We now know there was no evidence, NONE, that the attack on our embassy was the result of a silly video. but still….
September 14 – White House spokesman Jay Carney:
“You know, we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack…
…let’s be clear. This — these protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region
..We do not, at this moment, have information to suggest or to tell you that would indicate that any of this unrest was preplanned.”
September 16 – United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice:
“The best information and the best assessment we have today is that was, in fact, not a pre-planned and pre-meditated attack.
…we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.”
“What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi, in many other parts of the region…was a result — a direct result of a heinous and offensive video”
“The Ivf Success Program – 75% For Affiliates!n-peter-king-bob-woodward-jeffrey-goldberg-andrea-mitchell/”>First of all we had no actionable intelligence to suggest that– that any attack on our facility in Benghazi was imminent.”
September 19 – Carney:
“based on the information that we had then and have now we do not yet have indication that it was pre-planned or pre-meditated.”
Obama even brought up the video baloney to the United Nations
“That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world…There are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. There is no video that justifies an attack on an Embassy.”
So we now know that the video had nothing to do with it, that in fact there was no intelligence to suggest this, and in fact ALL the intelligence pointed to it being a terrorist attack. Hell, this intelligence was gained within hours of the attack. But still his surrogates lied to the American people and with a straight face told the MSM talking heads that it was all the fault of a video.
If the Obama Administration wants to hide behind the fog of war to justify its behavior, I'd still like to know why their story became more focused on the YouTube video as the days progressed.
And now, after all the lies and deceit not only does our State Department know Obama won't do anything to help them if attacked, so does al-Qaeda.
