Barack, remember when your old pal/mentor/fellow Jew and America hater Rev. Jeremiah Wright gave that fiery sermon about "American's chickens coming home to roost?" That was a horrible remark, bashing the United States, by suggesting that we had 9/11 coming, which is what the Rev believes. The old adage "chickens come home to roost," while inapplicable there, is much more on point when it comes to your administration's coverup of the Benghazi disaster. As noted here, Candy Crowley gave you a temporary reprieve during last Tuesday night's debate by jumping in to issue her non-factual "fact check" of your very arrogant statement that you had called the Benghazi disaster an "act of terror" on the next day. (The look on your face as you glared at Mitt Romney and said "proceed" almost makes it seem that you and Candy had set this exchange up in advance.) She never asked why your U.N. ambassador appeared on 5 Sunday shows on 9/16/12 to tell us a risible explanation involving some moronic video that had debuted last June, and was seen by an audience that could fit in a phone booth. Nor did she explain why she herself, two weeks later on her "State of the Union" show on CNN, asked both John McCain and David Axelrod why your administration took so long to characterize the Libya attack as the action of terrorists, as noted here, where you can also hear the audio.
Sadly, Candy won't be with you during Monday night's debate, the final one between you and Mitt Romney, although I'm sure she will be cheering you on while watching at home. At that time, unfortunately, you will have some 'splainin' to do about the many shifting stories and inconsistencies in your Libya timeline, all of which point to one conclusion; specifically, that you and your apparatchiks are lying.
Last night you went on "The Daily Show," and in addition to describing the murders of 4 Americans with the chillingly clinical phrase "not optimal," you said that you were completely honest with the American public about this attack. Here’s the video.
Really? You told the American people everything we knew about this attack in real time as you found out? MMM …here's one of those inconsistencies. From the AP this morning:
The CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington within 24 hours of last month's deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate that there was evidence it was carried out by militants, not a spontaneous mob upset about an American-made video ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad, U.S. officials have told The Associated Press.
"[R]eported to Washington?" As Joe Biden would no doubt say, that doesn't mean the One. He can't be expected to know everything that's going on in every outpost, even one that has suffered numerous attacks in one of the most dangerous places in the world. Some might say he should spend a little less time on the golf course, hanging with Jay-Z and Beyoncè, and screeching at group's of college-age Obamabots and more time attending security briefings, but only the most racist, bitter clinging elements out there.
Recall what we heard Bob Woodward say on last Sunday's show. He describes a document, the original request for more security in Libya, from last March in which the administration expresses a desire "normalize" the security situation, a "bad policy" in a situation that is "inherently unstable." He said that anyone looking at it would say that we are "screwed up." Here's the audio: C.Wallace-B.Woodward-2-Docs
I guess it's appropriate that we began with Rev. Wright, since it's the ideas that you learned from him that have led to the policies that resulted in these murders.
Monday night should be very interesting.
