Mika's Latest Benghazi Excuse: There Are Some Things Obama Admin Can't Talk About
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 10/19/2012 8:19:19 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

So THAT'S why President Obama and his spox have seemed so shifty on the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans including the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. There really is a perfectly good explanation for everything. It's just that--darn it!--state secrecy prevents the prez from telling us. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Such was the sorry excuse that Mika Brzezinski suggested on today's Morning Jones. When Josh Green of Bloomberg recommended that President Obama get his story in order before Monday's debate, Mika mysteriously said: "there may be some parts of this which they can't talk about, which makes it a very difficult situation."

Obama has perfectly good explanation on Benghazi attacks. But sadly, state secrecy prevents him from telling us. Yeah, right. Ping to Today show list.

He can talk about it on Comedy Central but he can’t in the debate. Deep man.

“there may be some parts of this which they can’t talk about, which makes it a very difficult situation.”

You mean like birth certificate, several social security cards, College records, Father and mother...

The truth is that 100s of American watchstanders in a half-dozen locations were listening to the attack in live time, as it happened, from the consulate itself.

This was not an INTEL failure, it was a LEADERSHIP failure. Only Obama could order a rescue mission (One hour from southern Italy) but he didn't. Instead, he came up with the "video" lie as an excuse for dead Americans. He preferred a few dead Americans in a "contained" crisis, than risk a short-fuse rescue mission.

Is it me, or does Joe resemble the "Deliverance Kid"?

This begs the question for the obama shills: ‘Is it that you’re that stupid, or you think we’re stupid?’

They can not talk about the weapons they gave the terrorist to kill everyone in Libya. The weapons they were unable to get back.

Wouldn’t be “optimal”.

I hope that Obama makes an attempt Monday to make this case.

It will allow Romney to point out that it is certainly appropriate for any administration to hold back information in certain sensitive situations.

However, it is not ok for an administration to outright lie in the process about the cause (i.e., the video).

This approach is not going to work.

And there, I believe is the answer. Even this admin cannot be this incompetent. The ambassador was on a confidential mission to try and get back some of the weapons we handed out to bad guys. Fast and Furious Deux.

That is what I was thinking also. If Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi engaged in some half-baked plan to retrieve the weapons we gave to the Muslim Brotherhood minions, this is certainly something the 'Obama Admin can't talk about'...
This would be even less optimal than the '4 bumps in the road' that were left behind...

That would have been a perfect comeback from RINO Joe if he truly wanted to defend the party he claims to represent and it’s current nominee.
