Make it go away!
That was the message of the Obama administration and their friends in the media for the past two years, and now we know why: Benghazi is the scandal they always denied it was.
Thanks to a lawsuit by watchdog group Judicial Watch, the administration last week released correspondence about the terrorist attack in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 that left US ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others dead.
One memo, from Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security director for strategic communications, shows how the administration was trying to spin the attack as something other than their own strategic failures.
Reinforce the president and administrations strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges, he wrote to UN Ambassador Susan Rice. He instructed her to underscore that the events in Benghazi were protests . . . rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.
Beyond the callousness of this message, and the fact that officials already knew this was the work of terrorists, that this document is just coming out now shows the depth of the administrations cover-up.

Haven't we known this for several years?
Romney had 7 weeks to deal with the issue. Only if he really wanted to be president. The fix is in.
Meanwhile the media is scouring every detail of Trey Gowdy's life right now in the hope that they can find a way to make this story about him. They will be reviewing every case he prosecuted and probably talking with victims, perps or even witnesses.
If Barry REALLY wants to bring those responsible for the murders of four Americans in Benghazi to justice, I suggest he start with the U.S. State Department including the former Secretary of State.
Oh, so now that the MSM is getting involved, they’re still protecting Obama, by going after Hillary,
Meanwhile back at the HQ of the Moron Majority of Voters this will register as .001 on their political Richter scale.
With the constant static from many of the Republican voters because he is a Mormon. He had the answers but never got the chance with the MSM trashing him.. So the ignorant got their wish, King Obama.
Not necessarily. The State Department and the Secretary of State were charged with doing his bidding.
President Obama is, himself, responsible for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. The Secretary of State is merely his accomplice.
Good work. Should have a thread of its own IMO
Thank you. I have posted it quite a few times though. Don’t want to wear people out with it.
Hillary has Hell to pay.
Hillary’s entire adult life is about criminal coverup.
Ain’t that the truth.
Now...if we could some how involve Justin Beiber into this people might pay attention.
It's so filthy they would much rather stonewall and see what happens.
Congress cannot compel the Executive but can only coerce.
But this GOP, in an election year, will not use its coercive power of purse or impeachment.
Only a groundswell of the American People putting Obama's polling numbers in the toilet...and those of all in Congress who support him...can turn this.
Otherwise, Stalemate by Stonewall.
You should send it to other friendly media.
My take is that Barry had been upstairs with Jarrett all day concocting the lie. Meanwhile his people in the situation room had their hands tied because he didn't come down once to discuss events.
I think Barry invented the video thing...and they all including Hillary propogated it.
