Dear Editor:

Well, it’s been almost five months since Sept. 11, 2012, the night U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans were murdered by an al-Qaeda-linked terrorist assault on the Benghazi consulate. On Sept. 20, as “the You Tube-video-did it” lie fell apart; the Obama Regime vowed to “look into” the attack. The FBI would investigate. The so-called independent Accountability Review Board (ARB) would delve into all the details and issue a report. The State Department would tell Congress.

Right. The FBI’s designated gumshoes spent three weeks cooling their heels outside Libya. Then they blew through their crime scene investigation at the Benghazi compound — which was, and remains, unsecured — in three hours. And not a word from them since.

On Dec. 13, a week before scheduled Congressional hearings, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland sniffed that the ARB report wasn’t necessarily ready, that Secretary of State Hillirod Clinton wouldn’t necessarily testify as scheduled, and that State, “may not decide to give the actual report to Congress.”

Two days later, Hillary’s people declared she had caught the stomach flu, become dehydrated, fainted, hit her head, sustained a concussion, and must work at home fer a week. The poor thing jist wouldn’t be up ta sittin’ in a witness chair — her brains in a blender — Jell-O.

Meanwhile, libs have declared the whole story over. All the lefty blogs have announced: “Rice withdrawal marks end of Benghazi scandal.” The Regime henchmen did throw wannabe Secretary of State Susan Rice overboard on Dec. 13, after she had served Obama’s purpose, providing a three-month-long distraction from the central question: What was Obama doing during the seven-hour attack, while members of the Regime watched four Americans die via real-time video transmission? While orders were given to “stand down,” to not come to the Ambassador’s aid, and while, unbelievably — as CBS reports — not a single bullet was fired in defense of the compound by security?

Hearings or no hearings, report or no report, Hillary or no Hillary, there’s only one question: Where was Obama during the horror of Sept. 11, 2012? Was he asleep? Was he disengaged? Was he unavailable? Unreachable? Hiding? Partying? Golfing?

The filmmaker is in jail, Susan Rice has fallen on her broom, and presently only a few are asking: Jist where was the Liar-in-Chief?
