Judge Jeanine Pirro
WASHINGTON – Jeanine Pirro, host of the Fox News show “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” says Americans are beset with a president won’t tell them the truth.
“We have a commander in chief who is so incorrect that he says ISIS is not about Islam. Look, this is a religion of peace, Obama tells us. ‘What planet are you from?’” she asked “‘If they’re not Islamic fanatics, what are they, Martians?’”
Pirro, who previously has blasted Obama for not adequately preparing America for the attacks she believes are coming from jihadists, and even said his handling of various crises constitutes impeachable offenses, spoke Thursday night at the annual conference for the nonprofit activist group Act for America.
She hit Obama over the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. special mission in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
“I think about Benghazi. I wonder if the people in our government really want to protect us. When I went to law school, I went to learn about justice and equal rights,” she said. “In the law, you have people whose lives have changed because some dirtbag decided to do something to them. We should call it the criminal injustice system. The victim didn’t choose to be a victim.”
In Benghazi two years ago, there were four Americans who died who “didn’t choose to be victims of that attack. Then our president and secretary of state blamed the Benghazi attack on a video. Are you kidding me?”
She said the administration “took Islam out of the talking points on Benghazi because we didn’t want to offend Muslims!”
“We didn’t want to offend them. Really? Do we really think we’re going to make them hate us more?” Pirro asked.
“What do they gain by lying to us? They gain their political office by lying to us. This administration has to say it was about a video because they didn’t want to admit that they didn’t have Libya under control,” she said.
“He is lying to us. He knew it was terrorists. He knew it was Ansar al-Shariah. He knew who did it. Then he complains when the people in this country criticize the administration over Benghazi,” said Pirro.
“Then they’re apologizing for the man who made the video. The reason they had to fantasize about the video being the cause [was] because they claimed that Libya was normalized. They’re lying! We heard Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey say we couldn’t get there in time,” she said.
“Oh, they tell us we should be happy they arrested the guy who masterminded Benghazi. He spoke to the London Times, Fox, CNN and the media. Then they say it took us a year to find the mastermind of Benghazi,” she said, unleashing on the Democrat in the White House.
“It took them two years after his speaking to the media. They couldn’t get him before that because he would say they were stupid for believing that a video caused it. The mastermind would say that we are stupid. It doesn’t take a video to make them hate us!” Pirro said.
Fox News reported last week three American security operatives claim they repeatedly were told to wait, rather than rush to the aid of colleagues under attack at the facility in Benghazi.
