WHOPPERS: The 6 Biggest Lies About Benghazi

by BEN SHAPIRO, Breitbart

On Wednesday, an email emerged from White House in which national security aide Ben Rhodes instructed UN Ambassador Susan Rice – copying President Obama’s entire political team at the White House – that her goal on the Sunday shows following the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi should be to “underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”

That email demonstrates that the White House lied when it said it did not skew for political reasons the talking points provided to Rice; Rice then appeared on the Sunday shows and claimed that a YouTube video lay at the root of the terrorist attacks. Although White House press secretary Jay Carney suggested that the White House talking points merely reflected the best available information provided by the CIA, that was clearly untrue; CIA deputy director Michael Morell testified last month that when Rice “talked about the video, my reaction was, that’s not something the analysts have attributed this attack to.”

But that’s hardly the only lie from this White House surrounding Benghazi. Here, then, are the top six top lies told by the White House with regard to the terrorist attacks that ended in the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

The Obama Administration Did All It Could To Protect American Personnel in Benghazi. Thursday on Capitol Hill, retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell, who was Deputy Director for Intelligence and Knowledge Development Directorate for AFRICOM during Benghazi, testified:

There are accounts of time, space and capability discussions of the question, could we have gotten there in time to make a difference. Well, the discussion is not in the “could or could not” in relation to time, space and capability—the point is we should have tried. As another saying goes: “Always move to the sound of the guns.” It is with a sense of duty as a retired General officer that I respectfully submit these thoughts and perspectives.

Lovell further testified that the State Department submitted no request for military force to the best of his knowledge.

    One fast and easy Question, does anyone, left or right, believe anything Obama or his party says anymore? I know that I disbelieve everything I hear coming from this “president”, his party and the MSM. Opens mouth and out comes more lies seems to be what Obama is all about.

      Heck, that’s the ONLY thing he is good at…..
      But you know, according to Muslim law, they can lie to anyone that is not a Muslim and it is acceptable, the ONLY ones they cannot lie to are another Muslim….
      You don’t hear him lying to them do you?

    Then we have of course many more. For me seven is that nothing could be done at that time. We know for a fact that within +30 minutes of the attack both Dempsey and Paneta knew what was going on from Gen Ham. We also have rumors that Ham was told to stand down and refused the order and was getting a SPEC OPS team ready to go when he was arrested. Eight: There were no assets in the area. Another big whopper. Both a armed drone and a AC-130 SPOOKY were up and could have rendered assitance between +30 and +60 minutes on the attack. No one had to die except Obama’s brothers. The muslims.

    Nothing to see here. ObOzO had to get ready for his trip to Vegas. What’s more important than saving lives? Raising money of course.
