After Four Died, Obama Lied

Normally I try not to make politics too big a piece of my blog.  But, at this time it appears that Obama and various in his administration have LIED about what they knew (and when they knew it) re the terrorist attack in Libya.

Obviously not all of the details are in, and some of the media is trying hard not overplay this, but I have some comments (with links) here.  These are everything I could get as of some 5:00 PM US ET.

The below is a CBS news item telling what they know so far:

They knew.  In that CBS piece, there are three emails sent to the State Dept. in Washington, DC re terrorists attacking.  This was HOURS after the attack, Obama and Susan Rice came out and blamed the "Mohammend Video" AFTER receiving these emails, make sure you see the third one:



Snippet from above CNN story (excuse formatting):

The administration also suggested that an anti-Muslim video produced in the United States likely fueled a spontaneous demonstration in Benghazi as it had in Cairo, where the U.S. Embassy also was attacked.
Clinton, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland and Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, all cited the video as a motivating factor in the attack.
On September 13 -- two days after the attack -- a senior U.S. official told CNN that the violence in Libya was not the work of "an innocent mob."
"The video or 9/11 made a handy excuse and could be fortuitous from their perspective, but this was a clearly planned military-type attack," the official said.
However, it wasn't until September 19 that Matthew Olsen, the nation's counterterrorism chief, told senators that it was a terrorist attack. The next day, Carney also said it was "self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack."
ALL of the above are Obama's friends!

And, to be "fair & balanced" here is a Fox News item:


One could make a case that this scandal is bigger than Watergate was (no one died in the Watergate scandal).  It has been almost two weeks since the September 11, 2012 attacks in Libya.  They knew terrorists were behind this within hours (remember, September 11, oh, and WHERE WERE the mobs re the video???).  And STILL we have no clarity from the administration.   Yet the Left sure did make a big stink about "four dead in Ohio" (Kent State), which of course they were CORRECT in doing.  Why no cries now?  Hmm?

Time to come clean, Mr. President.
