"Premeditated": Obama Administration Contradicts Libyans on Attack
Townhall ^ | September 16, 2012 | Kevin Glass

Obama Admin Official Contradicts Libyan Accounts of Attack On Sunday, U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice continued to support the Obama Administration's story that the Libyan attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya that resulted in the death of an ambassador were the result of spontaneous action by rioters rather than a planned and coordinated attack.

The only problem with this stance is that it contradicts all reports that are coming out of Libya and statements made by Libya's own president. Whether this is out of political expediency or an Obama Administration's inability to get on the same page is unclear.

The Obama administration is sticking to its position that Tuesday's deadly attack in Benghazi wasn't premeditated, contradicting U.S. lawmakers and Libya's own president.

Libya's own leader, interim president Mohammed Magarief, has said that foreigners infiltrated Libya over the past few months and planned the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

“The idea that this criminal and cowardly act was a spontaneous protest that just spun out of control is completely unfounded and preposterous,” Magarief told NPR in Benghazi on Sunday. “We firmly believe that this was a pre-calculated, pre-planned attack that was carried out specifically to attack the U.S. Consulate.

The Obama Administration is sticking to the line that the violence overseas directed at U.S. diplomatic institutions aren't about Obama Administration policy but about a little-seen video on YouTube.

Meanwhile, in Pakistan, violence erupted as hundreds of Pakistanis marched on the U.S. consulate in Karachi, and clashes with security forces resulted in one death and many more injured .

Obama will never admit it was a preplanned attack, he would be admitting that his chest thumping for killing Osama and others caused it.

What does anyone expect from Susan Rice. She is a tool of the Obama regime, just like Jay Carney.

Lies are their stock in trade.

Obama would lie and Susan Rice and Carney will swear to it.

You don’;t get to work for Obama by having courage, integrity or honesty.

If he does not spin it this way, he must admit that his Mid East Policies and initiatives are a total disaster that was bought with our tax dollars.

Today Susan Rice was on the Sunday shows and issued a bald face damnable lie. She said the attack on the consulate grew out of a protest outside the consulate. There was no riot or protest. This was a well planned military assault on the compound by seasoned and well armed fighters. The first thing they knew was the compound was being attacked by a militia style assault.

Susan Rice is a liar.
Jay Carney is a liar on the scale of Baghdad Bob.
Obama lies and it becomes his new reality.
The media lies by omission but never forget their knee pads>

Agreed, they're all liars. Carney has been lying so often he can't remember the last lie and he contradicts the last one, it's farcical.

The Libyan people are hearing this administration call their elected president a liar. Terrific diplomacy.

So if it was spontaneous why are they looking for a leader?

Libyan president: 'No doubt' attack 'preplanned'

"The way these perpetrators acted and moved -- I think we, and they're choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this was pre-planned, determined," Magariaf said on CBS's "Face the Nation."

"And you believe that this was the work of Al Qaeda, and you believe that it was led by foreigners. Is that what you’re telling us?" CBS host Bob Schieffer asked.

"It was planned, definitely. It was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago. And they were planning this criminal act since their arrival," Magariaf said.

Thanks for linking.

I really don't understand how Obama can say with a straight face this wasn't preplanned, he has to think everyone in the country are idiots or at least the majority. Forgetting about all the corroborating evidence and just considering the fact this happened on 9/11 should tell any sane person it was an act of revenge and preplanned. Of course he has the enemedia covering for him at every turn and you can bet he relies on that.

At this point I think all the matters for any Dem is to come up with an excuse. It doesn't matter how absurd it is because the MSM and all their supporters will throw that excuse up like the Race Card merely as a debate stopper. None of them have to believe it and most of them probably don't. All they care about is winning for the agenda. That's my two cents.

I did a FR search on that article title and came up with nothing. I don't know if I did it right but it looks like it hasn't been posted before. If you want to post it as a thread please do. I'm not big on starting threads myself.

As preposterous as some believing that "Arab Spring" rather Islamic Spring was incited by some poor, hungry, grocer-on-wheels on the streets of Cairo.

Yep those are good points.

But here is a another reason for the spin - they don’t want to admit a pre-planned terrorist event occurred on the anniversary of 9/11 on their watch. Then it gets into what did they know and when did they know it. Not only that but this occurred in Libya which they helped overthrow. So their hands are dirty. theoretically one would think they have should a good relationship with the winners of that conflict they supported and have good intelligence. also if it was planned and they had some idea of a plot then why didn’t they protect or ambassador. They can’t admit incompetence

on the other hand I am surprised they don’t blame it on Al Qaeda and say it was because Obama killed all these terrorist leaders and because Obama is so tough. If Obama wanted to reach the middle you would think he would want to triangulate and show that not only is he not a muslim but muslim terrorists killed his ambassador. The only thing I can figure is Obama is not interested in appealing to independents and moderates at the expense of admittign a 9/11 occurred on his watch. Of course a 9/11 did occur but they prefer to say it was an unexpected mob action

I record Fox News Sunday and Chris Wallace had Susan Rice her on as his first guest. I fast forwarded the entire segment with her, because I knew she would just lie and use a lame excuse

WaPo isn't much better but they have it too.

Libyan president says U.S. consulate attack was premeditated; U.S. Ambassador Rice says it began spontaneously

Nothing in an FR search on that either.

Ah, I see I was too slow, you already posted the Polutico article. lol
