In a stunning reversal, the Washington Post is beginning to raise doubts about President Barack Obama’s response to the terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11.
According to Politico, “Washington Post foreign policy columnist David Ignatius – the White House’s go-to guy on previous intelligence leaks – writes tonight that a recent Fox News report into the attack on Benghazi ‘has raised some questions about the attack that deserve a clearer answer from the Obama administration.”
On Friday, Fox’s Jennifer Griffin reported that the CIA was told not to deploy officers to the U.S. consulate, and their requests for military assistance were denied. The CIA denied the report, a spokesperson said, “the agency reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi. Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are inaccurate.”
The Washington Post responded, “so what did happen in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, when Woods, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and two other Americans were killed? The best way to establish the facts would be detailed, unclassified timeline of events; officials say they are preparing one, and that it may be released later this week. That’s a must even in the volatile final week of the campaign.”
