About That Benghazi Narrative…

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is on a mission to debunk the Obama administration’s lies and poor decision making. This time, it’s about Benghazi and terrorism. “I didn’t have any specific information” at the time, Panetta said, “but the fact was that when you bring grenade launchers to a demonstration, there’s something else is going on. From the very beginning I sensed that this was an attack, a terrorist attack on our compound. I remember saying to [David Petraeus], ‘Look, based on the weapons that I see and the nature of the attack, I think this was a terrorist attack.’ He said, ‘Look, the information we are getting from intelligence sources is that it really was a demonstration.’ I said, ‘You know, David, I don’t see it that way. I think we are dealing with what in effect, with a group of terrorists who took advantage of the situation in order to go after our people.’” Panetta was right again.
