Gen. David Petraeus, one of the most highly decorated men in the military and one of the most highly respected figures in Washington among both political Parties, testified to Congress today that both President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice lied to the public when they quickly mobilized an effort just after the Benghazi attacks to deceive the public into thinking that the attacks were motivated by an obscure anti-Islamic film.
Petraeus testified that immediately his agency, the CIA, knew that the attacks were perpetrated by organized terrorists with connections to al Qaeda, and that this information was well known at the White House, the State Department, and the Department of Defense.
But someone, somehow changed the talking points used by Rice when she appeared on five Sunday news shows to claim that no terrorism was linked to the attack but that the murders of four U.S. personnel at the consulate in Benghazi were due to "spontaneous protests over a film made in the U.S. that insults the prophet Muhammad."
