Skip to comments.Administration’s Belated Admission that Libyan Attack Was Terrorism “No Biggie”

Though evidence has emerged showing that the White House knew the murder of the US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, was a terrorist attack within 24 hours of the event, it persisted in advancing a riot over an insulting video meme for more than two weeks. This failure to be straight with the American people is, according to Press Secretary Jay Carney no biggie.
The terrorist thing has been around for a long time, what good would announcing one more episode of the lengthy story have done? Carney wanted to know. On the other hand, the course the Administration did take gave the President the opportunity apologize for the insulting video. This helped build bridges to our Muslim friends. The President showed himself as sympathetic to Islamic religious sensitivities in his speech to the UN. We think this will pay big dividends in the future.
A second factor influencing the Administrations stance was the matter of security. Look, if the Ambassadors death is the result of video-inspired mob violence its not the Administrations fault, Carney continued. We didnt even know about the video, so there was no opportunity for us to try to interdict it. But embassy and consulate securitythose are the direct responsibility of the State Department. If these facilities are vulnerable to terrorist attack who do you think will get the blame? It was the Presidents desire to shield Secretary Clinton from this blame as long as he could.
Carney suggested that the Administrations actions were largely successful. No one was exposed during the vulnerable period. Now that interest has died down the damage to the Administration has been minimized.
In related news, former Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader labeled Obama a war criminal and worse than Bush. His claim to have the authority to assassinate anyone he declares an enemy of the state is a fateful stride toward tyranny that I think every person who cherishes freedom ought to oppose, Nader said.

Ok now, so we have from this administration : “ no biggie “ .. “ just bumps in the road “ ... “ just noise “ ...
“No Biggie” except that falsely blaming a video for the murders of four Americans generated more violence world-wide. Everybody knows muzzies don’t need a reason to maim and murder, but the Obama administration certainly provided them with one.

The Benghazi crime scene, although journalists had immediate access, has been deemed by the administration to be unsafe for FBI investigators until after the election. ;)
If you have a mudSlime as CEO every terrorist act is a workplace accident.
Terrorism,...... It's what they do!
Again, an article marked as humor and satire lands too close to the target. Our Executive branch exudes such excrement on a daily basis, so, when finely brushed satire enters the news sphere, it is easy to interpret this as reality.
The religion of peace, Muslims torched Buddest temples in Thailand.
The FBI and the CIA were sent there to clean up any evidence that would incriminate Obama and Hillary Clinton... it was a mop up mission.
The religion of peace, the Muslims torched a Buddest temple in Thailand.
That’s why I call it, not so satire, satire.
