For the better part of two weeks, America has been treated to a continuous stream of lies and cover uups over what transpired in Libya and Egypt and why it happened. The spin doctors were working over time to convince America and the world that the attacks on our embassies and the murders of our Libyan Ambassador and three of his staff was nothing but a spontaneous reaction to some You Tube video insulting of Islam.. In spite of this administrations best efforts, along with a compliant media to protect the reputation of The Leader From Behind, the story came unraveled in short order. And, although the administration finally admitted that the attacks were well planned and organized attacks, The Leader From Behind went before the UN General Assembly and continued to apologize for the disgusting video and making sure the world knew that the American government did not condone such disrespect for the religion of Islam.
We’ll get back to the Libya mess in a moment. As today’s title says, our government lying to its citizens is a proud tradition. I¡m no scholar of our history; but I would venture to say that FDR lied about the causes of the Great Depression, why we were entering the war in Europe, and about what our government knew in advance of Japanese plans to attack and why our pacific fleet was caught flat-footed in Pearl Harbor. John Kennedy didn’t tell the truth about the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Lyndon Johnson led incessantly about the war in Vietnam. Richard Nixon, well he had to resign for lying. I know from personnel experience here in Venezuela that the peanut farmer from Georgia is a liar. Bill Clinton, G.W. Bush, and the Leader From Behind? All accomplished liars.
Sometimes our government lies to us for good reason. Sometimes, for reason of national security, some things must remain secret. However, we should always be skeptical when our government keeps the truth from us. The need for secrets is often abused.
Okay. Back to the current mess in Libya. The administration’s cover story about the video didn’t hold up. But, don’t doubt for a moment that spin doctors are not still hard at work to come up with a plan to protect The Leader From Behind. This morning Yahoo News is reporting
When gunmen struck the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 of this year, the response from American officials was almost simultaneous: They immediately set about collecting information about the attackers, some of whom were quickly identified as foreigners, and tracing links from them to known extremist groups, a knowledgeable source has told Yahoo News.
Interesting, isn’t it? So, don’t be surprised if in plenty of time to influence the elections, that there will be some drone attacks in Libya and people will be killed and The Leader From Behind will announce that we have killed the leaders of those that attacked our embassy and killed our people. He will explain that the video cover story was necessary so as not to let the bad guys know what we knew. America will then know that The Leader From Behind was on top of things all along. We can not let the man off the hook. There are many questions that deserve answers. Why were our embassy personnel without protection? How did the terrorist know about the “secret” safe-house? And, there are many more questions.
Also, yesterday and today the news is abuzz over the arrest of the anti-Muslim video maker, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. It has been reported that Nakoula is a Coptic Christian. Most conservatives see this arrest as nothing more than harassment of Nakoula for his exercise of his right to free speech. But, there may be more to this story. It may be that the man’s name is not Nakoula and he may vot be a Coptic Christian at all. It may be that he is a Muslim radical and made this film for the purpose of using it to rally the ignorant people into demonstrating as a cover for the terrorist attacks. I think you would find this story by Walid Shoebat very interesting. We have no way of knowing if Mr. Shoebat¡s accusations about Nakoula are true or not. But, I would recommend that The Leader From Behind reconsider his position on water boarding. We need to know what Mr. Nakoula, or whatever his name is, knows. Wouldn’t it be nice to know the truth for once?
Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
