Benghazi: People died, Obama lied

Written By: Bob - May• 05•13

It is beginning to look spectacularly bad for the Obama Administration in regards to Benghazi, including new claims that they intentionally lied to the American public about the cause of the attack:

Congressional Democrats on Sunday distanced themselves from the Obama administration’s explanation of the Benghazi, Libya, attacks in the immediate aftermath of the fatal strikes, amid mounting evidence that suggests the information was revised to intentionally mislead Americans.

The original explanation of the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, was written by CIA officials, then revised by State Department and White House officials, according to news reports and witness testimony made available to Fox News.

Removed from the CIA’s so-called talking points were references to “Islamic extremists” and Al Qaeda in Libya. And five days later, Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made the Sunday talk show rounds to say the attacks were “demonstrations” sparked by protests in Egypt over an anti-Islamic video on YouTube.

“Well, it was scrubbed,” Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Steve Lynch told “Fox News Sunday.” “It was totally inaccurate. There’s no excuse for that. It was false information.  And what they try to do is harmonize what happened in Benghazi with what happened everywhere else across the Middle East.”

Lynch also acknowledged the talking points were likely revised to reflect President Obama’s decry – with his re-election bid in the balance — that “Al Qaeda is on the run.”

Barack Obama intentionally lied to the American people about what happened in Benghazi, because he was worried that he would lose the election if he told the truth. In and of itself, that does not seem to be an impeachable offense and merely confirms what we’ve long suspected about Obama’s character… or rather, his lack of it.
But if it turns out that Barack Obama refused to grant cross border authority to rescuers, and abandoned roughly 30 Americans and allied forces to live or die just so he could keep up a campaign lie… that fabrication of a cover story seem to warrant a legislative branch investigation into whether or not the President’s conduct warrants impeachment.
It also seems to justify a concurrent investigation into whether the actions of the President, his campaign staff, and government officials are guilty of criminal acts, but considering the moral turpitude of Attorney General Eric Holder, there is good reason to believe that this administration effectively holds itself above the law, as befitting the tyrants they long to be.

    Bob, has it been confirmed yet that US guns were sold to the Libyan embassy assault/snatch-n-grab team at US gun shows?

    I ask because after 5 years of watching this administration I have no doubt responsibility will be AWOL after all is said and done. Either US guns were found on the scene, or the ‘best recollection’ will be that the Ambassador called off a rescue attempt in order to keep casualties to a minimum.

    Your theories?

    Unfortunately the ‘loyal opposition’ will do nothing. When it comes to Imam Obama there is nothing to see here, just move along. Laws do not matter to the lawless and this includes the very top of our government.
    As Leona Helmsley once said ‘only the little people pay taxes’ or as Jeb Bush said ‘we want your vote then go away’ therefore the ruling elite are above the law and we have to pay the price for their arrogance everyday.

    AOSHQ notes a piece which asserts that no US rescue could have been executed:

    Having said that, I agree with the rest of your comments. The hermaphrodite-in-chief should be impeached for the odious HHS reg forcing Catholics (and others) to pay for abortifacients and abortions, and that’s just for starters.
