Since 9/11 2012, there have been conflicting reports about what happened in Cairo, Benghazi and across the Islamic world. I offer my assessment.
The background for the script was simple. It starts with the political oratory that Osama Bin Laden was dead, El Qaeda was finished and GM was alive. Political, not security decisions were made to keep an appearance of tranquility in the Middle East, thus limited security in Benghazi.
The campaign script then laid out how to deal with the expected 9/11 demonstrations across the Middle East. Make an anti-Mohamed movie, made by a man living in the United States, the cause. An apology from the American Embassy in Egypt would be put out for American consumption that the protests were not an anti-American backlash. The protests are over the movie. The script has the cast talk about the movie. The President and the Secretary of State are to apologize for the movie on a video. It is again for an American audience. Take into custody the man that made the movie on unrelated charges and “perp walk” him for the press. Objections to the right of free speech are to be expected but should cause little lasting concern. In a week or so the American people will forget and the Obama presidential campaign can continue to victory.
The stage was set and the scripts given out to the cast. The curtain rose and the cast began to play their roles. But, there was an unscripted El Qaeda participation in Benghazi and four Americans were killed. El Qaeda had their own script. Kill the American Ambassador to Libya. The cast plays on.
As is attributed to Hitler,” Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
