While the left is furiously masturbating to the fact that they caught the fat guy from Jersey – a once friend of the liberal media, that is, until it became time to steam roll him in preparation for the next election the media needs to make sure is won by democrats – in some scandal, the many real ones by Team Blue and the Obama administration, go ignored. Especially the stuff that might hurt Hillary, the next presidential hopeful on the left, so I am not surprised to find that the only source pointing out the WH lied about Benghazi is again Fox News.
Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a “terrorist attack,” declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president’s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.
Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time was head of AFRICOM, the Defense Department combatant command with jurisdiction over Libya, told the House in classified testimony last year that it was him who broke the news about the unfolding situation in Benghazi to then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The tense briefing — in which it was already known that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens had been targeted and had gone missing — occurred just before the two senior officials departed the Pentagon for their session with the commander in chief.
That’s the same General Ham that according to the left, was only fired because of something else! Can we now at least admit that like Patraeus, there really might have been an ulterior motive by this WH for getting rid of these people? That firing guaranteed Ham would have to remain silent on the facts or risk prosecution. And we all know how eager this administration that loves to make deals with America’s enemies, really has it out for those it sees as its enemies (a.k.a anyone that actually doesn’t like what they are doing to America). Anyway, back to the revelations:
Also among those whose secret testimony was declassified was Dempsey, the first person Ham briefed about Benghazi. Ham told lawmakers he considered it a fortuitous “happenstance” that he was able to rope Dempsey and Panetta into one meeting, so that, as Ham put it, “they had the basic information as they headed across for the meeting at the White House.” Ham also told lawmakers he met with Panetta and Dempsey when they returned from their 30-minute session with President Obama on Sept. 11.
So I think the question, after we find out that the WH, despite the bullshit and lies to obfuscate the truth, got the right information, and immediately, without a shadow of doubt, should be why they told that blatant lie about the video being the reason for the attack, and more importantly, tried so hard to pretend it wasn’t terrorists. Again from the Fox News piece:
Numerous aides to the president and then-Secretary of State Hillary 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, but rather were the result of a protest gone awry. Subsequent disclosures exposed the falsity of that narrative, and the Obama administration ultimately acknowledged that its early statements on Benghazi were untrue.
If the LSM had any shred of decency and actually was into providing news instead of shilling for the fucking DNC, they would drop the bullshit with the fat man and focus on this. Of course, the answer to why it won’t happen is simple: they need to provide cover for their man – actually in this case, their woman – and thus we will spend countless days on a bullshit story about traffic jams being a scandal while a real scandal, one where the WH not only lied about the reason/cause, the participants, their role, and what happened, but then proceeded to double down on the obfuscation and manipulation of the truth, so they wouldn’t have to deal with the political fallout.
As I already have mentioned on numerous times: Nixon got railroaded for far less shit than the criminals in this administration have gotten away with. And the sad thing is that we have the knowledge that they are covering up so many scandals, but the left can’t be bothered. Never let a sanctimonious progtard preach to you about right and wrong: they are full of shit and they know it. Especially the ones that try the hardest to play innocent and pretend that the problem isn’t with them but with you for being so mean to them.
We have gone beyond the point of pointing out that the left is morally bankrupt. Let’s not pretend otherwise. Civil discourse is no longer possible with people that have only one standard: to win at all costs. At this point I am sad to say that we have to call them out on their shit and play hardball. If we do not stop them there will be no country left worth saving. I admit that I secretly hoped that whatever screwball the left put in office would vindicate my knowledge that for all his faults, Boosh, a guy I think was a mediocre president at best, couldn’t stoop to the depts of stupid, evil, incompetence and destructiveness that this person would reach. The age of Obama has gone so far beyond my expectations of showing the world how terrible the left really is that I am now actually wishing it was otherwise.
