Leaked State Department emails prove Obama knew it had nothing to do with any Video. We knew it was a terrorist attack, 2hrs after it started.
The latest bomb to drop on Obama’s list of debate “factual inaccuracies” is what he knew, and when, during the hours long terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi and embassy in Tripoli. The State Department was e-mailing about the attack on the consulate within two hours of the beginning, and discussing the terrorists who they thought were behind it. Those e-mails went directly to the Situation Room of the White House. That’s where Obama receives military and security intel. We also had a terror group, Ansar al-Sharia, claiming credit for it within two hours.
Seven hours this attack lasted. Two of the four Americans were killed in the final hours. There was plenty of time to take action to save some of our people. And yet, in the second debate, Obama was righteously indignant when he told Governor Romney “If you think that I would have done nothing, let Americans die, that is offensive.”
Sadly, that’s exactly what happened.
The White House was also watching it unfold on video. We had a drone in the sky over the Benghazi consulate at the time. There was a live video feed.
All the e-mails from the CIA station chief, the e-mails from the State Department and the video which was being seen from the drone? None of that made any mention of “earlier protests.” The e-mails didn’t say, “By the way, there was a protest going on out here earlier today about some You Tube video.
It’s gotten out of hand.” There was no mention of a protest in any of the communications. Just terrorism.
The Obama Administration’s story now seems to be “Well, there’s so many e-mails coming in from so many outposts all over the world. It’s impossible to sift through these things immediately and inform the president.” They’re attempting to establish plausible deniability by virtue of ignorance. “He couldn’t have known!” Somebody did, and whoever knew either didn’t think it was that big a deal, or is lying through their teeth. Those are the only two explanations possible. Well, there is also gross incompetence on behalf of Obama. Or does saying that make me a racist?
Large groups of heavily armed men, all wearing the same shirts and waving the same flags, do not “spontaneously” erupt, without days of prep work.
However, they cannot maintain the narrative that Obama destroyed Al Qaeda single-handedly when he killed Bin Laden, if we find out Al Qaeda connected terrorist organizations are still striking at us on the Anniversary of 9-11.
It was also important that America somehow be responsible. The main thrust of our current administration’s foreign policy seems to be American Guilt. Which explains why Obama and his various mouthpieces in the media continued to excoriate a video no one had ever seen (made in America, dontcha know), as the ACTUAL cause of those nice people in Egypt and Libya expressing their personal angst by raping and murdering Americans, then dragging their bodies through the streets.
Don’t Democrats ever get tired of covering for this stumbling buffoon we have to call President?
