But instead it released a truncated version of an interview edited to make it seem that the opposite was true.
Completely and utterly in the tank, as Brett Baier points out. But what else is new?
Understand that this interview is just hours after he gets out of the Rose Garden.
How after this exchange and the CIA explanation of what was being put up the chain in the intel channels does the Ambassador to the United Nations go on the Sunday shows and say what she says about a spontaneous demonstration sparked by that anti-Islam video? And how does the president deliver a speech to the United Nations 13 days later where he references that anti-Islam video six times when referring to the attack in Benghazi?
There are many questions, and here are a few more.
Why did CBS release a clip that appeared to back up Obama’s claim in the second debate on Oct. 19, a few days before the foreign policy debate, and not release the rest of that interview at the beginning?
Why on the Sunday before the election, almost six weeks after the attack, at 6 p.m. does an obscure online timeline posted on CBS.com contain the additional “60 Minutes” interview material from Sept. 12?
Why wasn’t it news after the president said what he said in the second debate, knowing what they had in that “60 Minutes” tape — why didn’t they use it then? And why is it taking Fox News to spur other media organizations to take the Benghazi story seriously?
Whatever your politics, there are a lot of loose ends here, a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of strange political maneuvers that don’t add up.
That’s what reporters should live for, but this time they’re not. We will.
No wonder Obama (and liberals) consider Fox the enemy. The colossal nerve of them, pursuing this story! And no wonder the liberal masses are told that Fox is a bunch of lying liars. That way there’s no need to ever pay a particle of attention to it.
If Obama wins tomorrow (perish the thought), I hope Fox pursues and pursues and pursues this until the entire country has to pay attention. Of course, it may be too little too late. That’s what Obama and the rest of the MSM are counting on.
