Revelatory Expectations of an Inept President

The President of the United States lied about the murders in Libya. We know that now.

Within 24 hours of the violent attack on the US consulate, the Obama Administration knew that attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi were acts of terrorism and not a simple protest over a seldom seen preview of an unseen movie. The original lies - original as in earliest, not most creative - told by US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice were never believable to anyone with a calendar.

It was September 11th on the eleventh anniversary of al-Qaeda's attack on the United States. It came after weeks of incessant bragging by President Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden about the killing of Osama bin-Laden.

"Bin-Laden is dead and GM is alive! Put that on a bumper sticker!" brayed Biden. And, please, don't be so insulting to President Obama as to imply that Joe Biden is uncontrollable. One call from Obama and Biden sticks a sock in it. Joe's victory yap bears the Barack Obama Seal of Approval. Indirectly, so do the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi.

We can't say with any certainty that the ceaseless political promotion of bin-Laden's killing caused the deaths of American Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others. We can say that it is much more likely than a simple 'protest' to which people just happened to bring rocket-propelled grenades. We can also say that a man who promised to promote better understanding with the Middle East and Islamic countries obviously put his campaign ahead of his promises.

The only thing noteworthy about yet another outrageous whopper from the Obama Administration is that no one was surprised. There was anger at the lie, but no shock. We expected it.

With the pandering and claiming credit for what a group of brave American troops actually did, even the Blind Sheik could have connected the dots. Speaking of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, I also do not believe the floated fiction that the protests were about his release from US prison.

Be honest; we expected President Obama to lie and we expected the nearly complete silence of the traditional media. The fact that most Americans are either blissfully unaware or cynically expectant of lies from an inept administration is a sign that we are in trouble.

Call it a sign of the times.
