The most transparent administration in history has been less than forthcoming about President Obama’s activities before, during, and immediately after the terrorist attack in Benghazi.
You remember Benghazi, right? That was where the US ambassador to Libya, an aide, and two brave former Navy SEALs were murdered because, as the administration insisted for weeks on end, of a movie trailer about Mohammed.
FoxNews had a report last week about Benghazi. It’s been picked up by the broadcast networks and the New York Times who are insisting the President come clean about what happened. Sorry about that, we don’t know what came over us.
Here’s the report.
Panetta knew within minutes of the Pentagon finding out about the attack that it was a terrorist attack. Panetta told the President shortly after he found out. Those events happened shortly after the attack started and while it was still going on.
Breitbart has put together a timeline of the days just prior to the Benghazi attack through the following day.
For the five consecutive days prior to and including the day of the attack the President, following his typical schedule, does not attend the daily intelligence briefing. He stops for a “moment of silence” at the White House on the morning of the attack.
That moment of silence is then followed by hours of silence and deadly inaction throughout the attack.
The President was informed of the attack by Panetta, according to Panetta. Panetta then stood by while Susan Rice peddled the lie that a YouTube video was responsible for the “demonstration” that got out of control. Hillary Clinton told the families of the fallen that they would “get” the maker of the video. President Obama went to the United Nations and – what else – apologized to the world for being President of a country where someone would make a vile video like the one that caused the demonstration in Benghazi.
We hope there is a special place in Hell for all of these fools, but especially for Panetta.
In case there was ever any doubt about the President’s priorities September 11th and 12th should put those to rest. An American outpost was attacked by terrorists known to be affiliated with alQaeda, an American ambassador war murdered along with three other Americans, and the President went to a fund raiser in Las Vegas. He was certainly involved in the decision to lie about the nature of the attack because of the ongoing Presidential campaign and his continual assurances that alQaeda was dead (and Detroit was alive).
President Obama orchestrated lies by every member of his administration and the campaign team with respect to the nature of the Benghazi attack.
There are calls for a joint House/Senate investigation into Benghazi. While we congratulate Rep. Darrell Issa for his continued digging, we’re pretty sure this will go nowhere. The administration will stonewall any investigation and the press will still be busy digging into Chris Christie and “Bridgegate” three years from now.
Someplace the families of the lost will one day find out what really happened. Unfortunately it won’t be here and now or even soon.
