I caught a clip on the news last night that said the White House is now saying that two units were sent to Benghazi to help but were turned back.
My first reaction is what a pile of bullpuckie!
Ever since the attack was first made public, Obama and his gang have continued to stall, hesitate, lie, change the story and then lie, over and over and over again. And this American is getting sick and tired of it!
First it was a protest turned violent and then it was finally identified as a terrorist attack by the White House after everyone else in the entire world knew it was a terrorist attack. Since that time, getting information from Obama, Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta has been like pulling teeth the old fashioned way – painfully slow.
Only after some members of Congress and the media started their own investigations did the White House start releasing a trickle more information. And it always seems to be just enough to counter the latest claims made by those investigating.
In the latest convenient lie, some news media this week claimed to have hard copy documents proving that Obama failed to act to save the Americans trapped in the U.S. Consulate compound. A number of people have come out and stated that had the order been given, a counter terrorist group could have been on the ground at Benghazi within 2 hours. We know that the two former Navy SEALs were alive for 6 hours of the attack. Some reports have gone so far as to accuse Obama of purposely not giving the order to send in help.
Like every other piece of ‘official’ information on the attack, they are now saying that two units were dispatched to help but they were both turned away.
Do you really believe that? Was at least one highly trained and armed counter terrorism unit dispatched to Benghazi where they were turned back by the terrorists? I find that hard to believe. What I find even harder to believe is that this information has only been released after documentation showing otherwise was made public.
As Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) stated:
“This president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the American people or he is so grossly incompetent that he is not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces.”
The way Obama and White House have publicly responded to the nation on Benghazi reminds me of a kid who has been caught in a lie by his parents. Every time the parents ask the kid for the truth, the story changes into another lie. Then that lie eventually leads to another lie and so forth and so on. Somewhere down the trail of deception, the kid is ensnared and trapped by his string of lies and he ends up convicting himself. I only hope that happens sooner with Obama and company and that they are duly punished for their treachery.
