Obama - "I Lied"
American LiveWire.com ^ | 10/17/12 | David Webb

Posted on 10/17/2012 11:37:10 AM PDT by Chris in VA

During the debate last night, Obama claimed that he called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror” the day after in a statement he made from the Rose Garden. Here is the claim Obama made during the debate –

“The day after the attack, governor, I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people in the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened,” Obama said. “That this was an act of terror and I also said that we’re going to hunt down those who committed this crime.”

Obviously, this caught me by surprise as I recalled no such labeling of the attack as an “act of terror.” So I went searching for the Rose Garden statement –

” It is what it is — Obama lied.”

And in other breaking news, water is wet.

When Hussein opens his mouth, there is an overwhelming chance a lie will come out. Remember, islamofascists are allowed and even encouraged to lie.

We shouldn't be challenging what Obama claims he said on Sept 12th - We should be accepting that he called it an "act of terror" on Sept 12th, and then challenging him to defend the two weeks that followed - challenge the fact that he and his administration, knowing that this was in fact a terrorist attack, chose to spend two weeks denouncing the video instead of denouncing the terrorism:

If he ever actually said said the words “I lied”, it be the only truth he’s told.

As the author says, it’s splitting hairs.

I could accept that he ‘implied’ that it was a terrorist act, in that speech in the Rose Garden.

HOWEVER, one should say then, If that is true, Mr. President, then why did you change your story the next day and not only say it was a random protest by Muslims offended by the ‘video’, and have the (CIA plant) who made the original video clips (not the edited ones shown on youtube, but the original) ARRESTED ?

Where you LYING then, or are you LYING NOW, Mr. President ?

I would agree with you wholeheartedly if he actually called it an act of terror.

Then I think you would get hit with “you’re a racist label” since Obama wouldn’t be able to answer that either.

I got the transcript and pasted into word.
The word “terror” is the 622 word in a 803 word speech.
Wouldn’t you think that woudl be one of the first few words?
How many words did it take W to say it was terror.

Good Morning. Everyday all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interest and values of our nation.
Often, they are away from their families, sometimes in great, great danger.
Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador Chris Stevens, as well as his Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith.
We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed and today the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.
The United States condemns, in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We’re working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I’ve also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths.
We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.
The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. Already, many Libyans have joined us in doing so,
and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya.
Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens’ body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had died.
It’s especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi
because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi.
With characteristic skill, courage and resolve he built partnerships with Libyan revolutionaries and helped them as they planned to build a new Libya.
When the Gadhafi regime came to an end Chris was there to
serve as our ambassador to the new Libya, and he worked tirelessly to support this young democracy. And I think both Secretary Clinton and I have relied deeply on his knowledge of the situation on the ground there.
He was a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps.
Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is
still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. And today the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on.
I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the
work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of
those who loved them back home.
Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourn with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.
As Americans let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those, both civilian and military, who represent us around the globe.
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.
Today we mourn for more Americans who represent the very
best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.
But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.
We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory and let us continue their work in seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children. Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost, and may God bless the United States of America.”

Office of the Press Secretary For Immediate Release September 12, 2012 Remarks by the President on the Deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in Libya Rose Garden 10:43 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger. Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack ,NOT TERROR ATTACK on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. NOT TERROR ATTACK We're working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers (NOT TERRORISTS) who attacked our people.

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.(CONTINUED APOLOGY FOR THE VIDEO) But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence (NOT TERROR). None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.NOT TERROR.

Already, many Libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens’s body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had died.(NO- HE WAS RAPED, MURDERED, AND DRAGGED THROUGH THE STREETS)

It's especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution, Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi. With characteristic skill, courage, and resolve, he built partnerships with Libyan revolutionaries, and helped them as they planned to build a new Libya. When the Qaddafi regime came to an end, Chris was there to serve as our ambassador to the new Libya, and he worked tirelessly to support this young democracy, and I think both Secretary Clinton and I relied deeply on his knowledge of the situation on the ground there. He was a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps.

Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. Today, the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on. I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who love them back home.

Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack NOT TERROR in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

No acts of terror (NEVER DOES HE REFER TO THE BENGHAZI ATTACK)will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. (TERRIBLE-NOT TERROR) And make no mistake, justice will be done.

But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers.(NOT TERRORISTS) These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children. Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America. END 10:48 A.M. EDT

Like the Ministry of Truth in the prescient novel 1984, the sheeple are expected to accept what the regime says today and not depend on their own experience and memory. No wonder Romney was stunned at the audacity.

Why stop there?

Yesterday, December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed [NOT TERROR TORPEDOED] on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu..
Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] against Malaya..
Last night Japanese forces attacked [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] Hong Kong..
Last night Japanese forces attacked [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] Guam..
Last night Japanese forces attacked [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] the Philippine Islands..
Last night the Japanese attacked [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] Wake Island. And this morning the Japanese attacked [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] Midway Island..
I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack [NOT TERROR ATTACKED] by Japan on Sunday, December 7, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.

And not once did FDR ever say it was anything else. Not once did FDR blame the attacks by the Japanese on anything else. He called it for what it was.

Also, FDR called for a delcaration of war against the Japanese the next day. FDR did not spend weeks “investigating” whether or not it was an “attack.”

Big difference.
