White House: “Self Evident” Libya Attack A Terrorist Act

 

White House spokesman Jay Carney changed the administration’s story after a week of denying any terrorist links to the attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. On Thursday Carney said “It is, I think, self evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack,” Carney said. “Our embassy was attacked violently and the result was four deaths of American officials. That is self evident.” Which is a rather roundabout way of saying it was terrorism but not necessarily linked to any organized terrorist group. Just to leave a little wiggle room in there.

Mitt Romney attempted to make it appear the Obama administration was somehow culpable in the recent attacks on the U.S. embassies in Libya and Egypt, primarily by re-arranging the timeline of events and making embassy attempts to defuse the situation look like “an apology for America’s values”. In fact the embassy statement reaffirms American belief in the right to free speech, while criticizing those who might use that right to purposefully inflame religious sensitivities.
