Throughout the past week, the media has been focused almost completely on the ongoing developments of Hurricane Sandy, which has already taken the lives of at least 62 people and caused tens of billions of dollars in damage, according to reports.
But nonstop coverage of this "perfect storm" has
also conveniently diverted attention away from several perfect political
storms in the White House, including the infamous Benghazi scandal and the
"Fast and Furious" gun-smuggling operation, both of which just so happen to
have the potential, albeit the very small potential, to have key Obama
administration players charged with war crimes.
What will happen in the meantime with the Obama
administration and its role in
smuggling firearms to Mexican drug cartels?
And yet at the same time, many news sources have
become so preoccupied with storm-related issues that the Obama
administration's role in these various scandals is barely even on their
radars anymore, if it ever even was in the first place.
Particularly in the internet realm, there is
much talk about bringing all the grim details of the scandals to bear before
the election, despite the Obama administration's clear intention of sweeping
them under the rug until after the election.
