More Obama Fail: Libyan president Mohammed Magarief disputes video claim, won’t let FBI in
Update: “U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told me this morning on “This Week” that the United States is not “impotent” in the face of violent anti-American protests sweeping the Muslim world.” With more discussion here. Who are you going to believe? Me, or your lying eyes?
Most chilling is that Libyan President Mohammed Magarief is saying what we all know to be true. It’s the Obama administration, with help from the media, disputing him by pushing the it was instantaneous because of the video meme. U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice pushes the video myth, as well.
It would at least appear as though we’re more likely to get straight answers from Libya, than our own government at this point. But putting our faith in any new Libyan regime is little comfort.
Read the whole thing. The contrast is startling. While Magarief doesn’t actually humiliate Obama, as Sudan did, it’s obvious he’s not worried about what Barack wants. I guess he’s an in charge guy, not an empty chair type.
“The United States wants the FBI to investigate the consulate attack, but Magarief said it may be too soon to send in investigators. ”It may be better for them to stay away for a little while until we do what we have to do ourselves,” he said.’
Libyan President Mohammed Magarief said on Sunday that about 50 people have been arrested in connection with the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last week, which he said was planned by foreigners linked to al Qaeda.
The media: The attack on Tuesday in Benghazi came amid protests over a video ….
Mohammed Magarief: … they were planning criminal acts since their arrival,” Magarief said….
The administration: The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said on Sunday talks shows that the preliminary information indicated the attack was a spontaneous reaction to the video.
