By now, everyone should realize that at some point prior to last nights debate that the Obama campaign contacted Crowley to convince her to throw a month’s worth of recent history down the memory hole.
The fallacious assertion that Obama called the Libyan attack “terrorism” on day one is nothing more than an attempt to re-write the last month despite al evidence to the contrary. Â Two weeks afterwards, UN Ambassdor Rice had already debased herself on national tv, Carney was hunkered down in hiding, Obama speechified at the UN mentioning the Youtube video a half dozen times and the media did their best to try and bury the story.
Well, a funny thing happened yesterday when a reporter who Obama was joking with started asking about Libya. Â Suddenly he just clams up and walks off.
Are these the actions of someone who called it a terrorist attack on day one? Â He was keeping his powder dry for the debate. Â Magic powder. Â With Crowley as his chubby assistant who helped to saw Romney in half on an a point he got right.
The transcript of the WH garden speech on Sept. 12 says flat out that the Libyan attack was “senseless violence” because of a video denigrating Islam. Â The only question now is when did Obama administration officials / Attack Watch contact Crowley to risk their fingers feeding Crowley this line of BS that she gobbled up like so many Ho-Hos.
President Thin Skin did not allow Republicans to eviscerate him on the Benghazi attack for a month without responding and claiming that it was a terrorist attack.Â They invented this new defense and Crowley colluded with them.
For the sake of argument, let’s pretend Obama did say it was a terrorist attack on day one.Â So, your embassy is attacked.Â You don’t know if your Ambassador or the staff are hurt or killed.
You go to bed.Â Then, the next day you attend two fundraisers rather than meeting with your National Security team and speaking with Libyan counterparts to catch the perpetrators.Â His 3 am call came at 5pm and he let it go to voicemail.Â A month later he claims he sent us an e-mail about it and didn’t get a read receipt.
