That's pretty much the gist of it.

By fooled a dip shite you mean someone who knows how to read? Explain to me how the words act of terror don't mean act of terror?

re: Leaked: Obama told within 72 hours Benghazi was terrorist attack


he was still blaming the video 14 days later. Never said the word terror again, still blaming the video, if he thought it was an act of terror then why did he tell everyone to blame it on a video. Any other president would have been impeached by now.

The phrase 'acts of terror' was when he was speaking about 9/11.

He may have said the phrase in the Rose Garden speech but he didn't call Benghazi an act of terror.

He was speaking in general platitudes.

Even Candy Crowley disagrees with you.

Not the words son. It's the fact you believe he was using it to describe Benghazi. You got in line, like a good sheep would.

Let's suppose someone said "I love happy events. I would like to congratulate joe and Jill for their beautiful wedding. " you would assume the happy event being referred to was the wedding.

Obama said act of terror immediately followed by a sentence talking about Benghazi. Clearly the act of terror was a reference to Benghazi.

I'm starting to get more disgusted about this whole situation.

Had to fix that quote. This administration doesn't give a single hoot about truth.

It's almost like people are still surprised that Obama lied about this. That by itself is sad.

You should try reading something other than right wing websites. Here is the relevant paragraph.

quote:

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.


Unless you are claiming that something else happened that killed 4 americans, clearly the line following act of terror is a reference to Benghazi.

For all of you idiots, and there really is no other way to describe you, who are saying the act of terror line was in reference to 9-11. I suggest you reading the entire statement, you know the one called Remarks by the President on the Deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in Libya

I counted 9 paragraphs that referred to Libya, Benghazi, or the 4 people who died. Only one referred to 9-11 and it also had a reference to Benghazi. For anyone to claim the line an act of terror was a reference to anything other than the attack on the consulate is frankly partisan hackery at its finest.

proof that some of you lack the ability to read

By the way some other phrases the president used

quote:

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack.
quote:

And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.
quote:

But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

Yet he and others went on for weeks referring to it as a result of the video.

And in an interview right after the rose garden speech.
"Mr. President this morning you went out of your way not to refer to it as a terrorist attack"
And he doesn't deny such.

You can't talk reason to an obamabot.

The son of a bitch and his admin lied about it for weeks because the truth didn't fit in with their bull shite narrative that they "defeated" terrorism and the arab spring was all peaches and cream.

It would be like Penn State fans defending a pedophile just because he was on their team. It just looks pathetic and anyone with an IQ higher than 80 knows it.

post the speech in its entirety. My previous statement remains true.

As I said before, even Candy Crowley disagrees with you.

Highlighted in bold are the parts referring to Benghazi. I also italicized the piece referencing 9-11. See if you can find it.

By the way the reason 9-11 was even mentioned was to link it to the Benghazi attacks, you know pointing out they were both acts of terrorism. Otherwise it makes no sense to include it something called "remarks by the president on the deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in Libya"

quote:

Remarks by the President on the Deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in Libya

Rose Garden

10:43 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger.

Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We're working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

Already, many Libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens’s body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had died.

It's especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution, Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi. With characteristic skill, courage, and resolve, he built partnerships with Libyan revolutionaries, and helped them as they planned to build a new Libya. When the Qaddafi regime came to an end, Chris was there to serve as our ambassador to the new Libya, and he worked tirelessly to support this young democracy, and I think both Secretary Clinton and I relied deeply on his knowledge of the situation on the ground there. He was a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps.

Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. Today, the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on. I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who love them back home.

Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.

But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.

Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America.

END
10:48 A.M. EDT

No shite. I'm on record as coming to the conclusion that wavebreaker's sole purpose in life is to find anti-Obama crap on the internet (no matter how obscure the source) and post it.

Just to be clear your response is, "Derp Derp Derp. I can't read and actually respond to what is presented so I am just going to say someone else disagrees with you."
