No Matter How Hard Hillary and Obola Wanted Benghazi to Be a Demonstration Against a Movie, The Terrorism Eventually Came Out

No Matter How Hard Hillary and Obola Wanted Benghazi to Be a Demonstration Against a Movie, The Terrorism Eventually Came Out:

The PJ Tatler » Panetta: I Immediately Knew that Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack

Host Andrea Mitchell asked Panetta, “You wrote in the book that you disagreed with David Petraeus and told the situation room he thought it was a spontaneous demonstration outside the consulate that night. Why did you disagree. What didn’t ring true about that?”

Panetta fired: “I didn’t have any specific information, but the fact was that when you bring grenade launchers to a demonstration, something else is going on. From the very beginning I sensed that this was an attack, a terrorist attack on the compound. I remember saying look, based on the ones I see and the nature of the attack, I think this was a terrorist attack. He said look, the information we are getting from intelligence sources is that it really was a demonstration. I said you know, David, i don’t see it that way.”

Both President Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took the protest point of view. For weeks after the attack both Clinton and Obama blamed the attack on an obscure YouTube video. The producer of that video was later arrested and spent a year in prison on parole violations.
It’s CYA, all the way down.  As long as it permitted them to spin Benghazi the way they wanted it spun, it was perfectly acceptable to take “intelligence sources” as verified facts, rather than use even the tiniest bit of common sense.
