What is considered a smoking gun and proof that the White House and Obama knew the truth about what happened in Benghazi right after the attack has recently emerged. If this internal E-mail supports these allegations and leads to more links or stronger evidence it could make what happened in the second Presidential debate very important. As a reminder during the debate Obama deliberately lied to the American people about what he said in the Rose Garden and Candy Crowley inappropriately backed him up. A gloating Obama then chimed in, “Can you say that a little louder, Candy!” Obama later scolded Romney about how “offensive” it was for him to question the administration’s selfless intention.
I say the president deliberately lied because it looked like Romney was "set up" and Obama never recanted or clarified his statements. Even the
hyper-partisan press could not sanction this lie for long. After the
event, Ms. Crowley quickly backtracked, admitting that Romney was
“right in the main.” This is like an umpire deliberately getting in a
runner’s way and calling him out during a decisive World Series moment,
then admitting the call was blown at a post-game press conference. This could be considered a watershed moment and may have been the turning point in the election. At the time Mitt Romney was on a roll and Obama on his heels, this took away all the momentum Romney had and left him flat.
This may bring back into focus the issue of "what and when" the White House knew concerning the events that took place in Benghazi. Below is an article I wrote on October 23,2012 just before the election as Hurricane Sandy hit and this subject was being pretty much ignored. I pulled this article from the blog archives. Things swung hard Obama's way in the final days, I was wrong about Romney getting a majority of the vote.
