RON HART: O-bots abound

ROSEMARY BEACH — Near the 2012 election, and after bragging about killing bin Laden based on intelligence gained by water-boarding (a tactic he campaigned against), Obama and his O-bots lied to us about Benghazi. O-bots are the many disciples in his administration and the media who, like robots, do Obama's bidding when it's asked for or implied.

O-bots knowingly put out the false narrative blaming the 9/11 attack on a "spontaneous reaction" to an obscure YouTube video. Either the Benghazi Film Critics' Society is the most brutal in the world, or the release of the amateur video just happened to coincide with “Bring Your Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher to Work Day.” 

It was a lie from the get-go.

Hillary Clinton’s State Department colluded with other agencies, and probably Obama’s campaign team in Chicago, to rewrite the post-Benghazi talking points 11 times and purge them of anything that reflected negatively on the president. Her redacting the facts from the administration’s narrative in order to protect her meal ticket, the president of the United States, rings nostalgic.  It’s as if she is first lady again.

Even if the truth had slipped out, that al-Qaida overran our defenses at the Benghazi consulate and then the terrorists outran our ability to catch them, the media would have been instructed to say, "Obama has Islamic militants on the run!"

I don't put much stock in second-guessing the decisions leading up to the Benghazi attacks. Our consulates and embassies are sitting ducks for these radical religious terrorists.

What I continue to point out are the lies and cover-ups that ensued, aided by the media. And most troubling, to legitimize their lies, the O-bots had seven armed policemen ceremoniously arrest, on dubious charges and on national television, the hapless U.S. citizen who made that YouTube video. He still sits in prison today, held without bail, nine months later. That should send chills down your spine.
