Obama hides terror truth - Benghazi (LIBYA)

November 19, 2012

Until Friday, there were two possible explanations for why the White House failed to immediately call the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism. One was incompetence, the other was worse.

Now there is only one, and it is the worse one. Based on the persuasive testimony of ex-CIA boss David Petraeus, it is clear the Obama administration made a deliberate decision to mislead Congress and the American people.

The repeated claim that the attack was spontaneous and grew out of a demonstration against an anti-Islam video - a claim made by the president and secretary of State as they stood next to the bodies of four dead Americans - was a monstrous lie. It was vile and done for the basest of reasons.

Because we now know the truth of what happened - CIA reports were edited to remove the names of al Qaeda groups involved in the attack, Petraeus said under oath - we also know the motive. It was political self-preservation, meaning the president and his team put politics first.

The timing helps tell the tale. Just days removed from his Charlotte convention, where he danced on the grave of Osama bin Laden and boasted that al Qaeda was decimated, Obama couldn't bear to admit that affiliated groups were thriving in North Africa. And he certainly couldn't admit they had carried out a murderous attack on our consulate on the 11th anniversary of the most awful day in American history.

To do so would be to acknowledge the failure of his decision to ignore hard-line Islamists and that his team had erred egregiously in rejecting pleas for more security from Libya Ambassador Chris Stevens.

So the president lied, including in a speech to the United Nations, where he cited the video as the reason for the attack. He sent out reams of flunkies to do the same, including his snide press secretary, Jay Carney.

Most notably, UN Ambassador Susan Rice went on five Sunday television shows to spin the nonsense about the hijacking of a demonstration - a demonstration that never existed. Rice made a fool of herself, and now, she, too is damaged goods.

That a Democrat would see lightning as a sign from God demanding Obama's SCOTUS nominee be confirmed isn't even shocking at this point.
