The Obama administration’s massive web of lies is finally starting to collapse under its own weight as we’re seeing more and more evidence that directly contradicts their version of the facts surrounding the events in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 and the following days.
In a hard-hitting op-ed for Breitbart, Pamela Geller, President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), details how documents recently released are exposing the Obama administration’s massive coverup of what they knew and when regarding the Benghazi attacks.
We’ve reported that an email released to Judicial Watch via a FOIA lawsuit is the “smoking gun” of the entire coverup, showing how the White House directed Susan Rice to claim that the attack was over a video and not an act of terrorism.
But Geller notes that this is just the beginning, as the documents reveal numerous other lies that the Obama administration perpetuated to create a narrative that would be favorable to the President during his campaign for reelection.
In a memo from former Deputy Spokesman at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations Payton Knopf to Susan Rice and others, Knopf provides “Guidance on Events in Libya 9/12/12. (Today’s initial guidance from NSS and State).” In it, he gives a timeline (“the tick tock”) of events on that day and quotes the State Department’s Victoria Nuland as saying that “it was clearly a complex attack.”
In the same memo, Knopf discusses Obama’s “tick tock” during Benghazi. The president was made aware of the attack on the afternoon of September 11, 2012 “as he started his weekly meeting with the Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.” […]
But what’s salient here is that according to Benghazi transcripts of defense testimony, just minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi was attacked, senior defense officials, both civilian and military, were told that it was a “terrorist attack.” So why did the Obama White House promote a false narrative, and why didn’t defense officials speak out about this false claim?
Obviously, if the testimony given by Deputy CIA Director Michael Morrell and others is true, the intelligence community knew very soon that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and (you’d think) Obama would’ve been informed of that at his briefing with defense personnel.
These documents also indicate that administration officials knew on the night of September 11 that Ambassador Stevens had been killed, yet Obama apparently wasn’t informed of this fact until the next morning.
