    Benghazi: Four Americans Died, Obama Lied, And The Press Complied

    Benghazi: Four Americans Died, Obama Lied, And The Press Complied - Forbes





    The recent fiasco in Libya and the manner in which President Obama’s media minions have abetted his deception provides an epitaph for the soon to be demised Obama administration:

    Four Americans died. Obama lied. The press complied.

    Republicans have been trying to highlight the terrorist attack on our Libyan embassy for weeks, but recognizing how damaging this episode was to Obama’s credibility, media coverage has been subdued. Who requested what security and when is important, but these things always appear obvious in hindsight.

    Much more telling is the way our hyper-partisan press ignored how the administration initially attributed Benghazi to some YouTube video nobody watched. This was a fiction the press corps condoned. It took Team Obama two weeks before acknowledging that it was a well orchestrated terrorist attack.

    Blaming “The Innocence of Muslims,” yielded Obama an alibi. His foreign policy failings could be excused. For a president prone to apologizing to Muslims, this was perfect: it was America’s fault. If only those pesky Christians back home would behave, peace would come to the Islamic World.

    Our UN ambassador Susan Rice repeatedly attributed the attack to a spontaneous protest erupting in response to the “heinous” film. Obama mentioned the movie six times in his own speech to the UN. He did this despite credible proof there had not been any protest. Libyan officials had already confirmed it as terrorism. Our enemies conducted a coordinated assault against a lightly guarded consulate on September 11th.

    CIA in Libya Told D.C. Within 24 Hours Benghazi Was Not Spontaneous Response to Video
    October 19, 2012 WASHINGTON (AP) — Sensing a moment of political vulnerability on national security, Republicans pounced Friday on disclosures that President Barack Obama's administration could have suspected early on that militants, not angry protesters, launched the attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya.

    It will be interesting to hear the spin at tonight's debate:

    1. It is unpatriotic to mention this for political gain;

    2. It was intemperate to jump to conclusions right after the attack;

    3. We still don't have all the facts;

    4. We should have an investigation after the election;

    5. It is unpatriotic to mention this for political gain.....
