Sen. John McCain went on CBS’ Face the Nation this weekend, during his discussion on Benghazi McCain said,
“The truth about Benghazi doesn’t fit Obama’s, ‘I Got Bin Laden’ Narrative.’”

As the pieces fall into place it has become obvious that the Obama Administration shamelessly lied to the American people about the Benghazi attack.

Today Michael Goodwin at FOX News wrote about the ugly truth about the Benghazi attacks:

Until Friday, there were two possible explanations for why the White House failed to immediately call the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism. One was incompetence, the other was worse.

Now there is only one, and it is the worse one. Based on the persuasive testimony of ex-CIA boss David Petraeus, it is clear the Obama administration made a deliberate decision to mislead Congress and the American people.

The repeated claim that the attack was spontaneous and grew out of a demonstration against an anti-Islam video — a claim made by the president and secretary of State as they stood next to the bodies of four dead Americans — was a monstrous lie. It was vile and done for the basest of reasons.

Because we now know the truth of what happened — CIA reports were edited to remove the names of al Qaeda groups involved in the attack, Petraeus said under oath — we also know the motive. It was political self-preservation, meaning the president and his team put politics first.

The timing helps tell the tale. Just days removed from his Charlotte convention, where he danced on the grave of Osama bin Laden and boasted that al Qaeda was decimated, Obama couldn’t bear to admit that affiliated groups were thriving in North Africa. And he certainly couldn’t admit they had carried out a murderous attack on our consulate on the 11th anniversary of the most awful day in American history.

To do so would be to acknowledge the failure of his decision to ignore hard-line Islamists and that his team had erred egregiously in rejecting pleas for more security from Libya Ambassador Chris Stevens.

So the president lied, including in a speech to the United Nations, where he cited the video as the reason for the attack. He sent out reams of flunkies to do the same, including his snide press secretary, Jay Carney.

  1. Obama, Axelrod calling Candy Crowley (CNN) aka Jabba the Hut “come resque us you lap dog propagandists.”

  2. Barry lies, our Warriors and Heroes, and our Republic die.

  3. So the president lied, including in a speech to the United Nations, where he cited the video as the reason for the attack. He sent out reams of flunkies to do the same, including his snide press secretary, Jay Carney.

    Let’s get the impeachment and conviction started.

  4. The self-called “Progressives” have been so enamored with lies for so long that they see truth itself as something malleable. Were they to become aware that the traitor Zero lies routinely and brazenly, they would admire him for it. This latest “revelation” will make no difference: those who care are in the minority; those who slumber will continue to slumber; and the people of the lie will either disbelieve it or fit it into their magical worldview according to what makes them feel good.

    At this point, anybody who does not know that Zero is a liar is either slumbering or lying.

  5. Randall/Soetoro/Obama lied??? Please say it ain’t so! Just look at his history and we KNOW he is incapable of telling un-truths or obsfucation.

    Of course, all Muslims can lie to infidels with impunity.

  6. Look for the Alinsky smear tactics to be employed FULL BLAST on McCain to isolate and marginalize and destroy him. That is how it works.

  7. The Republicans should have FORCED these hearings BEFORE the election. You know if the roles were reversed, a Republican president would have been forced to resign on September 12…and then the trials to put him in prison would have begun on September 13. Look at how Illinois treated governors, one term as governor and one term in prison. It’s the Chicago mob politics way.

  8. As the pieces fall into place it has become obvious that the Obama Administration shamelessly lied to the American people about the Benghazi attack.

    Apparently, it’s okay, because he’s a Democrat.

    Look for the Alinsky smear tactics to be employed FULL BLAST on McCain to isolate and marginalize and destroy him. That is how it works.

    Unlikely. Know why? Because McCain, the “maverick”, is a very useful idiot for the Democrats.

  9. And of course don’t forget that they all sat on their hands while the attack was going on.

    Except Obama.

    He went to bed, then got up the next morning and flew to Las Vegas.

    And the media still protects him.

    Lindsey Graham: White House Neglected Ambassador’s
    Security, Manipulated Facts of Death

    [“I think it’s very odd that the storyline they chose omitted al-Qaida, which would help the president enormously, and I don’t buy it,” he said. “And I don’t but the intel community did a great job. I like [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Mike Rogers and [California Sen.] Dianne Feinstein, but to say the intelligence community did a good job — what about the months before this attack?”

    Graham then launched a verbal assault on Obama for failing to heed
    multiple warnings by U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who died in the
    Sept. 11 assault, about the lack of security at the U.S. Consulate in Libya.

    “I blame the president more than anybody else,” he said. “Susan Rice is a
    bit player here. I blame the president for making this a death trap. I blame
    the president for not having assets available to help these people for eight
    hours.”

  12. Impeach him to ensure that all those voting for the Dems learn how their party operates. It will of course be voted down in the Senate, but the truth will be published.

  13. I can, in all honesty, grasp the concept of the necessary, strategic lie on the part of the US government. That kind of behavior started with George Washington.

    That notion, that blaming a military-scale 9/11 anniversary attack on an obscure, english language video, was based on some sort of legitimate strategy, and was necessary, doesn’t pass the smell test. The lie wasn’t to influence our enemies, and it wasn’t in our country’s best interests.

  14. Mark Levin interviewed Caroline Glick from the JPost a couple of days ago..she reported that the rockets being fired into Israel originated in Libya. So in Gaza, Hamas is attacking Israel with firepower from Libya. What was going on in Benghazi? What was Stevens up to? What was going on in the CIA annex? oBama/ hIllary owe every American answers. We need to keep the pressure up and not give up!

  15. the issue is what happened to our fellow Americans…it is negligent homicide followed by a cover up perpetrated by the media sycophants. many in the administration, including our dear leader, need to be punished and/or squelched until the midterm elections. this is an opportunity to take out the socialist agenda…keep fighting!

    [Officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they
    were not authorized to publicly discuss troop movements.

    It is believed that the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary
    of the September 11 attacks, was a planned ambush carried out by
    terrorists using a pro-Islam protest as cover.

    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.]

    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”

  17. Oh no. Obama lied? Tell me it ain’t so! That is just too shocking to hear. I’m incredulous.

  18. Despite all the overwhelming evidence that the youtube video had nothing to do with the events in Libya, all the Dem pundits have been out for the past couple of days suggesting that it was still a factor, which explains the “confusion” about conflicting statements.

    GIVE ME A BREAK!

    “If a lie is told often enough it becomes the truth” — Alinsky 101.

    Let’s hope the few honest journalists left in America don’t fall for this BS.
