EYES WILL ALSO BE ON O’S MEDIA LAPDOGS
Let me begin by stating the obvious: This would be a scandal of major – if not unprecedented – proportions were it to have occurred during the Bush Administration. Or any other Republican administration for that matter. This, of course, begs the obvious question: Will it become one now – or will the corrupt media continue its desperate attempt to shield the Regime as best it can?
That this question even needs to be asked is as stark an example of how far the media in America has fallen since the days of Walter Cronkite and Huntley and Brinkley. Hell – the left-leaning Peter Jennings would have even made sure that ABC News covered this story accurately, knowing full well that its journalistic integrity would have been at stake if it did not. Sadly, the liberal media lost its journalistic integrity years ago – so there is little hope that it will change its transparent stripes now.
Think about it. Mitt Romney was hammered by O’s sock puppets in the media virtually nonstop for days – if not weeks. But – those same sock puppets failed to even question the Regime’s obviously fabricated explanation, which began to unravel almost immediately.
Now, on the eve of a major Congressional hearing on the consulate terrorist attack, the Regime has made a desperately transparent attempt to get out ahead of the damaging news it knew would come out at the hearing. Last night, Team O finally spilled its guts:
In other words, absolutely everything we were told by the Regime – by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Regime Propaganda Minister Jay Carney, and countless other Regime minions – was 100% false. Translation: They lied.
It gets worse – or should I say more bizarre? In an astonishing attempt to ask us to suspend disbelief, the Regime also claimed it had never concluded that, a: the attack on the consulate was “spontaneous”, and, b: that it was prompted by an anti-Islam movie. Are these people incompetent, arrogant or both? Doesn’t matter, folks: Barack Obama will once again rely on the same two groups that always bail him out: Democrats who either don’t give a damn – as long as O is reelected – or are too stupid to pay attention to the corruption, and the ever-dutiful, liberal lapdog media.
Here’s O’s poodle, Jay Carney, after the attack:
“Based on the information that we have now, it was – there was a reaction to the video – there was protests in Cairo, then followed by protests elsewhere, including Benghazi, and that was what led to the original unrest.”
Five days after the attack – and four days after detailed intelligence information pointed to an al-Qaeda affiliate – the Regime trotted out U.N. Ambassador Rice to appear on the Sunday morning talk shows and continue the disinformation campaign:
“This Week, 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.”
Hillary Clinton had the disgraceful audacity – as is common for a Clinton – to continue the sham during the solemn ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base – with the flag-draped coffins of the four slain Americans as a backdrop:
“This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.”
Two full weeks after the attack, Barack Obama stood before the United Nations General Assembly and continued the charade:
“This video is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well. However, there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents and no video that justifies an attack on an embassy.”
These statements were patently false – if not outright lies. As Eli Lake reported in the Daily Beast, intelligence agencies were confiding within 24 hours of the attack that it appeared to be pre-planned. Intercepts showed that an al-Qaeda affiliate boasted of its success to another al-Qaeda group on Sept. 12. “There was very good information on this within the first 24 hours,” an intelligence official told Lake.
Furthermore, Hillary’s own State Department now says it did not believe the story that the Regime was telling. The Department says it never believed the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate was the result of a film protest gone awry. In an astonishing break with the Regime yesterday, a senior State Department official said in a statement that “others” in the executive branch concluded initially that the protest was based on the anti-Islam film:
“That was never our conclusion.”
Something stinks in the White House, folks. As I said at the top, were this scandal to have occurred during the Bush Administration, all hell would have broken loose. It would have dominated network and cable news. Talk of impeachment would be rampant. Talk of the resignation of the Secretary of State would abound as well.
While the liberal media will be required to at least provide lip service and minimal coverage of the Congressional hearings, I doubt that it will ask the hard questions – because there are no easy answers – or plausible explanations – for the Regime:
For days after the attack, the Regime said it would not speculate on whether it was a terrorist attack – insisting it would “wait until the investigation is complete.” How then, was it able to conclude immediately that the attack was not only “spontaneous” in nature – but the result of an anti-Islam film?
If the State Department never believed its boss’s determination that a “disgusting and reprehensible video” (Hillary’s words) was responsible for the attack – and that it also never believed the attack was “spontaneous” – why did its Secretary carry on with the charade?
What “information” did the Regime “have at present” that led Susan Rice to say on Sunday morning talk shows that the “current best assessment” was that the attack on the consulate was “a reaction to a video”?
And finally, the classic Watergate question: What did the president know, and when did he know it?
With the election less than four weeks away, things are about to get down and dirty. The question is – will the Regime and its surrogates in the media be able to hide the truth long enough to give O a fighting chance come November 6?
