Benghazi And Political Incentives.

The hearings last week about Benghazi have put politicians, and the witnesses who were on the ground, on opposite ends of the truth. This shouldn’t surprise anyone who understands what a politician values the most, which is his own political power. I wrote a post two days after the Benghazi attack titled, Real Analysis About Middle East Insurgency at, in which the truth about the attack was known within 24 hours. The way the administration lied about what happened in the weeks following  the incident is standard operating procedure for 99% of politicians and bureaucrats.


In a post titled, Mises “Human Action” Explains Lies About Libya, written two weeks before the last election, I talk about how to analyze  political decisions in general, and the Benghazi situation in particular through the lens of “Human Action”. Here are a few excerpts from the post that are as true today as they were seven months ago. (more…)’s Brandon Webb Talks About The Heroes In Benghazi.

Brandon Webb most recent post on, What Went Right In Benghazi, Libya: A Story Of American Heroism, tells of the heroism of SEALS Glen Doherty and Ty Woods. This is what we should be talking about instead of a political coverup.

Read this commentary about Benghazi by former SEAL Pete Sobell in an article on The Blaze titled, Benghazi: What Really Maters.

Sofrep stands for special operations forces report. Brandon Webb is a former Navy Seal sniper and has a lot of knowledge and access to inside information about the situations going down in the Middle East this week. Read the article “Initial Reports from Benghazi…”, and this article “Stoking the Flames of Insurgencyf Insurgency” for a perspective that not many americans have.
