There’s a reason the White House initially insisted (for a pitifully long period of time) that the attack on the US consulate in Libya was a spontaneous uprising that wasn’t in any way a pre-meditated terrorism event. That reason is simple: If the White House admitted it was a planned terrorist attack, the president would have looked really bad for not canceling all this neat stuff:
New information reveals President Barack Obama conducted interviews with entertainment magazines and posed for a photo spread last Friday as American embassies burned and 21 countries erupted into anti-American protests.
Instead of spending precious time dealing with the developing crisis in the Mid East and with his foreign policy scheme in a total freefall, on Friday morning, September 14, Obama was giving an interview to the entertainment magazine People en Español and participating in a photo session with photographer Omar Cruz.
This interview was not on his public schedule and was hidden from the public.
Friday, September 14th was the same day that four flag-draped coffins of those killed at the U.S. Libyan embassy arrived at Andrews Air Force base.
The interview came to public attention when individuals who work for the magazine tweeted about their visit after the event was over.
Only in the last day or two has anybody connected to the White House begrudgingly admitted that yes, it was a terrorist attack. Gutsy call!
It’s now being reported that there was never an anti-American demonstration outside the US consulate, but that the whole thing was a planned terrorist attack.
And Hillary’s “the concerned Libyans on scene carried Ambassador Stevens from the consulate to the hospital” line from the other day? Yeah, that’s not sounding entirely accurate.
Maybe we should excuse the administration. After all, in spite of the photo shoots and entertainment magazine interviews, they were obviously hard at work designing a new flag poster to sell to their cult followers:
That reminded more than a few of something else.
