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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Objective Analysis

    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.]

    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.
