Tapper: Who Decided There'd Be No Marines to Protect Libya Posts? Carney: Ask State Dept.
CNS News ^ | 9/19/2012 | Jon Street

Posted on 09/19/2012 6:12:31 PM PDT by tobyhill

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters at the White House press briefing on Wednesday that they should ask the State Department if they wanted to find out who decided not to station Marines at U.S. diplomatic posts in Libya, where the U.S. ambassador and three others were killed at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

ABC White House Correspondent Jake Tapper asked Carney: “In the wake of the attacks on Benghazi, the Pentagon and the State Department both made statements that they then had to correct, the Pentagon involving whether or not there were Marines at the embassy in Tripoli--there were not--and the State Department regarding the presence of security firms at the Benghazi compound. Why was there such confusion and is the White House conducting any sort of internal investigation as to what went wrong”?

I’m so disgusted. We are responsible for Stevens’ death. We knew this was coming. Obama is a Muslim and remember....Muslims are allowed to lie.

That silly Jake Tapper, thinks he’s a real journalist. Guess he hasn’t got the word yet that he’s supposed to only ask the approved questions.

Sure sounds like our president present per se, is throwing Hillary under the bus . . .

That bus better have a high suspension and some off-road tires.

Mme. Hillary deserves to go under the bus - no victim here. I am sure that Chris Stevens agreed with this policy, Islamopanderer that he was.

The WH throws Hillary UNDER THE BUS, AFTER they get Willy to pimp him at the DNC convention. TELL ME The Clinton's did NOT fall for that?

Bill/Hillary, there's still time to do something about it.....

It’s just misdirection by Carney. It is well known that State is refusing to answer those questions. State Dept. is just refusing to talk about security.

Maybe this will get Tapper to start to asking some questions about what the kenyan was doing while the mission burned to the ground and the ambassador was MIA. And what the NSC in the WH did/didn’t do.

Carney can’t refuse to talk about what the WH role is in this mess without looking like a buffoon.

Too late.

But you are correct - just temporary misdirection and stonewalling till the MSM decides to jump to the next fake,trumped-up Romney "gaffe"

First, let me say yet again that Tapper is FAR too honest a reporter to be working for that cesspool, ABC.

Second, I’ll add my voice to the chorus here of “Hillary just got thrown under the bus”. Carney may just as well have said “It’s Hillary’s fault”.

The Clintons and the Obamas loathe each other. “Keep your friends close....your enemies closer” explains a lot about their current “relationship”.

This, however, takes it all to a whole new level. Obama just declared war on the Clintons.

Popping corn..............this will get interesting.

Footdragging at State will be the mission, just long enough to get smart poweress, Hillary, safely shelved into permanent retirement. That’s the sole purpose of coming up with this “investigation” by State and accompanying gag order on press questions.

Drudge has a new headline about Woods & Doherty. Team kenya’s web of lies are coming unraveled. Smells like CIA push back to me. What will State do now that they have been totally unmasked as bumbling fools?

Looks like there was essential no security for the Ambassador and mission. Unbelievable even for the Obama admin.

Doctor:
What is it she does now? Look how she rubs her hands.

Gentlewoman:
It is an accustom’d action with her, to seem thus
washing her hands. I have known her continue in this a quarter of
an hour.

Lady MacHillary:
Yet here’s a spot.

Doctor:
Hark, she speaks. I will set down what comes from her, to
satisfy my remembrance the more strongly.

Lady MacHillary:
Out, damn’d spot! out, I say!—One; two: why, then
‘tis time to do’t.—Hell is murky.—Fie, my lord, fie, a soldier, and
afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our
pow’r to accompt?—Yet who would have thought the gay man to
have had so much blood in him?

These deaths are on Hillary.

At the least she should be forced out of the State Dept.

Never heard that before. Is it true?

Why was Ambassador Stephens 1000 miles from the American Embassy in Tripoli, without sedurity (0 security...none...not a single security person) on 9-11? Does that seem incredulous to anyone but me?

Hmm, no security in a dangerous hot spot that is already a powder keg. Remember the scene in The Godfather in which Michael Corleone shows up to visit his father in the hospital and finds that the security guards hired to protect his father are gone? It just looks suspicious to me.

He is on a mission, but it is not a state dept. mission. It wasn’t the beautiful scenery in war-torn Libya. He was there to do something. Hillary sent him to do something there....Obama had Hillary send him there to do something. He was there to...work with 2 Ex-Seals to procure high value objects, information,...something. And that something was so important that he was ordered to go there, despite the extreme danger, despite being a known homosexual in a place where they do terrible things to homosexuals, despite having no secutity for protection,...he was sent there to protect Obama in a very close election year that would blow the lid off of any election chances,...he was sent there to.....to do what?.... What was so important that he would put himself at that much risk? Was he part of reprocuring arms the US had bought with Obamas $25 million to the rebels, which they had to know what extreme risk this entailed? Was he sent there explicitly to be killed (Vince Foster)? What makes sense?

Tapper again asking the tough questions of the WH, well tough at least when compared to the rest of the MSM. I’m starting to sense an undercurrent of dissatisfaction among libtards with O.

Could it be that Stevens, himself a homosexual, knew too much about Obama’s secret gay life? Just send him to a hostile Muslim country and deny him any means of defense. Then just sit back and let the nature of Muslim savagery take its course. That’ll make sure he never talks!

Breitbart: “Obama Reverses Position on Intel Briefs, Drops I-Pad for Live Meetings”

Oooh, I agree that this is about to raise things to a new level. Gotta love the smell of infighting. Oh, to be a fly on the wall and really hear these POS’s threaten the hell out of each other.

Also popping corn, here. Sadly, I doubt we will hear a lot of the actual fighting, but, I also don’t think Bill is going to allow Hillary to take the blame for this without taking some others down with him!

Stephens would have had to be suicidal to do what he did. He knew this area better than most and the accompaning dangers. There must be something else that compelled him to take such an unacceptible risk. Advancement? Money? Favor with Obama? I do not know. But going into Benghazi 1000 miles from any security, essentially alone, without any waiting security, in a vehicle which was not armored, on 9-11, was insane. Did someone convince him (Hillary) that this action would carry no risk....she has alread check it out?

Not only that .. HILLARY HATES THE MILITARY. I think that’s why there were no Marines at the Embassy or the Consulate.

Remember .. when the Clintons were in the WH, the military staff were not allowed to wear their uniforms ..??

And .. I’m fully convinced Hillary is to blame for there not being any live fire in any of the weapons at either the Embassy or the Consulate.

What I don’t understand is why the two former Seals at the Safe House were not armed to the teeth ..?? Very curious.

Question to Carney: How many times, since taking office, has President Obama repeated President Truman's famous quote, "The buck stops here?"

Carney: Ask the State Dept.

And a majority of gays are comfortable—for those they would have as friends if not for themselves—with anonymous bathroom cruising, glory holes and unprotected sex. It’s fairly close to a guilty-conscience death wish, as I see it. Stevens’ not wanting to rely on military types, but preferring the emasculated-ROE, rassle-those-bad-boys-to-the-ground (oooooooh!) retired bobby “security” types. It all pretty well fits with the ‘rat mindset, and those who force changing the names of Police Departments into Departments of Public Service.
