YOO-HOO, ANTIQUE MEDIA: You figured out yet that everything the White House told you about Benghazi was a lie?

Stephen Hayes does the rundown, which can be summarized as follows:

Ambassador Susan Rice lied on five Sunday talk shows last week, saying that the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens was not "premeditated or preplanned".

Ambassador Susan Rice also lied about Stevens' security, stating that " two of the four Americans who were killed were there providing security."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney lied that the attacks had nothing to do with the anniversary of 9/11.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied as well, indicating that an anti-Islamic film was the cause of the non-existent protests in Benghazi

Hillary's State Department lied; first downplaying the possibility of 9/11 terror attacks and then scrubbing its website to remove its horrific mistake

Clinton also lied to Senate Republicans, claiming they did not have details of the terror attacks when they were instead revealing those details to The New York Times

President Barack Obama also lied, echoing the same falsehoods for days on end

The facts: There was no protest in Benghazi. There was only a planned, premeditated terror attack on the U.S. consulate. The attack was initiated on the anniversary of 9/11. And two heroic ex-Navy SEALs -- who were not part of Ambassador Stevens' security team -- jumped into the fray and died protecting him.

This is a scandal. And even Sixties media is going to have to cover it.

Hat tip: BadBlue News.

A lie usually depends on people never finding out that you lied. Or, it depends on getting out of town before people figure it out and want their money back.

Team Obama has gone beyond lying, and the MSM has gone beyond being merely misled. Team Obama's lies have no chance of surviving scrutiny. They will always be found out. So, why lie if the truth will follow in a few days?

It must be to give the MSM a nice story to report, whatever is found later. This will always confuse the issues involved. The lie itself is defended as "the best information available at that time". A dozen contradictory "facts" boil around in people's minds, instead of the one or two damning facts which would point blame at Obama.

This is a re-discovery by a political genius. Before this, the public assumed that no administration would lie outright and often. Obama has disproved that conventional wisdom. People will just not believe that everything they are told is initially a lie, just made up to be convenient. That is just unimaginable.

There is always a certain credibility in the big lie. The broad masses of a nation have simple, primitive minds. They more readily believe the big lie than the small lie. They often tell small lies in little matters, but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they do not believe that others would have the impudence to do so. You may bring the facts that prove the lie clearly to their minds. They will still doubt and waver, and they will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.

You can lie to your dog all you want and they will still love you. If you yell "squirrel" they'll still jump up and down rarin' to go.

Do you know that the two ex-SEALS died protecting the ambassador? The ambassador and IT guy appear to have been killed in the initial firebombing of the consulate. The rest of the staff scrambled to what they thought was a safe house. At 1am reinforcements apparently arrived at the safe house, and then at 1:45am the not-so-safe house was attacked. The Libyans sent out a rescue party and finally got everybody to the airport at about dawn.

I don't think we've been told, but it is possible that the two ex-SEALs arrived at 1am as part of the cavalry, and were killed in the 1:45am firefight. The ambassador had been left behind at the blazing consulate hours before the reinforcements arrived at 1am.

Nah, Rice and the rest of them were simply doing a "George Costanza":

"It's NOT a lie...if YOU believe it."

Andrew's post reveals what's been going on.

I can appreciate the article but it's difficult to understand anyone writing about the MSM as dupes or merely biased? I'm wondering if it's fear of being discredited to define them the deliberate propagandists they are? They will continue to set the narrative and manipulate emotion day in day out.

You appear to be confused about what is primitive and what is advanced thinking, otherwise a perceptive post.

Good article, but as others have said, the media do NOT have to cover this. Even the deepest cynicism about the corruption of the media is incomplete if there is still even a sliver of expectation that they are about anything at all other than propaganda. Did Pravda "have to cover" anything?

The only thing that matters any more with respect to the aptly-termed "antique media" is that every citizen who still insists on obtaining their information therefrom must be treated with pity, amusement and disgust. The media must be disgraced and disqualified from any shred of authority at every turn.

NOT a planned attack?!?!???


muztards can barely agree whose knife to cut your throat with, they certainly did not all decide at the exact same time to make the exact same signs and then drag a russian, TOWED 23 mm anti-aircraft weapon down the street to a peaceful protest!

Here's who made the anti Muslim movie: Read the article, watch all the videos (even when they are blacked out) and then go to the Wikipedia link; It was the Obama govt with John Brennan and the CIA:

We need to really evaluate Jim Stone's stance on this issue: The BIG LIE: There is NO Benghazi, Libya Embassy or Consulate to start with. The U.S. only acknowledges an Embassy/Consulate in Tripoli, Libya.

Website of official U.S. Embassies, Consulates, and Diplomatic Missions

The questions beg for answering: Why does the U.S. claim there is an embassy in the this town, and why were they in Benghazi, at what appears to be a mansion, that was burned down?

A much larger scheme & cover up than originally thought.
