Gohmert: Benghazi talking points “an intentional misleading of the American public”

On Wednesday’s explosive season finale, For The Record investigates the events that led to the September 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Laurie Dhue and the team uncover why the United States government armed terrorists connected to Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood instead of acting on a proposed ceasefire.

In the last several weeks, news organizations and watchdog groups have released various documents and reports that further undermine the Obama Administration’s narrative in the days and weeks following the attack, how much was actually known about the nature of the violence, and when key members of the Administration knew said information. On Tuesday’s Glenn Beck Program, Dana Loesch filled in for Glenn and was joined by Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) to discuss new emails obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act.

As Dana explained, the newly released documents confirm what most Americans new all along – Benghazi was a cover up. Emails show then-White House deputy strategic communications adviser Ben Rhodes worked to craft the narrative that a You Tube video sparked a demonstration that then turned violent in order to protect the President in the lead up to the 2012 election. As it turns out, the You Tube video actually existed months before the alleged protest, and it played no role in the terror attack that ultimately killed four Americans.

See the documents obtained by Judicial Watch HERE.

“The tragic thing Dana is not only was it a distraction. It was an intentional misleading of the American public,” Rep. Gohmert said.

The Congressman was particularly disturbed by the fact that not only did then United Nations ambassador Susan Rice make the rounds on the Sunday shows to mislead the American people just weeks before early voting was set to begin, the Obama Administration then spent thousands of dollars on a pacifying television ad that ran across the Middle East featuring then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apologizing for the supposedly offensive video.

All of these steps, documents seemingly confirm, were part of a deliberate cover up by the U.S. government to protect President Obama and his reelection chances.

    With Loesch filling in for him, Glenn can just stay gone. Take another week, Glenn, a month, a year, whatever!

    A year and an half to produce some emails. I think the people in DC need to take some computer classes. Computers are suppose to be a means of being more efficent, not less. This should have taken days at most.

    None of this is a surprise, and as of yet it appers nothing will even come of it.

    Obama is the president, which makes HIM responsible…PERIOD.

    I am of the opinion this president is a pathological liar. He lied about Fast and Furious, Benghazi, endlessly lied about obamacare. When is enough enough? Nixon was facing impeachment and resigned over watergate where no one died. Obama has lied to our faces repeatedly and he’s still in office. Why?

      Pathological? I’d go so far as to offer congenital!

      Obama is the first black president (white mothers don’t count) and the media will destroy the republicans if they ever try to impeach him. The republicans control the house but most of them have to take a box of pampers with them for fear of being called racist. This is the price we pay for having more sheeple voting than people.

    Obama had to lie, he did nothing to save these Americans from being killed

      Personally, I believe that the ‘smoking gun’ is the fact that this
      administration never requested air space. According to Hicks who
      testified last year, the 1st step in the process of attempting any sort
      of rescue/intervention would have been for this administration to
      request that air space from the Libyan gov.. The fact that they never
      even took that 1st step clearly indicates that they had, for reasons yet
      to be revealed, absolutely NO INTENT to attempt any degree of
      rescue/intervention. THIS was reinforced yesterday when the testimony
      given indicated, once again, that NO attempt was made to help our
      soldiers. Herein lies the absolute failure of the Commander in Chief who
      had the responsibility to make sure ALL was being done to help our
      brave military and our Ambassador. Hicks had also testified to the fact
      that orders to ‘stand down’ in so many words was given. Those facts seem
      to have been overlooked by Beck, FOX, and many other medias.

    Some might call it a cover-up, or political strategy, but out here in the real world it’s a lie. And if our children did the same they would be punished. Imagine, our President teaching the youth how to be a lying, selfish bas…

    This is going to hurt Obama’s bid for a 3rd term.

Then this lie deserve another question then if your worry about safety why didn’t this White House have military move troops & planes ,ships for quick staging area on temporary stand by in that area to assist in protection or for a rescue , especially leading to the date 911 where the terrorists fractions like to striking on that date ??? Plus the Libya Embassor and C.I.A was asking for more security and back up rescue plans and forces in nearby positions to assist !!???????????????? Hey obama your getting in deeper in your quicksands of lies now your administration lying to cover a lie !!!!!!!!! Beside the 8 or 10 hours to respond they had previous hours and days to respond to these protests might turn violate or a terrorists attack to pre position troop for quick rescue or boost security of the compounds , by having troop in ready positions and this obama administration

    Dear Mr. Glenn,
    What ever the situation seems to be, Obama has been somehow supporting Iran.
    When the Iranian people demonstrated against the Mullahas. OBABA DID NOT SUPPORT THE IRANIAN PEOPLE. may be I am stupid, but the record shows that
    OBAMA is being BLACKMAILED by the MULLAHS.
    Thank you Mr. Glenn,
    Isaac Shamoun.

It was obama administration leak that Israel was planning a pre-emptive strike by using a neigboring country air base so Israel jets can perform the defending strike and return !! I call that outright betrayal and stabbing our best ally in back ,when they inform us as courtesy what about to take place as us being a ally and be ready for the fallout !! This President is not to be trusted !!!

    All of you surely recall Susan Rice’s collaboration when affirming the video as responsible for the attack on the consulate. And isn’t the person who made the video in prison?
