Fox News recently broke a story on memos that were received from Judicial Watch, which clearly shows that Obama lied about the rise of ISIS and the movement of weapons from Libya to Syria ahead of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
By the way, does anyone see a similarity in the dates- 9/11 ?
Obama claimed that Benghazi was simply a demonstration against a film about the Prophet Muhammad that ended up becoming violent – these documents prove this was another lie of his “transparency” he promised all of the American people in 2008.
One memo details that the Obama administration knew weapons were flowing into Syria from Benghazi – the U.S. was running these guns.
Another memo dated Sept. 16th, 2012, shows how the Obama administration concluded that the attack had been planned for at least 10 days, not the result of a spontaneous protest.
And, yet another memo illustrates how the Obama administration knew of the ISIS threat and even predicted the formation of a caliphate a full 17 months before Obama stated that ISIS was merely a ‘junior varsity team.’
Judicial Watch reported that on April 18, 2014, it obtained 41 new Benghazi-related State Department documents (see documents HERE) They include a newly declassified email (see Rhodes-Email) showing then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser, Ben Rhodes and other Obama administration public relations officials attempting to orchestrate a campaign to “reinforce” President Obama and to portray the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack as being “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.” Other documents show that State Department officials initially described the incident as an “attack” and a possible kidnap attempt.
The documents were released as result of a June 21, 2013, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the Department of State (See 155527800-State-Dept-13-951 lawsuit) (No. 1:13-cv-00951)) to gain access to documents about the controversial talking points used by then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice for a series of appearances on television Sunday news programs on September 16, 2012. Judicial Watch had been seeking these documents since October 18, 2012.
The document lists as a “Goal“: “To underscore that these protests are rooted in an internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”
Rhodes returns to the “internet video” scenario later in the email, the first point in a section labeled “Top-lines”:
[W]e’ve made our views on this video crystal clear. The United States government had nothing to do with it. We reject its message and its contents. We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence. And we are working to make sure that people around the globe hear that message.
Among the top administration PR personnel who received the Rhodes memo were White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Deputy Press Secretary Joshua Earnest, then-White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, then-White House Deputy Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, then-National Security Council Director of Communications Erin Pelton, Special Assistant to the Press Secretary Howli Ledbetter, and then-White House senior adviser and political strategist David Plouffe.
In another email, sent by former Deputy Spokesman at U.S. Mission to the United Nations, Payton Knopf to Susan Rice, on September 12, 2012, he wrote:
“Responding to a question about whether it was an organized terror attack, Toria said that she couldn’t speak to the identity of the perpetrators but that it was clearly a complex attack.”
In another email dated September 11, 2012, senior adviser, Eric Pelofsky, wrote to Susan Rice:
“As reported, the Benghazi compound came under attack and it took a bit of time for the ‘Annex’ colleagues and Libyan February 17 brigade to secure it. One of our colleagues was killed – IMO Sean Smith. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was visiting Benghazi this week is missing. U.S. and Libyan colleagues are looking for him…”
Rice later appeared multiple times and knowingly lied to the American public. However, she was only one of many who lied. Both Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton knowingly and willingly lied to the families of the victims and the American people about the attacks in Benghazi.
Clearly, Benghazi became a coverup and at the center of it was an orchestrated lie, which was centered on a video with ties to the company that created the Obamacare website and that was produced by a Muslim tied to the Obama Justice Department.
