Skip to comments.Politics loom as new facts emerge in Libya probe
Posted on 10/10/2012 10:03:10 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The State Department now says it never believed the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was a film protest gone awry, giving congressional Republicans new fodder for criticizing the Obama administration's initial accounts of the assault.
The State Department's extraordinary break with other administration offices came in a department briefing Tuesday, where officials said "others" in the executive branch concluded initially that the protest was based, like others in the Middle East, on a film that ridiculed the Prophet Muhammad.
That was never the department's conclusion, a senior official told reporters.

“Politics” to imply the truth doesn’t matter.
HILLARY TO barry FUBO.
Somehow this will be spun as another bad week for Romney.
Politics “loomed” when Obama decided to lie about the cause of this disaster, shifting blame from himself to our Constitution and our rights as free Americans.
Even some of these liberal reporters have to be realizing incompetence when they see it.
I mean let’s face it, when it comes to things like this what matters is knowing how to do your job, not what party you prefer. And it should be obvious even to the hardcore libs that this administration is simply incompetent.
Exactly. Hillary is going to throw Barry under the bus. She is NOT going to take the fall on this one. Since Clinton is an opportune organism she is going to use this to ensure that Romney is elected, which will position her for a run in 16.
This doesn’t seem to be the Hildebeeste saying FUBO, it seems to be the professional staff at State telling her and der Fuehrer, FUBO, FAD, FUHC. They seem to no longer want to take a bullet for the lying politicians.
"We knew it was a terrorist attack but intentionally released wrong information in order to provide cover to our team of investigators and to confuse the real perpetrators."
Or something like that.
I was thinking the same thing. Never mind the Administration and State Department has been caught lying and covering up the deaths of 4 Americans.
I don't think. Hillary was out there for 10 days blaming the video too, so she's going to take a fall as big as Obama on this.
I think the lesson is that they are both incompetent political hacks with absolutely no qualifications for the jobs they have.
Hillary ain’t going to fall on her sword for the Kenyan. For Bill and Monica - yes. For Barry and Benghazi - nope.
Obama Machine vs Clinton machine should be interesting
LOL....it’s nice to see both Obama and Hillary thrown under the bus for a change. Where were these bed-wetters in the State Dept. when Rice was lying to five networks and Obama was lying to his Muslim chums and then the entire UN about the “disgusting” video?
The entire criminal enterprise in D.C. insults us by thinking we are stupid enough to believe their lies.
Thank you. Why not a FACTUAL headline, along the lines of
STATE DEPT REVEALS WH LIBYA DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN
The only way Hillary will ever be president is if she throws Obama under the political bus. This was the opening shot by Hillary.
She could resign and blame it on Obama “trying” to use her to spread lies. I suspect that she refused and Obama sent out Susan Rice to lie for him.
If she resigned it would sink Obama and she could use the next for years “Saving” the democrat party from itself and then capture the nomination and possibly the presidency. She is this devious. If she “Saves” the democrat party it will still be the Demonicrat Party.
You're right - Obama and liberal elites USED this crisis to attack our First Amendment rights. Odd that the press didn't catch that angle.
there’s a whistleblower according to Issa
must be the reason for such a dramatic turnaround
This could get interesting if the press can't keep a lid on the story.
doublethink - Reality Control. The power to hold two completely contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accept both of them.
In order for a person to be effective at doublethink, they must master the art of crimestop.
This word has made its way into the Merriam-Webster dictionary:
doublethink (’d&-b&l-”thi[ng]k), noun, Date: 1949 : a simultaneous belief in two contradictory ideas.
Here is how Winston Smith described doublethink in the novel:
“To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself. That was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.’
I’m pretty sure if John Wayne came back to life, zombie John Wayne wouldn’t stand for it. And it gives me a headache. The truth isn’t in them.
It’s like Zero’s confabulations over his poor debate performance. Instead of saying, “I did poorly. I’ll do better next time,” like a man, his minions lie, obfuscate & finger-point, as he did.
So the “most transparent administration ever” is rotting from the head down. No surprise here.
Kid Rock was right. Those of us who love our country were hoping Obama would do a good job. He hasn’t.
