Skip to comments.Crowley On September 30th: Administration Took Weeks To Admit Benghazi Might Be A Terrorist Attack
Posted on 10/17/2012 10:09:51 AM PDT by RummyChick
@lochnar with a great catch from Candy Crowley's interview with David Axelrod on September 30th.
Here's the full exchange for context (video here). I'll highlight what I think are the important parts.
CROWLEY: I am joined by Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod. I want to pick up on what John McCain and I were talking about. There's a back and forth now about why didn't this administration -- why did it take them until Friday after a September 11th attack in Libya to come to the conclusion that it was premeditated and that there was terrorists involved. John McCain said it doesn't pass the smell test, or it's willful ignorance to think that they didn't know before this what was going on. Your reaction?
AXELROD: Well, first of all, Candy, as you know, the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. But when you're the responsible party, when you're the administration, then you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believes. This was -- this is being thoroughly investigated.
CROWLEY: But first it was, like, not planned.
AXELROD: We need to bring to justice--
CROWLEY: First, they said it was not planned, it was part of this tape. All that stuff.
AXELROD: As the director of national intelligence said on Friday, that was the original information that that was given to us. What we don't need is a president or an administration that shoots first and asks questions later.
CROWLEY: But isn't that what happened?

Good catch. Crowley should be forced to eat crow by Romney.
Obviously there was off-air communication shortly thereafter.
Just another lying slut for satan.
she forgot to wear her obama shirt last night but after she jumped in yet again stopping Romney from making a decent point and which most of America has never heard from this crap we call the media then did you see obama’s wife then start clapping?
Yea she was supposed to remain quiet but started clapping when Crowley came to her husbands defense.
What a crock that was and Romney after the biased for the most part crowd, the really mostly stupid questions like how are you different from Bush and then Crowley tag teaming Romney then Romney did really well.
“On Soledad OBriens program on CNN this morning, Candy Crowley said she was simply trying to move the debate along when she sided with Obama on the Rose Garden speech. She said she did not think it a leap to interpret that the Rose Garden setting and occasion of Benghazi meant that the president, in his speech, was indeed referring to Benghazi when he spoke about no acts of terror She said both Romney and Obama looked at her in a way that indicated they, too, had wanted to move on to another topic.
Rep. Chaffetz, seated at the same roundtable with Crowley, then told Crowley to her face, albeit respectfully, that its not your place to serve as fact-checker at that particular moment, and added: I happen to believe your assessment was wrong.”
The false claims that it was an “American made” video that CAUSED the Muzzies to attack was too good a a chance for Hillary & Barack to kill two birds with one stone . . the 9/11 Benghazi Terrorist Attack explanations AND our Constitutional right to free speech. - What’s not to love?
Tide turning: New York Observer endorsed Obama in 2008; Now endorses Romney
Candy Crowley: I didnt backtrack on Libya in debate
From the Valley-girl School of Journalism...
NBC News correspondent Chuck Todd reported that the greatest complaint against Candy Crowley by other journalists was that she didn’t allow Romney and Obama to engage either other and often stopped debate to move on to other questions.
Thanks for posting this.
Rush is playing these bytes as we write...
Chaffetz landed on her desk with both feet....
While wearing his cleats...
Chuck Todd is a panzy opportunist who panders to his idols Matthews and Mr. Maddow.
His spin that you posted is typical to get a tingle from Chris and Olbermann-in-drag Maddow.
What a colossal harlot and liar!!!
Well she certainly STOPPED Romney from making rebuttal points, and encouraged Obama to do what he willed.
” What a colossal harlot and liar!!!”
It is well known that Americans don’t trust the MSM. I would say a large segment of our population just redressed the balance : )
