Administration hid truth on Benghazi

May 13, 2013 

During the Benghazi hearing Wednesday, the truth came out. It was a terrorist attack from the beginning, the administration knew it, and the emails surfacing now provide the evidence that they covered it up.

They changed the message to blame the incident on some video. Why you ask? President Obama had a re-election to worry about. He couldn't afford to look weak, especially after claiming victory over the terrorists a week earlier. Hillary Clinton certainly couldn't afford a major security incident on her watch with 2016 approaching. So, showing their true leadership, they ignored the requests for support during the attack and left Americans alone to defend themselves.

The phone rang, and they didn't answer it. Then they changed the story to spin it for political gain.
