What are the priorities of the liberal media?
Donald Sterling’s nasty attitude is, apparently, the greatest crisis facing America.
But Obama’s bold-faced lies about the attack on the American consulate in Libya and the murders of four courageous Americans, U.S. Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens. Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, is relegated to, well, nothingness.
The smoking gun has, at last been revealed. White House Emails reveal what we have long suspected: that Obama’s White House knowingly lied about the terrorist attack, blaming it on a dopey video that no one ever saw and no one has ever seen. The White House did this during Obama’s reelection campaign to give the impression that Obama’s policies in regards to the IslamoNazi threat, was successful.
The CIA station chief in Libya informed his superiors that there was no protest before the coordinated attack on the consulate in Benghazi in September 2012.
But Susan Rice was briefed and rehearsed on the false narrative by Ben Rhodes, an Obama hack. Susan Rice then told five different news organizations that the Benghazi attack started as a protest about a YouTube video.
Here’s a little drill that should help even the most partisan Democrat see this issue in another light: Imagine if the Benghazi atrocity happened under a Republican administration.
It would be front page news endlessly. And every investigative reporter would be chasing the Pulitzer with tales of government ineptitude and the massive cover-up that, no doubt, reaches all the way to Barack Obama.
But two questions that should be posed are absent from the liberal media: What did Obama know, and when did he know it?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Previously unreleased internal Obama administration emails show that a coordinated effort was made in the days following the Benghazi terror attacks to portray the incident as “rooted in [an] Internet video, and not [in] a broader failure or policy.”
Emails sent by senior White House adviser Ben Rhodes to other top administration officials reveal an effort to insulate President Barack Obama from the attacks that killed four Americans.
Rhodes sent this email to top White House officials such as David Plouffe and Jay Carney just a day before National Security Adviser Susan Rice made her infamous Sunday news show appearances to discuss the attack.
The “goal,” according to these emails, was “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”
Rice came under fierce criticism following her appearances on television after she adhered to these talking points and blamed the attack on a little-watched Internet video.
The newly released internal White House e-mails show that Rice’s orders came from top Obama administration communications officials.
