Is the President telling the truth about the Benghazi Embassy Attack?Sources close to the investigation of the attack that left four Americans dead, including US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, deny that a spontaneous uprising over a video that showed Islam in a negative light had anything to do with the events that unfolded on the night of the savage attacks that led to the murder of the Embassy staff. The administrations take on events leading up to the attack is that an uprising over the video spun out of control and quickly engulfed the Americans in a brutal scenario from which there was no escape. According to intelligence on the ground, there were no ongoing protests of any substance that could have morphed into such a position as to allow an attack of such a vicious and prolonged nature that would have resulted in such destruction or devastation. Only a coordinated plan by Islamic insurgents bent on the complete annihilation of the American presence would have led to such a sustainable duration of destruction.
Were warnings ignored? According to several sources, multiple warnings and evidence of an impending strike were ignored and advisories of suspect activity went unheeded by the Benghazi Consulate even as previous attacks and a pattern of aggression became ever more obvious to even the most untrained of observers`. Could the administrations spin be falling apart in the ever increasing display of facts, hardly! Doubling down on the position of a spontaneous attack, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said as much when she told ABC News' "This Week" that "as the events unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons." As if a simple demonstration with a few dozen protester`s suddenly went viral resulting in a full scale assault with heavy armament and coordinated assault tactics.
Denial is the first line of defense when confronted with a situation that tends to portray oneself in a negative light. The facade of Obama foreign policy that so wished to promote a more democratic and free Muslim world is fast imploding on itself as the reality of wishful thinking and faculty lounge idealism gives way to the reality that appeasement and propaganda can only live in the fantasy world of dreamers and pretenders. The 'leading from behind' philosophy that seemed such a grand plan to rid the world of Qaddafi had a fatal flaw that is quickly being exposed no matter the attempts to mask it. Who and what were the so called 'freedom fighters' we were supporting? If these were supposedly only suppressed souls yearning for a better life from under the rule of a madman, they have a strange way of showing their gratitude!
