I took President Barack Obama's advice and read the transcript of his speech from the Rose Garden on Sept. 12.
Google "transcript president Obama's remarks following deadly attacks."
First of all, let's clear the air: He, Mr. Obama, did say/use the phrase "acts of terror."
Let's start with the big picture, did or did not the administration try and paint a picture that this was an act of terror caused by a movie or an act of terrorism planned and perpetrated by Islamic terrorists?
Take the time to look up the words terror and terrorism. When you do, you will see they are not the same. Terror is "to frighten." Terrorism is a criminal or illegal act done by extremists to raise fear. At no time on Sept. 12 did Mr. Obama call what happened in Benghazi an "act of terrorism." In fact, his administration spent the next week to 10 days trying to convince the world it was about a unseen, slanderous movie.
Read paragraph 5 and the first sentence of paragraph 6 of the transcript. You will definitely see the start of the movie argument and the religious intolerance argument as the reason the administration gave during the days after the Benghazi attack.
In my opinion, the final investigation will show that they knew almost from the beginning that the movie had nothing to do with any of it, and tried to do damage control to cover their incompetence at best and their ideology at worst.
