The Obamanites are running scared in the investigation into the coverup of the Benghazi terrorist attacks. In an apparent attempt to divert attention from what they said and did, they are employing the classic tactic of pretending their opponents said something they didn't, and then bashing them for it.

Victoria Toensing, the lawyer for some of the people who witnessed the Benghazi terrorist attacks, pointed out a few days ago that Congressman Darryl Issa had tried at least twice to get a procedure from the State Department, to clear lawyers to discuss classified information with their clients; and that the State Dept had not responded.

State Dept. spokesman Patrick Ventrell then announced on national television yesterday, that Toensing had said she herself had tried to get such clearances. He then announced that Toensing was lying. The fact that Toensing had never claimed she had tried to get clearances, was ignored by Ventrell.

The Obama administration people are clearly getting desperate, attempting such an easily-debunked fib on national television. Toensing has already responded, pointing out that the had never claimed to apply for clearances herself, and that Ventrell clearly knew it - his calling her a liar was not just an innocent mistake, but a carefully planned diversion, designed to deflect attention from the fact that the Secretary of State is stonewalling the investigation.

Publicly calling a lawyer - an officer of the Court - a liar, isn't a very good idea. You'd better be able to back it up. Clearly, the State Dept can't.

How desperate must they be, to resort to such tactics?

No doubt the usual Obama flacks will be heard from soon, trying to tell us that it was not a very big lie, it was just a little misunderstanding, not worth making a fuss over it.

That's always their response when they are trying to wiggle out of the consequences of some vile or illegal behavior, and get caught wiggling.

One would think that we have adults running our government and not a bunch of 5 year olds running around the playground crying "liar".

See?

The U.S. Department of State publicly calling you a liar, is no big deal to these people.

They are nothing if not predictable.

John Kerry is a proven liar. He will be more of a joke as Sec of State than Hillary Clinton. How many of his employees will die under his watch?

John Kerry proved himself to be a communist sympathizer in the Vietnam war. Kerry is no American.. he is a communist.
