Murdered Ambassador Said He Was On An Al-Qaeda Hit List
I guess that means they weren't protesting some stupid video, as we were told.
Even Matt Olsen, the Obama Administration's director of the National Counterterrorism Center, admitted Wednesday at a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security Committee that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack. In other words, we have been lied to by the entire administration from the president on down that this was a 'spontaneous protest' over some poorly produced YouTube trailer.
Which leads to yet another question..if the Ambassador was on an al-Qaeda hit list, why was he sent to a location where the security consisted of one locked door and some Libyan Security guards who not only melted away when the attack came but fingered the safe house where the Americans were taken for the mob? Why was there no American security present?
As Senator McCain says later in the video, this was a colossal intelligence failure and yet another major foreign policy error on the part of the Obama Administration. It will take a congressional investigation to at least attempt to cut through the tissue of lies and distortions we've been presented with on this.
