Skip to comments.Obama’s Libya statements become ludicrous

Bring on the racks of pants on fire fact checks. Unload an army of Pinocchios to debunk the most egregious of the many untruths weve heard since the 9-11-2012 attack in Libya. In what is surely the most jaw-dropping of the many fudges, misrepresentations and outright lies by the Obama administration in handling the Libya attack that killed four Americans, we now hear from the State Department that it never linked the attack and death of four Americans in Libya to the anti-Muslim movie. I bet this comes as a bit of a surprise since you saw U.S. officials say just that for days. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama even went on Pakistani TV to express regret about the movie, an odd thing to do if it wasnt linked in any way to the attack.
Moreover, the State Department now confesses there was no protest at all outside the Libyan installation before the attack.
Thats awfully problematic, given that Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice went on five talk shows suggesting in fact that the movie did provoke the attack. Mitt Romneys top foreign policy adviser, Richard Williamson, told Right Turn, Last time I checked, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations was part of the U.S. State Department.
It is long past the time for the president to come clean, explain what he knew, why his administration was putting out a false story for days, why proper security was not in place, why he went on Pakistani TV to express regret about a movie and why no one has been fired for lying to the American people.

Strong stuff from the Washington Compost.
Obama’s media smells a loser.
I think Big Bird sent them over the edge.
Someone will be fired on November 6, 2012.
Let's see if the average reader can tell the difference.
Ludacris: "Oh, man, don't associate ME with this loser..."
It will be Hillary. But not before the election because he needs Bill.
Good way to put it - Obama is beginning to stink like a loser. Its hard to put a finger on exactly why.
misrepresentations and outright lies
Don’t get excited. This is Jen Rubin, the house conservative columnist/blogger.
I like Jennifer Rubin, she doesn’t hold back.
It’s not the Washington Post, it’s Jen Rubin, one of their bloggers. She’s been a Romney supporter all along.
“Strong stuff from the Washington Compost.”
She sure nailed the Kenyan and his administration.
Because, Republican members of Congress have no guts to call out Obama and start ridding us of this “vermin” in the WH. It is us, the American people, who must take care of our dirty laundry....in November 2012. What happened in Libya is similar to what happened in Somalia - Blackhawk Down - in that additional security requested was denied and Americans died. That was under Bill Clinton’s watch and Libya is under Obama and Hillary’s watch. In the case of Somalia, I believe the decision maker did the noble thing - took his own life.
This amateur pos administration reminds me of the old saying...
“I’d rather ask for forgivness than ask for permission”
What’s important here...the February 17th Martyrs Brigade got their school lunch program via $30 per day stipend.
Move along...nothing to see here!
If it were not so deadly serious it would be farce. I used to think that Carter was bad, but he was a genius compared to Obama.
Blaming the movie “...it was a government wide assessment.” -Jay Carney.
The Park’s Department was adamant that they thought it was the movie. The Agriculture Department agreed. The only hold out was the EPA, which deferred pending the results of an environmental impact statement.
The other piece of this that must be brought into light every time dead-ambassador-gate is mentioned is how the regime used either printed money or borrowed-from-future-grandkid-taxes money, take your pick, to pay for advertising to the mudslim world, in Pakistan and elsewhere, bowing and apologizing for this alleged movie.
