North Korea and Benghazi.

Updated on December 18, 2014

Two different events, with similar analogy.

What is going on between the United States and North Korea, from a Hollywood viewpoint, brings a similar story back, which happened in 2012 in the country of Libya, with a parallel rigmarole.

It was the Benghazi attack that the Fox News Channel and the Congressional Republicans continued to drag it like a "ball and chain" before the American people, saying it was not about a video that denigrated the spiritual Muslim leader Mohammad.

Nevertheless, to make it a political retribution against President Obama and his administration, that issue was still under investigation in the U.S. Congress, with no end in sight.

Yet, if it wasn't a video, every person that has spoken about it, in Congress, on TV, on the radio or anywhere else, has not bee able to pinpoint the rational for the Benghazi attack that has taken the lives of a U.S. Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens and three diplomats, to date.

The media and the political analysts have dobbed it "Benghazi gate" and intend to take it into the 2016 presidential election campaign to subvert Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency; why? Because she happened to be the U.S. Secretary of State at the time.

Now, back to the present, a movie titled "The Interview" has sparked a firestorm, because it involved the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un; and not only that but also his assassination. North Korea has said it was an act of war or cyber war and was determined to destroy Sony pictures of the U.S. electronically for producing that movie.

However, Sony happened to be a Japanese company, but primarily based in the U.S., and so the FBI and other government agencies were on alert, as well as private companies that could be useful in the debacle; and they were working feverishly to prevent North Korea's threat that could be damaging, if not catastrophic, to other industries, like banking, water supplies, electricity grids, commerce, etc., in the United States.

On Benghazi, Susan Rice, the then United States representative to the U.N., had said that the video, admonishing Mohammad, was the cause of the Benghazi attack, and there were Bill O'Reilly, Megyn Kelly and Shaun Hannity, all of Fox News Channel, accusing her of lying to the American people.

In the case of North Korea, a world leader has been a subject of ridicule, to the point of being virtually killed in a movie called "The Interview", and North Korea was angry; hence the hacking of Sony; and with Benghazi, a spiritual leader has been vilified by the use of a video also made in America, and the people in that city, who were Muslims, took the opportunity to attack an American diplomatic enclave, amid demonstrations going on around the world to offset the effects of a video.

Simply put, Susan Rice was right. Like 9/11/2001, Benghazi was an attack similar to it (9/11/2001), and it must be put to rest.

      A very interesting take on two very complex issues. Will there be a Sony gate? only time will tell.
