HE LIED… Obama Was Told Benghazi Was Terrorist Attack Not YouTube Protest Within 72 Hours

On 9-11 the American heroes in Benghazi sent several emails to Washington asking for help.
The third email sent to the White House the evening of 9-11 blamed an Al-Qaeda-linked group for the attack on the consulate.

This email was sent before the lifeless body of Ambassador Stevens was dragged from the consulate ruins.

Then there’s this…
Intelligence officers told Barack Obama and senior White House officials that the attack was a terrorist strike and not a YouTube protest.
The Washington Guardian reported:

U.S. intelligence told President Barack Obama and senior administration officials within 72 hours of the Benghazi tragedy that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region, officials directly familiar with the information told the Washington Guardian on Friday.

Based on electronic intercepts and human intelligence on the ground, the early briefings after the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya identified possible organizers and participants. Most were believed to be from a local Libyan militia group called Ansar al-Sharia that is sympathetic to al-Qaida, the official said, while a handful of others was linked to a direct al-Qaida affiliate in North Africa known as AQIM.

Those briefings also raised the possibility that the attackers may have been inspired both by spontaneous protests across the globe on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and by a desire to seek vengeance for the U.S. killing last summer of a Libyan-born leader of al-Qaida named Abu Yaya al-Libi, the officials said, speaking only on condition of anonymity because they were discussing intelligence matters.

The details from the CIA and Pentagon assessments of the killing of Ambassador Chris Stephens were far more specific, more detailed and more current than the unclassified talking points that UN Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials used five days after the attack to suggest to Americans that an unruly mob angry over an anti-Islamic video was to blame, officials said.

Obama lied. He repeatedly lied. And the liberal media is letting him get away with it.

    Libtards admire liars. They just think to themselves “All politicians do it.” and move on without thinking about the substantial issues. So if the LSM were to report Zero’s lies, they would simply lose a few Libtard viewers or subscribers, who lap up LSM drivel because it aids their mental masturbation.

  • RL

    As its being a liar is so well established, my question is how such a sleazy cockroach gets those jug ears.

  • Ragspierre

    He knew it was a terrorist attack WHILE it was happening. Seriously, how could anybody believe otherwise?

  • Sasja

    Of course he lied. He always lies. He lies every time he opens his mouth. No matter what he tells you, it is a lie. Those who blindly follow him think he cares about them. That is a lie. He’ll squash them like a bug when he has no further use of them.

  • Buzzy

    I’m sure Obama and everyone in the situation room, that were watching the massacre in real time, knew it was a terrorist attack as they were watching it happen. The drone was transmitting video as the attack was happening. Those on the ground that witnessed the attack said that vehicles started showing up an hour before to block the streets leading into the compound/annex and that Ansar al-Sharia was written on some of those vehicles. No question the drone caught it all.

  • Trish

    And no one cares: not the pResident, not the media … and most people don’t care. After all, it wasn’t their family memberrs that got killed, violated, and dragged through the streets (not to mention photographed.) So who cares? This is about as frustrating as it gets.

  • Bitter Clinger

    What is more important? American security and American lives or The One’s reelection? I axe you. That tells you all you need to know about The Man Who Calls Himself Obama. 50.3% grubbing Americans (including the dead, illegals, and convincted felons) have elected America’s enemy. Thanks you imbeciles! A pox on all of you! May your Obama phones be flushed down a toilet overflowing w/ by-products all over your bathroom floor. Hopefully, it’s carpeted.

  • Sparky

    The only question left is who will have the courage to begin impeachment.

    This is the problem In America. Everyone crabs on the blogs and in the press. But nobody will actually take the required action to do something.

    America is going down the toilet totally because everyone is either helpless or lacks a backbone!

  • Sure he flat out LIED and half the country was dumb enough to fall for it!

  • Amash

    This incompetent fool doesn’t care about Americans, the Constitution, or the truth. His only concern is his agenda. Get in his way and you’re a goner. Now if you’re a Muslim, he’ll lie over and over to protect you. We haven’t seen or heard anything yet. Eventually, the truth about this creep will come out. Then, even the libtards won’t be able to defend him.

    It must be Bush’s fault he lied. That is what the MSM and supporters argue.

    [The second-term curse goes like this: A president (e.g., Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, etc.) wins re-election, but then his presidency implodes over the next four years – mired in scandals or disasters such as Watergate, Iran-Contra, Monica Lewinsky, the Iraqi insurgency and Hurricane Katrina.
    Apparently, like tragic Greek heroes, administrations grow arrogant after their re-election wins. They believe that they are invincible and that their public approval is permanent rather than fickle.]

  • Shawny

    Arming, aiding and lying to cover for enemies of this country is Treason. It doesn’t even really matter what his reasons were at this point or what else he was covering up. The result of his dereliction of duty resulted in the loss of American lives. I want to hear anyone with some cohones in the military or in congress stand up and charge Obama with being unfit to serve. This isn’t a scandal. It’s criminal negligence.

  • Burnt Toast

    Overall I would say that Obama did a pretty good job deflecting that fact his sorry sack-o-socialist anti-american ichor (puss) stared bug-eyed while our ambassador was killed –

    JEF won the election on deflection – it is not important that our ambassador was killed by a mob acting like a battalion of coordinated terrorists – what is important is when JEF ‘officially’ found out who were perpetrators.

    All the trillion$ $pent in the last four years were just campaign money, trillion$ that would have put us on a secure foundation with our own energy supply all but for one awful truth… many would lie for their power grab regardless how many lives are lost.

  • Indiana

    Every word out of Obama’s mouth is a lie…some are just more devastating. The only thing that makes me feel better about him being in the White House is: “His 72 virgins don’t exist, and he’ll live out his eternity in hell as the spawn of the anti-christ.”

    Once the Dem Senators after the drip..drip..drip of daily news
    fear for their re-election in 2014
    then they will step forward and do the select committee.
    They care more about their own hide than Obama’s.
    Might take a few years like Nixon though.

    Sorry folks but, as expected, Petraeus left the regime enough wiggle room to spin this their way. Based on Peter Kings hemming and hawing on TV this morning I think this story is about finished. The republicans are being completely Alinskied at every turn. Now they’ve got McCain and Graham set up as racists. God help us all.

    Does anyone know if the main stream media is covering any of this? I get the WSJ and it did finally cover it.

    We knew within 24 hours that this was directly linked to Al Qaeda and to Ansar Al Shariah. The information came from Libyans, one of them a man in London, part of a think-tank, who is Libyan and a former member of the LIFG. He correctly assessed the situation. On top of that the Libyan President affirmed that it was an Al Qaeda attack, yet Obama and his cronies banged on about a video.

    The video sounds more and more like it was a set-up or a pretext for the planned attack.

    One thing for sure from the re-elect of the BO we must ALL start calling the “MSM” what they truly are; Communist Treasonous Traitors! NOT “liberals!”

    They are the biggest enemy of America and freedom that exists today.

    They are NOT “liberal!”

    The word “liberal” gives them an air of legitimacy. They are not!

    Criminals! Liars! Deceivers!

    Complicit in murder around the globe that defends and supports Islamic Terrorism and the support of anything that has its roots from Karl Marx’s Communists Manifesto!

    AG Defends Suppressing Petraeus Scandal

    Attorney General Eric Holder defended withholding information on the scandal surrounding CIA Director David Patraeus until after the November 6 election.

    “I know there are those who think that they have a right to know everything about what’s going on in their government,” Holder acknowledged. “But those of us on the inside must place the broader national interest ahead of any presumed duty to keep the general public informed.”

    “As is becoming apparent in the post-election revelations, there are serious issues of national security that could affect the people’s confidence in their government,” Holder continued. “If these issues had become publicly known prior to November 6 they could’ve had an irreversible impact on the election outcome. It was our considered judgment to not let voters be stampeded by a knee-jerk reaction to a volatile and transitory chain of events that we felt detracted from the more significant elements of the campaign.”

    Holder argued that “the post-election separation of the offending party from his government post exacts the appropriate measure of justice without disrupting the ability of the Administration to continue its governance for another term. We are confident that history will validate the wisdom of our decision on this matter.”

    No protest before Benghazi attack, wounded Libyan guard says

    [A Libyan security guard who said he was at the U.S. consulate here when it was attacked Tuesday night has provided new evidence that the assault on the compound that left four Americans dead, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was a planned attack by armed Islamists and not the outgrowth of a protest over an online video that mocks Islam and its founder, the Prophet Muhammad.]

    Obama administration warned of possible
    attacks, but failed to take precautions

    [Sources close to U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration revealed that White House officials apparently received warnings that there were threats made to attack as many as seven U.S. missions in the Middle East, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as early as September 4. Sources also revealed that additional warnings were received a few days later, with similar information, but that all of the warnings were largely ignored by the administration. Normally when such warnings are received by the administration, the threat level is raised at U.S. installations around the world. At this point, there is no evidence that the Obama administration communicated the warnings with Consular officials in Libya or Egypt in advance of attacks that took place Monday in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo, Egypt, leaving the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead, with eight others wounded, including some U.S. military personnel.]

    Libya’s president says embassy attack planned by al-Qaeda

    [The attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans and ten Libyans was the work of “experienced masterminds” that had been planned well in advance, “I think this was al-Qaeda,” Mohamed al-Magarief, the Libyan president, said to Al Jazeera in an interview with Hoda Abdel-Hamid.]

    Four Different Attacks on diplomatic and western targets
    in Benghazi leading up to the murder of the U.S. ambassador

    [“While the Obama administration says there was no “actionable intelligence” foreshadowing the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, there were at least four attacks on diplomatic and western targets in Benghazi leading up to the murder of the U.S. ambassador.

    “This (the U.S. Consulate) was a place that was targeted months before with an IED (improvised explosive device),” Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House intelligence committee who has been briefed on the attack and investigation, told Fox News. “It’s clearly a target that they wanted to hit and they wanted to cause casualties. … It’s just too many coincidences here”]

    and so much much more these “news” headlines
    are bordering on insulting people’s intelligence..

    Graham or Mitch.. and you think they’re stupid, they’re so stupid

    you see, McCain (or whoever) speaks out, and that shuts everyone

    calling US islmaophobic, works like a charm every time.

    #24 I agree 100%. Just think 50% of Americans voted for a muslim president, with his history of dope. But the kicker to all these liberal Christian fakes is they are all getting ready for Xmas, a Christian Holiday, as they pretend they believe in GOD. And prepare to sing o silent night.
    I asked my co worker who is an atheist “why do you celebrate Xmas if you don’t believe in GOD”? He said, with a chuckle, “us atheists like presents too”. Its all about the free stuff.
