Skip to comments.Tapper: Who Decided There'd Be No Marines to Protect Libya Posts? Carney: Ask State Dept.

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.
And under the bus goes Hillary. Serves the Clinton grifters right for helping advance this fool’s career.
That bus better have a high suspension and some off-road tires.
Jarrett had plenty of protection at Martha’s vinyard
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.
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.
I would like to spend a few hours with Ms. Jarrett.
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.
I don’t think Hillary will go quietly under the bus.
I would rather step into a telephone booth with a wild mountain lion, than be around that deranged looking freak.
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.
“Hillary answers the phone at 3:00 AM.” - Carney/WH
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.
I could think of a few things I would like to do with her...
What is it she does now? Look how she rubs her hands.
It is an accustom’d action with her, to seem thus
washing her hands. I have known her continue in this a quarter of
Yet here’s a spot.
Hark, she speaks. I will set down what comes from her, to
satisfy my remembrance the more strongly.
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?
