President Obama has misled the American people about the terrorist attack on our Ambassador and his team in Benghazi, Libya, and now it is clear that the mainstream media has helped him hide the truth.
After weeks of claiming that an Internet video was the impetuous for the attack on our consulate in Libya that resulted in the murder of our Ambassador and three other Americans, the Obama Administration finally admitted that terrorists were responsible for the attack. Then at the second presidential debate, President Obama claimed that he had called it a terrorist attack on the day after the attack occurred.
CBS News has now released more excerpts of an interview conducted on the day after the terrorist attack where President Obama clearly refuses to call the attack a terrorist attack when asked point blank. CBS News held this information for weeks, and only now has released the complete interview.
CBS unveiled additional footage from its 60 Minutes interview with President Obama, conducted on Sep. 12 immediately after Obama had made his statement about the attacks in the Rose Garden, in which Obama quite clearly refuses to call the Benghazi an act of terror when asked a direct question by reporter Steve Kroft:
“KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?”
“OBAMA: Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.”
We know that the White House was informed in real time that an Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist group was responsible for the terrorist attack on our Ambassador, and yet the Obama Administration misled the American people.
It is disappointing that President Obama has misled the American people and even more disheartening that the press has aided in the cover-up. It is time for the truth to finally come out about what happened in this terrorist attack.
You’ve seen it all over the news, seemingly every day for months now – successful jihadist terror attacks around the world and foiled plots just down the street, like the one my colleague Matthew Clark recently described , where the FBI arrested a jihadist who lived just streets away from where we...
It’d be laughable if the consequences weren’t so deadly. Yesterday, during Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention, during 61 different speeches given from the podium in Philadelphia, ISIS and radical jihadist terrorism was not mentioned at all – not one reference. As Christians are...
With the “attack in Nice, France” that left 84 people dead and scores injured, we are again pointedly reminded that we are at war. Whether or not it is a declared war or if the Obama Administration acknowledges that we are at war, the facts speak for themselves. About every two weeks a jihadist...
Once again, the terrorists have attacked France. The carnage is ghastly. Last night, a terrorist attack ripped through Nice, France on Bastille Day – France’s independence day – slaughtering more than 84 people (including two Americans). Dozens more are injured as the death toll continues to rise.
