It's time for this administration to own up to the truth

Saturday, October 13, 2012 - 12:01 am

I never thought I would live in an America where we have a media designed to spread propaganda and cover up the news instead of looking for the facts. I never thought Americans would allow this to happen to them. I never thought Americans would fall for it hook, line and sinker, but many have.

On Sept. 11, exactly 11 years after the tragedy of 9/11. America was, again, attacked by terrorists. For the first time since 1979 an American ambassador was killed in a foreign land at one of our American embassies. Headline news to be sure!

Many unanswered questions for the media to delve into: Why was our ambassador not protected? Why was he there virtually alone? Was there any evidence suggesting this attack might happen? How did the terrorists find the “safe house”?

With all of these questions looming, imagine my shock at seeing a media frenzy attacking, not President Obama, but presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Romney had, rightly, condemned repeated White House apologies for the hurt feelings of radical Muslims — the same radical Muslims who had just brutally murdered our ambassador and three other Americans!

The story gets worse. Our president comes out Sept. 12 and condemns an obscure video from YouTube. Then the president attacks candidate Romney for “politicizing the issue” and tries, again, to appease the radical Muslims.

Am I the only one who sees the problem here?

The fact is, not only were we attacked, but four Americans died in Libya alone, including our ambassador. As the pundits and press continue to decry candidate Romney for the timing of his statement, riots erupt in 50 other countries. The Obama administration says these are protests against an obscure, badly produced video, but not America. However, the protesters are burning pictures of our president and our U.S. flag, while chanting, “Death to America!”

This administration continues to deny the reality of this attack for days. Where is the media? Where are the real journalists? Where are the questions?

We are being fed pure propaganda by the “elite” news media. They are trying to distract us from the truth. This administration has failed us with its foreign policy of appeasement, and this administration will not be held accountable by the news media. Is this what we want in America? Do we want to be lied to and distracted from the truth? Do we want to be led like sheep to the slaughter?

It’s time to wake up and search out the truth on your own. You can no longer rely on the so-called “mainstream” media.

Vote this administration out of the White House in November. It’s time for the truth to be told. We are running out of time.
