Videos, Timeline: Obama’s Responses to Libya Attack

Posted by FactReal on October 19, 2012

For weeks, the Obama administration repeatedly referred to the obscure YouTube video as the cause of the Islamic attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya on September 11, 2012. Now, they want to re-write history and say they called it a terrorist attack since day 2.

But the facts and the timeline contradict the Obama team:
– Months before attack: There were 13 attacks prior to consulate attack in Libya
– Months before attack: Obama admin. denied requests for more security in Libya

– 9/12/2012: Report: Obama skipped intel briefings week before embassy attacks
– 9/13/2012: Obama administration asks Google/YouTube to remove Mohammed video
– 9/13/2012: Hillary Clinton: Mohammed movie “disgusting and reprehensible”

– 9/15/2012: Obama: We reject denigration of any religion…including Islam (Obvious reference to the video)
– 9/15/2012: Man behind Mohammed video is detained by police (Later arrested)
– 9/16/2012: Libyan President: Attack was preplanned, not spontaneous

– 9/18/2012: Obama parties in New York with Jay-Z and Beyonce; attacks Romney
– 9/18/2012: Obama to Letterman: Libya consulate attack is not an act of war. It’s about a video.
– 9/20/2012: Obama runs apology TV ad in Pakistan blaming YouTube video
– 9/25/2012: Obama goes to the ‘The View’ instead of meeting foreign leaders in NY (Obama: I’m eye candy)

If the Obama team thought the deadly attack in Libya was terrorism, they have a strange way of showing it. His administration kept blaming the stupid YouTube video for weeks. They even asked Google to remove the YouTube video. The video maker was arrested. And Obama continued campaigning and going to frivolous TV shows as if nothing was happening.
