We wrote in the Freedomist about the Benghazi Cover Up and are noticing this morning that many people still seem to be focused on the Clinton mea culpa. Lest we forget, the issue here is that Obama, Clinton, Rice all went out before Americans and the world and overtly lied about what happpened at Benghazi- Here is the crucial point from our article we posted last night-
The attacks happened September 11th. The State Department was in communication with the consulate while it was under attack. By September 25th, it would have been clear to any President who called upon the people within the State Department that the murder of the US Ambassador was not in response to a video, but a coordinated military operation by Al Qaeda in response to the recent death of their Libyan Al Qaeda leader. Yet, this is what President Obama said to the UN on September 2th (the whole video is at the end)-
“And that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, where a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.
For as the city outside these walls makes clear, we are a country that has welcomed people of every race and every faith. We are home to Muslims who worship across our country. We not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe.
We understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. I know there are some who ask why don’t we just ban such a video. The answer is enshrined in our laws. Our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech.”
President Obama is still, at this point, 14 days after the attack, pushing the narrative that the murder of our US Ambassador was a result of a vulgar, anti-islamic video. This is a better narrative than one that undermines one of the central planks of his re-election campaign, he is the Al Qaeda killer, the man who killed Bin Laden, the man who is defeating our enemies. The truth reveals this narrative is false. His strategies are allowing the resurgence and re-emergence of Al Qaeda as a threat to America around the world and even at home.
