As wheels come off ‘blame the video’ narrative, #BenghaziGate trends

Like a cold being passed around the office, the truth behind the death of the United States’ ambassador to Libya is spreading — slowly — through the Obama administration. Today, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta admitted in a press conference that the assault which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others “was a terrorist attack.”

Panetta’s appearance today leaves the president himself as perhaps the final holdout from using the word “terrorism.” While Obama declined to use the word during his appearances on “The View” and at the United Nations, surrogate Jay Carney told the press yesterday that “it is certainly the case that it is our view as an administration, the president’s view, that it was a terrorist attack.”

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has sent a letter to the State Department demanding answers, and even the mainstream media have decided to jump off the president’s lap in the face of overwhelming evidence.

Now that all except Obama himself seem to have jumped off of the “blame the video” bandwagon (even as the filmmaker finds himself held without bail), Twitter users have started #Benghazigate trending in a search for answers and accountability.

Remember when Obama and Hillary were standing by the coffins and lied about the attacks? I do. Apparently the media doesn't. #BENGHAZIGATE

#Benghazigate is either a lie or severe miscommunication. Until they can prove the latter, it's a lie. #Hannity

#BENGHAZIGATE #Obama is either a liar, incompetent, or an incompetent liar.

What Obama and the media have done is unforgivable. I am ashamed. Our entire media should resign in disgrace. #BENGHAZIGATE

#BenghaziGate should bring down the Obama presidency – but of course the corrupt media is covering for him. #MediaBias

If MSM were doing their job #BENGHAZIGATE would be the ONLY topic of discussion. If it was Bush it would be Breaking news on the networks.
