Krauthammer: Two Reasons the Obama Administration Lied About the Libya Attack
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer joined Hannity to react to President Obama describing the death of four Americans in Libya as “not optimal” on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Pat Smith, the mother of murdered State Department official Sean Smith responded, “It’s insensitive to say my son is not very optimal – he is also very dead. I’ve not been ‘optimal’ since he died and the past few weeks have been pure hell.”
The final presidential debate on Monday deals with foreign policy and the issue of Libya is likely to be a big part of that discussion. Krauthammer previewed
what he thinks Mitt Romney needs to do during the debate regarding this issue. He said “This is [Romney’s] real opportunity to make the point about presidential leadership, presidential honesty and candor; and also about the collapse of the Obama policy in the Middle East, which is all sort of symbolized by the Libya debacle.”

Krauthammer believes that there were two reasons for a cover-up. He told Hannity, “The first reason was the fact that this September 11th attack occurred one week after they had just spent four days in Charlotte dancing on the grave of bin Laden. Remember, this is their single foreign policy achievement.”
The second reason Krauthammer identified is that the Obama campaign has the mainstream media in their pocket. This was evident when the mainstream media spent three days attacking Romney for denouncing the apologetic statement put out by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, which was soon retracted by the Obama administration itself.
