Oliver North Claims Al Qaeda Video Proves Obama Lied About Group’s Defeat

Proving that politics stops at the water’s edge, and then starts again at 7 p.m. on Fox, Colonel Oliver North told Fox’s Greta van Susteren Wednesday night that the video of an open-air Al Qaeda meeting was proof President Barack Obama had been lying about the terrorist organization’s diminished abilities.

John Brennan, the CIA director, has been lying to the American public, just like Obama’s been lying about being on the ropes with al Qaeda,” North said. “He’s been lying to the American public what the CIA can do. The CIA cannot do human intelligence.”

North called the video a “pep rally,” which amazingly was already on the chyron. Must have been a coincidence.

“This whole organization on the screen behind us should have been penetrated years ago,” North continued. “It hasn’t been. It’s not been penetrated in Yemen. It’s not been penetrated in Saudi Arabia. Certainly not in Pakistan. What they don’t know is how to get inside it. That’s the real problem here. Lack of intelligence — that’s how [an al Qaeda meeting] happens.”
