#rsrh *Somebody* in this adminstration lied to the American people about the Libyan Embassy attack.

Who.
Was.
It?

Let me summarize this bombshell from the Daily Beast – and yes, the term ‘bombshell’ qualifies:

Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. Three separate U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.

If this is true, then one of two things happened: either UN Ambassador Susan Rice lied to the American people the Sunday after the attack

“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”

…or Barack Obama lied to our Ambassador to the United Nations.  Take your pick; it’s one or the other.

PS: If Susan Rice is the liar, the Obama White House colluded in that lie by remaining silent.

    Since subsequently, Obama repeated the same lie on Univision later in the week and then again on the view. I am taking the third view. That Obama and Rice are incompetent and chose to disbelieve the intelligence or Obama missed it in the cliffs notes version because he skipped the briefings to go to Vegas and then to New York to hang out with Jay-Z and Beyonce because he’s cool and all. See Moe there is a third option.

    It’s good to be a cat, tnfriend .. I get four paws, not just three.

    The fourth option, of course, is that nobody actually *told* Obama what’s going on… they just tell him what to say, he goes out and says it.

    If this sounds familiar, it’s what the Libs said about Bush 2.0 .. “he’s Cheney’s hand puppet”.

    We now know absolutely the Obama Administration lied. But the question the press is not asking is why did the Obama Administration lie about the Benghazi attack?

  • Finrod says:

    Sadly: Obama, people Obama hired are liars, film at 11.

  • qixlqatl says:

    @acat: Sooooo…. Obama is Biden’s hand puppet…? That…. makes sense, actually.

  • Murgatroyd says:

    Or … Perhaps there’s a Pollyanna polish for this. >i>Maybe Obama and Rice were never told what was known about the Benghazi attack, because the people whose lives were on the line didn’t trust the White House to not say something damaging or to not put our intelligence assets in danger. Consider this: there’s no way Barack Obama would ever survive the sort of background check he’d need to get a TS clearance. The White House is known to leak like a sieve. So why trust any of them with important information?
