"'A New Beginning,' Or A Revised Past? President Barack Obama's Cairo Speech," by Mary Grabar and Brian Birdnow, takes on a new significance now that we know that the speech's author was apparently a major player in the Benghazi cover-up that now imperils Obama's presidency.

The Cairo address, a major work of oratorical appeasement aimed at the Islamic world, was written by Ben Rhodes, the president's 30-something Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speechwriting.

Evidence establishes that Rhodes was involved in shaping the Obama administration's official line before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, hit all major Sunday TV talk shows on the same day a few days after the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks that killed four Americans including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. The administration's talking points were manipulated to disguise the obvious role that Islamic terrorists played in the assault.

Similarly, Obama's Cairo speech was rife with lies.

The oration falsely gave Islam credit for the Enlightenment and religious tolerance. Islam "carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for European Renaissance and Enlightenment," and "has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality," Obama said in the speech.

Grabar and Birdnow counter that in fact "the intellectual Renaissance began when Byzantine scholars, mostly Greek, fled the advancing Turks in the 14th century and settled in Italy. The Enlightenment was openly anti-theistic and would have been anathema to most practicing Muslims.
