woman, er... terrorist group..."
(Reuters) - Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.Wait a minute. The Obama administration had real time intelligence that U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens is under attack by a large group of organised terrorists... yet what do they do?
The brief emails also show how U.S. diplomats described the attack, even as it was still under way, to Washington.
Administration spokesmen, including White House spokesman Jay Carney, citing an unclassified assessment prepared by the CIA, maintained for days that the attacks likely were a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim film.You mean that amateurish 14 minute Youtube video, right Jay? But why the clumsy White House sleight of hand, you might ask?
Vice President Joe Biden claimed that the administration wasn't aware of requests for more security in Libya before the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi during Thursday night's debate, contradicting two State Department officials and the former head of diplomatic security in Libya.Yup... this one's squarely on the Car-Salesman-in-Chief and his inept entourage...
"Look for the State Department to continue to stonewall this request, and resist release of the document until after the election. Its contents will be just too damaging. In effect, the country will be able to see Hillary Clinton's signature on the document that served as Ambassador Chris Stevens's death warrant."The lies just come so easily.
The real question is... will Obama & Company get away with it? With the specific collusion of their many friends in the MSM and the apathy of the electorate in general, they just might.
You DO get the kind of government you deserve.
