The first message, reporting the attack, was sent at 4:05 PM. The second message, sent at 4:54, reported that the firing had stopped. The third message, sent at 6:07, reported that an Al Qaeda linked group, Ansar al-Sharia, was claiming responsibility.

Yet for two weeks that lie was spread repeatedly by Barack Obama and his top officials. If Barack Obama were a Republican president, the media and its left-wing allies would be chanting, "People died and Obama lied!"
