Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2012. While they were dying, our President continued to campaign for re-election. For 14 days after their lives were lost, the Obama Administration repeatedly went on the record saying that there was a protest related to a Youtube video, and that it was NOT a terrorist attack.
Please watch this interview with Charles Woods. It is heartbreaking and shameful that our President has disregarded these American lives. Why are more people not asking questions about this? To tell a former Navy SEAL to “stand down” and not try to protect Americans lives is contradictory to everything they stand for. Tyrone Woods disregarded that order to do what he knew was right, and he gave his life trying to save the lives of others. Our President wants you to believe that this “Benghazi incident” is being over-politicized by the Romney Ryan Campaign, as if this is no big deal. Despicable.
On 9/14/2012 (3 days after the attack) the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney held a press conference where he said, “Let me be clear, these protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region, we certainly don’t know otherwise. WE HAVE NO INFORMATION TO SUGGEST THAT IT WAS A PREPLANNED ATTACK.”

Tuesday, 10/23/12, The White House knew within 2 hours of the Benghazi attack that a Islamic militant group was claiming credit for the attack. An email was sent from the State Department’s Operations Center to multiple government offices, including addresses at the White House, carrying the subject line “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack.” You can read the Rueters story. Why is the White House trying to cover this up?
On 10/16/12, our President claimed that he called it a terrorist attack the day after it happened. Watch the videos, and let us know whether it looks like Obama’s Administration is covering something up or not!

The speech that President Obama claims to have called this incident “an act of terror” in can be seen HERE. As you can see, he does not say that it was a terrorist attack, he simply states that the United States condemns this attack. Then he talks about respecting “all faiths,” and how it was “senseless violence.” Our President claims that this will not sever our ties with Libya, and that Libyans security forces tried to help our Americans. NEVER DOES HE SAY THAT THIS WAS A TERRORIST ATTACK, LIKE HE SAID DURING THE 2ND PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE ON 10/16/2012.
If our President KNEW the day after the Benghazi attack, like 99% of all Americans that saw the news stories, that it was a TERRORIST attack, why is it his administration kept repeating fabricated stories about a protest over a Youtube video?
