Misleading Claims in Robert Creamer’s Benghazi Post

Liberals just can’t keep up with their own lies.
Check it out:


Left-wing political strategist Robert Creamer has published a piece pushing back on renewed interest in Benghazi. Creamer makes a number of claims, several of which can be rebutted. Let’s walk through his argument:

The original Republican narrative about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was premised on the assumption that President Obama failed to recognize that the attack involved “terrorism.” This charge is still being made today despite the fact that the president himself — several days after the event — referred to the event as “act of terror.”

Creamer’s quote is wrong and his claim is misleading. The President did not refer to Benghazi as an “act of terror” he referred, late in his speech, to “acts of terror.” This came after a discussion of the 11th anniversary of 9/11. But earlier in the speech he said “The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack.” He did not label it terror.
