Their repeated scripted denials don't stand up to the facts!
Deja Vu. Carter and Obama
"The natural relationship between Islam and the United States is one of friendship ... We have the deepest respect and reverence for Islam.” --Jimmy Carter February, 1980.
“I’ve come here ... to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”-- Barack Obama, June 2009
In the wake of the biggest attack on America since the original September 11th the Obama Administration sent out only one representative to put across their message on the Sunday news shows. UN Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on all four shows with nearly identical talking points.
First the claim that the murder of our Ambassador and embassy personnel was not pre-medidated. Rice told Jake Tapper on ABC News "what this began as, it was a spontaneous -- not a premeditated -- response to what had transpired in Cairo." Rice claimed that this protest was a response to the anti-Muslim video on You Tube and that the protest was "hijacked" by extremists with "heavier weapons."
All of this flies in the face of other reports from Libya, including statement by the Libyan President described the preparation that the attacks involved and concludes: "this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned, determined…predetermined."
Further contradicting the Obama Administration line, other intelligence reports indicate that there was no protest prior to the attacks. Reports also persist that the Obama Administration had advance warning from the Libyans prior to the murder of our Ambassador. Yet White House aide Valerie Jarrett has more security on her vacation in Martha's Vineyard than our Ambassador did in Libya on September 11th even after the blow up began in Cairo earlier that day.
But even if the so-called "news" media wanted to ask as many questions about Obama's failed policy as they did about Mitt Romney's statement after the attacks they would be met with a wall of silence. Apparently the Administration has called in the Department of Justice to investigate and therefore, no further comment. This from the State Department press spokesperson on Friday:
We are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this happened -- not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it -- until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation that its got,"And since Attorney General Holder has quite a history covering up Obama's messes one doubts whether any useful answers will be forthcoming before the November election.

International Policies Faulted. June 13, 2012
“One of the proudest things of my three years in office is helping to restore a sense of respect for America around the world."
-- Barack Obama, February 2012
Jake Tapper on ABC addressed this claim in his interview with Ambassador Rice:
TAPPER: President Obama pledged to repair America's relationships with the Muslim world. Why does the U.S. seem so impotent? And why is the U.S. even less popular today in some of these Muslim and Arab countries than it was four years ago?Well, there you go. All that violence and bloodshed from a little video that few people have seen; nothing to do with Obama's policy. Who you going to believe? The Obama Administration or your lying eyes and the Pew Poll Global Opinion survey?
RICE: Jake, we're not impotent. We're not even less popular, to challenge that assessment. I don't know on what basis you make that judgment. But let me -- let me point...
TAPPER: It just seems that the U.S. government is powerless as this -- as this maelstrom erupts.
RICE: It's actually the opposite. First of all, let's be clear about what transpired here. What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi, in many other parts of the region...
TAPPER: Tunisia, Khartoum...
RICE: ... was a result -- a direct result of a heinous and offensive video
Hopefully we will see an ad coming up soon contrasting Obama's words with the consequences of his failure as the Middle East continues to burn with hatred for U.S. policies.
