In Case You Need It: Obama, Benghazi and Terror

posted at 9:15 am on October 18, 2012 by

The media are still covering up for Obama by claiming that he did call the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, a terrorist attack. Nothing could be further from the truth, and here are all the documents you need to prove it.

Here is the transcript. He talks about Stevens, then talks about the movie but says it doesn’t justify killing anyone…

He then moves to 9/11/01, at which point he says that no terror act shall go unpunished and what have you.

Then look at this from Jay Carney, his press secretary.

Q Can you — have you called it a terrorist attack before? Have you said that?

MR. CARNEY: I haven’t, but — I mean, people attacked our embassy. It’s an act of terror by definition.

Q Yes, I just hadn’t heard you –

MR. CARNEY: It doesn’t have to do with what date it occurred.

Q No, I just hadn’t heard the White House say that this was an act of terrorism or a terrorist attack. And I just –

MR. CARNEY: I don’t think the fact that we hadn’t is not — as our NCTC Director testified yesterday, a number of different elements appear to have been involved in the attack, including individuals connected to militant groups that are prevalent in eastern Libya, particularly in the Benghazi area. We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al Qaeda or al Qaeda’s affiliates, in particular al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.

Next, let’s look at quotes from the media who reported on September 20th, that’s nine days after the attack, that the White House, for the first time called it a terrorist attack.

ABC News: “For the first time, White House press secretary Jay Carney publicly characterized the deadly assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, as a ‘terrorist attack’.”

LA Times: ” The White House for the first time Thursday described the Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya as a terrorist attack that may have involved militants linked to Al Qaeda.”

CNN: “The White House, for the first time Thursday, declared the attack that killed Stevens and three other people a terrorist attack.”

They’re so full of it, it’s a miracle they don’t choke (on their own lies). Next time you find yourself arguing with a ‘liberal’, use these links to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Obama and his friends are lying about the aftermath of the attack on the consulate.

He didn’t answer the guys’ question in the debate and Ladka went on Hannity and was still a professed undecided. Some people just don’t mind being lied to, I guess.

Are you kidding me? Some people prefer lies if it means they can go through life lazy and content.

Gryphon: reminds me of ‘you want the truth?! You can’t handle the truth!’

True (heh) though.
