White House sees no sign Libya attack premeditated

By AP Staff

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says it doesn't have any indication that last week's deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was premeditated. But White House spokesman Jay Carney says the matter still is under investigation and that assessment could change.

Carney said that, so far, there is no evidence to back up claims that the attacks that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, were planned. He said the violent protest appears to have been sparked by an anti-Islam film made in the U.S.

Carney says investigators will "follow the facts wherever they lead." He says the goal is to find out what happened and why, and to track down those responsible for the deaths.

The Libyan president has contended foreign militants plotted the attack for months.

      He doesn’t have to believe it. He just has to make America believe it. Fortunately, most of us don’t, or the Ambassador to the UN either.

    Now, now, now…let’s not cast aspersions against the Press Secretary or any representative of this administration. They may be exhausted dullards but they do have feelings and are our fellow human beings. It’s the President, that far-sighted genius whose clever and enlightened foreign policy I would excoriate ~ not the _simple_ man but the policies, the programs, the plotting.

    Practice makes perfect. Four years of lying, and one can forget about any possibility of truth.

    Obama’s “spokes-idiot” must be making a 7 digit income. Anything less wouldn’t be worth the embarrassment of knowingly spewing the garbage that Barry’s amateur handlers instruct him to say. “Track down those responsible for the deaths”? Turn around stupid, those responsible occupy the White House!
