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.

"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.
