World Net Daily: “As Mr. Hicks said, the YouTube video was a non-event for us in Libya. He said all the embassies reporting from the get-go was that it was a terrorist attack. He said that he had said this to Secretary Clinton when she called him at 2 a.m. his time,” Bolton said. “So there was no question here of conflicting intelligence, no question here of what the White House calls the fog of war. You don’t need intelligence reports when you can talk to your own employees in the State Department and other agencies who were right there on the ground. That’s why I think not just the rewriting of the talking points but the entire administration approach, including what Secretary of State Clinton said and including what the president said at the United Nations about the Muhammad video, were false and known to be false right from the outset.”
Bolton said it seems increasingly clear that the story of the YouTube video was a political concoction designed to minimize the damage of Benghazi during the final stretches of a presidential campaign. As bad as that sounds, he said the only other plausible explanation would be far worse.
“It was either a political cover-up or it was a demonstration of willful ideological blindness, the refusal to see facts that contradicted their theology that the war on terror was over,” Bolton said. “For the security and safety of our country, I hope that the explanation is that it was a political cover-up, because that you can expose and fix. But if it’s an ideological blindness and an unwillingness to see terrorism for what it is, we’ve got four more years of it in front of us.”
Opinion: Ambassador Bolton is being kind. When you define the Fort Hood massacre as ‘work place violence’, when you invite a Muslim cleric to pray (in Arabic) at a funeral service for 15 Navy Seals, when you display complete disregard for American life at Benghazi and combine that with the unwillingness to acknowledge the radical Islamic terror at the Boston bombing, a really sinister picture begins to emerge.
But Bolton, Huckabee, Rush, Sean and Savage can’t do it alone. Their audience only reaches conservatives while the mainstream Obama press molds and shapes the vast majority of public thinking. CNN’s front page this morning reads “They’re alive but how will they live? Lessons for Cleveland’s victims.”
We have written many posts about lies and deception being hallmarks of the last days. Matthew 24:4, Luke 21:8 and 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-12 tell us that these are the first signs to watch for, but the verse that keeps coming to mind today is Matthew 7:16.
The American people have one last opportunity to stop this radical ideology by letting our voices be heard. We may never get another chance.
