Obama Shot First - Aimed Later





Even before Defense Secretary Leon Panetta contradicted the initial story about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, today, Obama administration officials told ABC News they were concerned after the White House began pushing the line that the attack was spontaneous and not the work of terrorists.


Events were too uncertain, and suspicions had been aroused, officials said.


Panetta today said that the attack that killed four Americans on the anniversary of 9/11 was not only carried out by terrorists — it was pre-meditated.


“As we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place,” Panetta told reporters, “it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack.”


The White House first suggested the attack was spontaneous — the result of an anti-Muslim video that incited mobs throughout the region.


“Let’s be clear, these protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said on September 14.


When ABC News pressed Carney on whether that included the Benghazi attack, in which U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American men were killed, Carney said, “we certainly don’t know. We don’t know otherwise. We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack.”

The problem is that they didn't even bother to coordinate their misinformation among themselves.
Different agencies/representatives came out with different stories..Carney, Rice, WH spokespeople.
Meanwhile the Libyan President said it was a planned coordinated attack within 2 days and the press ignored him.
Within 48 hours most European intel sources also said it was a planned attack.

The administration bungled this up from the start and should have come clean much sooner than they did.

They can't even tell lies competently.

After all these years of practice, you'd think they would have it down.

Intercepts showed AQ terrorists celebrating success hours after Benghazi attack « Hot Air

Cover up or complete incompetence, neither is excusable.

How true is THAT!!!

You can also tell when Obama is ready to lie since he stutters right before the lie spews forth.

I'm afraid I would have to wear chest waders to one of Carney's performances. He lies about as poorly as his boss does.

As was said this morning on FOX News, no one died as a result of the Watergate Coverup.
