SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM ALLEGES POSSIBLE COVER-UP AFTER LIBYA ATTACK
The Blaze ^ | 10/14/2012 | Eric ritz

Posted on 10/15/2012 2:47:33 PM PDT by mgist

(TheBlaze/AP) — A senior Republican senator Sunday accused President Barack Obama’s aides of deliberately covering up the details of the Sept. 11 attack in Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador so voters wouldn’t question Obama’s handling of the war on terror.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a long-time point man for the GOP on national security issues, said he believes the administration knew within 24 hours of the assault that it was a coordinated militia attack and was not tied to other anti-U.S. protests across the Middle East. According to Graham– who is investigating the attack– the administration suggested otherwise so voters wouldn’t think Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East has failed.

(AP File Photo) He explained:

“They’re trying to sell a narrative, quite frankly, that the Mid-East– the wars are receding and that al-Qaeda has been dismantled.  And to admit that our embassy was attacked by al-Qaida operatives, and [in] Libya leading from behind didn’t work, I think undercuts that narrative.  They never believed the media would investigate, Congress was out of session, and this caught up with them.  I think they’ve been misleading us, but it finally caught up with them.” After Bob Schieffer said it was a “very serious charge” for the senator to level, Graham continued:

“Either they’re misleading the American people, or incredibly incompetent.  There was no way with anybody looking at all that you could believe five days after the attack that it was based on a riot that never occurred… This is the same administration that leaks every detail of classified operations that are successful… When something goes bad, they deny, they deceive, and they delay.  And the truth is, we’re not safer.  Al-Qaeda is alive– Bin Laden may be dead–Al-Qaeda is alive, and they’re counter-attacking throughout the entire region.

Were we to have a justice dept of above room temp lawyers instead of the corrupt Dork-O-Rama currently infecting Washington, the Obamafool/cretin would have been impeached, convicted, imprisoned and returned to Kenya a thousand times over.

This shows us the problem with early voting. Something serious like this just could change minds....a lot of minds.

Lest we forget, this little fag and his puppet handler McCain were all up in love with the Arab springers in Egypt and Libya. They are both a big part of buying into and selling the arab democracy lie.

I believe the WH knew it was a terrorist attack from the very beginning, whilst the attack was still ongoing.

Looks like Lindsay is doing the same as Obama, “leading from behind”. There is a whole lot more going on with Obama’s Middle East policy than just screwing up in Benghazi.

Ya think, Linseed?

The Pres. and Sec. State, among many, had the opportunity to watch and listen to the whole thing in real time.

Any time an event such as the attack on the Benghazi consulate takes place the moment it is reported up the chain of command that automatically, and by law, triggers an immediate report all the way to the top of the chain of command to the Pres., VP, Sec. State, Pentagon and the CIA. And others.

Col. Hunt On The Newest Libyan Revelations (huge coverup!)

The attack began about 3:30 PM EST and was all over by at least 8:30 PM EST.

He sees that primary on the horizon and is trying to have some sounds bites that he can use later.

Yeah, there’s a cover-up. It’s you Lindsey, covering your buddy democrats’ asses when Rand Paul called them out over funding the terrorist countries who are attacking our embassies.

Remember that the CIA who was supposed to get control of the SAMS, chemical weapons and nuclear material during the fall of Gadafi failed to find them...and guess what... one of the SAM’s was used to down the Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan that killed 38 of our best troops...

House Speaker Thomas Foley and Senate Democratic leader George Mitchell said in 1992 about the Reagan "October surprise" of 1980 there are "persistent and disturbing" reports.

"We have no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, but the seriousness of these allegations, and the weight of circumstantial information, compel an effort to establish the facts."

Now the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radicals (psycho spoiled brats) and their ideological issue in the Rat Party (formerly the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party) are screaming Whaaa! Whaaa! Whaaaaa!

Not to mention a whitewash and media blackout conspiracy.

Hillary ran away to Peru when she realized that the coverup, whitewash and media blackout wasn't going as planned.

Lindsey Grahamnesty is the expert on cover-ups.

He’s been covering up his gayness for 50 years.

Or at least HE thinks it’s covered up.
