Obama Promotes Delusional Libyan US Embassy Attack Cause Using Susan Rice and Jay Carney

The Obama administration is spewing out new levels of propaganda and outright delusion about the US Embassy attack in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Not only did President Obama give a wimpy response to the initial killing of Ambassador Stevens, he is now promoting what appears to be a complete lack of understanding of the reasons behind the attack though Press Secretary Jay Carney and UN Ambassador Susan Rice.

Just 3 days after the attack that killed Stevens and 3 other embassy employees, Jay Carney came out with this gem of a quote in a White House press briefing:

"This is a fairly volatile situation, and it is in response not to United States policy, obviously not to the administration, not to the American people. It is in response to a video, a film, that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting - that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. But this is not a case of protests directed at the United States, writ large, or at U.S. policy."

Earth to Jay, intelligent life is calling, can you come up with a better response?

Then on Sunday's Meet The Press, US Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice repeated this nonsensical line of reasoning when she told host David Gregory, referring to the Innocence of Muslims video,

"Obviously our view is that there is absolutely no excuse for violence and what has happened is condemnable. But this is a spontaneous reaction to a video and it’s not dissimilar but perhaps on a slightly larger scale than what we have seen in the past…"

Ambassador Rice then continued,

“What we think then transpired in Benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding, they came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are readily available in post-revolutionary Libya, and it escalated into a much more violent episode. That’s our best judgement now.”

Wow, really? Ambassador Rice promotes this incredibly bizarre line of thinking when it has been reported in multiple newspapers across Europe and Asia, but unfortunately almost completely ignored by the American main stream media, that this was a well planned and coordinated attack that may have involved up to 400 participants. The attack lasted for 5 hours total, eventually chased down Ambassador Stevens and or others to a so-called safe house, that someone let the militants know the location of, and the Obama administration wants us to believe that this was a spontaneous reaction?

This is a mind boggling explanation for such a outright hateful and destructive attack on American interests and President Obama must think we are stupid to believe such nonsense. Not only is this a huge lie, it completely ignores the incredible security breach where the Obama administration knew about the attack in Benghazi, Libya days ahead of time and did not even warn the embassy about it.

Where did a spontaneously gathered crowd get rocket propelled grenades, mortars, machine guns and enough ammo to mount a war like assault that lasted 5 hours? Not even in a war torn country where such weapons are available does an attack of that magnitude happen without being planned. Not even the deluded masses of voters responsible for putting Barack Obama in the White House think such a lie is credible.
