Americans Died, Obama Lied

Would I Lie to You? Next Question...

On Tuesday evening, Greta Van Susteren reported the astonishing but predictable news: The Obama administration knew within hours or even minutes who had perpetrated the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, ultimately killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.  The cover story about an anti-Islamic video was merely a scapegoat of convenience that had absolutely nothing to do with the attack on our consulate, but the sickening fact is that President Obama’s administration, including the State Department, and high level national security officials were well aware of the truth even as they continued to try to sell its cover story to the American people.  The reason is simple:  The Benghazi attack was the first successful strike on American soil by organized radical Islamic supremacists since September 11th, 2001, on its 11th anniversary.  Fourteen days after this attack, Barack Obama was still telling the American people it was about a video, desperately hoping to disconnect the events from the obvious failures in his leadership and foreign policy.  Barack Obama has deceived the American people.  For seven hours, in full possession of the facts, as the attack raged and Americans were slaughtered, this President and his administration did nothing except to concoct a cover story.

Perhaps the most galling meme put forward by the Obama administration in the wake of this dismal failure was the attempt to accuse Mitt Romney of politicizing the event.  The facts speak for themselves: The Obama administration commenced the politicization of this attack by lying to the American people on the basis of politically motivated calculations about the impact the truth would have on the upcoming election.  Barack Obama and his administration clearly have no shame, but while they have sought to hide the truth, on Tuesday evening, emails were disclosed that should put an end to the obfuscation.  From FoxNews:

The emails obtained by Fox News were sent by the State Department to a variety of national security platforms, whose addresses have been redacted, including the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence.

Fox News was told that an estimated 300 to 400 national security figures received these emails in real time almost as the raid was playing out and concluding. People who received these emails work directly under the nation’s top national security, military and diplomatic officials, Fox News was told.

That Candy Crowley would give Obama cover on the cover-up during the second Presidential debate is bad enough, but to now discover that the whole administration was quite well aware of the source of the attack means that we not only have a President willing to lie to the American people, but that he has surrounded himself with a cadre of bureaucratic henchmen who share his contempt for Americans.  The Obama administration may be amateurish with respect to its handling of foreign policy, but they are first-rate professionals when it comes to lying to the nation.  The mainstream media continues to cover and hide the lengths to which this administration has gone in its disinformation campaign against the American people.

Joe Wilson was right when he yelled at Obama during a State of the Union address: “You lie!” Worse, however, President Obama isn’t a man who once told a lie and got away with it: He is a reprobate.  He is a liar by trade, and nothing he says may be trusted.  Cataloging the lies of his debate appearance on Monday night would take many pages, but suffice it to say that even some in the mainstream media are having a difficult time covering his tracks.

What readers need to know about Barack Obama is this: There is no lie he won’t tell, and no American whose life and memory he will not sacrifice to his political desires.  This President yammers about the politicization of a tragedy as a pre-emptive strike against the shocking truth that political calculations were and remain the motive for the cover-up of the events in Libya.  Obama hopes the American people will be fooled again, and that when he says he has “kept us safe,” they will forget the deadly attack on our consulate, and the Fort Hood shooting, among other acts of terrorism he refuses to acknowledge as such.  That’s all this really is, and all it’s intended to do.  His entire administration is convicted of a lie, and he’s betting the American people will be too.

Terrorism?  What terrorism?

    Every day I pray that someone will have an attack of conscience or grow a backbone and finally say ENOUGH and just spill their guts!! There has to be one American left in the government. There just has to be. I sort of understand why people are afraid of this guy (He has a bit of a history of people dying unexpectedly around him) but come on! I’m really starting to believe the botched kidnapping theory about Amb. Stevens. I think when eveything went south they just went with the preplanned story they had to explain why he was kidnapped (the video). I don’t know why they thought they would get away with it but I hope this all comes out before election day.

    Every news site carrys the headline on this story as…”White House knew of extremist claims in Benghazi attack.” It’s like those stories with headline…SUV drives into school children at bus stop.” Driver knows who drove into school children at bus stop. And hope charges are pending.

      Unit, you’re quite right. When a Democrat occupies the White House, the media refers to the building rather than the occupant.

  • NY4P

    Great to see you here Mark. I thought maybe John Galt had got to you and you disappeared to the Gultch.

    • http://www.markamerica.com/ Mark America

      NY4P, it’s not that it hasn’t crossed my mind.More on that later.

  • the unit

    Although I would not put anything past them. Kidnap story will be like grassy knoll with Kennedy. Now someone did leak emails so maybe that’s because of their conscience. But it takes two to tango and play hide and seek. So would have to take kidnap play there. Did Stevens do the tango? Will be a rumor for years to come. For sure he did the hide and terrorists did the seek.

    What are we going to do about it? Kick Obama out, that’s it?
    How can we say we feel deeply for the those who lost loved ones and then let the President and his admin off the hook? As if this is just one of those things that happen. It is not.
    The people want Obama to be punished for these crimes, but we know our leaders in Government will let him off the hook. So it will be as if Obama was just another US president. The PermanentPoliticalClass will protect each other, as always.

    • the unit

      That’s about it. Kick out…can we do even that? Gased up just a little while ago…boom box in car next to me blarring I guess CD declaring what great things Obama has done. Well, they were getting gas ! Groceries in back seat came from where?

        Ever since Bengazi happened I got the feeling we are going to win in a landslide, one of the biggest in the history of America, BECAUSE of Obama.
        It helped that Romney came out fighting (first debate). Dissappointed he did not finish O off on Bengazi during last debate. O should have been limping from there on to election day. But the “smart” people disagree, apparently brilliant strategy by Romney. To me it was more the Romney of the convention that chose to ignore our military for some strange reason.
        Still believe it will be a landslide, and then charge O and Hillary for crimes against the American people.

        • the unit

          I as well expect a landslide for Romney. Easy to go out on a limb as just a poster. If wrong, just a poster. Not so easy for a respected website, this and others. I predict a blowout. That comes after Nov. 6, a blowout at Man’s Country Chicago when D.C democrats come home to all they got left to blow. Maybe that’s why O didn’t answer phone on 9/11/12…it was on vibrate.

    Mark,
    Your return to these pages is MUCH appreciated … too bad the subject matter is so very distasteful.

    The glimmer of hope in all of this is that it appears the MSM is FINALLY beginning to question Dear Leader’s actions/inactions. It’s pretty obvious that they realize they have no choice short of giving up ANY semblance of objectivity. Whatever the reason, the change is welcome.

    Your comment “More on that later.” re: a disappearance to the Gulch … elicited a raised eyebrow here … I hope we soon get to hear more about that.

    Yet in the polls, Obama and Romney are nearly tied. Aside from the failure of the RNC to produce a stronger candidate, what does it say about the American population that *anyone* could still think of voting for the liar-in-chief?

  • the unit

    Hillary says emails “don’t paint the full picture.” Ok, if we painting by numbers and they keep moving the numbers. Too many talented painters out here that have had the complete picture of this administration, all, every bit, including Benghazi. And Powell has accepted his distorted picture.

  • the unit

    Full picture painted today. We got their number. Not surprised Gen. Powell on board sinking ship as once washed up, what’s one more time, but for sure at Petrarus. Now him as well.

    It’s amazing how you Republicans let Bush off the hook when terrorists came onto our own turf and killed thousands of Americans, then…you guys reelected him.

    • http://www.markamerica.com/ Mark America

      First of all, if you had been a reader of this blog for any significant portion of time, you would know that this IS NOT a “Republican” website. It’s conservative, and there’s a big difference. Many here, self included, don’t endorse everything or even most things the Bush administration did. That said, you Democrats couldn’t wait to absolve Bill Clinton of any culpability in the failures that permitted 9/11/01, even though the vast bulk of those failures were a result of his maladministration. The dirty little secret of 9/11/01 is how important it really had been that Bill Clinton was engaged in sex in the Oval Office rather than doing his freaking job. Much like the current coward-in-chief who flew off to Vegas in the immediate wake of the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Bill Clinton was too busy getting it on with Monica Lewinsky to establish security policies that might have prevented the attacks on our embassies in Africa or the USS Cole.
