The government watchdog organization Judicial Watch has obtained emails that show a senior White House official advised then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to blame a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video for the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya ( “Benghazi message linked to politics” ). The Obama administration did not want the American people to think that President Obama had failed in the fight against terrorism weeks before the critically important 2012 elections.
Ever since the Benghazi terrorist attack the Obama administration, with significant backing from the liberal media, has attempted to hide the truth about what happened. To cover their failures in combating terrorism, administration officials told lies, saying it was not a pre-planned terrorist attack, even when they knew that to be an absolute falsehood.
To make matters worse, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the families of the four Americans killed the same story. To lie to the American people is unforgiveable. To lie to the family of those patriots killed serving their country is despicable.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
