The Anatomy of a Lie

By David French1368199779000

We know that the Administration’s early talking points about the Benghazi attack were a lie, and we now know that its excuses for those talking points were lies as well.

By now, Americans know the Administration’s initial spin – that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration gone awry – was false. Its defenders, however, have consistently stated that these were merely good faith mistakes based on flawed intelligence assessments. In other words, they were only saying what the CIA told them to say.

This is false. The image below (released by ABC News) represents the anatomy of a lie -- and shows talking points that “evolved” from a combination of accurate and inaccurate statements (which is to be expected so soon after a violent attack) to a collection of utterly false contentions. Note particularly how reference to al Qaeda and previous terror attacks were specifically scrubbed from the document, leaving only references to the video.

This story is not over. There are reportedly a series of emails explaining the changes – emails the public needs to see.

Read the talking points and weep at the way “the most transparent administration in history” engineered a grand lie in the middle of an elections season:

When at War Borders Need to be Secure

By Jay Sekulow1413308602450

A nation at war needs to secure its borders. It is simply astonishing that a statement like that—a matter of simple common sense and basic national sovereignty—is politically controversial. It is simply astonishing that we’re left debating—like we did last week—whether the arrest of four...

ISIS in Our Midst?

By Matthew Clark1413300781746
