Niagara Gazette — President Obama named Former Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice as his National Security Advisor, this appointment does not need to be approved nor confirmed by Congress. This appointment stinks of “good old boy/girl politics.” The American people are being so duped by the president’s administration, that it is funny, but not in the ha-ha way. When has lying with purpose to the American People ever been the right thing to do? We deserve the truth no matter how much it hurts. I don’t feel lying is acceptable, unless it is during war or to prevent a war and is done in a effort to dupe the enemy. We the American People are not the enemy, this lie was to promote the President’s agenda and reelection efforts.
Just shortly after the Benghazi, Libya Terrorist attacks on our Consulate Mission and just before the 2012 November Presidential election; then Ambassador Susan Rice went on the Sunday TV shows telling everyone that would listen, that the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi raids were a result of a spur-of-the moment response to a crude anti-Muslim film which had all Muslims up-in-arms, so they raided; not the consulate nor the embassy, but a little known (almost secret) U.S. mission house in Benghazi. The outcome left four Americans dead including our ambassador to Libya. The truth and the only reasonable explanation for the cover-up is the November Presidential Elections just a month away. The idea; cover-up and to not make any mention that this was a terrorist attack, because of the president’s boast that: Osama bin Laden was dead, al-Qaida was decimated. But by recognizing the attack as a terrorist attack, could possibly; develop into a required retaliation, the truth about terrorist not being as decimated as stated and if President Obama had to order a retaliation his campaign could possibly suffer at the poles. The risk of doing nothing, lying and keeping it covered-up until after the elections would be the safest and easiest. That is exactly what happened and the rest is now history.
