CBS BUSTS OBAMA--AND ITSELF--IN BENGHAZI COVER-UP
Breitbart ^ | 24 Oct 2012 | JOEL B. POLLAK

Posted on 10/25/2012 5:34:29 AM PDT by Snuph

CBS News has released a clip of an interview by Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes on Sep. 12 with President Barack Obama that indicates Obama knew the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was a premeditated terror attack--and suggests the White House later deceived the public by blaming protests against an anti-Islam video. CBS chose not to air the clip for over a month--but did air Obama’s attack on Romney that same night.

Obama told Kroft that the attack in Benghazi was different from the violent protest at the U.S. embassy in Cairo: "You're right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt, and my suspicion is, is that there are folks involved in this who were looking to target Americans from the start." Obama's remarks pointed towards a premeditated attack, in contrast to the story the White House went on to tell for weeks.

CBS chose not to air that portion of the interview with President Obama--not even in the days and weeks that followed, when it was highly relevant--first to the question of the nature of the Benghazi attack, then to the question of whether the president had in fact called it an act of terror from the start.

Everyone is ignoring the obvious: Obama gave 60 Minutes an interview then told them to withhold part of. Subsequently, when he wanted to give up the video fantasy,he had them release it just before the Foreign Policy debate.

Which means he can say “I’m for A” and “I’m against A” then tell the media which news to run and when. Complete deniability.

I suspect he’d prepped the moderator to refer to this clip if Romney attacked him on Benghazi. With all the media prepped to run it after the debate.

I guess this media behavior is worse than Jason Blair. How low can they go?

Obama was hoping to get past the election before this unraveled or at least past the debates.

He had to concoct a lie to cover up the fact that al Qaeda is resurging all over the place despite Obama’s claim that since OBL was assassinated, that spelled the end of AQ.

To me, that’s the big story. AQ has come back strong under Obama’s watch. We saw the end of the log turned over in Libya, but if and when someone turns over the whole log, the AQ infestation is going to be monumental.

It appears that Obama has armed AQ in a utopian goal of overturning bad regimes in the ME. What could go wrong?

In most cases when Obama uses the word “folks” he is referring to “Whites”. As in “white folks greed leaves a world in need”, “folks need to pay their fair share”.

Probably why they pulled it. He accidentally let the cat out of the bag the idea was to blame the attack on the “Rich white republican racist” for collaborating with the terrorist.

Listen to what Hillary said and you will hear the same thing. Hillary was pointing fingers at somebody planning the attack to hurt the Obama administration.
