In This Reporter’s Opinion, Obama’s Terror Victory Is A ‘Major Lie’

Investor’s Business Daily

On the ground, the facts are inconvenient for the Obama victory narrative. That was the message delivered Monday, with all the subtlety of a live grenade, by CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan. Speaking to Chicago’s Better Government Association, she skewered the administration story as a “major lie.”

Meanwhile, the administration is finally admitting that the Benghazi attack was a premeditated act of terror–not, as it lied earlier, a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video. Team Obama says we were unprepared on 9/11 due to a failure in intelligence. Well, duh. I believe it. I wonder why the Democrats didn’t give the Bush administration the same consideration they are requesting now when the WMDs that everyone knew were in Iraq disappeared?

That’s all in the past, but Libya isn’t. Yes, that was an intelligence failure, too, but a politically, ideologically driven intelligence failure. Admitting that terrorism is still a threat–and actually preparing for it–would have contradicted the president’s fantasy narrative that he had all but destroyed al Qaeda when we offed Bin Laden. As a result, four Americans are now dead, and the president’s Mideast policy is a shambles.

Can we label this scandal “Obama Lied, People Died”? Makes a good bumper sticker.
