Lybia is Obama's Waterloo or Watergate, I can't decided just yet.

This is pretty condemning information considering the inaccurate (smokescreen) story that was repeatedly being told by many administration officials (aka, President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Ambassador Susan Rice, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, and State Department Spokesperson Victoria Newland).

It is very apparent (that in the lower levels of the State Department), along with subsequent comments made by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, and Matt Olsen (the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center) that they knew, from day-one, the Benghazi attack was a "terrorist attack" and not a "spontaneous demonstration" due to the release of an anti-Islamic video.

But yet these administration officials created and/or continued to perpetuate this misleading story about the Benghazi attack, that it was a spontaneous attack, then when that was not "selling," they "clammed up" started stating "...we are still investigating" and don't have all the facts yet." It was EIGHT DAYS before the real story began to come out.


And yet, the Obama campaign continues to have the unmitigated gall to state that Mitt Romney is a liar and has no core values.
