Burning questions

Lies pile atop lies in administration's explanation of attacks in Libya

  • Follow Editorials

When does presidential malfeasance become a scandal? Answer: Probably at the point where something bad has happened and no amount of explanations over several weeks seems to answer the questions or, sometimes, even make sense.

By that standard, the Obama administration’s juvenile and contradiction-filled changing explanations over the lack of security at the Libyan embassy, and just what took place there that led to the deaths of four Americans, is a fully involved barnburner of a scandal.

First, understand that it is now known, despite repeated protestations to the contrary, that the Obama administration was well aware early on that information pointed to a planned and coordinated al-Qaida-style terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi Sept. 11 that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others.

Nonetheless, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice went on television with firm assurances days later that information indicated the attack was a spontaneous protest over an anti-Muslim video on the Internet. White House spokesman Jay Carney did too.

And now the administration not only admits none of it is true – and that it was a terrorist attack – but also says it never said the video was the likely culprit. Even though they said it all on camera.

“It’s pretty clear the State Department, now caught in a lie, is responding with yet another lie,” a Republican foreign policy adviser told The Washington Post.

Moreover, officials now admit there wasn’t even a protest outside the embassy before it was attacked.

Did the Kremlin take over the White House? Isn’t this a Soviet Union-style set of bald-faced lies and fairy tales?

In addition, information has revealed that embassy personnel practically begged for increased security well in advance of the attack, and that the requests were denied.

“The State Department,” wrote the Washington Post, “acknowledged Wednesday that it rejected appeals for more security at its diplomatic posts in Libya in the months before

a fatal terrorist attack in Benghazi.”

Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, formerly involved in security at the
embassy, said security there was “weak.”

“The security in Benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there,”he told a congressional panel. “Diplomatic security remained weak.”

Eric Nordstrom, a former regional security officer, twice asked for more security and was ignored by the Obama administration. Nordstrom termed security there “inappropriately low.”

Some are suggesting the Obama administration avoided security infrastructure and manpower in order to provide an appearance
of “normalization” of relations and of the security situation. But there were repeated incidents in the months leading up to the attack.

It seems clear enough now that the attack on Sept. 11 was planned to coincide with the anniversary of the 2001 attacks on America – and that the Obama administration was wholly unprepared.

Then, in the aftermath, the administration has repeatedly lied through its teeth – not only about what it believed was behind the Libyan embassy attack, but also – unbelievably – about having said it to begin with.

They’re hoping the media will move on, that you’re not smart enough to smell a lie that’s put right in front of your nose, and that they can kick this scandal past the Nov. 6 election.

It’s hard to remember more blatant lies coming out of a government in this country.

The level of truth telling at the White House appears to be the same as the level of security in Benghazi:

Inappropriately low.

Many times I wished President

Many times I wished President Obama was a Republican. This way his many acts of malfeasance (or at the very least - incompetence) would be front page and leading news in the main stream media each and every day until a majority of the public and congress demanded something be done.

Even as rabidly partisan as the news media has become over the past few decades, and as bad as I feared it may become, I never imagined the extent of “blind eyes” currently infecting our media.

This has been in the works for a very long time

The decent people of this Country have been lied to so much, from all sides, they can't tell today what is right and what is wrong. Again, God warned us of this "They shall make wrong seem right and the just seem unjust." This Country has become confused. We don't know which direction we want to go. We don't know who we can and can't trust. There are so many people on all sides of the political spectrum that seem to have a blind devotion to their reprensentatives. But I would ask all people, can you really trust the politicians you vote for? Can you trust anyone? They all lie for political gain, and now days we just laugh it off and say "Oh well, thats politics."

Are we really at the point where we accept it and go about our business? If so, it's not their fault, its ours!! Our "representatives", on a large scale are corrupt from top to bottom. Meaning, from the lowest level (small towns and cities) to the massive federal government. We see examples of it every single day in our newpapers and cable new networks. The problem is, most people are just to busy in their "normal" everydays lives to care all that much. This is EXACTLY what makes it so easy for them to lie to us, and GET AWAY WITH IT!! People are honestly just trying to live peaceful, happy lives. They don't want to see, much less accept that our Country is in decline, our leaders are lying to us and have been for MANY years. It's blissful innocence, they are just doing the "fun" thing or the "family" thing, but it's killing the Country.

This is also going on in massive scale in our Churches. The Church in Lincolnton was a recent example. The "Leaders" of our Churches are failing us, just as the elected representatives are. There are massive corruption allegations at the Southern Bible Institute in Augusta. It's going on EVERYWHERE. People are deceiving us and we allow it to happen. Church members sticking by their "Pastors" even when the evidence is overwhelming of their guilt. People still voting for politicians when they can plainly see they have been lying to us. Our leaders are liars and are failing us. Lucifer has done his job very well. He is referred to as the "King of Babylon" in the Bible. Babylon in the ancient Hebrew means "Confusion". He is the King of Confusion and he is a MASTER at it. Wow, is he good!!! But he will lose and Truth, Intregrity, Honor and Love shall be restored. Just make sure you are part of it. Trust in God, not in MAN!! He is the ONLY one we can truly trust and He shall prove it very soon!!

As I posted yesterday there

As I posted yesterday there are only two conclusions that can be drawn from The Obama administration response. First, Obama didn't care and instead of seeking the answers chose to respond in ignorance. Second, knowing the truth the Obama administration chose to lie! Neither is a good choice!

Did Anyone See

the interview on FOX News last night of Pat Smith whose son was killed in the embassy attack. "Unbelievable"

To this day she has not been told anything about how her son was killed.

The only comments she receives from the King and everybody involved, Rice, Clinton, etc is "We will let you know as soon as we know what happened"

Talk about a total lack of respect from so called Americans for only the purpose of a VOTE.........sick beyond words....

I do not understand the
Unpublished

I do not understand the problem that the person has with the ACES, if anything they are covering for Obama. The reason he does not really care those people were killed is because they are Christian Americans, the very people Obama wants to die as the good muslim he is. Just take a look at his policies and what the eventual results of those policies will be, the downfall of the United States, exactly what Obama wants. We have been invaded, just as a superior culture can be infected by less sophisticated societys, we have been infected by the progressive liberal movement. If we do not eliminate this threat we will see the end of our culture and way of life, liberals are a stain on any decent society and should not be allowed to hold any position of power and probably should not be allowed to breed in any large numbers. If they would stick to saving owls and hugging trees and let true Americans, the conservatives, run the country we could get back on track. A vote for Obama is the same as voting for sharia law, it is coming if we do not stop it.

Sick Beyond Words!

George, the VOTE is all that matters. Should Romney win the upcoming election, there will still be incidents where he shovels manure to the public in order to cover his butt. It's just the way it is. It's truly sick beyond words. Jimmy Carter was probably the most honest President of the past century, and the political establishment and voters chewed him up. So it goes!

Carcraft asked Shrimp for

Carcraft asked Shrimp for Breakfast...."Shrimp for breakfast what is the chronicle making up?"

Shrimp's response...."Everything carcraft. anything to suit their agenda."

That response isn't explanatory. Let's try again....Exactly what printed in this editiorial is a false statement? Please be specific...the answer everything really is a cop-out when you have no point to stand on.

Truth is, the Obama Administration knew and denied extra security to the Ebassy which is unbelievable since it was the anniversary of 9/11. Truth is, the Obama Administration lied to the American people concerning this attack being a terrorist attack or over some movie clip protest. Truth is the Obama Administration is still lying about it when the VP lied on national television during the debate when he said they did not know......please respond in like kind with your assessment of how the AC is lying.

From the BBC: Iraq continues

From the BBC:

Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward America and to support terror.

President Bush in his State of the Union address, January 2002. The speech was primarily concerned with how the US was coping in the aftermath of 11 September.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We also must never forget the most vivid events of recent history. On 11 September, 2001, America felt its vulnerability - even to threats that gather on the other side of the earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat, from any source, that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America.

President Bush speaking in Cincinnati, Ohio, in October, 2002, in which he laid out the threat he believed Iraq posed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before 11 September 2001, many in the world believed that Saddam Hussein could be contained. But chemical agents and lethal viruses and shadowy terrorist networks are not easily contained. Imagine those 19 hijackers with other weapons, and other plans - this time armed by Saddam Hussein. It would take just one vial, one canister, one crate slipped into this country to bring a day of horror like none we have ever known.

President Bush in his State of the Union address, January 2003. He made these comments in the context of the links he perceived between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The terrorists have lost a sponsor in Iraq. And no terrorist networks will ever gain weapons of mass destruction from Saddam Hussein's regime.

President Bush in his speech to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, September, 2003.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For America, there will be no going back to the era before 11 September 2001, to false comfort in a dangerous world. We have learned that terrorist attacks are not caused by the use of strength.

They are invited by the perception of weakness. And the surest way to avoid attacks on our own people is to engage the enemy where he lives and plans.

We are fighting that enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan today so that we do not meet him again on our own streets, in our own cities.

President Bush in a televised address to defend his administration's policy on Iraq, September 2003.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We've learned that Iraq has trained al-Qaeda members in bomb-making and poisons and deadly gases. And we know that after 11 September, Saddam Hussein's regime gleefully celebrated the terrorist attacks on America.

Some citizens wonder, after 11 years of living with this problem, why do we need to confront it now? And there's a reason. We've experienced the horror of 11 September.

US Secretary of State Colin Powell in a presentation to the UN Security Council, setting out the US case against the Iraqi regime, February 2003.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We don't know.

Vice-President Dick Cheney when pressed on whether there was a link between Iraq and 11 September during a TV interview, September 2003.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We will have struck a major blow right at the heart of the base, if you will, the geographic base of the terrorists who've had us under assault now for many years, but most especially on 9/11.

Mr Cheney in the same interview, commenting on the war against Iraq.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We've never been able to develop any more of that yet, either in terms of confirming it or discrediting it.

Mr Cheney in the same interview, while recounting the controversial claim that one of the hijackers, Mohammed Atta, met an Iraqi official in Prague before the attacks.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Saddam Hussein posed a risk in] a region from which the 9/11 threat emerged.

You can deny it and bury your head in the sand and use any form of reasoning to feed your denial but just because they could not find these weapons of mass destruction, does not mean they never existed. For years and by many individuals, not just republicans but also democrates, politicians, and military personnel, believe that these weapons have and do exist, and they either do or will have soon, the capability to use them. But if denial makes you feel safer, by all means, you have the right to be nescient.

US citizens need to see "blood" before they will rally to war. Politicians are very much aware of this "trigger".

Ramp up the flag production, role out the "arse kicking country music", load up those transports with fresh troops, defend American soil in the Middle East desert and bring American democracy to the entire world.

It only takes two to form a conspiracy and only one to deceive.

Techfan, why don't you ask

Techfan, why don't you ask thousands of Kurds if Sadddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Oh, I'm sorry you can't ask them because they are DEAD. He used chemical weapons on Kurdish villages that killed every man, woman, child, animal or any other living organism within minutes of the bomb expolding over the villages.

Techfan Every intelligence

Techfan Every intelligence agency in the world believed Iraq had weapons of mass destruction! So did our current Secretary Of State! If your state what you believe to be the truth without intention to deceive then it isn't a lie it is ignorance! When people believed you got sick from "bad "air from swamps it was because there was no better explaination! On Friday the 14th of Sept the leader of Libya said there were no demonstrations and this was a terrorist attack! On Sunday 16 Sept Rice went to every talk show and spouted the video /demonstration BS! Then on the 25th Sept Obama spouted they same video BS at the UN. IN sworn congressional testimony Lamb said there was real time security camera footage and drone footage of what went on! There were blog entries from one of those killed with no mention of demonstrations! So where die Obama get his data? Why was Obama kept in ignorance for 11days? Need I go on?

Meanwhile, you on the ACES seem perfectly happy

that Rep. Paul Broun, young-Earth creationist, is on the House science committee and is running unopposed.

I offer myself as a protest vote:

Well, beside claiming a

Well, beside claiming a budget shortfall, who's going to take responsibility for this disaster/tragedy?

Obama? (4 more years) Or St. Dept./Ms. Clinton? (I'm in charge, here).

Someone's going to get thrown under the bus, but will she take it?

I think it's important

I think it's important to note the date of this attack. September 11th. This should bring to mind the biggest intellegence failure our generation will ever know- September 11th, 2001. Nearly 3000 people died in an attack that occurred on American soil, under former President Bush.

It is opeds like this that has led me to dub the Augusta Chronicle as the Chronic Crank.
