More proof, that the Obama administration believes “terrorism” is a bad word and that merely using it in dialogue should be avoided at all costs. Speculation over the Libya attack was fairly solid — that is, that the President lied about the cause of the attack — but now that General David Petraeus has confirmed it in a congressional testimony, the allegation is grounded in fact.
After ousting himself from the CIA directorship, due to an extramarital affair, Petraeus threw the White House under the bus (rightfully so), claiming that references to “Al Qaeda involvement” in the Libya terror attack were omitted from the CIA’s original talking points.
So far, the details are pretty obscure:
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News that intelligence officials who testified in a closed-door hearing a day earlier, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Acting CIA Director Mike Morell, said they did not know who changed the talking points. He said they went out to multiple departments, including the State Department, National Security Council, Justice Department and White House.
“To me the question right now is who changed those talking points and why. … I’d say it was somebody in the administration had to have taken it out,” King affirmed. “That, to me, has to be pursued.”
This of course poses the question: If President Obama, and his conspiring acolytes in the administration, lied about this, instead calling it a “spontaneous protest” from a juvenile anti-Muslim video, what else have they lied about regarding the attack?
