Obama administration knew within 24 hours embassy attacks were Al Qaeda; Willfully lied to the American people for 2 weeks.
This is officially moving into scandal territory. These will certainly be some big bumps in the road. Remember what I said, Obama believes we are all stupid. That we will believe anything they tell us and the media won’t hold them accountable. In this case, the media helped in the cover up. It is truly disgusting. Yesterday, the President went before the UN. Instead of denouncing terrorism, he spoke more about a video he KNEW had nothing to do with that attacks.
This president and his surrogates have no problem using terms like “war on women” because I don’t want to pay for a 30 year old activists birth control but can’t call an act of terrorism, well terrorism? The Presidents of Libya and Egypt have both said the video was irrelevant. The diary of Chris Stevens CNN recovered highlights his concerns with Al Qaeda’s rising influence, threat level and that HE was a target. His local security showed the terrorists where he was hiding. They had automatic weapons and RPG’s. The only person arrested to my knowledge was the man who made the video in question. Freedom of speech – no. Freedom to invade our embassy, kill our ambassador and two ex-seals, apparently so.
In the past two weeks, the man asking to be re-elected President has knowingly lied to the American people, apologized for American values and has utterly failed to defend Americans and our values. But hey, he was on Letterman and he was (self-described) ‘eye candy’ while on the View. The media is complicit in all of this. The fourth estate has failed you. HE HAS FAILED YOU.
It should be the biggest story in the world, and if the incumbent President was a Republican, you can bet your bottom YouTube video that it would be: Eli Lake of the Daily Beast reports that “Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers.”
Three separate sources confirmed to Lake that “early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al-Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.” The Libyans have been saying that all along, with an increasingly exasperated President Mohammed Magarief insisting once again, during an NBC News interview aired Wednesday, that the Benghazi attack was “a preplanned act of terrorism directed at American citizens,” conceived months ago but delayed to coincide with the September 11 anniversary.
There is no way to spin this, no way to pretty it up, no way to interpret it through any lens that would make Obama and his team look better. They willfully, aggressively, repeatedly lied to the American people about events in Benghazi. As Lake points out, as recently as last Sunday, Obama adviser Robert Gibbs claimed that the Administration narrative was still evolving due to new information.
And U.N. ambassador Susan Rice was marched onto every TV show in America to insist That Damned Video was the cause of all the “spontaneous” violence. When specifically asked about the Benghazi attack on Fox News, Rice stated, “This was not a pre-planned, pre-meditated attack. What happened initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video. People gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent. People with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons – which, unfortunately, are quite common in post-revolutionary Libya – and that then spun out of control.”
That was a false statement. The Administration knew it was a false statement. What are we going to get from Obama apologists now – a load of bunk about how Susan Rice is an out-of-control loose cannon who speaks for no one but herself? How empty does that chair in the Oval Office have to get?
More reporting from Breitbart:
Every day it becomes more and more obvious that fearing headlines that screamed “Al-Qaeda Assassinates American Ambassador,” the Obama administration and the media colluded to push the narrative about a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video…
As a result, thus far, the Obama Administration has gotten away with outright lies, likely security lapses that proved fatal, and the trotting out of our UN Ambassador to look Americans and the media in the eye and say what she and the government knew wasn’t true.
