Below is Sept 12 2012 the obama Rose Garden speech...The very speech candy crowley just happen to have a copy on hand during the debate and used it to back up obama’s lie. Of course her later admission that Romney was correct came after 30,000,000 people had turned off their TVs leaving Mitt Romney looking like he was wrong…

1) The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We're working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

2) Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

3) As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

4) No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.

IMO, The second sentence in the second paragraph is the binding reason behind the murders of 4 Americans otherwise there would be no reason whatsoever for the second paragraph. Obviously a video that denigrated the religious beliefs of a crowd stood as the reason for the murders. A video which obama blamed and talked about for two weeks all while denying Libya 9/11 was a terrorist attack.

Note the last two words of the second paragraph are “brutal acts” and Not Acts of Terror, Terrorists or Terrorism. Obviously b. h. obama lied to the American people in the debate all while the American people were led to believe everything was the fault of a video. Even the video maker was arrested.

In the final paragraph b. h. obama clearly uses the No Acts of Terror line as a generality otherwise he would have been specific and said,“No Act of Terror.” He could not be specific because the No Acts of Terror line is without question superseded by the second paragraph's binding explanation.

b. h. obama is not a president he is a pathetic weasel who never said Libya 9/11 was a terrorist attack in the Rose Garden or anywhere else. Instead for two weeks b. h. obama chose to blame the murders of 4 Americans on a video. Let’s say it was a terror attack as obama suddenly proclaimed in debate 2 then obama’s response to a terror attack was to head to Las Vegas and party with Jay-Z, etc.

Obviously Mitt Romney was correct.

So is it your logical conclusion Obama was referring to the Attacks on New York and Washington DC by Bin Laden 11 years ago and not Benghazi the night prior?

That makes as much sense as a terrorist attack can't be spontaneous and opportunistic. By the Republicans position, terrorist attacks have to follow a specific protocol.

Obama: leave Ambassador Susan Rice alone

Obama press conference QUOTE:

"She made an appearance at the REQUEST OF THE WHITE HOUSE in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her," he said.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/14/obam...

Well, then WHO in the "White House"-note the third party reference-asked Rice to testify and WHO gave her the information she spouted?

And how can anyone 'go after' President Obama when he rarely holds press conferences and reporters are afraid to ask follow-up questions during a press conference?

WHO IN THE WHITE HOUSE requested Susan Rice to speak on the Benghazi murders and WHO gave her the fictitious information?

Again, NO FOLLOW UPS by the frightened White House media.

Talk about a cover up!

Why are people dissecting the word terror. Back in Bush's time people were admonished to not use the word terrorism because after 911 and Bush used the word terrorist the people began calling other Americans terrorist over any mean act they did be it stalking of another or murder or just someone fighting with them. So politicians and the American people are not to use the word terrorist. If its an act of Al Quida say that but not terrorist.

This is under investigation and not anything we have facts on yet. But when they do which I am sure they will we will know what went wrong unlike the Bush admin--who went after the wrong leader and wrong country allowing thousand more Americans to die as Bush paid Pakistan 4 billon a year to use their air space while they harbored Bin Laden.

Weak diversion noted, however it is from the State Department, eye witnesses on the ground and emails that ask for assistance. Maybe you should take up reading instead of typing. You could learn more.
