Where Are the Sacrificial Lambs?

The news leaking out is that Charlene Lamb, a Secretary of State underling responsible for the botched security at Benghazi, after an administrative leave of full pay, is being given a new Regional Security Position in the State Department to be assigned to Canada. No wonder the Canadians have had it with us over are delay in the Keystone XL approval process; one can only hope this person does not have any responsibilities to provide security as her performance in Benghazi suggests although she may be a loyal administration player, she is incompetent. One can only hope the hush money is not excessive, but even a penny clearly indicates accountability does not exist in the Obama administration, not now and certainly not on 9/11/2012. 
No Sacrificial Lambs Only Rewarded Ones
We all know the stories of the sacrificial lambs
Not on the altar of faith but the altar of covering up a sham
Not so in the case of a certain  Lamb named Charlene
Cited for security failings at the Benghazi consulate attack scene
While four Americans died, their families to question a bogus video and left to greave
This Lamb was not punished or sacrificed, only put on administrative leave
No punishment, no loss of pay or job, no demerits, no demotion
While four Americans were butchered paying the ultimate devotion
No, the news breaking would appear this Lamb is receiving a promotion
No wonder, as finally the facts delayed trickle in, a sense of outrage commotion
Regional security in Canada outside the House’s subpoena reach
Another failed chance for this Administration accountability to teach
Maybe not a great promotion but a silence reward
To prevent the Benghazi Blame to Hillary point toward.
