However, much of that message was ruined by the fact that Lyndon B. Johnson abused power as much as Nixon did. Because Nixon is still a convenient whipping boy for the left, we never hear about LBJ's sins.
Twenty years before Watergate, Nixon was engaged in a brutal battle with the Stalinist left of the 1950s. Watergate "gave the left a sword," as Nixon famously said. The Washington Post assaulted the Nixon presidency in collusion with Mark Felt (Deep Throat), who hated Nixon for passing him up for FBI director.
Watergate was therefore a major battle in the long war between the radical left and mainstream America.
Like Watergate, Benghazi has several layers. But the most revealing one is the active collusion between this administration and Al Qaida.
Al Qaida is a Saudi-inspired and Saudi-funded terror gang. Almost all of the terrorists on 9/11 were Saudis. Those facts are always covered up, but they are crucial to understanding the Jihad War.
In Benghazi we ran arms from Libya to Al Qaida rebels in Syria. The Saudis are funding that rebellion.
There's that Saudi link again.
In Egypt we backed the Muslim Brotherhood against Hosni Mubarak, who kept the peace treaty with Israel for 30 years. Thirty years of peace in the Middle East is a huge achievement. The Muslim Brotherhood assassinated Anwar Sadat the peacemaker, one of the rare Arab moderates who saw the light. Today we are in league with those who assassinated Anwar Sadat. For shame.
Today Egypt is starving, and the people hate the new regime.
The Saudis are naturally on the side of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood because they share the Sunni war theology.
So the Saudis have won again, with Obama acting as their American errand boy.
In Libya, we again made common cause with Sunni radicals against Muammar Gadaffi, a real nutcase, but a man who was able to run Libya's tribal federation for years. Gadaffi had turned over his nuclear program to the George W. Bush Administration. We still betrayed him to support his enemies, and Libya is in a civil war even now.
Again, the Muslim radicals won.
The bottom line is that Obama has consistently supported the most radical Muslim elements in the Middle East.
But we never supported the young people of the democratic Green Revolution against the vicious mullah regime in Iran. When Obama first met Benyamin Netanyahu he acted like an abusive bully.
Obama only bows down to Third World reactionaries.
That is consistent with his extreme leftist ideology. It also fits the worldwide left-Muslim alliance that has made Israel and the U.S. the targets of the most vicious hate campaign since World War II. Check MEMRI.org if you doubt it.
Obama may not be committing technical treason.
But he is a revolutionary, and so are all his friends.
