The only lie related to this that I attribute DIRECTLY to Obama is when he has gone back AFTER THE FACT and claimed he called it terrorism all along. That's complete bullshit and he got 4 pinocchios for it just recently.
(1) What lie provided political cover during an election?
(2) What was the motive for the lie?
(3) Was the lie believed by anyone? If yes, who?
(4) Did anyone who believed the lie do something that he would not have done because of that belief? If yes, what?
