Liz Cheney told Sean Hannity tonight that the Benghazi 9-11 cover-up was probably one of the worst cover-ups in the history of the republic.
“This is one of the worst cover-ups probably in the history of the republic. In terms of, we’re not talking about a policy that went awry here. We’re talking about an ambassador and three other Americans who were killed. We’re talking about a nation under attack… A lot of people have asked me, ‘Why would they lie about something so critically important?’ The reason they do is is because they got to get the American people to believe that this president has been an effective national security president.”
For days the Obama White House claimed the attack was caused by an anti-Islamic video, when it is clear they knew within 24 hours it was an Al-Qaeda terrorist attack. The cover-up may be connected to repeated requests for additional security that was denied by the Obama State Department, even though numerous smaller attacks and incidents had taken place for months leading up to September 11, 2012, when U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi.
