Facts. They can be pesky things.
Sept.12: Obama Labels Attack ‘Act of Terror,’ Not ‘Terrorism’
Sept. 12: Clinton issues a statement confirming that four U.S. officials, not one, had been killed. She called it a “violent attack.”
Sept. 12: Clinton delivers a speech at the State Department to condemn the attack in Benghazi and to praise the victims as “heroes.” She again makes reference to the anti-Muslim video in similar language.
Sept. 12: Obama delivers a morning speech in the Rose Garden to address the deaths of U.S. diplomats in Libya. He said, “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.” He also makes reference to the anti-Muslim video when he says: “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.” He uses the term “act of terror” later that night when talking about the attack at a campaign event in Las Vegas.
Sept. 12: After his Rose Garden speech, Obama tapes an interview for “60 Minutes.” Obama says he didn’t use the word “terrorism” in his Rose Garden speech because “it’s too early to know exactly how this came about.” Steve Kroft, the show’s host, wonders how the attack could be described as a “mob action” since the attackers were “very heavily armed.” Obama says “we’re still investigating,” but he suspects “folks involved in this . . . were looking to target Americans from the start.”

Sept. 26: ‘Let’s Be Clear, It Was a Terrorist Attack’
Carney is asked at a press briefing aboard Air Force One en route to Ohio why the president has not called the Benghazi incident a “terrorist attack.” He said, “The president — our position is, as reflected by the NCTC director, that it was a terrorist attack. It is, I think by definition, a terrorist attack when there is a prolonged assault on an embassy with weapons. … So, let’s be clear, it was a terrorist attack and it was an inexcusable attack.”.....snip~
Yeah Fact Check.Org, Politifact, CNN, BBC, UK Daily Mail, and even that Yahoo Timeline does have the real facts down. They all the say the same thing as Fact-Check Right here.
I'm just going to take this as you not having any evidence to actually back up your assertions, and as part of a wider dearth of knowledge you have about the Benghazi Incident.
You concede the point then? Good.
Note the Factcheckers show Obama denied such until the Sept 26th. That it was even a Pre planned attack. Team Obama on that Date was saying it wasn't. But knew all along it was.
Do you think he OutRight lied on the 12th after knowing 2hrs in that it was a planned attack? Do you think that Team Obama can get around What Rice, and they stated about this Video talked about In the Fact Checkers Timelines.
See while Obama can detract with the US media.....just where do you think that puts his azz with News Sources Outside the US, that are running Factcheckers too?
So here is his dilemma.....either he knew after the first two hrs. Which then he would be lying that he didn't know. When he did. Or.....he was never told and he was completely absent on the Anniversary of 911. All due to going out West Coast to throw down and have that Party-time. Have some Drinks, Laugh a Lil, and Raise Money from all of the Hollywood Elite.
Things that Make go you Hmmmm.
