The story that won’t die despite the best efforts of administration and its
White House scribes reporters in main stream media.
As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows. The discussions involved senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the White House.
Seven months late to the game, CBS News chimes in: Administration knew Banghazi was a terrorist attack “from the get go”.
And in what I fear is a wildly optimistic prediction, there’s this prediction:
Benghazi Blues. “No matter what happens with Darrell Issa’s congressional committee meetings this week, we are witnessing the beginning of the end of the Obama Administration, and the cause is Benghazi. It’s impossible to underestimate the blowback that has been gathering steam for the past seven months, now about to erupt with full force. Few reputations will emerge unscathed, Obama’s presidency will be crippled, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 candidacy will be destroyed — and perhaps some new heroes will be born.”
My guess is that Joe Biden’s group is responsible for much of this development. He’s admitted that he can’t run if Hillary does, so it makes sense to go after her now.
Meanwhile, the filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who the White House knowingly, falsely, blamed for causing the slaughter, remains in jail. Vladimir Putin would approve.
