President Obama guilty of deceiving American people following Benghazi attacks.
Documents recently released by a Freedom of Information Act Request revealed that President Obama was directly involved with deceiving Americans following the Benghazi attack, Conservative Tribune reports.
The attack killed four Americans.
A FOIA request showed that Obama was complicit in creating a false narrative in order to quell the heat he had been receiving:
“A September 11, 2012, email sent at 6:21 p.m. by State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland to Meehan [Bernadette Meehan, a spokesperson for the National Security Council], Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, and Clinton’s personal aide Jacob Sullivan shows that the State Department deferred to the White House on the official response to the Benghazi attack. Referencing pending press statements by Barack Obama and Clinton, Nuland wrote: ‘We are holding for Rhodes [then-White House deputy strategic communications adviser] clearance. BMM [Meehan], pls advise asap.’
“Meehan responded three minutes later, at 6:24 p.m.: ‘Ben is good with these and is on with Jake now too.’” Source
Furthermore, an email from Rashad Hussain, the president’s special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, reportedly showed that Obama intended to blame the Benghazi attacks on a YouTube video.
“I am sure you are considering putting a statement on the film and the related violence. In addition to the condemnation of the disgusting depictions, it will be important to emphasize the need to respond in a way that is consistent with Islamic principles, i.e. not engaging in violence and taking innocent life …”
Another email by Ben Rhodes to Ambassador Susan Rice revealed that the “goal” was to “underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video” as opposed to “a broader failure or policy.” Source
Don’t expect leftist media outlets to hold the president accountable for this blatant act of deception.
With the mainstream media in his back pocket, Barack Obama successfully lied about Benghazi without consternation from the general public.
In fact, the president has left behind a trail of broken promises and falsehoods since his inauguration in 2008.
