There is no other way to put it: The White House lied to the American people that an anti-Islamic movie so angered Libyans that they stormed our Embassy in Benghazi, and killed the US Ambassador and some of his staff. It was a terrorist attack. On September 20, the occupant of the Oval Office said that “extremists” used an anti-Islam video as an excuse to attack the US consulate. Speaking at a candidate forum on the Spanish-language network Univision, he said: “What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests.” Now the State Department says there was no protest.
AP now reports that State Department officials confirm that, “All was quiet outside the US Consulate as evening fell on Benghazi…There was no indication of the harrowing events that night would bring: assailants storming the compound and setting its buildings aflame, American security agents taking fire across more than a mile of the city, the ambassador and three employees killed and others forced into a daring car escape against traffic.” AP concludes: “The account answers some questions and leaves others unanswered. Chief among them is why for several days the Obama administration said the assault stemmed from a protest against an American-made Internet video ridiculing Islam…” No one is openly admitting it was al Qaeda.
Certainly, this is a touchy topic for the president. It was under his command that the US provided intelligence and air support to assist the Muslim Brotherhood-led rebels in overthrowing the Libyan government. Identified as part of the rebel coalition were longstanding leaders of al Qaeda. The Libyan rebel leader Abdel-Hakim al Hasidi admitted in an interview with the Italian newspaper II Sole 24 Ore that he had led al Qaeda terrorists against the US in Iraq. He also told the newspaper in March 2011 that his recruits in Libya were members of al Qaeda. The US supported this leader under another alias and US military brass danced around the al Qaeda question during Congressional hearings last year.
That the US president supported the same leadership in Libya under the banner of “democracy” that was trying to kill American troops in Iraq is grounds enough for impeachment. Yet, the news media and the politicians in Washington turn a blind eye to these documented facts. Now, it is obvious that the White House misled, if not outright lied to, the American people regarding the murder of our Ambassador in Libya. There is a lot of public relations spinning going on as if no one will recognize the lies. Romans 16:18 says, “For those who are such are not serving our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, but their own appetites, and by good words and fair speeches they deceive the hearts of the pure.” Do not be deceived.
