Senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled country about Benghazi



per the Weekly Standard in this article.

quote:

Even as the White House strove last week to move beyond questions about the Benghazi attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2012, fresh evidence emerged that senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled the country about what had happened in the days following the assaults. The Weekly Standard has obtained a timeline briefed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence detailing the heavy substantive revisions made to the CIA’s talking points, just six weeks before the 2012 presidential election, and additional information about why the changes were made and by whom.

As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows.

I knew they were lying despite any evidence to surface. Sadly I don't believe The WH and staff will ever see penalties for those lies and cover ups.

re: Senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled country about Benghazi


Weren't we trying to hide a covert CIA operation? We had told the Libyan's we had no CIA spies in the area.

Dr. David Petraeus, was CIA Director and former Four-Star General, U.S. Army.

"more than thirty evacuated. Only seven of those evacuated did not work for the CIA. According to a Wall Street Journal story, other government agencies complained about being left "largely in the dark about the CIA's role," with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton telephoning Petraeus directly the night of the attacks seeking assistance. Although the "State Department believed it had a formal agreement with the CIA to provide backup security," "the CIA didn't have the same understanding about its security responsibilities," said the Wall Street Journal article on November 1, 2012, 9:05 p.m. ET. "CIA Takes Heat for Role in Libya"

This is an excuse for lying about the cause of the attack, the identity of the attackers and arresting someone because of a film?

Similar to what the Bush administration did in Iraq huh?

Only not nearly as many people died and it didn't cost us a trillion dollars.

I am shocked by this revelation. It will be a cricket worthy piece on maybe a few news sites.

Just remember the talking points or a variation thereof: Bush started it, Bush's fault, Bush did something similar, etc.

But the Dems were all-in on Iraq, except when they saw their chance to make it political..Don't think Benghazi had that switch, as it has smelled from the beginning..

re: Senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled country about Benghazi


The "Bush lied" meme is a pure crock; what really put us in Iraq was the horrific pictures of Saddam's use of WMD the Kurd people. The rest was window dressing; and had we knew then what we know now in regard to what Muslim nations who are 'liberated' will do with their freedom...we'd have whacked Saddam and walked out of that s-hole with little to no damage re blood and treasure.

That's the deal. Progressives are liars in the mold of the Third Reich propagandists; Obama lies to PROMOTE his Socialist ideology...if GW or Reagan lie...it's to promote Capitalism and Freedom.

Obama lied re Benghazi to win election. He lied to pass ObamaCare. He lies about Fast n Furious. He lied about gay marriage. And anybody that supports the man...is more apt to lie to themselves and us, to promote their Authoritarian Socialist cause.

Lies don't translate into power but for a time. Even the liars know that 'power comes from the barrel of a gun'.

I'm watching Fox news Sunday. Appears the Dems are going to lie, distract, and continue to act like a-holes (referring to this Rep. Lynch from MA).

This Congressman Chavez(sp?) from Utah seems like a pretty good guy.

re: Senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled country about Benghazi


I'm sure that they lied for political purposes and I think this needs to be revealed. I do not believe there will be any results that will have an immediate impact. However, I HOPE that revealing any lies will plant seeds for future voters and the MSM that will cause them to sour on ALL of our government's nonsense.

By "all" I mean both parties.

re: Senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled country about Benghazi


Here's all you need to know about the Weekly Standard's article:

quote:

The Weekly Standard is an American neoconservative[2][3][4][5] opinion magazine[6] published 48 times per year. Its founding publisher, News Corporation, debuted the title September 18, 1995. Currently edited by founder William Kristol and Fred Barnes, the Standard has been described as a "redoubt of neoconservatism" and as "the neo-con bible".[7][8] Since it was founded in 1995, the Weekly Standard has never been profitable, and has remained in business through subsidies from wealthy conservative benefactors such as former owner Rupert Murdoch.[9
