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 didn’t 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 don’t 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.

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????

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.

Apparently the head of the State Dept didn’t get the message or maybe she did. She needs to resign.

S n i c k e r.... on the surface, liberalism on display. Always always deny, accuse, deny, accuse someone else for stupidity, incompetence, corruption, deceit, and bearing false witness. The world is laughing at you Obama and Clinton... Time for ya all ‘you know’, to pack your bags and live off your ill gotten gains.

Obama UN Ambassador Tries To Claim Protests Had Nothing To Do With Obama Policies
(video 2:16. Both Rice and Carney flatly say that the video was the cause of the Benghazi attack.)

(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,..."

U.S. denies premeditation report

"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?
