Obama: U.S. has good leads on who carried out Benghazi attacks 9:06am EST

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has some "very good leads" about who carried out the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans including the U.S. ambassador in September, President Barack Obama said in an interview broadcast on Sunday.

Obama told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the United States would carry out all of the recommendations put forward in an independent review of the September 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi in which Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed.

"We're not going to pretend that this was not a problem. This was a huge problem. And we're going to implement every single recommendation that's been put forward," Obama said in the interview, referring to security issues identified in the review.

"With respect to who carried it out, that's an ongoing investigation. The FBI has sent individuals to Libya repeatedly. We have some very good leads, but this is not something that I'm going to be at liberty to talk about right now," he said.

Does anyone find the obvious humor in this statement made, discussing the very subject and issue he then refuses to discuss?

The false choice paradox rules the methods of this lightweight bunch.

So carefully spun to continue the cover-up.

I have a pretty good dose of the flu right now, and at my age, and the way I feel, and looking at America ...

Hi, Lord ... what took you so long?

Don’t they already have someone in custody? The guy who “insulted the prophet of Islam.”

I’d bet some of them have associates who’s names appear in the Whitehouse visitor logs.

Gee I hope the FBI is sending in some of its crack gumshoes and Eric Holder is gearing up for a trial in US federal court and stockpiling millions for defense lawyers so the defendants can immediately lawyer up on the taxpayers dime after being read their Miranda rights.

If Obama had any cajones Seal Team 6 and other similar dark ops groups would be on the hunt for these murderers with shoot to kill orders and suspects would be subject to "enhanced" interrogation. Obama boasts how he got Bin Laden, but it was black ops and enhanced interrogation that made this possible, not the Fearless Fosdicks at the FBI and a bunch of lawyers at the DOJ.

Well, I certainly feel much safer and secure knowing that Obama is staying on top of this "problem"/

He was the trigger that triggered the triggermen that the traitors are trying to find.

Barry, Joe, Hillaryous and Susan are overseeing the case.

R.I.P. Doherty, Smith, Stevens, Woods. The chief instigator is in the custody of the Instigator-In-Chief

TREASON...in real-time, pre-meditated, continuous, ongoing (as in today)...

The real question is why the hell didn’t we do anything to prevent four Americans from being murdered.

It’s been almost three months since the attack on the CIA safe house ( there is no consulate in Benghazi listed at the state dept. ) and death of our ambassadors and our personnel murdered...

What a joke....

“Good leads” means we are negotiating the right price for information with the terrorists who pulled this off....

Well of course you do Barry. They're the same scumbags you supplied the weapons to.

I don't suppose that the group claiming responsibility on the night of the attack could be one of those good leads, could it?

“but this is not something that I’m going to be at liberty to talk about right now,” he said.”

But he just couldn’t wait to blurt out the details of bin Laden’s sudden demise, including the Special Forces unit involved. What, so he has patience now?

They have a good lead on who carried out the attack, I’ve got a better lead on who planned the attack.

I won’t mention their name but their initials are Hillary Clinton.

I don’t give a crap who carried out the attack. I want to know who gave the order to stand down. This is more of wag the dog, don’t look here look over there!

I hope they kill these guys but they could have done it 4 months ago while our guys were still alive.
