O’Reilly: ‘No Longer Any Doubt’ That White House Downplayed Benghazi Terror Angle
The latest Washington Post/ABC News poll is not good news for President Barack Obama or Democrats running for Congress.
The poll found that Obama’s disapproval rating is at 52 percent, 54 percent disapprove of the economy and 57 percent don’t like ObamaCare. Only 34 percent of respondents approve of Obama’s handling of the situation with Russia and Ukraine.
On top of low poll numbers, Judicial Watch has obtained a White House memo through the Freedom of Information Act, which confirms the worst about Benghazi, according to Bill O’Reilly.
The memo, written by Ben Rhodes three days after the attack, intended to prep Susan Rice for the media.

In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere.
The email lists the following two goals, among others:
"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."
"To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."
“So there’s no longer any doubt that the White House was pushing the spontaneous uprising theory and playing down the organized terror angle,” O’Reilly said. “No longer any doubt they did it.”
Obama should have told the nation the truth about Benghazi, but he didn’t, O’Reilly said.
“The Factor” host also mentioned Ed Henry’s recent question to the president concerning his foreign policy doctrine. Obama responded, “Well, Ed, I doubt that I’m going to have time to lay out my entire foreign policy doctrine. And there are actually some complimentary pieces as well about my foreign policy, but I’m not sure you ran them.”
In light of these poll numbers and the new Benghazi revelation, O’Reilly said the president’s response makes him look foolish.
O’Reilly believes that the GOP has a real shot of keeping the House and winning the Senate if it focuses on foreign policy, the economy and health care.
“Talking Points doesn’t root for any political party,” he said. “I simply want the best for all Americans and […] we’re not getting that right now.”
