In the months just prior to the 2012 presidential election, Barack Obama and Hillary “What does it matter” Clinton committed a triple atrocity for which they have yet to be held accountable: (1) they failed to protect Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, who were murdered by Islamic Jihadists on September 11th 2012, and then (2) they and their surrogates lied to the American people about the nature of the attack and who knew what and when about it, and then (3) they withheld emails from Congress in order to sustain the coverup indefinitely.
A dead Ambassador dragged though the streets and a willful, deceitful cover-up in order to help Obama defeat Romney. And let’s not forget how the Liberal-controlled media aided and abetted these Obama lies (remember Candy Crowley supporting Obama mid-debate against Romney’s strong and correct attack about Benghazi?).
But now the coverup is exposed and Barack Obama is having his Stained Blue Dress moment.
Judicial Watch just broke through the Obama administration secrecy and discovered a smoking-gun email that shines the truth on another of Obama’s Big Lies:
In the email, Obama’s deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes tells Susan Rice — then the U.S. envoy to the United Nations — to blame the attack on local anger in Benghazi over an anti-Muslim video on the Internet.
It has since become clear the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the mission — which cost the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens — was planned by armed militants. In the email, obtained by Judicial Watch and dated Sept. 14, 2012, Rhodes laid out talking points and goals for Rice in her planned appearances on several major U.S. talk shows the next day.
She was asked “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, not a broader failure of policy.” <source>
So not only did a U.S. Ambassador and three others get killed by Islamic militants on the anniversary of 9/11/01, but Obama and his team knew about it, did nothing to help, and then willfully lied about the tragedy’s true causes for fear that Americans would see the truth about Obama’s weakness around the world. They concocted a completely false story for Susan Rice to feed to the Sunday talk shows in which the successful terrorist attack was portrayed as a “spontaneous” gathering of protestors who had good reason to want to protest (an anti-Islam video had recently aired).
This fake narrative immediately fell under severe scrutiny and didn’t last long — John McCain openly mocked it on the Senate floor, saying that a spontaneous mob doesn’t attack a U.S. mission with RPGs and other weapons. He was right, and everyone knew it before long.
Even Liberals at the time came to admit that the video controversy was not related to the Benghazi attack and that Islamic militants were behind it. But they could not go the final, crucial step and admit that Barack Obama and his team created and executed a coverup to hide their un-American actions.
Their reluctance to go that final step was no doubt bolstered by the administration’s standard contempt-of-Congress failure to disclose all relevant documents, just as they have done in the Fast and Furious Congressional hearings:
Congress launched hearings and thousands of documents were turned over, but the email from Rhodes had not been revealed, despite requests from the House of Representatives.
That’s right, the smoking gun email was deliberately withheld by the Obama administration. I wonder what we will come to learn about Obama’s gun-running to Mexican drug cartels when those emails finally see the light of day.
And so now there can be no doubt and no defense: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and many others, are guilty of taking Al Qaeda lightly and of covering up their dereliction after the fact. Barack Hussein Obama and his Benghazi-blue dress bear a striking resemblance to Bill Clinton as he was caught in his own Big Lie at the time: “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky”.
The analogy is powerful because in both cases the crimes of the perpetrators were being covered up under the cover of accusations of Republican bad faith, and in both cases it turns out that Republicans were doing their sworn duty in exposing the actual facts of presidential derelictions of duty, and possibly crimes.
Hillary Clinton claimed that her husband did not have sex with Lewinsky and that therefore he was a victim of a “vast right wing conspiracy” against him.
Likewise, Obama spokesman Jay Carney has made considerable use of the false notion that Republican lawmakers are pursuing the Benghazi coverup based on fantasies instead of apparent facts. But Carney doesn’t know when to quit (in more ways than one): even now, after the email, he is sticking to this anti-Republican narrative.
Carney likened the new outcry to more Republican “conspiracy theories” about the Benghazi attack. <source>
Note to Jay Carney: The jig is up on this one and now you just look like a criminal defending the leader of your criminal gang. Resign your post, man, before your soul is lost forever to the Dark Side. How long can you keep lying like this?
Representative Darrell Issa sums up the Benghazi Email about as well as can be done:
It is disturbing and perhaps criminal that these documents, that documents like these were hidden by the Obama administration. The American people have learned that you cannot believe what the White House says, you cannot believe what the spokespeople say, and you cannot believe what the president says.
The facts are coming out that in fact, this administration has knowingly withheld documents pursuant to congressional subpoenas in violation of any reasonable transparency or historical precedent, at least since Richard Milhous Nixon.
Yes, Richard M. Nixon, who resigned the presidency in disgrace, though no one died in the Watergate scandal.
