More Evidence of Deception
Jennifer Rubin in this morning’s Washinton Post asks the same question we asked Wednesday morning, after the second Presidential Debate: Which lie are we to believe, Mr. President?
Is the media finally turning on Obama? Obama cannot spin his way out of the web of lies he’s tried to weave in the last week and now his own words, and the words of his own Press Spokesman Jay Carney are coming back to haunt him.
Clearly Obama misled at best, lied at worst to the American people with his claim Tuesday evening that he labeled the attacks on the Libyan Embassy an “act of terror” on the evening of Sept. 11th.
If in fact Obama called it “terrorism” that evening, then why was there not any subsequent releases from the White House press office calling it terrorism?
In fact, for twenty days after the attacks, Jay Carney the White House press spokesman refused to call it terrorism:
On September 20 — eight days after Obama claims to have called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror” Jay Carney told reporters during a daily press briefing that the White House had never called it “a terrorist attack.”
From report pool coverage on Air Force One, en route to Miami, 9/20/2012:
Q: Can you — have you called it a terrorist attack before? Have you said that?
MR. CARNEY: I haven’t, but — I mean, people attacked our embassy. It’s an act of terror by definition.
Q: Yes, I just hadn’t heard you —
MR. CARNEY: It doesn’t have to do with what date it occurred.
Q: No, I just hadn’t heard the White House say that this was an act of terrorism or a terrorist attack. And I just —
MR. CARNEY: I don’t think the fact that we hadn’t is not — as our NCTC Director testified yesterday, a number of different elements appear to have been involved in the attack, including individuals connected to militant groups that are prevalent in eastern Libya, particularly in the Benghazi area. We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al Qaeda or al Qaeda’s affiliates, in particular al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.
Here we have Jay Carney confirming Mitt Romney’s position during the debate on Tuesday evening that the White House did not call the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism. In fact, Carney said the “You Tube video” was the cause of the “protests” in Libya the day before.
So now the question we asked the other day: Which lie are we to believe, Mr. Obama? The lie in which you claimed you labeled it an “act of terror” or the lie in which you told for the following two weeks that it was a “spontaneous reaction” by muslims protesting an anti-muslim video?
Or perhaps Mr. Obama, you never labeled it an “act of terror” the evening of September 12th and lied directly to voters Tuesday night during the debates.
None of these positions is a good place for Obama to be, and he’s boxed himself in just days before the final Presidential debate – on Foreign Affairs no less.
But wait, there’s yet another problem with Obama’s answer from Tuesday night: (From the debate transcript)
“So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi Consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team, and I gave them three instructions. Number one, beef up our security and — and — and procedures not just in Libya but every embassy and consulate in the region. Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure that folks are held accountable and it doesn’t happen again. And number three, we are going to find out who did this, and we are going to hunt them down, because one of the things that I’ve said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them”
On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace (Oct. 14th) just two days prior to the debate David Axelrod was directly asked if there was an actual meeting of the National Security Council. Axelrod refused repeatedly to answer the question.
Given Barack Hussein Obama was on Air Force One early that morning flying to Las Vegas for a fundraiser it’s highly unlikely such a meeting ever occurred. Surely if there was, Axelrod would’ve answered “yes” to Chris Wallace’s repeated questions.
Further, if actually did as he said in his statement during the debate (quoted above) then why was the Embassy left un-secured for more than a week afterwards, during which CNN was able to enter the embassy and steal Ambassador Chris Steven’s diary?
Did Obama make himself “perfectly clear” when he gave his instructions – or did he in fact never give those instructions at all?
Folks, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS LYING TO YOU. Further, he’s the most inept, incompetent, WEAK President this country has ever had, period.
The more we learn about the Libyan Embassy tragedy in which United States Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American’s lost their lives, the more incompetent and downright dishonest we discover Obama really is.
And finally, this Reuters report suggests the administration was entirely unprepared for the 9-11 attacks.:
In the months before the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. and allied intelligence agencies warned the White House and State Department repeatedly that the region was becoming an increasingly dangerous vortex for jihadist groups loosely linked or sympathetic to al Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.
Despite those warnings, and bold public displays by Islamist militants around Benghazi, embassies in the region were advised to project a sense of calm and normalcy in the run-up to the anniversary of the September 11 attacks in the United States.
So the Obama Administration was caught completely unprepared, and when the TERRORIST ATTACKS occurred it went into damage control mode. There was NO EFFORT to find the truth, rather all efforts have been to COVER UP the truth.
This folks, is the full exposure of the web of LIES the Obama Administration has woven on the Libyan Embassy tragedy, and if one cares to look hard enough, they’ll find a similar WEB OF LIES around everything Obama touches.
I cannot wait until I wake up the morning of November 7th with the knowledge that Obama’s days in office are dramatically reduced when I hear the words “President Elect Romney.”
