Obama and his people tried to portray this attack, where 4 Americans died, let's not forget that, as a reaction, however impromptu, to a video. This in a country where 98% of the people don't even have the means to watch the video. Obama, Rice, Petreus, et al did this because to tell the truth, i.e. that Al Qaeda is once again ascendant and that they want us out of the Middle East, would have gone against the spin of the Obama campaign which was that Al Qaeda is on the run thanks to Obama. Obama, Rice, Petreus, et al hid the truth from the American people to ensure Obama's re-election. They’re still hiding the truth; still obfuscating and the media are doing their part to help.
This isn’t about politics for me. You weren’t around here for the first Gulf war, but I said then that the WMD stuff was a ruse, a pretense, and that Bush and Colin Powell were lying to the American people. I took a lot of heat from the conservatives on this board, but I was proved to be right. I’m right about this too. This is even more obivious than the situation in 2003. I can't for the life of me figure out why you're trying so hard to knight for a bunch of rich politicians who are clearly lying to the American people.
I repeat my quote from earlier: The first casualty of war is the truth.
