CBS Held Damaging Segment of Tape On Obama Benghazi InterviewTopics:
Remember in the presidential debate when Mitt Romney said that many days passed before we knew whether this was a spontaneous demonstration or actually whether it was a terrorist attack. And there was no demonstration involved. It was a terrorist attack, and it took a long time for that to be told to the American people? Remember when Obama then emphasize that in the Rose Garden he had declared the attack an Benghazi attack an 'act of terror'?
Well, not much to see here folks, just a little more evidence that Obama lied, brave Americans died, he's been covering it up, and CBS covered for him ... until just two days before the election:.
[...] From a president who has been saying he was calling Benghazi a terrorist attack from the very first moment in the Rose Garden. Also, remember what he said in the debate and notice the new part -- in bold.Take the time to read the whole Fox report on what President Obama really said in that '60 Minutes' interview about Benghazi.
KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?
OBAMA: Well it's too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.
KROFT: It's been described as a mob action, but there are reports that they were very heavily armed with grenades, that doesn't sound like your normal demonstration.
OBAMA: As I said, we're still investigating exactly what happened, I don't want to jump the gun on this. But your right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt. And my suspicion is there are folks involved in this. Who were looking to target Americans from the start. So we're gonna make sure that our first priority is to get our folks out safe, make sure our embassies are secured around the world and then we are going to go after those folks who carried this out. ... yadi yadi yada ...
As Fox goes on to point out ... This raises many more questions, a few or which are:
Why did CBS release a clip that appeared to back up Obama's claim in the second debate on Oct. 19, a few days before the foreign policy debate, and not release the rest of that interview at the beginning?
Why on the Sunday before the election, almost six weeks after the attack, at 6 p.m. does an obscure online timeline posted on CBS.com contain the additional "60 Minutes" interview material from Sept. 12?
Why wasn't it news after the president said what he said in the second debate, knowing what they had in that "60 Minutes" tape -- why didn't they use it then? And why is it taking Fox News to spur other media organizations to take the Benghazi story seriously?
Whatever your politics, there are a lot of loose ends here, a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of strange political maneuvers that don't add up.
