Remember all these golden hits from not that long ago (plus a host of others) which the Left carped about DAILY? Remember the claims that Bush was a tyrant/dictator/fascist/Nazi? That he was a war-mongering war criminal who really, really loved war? That the United States should be the world’s buddy, and shouldn’t do things like forcibly extracting information from terrorists, or listen in on conversations between terrorists, ’cause THAT would be an egregious governmental overreach?
That is sooooo yesterday.
In light of the news which we just touched on earlier, the media’s reaction has been somewhat of a mixed bag. Certainly there’s been surprise from some on the Left, and it can’t be ignored that the leaked 16-page ‘White Paper‘ was brought to light via NBCnews.com. But it remains to be seen if this will engender even a fraction of the vitriol that was trained on G. W. Bush and the War on Terror before their guy took over the shop.

Wow, who could have guessed this was the case? Other than, well, …everybody?

“U.S. Officials Knew Libya Attacks Were Work of Al Qaeda Affiliates”
The phrase res ipsa loquitur comes to mind: “the thing speaks for itself“.
Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. Three separate U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.
Nonetheless, it took until late last week for the White House and the administration to formally acknowledge that the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack. On Sunday, Obama adviser Robert Gibbs explained the evolving narrative as a function of new information coming in quickly on the attacks. “We learned more information every single day about what happened,” Gibbs said on Fox News. “Nobody wants to get to the bottom of this faster than we do.”
I’d say this is despicable, but that word just doesn’t quite encompass the enmity I’m feeling towards these traitorous cretins.
And just to review: it was a full FIVE days later, or four days AFTER they knew this was the case, that the Obama Administration trotted out UN Ambassador Susan Rice to make the rounds on the Sunday talk shows and deliberately lie to the American people.
Yes, lie. There is no other word for it.
THIS is your current administration, folks.
Anyone want them around for four more years? You must truly hate our country if you do.
