Why on earth did President and his State Department LIE to the American people about what we now know was a terrorist attack on our embassy in Benghazi? Why do they continue to stand beside the lie that they didn't know that it was a terrorist attack? And why would the President stand beside the claim that the attack was caused by a poorly made Buyout movie?
Here are the latest facts:
Washington (CNN) -- Two hours after first being notified of an attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, a government e-mail to the White House, the State Department and the FBI said an Islamist group had claimed credit, according to a copy obtained by CNN.
An initial e-mail was sent while the attack was still underway, and another that arrived two hours later -- sent from a State Department address to various government agencies including the executive office of the president -- identified Ansar al-Sharia as claiming responsibility for the attack on its Facebook page and on Twitter.
The group denied responsibility the next day.
