#BenghaziGate: Intel pointed to terrorism within hours; Will lapdog media cover or cover up?

Covered up evidence? Pfft. President Obama and his administration simply evolved, as they’re apt to do.

You see, blaming the guy behind some dumb YouTube video for “spontaneous” violence was just part of that noble process of evolution. Just because the White House knew the Sept. 11 “bump in the road” was a planned terror attack doesn’t mean officials could come out and say the “t” word. That’s reserved for extremists like military vets, natch.

Eli Lake expands on the growing evidence that within hours of the Benghazi assault, intel showed it was a t-t-t-t-terrorist attack.

In the hours following the 9/11 anniversary attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. intelligence agencies monitored communications from jihadists affiliated with the group that led the attack and members of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb(AQIM), the group’s North African affiliate.

In the communications, members of Ansar al-Sharia (AAS) bragged about their successful attack against the American consulate and the U.S. ambassador, according to three U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast anonymously because they were not authorized to talk to the press.

Read the whole thing.

Obama canoodled and lied while embassies burned.

Nine days. The White House spent nine days apologizing, bowing and groveling. Nine days of blaming a cruddy video and attacking freedom of speech. Nine days of lying. And President Obama and Hillary Clinton did so flanked by the caskets of murdered Americans.

Great questions.

Another great question from Gabriel Malor:

More than a week later, the FBI flew a team to Tripoli, but that is as far as they got. They have not traveled to Benghazi. They have not examined the scene. They have not collected evidence. They have not interviewed the people the Libyans have arrested. It has been fifteen days since the attack.

Why is this not a scandal yet?

Paging the lapdog media. Lapdog media? Hello?

[I]f what I’m seeing today is any indication, the media remains as guilty as the Obama Administration in what’s now known as ‘Benghazi-Gate’. Because the more proof of the White House cover up that’s discovered, the more the media disengages from the story.

Revoltingly disgraceful.

    TSA stopped a half-dozen “terrorist” attacks — or more accurately intercepted a few FAILED attacks. Catching the guy whose drawers didn’t explode doesn’t exactly count as a “prevented” attack. And of course Dear Leader ordered the hit on Late Terrorist #1, and directed the operation live from the hotseat, of course.

    But I’m sure this was just another instance of “workplace violence.”

    Why LIE? He went skip to the ‘loo my darling rather than attend the Daily Briefings. Does anyone in their right mind believe the pack of liars that he read them on his Ipad?

    Why should it surprise anyone. Hello he covered up his administrations fubar with Fast and Furious, and Solyndra why should this be any different.

      And now Univision is going to run a special on the others Fast&Furious guns killed in Mexico.

    Take a look at this report from Reuters soon after the attack…anybody heard of Marines being wounded or killed? 37 evacuated from Benghazi? Where are they?

    Email Gov. Christie and ask him to bring up this issue w/Stephanopoulos on Sunday and to not back down. He’s good at not backing down.

    Of course it’s not going to be covered. If it’s not damaging or somehow embarrassing to Mitt Romney, it’s not worth reporting.

    If this were a republican president, the media would be having an open discussion about whether or not he should resign in disgrace.

  • EastValleyConservative

    This man has been committing treason like no other and it goes untouched, unchallenged, and UNreported. If we are lucky enough to get him out of the W.H., I guess we will have to shine a spotlight on the cockroaches that are the MSM. Every day, relentlessly.

    You want another angle, check out The Project, a documentary presented by The Blaze TV.

    Your White House and President are merely puppets for the implementation of the Caliphate in America. It’s why Obama and Clinton can stand beside the flag draped coffins of murdered Americans and spout the Muslim Brotherhood party line. It’s why Obama can stand in front of the UN and sell the First Amendment down the river.

    Rise up now or lose your country.

    Since Watergate, the libs have always said “The cover-up is worse than the crime.” Watergate, ah, how quaint. Well, I don’t know, the Benghazi “crime” was pretty bad – not that you’d know it from the lapdog coverage. But the cover-up is driving me crazy!

    The entire Obama Administration, from the President down to the lowest staffer, should be FORCED to resign by the people of the United States. There isn’t a half-ounce of INTEGRITY among the entire group, if that. That’s still more than there is in the media, but only by thousandths of a gram – maybe. Obama shouldn’t even be on the ballot in November. I pray that he will get less than 20% of the vote. I can’t ask for less, because there are too many people dependent upon government for their very existence – both mentally and physically. God, what a mess this administration has made! Our founders are so ashamed of us right now they’re tunneling deeper to separate themselves from us. A Pox upon Washington, and all that are involved with this administration willingly. May they have running sores that will not heal. May they have fevers that will not end. May they all die and go where they belong — the lowest level of Dante’s Hell.
