The level of lying the president has engaged in personally to coverup what happened in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens has been nothing short of vulgar. But now it goes to another level as we learn that there never was a protest outside the consulate in Benghazi.
The State Department said Tuesday that it never concluded the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam, raising further questions about why the Obama administration used that explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the US ambassador and three other Americans.
"That was not our conclusion," an official said. They said it was instead a co-ordinated assault involving several groups of men armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades over an expanse of more than a mile. "
There was no actionable intelligence of any planned or imminent attack," a top state department official said.
