There Never Was a Protest In Benghazi

Breaking news from ABC: a senior State Department official, apparently trying to get bad news out in anticipation of a Congressional hearing tomorrow, has started to come clean on the Benghazi consulate attack. He admitted to ABC that there never was a protest at the consulate, as the Obama administration has always claimed. Rather, the first warning those inside the consulate had that something was wrong was an explosion. They looked out and saw a large number of armed men approaching. It was a terrorist attack, pure and simple, well-planned and well-executed. It had nothing to do with a YouTube video. One thing authorities apparently still don’t know is what happened to Ambassador Stevens. That is what they are saying, anyway. Here is the report:

Note that the administration’s lies are being exposed only because the Republicans control the House and Darrell Issa is willing to take endless heat from Democrats in order to carry out an investigation. I am not aware of a single Democrat in Washington who has pressed the administration to tell the truth about what happened in Benghazi.

UPDATE: This American Crossroads video predates the latest revelations, but still provides an effective summary of the Obama administration’s deceit with respect to what happened in Libya:
