It's getting harder and harder to keep up with all the White House's Benghazi-related shenanigans given that it now appears that the White House's excuse for the pre-election Libya cover-up is itself a cover up:
Last week we were told by the Administration (and the compliant media) that during her now-infamous round robin of five Sunday news shows, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice was only telling us what she was told by the intelligence community. We were also told that references to al-Qaeda were edited out of the talking points in order to avoid tipping off the attackers that we were on to them. According to a number of CBS News' sources, this simply isn't true.And ...
... if what CBS is reporting is true, this is what we know now:
usan Rice knew the information she repeated five times on five Sunday shows wasn't true.
2. The edited talking points were never meant to deceive away from the fact that what happened in Libya was a terror attack. And yet, that's exactly what Rice and the White House did for nearly two weeks.
3.Contrary to what the White House and media told us, the talking points were not edited to keep the group responsible for the attack from knowing we were on to them. Therefore...
4. We were lied to for reasons that had nothing to do with national security.
5. The media's going to allow the Obama Administration to get away with this. (Why else would CBS play down its own story the way they did this one?)
Everything goes back to the motive for this cover up, which, apparently, was to run out the clock to Election Day with a Narrative meant to hide the fact that on Obama's watch there was a successful terror attack that resulted in the murder of an American ambassador and three other Americans. And let's also not forget that just a few days before the attack at his nominating convention, Obama bragged before the whole world that "al-Qaeda is on the path to defeat." Does anyone have any doubt whatsoever how this would be playing out in the mainstream media, outside of Fox, if it had happened during a Republican administration?
And then there's all those bottom-line REAL questions about Benghazi that's aren't being asked.
