    Who Is Responsible for Benghazi?



    by Roger L Simon
    November 16, 2012


    Apparently, David Petraeus doesn’t just lie about his private life. He also at least airbrushes the truth when it comes to national security, telling the House Intelligence Committee that he always said Benghazi was a terrorist attack.

    Rep. Peter King – who attended both Petraeus’ testimony Friday and the former DCIA’s briefing to lawmakers on Sept. 14 — has a more jaundiced view:

    Petraeus’ testimony both challenges the Obama administration’s repeated claims that the attack was a “spontaneous” protest over an anti-Islam video, and according to King conflicts with his own briefing to lawmakers on Sept. 14. Sources have said Petraeus, in that briefing, also described the attack as a protest that spun out of control.

    “His testimony today was that from the start, he had told us that this was a terrorist attack,” King said, adding that he told Petraeus he had a “different recollection.”

    But never mind the self-serving shifting sands of the increasingly slimy general. The lede from the same Fox story is the important news:

    Former CIA Director David Petraeus testified in a closed-door hearing Friday morning that his agency determined immediately after the Sept. 11 Libya attack that “Al-Qaeda involvement” was suspected — but the line was taken out in the final version circulated to administration officials, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed.

    There’s your smoking gun, as the saying goes. Someone, or ones, somewhere redacted that crucial line.

    Who?

    Couldn't it be both, a spontaneous riot used as cover by terrorist plotters waiting to take advantage of chaos?

    this administration is getting more brazen every day with their lying. They know that in reality nobody is going to do anything about it.

    Do anything about what? It's not like you can point to a crime, like when Reagan sold arms to Iran and gave the money to the terrorist contras.
