NYT Editorial: Rahm Emmanuel's Delay of the Real Facts of the McDonald Shooting Was a Cover-Up to Guarantee His Safe Re-Election

Fair enough.

Now explain to me how you assholes have such a rough intellectual time of it when you pretend to try to understand the Benghazi "YouTube" video cover-up?

Seems pretty simple -- just as in Emmanuel's case, a politically difficult event happened on his watch, so he tried to delay the real facts from coming out until after an election.

Where is your brain crapping out in this easy to follow logic, fellas?

So the New York Times seems to understand that this is a cover-up -- they let a guy post his opinion on their op-ed pages. (Though note, it's not the NYT's official editorial position.) can't wait for the same editorial on Benghazi.

After the cover-up, of course, must come the ad-hoc blue-ribbon commission to determine why the people empanelling the commission ordered the cover-up. I expect that to go the way of most such "Lemme Investigate My Own Wrongdoing" inquiries.

On Tuesday, Emanuel will seek to quell some of the growing chorus of criticism by announcing a task force his administration says "will review the system of accountability, oversight and training that is currently in place for Chicago's police officers," according to a brief news release issued late Monday.

"And definitely not the Mayor," the press release should have made clear.

Rahm Emmanuel has wasted little time in firing the chief of police for the corruption that he himself probably ordered.

Notice he did this not on Friday but on a Tuesday -- he wants this news out there.

"Now is the time for fresh eyes and leadership," Emanuel said at the news conference.

Apparently he's a fan of Obama's technique of calling for better leadership, while not resigning his leadership position.

I haven't seen it, but Jon Podoretz says the press conference Rahm Emmanuel just gave was "disastrous."
