This could be a really simple post. All I have to do is post Drudge headlines. First, these three:
LIBYAN OFFICIAL WARNED USA ‘3 DAYS BEFORE ATTACK’…
Libyan president: ‘No doubt’ was ‘preplanned’ starting months ago…
Video Purports To Show US Ambassador Dragged, Cheers From Crowd…
and then this one:
Ambassador Rice: Attack NOT Premeditated…
But let’s flesh them out a bit.
It is obvious to all but the most mentally impaired that the attack that took the life of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was planned. Libyan officials agree. Hell, they even warned Washington.
Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Libya’s current President made it clear that this was planned:
Libya President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf said Sunday that 50 arrests have been made in connection with last week’s “preplanned” attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead.
“The way these perpetrators acted and moved — I think we, and they’re choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this was pre-planned, determined,” Magariaf said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“And you believe that this was the work of Al Qaeda, and you believe that it was led by foreigners. Is that what you’re telling us?” CBS host Bob Schieffer asked.
“It was planned, definitely. It was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago. And they were planning this criminal act since their arrival,” Magariaf said.
And the Obama adminstration?
Um, no it wasn’t. It was spontaneous.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi last week was not premeditated, directly contradicting top Libyan officials who say the attack was planned in advance.
“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”
“In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated,” Rice said, referring to protests in Egypt Tuesday over a film that depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud. Protesters in Cairo breached the walls of the U.S. Embassy, tearing apart an American flag.
“We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo,” Rice said. “And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons… And it then evolved from there.”
– The attack in Bengahazi was not an attack in a nation’s capitol
– It was the only attack on US assets to include grenades and RPG’s
– It simply happened to occur when Chris Stevens was visiting
– The attackers knew where the safe house was
– There was no Marine guard
– It occurred on 9-11
– They knew Stevens was coming
I present to you three of the most grand lies in US government history:
“I am not a crook”[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh163n1lJ4M&feature=fvwrel[/youtube]
“I did not have sex with that woman”[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiIP_KDQmXs[/youtube]
“This was a spontaneous attack”[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma6pMrMOIQ8[/youtube]
If you buy into this, and most liberals will, you are truly a useful idiot. Among those useful idiots?
Brian Williams, Anderson Cooper, Bob Schieffer, David Gregory.
And all of PMSNBC.
But the fact is, Obama has jumped the shark.
And let us harken back to Obama’s words:
I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.
Not Catholicism, not Judaism, only Islam.
