The drip, drip, drip of Benghazigate
The Obama Administration is in the throes of an ineptness seldom seen in national-level politics (even in Europe), the Benghazi debacle.
The CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington within 24 hours of last month’s deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate that there was evidence it was carried out by militants, not a spontaneous mob upset about an American-made video ridiculing Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, U.S. officials have told The Associated Press.
“Within 24 hours” could be less than an hour, although that seems a stretch. But it was in plenty of time to keep Susan Rice from repeating an Administration lie five separate times five days later (assuming they wanted to do so).
And since there was a video drone feed available, one might think the Obama Administration could connect the dots… unless the dot connection cut against their ‘We got al Qaida on the run’ narrative they’ve been pushing to voters.
Voters don’t like being lied to, especially when the Obama explanation is ‘What are you gonna believe, me or your lyin’ eyes?’
Similarly, don’t forget the tragically miscategorized—and thus misrepresented—“workplace violence” of Major Nidal Hasan (screaming “Allahu Akbar”) at Fort Hood, Texas where he’ll stand trial for killing 13, an unborn child, and wounding 29.
This will not end well for the Administration.
