Who Lied About the Attack on 9/11/12?

It is incredible that democrats keep blathering about Romney lying, when we have the shock and disgust of seeing the president and his administration lying to us about the security of Americans. Unbelievable .

I'm sorry but what was said about operation Iraqi Freedom not too long after it had been started?

Mission Accomplished? When it clearly wasn't.

Lol!!!!!

Maybe so Harry but they haven't went away, just relocated. Perhaps they are weaker and I think Bush had a lot to do with that. I do give Obama credit for continuing some of the pressure but I don't think he did us any favors by being so PC and apologizing for the US. Killing with kindness has been a failure, the still hate us

I'd say al Queada has been "on the run" since Sept. 12, 2001.

I don't know that it would meant less votes for Obama or more conservatives coming out (that's ther real reason Romney lost but that's another conversation) but the fact is, the American voter should have known. And even at that, I don't know if it would have made a difference but still...

As while Obama never specifically stated terrorism had been defeated (can you defeat a slogan) he certainly implied that it had on numerous occasions, including the Foreign Affairs debate. He did specifically state numerous times that he had Al Qaeda on the run and that he was responsible for OBL’s death.

He’s an arrogant one, willing to take credit on anything good but everything bad is always someone else’s fault. At least Nixon had the stones to stand up and take responsibility. I guess this guy is no Dick Nixon.

What will be interesting to watch is the attitude of the press corps now. I think they have treated obama with kid gloves mostly up to now. With the AP scandal, I wonder if there may be a little less fawning and a few more tough questions. Time will tell( no pun intended).

And I agree “that sooner or later more will come out despite what Obama apologist say.”

Aaron, I think I see what you mean. Are you speculating that fewer voters might have chosen Obama if Gen. Petraeus had, before the election, “countered the Presidents line policy win, the killing if OBL and the subsequent defeat of terrorism”?

Like many speculations, that can cut both ways. More voters might have chosen Obama if Gen. Patraeus had, before the election, countered the narrative that the talking points had a political motive.

Unprovable speculations aside, I’d like to address another part of your statement by asking when Obama said that bin Laden’s death led to “the subsequent defeat of terrorism.”

I don’t recall Obama saying terrorism had been defeated. I do recall him saying that Al Qaeda’s “core” had been “degraded.”

Benghazi was home to rebel forces in 2010, many of which fought against Americans for years in both Iraq and Afghanistan that sought to overthrow Gaddafi and end his 40 year reign of power. Despite their background, our CIA aided those rebels in their overthrow of Gaddafi from the American Consulate in Benghazi.

According to one Senator on the Sunday Morning talk shows, the SD felt like Benghazi was a CIA outpost thus they were responsible for protection and security. After the attack, when the CIA started blaming State, saying they had given numerous warnings and requested increased security, State essentially said, it’s your baby, you deal with it.

Given the fact that CIA used the Consulate to aid the Libyan Civil War and the number of attacks leading up to 9/11/12, there is much more to this story. The more I read about this situation, the more I’m convinced that sooner or later more will come out despite what Obama apologist say.

In light of these abuses of power, still think we who don't trust Govt are the nuts? Does my argument that the mental health components of the Manchin Toomey bill will open up a can of govt intrusion, abuse and mishandled personal information to be used against political opponents?

And now we have the AP being put under DOJ scrutiny by having their phone communications monitored.

Not much of a surprise really considering the surveillance apparatus that has taken hold since 9-11.

Al Qaeda cant be defeated. Its a snake with many many heads and the mere act of trying to defeat them just makes more terrorists.

That does not mean that we should stop going after them though. Its just going to be a threat we will have to constantly defend ourselves from.

He testified a week AFTER the election and his testimony essentially countered the Presidents line policy win, the killing if OBL and the subsequent defeat of terrorism.

What happens if the General testifies in September and essentially shows that the White House is not only lying about the reason behind the attack but that Al Qaeda has not been defeated and the Presidents win really isn't a win?

Aaron, you wrote, "Time will tell."

I couldn't agree more. I'm still open-minded about this.

I'm not sure what you mean about the timing of Patraeus' testimony, etc., but I will consider it with an open mind.

"When Patraeus said the change was for “intelligence, not political reasons,” that impressed me."

I’m not so sure. Between the timing of Patraeus’ testimony and the fact that the Obama Administration sent Susan Rice out to lie on the Sunday Morning talk shows tells me that there’s more to this than meets the eye. Initially, I thought it was because Obama didn’t want to acknowledge the fact that Al Qaeda was still operational despite his asserting otherwise for political reasons dealing with the election but now I’m not so sure.

After hearing a Senator yesterday on the talk show circuit claim the change in talking points was a result of inter-agency infighting, it added to my belief that someone is trying to cover something big up. I’m just not sure exactly what it was. But the fact that this was a CIA base in a recent overthrown country as part of the Arab Spring on 9/11 leads me to believe that this indeed could be 1985 all over again.

Time will tell.
