The White House knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack within 24 hours of 9/11 … [Darleen Click]
Why did it take a until last week before anyone in the White House would admit it and toady Robert Gibbs started making excuses?
Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. Three separate U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.
Nonetheless, it took until late last week for the White House and the administration to formally acknowledge that the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack. On Sunday, Obama adviser Robert Gibbs explained the evolving narrative as a function of new information coming in quickly on the attacks. “We learned more information every single day about what happened,” Gibbs said on Fox News. “Nobody wants to get to the bottom of this faster than we do.”
Susan Rice was out on the Sunday shows doing her snarling best to Blame the film-maker.
Yesterday, at the U.N. Obama came up with the jaw-dropping statement, among a lot of other disturbing statements,
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
… and also continued to refuse to call Benghazi a terrorist attack.
Whether deliberate cover-up or blatant incompetency, the Media would never have let President Bush get the pass the Obama-leg-humpers are doing today.
