Pure bullshit. We all know they lied and the emails/cables and pleas for help prove it. The cover-up is political. The terrorist attack that happened in Benghazi went against Obama’s “we have al-Qaeda on its heels..on the run” campaign spin. All Obama talked about leading up to the election was foreign policy because his economic record was abysmal.
Telling the truth goes against this administration’s narrative. We know that the CIA talking points that pointed to al-Qaeda was changed by an Obama political appointee, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. We know that Ambassador Stevens requested and begged for added security. They hid the truth and have been busted time after time.
Under fire from congressional critics, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Ricestressed in a Tuesday statement that she did not intend to mislead the public about the September 11th attacks on the Benghazi consulate.
“Neither I nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in this process, and the administration updated Congress and the American people as our assessments evolved,” Rice said.
Rice has emerged as a high-profile administration target for congressional critics who claim that the Obama administration tried to cover up a terrorist link to the attacks.
Rice and acting CIA director Michael Morell met Tuesday with Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.),Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) to discuss her public statements in the aftermath of the assault that killed four U.S. State Department personnel in September.
Rice did a round of Sunday shows the weekend after the attack, and claimed that it had been sparked by an anti-Muslim video. The intelligence community later retracted her statements and the talking points she was given.
