interesting time line, lets see how the conspiracy theorist try to spin this one
First off, this film trailer was translated and broadcast by al Jazeera back in
JULY.Second, it was the anniversary of 9/11.There is no excuse for
what happened, except Obama's false hope that the Muslim world would be
peaceful simply because he has asked them to be. Presidents work with NATIONS,
not religions. From his first week in office Obama has courted Islam.But
I've never been sure if he was a Sunni or Shia supporter. Given the
times and the flow of intelligence warnings, the ambassador should have been
better protected or perhaps called home. But that would have been offensive to
Muslims and look bad in an election year.Obama thinks he's solved the
Anti-American problem in the Middle East and refuses to take action that would
make it appear otherwise. He's living in a dream world.
@spring street - no conspiracy theory needed. By all indisputable facts and
evidence, there was clearly an unacceptable level of incompetence with regard to
acknowledging the reality of likely violence in Libya and ensuring adequate
security. There are only two possible conclusions that can be drawn
regarding the administration's post-attack narrative, neither of which
reflect well on the Obama Administration.One, that there was a
nearly inconceivable level of abject incompetence in the interpretation of
post-attack intelligence. Or, that the Obama Administration lied to America to
preserve a campaign narrative that they had nearly defeated terrorism. Given that everyone, including Libyan officials and pinheaded news pundits
knew immediately that the Benghazi incident was a planned terrorist attack and
not the result of spontaneous mob outrage over a video, it's really
unbelievable to me that our intelligence branch fed such wrong information to
the administration. That requires an extremely high level of gullibility.
@letdebatethe incompetence that lead them to increase security and the
incompetence that lead him to call it an act of terror the day after the attack.
try reading the timeline you clearly missed a few details.
@KalindraObama did NOT call it a terrorist attach the next day in the Rose
Garden. He was speaking in general terms, just as he would a crazy man shooting
people in a movie theater.He was parsing words then and in the debate.
Even Candy Crowley realized the true context of the phrase within minutes of the
end of the debate and made her own correction.The truth is that the
official White House/Secretary of State explanation for two weeks after the
attack was that it was a spontaneous film protest that got out of hand.We
have come to learn that the official explanation was wrong.Try reading the
timeline. You clearly missed a few details.
@say no its not Obama trying to parse words, he referred to it as an act
of terror the day after, read the timeline, you can try to twist and turn but
the news conference was called to address the attack not some "general"
statement about terror around the world.
Well there are certainly a lot of gullible people, willing to believe any line
Obama gives them. If Obama characterized the Benghazi situation as a terrorist
attack, which he did not, why then did his spokespeople tell us for 2 weeks in
contradiction to Obama's comments, that it was, "in fact," a
spontaneous mob that overreacted to a crummy video? I don't think
there's any spin around that one, but I'm sure Obama will give it a
try on Monday. And Obama should thank his lucky stars that there
are still a lot of gullible people, otherwise he could have started packing a
long time ago.
If Obama was saying it was a premeditated attack, why, in the opening seconds of
his speech, did he refer to the video immediately after discussing the Benghazi
attack:"Since our founding, the United States has been a nation
that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious
beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of
senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally
reject these brutal acts."
