Your question, "Any thoughts from the left? " is sort of oxymoronic, isn't it?I'm posting the crux of this article - as lengthy as it is. Liberals should read every word:
Hey, liberals! Obama thinks you are stupid. Yeah, he does. He knew Benghazi was terrorism before he didn't know it was terrorism.
Addressing a question about Benghazi in his press conference Monday, May 13, 2013, Obama's "logic" really made an impression:
"The Day after it happened I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism."
"What we have been very clear about throughout, was that immediately after this event had happened we were not clear who exactly had carried it out, how it had occurred, what the motivations were. It happened at the same time we had seen attacks on the US Embassy in Cairo as a result of this film."
"Nobody understood exactly what was taking place during the course of those first few days."
"Suddenly, three days ago, this gets spun up as if there's something new to the story. There's no "there" there.
"Talking points pretty much matched the assessment I was receiving at that time in my presidential briefing...."
Obama claims to have known the day after the attacks that they were an act of terrorism.(He's claiming that his Rose Garden comments about terrorism in general amount to a statement that the attacks were terror-related, but this is not the case.) So, thus far, we have:
Day After. Obama. Terrorism.
But, immediately after it happened he wasn't clear who did it, how it occurred and the motivation. So:
Immediately After. Obama. Unclear.
Obama knew it was terrorism the day after, but immediately after, it wasn't clear.
First Few Days. Nobody Understood.
Except for a brief moment immediately after the attack when Obama knew it was terrorism.
Is this getting any clearer?
Even though personnel in Libya claim everyone on the ground and in Washington knew it was terror-related, and even though the day after the attack Obama knew it was terror-related, and even though immediately after the attack it was not clear to Obama, and even though during the first few days after the attack nobody understood what was going on...Susan Rice used talking points on the Sunday morning television shows to promote the notion that the attacks were spurred on by a protest against an anti-Muslim video that got out of hand. And we know that every appearance Obama and Hillary made thereafter, conclusively stated that the video -- and not the terrorists -- was to blame for Benghazi including when they spoke so touchingly at Andrews Air Force base over the caskets of the Forgotten Four.
When toiling with proofs in high school geometry and being thoroughly flummoxed, our teacher used to tell us: "If you can't convince them, confuse them."
Liberals: Obama wants to confuse you, because he can't convince you. That should be enough to tell even those with the lightest of intellects that there really is a "there" there.
Any thoughts from the left?
