There is a great deal of focus on the Benghazi hearings and rightfully so, but there’s something missing. There’s actually a larger issue that’s flying under the radar and really demands an answer.
Obama lied. Over and over and over. Two weeks after the attacks, Obama went to the UN and blamed the video six times. Six times.
Susan Rice, on of obama’s useful idiots, went out to the Sunday morning talk shows to spread the lie. Ben Rhodes gave her the order.
Rhodes outlined a number of talking points for Rice, with the advice “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”
Hillary Clinton lied. She and Obama took turns lying to America and the families of dead.
“We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video…”
Families of the dead call her a “serial liar.” Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, said “My son told me the night before that he has been asking for security and he hasn’t heard anything.”
The question is- why?
They all knew it wasn’t the video. Is it clear they all lied?
Why did they lie?
In the interest of completeness, Susan Rice should be subpoenaed to testify. Ben Rhodes should be subpoenaed to testify. Barack Obama should be subpoenaed to testify. Each one of them should have to explain why they lied to the American people about the attacks in Benghazi.
It’s rhetorical, of course. We know why.
Obama had trumpeted that Al Qaeda was all but defeated and the war on terror was over. An election was coming and the truth could upend it. The media has shown no inclination to get to the bottom of this, to find out why this wretched regime lied through its teeth.
That Barack Obama is a liar is nothing new. Why anyone believes anything he has to say is one of life’s enduring mysteries. But we deserve to know why he and his minions lied. We deserve to hear out loud the motivation for this outrageous mendacity.
