How can we tell what's true?

What if the Obama administration did know about the Fast and Furious scandal?

What if the administration did know the truth about what happened in Benghazi, Libya, but failed to act and rather decided to spin it to coincide with the campaign rhetoric that al-Qaida was on its heels and the tides of war were receding?

What if the administration did know the IRS was targeting conservative groups, hoping to intimidate them and anyone else who decided to have a conservative voice, especially during an election?

What if the administration did know the Department of Justice was targeting journalists by tapping their phones and watching their emails, especially James Rosen with Fox News, a conservative media outlet?

What if the administration did know that millions of Americans would lose their insurance because of Obamacare but said unequivocally during the campaign that they wouldn’t? What if they did know that, because of Obamacare, premiums would actually go up, not down, but decided to market it the way they did to win an election and to get the law passed?

What if the administration did know that the healthcare.gov website was nowhere near ready for launch on Oct. 1 – not only not allowing people to sign up, but also subjecting millions of Americans to security risks? What if they decided to go ahead with the launch anyway because to do otherwise would be an admission that conservatives, who wanted to delay or even repeal the law, were right all along during the government shutdown? What if they have known all along that Obamacare is not about health care but rather about redistribution of wealth and government control of our lives?

What if none of this is true? What if all of it is? Truth is, we don’t know what is true regarding this administration.
