America is the home of the cover-up. It has become an art form. When scandal hits, the three cardinal rules are: Admit nothing, deny everything and demand proof. The present administration and its minions have taken artful dodging to another level. They are masters of the craft using deception, obfuscation, buck-passing and shifting attention from the holes in their story.
In recent posts, I’ve focused on one of the scandals now before the American people—Benghazi. Four died in service to their country when they were sent on a doomed mission. That is a fact. The truth of what happened and why has been much harder to gather.
My purpose is not to pile on the folks in charge for their alleged wrong-doings. Yes, evidence seems to indicate that the official explanation from Washington was fiction. Christian leaders, unwittingly or not, have been doing the same for a long time—and getting away with it.
Re: Benghazi, major media in the U.S. is reporting that initial info sent up the chain of command was “scrubbed.” In a series of emails between those involved in the president’s re-election and political-minded operatives in the State Department, references to “terrorism” or the al-Qaeda-related group responsible for the attack were deleted. Talking points eventually ended up with those in the government’s executive branch with access to the cameras and microphones.
Recently, emails were released to investigators. However, the surrendered communications do not cover the first 67 hours after reports of the attack hit Washington. Even so, what was given to Congress clearly shows a scenario was crafted that became the fiction our leaders told the public for a week.
In Lifesaver, I detailed how the PTR or Pre-tribulation Rapture storyline has been cleverly-crafted and “scrubbed” since it originated in the first part of the 19th century. Jesus offered facts when he said, “But before all these things, they will lay hands on you and persecute you.” (Luke 21:12) What we hear from many in our pulpits, Bible schools and Christian media, has “scrubbed” all prophetic references to God’s people under-going a time of global persecution. The official PTR version has evolved over the years. Names and events have disappeared or changed in its revisions. Rest assured the truth will stand. God’s Word will come to pass.
