White House Comes Clean: No Protest Outside Libya Consulate
Tomorrow marks the beginning of a major Congressional hearing on the terror attack In Libya and in a desperately transparent attempt to get ahead of damaging news, at the very last minute tonight, the State Department finally came clean:
In other words, absolutely everything we were told by our government -- by President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton, Ambassador Susan Rice. White House Spokesman Jay Carney, and any number of staffers and surrogates -- was 100% false.
There were no protests, no benign crowds exploited by local militias, and nothing had anything to do with a video. Our Ambassador, another diplomat, and two Navy SEALs were murdered in a brutally efficient and coordinated terrorist attack.
End of story.
In other words, just days after the president declared al-Qaeda all but obliterated at his convention in Charlotte, and because no one took direct threats and pleas for added security seriously, on the anniversary of September 11, four Americans were assassinated in Libya by al-Qaeda associates. And for days and days and days afterward, the Obama Administration covered this fact up with lies of omission, half-truths, double talk, and outright lies. >>>
If the corrupt media were to give this unraveling scandal a tenth of the attention it deserves, Obama's reelection chances would be non-existent. Libya isn't just a scandal about criminally lax security, it's also a cover up committed by a White House betting on the media to be a co-conspirator.
And thus far, with rare exception, that's been a pretty safe bet. >>>
You know, had Obama been half as concerned with the security of overseas assets in the form of personnel and intelligence as he is with securing more welfare for Big Bird, the world would look a whole lot different today.
But Big Bird is Big Bird and Libya was just a "bump in the road."
Now it makes perfect sense that Jay Carney has not held a briefing in 15 days and won't hold another until after the elections.
