Tomorrow, October 11, marks the one-month anniversary of the tragic slaughter of four dedicated public servants at the US Embassy in Benghazi.
In the intervening days and weeks since Obama’s 9/11, the president and his dysfunctional administration have demonstrated untoward levels of incompetence, aversion to transparency and truth, and reaffirmation of the axiom that “power corrupts” and “absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Amazingly enough, while the Obama 9/11 cover up story falls apart at the seams, President Obama is focused on—Big Bird!
Indeed, the latest Obama ad, shown at the link below, is the ultimate in political nonsense:
The ad is summarized thusly at reference 1:
“The Sesame Street people have asked the Obama campaign to take down an ad featuring Big Bird.Meanwhile, as Obama and his reelection team obsess about Big Bird and funding for Sesame Street, a committee of the US House is scheduled to hold hearings on the 9/11/12 terrorist attack, as reported in part at reference 1:
"Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns," said the organization in a statement. "We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down."
Senior officials at the State Department on Tuesday night presented a greatly revised account of the events surrounding the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya, abandoning earlier assertions that the assault had grown out of a protests against an anti-Islam film.See reference 1 for a fuller account of the Obama cover up and failure in Benghazi.
The shift in narrative from the State Department comes amid revelations the Obama administration told U.S. diplomats during the months leading up to the attack to draw down security in Libya in an effort to show that life was returning to normal after the revolution that shook the North African nation last year.
Eric Nordstrom, who headed diplomatic security in Libya until June, is expected to testify Wednesday before a House committee examining the attacks that he made two requests to Washington for additional security personnel to be posted at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, but received no response.
Senior State Department officials, meanwhile, now say the Sept. 11 evening was a quiet one in Benghazi that became very suddenly violent about 9:40 p.m. when officials at the compound heard “gunfire and explosions.”
Once again, it is clear that Barack Obama’s ability to deny reality is world class, a fact which was reaffirmed when the muddled leader doubled down on his braggadocio about Al-Quaeda as reported in Reference 2:
Last night, President Obama defiantly declared that "al Quaeda is on its heels." The president made this claim at a fundraiser at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California.
The extraordinary thing about Obama's claim is that it was made less than a month after al Quaeda carried out a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed the American ambassador to that country, as well as three other Americans. That attack coincided with the same day--9/11--of al Qaeda's most successful attack again America, which happened 11 years earlier in New York City.”
Bottom Line: As the war on terror continues, American lives are threatened by a president who insists that the war is over. Once again, the president gives the America people The Bird!
