The most effective administration response would have been full and immediate
disclosure. It should not be partisan, one could easily imagine Democrat and
Republican on either side. With the WH going dark and Jay Carney using double
speak to explain "stylistic" changes and 12 iterations, they are begging
to keep this in the public eye. It's about more than the tragic event in
Benghazi, it has serious implications for Hillary Clinton's bid for the
Just answer the questions! Who told Susan Rice to lie about the attack on 5
different Sunday talk shows telling us it was that darned video that no one saw?
Who told the military to "stand down" when Ambassador Stevens begged for
help? Why did the Department of State demote one of the whistle blowers for
telling his eye witness account of the events of the attacks? What are you
hiding, Hillary and Barrack? Just come clean if as you both say this is nothing
but a political side show! Just answer the questions!
All this stuff might not make President Obama the worst President ever, but I
sure hope that any rational person can see and admit that Obama and his cronies
are nothing more than pipe hitting politicians who are out for themselves before
anyone else. Perhaps the glamor, glitz, hope, change, transformational,
smartest man ever President, ect. that has been said of Obama will now be seen
for what it really is. Belief without substance.
As usual, the Democrats and Liberals are playing the "artful dodger". By
accusing the Republicans of engaging in a "political sideshow", they are
ignoring the fact that they instigated it in the first place. How?
By leaving in doubt whether or not they were engaged in a strategy to enhance
Obama's chances for re-election by ignoring the facts surrounding Benghazi.
If they had been forthright from the beginning, releasing the pertinent facts
instead of their own politically motivated "video" sideshow, things
would be different for them now. But--as in that Oliver Twist
episode--they tried picking the electorate's pockets, and when the attempt
was noticed, are now pursuing the Republicans relentlessly, calling foul!
I heard that General Carter Ham, Africom Commander was prevented on orders from
the Sec of Defense from sending assistance. I know General Ham retired a year
earlier than the normal rotation for change of command. General Ham said
publically that the military was never directed to provide assistance, not that
they didn't try to provide assistance. Why hasn't congress called
retired General Ham to testify is something that I don't understand. Their
is definitely a huge cover up by the administration still going on without
justice for those who died, instead its just politics. Scooter Libby went to
prison for supposedly "outing" the known CIA operative and no one died,
so who is going to prison for this where we lost 4 brave Americans?
Wow. What a hack job by the AP. Listen to the testimony of the people on the
ground--it's chilling stuff. And the testimony directly contradicts what
the editorialists at the AP write in this story. Funny how the AP continues to
be the propaganda arm of the Obama team, even after its reporter's phone
records were hijacked.
it keeps coming back because americans are tired of being lied to.
AP reports that Rice described the attack as a "horrific incident where some
mob was hijacked, ultimately, by a handful of extremists."That's a pretty generous description of Rice's talking points, with
lots of wiggle room for Rice and the administration to continue claiming they
were calling it terrorism.Let's try out her actual comments
from the Sunday talk shows: "But our current best assessment, based on the
information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it
was a spontaneous — not a premeditated — response to what had
transpired in Cairo."Not only lies, but blatant lies and known
lies. They took all potential talking points, removed those that were true,
emphasized as "fact" those that were already known to be untrue, and
asserted them as their best information to date. It requires either the willing
suspension of disbelief, or suggests we have the most incompetent intelligence
community in the world. The WH press should start referring to Jay Carney as
Benghazi Bob.Truly dispicable, and stunning to me that so many still
hold fast that the administration never lied to our country. I guess blindness
is not easily cured.
