On Tuesday afternoon FOX reporter Catherine Herridge broke the news that a Senior White House aide, Ben Rhodes, had written an email to Susan Rice, instructing her to blame the Benghazi debacle on a spontaneous uprising over an-all-but-unknown video which had appeared on YouTube. Not only was a general direction indicated but specific instructions were provided.
The FOX News story provided details:
The Rhodes email, with the subject line: “RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET,’” was sent to a dozen members of the administration’s inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Press Secretary Jay Carney. In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video…The email lists the following two goals, among others:
“To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”
“To reinforce the President and Administration’s strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges.”
FOX News wasn’t done: “The email goes on to state that the U.S. government rejected the message of the Internet video. ‘We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence,’ the email stated.”
Sound familiar? It should; that line had blared from television screens and newspapers, non-stop, and was faithfully parroted by every member of the regime from the Lyin’ King down since the Benghazi travesty took place. Mr. Rhodes must, however, be corrected on one point. The video meme is not nearly as “disgusting and reprehensible” as is the outright lie, spanning years, that the most “transparent administration in history” has tried to shovel over the dead Americans in Benghazi and the living consciousness’ of outraged Americans.
