    If Obama understood that the attack in Benghazi was an act of Terror unrelated to the movie, why did he spend 2 weeks claiming it was a direct result of the movie? Why did he send his Ambassador to the UN to say specifically it was caused by the movie?

    Where were his briefings from the Intel agencies and the State Department all of whom have stated then knew right away it was a terrorist attack unrelated to the movie?

    If the State Department knew it was a terror attack unrelated to the Movie why did they allow the UN Ambassador to say it was connected to the movie?

    He didn't. Was it when you were a Mormon that you learned that lying is a good thing?

    Well, it isn't.

    Romney will make sure it all comes out Monday night. Stay tuned. Those are the question the whole lot of them have been side-stepping. Fund raising and golf are Obama's priorities.

    Biden told the nation it was an intelligence failure.

    But they knew it was a terror attack.

    Doesn't hold water.

    He made an agreement with the Organization of Islamic Countries not to say anything bad about muslims. that's why he refused to call Lybia a terrorist attack until he was forced to, and why he still refuses to call Ft Hood and the Arkansas recruiter killing terrorist attacks. He's cluless and ignorant and has no business being in office.

    Read all about it...Obama spins and lies!!!!


    Time line of lies!

    Obama's Benghazi Lies - Home

    Destroys Obama's case. It wasn't about a fucking terrorist attack, BUT the protest over our freedom of speech.

    On the 13th he was talking about the protest when he said terrorized.

    Susan Rice said on the 16th that this wasn't a pre-planned attack. LIES

    On the 18th Obama went on the letterman show and blamed our first amendment for the attack. LIES!!!

    If the terrorized was supposed to mean a terrorist attack. Well, Obama sure inserted his foot in his ass.

    Clinton on the 21st was the first to say it was a Terrorist attack. SPIN!

    Obama on the view on the 25th said it was about the fucking video! Spin some more!!!

    Biden blatantly lied about Chris Stevens wanting more Security
    The Fact Checker


    “We weren’t told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security.”

    — Biden, speaking of the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya

    Biden’s bold statement was directly contradicted by State Department officials just this week, in testimony before a congressional panel and in unclassified cables released by a congressional committee.

    “All of us at post were in sync that we wanted these resources,” said Eric Nordstrom, the top regional security officer in Libya earlier this year. A Utah national guardsman who led a security team, Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, said: “We felt great frustration that those requests were ignored or just never met.”

    @ 5:00-6:20 you can hear the context in which he mentioned terrorism, Romney was correct in his assertation as, in context, Obama was referring to terrorism in general and not specifically the attack
    ====

    Candy wasn't even right here as Obama said "terror" in the context of the protest.

    State Department just released a bunch of documents. Chris Stevens had been begging for months for more security and the State Department offical said they felt like a "broken record" in denying the requests. Hilary wanted to Normalize relations in Benghazi.. I guess they're normal now but not nominal. huh?

    GREGORY: Well, let’s talk-- talk about-- well, you talked about this as spontaneous. Can you say definitively that the attacks on-- on our consulate in Libya that killed ambassador Stevens and others there security personnel, that was spontaneous, was it a planned attack? Was there a terrorist element to it?

    MS. RICE: Well, let us-- let me tell you the-- the best information we have at present. First of all, there’s an FBI investigation which is ongoing. And we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. But putting together the best information that we have available to us today our current assessment is that what happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo, almost a copycat of-- of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. What we think then transpired in Benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. They came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are readily available in post revolutionary Libya. And it escalated into a much more violent episode. Obviously, that’s-- that’s our best judgment now. We’ll await the results of the investigation. And the president has been very clear--we’ll work with the Libyan authorities to bring those responsible to justice.
