The State Department said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam

Hilda was saying it for three days......then went silent
We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.
Speaking at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, President Obama portrayed the deaths of four Americans in Libya as a result of inflamed tensions over an anti-Islam movie produced in the U.S., rather than a terrorist attack.
Although his administration in recent days acknowledged that the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were caused by a terrorist act on Sept. 11, Mr. Obama didnt mention terrorism as the likely cause in front of the international audience. He focused much of his speech instead on promoting religious tolerance and free speech, blaming the anti-Islam film for the anti-U.S. outbursts while cautioning that there is never an excuse for violence.
I know there are some who ask why we dont just ban such a video, Mr. Obama said. The answer is enshrined in our laws: our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech. Here in the United States, countless publications provoke offense. Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. Moreover, as President of our country, and Commander-in-Chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so. Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views even views that we disagree with.
Under the bus Rice, now!
Well, I guess it’s true: If you repeat a lie as the truth enough times, people start accepting it as the truth.
I wonder what that $70,000 ad that was paid for by the State Department, and broadcast all over Pakistan was about????
These idiots don’t think danged near every conservative in the country posted the words and watched the You Tube and many many other sites? They really believe we’re idiots. Boy I cannot wait until reality slugs them where it really hurts.
Hmm? Selective amnesia? Admit it, Hilary AND Obama, y’all are BOTH “al Qaeda sympathizers”! If only you two respected Americans like the two of you respect Islam.....
Bullsh*t, you lying b****.
Then why did Obam blame the video at the U N
Pretty soon, Romney will be the one who made a link in the MSM narrative.
This is from AP. I guess they couldn’t stand the lies either. Look at the comments under the article. None is sympathetic to the administration.
Weve always been at war with Eastasia.
Priceless. And a perfect analogy. Why can’t I think up clever stuff like this?
Apparently the head of the State Dept didn’t get the message or maybe she did. She needs to resign.
Pray for America
Jay carney blamed the video as well
>> it never concluded
Cuz they were too busy selling, asserting, and claiming.
Are you sure? I thought it was Eurasia?
(Ambassador) RICE: -- "was a result, a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the US government had nothing to do with,..."
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a continuing security breach, and that credible information about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated."
Soooo.....I guess the official announcement we all saw on TV the other day was really just the early onset of mass dementia?
LOL! These people have gone way beyond ridiculous if they think anyone is buying this crap anymore!
Then why the video message and 'mea culpa' apology from Oblamer/Clintoon?
