TOOK O NINE DAYS TO FINALLY ADMIT WHAT EVERYONE ON THE PLANET ALREADY KNEW
It only took the Regime nine days to admit the truth. The truth that everyone else on the planet already knew. The attack on the consulate in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.
But – in true O fashion – the Regime stubbornly tried to have it both ways – claiming that yes, it was a terrorist attack – but, it wasn’t pre-planned. Interesting concept. Complete bull crap, but interesting just the same.
The question I’ve yet to see asked – which is why I’m asking it – is this:
How could various apparatchiks of the Regime break their necks rushing to microphones to immediately proclaim the attack was “spontaneous” – and simultaneously claim they couldn’t comment on whether it was a terrorist attack until “the investigation” was complete?
Moreover, if they didn’t know if it was terrorist attack, how could they know it was spontaneous? They didn’t. They knew it was a terrorist attack in the immediate aftermath and chose to
lie run with the “spontaneous” explanation – naively hoping against hope that the whole thing would just go away. Try as the Obama Media Group did to cover the Regime’s ass – it didn’t go away.
The reason the Regime tried to pull off The Big Lie, of course, was because it knew full well that an admission that the attack was indeed a pre-planned terrorist attack would open a whole nother can of worms: Why was the consulate left unprotected? Why was Ambassador Steven allowed to travel to the area – without security, no less? (The ex-SEALS killed were not a security detail for Stevens.) Why didn’t the Regime’s intel warn of the attack in advance? O told us the “war on terror” was over – more than a year ago – right? Tough questions. O doesn’t like tough questions.
Consider the arrogance of the Regime: Shortly after the attack, the Libyan government announced that it was indeed a pre-planned terrorist attack. But the Regime? No way. They trotted out UN Ambassador Susan Rice to the Sunday talk shows where she promptly made a complete fool of herself. The Poodle (Regime mouthpiece Jay Carney) strode to podium in the White House press room day after day and continued to pathetically cling to the “spontaneous” lie. Hell – even after the Regime finally admitted before a congressional inquiry that the attack was indeed a terrorist attack, O was on television - still pushing the Mohammad movie excuse. Arrogance, stupidity or desperation? (Pick “all of the above.”)
At any rate, “the most transparent administration in history” has finally been forced – if nothing else, out of embarrassment – to come clean – sort of. Many questions remain – and many answers are yet to come. Should make for great theater.
Can’t wait to watch the Regime twist in the wind.
