Remember the massive lie perpetrated by the Obama administration about the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi that was supposedly launched in response to an anti-Islam YouTube video?
Though many already assumed that intelligence-insulting lie wasn’t true, a recently obtained memo, as reported on Fox News, clearly indicated that multiple U.S. agencies including the CIA, State Department and the National Security Council fully expected an attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi at least 10 days before it actually happened.
Catherine Herridge reported on “America’s Newsroom” to Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that a CIA memo from 2012 read, “The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for the (U.S.) killing of Aboyahiye in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center buildings.”
Herridge pointed out that the memo included nothing about a demonstration or a video, uncovering a lie that could shake up the years-long investigation into the attack that claimed the lives of four American citizens, including an ambassador.
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained the memo through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
The Obama administration simply used their flimsy, ridiculous cover story to protect Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012 — the last thing they needed was a major foreign policy failure on their hands (H/T BizPac Review).
Lying to the families of the victims of the attack as well as the rest of America was just another day at the office for them.
