White House Lied, Congress to Investigate

It is now clear from multiple sources, that the White House knew the attack on 9/11 (2012) in Libya was a coordinated terror attack by Al Qaeda affiliates. Yet the WH spun the attack for more than a week for political purposes (to fit Obama’s narrative that terror is receding).  The WH at the very highest level blamed the video, and said it was  spontaneous, etc., everything but terrorism. They repeated set pieces over and over, and avoided ever admitting it was terrorism until confronted with facts from several quarters.

There were several warnings about the security of the Libyan consulate well before the attack, and the deceased Ambassador’s own diary expressed fears for his own safety.  The Consulate asked for more security but was turned down, and the marines at the site had no ammunition in their guns by order of the government.

This is of deep concern; that politics and a factional party line would take precedence over embassy security and the welfare of American staff.  Four Americans were brutally murdered in this attack.  The President’s response, in my view, has been contemptible.

My favourite cartoonist, Michael P. Ramirez (double Pulitzer Prize winner) commented on this debacle, with this brilliant cartoon below (you can view his work at his site by clicking here). Click to enlarge.

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 40s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities. RIDER: This site is not connected to nzconservative, a Catholic site, or NZ Conservative Party, although from time-to-time I share some of the views espoused by both groups and other sites I follow, as published; I am an independent thinker and blogger.
