Judge Napolitano: Did Government Have a Legal Obligation to Tell the Truth About Libya Attack?
It may seem like an obvious question ... but the answer may surprise you. This morning, Judge Andrew Napolitano discussed new documents revealed to Fox News showing that the White House knew the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was pre-planned terrorism, even though the administration maintained it wasn't for a stretch of time after the attack.
Fox Business Network's Stuart Varney raised the question of whether or not the president or government officials hold any legal obligation to tell the truth. Napolitano's answer?
The government has no obligation legally to tell the truth or reveal it, he told Varney. A moral obligation, however, yes.
"It's unfortunate for the president, but fortunate for the voters," Napolitano continued, citing the fact that now, voters get the chance to respond in way of votes as to how they feel about the current administration's handling of the Libya attack.
