Skip to comments.Obama Admin Now Admits Deadly Benghazi Attack Linked to Al Qaeda; WashPost Buries Item
Posted on 09/20/2012 8:06:32 AM PDT by chessplayer
In a hearing yesterday before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing, an Obama administration official admitted what all of us already knew through credible reports in FOREIGN media: Amb. Chris Stevens died on September 11 "in the course of a terrorist attack." As Karen DeYoung reported in today's Washington Post, National Counterterrorism Center director Matthew Olsen told the committee that "the people involved in the violent assault" on the consulate in Benghazi hailed from "several militant groups, including localized extremists in eastern Libya as well as affiliates of al Qaeda."
An al Qaeda connection to a deadly attack that killed four Americans at a consulate on the anniversary of 9/11 should be front-page news, but it was buried on page A8 of the Post with the bland headline "Intelligence official cites 'terrorist attack' in Libya."*
0bama lied and people died!
This is Obama’s “intelligence” operation.
10 days after the fact we find out what we already knew.
You would think this morning that Jay Carney,the President, Hillary and Susan Rice would all be on TV saying how sorry they were for misleading us.
Anyone heard that apology?
Don’t hold your breath.
The Administration is still tongue-tied, trying to find a narrative that works.
Sometimes, it is just easier to tell the truth.
The amateures in the 0bama regime screwed up AGAIN and people died, the Country endangered and the Middle East in turmoil! Meanwhile Barry's got fundraising to do!
The Washington Post has gone beyond ‘easy’ for dems - to verging on street whore...
When you tell the truth, you have a lot less to remember.
If Bush had been that slow in 2001 we’d have seen several terrorist attacks within the US during the week following Sept 11th
America was hit by a deadly terror attack on 9/11 and the Washington Post thinks its a minor story.
Ideology first, country somewhere way down the list.
Shows where the dims and their media loyalties are.
Washingon Pist is all wet.
I don’t mean to jack this thread but I don’t post vanity posts and this topic fits. After reading Drudge this morning I can’t stop thinking that this administration is literally at war with the Navy Seals. Just too many Seals or former Seals getting killed recently. Everyone knows about the public war of words going on, but it there a REAL shooting war going on that we don’t know about?
Did Obama give the order to take out the Somali pirates? Did he feel forced to green light the Bin Ladin raid out of fear that he would be exposed if he declined? How did so many Seals get taken out immediately following that raid? Has the administration been degrading the Seals through over use? Why so many leaks? Why would the Navy suddenly be so interested in making the Seals more “diverse”? http://nation.time.com/2012/02/24/navy-seeks-a-darker-shade-of-seals/
You are right.
Not a mention about the Libya 9/11 terrorist attack anywhere in the paper.
The truth? Surely you jest, truth and integrity are foreign concepts to the current White House occupant. (I can't bring myself to say "current president", it sounds almost sacrilegious).
Try as they may, even his best buds in the worshipful media can't cover up all of his lies. There's an old adage that says "truth will out". Maybe it will, but first it will have to make an end run around the media.
The administration has lied to the American people.
It has lied to the world.
U.S creditability is on the line.
Our dollar is based on faith.
How much “faith’ can the world have in our government while
being lied to?
The Washington Past went after the Nixon Administration 24/7 because they supposedly tried to lie and cover-up a bumbled peek at Democrat documents. The Obama Administration is lying and covering-up over their incompetence that resulted in four dead Americans including a United States Ambassador who represented all of us, including the Washington Past. Where’s the 24/7 attack of the Obama Administration? I hear the Washington Post is in the running for a Pulizer Prize for BEST JOB OF HIDING TO PROTECT DEMOCRATS.
