Why won't Obama admit it?
Why won't Obama just say it?
What happened at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on 9/11/12, the murder and torture of Ambassador Chris Stevens, and the murders of three other Americans, was a pre-planned ACT OF TERRORISM.
Libyan President Mohamed Magarief has been saying it for quite a while now, that the anti-Islam film Obama, his administration, and his political allies claim was the cause of the unrest that led to their murders actually had NOTHING to do with what we now know was an orchestrated terrorist attack.
Obama and Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice and the others lied to the American people.
They lied about a terrorist attack on our country on the anniversary of 9/11.
Now, Jay Carney has said the T-word, but Obama refuses to say it.
The United States believes the attack on its Consulate in Libya that killed four Americans including the ambassador to the country was an act of terrorism, the White House has said, terming it "inexcusable."No question, the 9/11/12 terrorist attack was inexcusable.
"It was a terrorist attack and it was an inexcusable attack," the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters abroad Air Force One, when asked about Republican criticism that the US President Barack Obama so far has not termed it as a terrorism attack.
"It is certainly the case that it is our view as an administration, the President's view, that it was a terrorist attack," Carney said.
"Our position is that it was a terrorist attack. It is, I think by definition, a terrorist attack when there is a prolonged assault on an embassy with weapons," he said.
"The broader questions here about who participated, what led to the attack on the facility in Benghazi -- all those questions are under investigation at two levels, by the FBI and by the Accountability Review Board established by (the) Secretary (of State, Hillary) Clinton to look at issues of security in Benghazi and security at other diplomatic facilities," he noted.
Top Republican Senators welcomed such a statement coming from the White House but said that such a thing coming two weeks after the attack is reflective of the failed policies of the US President towards the Middle East.
"We recognize that Al-Qaeda involvement in a terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Libya is an inconvenient truth for a President who claims to be destroying Al-Qaeda," said Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham.
"But it is not too much to ask why the President and his Administration have taken so long to state what has appeared obvious for a long time about what really happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
This is just one more example of this President's failure to lead in the Middle East and how that failure has threatened America's national security interests. Now is not the time to lead from behind," they alleged.
Addressing an election rally, Congressman Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential candidate, alleged that Obama's foreign policy is blowing up in American faces.
"Look around the world. It looks like Tehran in 1979 but in about a dozen capitals around the world. They're burning our flags at our embassies. They're climbing our walls at our embassies. They're taking down our flags and putting up the flags of the Muslim Brotherhood. They just killed four of our diplomats in Benghazi. And Iran is that much closer toward a nuclear weapon," he said.
What's also inexcusable is that it took weeks for the White House to get off this anti-Islam film BS and be honest.
It's inexcusable that they refused to call it what it was - a terrorist attack, not outrage over a movie trailer, not a "mob action."
It's inexcusable that Obama has lied to us, and allowed others to lie for him, about al Qaeda's involvement.
This cover-up, their reprehensible scapegoating of the filmmaker, is inexcusable. Obama is such a wimp that he won't personally address the American people and admit that a terrorist attack occurred on his watch.
The Islamists have been attacking us for decades, during several administrations, yet Obama won't say it happened.
He doesn't want to take responsibility just weeks before the election.
What does that say about Obama as a leader and as a man?
It's not enough for Jay Carney to say Obama thinks of the 9/11/12 attack as an act of terrorism. That's cowardly.
Obama has to say it. He's the president and we were attacked by terrorists. This lame dance makes Obama look so sleazy.
He should quit playing political games and act like the president.
Americans serving our country in Libya were killed, and Obama doesn't have the decency to tell the truth about it.
