Administration Is Continuing To Lie To The American People

Administration walks tightrope, in carefully worded accounts of Libya violence

The Obama administration is walking a tightrope on its explanation over what led to the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya — sticking to its claim that the attack was “spontaneous” while allowing that the situation may have been exploited by militants

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said as much when she told ABC News’ “This Week” that “as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons.” 

This, by itself, is not so far off from what the Libyans are saying. The administration just won’t go so far as to call this a coordinated terrorist attack. To the contrary, they still describe the whole situation as spontaneous.

This in itself is a walk-back of they had stated earlier.  They had contended that a group of demonstrators spontaneously erupted into violence.  After a weekend of absurd lies by Ambassador Rice, losing our diplomatic credibility on a global scale, the Obama administration has changed their story a bit by allowing the idea that the demonstrations could have possibly been exploited by militants.

But, even that is a lie.  From a first hand account of a wounded guard

The first shot was fired about 9.45pm. “There were no demonstrators outside at all,” he said. “There was a national security (police) car outside – when we heard shooting we then heard the car switch on its engine and speed up the road.”

He said the attack was well co-ordinated and came in from three sides, and that the armed American guards had only fired back after coming under attack.

He himself was hit by grenade shrapnel, and then was shot through the knee when the first wave of attackers came in. He said those he heard speak had local, Benghazi accents, though he added that two men “looked foreign”.

He said some of the attackers wore masks, and many had their trouser legs rolled up – a mark of Salafi, or purist, Muslims and a common feature in members of Ansar al-Sharia.

He said some attackers wanted to shoot him, but another said he was Libyan and should be spared. This man dragged him out of the compound telling him to say nothing so that other attackers thought he was one of them, and he then passed out and woke up in hospital.

He said he was convinced by this that the attackers did not know each other – otherwise they would have known he was not part of the group – and thus were more likely to be a group of Islamists gathered for the purpose of the assault.

Now, not only do we look weak internationally, we also look stupid and dishonest.  Well played, Barry.

    Mass demos in Lebanon, shouting “Death to America”, “America Is the Great Satan”, demanding that the world outlaws insults to religion (some Hesbollah boss).

    So much for the reset in the relationship to the Muslim world.
    I’m linking to this because I was keen on the “America is the Great Satan” quote, which the Iranians have used since the revolution. So this is a near exact replica of the Carter era.
