Robert Spencer in a column in PJ Media explains in part the White House and State Department failure to acknowledged what was really happening that night in Benghazi i.e., four years of Islam-sensitive foreign policy and the lifeless sodomized body of Chris Stevens:
Obama administration is approaching full meltdown over the steady stream of
revelations concerning its inaction and lies over the massacre of Ambassador
Chris Stevens and other U.S. personnel in Libya....
about the Libyan revolution in March 2011, Obama warmly praised the dawning in
Libya of “the rights of peaceful assembly, free speech, and the ability of the
Libyan people to determine their own destiny.” After providing military aid to
the anti-Gaddafi rebels despite evidence of their al-Qaeda links, the
administration–whether the call really came from the White House or the State
Department or both–had every reason to ignore the request from Benghazi for
more security, and to pretend that the whole thing was just a spontaneous
uprising over a video, not the carefully planned September 11 jihad attack that
it proved to be.
acknowledged what was really happening would have been to admit that the
Allahu-akbaring mob besieging the Benghazi consulate was nothing remotely close
to a responsible citizenry enjoying their rights of peaceful assembly, free
speech, and self-determination. It would have been to admit that the jihad
against the United States would not be turned away from its goal by
hearts-and-minds gestures, even if those gestures included the removal of a
brutal dictator. The people of Benghazi were no more inclined to welcome the
Americans as liberators–and Ambassador Stevens had attempted to play exactly
that role, sneaking into Libya during the most difficult days of the uprising
and doing everything he could to aid the rebels–than were the people of Iraq
when Saddam Hussein was toppled....
