Why Would He Lie?

Posted on 11/16/2012 1:59:57 PM PST by greenishness

Somebody has tried to downplay the terror attack in Libya.

If that person is The President then I ask why?

If The President lied, Why would he lie?

Why did he lie?

It was before the election. He didn’t want anyone to know that he kisses the a$$e$ of the bearded ones and that he loves them so much that he was willing to sell out his country for them.

It all goes back to the Blind Sheikh.

You ain’t gonna read about this in the Lame Stream media. But once you know the fundamentals of Obama’s plan to crony up to his buddies in the muzzie brotherhood and stage a catch and release deal for Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, then all the other pieces of the Benghazi scandal will follow that.

1. He doesn’t want to acknowledge terrorism on his watch.
2. Another time to sympathize with Islam and deride any ridicule of it.

3, He is a weasel.

I Can’t Help Myself

by The Four Tops
from Old School Soundtrack

(Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)

Sugarpie honeybunch
You know that I love you
I can’t help myself
I love you and nobody else
In and out my life
You come and you go
Leaving just your picture behind
And I kissed it a thousand times

When you snap your fingers
Or wink your eye
I come a running to you
I’m tied to you, baby
And there’s nothing I can do
Ooh, sugar

Sugarpie honeybunch
I’m weaker than a man should be
I can’t help myself
I’m a fool in love you see
Wanna tell you I don’t love you
Tell you that we’re through
And I’ve tried
But everytime I see your face
I get up all choked up inside

When I call your name, girl
It starts the flame burning in my heart
Tearin’ it all apart
No matter how I try
My love I cannot hide

Sugarpie honeybunch
You now that I’m weak for you
I can’t help myself
I love you and nobody else

Sugarpie honeybunch
I’ll do anything you ask me to
I can’t help myself
I want you and nobody else

Sugarpie honeybunch
You know that I love you
I can’t help myself

Iran hostage crisis:

The crisis has also been described as the “pivotal episode” in the history of Iran–United States relations.[6] In the United States, some political analysts[who?] believe the crisis was a major reason for U.S. President Jimmy Carter’s defeat in the November 1980 presidential election.

I think he would have won the election even if he didn't try and cover up the source of this attack.

Can you imagine what would happen in this country if The President was impeached? There was talk about rioting if he lost the election, if he was impeached it would make those potential riots look like Disney World.

Obamalinsky’s plan was a pre-election trade - Stevens for the Blind Sheikh - but those darn hero Seals chose to defend Stevens.

Or, it could have been Stevens for the 2 terrorists that were caught and being held in the Annex.

But I’m going with the Blind Sheikh - Obamalinsky wanted to free him somehow.

Obamalinksy should be strung-up for being a traitor!!!!!

Lying seems to come naturally with this bird, no offense to birds meant.

I believe from the vast collection of articles in the confusion of the aftermath of the Libyan event, which is still the rule today that there was some illicit operation going on that has to be covered up by the WH, or the event will trigger knowledge of abuse of power by the WH, and the political party he represents.

We won’t know the answer for some time yet as those that can answer are obviously threatened, and evading answering questions, as well others are working to sabotage investigations that could, would expose their leader, and their Political Party to difficulties.

The whole Obama presence is a manipulated theater.

It indicates his cowardly position to not defend Americans. It gave him a chance to lie and set up a straw man to make his fellow islamic leaders think he was down with the cause (The future does not belong to those who insult islam.) I get a little throw up in my mouth when I think of his UN performance and how Clinton lied to the father of the dead seal.

Because he botched the response.

A good President would’ve received word on the attack, ascertained that it was a coordinated terrorist attack, as the CIA knew ... and sent in the nearby Delta team to secure the facility and rescue the ambassador. My understanding is that, with quick action, this could’ve been done within a matter of hours — long before the Ambassador and SEALs were killed.

But, he didn’t. He waited around. He went to a fundraiser. He blamed it on a movie. And, people died. He lied because their blood is on his hands ... and he was up for reelection. He underestimated the threat, and catastrophically fumbled his role as CIC, and good men died because of it.

I agree with you 110%, anyone and everyone can say it is a kook conspiracy theory, I really don’t care it is the only thing that makes ANY sense. The only reason this commy admin would have not only not grant repeated pleas for more security, but decrease what was already there. He got together with other to put forth a talking point that would ELIMINATE ANY CULPABILITY. IMO that is ALL there is to it, that is why they all lied!!!

Because they are selling weapons to the Syrian rebels, which have fallen into the hands of Al Queda. They are lying to cover up what’s going on over there.

Why indeed? Seems the obvious answer is that he wanted to maintain the fiction of a peaceful Arab Spring and “his” elimination of AlQueda until the election. Any objective citizen can see that.
The process? I’ve been hearing the story of a hostage swap everywhere, and it may not fly. How’s this sound: he was allowing the ambassador to get taken hostage only to get tough and demand his release just before the election. A couple “rogue” cia/military guys refused to stand down and killed 40 muzzies, enraging the crowd... while Stevens hid in a safe room. The operation went FUBAR and Obama insisted on pushing the Youtube story against ALL logic.
And now the massive cover up. The sin may have been forgivable, but NOT a cover up of this size, Ask Nixon.

There were two reasons to lie. The first is that the Obama regime and Hillary were right in the middle of defending the Muslim Brotherhood, and the regimes romance with Arab Spring. Remember al-Qaeda was supposed to be dead with Osama, and Obama was bragging about being responsible for the deed. All that nonsense from the regime blew up at Benghazi. The other reason was that using the video as an excuse for the terrorism helped the regime lay some of the blame on conservatives and people who don’t buy into the Islam is peace lie. The terrorism became the fault of the people who are critical of this regime’s foreign policy.

The attack was planned months in advance with the protest as a cover.

It's impossible to plan an attack against a particular person on a particular day at a particular location unless you have a guarantee that person will be at that location on that particular day.

The only people that could guarantee Stevens would be there on that particular day is Hillary and Obama.

That's why they had to create the spontaneous myth. Planning that far in advance means the WH has to be in the loop.

When the spontaneous lie fell through the only alternative was to make it appear as if there was NO connection with the protest in Egypt and the attack.

By continuing to lie and claim it was a spontaneous attack, everyone else continued making the claim there was no connection.

Even if the terrorist had learned of the planned protest in Egypt a week in advance then planned the attack, someone would have had to leak to the terrorist that Stevens would be at that location on that day. In that case fingers would be pointing to leaks coming from Hilly's office.

Spontaneous attack or no connection are their only two options to not be in the loop.

It may not have come down to trading the Blind Sheikh for our Benghazi hostages. I beleive Obama would have reneged on the deal if he could have.

Trouble is.. No one could or did curtail the street thugs and they went too far and killed the hostages.

If only them damn pesky Marines would have obeyed the order to “Stand Down”, them maybe Obama’s plot would have worked.

The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.
