Washington Post Author Compares Benghazi To Ferguson….

Washington Post author Richard Cohen is trying -miserably- to construct an analogy of political rushing to judgment surrounding Benghazi Libya and Ferguson Missouri. “Trying” is obviously the operative word.


[Richard Cohen] …Ferguson has become the liberal Benghazi. It is more of a cause than a place, more of an ideological statement than an incident. Ferguson was not the racist murder it was thought to be, and Benghazi was not an incident in which the Obama administration’s incompetence or timidity allowed four Americans to die. The facts argue otherwise. (link)

Wordsmithing analogies require some level of similarity. Toward that end only the most inane of liberal minds could possibly conceive of a proposition claiming the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty – have any comparison to a Ferguson street thug attacking a police officer; yet Cohen tries.

So in an effort to actually provide Cohen with similarity allow me to show what was, factually, similar in both instances.


Cohen’s efforts focus on comparing the aftermath, but what Cohen misses entirely is the concept of truth. While the police in Ferguson might have made some missteps in presenting the fullest evolution of immediately known information -I would argue to an unwilling audience- there is simply no comparison to the intentional deception delivered by Team Clinton in the Benghazi aftermath.

Unlike the U.S. State Department, the CIA apparatus and the White House, the Ferguson police department did not lie, nor did they make any efforts to lie. The Ferguson police were simply trying to provide the facts amid a media frenzy set to sell a narrative despite those facts.

Hillary Clinton, the State Department and the White House were intentionally constructing wholesale NONSENSE out of thin air. Ferguson police were trying to present the facts of a deadly shooting. The media audience for the former was aligned to sell the NONSENSE because it fit the preferred liberal narrative; the media audience for the latter were aligned to dismiss the truth of the Ferguson shooting because it did not align with the liberal narrative.

The author’s newspaper, The Washington Post, was at the forefront in selling both the lies that were presented by the Clinton State Department, and the lies that were constructed absent of the facts in the Ferguson shooting. That is the similarity.

The Washington Post was aligned to sell lies in both examples.

Right there, Mr. Cohen, there is your analogy.

    very good, SD.
    the convenient revising of the facts.
    and fabricating a patchwork “tapestry” (isn’t that one of their words?) of disinformation steeped in self-righteousness.
    trying hard either to elevate Ferguson or to downgrade Benghazi.
    or both.

    Corrupt, filthy liars who are believed by many. I know many people who, despite being fairly decent people, get their news only from ABC, NBC, CBS, or the Wash Post. They believe that obama has done nothing wrong, that hillary is a good choice for President, and ISrael is an occupying force. I can hardly speak with them these days, as they are so delusional. Either that, or they are evil…

  3. Only things that links the two are the muslim agitators and the narrative (lies) out of the white house to push an agenda.

      US government attempts to manipulate violent low IQ segment of population for political purposes. Violence and arson ensue.

    The late Samuel Francis used to say Richard Cohen of the Washington Post was his favorite columnist. Why? Cohen could always be relied on to give the standard liberal position on whatever is in the news at a given moment.

    True, true but the left is going all splody head over it, so it has ONE saving grace 🙂

    Sure…Cohen is absolutely right. Because, just like Benghazi, during the immediate aftermath of Brown being shot and leaving the body lying in the street for 17 hours (uncovered), we were all clamoring for the wherabouts of the Police Chief…who was flying to St. Louis for a fund-raiser. :/Sarc-Off.
