Barack Hussein Obama's big lie
It ain't the crime, it's the cover up.
"Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference — at this point, what difference does it make?"
That was how then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton famously brushed off the question of when she knew that the attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last Sept. 11 that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were, in fact, a terrorist assault and not a "protest" of an anti-Islam video that got out of hand.
Clinton's fans, in and out of the press, loved her defiant response, and they should be ashamed of themselves for it.
What Clinton was really doing there was deflecting attention away from the fact that she lied.
LIED LIED LIED LIED LIED, got it
We now know, thanks to Wednesday's congressional hearings and reporting by The Weekly Standard's Steve Hayes, that administration officials knew from the outset the video had nothing to do with it. Intelligence sources on the ground in Libya and officials in Washington knew that it was a terrorist attack from the beginning. The video was a "nonevent in Libya" according to Gregory Hicks, the man who inherited Stevens' duties after the ambassador was killed by al-Qaida-linked militants. The false video story was simply imposed from above by Clinton, President Barack Obama and their subalterns.
Let's return to that lie in a moment.
The hearings exposed another lie. Obama and Clinton have insisted they did everything they could to help the Americans besieged in Libya; they just couldn't get help to them in time.
That's simply a lie.
