Justice Prevails in Phoenix: What About Washington, D.C.?

By John W. Lillpop

May 8 was a memorable day across America for stories about murder and justice and for the pursuit of justice.

On the one hand, consummate liar and ruthless killer Jody Arias was convicted for the premeditated, gruesome murder of Travis Alexander, a romantic figure in her life until her gun and knife ended Alexander’s romantic capabilities and life, all in one fell swoop.

Justice prevailed in Phoenix; thus, Arias faces the prospect of execution or, if she is lucky, life in prison with no chance for parole.

While common sense and justice were being meted out in Phoenix, in Washington, D.C. a hearing was being held in the US House of Representatives to discuss the murder of four American diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, and the action (or inaction) taken by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and her boss, the community organizer posing as President.

The Benghazi hearing featured three prominent, lifetime career professionals from the State Department who told Congress and the American people facts about the Benghazi slaughter which contradicted the narratives espoused by the Obama administration in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attack and continuing for weeks.

UN Ambassador Susan Rice was exposed as little more than a lower-level campaign worker working feverishly to keep the truth from coming out, lest the re-election bid of President Obama be negatively impacted.

The “Whistle Blower” testimony left little or no doubt as to the lack of veracity associated with Hillary Clinton’s testimony before Congress and raised new questions about President Obama’s role in the cover-up of the crime which cost four Americans their lives.

At this point, it appears as though the system of justice has worked in Phoenix, which means that Jody Arias will probably die at the hands of the law in Arizona.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the prospects for justice in the Benghazi murders. That is because Democrat politicians seem more concerned with  the political viability of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama than with justice for Ambassador Stevens and the other murdered diplomats in Libya.

Shame on America and the Democrats if equal justice under the law is usurped by partisan politics!
