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.



Crowley to Axelrod: Obama Never Said Benghazi Attack Was 'Act of Terror
Breitbart ^ | 17 Oct 2012, 3:44 AM PDT | Tony Lee
Crowley to Axelrod: Obama Never Said Benghazi Attack Was 'Act of Terror'
On CNN's "State of the Union" on September 30, Candy Crowley insisted David Axelrod, President Barack Obama's chief strategist, was wrong when Axelrod tried to claim President Barack Obama called the Benghazi attack "an act of terror" on the day after.
"First, they said it was not planned, it was part of this tape," Crowley said when Axelrod tried to spin her.
This was Crowley the journalist, unlike the pro-Obama advocate who moderated Tuesday's debate between Obama and Mitt Romney and interjected herself into an argument between Obama and Romney on the exact same issue -- and took Obama's side.
During the debate, Crowley affirmed Obama's assertion that he referred to the Benghazi attacks as acts of terror on the day after.
After Romney correctly said it took Obama 14 days before Obama said the the Benghazi attacks were acts of terror, Crowley took Obama's side -- to an ovation from the town hall audience -- and she proclaimed Obama had indeed claimed the Benghazi attacks were acts of terror the day after the attacks in the White House Rose Garden.
On September 12, the day after the attacks, Obama did say the words "acts of terror" but he was not referring to the attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.
Crowley knew that on September 30 and she conceded it again hours after the debate when she went on CNN and said while Romney "was right in the main, but he just chose the wrong word." But the damage had already been done.
With Obama's reelection on the line, Crowley seemed to have conveniently forgotten the facts she knew two weeks before when she grilled Axelrod in a way she should have Obama.

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.

Obama's actions since the attack and the cover-up lies that have been and still are being floated as excuses for Obama....prove beyond all doubt that Obama cares more about fund raising and playing golf than he does about national security.

His first priority, his sworn duty is to PROTECT THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES. He has done a miserable job of it, has shown his preference for personal gain over protecting the nation and its embassy staffs, has lied repeatedly about the cause of the attack...and shows no remorse regarding his negligence of duty.

The above, by itself is enough to make any sane American citizen want to kick his sorry ass down the road. But we still have the Obamabots, the leeches, the professional voters, the Kool-Aid drinking worshipers of Mr. Cool and the died-in-the-wool racists that will vote for him regardless of what he does between now and November.

Lie.

Obama held FBI off for three weeks.

Then they were in for 12 hours.

It is not a lie that these were the first words she said about the question on Meet the Press. The previouis topic was on the general unrest in the Arab world but when they got specific on Benghazi she said.....well you have the quote and have the link to the entire transcript.

Furthermore from your link:

"You should not assume that all we could do or have been doing is restricted solely to Benghazi," Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters in Washington. "There are a variety of other places in country and outside the country where relevant things could be done and have been done. This is a matter that's been under active investigation almost since the time of the incident and I'm satisfied with the progress that we have made."

Haha, in other word Mittens 47%! Right?

How come you guys never provide the actual quotes of the lies? Or a link to the transcripts where he lied? Well really I don't wonder at all. I know it's because they don't exist. Mittens ain't got nothing but extrapolated false narratives and his lap dogs eat it up.
