ANALYSIS/OPINION:

America, you cannot say you were not warned.

If eight years of a Clinton presidency were not enough to teach you about the slow-rolling train wreck soap opera of dazzling indifference, monumental selfishness, convoluted lies and shameless cover-ups, then just maybe you deserve to live with yet another monstrous mistake.

Lady Hillary Clinton's orchestration of a sprawling and fantastically dishonest cover-up of the terrorist attack on her State Department post in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11 is a clear reminder of just how totally indifferent the Clintons are when it comes to their responsibility to the voters they serve, the people they command and the country they represent.

It is only when - due to their own ineptitude and recklessness - they find their own personal fannies in a pinch that they become truly engaged. And then they become supreme maestros of fantastic cover-ups designed to skirt (no pun intended, Bubba) their own responsibility and lay waste to anyone and everyone who dares to pursue the truth or question the Clintons or their motives.

Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission in Tripoli at the time of the organized terrorist attack in Benghazi, watched in horror as the Clinton machine kicked into hyperspeed to whitewash the attack in which four Americans were killed.

"My jaw hit the floor as I watched this," Mr. Hicks told House investigators, describing U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice's wall-to-wall appearances on Sunday political shows.

"I have been a professional diplomat for 22 years," he said. "I have never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career, as on that day."

Ms. Rice was simply setting up mirrors and fanning the diversionary smoke set ablaze by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who immediately dismissed the attacks as some sort of unforeseeable, instantaneous reaction to some obscure anti-Muslim Internet video that nobody had ever heard of - at least not until Secretary Clinton made it instantly famous around the globe by blaming it for Benghazi.

By promoting that ridiculous canard, Mrs. Clinton sentenced untold numbers of people around the world to death or injury and sparked protests that swept the globe. All in direct response to her knowingly fabricated claim.

As always with the Clintons, anything to get out of a jam. Lie till you die.

Another senior officer, writing in an email to colleagues, said, "I think Rice was off the reservation on this one." (Apologies to Elizabeth Warren, aka "Pocahontas.")

"Off the reservation on five networks!" chimed in a colleague in the press department.

This is just how the crooked Clintons have always operated and will operate evermore if they are allowed back into the White House.
