THE NUMBER OF OBAMA SUPPORTERS WHO HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THE 9/11 BENGHAZI ATTACK WILL TERRIFY YOU
October 18, 2012
Americans everywhere are wondering how the Obama administration will be able to recover from such a significant and deadly intelligence error in Benghazi, Libya. The White House reportedly ignored multiple calls for additional security at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, even after the U.S. and international intelligence community warned of increased terrorist activity in Libya.
Ultimately, U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans lost their lives in a fiery terrorist attack on the 9/11 anniversary.
To make matters worse, the Obama administration repeatedly blamed an anti-Muslim YouTube video for the attack for nearly two weeks, citing a make-believe demonstration outside the U.S. compound in Libya. Of course, it was later revealed that radical Islamic terrorists were behind the attack and the video had nothing to do with it.
However, as it turns out, some of Obama’s supporters don’t even know the Benghazi attack occurred in the first place — and as they say, what you don’t know can’t hurt you.
Revealing Politics went to an Obama event at Ohio University on Oct. 17 and asked a number of the president’s supporters about the Benghazi attack. The conservative site says “most of the event attendees” had never heard of the terrorist act.
“So, what do you guys think about the situation in Benghazi?” an interviewer with Revealing Politics asks two girls.
“I have no idea,” one of them replies, giggling her head off.
One man said he thinks “the Republicans” were responsible for the attack while an alarming number of others could not identify Ambassador Stevens or recall a terrorist attack occurring in Benghazi.
The most distressing thing is…. most of those interviewed think the terrorist attack on the Benghazi Consulate on 9/11 resulting in FOUR DEAD Americans is laughable……
Obama’s quote about the 4 DEAD Americans? “NotOptimal” [Obama quote to John Stewart on the Daily Show]
Thoughts and questions:
1. If drones were above the terrorist attack at the Benghazi compound sending video in “REALTIME” and the fact that 12 reports were on the President’s desk the FOLLOWING MORNING, why did Obama and his Administration begin with and continue to promote the attack as a rebuttal to a video?
2. The speech Candy Crowley referred to at the 2nd Debate about the word terror…..Obama was speaking about the ANNIVERSARY of 9/11 and just BEFORE his mention of an ACT of terror mentioned that no religion should be denigrated..…..listen carefully from 2:53min to 3:10.
Obama only mentions “ACTS of TERROR” when speaking here:
Listen starting at 4:53 min. to 6:42.
**Listen to Martha Radditz “who has been covering this all night long” from 7:30 min to 7:42min.
” But the Ambassador was unaccounted for ..for a number of hours throughout the night; the President was told about as well”……
3. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, utilizing the caskets at Dover Air Force Base as a backdrop, still continued to promote the attack in response to a video.
Hillary Clinton: from 13:30 to 13:40 …”We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American Embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.”
Of interesting note: Hillary mentions that Obama at 16:28 min. “…came to the State Department earlier this week to grieve with us; he well understands and values the work that these men were doing for our country.”
4. At the UN on September 25, 2012, (two weeks after the Benghazi terrorist attack) Obama said the word video at least FOUR TIMES.
