of this nation divided is such that before I can give this unsolicited opinion I must state a few facts. I am not a liberal, nor a conservative, a racist, warmonger, kool-aid drinker, sheeple, anti-muslim, bigot, neo-con, Rino, tea- party patriot, tea-bagger, xenophobe, member of the bias media, or member of a political action committee. I am, an American citizen, with the an expectation of honesty from our government, and for that government to place the well being of its citizens above that of a political party, or that party’s interests.
