Americans Died and Biden Lied

The more time that passes since the Libyan attack where our Ambassador and three other Americans were murdered, the clearer it becomes that we have been lied to. The claim that the attack was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islam film was based on no concrete information.

Thanks to the deputy assistant secretary at the State Department, we now know the state department was in touch real time, including a surveillance drone, during the four hour attack. Someone somewhere in the intelligence community was watching the mortar and RPG blasts as they happened. Video footage recovered from the consulate supports the accounts of security officers who were at the compound who told investigators that there was no spontaneous protest the night of the attack.

Nonetheless, five days after the attack, Secretary of State Clinton and UN Ambassador Rice were on TV programs stating unequivocally that the deaths of the four Americans were a result of a film protest that got out of hand. White House spokesman Jay Carney continued to say until September 20 that the attack resulted from a protest over the Internet film. Security officials responsible for our assets in Libya gave sworn testimony that they had been asking for additional security for months leading up to the attack. Not only were all of those requests denied, but the security was reduced.

What is VP Biden’s response? “We” weren’t told. Well, either Obama and Biden were told and they are lying, or they are failing to take responsibility for their Administration. This Administration refuses to be accountable even for the death of four American citizens that could have been prevented. If the President wasn’t told, why haven’t heads rolled? Why hasn’t someone come forward and said “I take responsibility for these deaths.”

The answer is that we are in an election and this is one huge cover up. Up until September 11, the Obama campaign could claim that there had been no successful terrorist attack on U.S. soil since he took office. By claiming that this was a protest, they could continue that line, so they had to try to cover it up. Now that it is clear that it was a terrorist attack, what did they do? They tried to blame Romney for politicizing it. How can anyone have confidence in Obama?
