So far no one I have seen has connected all the dots so I am going to try.
1. Whitehouse Press release Sept 12, 2012: President Obama issued a press statement 24 hours after the Benghazi attack saying the following “While
the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that
took the lives of these public servants.”
Question: Why would Obama qualify the heinousness of the attack on our consulate and the murder of four Americans by injecting language about the
denigration of religious beliefs?
2. MEET THE PRESS Sept 16, 2012: The Obama Administration via Susan Rice claimed the attack was due to the video five days after the attack. “This
is a response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world.”
3. Sworn Testimony of State Department officials indicated requests for additional security were ignored
4. The CIA found militant links one day after Libya attack
Here are the only conclusions you can come to;
A. The Obama administration didn’t communicate well about one of the most tragic and important foreign policy events in the last 30 years and
certainly the most defining of his Presidency which makes his administration inept and ineffective.
B. IF there were signs that the video was causing violence in the region then the Obama administration failed to recognize the signs leading up to the
attack and adequately secure the Consulate. When they were asked for more security they ignored or refused the requests. When the people in charge of
security advised AGAINST drawing down security the Obama administration ignored the advice of the experts. This makes the administration inept,
ineffective and potentially negligent.
C. The Obama administration continually claimed they could not ascertain that the attack was a terrorist attack until a full investigation was
completed, despite proven intelligence to the contrary, despite the fact that it occurred on the anniversary of 9/11 and was heavily armed and well
organized. This makes the Obama administration inept and ineffective.
D. If there were NO signs of violence in the region related to the video then how did the Obama Administration determine, without investigation, that
the cause was the video? If you perform a Google search for news regarding “Anti Islamic Video” between the dates of Sept 1st to Oct 1 then the
earliest stories appear on the 18th. So how did the Obama administration know the video was a factor 24 hours after the event? They either knew about
it and did nothing or didn’t know about it and somehow made the link in less than 24 hours without an investigation.
E. The conclusion to all of this is that;
a. Either the Obama Administration directly misled the public for political purposes
b. They irresponsibly went with unproven data in stating the cause was the video which makes them completely incompetent
c. OR they had the video story all prepared because they knew about the event in advance…..
