PRESS RELEASE


LaRouche PAC: Obama Crew Covered Up Assassination of Ambassador Stevens

Sept. 27 (EIRNS)—In a statement going out on Capitol Hill today, the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee documents the coverup being carried out by President Obama and his crew, on the assassination of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and asserts they are grounds for Obama's immediate impeachment. The full statement reads as follows:

GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT

Obama and His Crew Covered Up the Assassination of Ambassador Stevens

Sept. 26, 2012 (LPAC)—President Barack Obama is guilty of covering up the assassination of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. diplomats on Sept. 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya. For this high crime and misdemeanor, the President should be immediately brought before the U.S. House of Representatives for impeachment.

The facts in the case for impeachment are proven and undeniable. Beginning within hours of the heinous killing of Ambassador Stevens and the others, and the overrunning of the CIA safe-house in Benghazi, President Obama, White House spokesman Jay Carney and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, conducted a campaign of outright lies, to conceal from the American people their complicity in the deaths in Benghazi. They knew within hours of the assassination that the attack had been a premeditated 9/11 attack by elements of the British-Saudi sponsored Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.

The U.S. State Department was so concerned about the deteriorating security situation on the ground in Libya that they issued a travel warning on Aug. 27, 2012 against any Americans going to Libya. They singled out the uncontrolled situation in the Benghazi area, where terrorist groups had been gaining ground for months.

Why, under these deteriorating circumstances, Mr. President, were there no U.S. Marine guards at the Benghazi consulate? Why was security at the compound outsourced to a private British mercenary company, Blue Mountain Group, with ties to the very British Special Air Services (SAS) that has been arming and training the Libyan Jihadists to wage terrorist war in Syria, Mali, and in other parts of North Africa and Southwest Asia? These are questions that must be answered now — before the American people go to the polls on November 6.

Not only did President Obama and Ambassador Rice lie, repeatedly, that the Benghazi attack was a spontaneous act of mob violence in retaliation for a little-known video slandering the Prophet Mohammed. On Sept. 16, long after the President of Libya had provided details on the Al Qaeda cell behind the Benghazi assassinations, Ambassador Rice was dispatched by President Obama to appear on five national television networks, to repeat the lies about the incident. Even after the head of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawaheri, issued a public statement, claiming responsibility for the Stevens assassination as new 9/11 attack, avenging the killing of a top Libyan associate by U.S. drone attacks in June, the President and his crew continued to suppress the truth.

When CNN obtained a copy of Ambassador Stevens' personal diaries, and reported that he knew he was on an Al Qaeda hit list and feared for his life, the White House attempted to block the story and persisted in suppressing daily revelations proving that the attack had been a premeditated act of international terrorism. It has now been corroborated by numerous eyewitnesses that there never was a protest demonstration outside the Benghazi consulate on Sept. 11, as the President, Ambassador Rice, and others claimed. All that took place was a heavily armed, professional, pre-planned assault, resulting in the murders of Ambassador Stevens and the others.

Is this the kind of behavior that warrants a second term as President? For more than ten days, President Obama and his loyalists lied to the American people, refused to explain why the Commander-in-Chief had failed to provide protection to endangered American frontline diplomats and intelligence officers, and targeted those attempting to puncture the veil of lies.

When leading members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee attempted to launch an immediate investigation, to provide answers to the American people before November 6, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) blocked the effort, deferring to the Administration and backing an executive branch inquiry that will not be completed before April 2013.
