White House hints that FOX News’ Benghazi reporting was ‘entirely false’
Washington Examiner ^ | December 20, 2012 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 12/20/2012 11:36:07 AM PST by theruleshavechanged

FOX News White House correspondent Ed Henry asked Carney if the four State Department officials that resigned yesterday were “taking the fall” for President Obama and Hillary Clinton even though they repeatedly said that the “buck” stopped with them.

“I’m not sure what you are suggesting, Carney replied.

“There were some individuals that did a lot of reporting that turned out to be entirely false, based on the paragraph I just read, Ed.” Carney added testily, ” The facts in the report are the facts.”

And they will get away with it. By far this is the most corrupt administration in history, with the full backing of Pravda USA. They all should be dropped into Taliban territory and let the Taliban do as they want with them.

There were a number of press conferences under Reagan concerning Iran/Contra. The next press conference about Benghazi will be the first.

Here are my three questions for Benghazi-Coward B. Hussein Obama:

1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?

2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?

3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT in your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?

Impeach! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 innocent people were fired, and the media were told to put all the blame on them, not on where it belongs: 0 and hillary.

“Attack Watch.org”?

I am so sick of the politburo type tactics of this cabal of clowns occupying the federal government.

And the White House media, with the rare exception of yesterday when they pressed the Clown in Chief on his demand for bigger government and higher taxes, have no testicles. They refuse to challenge the Joker.

I like how you put that ---- How very...Soviet...of them...

Somehow actual pictures and dozens of written requests and professionals (not dems/"dumbs") for the Dems only follow the party line and facts and logic are not involved. WOO to us if they control our government. Wait. They DO control our government and I'll lay you 1,000,000,000,000 to one that they will continue to do so or until such time as the Chinese or some other country takes over with another system of total suppression of human liberty.

And the dumb masses have foisted upon us another four years of a radical, lawless administration. I can’t begin to express the contempt I have for the electorate of this country.

Fox News did really push this story. Honestly, I think it was to try to save Romney’s sinking campaign.

Chris Stevens, the US ambassador killed in the Benghazi embassy attack was the most recent U.S. foreign service officer to be killed in the line of duty. Early on in the Benghazi narrative we were told that this was the first death in the line of duty since 1978. Which of course was the Jimmy Carter era, recently I’ve heard/read that it was 1988 ... the Reagan years. Can someone bring me up to date?

Interview all who watched on video.
Find out why they were included in the video viewing.
Find out what action they took.
what did they say to whom?
The person(s) they said something to is/are then asked what they did with the information - what action they took.
Let’s get a report on all that took place.
Do the same thing with all that were at the consulate.
Do they resign so they don’t have to testify regarding who and what occurred?
Cant hey avoid a murder investigation?

In 1979 Adolph Dubs, the US ambassador to Afghanistan, was kidnapped and killed. He was the last ambassador to be killed in the line of duty before Stevens this year in Libya. I don't know about 1988, but the bombing of the US embassy in Kenya killed 12 Americans. I wasn't able to find out how many of those were in the foreign service.

Hillary was one of those “taking a fall”. It caused a concussion or so it was told. But she didn’t take a fall politically, unfortunately.

Let's start with Eternal Vigilance and all those suckers who voted for him. Then let's throw in any others who also thought it more virtuous to vote for any of the "third parties" and how about those who refused to vote for Romney? They're all responsible for the mess we're in.

Say what you want about Romney but he's a damned sight better than Obama but too many on here refused to see that--we have the mentality of following the leader off the cliff here on FR. We're lacking the ability to think for ourselves. We're more concerned about the approval of others.

Only the POTUS had the authority to act!

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

There are three scandals here...

---------------------------------------------------------

Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.

The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.

ONE man had the authority to act that night.

ONE man deserted his post!

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say

0bama abandoned his post. 0bama Is A Deserter!

Because there's nothing really serious about a murdered ambassador, pathetic security for embassy personnel or ridiculous cover up stories. /s

Y O U... are most definitely at the wrong web site...

Romney's campaign did not fail...the obama campaign, bought, lied, and stole the election..and we will all suffer for the next four years...and just possibly America will never be able to heal and return to a powerful Nation.

Why is she letting her underlings take the fall for something that she was "responsible" for?
