Skip to comments.Carney: We Didn't Lie About Libya, We Just Had Different Facts At the Time

During a press gaggle on board Air Force One this morning in Virginia Beach, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney accused Mitt Romney of "politicizing" the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in reference to pressure from the campaign to come clean about what really happened. Carney also referred reporters to an ongoing FBI investigation when asked about specifics on Libya. The problem? The FBI still isn't in Benghazi despite the administration saying repeatedly they are. Carney also tried to spin Obama's refusal to call the attack an act of terrorism and covered for the administration in its lie to the American people that the attack was "spontaneous" and not planned.
Q On Benghazi, there still is considerable confusion over what the administration considers the attack on the U.S. consulate. Can you say why the FBI still hasnt been able to get into that crime scene? And how aggressively is the United States looking for clues, and as the President says, bringing them to justice?
MR. CARNEY: I would have to refer you to the FBI for specifics about the investigation that theyre leading. I can tell you that the President is determined, as he has said many times, that the perpetrators of the attack that cost four American lives, including our ambassador, be brought to justice. And he will insist that the agencies of his administration take all necessary action to bring about that eventuality.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
How about this fact Jay...you and yours are destroying us. FU
Carney is full of Blarney.
What is Air Force One doing in Va. beach.
By the time they lave the ground at Andrews and get to 10,000 feet they are in va. Beach. he could have taken a helicopter there and been there in 30 minutes.Bt this guy loves that airplane. He is going to cry like a baby when they take that away.
Most Presidents after their election allow the ex President to fly home in Air Force One, I hope Romney tells Obama to catch a commercial flight back to Chicago.
Funny stuff. Just put a link to that pic on my Twitter feed.
Lying about lying, what a putz.
I suggest he provide so called “facts” to determine the WH response. I have one......Fact “Your middle east policy coddles Al Quieda”
Hows that for a fact you lying windbag POS.
Another way of saying they lied.
A disappointing demonstration that, for Rice, and for so many other hyphenated Americans, racism trumps the truth.
To quote HRC, dealing with Carney and the WH gaggle requires a “willing suspension of disbelief”.
