UN ambassador says Libya attack was spontaneous
Associated Press ^ | Sept. 16, 2012 | JOSH LEDERMAN

WASHINGTON—A deadly assault on a U.S. consulate in Libya was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said Sunday, even as Libya's president insisted the attackers spent months preparing and carefully choosing their date—the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Unnerved by the rapidly escalating raid on Tuesday that claimed the life of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, the Obama administration last week launched an investigation into whether terrorist groups had exploited outrage over an anti-Muslim video to trigger an attack long in the works.

I’m beginning to think that the Zero administration wants to go with this narrative (film caused the riots) so they can work to limit free speech, well, the free speech of those they disagree with.

I believe the Obama misAdministration is clinging to this story of the video, and the spontaneity of attack lie because they know it was their policies that failed.

It’s a coverup of their failures in the ME IMO.

I don't deny that they want to rein in free speech, but I think the larger issue here is if they can't find a scapegoat they know the blame is going to swing to them.

They're trying REALLY hard to make the film the issue. Even many on DU are upset about it, believe it or not.

This is a LIE!

How many protesters carry RPGs to their rallies? Even OWS didn’t do that. This was PLANNED, most likely by Ansar Al Sharia trying to impress Al-Qaeda.

I cannot believe the media are letting them get away with this much. Next they’ll be saying it was all an accident!

Spontanious ‘happenings’ don’t usually involve a reported 400 very well armed terrorists.

This is the Administration’s BS ‘meme’ and they’ll stick to it even though the youtube was months old and the event happened on 9/11, but - it will satisfy their lib voters...

Headline on Drudge right now;

Libyan president: ‘No doubt’ consulate attack was ‘preplanned’ starting months ago...

Even CNN knows more than Ambassador Rice.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Egypt intelligence warns (on Sept 4th) of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Barack Obama is a fascist. He will use any excuse to constrain and restrict me to the behaviors he wants to see. He does not have a clue about how a free society operates. If he indeed taught a course called Constitutional Law (a course that sadly many law schools leave to politicians and other adjuncts) the students were defrauded big time.

What is the Administration’s problem? So what if it wasn’t spontaneous? Why continue to maintain the story that it was spontaneous?

An Ambassador is supposed to represent our country.....not the Democrat party or Obama. Time for this one to be dismissed for lying to her employers, and folks, we are her employers.

If we allow liars like this to hold high positions in our government, then how can we trust our government? Maybe she’s working for the Cubans? How can you know? She’s a proven liar. God, paleface Lizzy Warren and this liar.

I watched her lie like a rug on CBS or something(couldn’t find fox)

First I thought, who is this lady trying to look like Condaleezza Rice, with the straight hair and the big pearl-like necklace.

Then I listened to her lie about how the hit was spontaneous and how she had been to that city and another city with sufficient protection that she what grateful for(? Who cares about your trips lady)

Then I see on the screen that she is the US Ambassador to the U.N. - AND- her name is Susan RICE or something like that.

I thought they/she was trying to pull a sham with her looks and her name recognition(well not her name because I never heard of her, but Condaleezza’s name)

Anyway, I thought she was full of crap and they are still peddling this crap about it being because of a video.
