The terrorist attack in Libya

The truth came out today that the Obama administration knew within 24 hours that the attack on our consulate in Libya was an Al Qaeda terrorist attack. Yet for days Obama, Clinton and others in the Obama administration repeatedly lied not only to the American people but to the whole world, bitterly blaming the attack on someone who was exercising his right to free speech.

It is not unusual for administrations to lie in order to protect, for example, strategic assets, national security or the lives of intelligence assets. In this case, however, it would appear that the lies were entirely politically motivated. After all, it just wouldn't be politically expedient for the U.S. to suffer a terrorist attack on American soil only weeks before the election, would it.

UPDATE: Charles Krauthammer just made the point that the attack in Libya came only about a week after the Democratic Convention in which numerous Democrats repeatedly "spiked the ball" about their defeat of bin Laden and Al Qaeda. The the fact that Al Qaeda responded only a week later by attacking an American consulate and killing our ambassador was so embarrassing that the Obama administration desperately tried to cover it up.
