I would like to clear up some misinformation in Lloyd Berresford’s letter on what happen in Bengazhi and President Obama’s response to it.
Ansar al Shari, a little known militant group, had claimed credit for the attack in Libya. Libya had just overthrown their dictator leader with the help of a Western coalition including the United States. The situation in Libya was very unstable with murderous militant groups spread out among the nation with heavy arms. Any Muslim terrorist group can claim to fall under the Al-Quaeda label.
On 9-11, 2012, our embassy was attacked violently, and the result was four deaths of Americans.
The day after the attack President Obama stood in the Rose Garden and told the American people that the attack in Libya was described as “attacks of terror.” He identified the Sept. 11 assault in Libya as a terrorist attack within a day.
Presidential spokesman Jay Carney said on Sept. 16, “It is, I think, self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.” President Obama stated in the debate that the ultimate responsibility falls on his shoulders.
My sources of information comes from Fact Check and CNN. People who only listen to one source of information, the Fox News bubble station, need to get other sources of information.
