    When a false narrative collapses, it tends to accelerate on the way down. Just eight days after UN Ambassador Susan Rice went on five Sunday talk shows to insist that the sacking of our consulate in Benghazi and the murder of our ambassador resulted from a protest over a YouTube video that “spun out of control,” only 23% of likely voters buy that argument in Rasmussen’s latest poll. In fact, two-thirds think it was “very likely” a preplanned terrorist attack — as evidence has begun to show:

    Most voters think the recent protests at U.S. embassies in the Middle East were pre-planned and not a reaction to an anti-Islamic video on YouTube. They also believe overwhelmingly that terrorists are likely to have been involved in the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters feel that the recent embassy protests largely have been planned in advance. Just 23% think they were spontaneous reactions to the anti-Islamic video. Nineteen percent (19%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Sixty-seven percent (67%) of military veterans and 54% of those who have not served in uniform agree that the protests mostly have been planned in advance. But there’s a partisan gap as there is on most questions this election year: 79% of Republicans and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party believe the protests were pre-planned, but Democrats are almost evenly divided.

    Eighty-five percent (85%) of all voters believe it is likely that terrorists were involved in the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Libya, with 65% who think it is Very Likely. Just six percent (6%) say terrorist involvement in the ambassador’s murder is not very or Not At All Likely.

    Well thank God...I mean in general people are rather stupid, but at least they are not totally stupid to buy this line of horsehockey.
    Gee...let's see...The White House would have us believe that in the middle of a riot frenzy...suddenly a few dozen guys huddle together and developed a well executed plan using both small and medium armed weaponry ...yeah...this happens all the time.
    Or...it was planned by trained personnel who have near unlimited access to arms and used the small riot to their advantage.

    Hmmm...how will we ever know?...:eusa_hand:

    Obama and his administration knew that the attack on the consulate was a terrorist attack, from day one, but that was not a good thing for his political campaign, so they lied to the American people about it. They still refuse to answer questions about why security was so deficient at that embassy and the consulate.

    Somehow, they have to figure out how to blame it all on Bush, or the Republicans in congress.

    You and Hot Air LIE, of course. Your headline leaves out "spontaneous". Of course they were planned and of course the militia involved was terrorists. The Ambassador was wrong about that, but to say 23% believe the "SIEGES" were unrelated to the video is NUTS and a lie. Pub dupes!!

    I keep saying all of American doesn't want to be "organized". Obama had no idea everyone wouldn't fall for his lies and vote for him.

    I often wonder how those people on Chicago's South side are doing these days, you know after being organized and all. That was a while ago, they should be doing pretty good by now.
