Truth is only used by Obama when every other option fails
Obama couldn’t even protect his own ambassador. He didn’t even try. What. The. Hell. In fact, requests by Ambassador Stevens for more security were ignored completely:
When security officer Eric Nordstrom asked for more security in Libya in light of more than 200 security breaches from July 2011 to July 2012, he received no answer. Forty-eight of these recorded breaches took place in Benghazi.
Instead, he learned that State Dept. official Charlene Lamb wanted to keep the number of security personnel in Benghazi “artificially low,” whatever that means. The result of this was not only the death of four Americans on September 11, but the wounding of three others who were hurt so bad that one of them is still in the hospital.
The earlier lie attributing the attack on “some anti-Muslim video” has been uncovered and now even the US State Department is running for the hills:
The UK Telegraph sums up what happened yesterday with remarkable terseness: “The US state department has released a full account of what happened the night its ambassador to Libya was killed, rejecting its own earlier claims that the attack was a protest that had got out of hand. ” Short version: what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack; there was never any real question that it was a terrorist attack; there were no protests at the Benghazi consulate prior to the attack; and UN Ambassador Susan Rice* either didn’t know what she was talking about when she was blaming the whole thing on a video trailer, or else she lied through her teeth. In other words, forget about the Obama administration’s version of events being coherent. It’s barely recognizable as being in English.
Yeah, and as usual, Obama says whatever he thinks he needs to say to cover his own ass.
It was September 11, 2012. The first thing most of us thought after that attack was “Ah ha! Anniversary of the 2001 attacks – terrorism.”
Did he really think we’d believe it was some stupid video forever?
