Four Americans died in the attack: Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, former US Navy SEALs who were employed as security personnel.
The Obama administration's response to this tragedy formed the basis of what is now known as the Benghazi Scandal. Here's a brief summary of the points that make this a scandal:
- The Obama administration's repeated insistence that this was not a terrorist attack but rather a protest against a YouTube video. Uh, so the fact that occurred on September 11th is a mere coincidence? These were just a group of regular guys, kicking back, playing XBox and watching YouTube videos when suddenly they saw one they didn't like. And so, all 125 of them piled into their military vehicles with the heavy weapons apparently all Libyans possess and roared off to the consulate to express their displeasure? Seriously, could you make up a lamer story? The only thing I can think of is "a herd of unicorns attacked the embassy!" Good thing I don't work for Obama- they would have run with that one.
- It took President Obama a full two weeks to even call it an act of terror, a fact Candidate Romney called him on during the debate. Obama tried to claim he called it such the same day, but fact checkers swiftly unraveled the President's lie.
- The Obama Administration made a concerted effort to cover up what happened in Benghazi. At first this was just exposed by conservative news sites like Alex Jones' InfoWars and Newsmax but now even HuffPo and CNN are blowing the whistle. And yet, Obama insists this is a "phony scandal." Which brings us to the purpose of this post.
One of Obama's millions of brownshirted minions produced this graphic:
Wow, what hypocrites those Republicans are! Sixty dead and they never mention that as a scandal!
Turns out there's a good reason for that. See, these liberals trot out these "facts" and then really hope everyone is too lazy to actually research it. Unfortunately for them, conservatives aren't as lazy as the pot-smoking OWS Occutards of which the Democrats are belatedly so ashamed. Let's go through the whole list.
January 22, 2002 US Consulate in Kolkata: First of all, it's a flat out lie that the US Consulate was attacked. What was actually attacked was an "American Cultural Center" consisting of a library, an office, and a cultural wing. And the five dead? Four local cops and one security guard. Not a single American and certainly none of the embassy staff. People get mugged and even murdered near the UN headquarters in New York all the time. Should that be a scandal for the Irish government? The Brazilian? Every country that's a member of the UN?
June 14, 2002 US Consulate in Karachi: A truck bomb was set off outside the US Consulate. Again, no consulate staff were harmed, only locals. And here's a neat bit of liberal logic: The suicide bomber driving the truck is one of the 12 dead!
Feb 28, 2003 US Embassy in Islamabad: Yet another flat-out lie. It was the embassy in Karachi that had two Pakistani police officers shot by gunmen in the street outside. Once again, no staff at the consulate were harmed and this appears to be unrelated local street crime.
June 30, 2004 US Embassy in Tashkent: Same old story- happened outside the embassy, and the two dead were local security guards. No embassy staff harmed.
Dec 6, 2004 US Compound in Saudi Arabia: Yet another example of liberals counting the attackers among the dead and blaming Bush for it. Yet another example of a consulate that was not breached and of no Americans being killed.
September 12, 2006 US Embassy in Syria: "Three gunmen and a Syrian security guard were killed in a foiled attack on the U.S. embassy." Once again, embassy never breached, no Americans harmed, and the attackers are counted by the liberals as part of the "four dead!"
March 18, 2008 US Embassy in Yemen: A group of local doofuses got ahold of a mortar launcher, completely missed the US Embassy, and bombed a nearby girl's school. Embassy staff had no idea they were under attack. They may have looked out the window and said "now that's a war on women!"
July 9, 2008 US Consulate in Istanbul: I'm starting to get tired of typing "consulate not breached/no Americans harmed/attackers counted by liberals among the honored dead." You're probably getting tired of reading it. Maybe I should start thinking of an acronym or a pictogram to convey this all-too-common information.
Sept 17, 2008 US Embassy in Yemen: Thankfully, we're at the end of the list. I've decided to use cut 'n' paste to convey "consulate not breached/no Americans harmed/attackers counted by liberals among the honored dead."
So, sixty dead. Why no "Republican outrage?" Because this is nine examples of US security working. Of no Americans being harmed. Of a President quite rightfully labelling them as acts of terrorism. And of no governmental coverups, just a relentless search for those responsible. The exact opposite of what happened in Benghazi.
This graphic in fact shows, for all to see, how George W. Bush was a far better president than the current liar-in-chief.
