Admin: Never Blamed Video for Libya Massacre
Associated Posers ^ | 10-11-2012 | geronl

(Associated Posers) – WASHINGTON DC – Appearing on CNN's Piers Morgan program Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defended the administration's handling of the Benghazi terror attack aftermath. When asked about the several different stories put forth by the administration she denied any of them were lies.

When Morgan pointed out that these explanations were completely wrong Schultz responded by saying “Well that doesn't mean it was false”.

Host Piers Morgan had to call her on it. “What?! Now wait a minute. If you put out a false statement, then it's false, it's wrong. It's both of those things.”

“The words mean exactly what we mean them to say when we say them” Schultz responded “There is no other meaning to confer onto them. You can not hold me or this administration to our past statements and promises. That would be racist.”

The US State Department now denies blaming the Benghazi terror incident on a 'protest' caused by a Youtube video, despite statements by the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and UN Ambassador Susan Rice. The government now admits there was no protest held. Charles Krauthammer responded to the idea that the government denies blaming the video on Fox News Special Report.

“So everything that Susan Rice said was a confection, it was an invention. And as you showed, it was repeated again and again. You had Hillary Clinton speaking about the video as the body of the ambassador was lying next to her. Then you had Susan Rice spinning the tails. You had the president of the United States addressing the General Assembly more than two weeks later talking about the video, the insult to Islam, et cetera. You have this entire story going all along.”

For more than a week the US government seemed to squarely place the blame on a Youtube video for the violence in Benghazi that left 4 Americans dead at an undefended consulate. The consulate had requested more security and were denied each time.

At the UN President Obama mentioned it in passing saying “The future does not belong to those who blaspheme Islam”

Ambassador Susan Rice now says “Sure, we said and did all that but we always had that caveat that an official explanation will follow the investigation. Those were just personal opinions, not official government statements. We can say all we want as long is there s that caveat in there to cover out asses should we be lying through our teeth like were doing”.

Meanwhile, Jen Psaki who testified in front of Congress defending blaming the video “Innocence of Muslims” was quite snarky on Air Force One en-route to another fundraiser. She said President was the only candidate in the race who is fighting for Big Bird. About 6% of Sesame Street's budget comes from government.

No. He’s still doing his. I’m a fan of his too. So, I take that as a compliment. I’ve only really been doing this for 3 weeks.

Anymore whenever it is a story on the Øbozo regime I’ve taken to first checking to see if it is Semmons or The Onion.

" 'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.' "

The Obama administration has more egg on its face than Humpty Dumpty, so it shouldn't surprise anyone that they're going with his policy.

Talk about clueless and corrupt.... they don’t even try to hide it anymore.

I’m not a fan of satire warnings, although if you are giving them, you should put it in the title, by adding “(SATIRE)”. Of course, John Semmens, who does the clever satire pieces from azconservative, just puts it in the link source “Semi-News/Semi-Satire”

I’ll reserve judgment on whether “humor-impaired” is an insult better applied to the post, rather than those who fail to get the “humor”.

Oops!

Funny thing is, it would not surprise me at all. In fact I’m surprised she hasn’t said it before.

Yes it is. All that stuff we used to joke about is actually coming true.

Nowhere near as good as Semmens. I got it by line four which was the first deviation into satireland.

Had me going for a bit, got as far as the, can't hold us accountable for statements, that would be "Racist". LOL

Otherwise, it is such Obama reality, it is hard to tell the difference anymore.

your welcome. Sometimes I feel we are living in the world of "Idiocracy", getting hard to tell satire from life in America today.
