President Obama is being exposed as the biggest liar and because of his consistent and devious deception, Americans are the biggest losers.
On the heels of his premeditated lies about ObamaCare – you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor, health insurance prices will go down – we now find out that according to recently declassified documents, defense officials considered the incident in Benghazi as a terrorist attack from the very beginning.
From the Daily Mail:
Pentagon officials knew almost immediately that the attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya, on 9-11-2012 was a terrorist attack and not a demonstration gone wrong, declassified documents have shown.
The documents – which were obtained by Fox News and contain 450 pages of top secret testimonies about the attack – has proven the Obama administration lied about the cause of the attack for two weeks afterward, having repeatedly maintained it was sparked by a violent demonstration against an anti-Islamic movie.
General Carter Ham, whose responsibility included Libya at the time of the attack, promptly told General Dempsey and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that the assault at the consulate in Benghazi was a “terrorist attack.” The two Pentagon officials met with President Obama shortly after.
However the declassification of the documents proves the Obama administration were not divulging details of the attack to the American people.
Numerous aides to the president and Clinton repeatedly told the public in the weeks following the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans that night – as Obama’s hotly contested bid for re-election was entering its final stretch – that there was no evidence the killings were the result of a premeditated terrorist attack.
So there we have it. Our top defense officials knew it was a terrorist attack and Obama was briefed on the matter.
For weeks after the attack the Obama administration, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, mislead Americans by claiming the attack was spontaneous because of an anti-Islamic video.
It’s disgusting that we were lied to and even more disgusting that Panetta remained silent, allowing Obama to mislead the nation.
