All Americans should read this blow by blow account of what really happened in Benghazi, Libya. Powerline blog provided these excerpts from a State Department transcript. Here’s the link: http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/10/what-happened-in-benghazi.php.
You can only draw two conclusions. First, that Obama lied blatantly about the YouTube video. It’s quite breathtaking in its enormity, really. Second, the callousness of the administration. People here were watching what played out. They saw what was going on. They saw that the lives of these people at the embassy were being taken. No drone was sent in immediately to attack the growing throng. The president had to have known about it, yet went to bed without doing anything and then went to a fundraiser in Las Vegas.
If anyone is so delusional as to think big government helps in any way, this should dispel it. The Obama administration didn’t even lend help to their hand picked friends.
The next few days should be interesting to watch. Will Hillary Clinton take the fall or will she throw somebody else under the bus? How will Obama handle this at the Townhall Debate Tuesday? Surely Mitt Romney will pounce.
There are so many unanswered questions in this whole affair. Why did Stevens return to Benghazi? What was the immediacy? Why no protection on 9/11? Where did the rebels get the guns?
A theory goes that Stevens went back to Benghazi to hide the connection between the Obama administration’s outfitting the rebels with guns, as in Fast and Furious. There was something that had to be retrieved, hidden or destroyed.
This is a very suspicious event and needs to be unraveled quickly.
