Someone needs to find out exactly what our government knew about Benghazi, when they knew it and what they did about it. Benghazi-gate has reached a whole new level of horror. Not only do emails show that our government knew the attack was a terror attack, they knew in real time, and possibly did nothing about it.
The likelihood is that many in the press knew as well.
Internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News show that 300 – 400 national security figures knew about the attack on the Benghazi mission as it was playing out and ending. At least one email indicated that Ansar al Sharia, an al-Qaida affiliate, claimed responsibility for the attack while the attack was ongoing. The group took credit on Facebook and Twitter.
One member of al Sharia has been arrested in Tunisia.
The emails, sent by the State Department, were received by the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence. Others who received emails worked under the nation’s top national security, military, and diplomatic officials.
The government knew about the attack for seven hours. They did not appear to move available forces to save our people.
The President did not provide adequate security in Benghazi, he lied about every aspect of the attack for at least two weeks, and he appeared to do nothing to save the people in Benghazi while the attack was underway. In the end, despite his efforts to avoid it, he is responsible.
Obama lied to the American people from the Rose Garden and flew to Vegas for a fundraiser.
During the second debate he told Romney that he was offended at the accusation that anyone in his administration would cover it up.
The exact quote:
OBAMA: Secretary Clinton has done an extraordinary job. But she works for me. I’m the president and I’m always responsible, and that’s why nobody’s more interested in finding out exactly what happened than I do.
The day after the attack, governor, I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened. That this was an act of terror and I also said that we’re going to hunt down those who committed this crime.
And then a few days later, I was there greeting the caskets coming into Andrews Air Force Base and grieving with the families.
And the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the Secretary of State, our U.N. Ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, governor, is offensive. That’s not what we do. That’s not what I do as president, that’s not what I do as Commander in Chief.
Listen to the president pretend he is taking responsibility while he deceitfully plays politics and attacks Romney:
Four men are dead! Four men gave their lives for their country, perhaps needlessly. Two of these men sacrificed their lives to save the Ambassador and Sean Smith. Why aren’t they being lauded? Another hero tried to save them and was seriously wounded. Where is his medal and his accolades? Instead we hear lies, lies, and more lies!
Does it make you wonder who else might have died for no reason? We would never be told.
Certainly the victims of Ft. Hood were needless victims. They should have been armed. They were soldiers on an army base without guns while being gunned down by a Jihadist madman. Our president will not even give them the honors they deserve as victims of combat. He calls that “workplace violence.”
I have had enough.
I personally believe that Governor Romney did not go after the Libyan situation last night at the third debate because he knew this bombshell was coming.
