In Tuesday night’s debate, Barack Obama, and his teammate CNN’s Candy Crowley lied about the timeline on the Benghazi terror attacks. They called out Romney who rightly pointed out that the Obama regime took over a week to admit Benghazi was an act of terror. Obama and Crowley attacked Romney, claiming Obama said it was terror straightaway.
Well, CNN’s own reporting proves Obama and Crowley lied. Now, we have a report that Obama, himself admitted last night that he lied. Obama admitted this to the audience member that asked the question on Benghazi.
From Tom Blumer at NewsBusters:
It looks like Candy Crowley, her establishment press excuse-makers (for her and President Obama), and supporters of the President are going to have to resort to finding penumbras emanating from Obama’s September 12 Rose Garden appearance — y’know, the one during which the press and Democrats insist that the President really, really did call the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya a terrorist attack.
The reason they’re going to have to do this is because the person who asked Obama the Libya question is saying that the President himself told him that he delayed calling Benghazi a terrorist attack. Erik Wemple at the Washington Post apparently doesn’t grasp the damning significance of what the questioner, Kerry Ladka, relayed to him.
Wemple does acknowledge that the President never answered Ladka’s actual question, which was “Who was it that denied enhanced security (at Benghazi) and why?”
But catch what Ladka claims took place after the debate (links are in the original; bolds are mine):
Kerry Ladka stood before President Obama at last night’s town hall-style debate and asked the question that would touch off an onstage verbal brawl and, later, an intense national discussion.
… Was Ladka satisfied with how the president responded? Simply no. “I really didn’t think he totally answered the question satisfactorily as far as I was concerned,” Ladka tells the Erik Wemple Blog.
… President Obama, though, wasn’t done with Kerry Ladka. “After the debate, the president came over to me and spent about two minutes with me privately,” says the 61-year-old Ladka, who works at Global Telecom Supply in Mineola, N.Y. According to Ladka, Obama gave him ”more information about why he delayed calling the attack a terrorist attack.” For background, Obama did apparently lump Benghazi into a reference to “acts of terror” in a Sept. 12 Rose Garden address. However, he spent about two weeks holding off on using the full “terrorist” designation. The rationale for the delay, Obama explained to Ladka, was to make sure that the “intelligence he was acting on was real intelligence and not disinformation,” recalls Ladka.
So, lefties in the media and elsewhere: What about Obama’s admission to his questioner that, in the questioner’s words, “he delayed calling the attack a terrorist attack” don’t you understand?

Who cares? Cant someone figure out the facts before they go running around making claims…on 9-11, no one was trying to accuse Bush right away, and if they were, they were American trash…give it a rest……good people on both sides should protest and not vote to show all you hateful losers we dont need to be a part of this crap…
Who cares? How about the American people? Obama not only lied to the American people last night, he and Candy Crowley ATTACKED Mitt Romney while lying.
The entire Benghazi slaughter is Obama’s fault. You had a gay ambassador in a hostile Muslim country, with absolutely ZERO protection. The embassy and consulate that had been regularly attacked for months.
Obama was too busy hanging with George Clooney and Jay-Z [and playing golf] to even go to any national security briefings. Had he paid attention, he’d known, that thanks to his dragging Bin Laden’s body around on the fund raising trail, al Qaeda had something planned for 9/11.
The ambassador had been begging for protection and better security, he was turned down.
The big lie last night was the fact Obama claimed to have told the people it was a terrorist attack the next day. That’s complete bullshit, as Obama and his lackey spent 14 days trying to make people think this was just a “spontaneous protest” over that stupid You Tube video, even though they knew there was NO protest whatsoever, just a well planned attack by terrorists with heavy weapons.
In a different time someone like Obama would be horsewhipped. We’ll have to settle for watching him pack in January after Romney cleans his clock in November.
Oh, as for Bush, left wing idiots and Ron Paul/Alex Jones sycophants almost immediately cooked up numerous conspiracy theories from accusing Bush and Cheney of having the buildings wired for demolition, to blaming it all on the Jews.
Face it, Obama is a lying crapweasel, and all his debate partner Candy Crowley managed was to make it painfully obvious that you can’t trust the American media either.
Wait one minute, then all he had to say was “we believe this attack was terrorism in nature. We could be wrong so we are working to validate our assumption.” But he can’t because he thinks if he pretends that terrorism has been beaten then the terrorists will believe it too.
Obama was too busy blaming it all on a non-existent protest over a stupid You Tube video, even as heads of state from Egypt and Libya were telling the world the video had absolutely NOTHING to do with the attacks!
Okay… So are you pissed that he didn’t officially use the word terrorist till it was actually confirmed? Or would you rather him accuse someone with the risk of causing bigger problems? I just still don’t get what it is exactly your pissed about… Act of terror.. Yes. Doesn’t quite mean terrorist.
We’re pissed because he and CNN’s Candy Crowley teamed up and attacked Mitt Romney after Romney rightfully pointed it it took the Obama regime two friggin’ weeks to stop blaming the slaughter of our people on a goddamn You Tube video and a protest that never happened.
We’re pissed because Obama claimed and Crowley went along with him, becoming his debate partner, not moderator, that he had told the people it was a terror attack the day after the attacks. That’s a complete lie.
We’re pissed that Obama knew beforehand an attack by al Qaeda was eminent, and ignored it all.
We’re pissed that Obama would rather hang with Hollywood bootlickers and play golf than do his job.
Obama is a lying crapweasel and a bigger threat to America’s future than any Muslim savage.
THAT’S why we are pissed!
