Benghazzi-- No Red Flags??

Warning:  this is a political rant.

It is very disturbing, even shocking, to me that the liberal mainstream media refuses to demonstrate any concern nor attach any significance to the details of the horrible incident in Benghazzi.

On Facebook a little poster is being shared about all the terrorist attacks that occurred at diplomatic facilities under the Bush though that were the controversy....that an attack occurred.

For those of you who have been following this I apologize for stating the obvious.

There are three main areas of problems with the administration over the handling of Benghazzi.

First, the Obama administration said from the very beginning that the attack in Benghazzi was not a planned terrorist attack.  A few days after the attack Susan Rice, the American ambassador to the United Nations-- the president's representative in the U.N.--went on a number of Sunday morning talk shows and said that the best assessment at the present time was that it was not a planned terrorist attack.  The Wall Street Journal posted a nice summary of what Rice said on FIVE different Sunday talk shows regarding Benghazi:

On ABC's "This Week" Rice said "But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous — not a premeditated — response to what had transpired in Cairo." 

On CBS's "Face the Nation" Rice said "We do not– we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned."

In fact, we know now that everyone in the administration--State Department, Defense Department, CIA, and the White House knew from the very start that it was a planned terrorist attack.  I have a big problem with my government telling me things that it knows are not true.  

The fact that Rice added that the information was still coming in, that this was their initial assessment, does not change the fact that she said the information that they had at present  was that the attack was not preplanned.  This information is false and the administration knew it was false at the time of her statement.

Are our liberal journalists so smitten with the far left views of the O. Administration that they are not concerned when we are given information that is patently false??!!??  And it has been demonstrated to be false!!!  No red flags, mainstream media??  Does truth not matter to you?

I will continure this tomorrow.
