Ex-CIA chief slams Biden for throwing U.S. spies under the bus during debate...
Daily Mail UK ^ | 13 October 2012 | By Toby Harnden Daily Mail UK

Two former intelligence chiefs today blasted Vice President Joe Biden for making the U.S. intelligence community a scapegoat for ‘the inconsistent and shifting response of the Obama Administration’.

Michael Hayden, former CIA director, and Michael Chertoff, who served as Homeland Security chief, hit out after Biden stunned many in the intelligence community by insisting that the U.S. consulate in Benghazi did not ask for additional security before it was attacked on September 11 - directly contradicting what security officials and diplomats have testified under oath.

The tough joint statement was issued via the Romney campaign. In it they added: ‘Blaming those who put their lives on the line is not the kind of leadership this country needs.’

Obama has to blame somebody. No one really expects Mr. Perfect to accept an blame on himself.

Biden is a parrot, he just says what he was told to say and he was told to say they never knew anyone wanted more security.

They shifted the blame to “Intelligence”,to State ,on anyone who is forced to accept it.Surprised he didn’t say George Bush was leading the mob.

I agree about Cheney but any kind of a public statement by him would be a rallying cry for team 0.

Yep. Hopefully more to come. I want every single Republican in Congress to be demanding resignations or start impeachment hearings. Of course they won’t because they are cowards and refuse to do their jobs

Cheney is not necessary here—the fire is already ragin’. Let the Dems get twisted even more on their own petards of lies.

No democrats and a boatload of republicans will not remember Biden even had a debate in a few days..

This is what democrats officals COUNT ON.. and it works..
It works in Chicago, New York City , L.A.., all of Mexifornia, Oregon and most of Washington State..

also; Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, New Jersey, most of Pennsylvania, even Maine, Vermont, Washington D.C., in Wisconsin ONLY the Police, Fightfighters, teachers, State and local other givernment employees and Auto Workers are that dumb..

Biden again insisted that the administration initially believed the deadly raid was the result of protests over an anti-Muslim YouTube video which were sweeping the Islamic world at the time.

The administration had a cover story in place before the attack started. This leads me to believe that the WH new it was coming and might well have orchestrated it.

Now, to the question of why. Was this just a cover for the assassination of the ambassador because he knew too much or stumbled unto information he wasn't supposed to see.................or...........was this an assassination & destruction of intel that would implicate the SoS or the WH?

This attacked was planned and no one with the ability to offer assistance during the 6 hour firefight was allowed to help.

This administration has blood on it's hands and an end to all ala Mussolini is called for.

I suspect that Slow Joe was correct in that he and the food Stamp President didn’t know anything about the security. The Food Stamp President was out playing golf or upstairs watching sports. Slow Joe was working on a 1952 NY Times crossword puzzle. Neither attended any intelligence briefings or attended ANY cabinet meetings. It is probably UNTRUE that he and the food Stamp President believed what the intelligence people told them because they never were briefed. They brewed up that excuse in conjunction with State. Charlene Lamb, who has never removed her fat bureaucratic a$$ from her Washington office disapproved the security in order to spend the money on pools, electric car plug ins, and other nonsense at other embassies that brought accolades in the out of touch world of Washington. Probably got a huge bonus and maybe a hug and a kiss from Nappie over at Homeland Security.

It wasn’t an intelligence failure, it wasn’t a communications failure, and it wasn’t a failure in the chain of command. It was a decision making failure before, during and after the attack in Benghazi.

Here is a thoughout assessment...

It’s becoming increasingly clear that under the Obama bus is the only honorable place to be. If you’re not there, there’s something wrong with you.

Don’t know but we always thought that the Secret Service were more professional.... at least that was the impression.

Maybe the Congress knows that it would never get any where in the Senate. They would just give O a big ole blubbery kiss like Clinton’s Senate did. It seemed to validate Clinton’s behaviour...and could do the same with O.

That being said...if by some horrible twist of fate O is reelected but we get control of the Senate and keep control of the House...it will be time to ROLL!!!

Biden would laugh at Michael Hayden and Michael Chertoff and roll his eyes. The press is with Biden - and he knows it.

He can be as big a jerk as he wants to be... the MSM pass is ready...

Had Biden pulled down his pants and sh*t on the stage during the debate, the MSM would have called it 'assertive'.

I hope the DNC is paying them what they're worth.

Hmmm, maybe where was suppose to be a protest at Bangazi, and the ambassador was not suppose to be there. The bad guys heard about the “protest” and hi-jacked it, so much so that the “protesters” were afraid to show up. An undercover operation gone bad. That is about the only thing that would explain the facts we have before us. And why the administration stuck to the protest story for so long.

Saw Cheney on FOX the other day - made it clear that the Admin is both telling fibs and exhibiting incompetence.

Excellent question.

In fact, I want to know where everyone was from 3:30 pm to 9:30 pm--Obama,Biden,Clinton, Rice, Kennedy, Lamb, Petraeus, Panetta and WTF they were doing while there was a six hour firefight in Benghazi in the two compounds.

.Let the chips fall where they may--I have had enough this crap.

If someones new home is Ft.Leavenworth, SO BE IT!

The protests around the world were engineered and most of the participants had never seen the “movie” anyway. From what I’ve read, on Sept. 11 it only had something like 10,000 views. It was uploaded to youtube by some Egyptian Muslim. It was created no doubt with at the very least the US administration’s knowledge and very likely more. Some protesters (quote unquote) were hired, here and there. There was no spotaneous outburst of rage against some faux “movie” no one had seen.

IMHO Hitlery and 0moslem were hoping they could pin the attack on a protest and knew well in advance what was going to happen. Then they could trot out “bad, bad movie” to help bring in “no insulting Islam” as a US law.
