The nice thing about having a Democrat in the White House is that there is never any bad news.

Obama's lies about Benghazi are now exposed.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has released a bipartisan report on the Benghazi attack that finds that the assault could have and should have been prevented. The Obama administration should have stepped up security at the facility, but failed to do so. The committee concluded that the threat environment in Benghazi leading up to the attack should have caused the State Department to make up for the known security shortfalls at the U.S. facility in the city before the attack. The report does not explore or explain why the State Department consistently denied field requests to beef up security.

The committee’s statement regarding confusion and protest does not line up with classified testimony given by Gen. Carter Ham, then commander of AFRICOM. Ham testified in a closed session that the military knew that the violence in Benghazi was a terrorist attack just 15 minutes after it began. Ham testified that while there was some sidebar discussion among top administration officials about the possibility that a movie had sparked it, it was clear from the outset that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, not a riot gotten out of control. Ham told the House that he, Gen. Dempsey and then Defense Secretary Leon Panetta knew shortly after the attack began that Ambassador Chris Stevens was its target. Ham ordered an unarmed drone positioned over the attack just 17 minutes after it began, providing Washington both reports from the ground and visuals from the air that showed that the assault was a pre-planned, coordinated attack. Ham’s and Dempsey’s testimony demonstrate that the military was not confused in the least about the nature and origins of the attack, and neither was Panetta.

The Media is hunkering into its second day of news blackout.

Are there no other Americans they can arrest to distract attention?
