Skip to comments.Obama rebuts claims he’s lying about attack on US embassy in Libya
Posted on 10/26/2012 12:28:43 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Barack Obama on Friday forcefully denied deliberately misleading Americans about the deadly attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, telling radio host Michael Smerconish, "I've always been straight with the American people."
Speaking to Smerconish during a 15-minute Oval Office interview, Obama also declared he was "absolutely" prepared to kill those behind the assault but would prefer to capture them and "bring them to justice."
Asked whether the Administration's shifting explanation for the September 11th strike reflected the intelligence he was receiving, Obama replied: "What's true is that the intelligence was coming in and evolving as more information came up.
"And what is true," he continued, "...This is something that the American people can take to the bank -- is that my administration plays this stuff straight. We don't play politics when it comes to American national security," the president said. "As information came in we gave it to the American people. And as we got new information, we gave that to the American people."
When and if the location of those behind the attack is known, Smerconish asked, "Will you take that person out without regard for the election timetable?"
"Absolutely," Obama replied. "But I think our goal would be to bring them to justice."

Ummm, so killing them isn't justice?
Beyond disgraceful. Impeachment is too good for this slime bucket.
This thing is getting traction.
Obama IS on the ropes.
There was a laser pointed at them by our Seals who were still alive. They asked you for support to kill the bastards and you denied it!
A liar talking to a turncoat. Of course, we will get all the facts./s
As you yourself like to say, Mr. President... "That's Bull(BLEEP!) (and that's all too obvious)
Who you gonna believe?
Me or your lying eyes?
Oh what a tangled web we weave,

Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)
Besides, he hates banks!!!
The turkey has outright lied and also lied by omission.
Dempsey is a Lying Sack of Excrement.
If Yahoo News is picking up on this it is getting traction.
Yahoo News is essentially an arm of the AP.
The press knows this thing is very big, but will never admit it. They must be dragged kicking & screaming into this story.
I always wondered who was famous for saying that! My mother drilled that into my head!!!
(Not you, Free Thinker. The other guy.)
It sure as heck wasn’t a VIDEO that caused that mess in Benghazi.
He can always say he was playing golf or fundraising, his loop runneth over yaknow.
That the House and Senate Intelligence and Oversight Committees aren’t issuing summons&ubpeonas as we post should not sit well with the American people.
We deserve better, regardless what Obama says or blames us for; like being ‘rich’ or vanilla ‘crackers’. If we don’t see action quick, many of those up for re-election ought ponder their futures , if the cliff don’t get ‘em, the ‘mob’ will.
