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:

Social Media: The World’s Newest Weapon

By Nicole Smith1485804622088

A gentlemen’s war was once fought at a meeting on the battlefield, standing face-to-face and barrel-to-barrel, as each soldier was shot down one by one. Where the victor was decided either by surrender, retreat, or whoever had the lowest body count at the battle’s end. Since then there has been an...

It Appears “Lone Wolf” Jihadists Run in a Pack

By Matthew Clark1484682422612

Yesterday the news broke that the wife of the Orlando terrorist, Omar Mateen, has been arrested on charges in connection with the jihadist attack that left 49 dead and more than 50 injured. It has been absurdly asserted for months – by President Obama and his leftist allies with their heads in the...
