Obama Administration’s Libyan Cover Up

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 22, 2012

The Wall Street Journal reported that the US government finally admitted what many Americans concluded shortly after the attack on the Libyan consulate in Benghazi that resulted in four Americans being killed, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.  US intelligence officials confirmed that terrorists including those connected with al Qaeda were involved in the attack and it was planned well in advance of the attack.

At a Senate committee hearing, Matthew Olsen, National Counterterrorism Center director testified this week that: “We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al Qaeda or al Qaeda’s affiliates, in particular, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.”  He concluded by calling the attack a “terrorist attack.”

It doesn’t take an expert on international relations to have concluded the involvement of terrorists and al Qaeda in the Libyan attack.  The fact that it was so well-planned and came on September 11 were telling enough.  Despite this obvious conclusion, the Obama Administration shortly after the attack sent its surrogates to the press to publicly blame the violence on an obscure and amateur film posted on YouTube.  On “Fox News Sunday” US Amb. Susan Rice had the following exchange (video below) with reporter Mike Wallace:

Mike Wallace – “The White House says it [Middle East riots] have nothing to do with the President’s policies.”  He then goes on to show a video to Ms. Rice with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney repeating the Administration’s position that: “This [attack] is in response to video that was offensive.

Mike Wallace – “You don’t really believe that?”

Susann Rice – “Chris, absolutely I believe that because in fact it’s the case.”

It is clear that Ms. Rice’s response was false.  She either purposely misled the American people for the President’s political gain or she has no clue as to what is occurring in the Middle East.  In either case Rice’s resignation is in order.  This is unlikely since the misrepresentations and/or lack of knowledge comes from the very top of this Administration.

  1. […] Earlier this month America’s Benghazi, Libya consulate was attacked resulting in the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.  For a couple weeks the Obama Administration blamed the attack on ad hoc demonstrations in opposition of an amateur YouTube video that was offensive to Muslims.  The Administration went out of its way to perpetrate this false conclusion.  For example, on September 19 US United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice went on the talk-show circuit claiming the attack was merely the result of spontaneous protests; the subject of this Blog’s posting titled Obama Administrations Libyan Cover Up.
