Refusing to answer even the simplest of questions regarding who knew what and when, the Obama White House is now clearly counting on the American people not paying attention to the looming Benghazi Massacre scandal in the days leading up to the presidential election.
WH: ‘We Decline to Comment’ on When Obama Learned of E-Mails, Met With NSC on Benghazi
(CNSNews.com) – The White House is declining to say when President Barack Obama first learned of three e-mails that the State Department sent to the White House on Sept. 11, 2012, directly notifying the Executive Office of the President that the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was under attack, that U.S. Amb. Chris Stevens was at the Benghazi mission at the time of the attack, and that the group Ansar al-Sharia had taken credit for the attack.
The White House also declined to say when the president first met with the National Security Council after the Benghazi attack.
“I have been asked by one of our spokespeople to relay ‘that we decline to comment,’” said White House National Security Staff aide Debbie Bird in a written response to CNSNews.com.
…The NSC is chaired by the president, and includes Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. A NSC meeting would allow the leader of the intelligence community to communicate directly with the leader of the State Department in the presence of the president and for all of them to weigh any conflicting information.
The three emails in question, which were obtained by CBS News, were sent by the State Department to various government officials, including two officials in the Executive Office of the President, on Sept. 11, 2012, while the attack on the Benghazi was taking place and immediately after it had taken place.

So the Obama White House not only had those emails detailing the group likely responsible for the Benghazi Massacre, but it also had an actual live video feed via a drone that was flying in the vicinity of the American consulate during the attack, it had statements from top Libyan officials declaring it a terrorist attack, it had video posted by those who actually instigated and carried out the attack – and yet the Obama White House LIED to the American people day after day after day blaming an unknown YouTube video for the tragedy in Benghazi.
A simple question to anyone still considering voting for Barack Obama in 2012:
If Barack Obama is willing to lie about Benghazi – what else will he lie to you about? What else has he already lied about? And is such a man truly worthy of your vote?
