Hmmm, who benefited? It is obvious that we will never find out the truth behind the Benghazi cover-up; so, we’ll just have to use some deductive
reasoning, using what information we do have. With known facts, we should be able to come up with some valid arguments.
Remember this statement the U.S. Embassy in Cairo released on that day?
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims –
as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United
States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious
beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the
religious beliefs of others.”
I believe it was the same day the Administration said something like, “we do not stand by that statement” and then…
"Although the White House initially distanced itself from the embassy statement above, they had their straw man. Obama administration officials
decided to push the argument that the amateur YouTube video insulting Islam, with just 300 views at the time, was the reason for the violence. A
spontaneous protest of the film that spun out of control was the talking point."
Does anyone else find it interesting that the (now) famous video had only 300 views at the time? Yet, we are to believe the Administration knew
enough about it to blame the attack on that very video?
I mean, if this were the case and it was due to a video, would it not make sense that it would have been viewed (at least that many times) by the
Administration and all of its advisors? I’ve seen personal videos posted to youtube strictly for family and friends that get more hits/views.
Oh, but after the shameless plug made by our Administration, it sure went viral:
Then, after Obama administration officials repeatedly blamed the YouTube video, the Muslim world erupted, with U.S. Embassies in multiple countries
coming under siege, just as we saw with the Danish cartoon fiasco.
On September 14, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “The cause of the unrest was a video," adding, “The reason there is unrest is
because of the film.”
In this case, Carney was actually telling the truth. The cause of the unrest was a result of a video, a video the Obama administration cynically
After the video was blamed, all hell broke loose with rioting in more than 25 countries, and many more people were killed.
So, maybe the Administration lied about the video being the cause of the Benghazi attack, but it did end up being the cause of the subsequent attacks.
Isn’t that ironic?
I don't believe it was to make the Muslim world believe America is now a Muslim friendly country. It looks more like the Administration is poking
the hornet's nest, intentionally.
