For a day. But within hours, the administration account deflated...
I just saw Joe Scarborough interviewing the ObaMessiah...he asked him about Benghazi. The Chosen One (not MY choice!) was squirming like a used car salesman when you ask to see the Carfax Report! MAN, did his body language reveal that the Obamanators have been hiding the truth and dissembling to the max. The simple truth is that O wanted us to imagine that HE had vanquished terrorism with the drones and his apologizing/deference to the Muslims, and the SEALS taking out Osama Bin Hidin'. The REALITY is that terrorism/Al Qaeda is SURGING, BUT that does not fit the regime's obfuscating pipe dream narrative.
The first statements from the Obama administration about what happened in Benghazi seemed plausible. There were, after all, protests throughout the Muslim world on the anniversary of 9/11 -- some incited by Islamists using an obscure video to arouse anti-American fervor in the mobs, and some, no doubt, just pelting U.S. embassies on general principles. When the administration explained that one of those protests had spun out of control and led to the murder of our ambassador and three other Americans in Libya, there seemed no reason to doubt it.
