Yet, White House press secretary Jay Carney says “… this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.”
And, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice wants us to believe, “Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo… In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.”
And, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responds to the terrorist attack with, “Let me state very clearly — and I hope it is obvious — that the United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”
And, the U.S. Embassy in Cairo apparently believes that the exercise of the 1st Amendment right to free speech– IF it offends Muslims– constitutes an “abuse” of “the universal right of free speech.” Wow, that’s one step away from justifying the criminalization of speech that Muslims claim is offensive! What is this, “1984”?
It is CLEAR that the Obama Administration is guilty of a cover-up.
And about a month after the attack, it’s been revealed that “the U.S. intelligence community in Libya informed the administration in Washington, D.C., within 24 hours of the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that the attack had been a terrorist strike whose perpetrators included militia associated with al Qaeda.”
