Turns Out Obama Lied About Phony "Kill-Him" Claims

And now we finally get the "rest of the story" on the phony claims by the Obama campaign that someone yelled "kill him" at a Sarah Palin rally.

Here is part of my original post on this when I first smelled something "fishy". My first clue that it was a false story was that I saw it on soonerthought blog, a target rich environment for democrat lies.

Quote Of The Day? More Like Smear of the Day

To answer a local wreckless and thoughtless blogger's recent post regarding Sarah Palin being responsible for or participating in a threat...

"The Secret Service did not hear any threatening statements directed at targets under its protection and no threatening statements were reported to us by law enforcement or citizens at the event"-Secret Service spokesman
Malcolm Wiley.

The only reports of anyone yelling anything were apparently made-up by a democrat operative.... err I mean "journalist" trying to create something out of nothing... which come to think of it describes the entire Obama campaign." -end

nd now
, finally, 8 days later, after Obama used it in the debate without anyone challenging him on it, we get "the rest of the story"

The Times Leader Reports (hat tip to Michelle Malkin)

The agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton said allegations that someone yelled “kill him” when presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during Tuesday’s Sarah Palin rally are unfounded.

The Scranton Times-Tribune first reported the alleged incident on its Web site Tuesday and then again in its print edition Wednesday. The first story, written by reporter David Singleton, appeared with allegations that while congressional candidate Chris Hackett was addressing the crowd and mentioned Oabama’s name a man in the audience shouted “kill him.”

News organizations including ABC, The Associated Press, The Washington Monthly and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann reported the claim, with most attributing the allegations to the Times-Tribune story.

Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.

“I was baffled,” he said after reading the report in Wednesday’s Times-Tribune.

He said the agency conducted an investigation Wednesday, after seeing the story, and could not find one person to corroborate the allegation other than Singleton.

Slavoski said more than 20 non-security agents were interviewed Wednesday, from news media to ordinary citizens in attendance at the rally for the Republican vice presidential candidate held at the Riverfront Sports Complex. He said Singleton was the only one to say he heard someone yell “kill him.”

“We have yet to find someone to back up the story,” Slavoski said.
“We had people all over and we have yet to find anyone who said they heard it."
