Obama’s lies are catching up with him, obama and his administration are changing their story on the Embassy attacks. They first reported the attacks were spontaneous, and unexpected but with the Libyan government coming out and telling the truth, obama had to change his story.
The Libyan government is saying the attacks were premeditated and entirely separate from the furor over the “Innocence of Muslims” In fact, Fox News has an intelligence source who maintains “there was no major protest in Benghazi before the deadly attack which killed four Americans.”
Libyan president Mohammed el-Megarif has been growing rather irritated about the narrative put forth by the Obama Administration. In an NPR interview, he went as far as saying, “The idea that this criminal and cowardly act was a spontaneous protest that just spun out of control is completely unfounded and preposterous. We firmly believe that this was a pre-calculated, preplanned attack that was carried out specifically to attack the U.S. Consulate.”
Megarif says the attack was orchestrated by foreigners with al-Qaeda ties, who infiltrated his country and recruited Libyan assistance. The scale of the attack, involving something like 150 terror operatives equipped with serious firepower and rocket-propelled grenades, argues rather strongly against the “spontaneous protest” storyline.
So do the increasing, and disturbing, reports that the State Department was warned up to 48 hours in advance to expect violence. The UK Independent says it has “reported diplomatic sources who said that the threat of an attack against US interests in the region was known to the US administration 48 hours before it took place.” The White House has repeatedly denied this report, but it uses rather specific denials about receiving “actionable intelligence,” which are not wholly incompatible with the Libyans’ assertions that they reported a more general threat against American interests.
Wake up people, this is a huge wake up call…
Obama is having to admit his and the administrations lies, they knew trouble was coming on September 11, in both Egypt and Libya. Negligence by the White House and State Department had deadly consequences in the latter case, which makes it easy to understand why they clung so tightly to the “spontaneous protest spiraling out of control” narrative during the turbulent hours of the initial news cycle. But was it ever reasonable to believe that all of this came as a total surprise to the entire intelligence and diplomatic apparatus of the U.S. government?
