No hard questions about purposely lying to the American people about the YouTube video or the Benghazi cover-up or the secret arms deal that let weapons fall into the hands of al-Qaeda linked rebels. Just more media cheer-leading for Obama.
From The Hill:
President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended their foreign policy record in the middle East, saying in an interview aired Sunday that they wisely chose not to “shoot from the hip.”
In a joint interview aired on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” the president and secretary of State said the United States has not retreated from the world stage, a charge made by critics urging the Obama administration to do more to intervene in Syria and take a tougher stance with Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Middle East is more dangerous under Obama than at any other time in recent history.
Obama cited both Egypt and Libya as instances where his administration played a leading role, saying that former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi “probably does not agree with that assessment” of U.S. retreat.
Obama was pulled into the Libyan conflict after France and the UK were already there. Always leading from behind. How has that Libya deal worked out? Gadhafi is dead but now Islamic terrorists are in control.
“We do nobody a service when we leap before we look, where we take on things without having thought through all the consequences of it,” Obama said in the interview.
Except when the administration leaped to fraudulently blame a YouTube video for the attack and won’t allow more than 20 survivors to be interviewed. Egypt is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Qaeda linked) and Obama sends them American F-16 fighter jets and tanks. Syria is in the midst of a civil war between President Assad and Syrian rebels. Iran is closer to producing a nuclear bomb and Northern Africa is now al-Qaeda’s headquarters. Americans have been killed by Islamic terrorists in Libya and Algiers.
Is this what “success” looks like under these idiots foreign policy.
Lying is a prerequisite for all in the Obama regime.
From Fox News:
[...]Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) pressed her on the anti-Islamic video that was originally blamed for the attack. “When you briefed us, you said unequivocally this was a result of a video and I remember in fact you got pretty upset about it when somebody suggested this was a terrorist attack.”
Clinton said, “I did not say … that it was about the video for Libya, it certainly was for many of the other places where we were watching these disturbances.”
Here is Hillary blaming the YouTube video, just as Obama did during his UN speech:
I guess perjury charges will be filed shortly.
They’re not really trying to find answers. They’re just trying to stall the truth from escaping.
(CNSNews.com) – In the aftermath of the terrorist attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, five State Department Diplomatic Security agents who were in Benghazi that day and survived the attack were evacuated from the country and taken to Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.
All five had suffered from smoke inhalation, and one was seriously wounded.
Under questioning from Sen. Ron Johnson (R.-Wis.) in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed that she has spoken to only one of the American survivors who was evacuated from Libya after the Benghazi attack. Presumably, this was one of the five Diplomatic Security officers who fought off the terrorists at the State Department’s Benghazi Special Mission Compound on Sept. 11 and who lived to be able to report as eyewitnesses about what had happened there that day.
The Obama administration has not yet publicly named a single one of these five surviving State Department heroes.
In fact, the only American witnesses to the Benghazi attack who have been named by the Obama administration are the four whom the terrorists killed–Amb. Chris Stevens, State Department Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were working for the CIA, not for Clinton’s State Department.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) points out Hillary Clinton’s failure as Clinton grins.
