Cheney: Obama Administration "Involved In A Cover Up" Of Libya Attack
Real Clear Politics ^ | October 2, 2012

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: I think the danger from [the Obama Administration’s] standpoint is that this whole episode of Benghazi demonstrates that they don’t have a handle on foreign policy and national security matters. They like to go out and say, “bin Laden is dead. Terrorism is dead, al Qaeda is dead, and, you know, we’re great in the foreign policy field,” but that’s hogwash. First of all, the people who deserve credit are the intelligence professional who worked on that issue for ten years and finally got on the trail of bin Laden. But secondly, that claim to be competent in the world of foreign affairs just goes down in flames when you look at what happened in Benghazi. The latest thing I’ve heard now is that, and they were denied - now this is all second hand, I haven’t seen the confirmations yet - they had denied the additional security resources that had been requested by the Benghazi consulate or the Libyan - our embassy in Libya had asked for more help and didn’t get it.

Of course they do! Why do you think there’s an endless stream of Muslim Brotherhood “influencers” coming and going from the White House and terrorist supporters joining the POS-in-chief at state dinners? hhmmmm???

I’m sure Dick Cheney knows a cover up when he sees one.

This cover up is so amateurish that everybody can see it. Even people who are trying to avoid seeing it.

You’re way below glideslope, pull-up, pull-up! You prefer ‘rat coverups, I suppose? What did Cheney coverup? Even if he did, his coverups were probably truly in the National interest whereas ‘rat coverups are in the party and/or personal interests.

Cheney is absolutely correct on this one.

While it was going down, Obama was campaigning with “The Pimp With the Limp”.

But maybe that was no accident.

The U.S. Ambassador had requested help and he got none.

After all, Bammy needs an October Surprise.

Won’t surprise me to see attacks on Libya before October ends or about 3 days before the election at the latest.

But its even worse. Obama created the libyan mess in the first place and handed eqypt and libya over to the terrorists. For all his faults Bush at least tried to advance two muslim countries forwards. obama did just the opposite and moved two muslim countries backwards.

Where are today’s Woodward and Bernstein? The problem for them would be which Obama regime scandal and ensuing coverup to concentrate on. There’s so many.
