CNN: None of Our Sources Corroborate Obama’s False Libya Story

Gee, it almost appears as if they’re lying and have something to hide.

It’s quite obvious they’re more concerned with Obama’s re-election. Chris Stevens died, Obama lied.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, in an interview with Fox News, suggested the Obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the deadly consulate attack in Libya to fit a convenient story line, that it was spontaneous violence and not pre-meditated terrorism.

Rep. Rogers, R-Mich., specifically faulted the administration for suggesting the attack was an escalation of Muslim protests against an anti-Islam video produced in the U.S. and then doubling down on that theory.

“I argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on TV in Pakistan with U.S. taxpayers dollars,” Rogers said, referring to an American government ad that aired in Pakistan condemning the video and the violence.

“I think those are all serious mistakes that we’re paying the price for,” Rogers told Fox News. He suggested the problem stemmed from the Obama administration seeing the intelligence as “what they wanted it to be — not what it was.”

    As Krauthammer says, “Osama is dead, Al-Qaeda is alive.”

    Nobody’s asking why our Ambassador was in Benghazi without protection with two weapons recovery guys. Something the administration isn’t telling us about the weapons sold to the Libyan rebels???

    That could be part of it. The mess is the result of multiple bad decisions, including joining in on a war for oil waged by France, Italy and Britain. Why would we expect them to handle any other part of it better?
