The U.S. hasn't confirmed an Al Qaeda-affliliated group's claim that it perpetrated the attack. "We certainly heard reports of people taking responsibility, making claims of responsibility for this terrorist attacks but we have not been able to thus far confirm those claims," Carney said.

SNIP

Carney said. "I wouldn't want to say anything that turned out not to be true."

Why not, Carney? It never stopped you before.

The White House is protecting and arming al Qaeda while
attacking the US Constitution and Americans.

The world is truly upside down.

We are leading so far from behind that we need GPS help just to know what behind is last and how many miles it’s ahead of America.

Anyone else notice that to the ignorant jug-eared moron every single thing in the world is a crisis requiring an immediate response from his perverted adminsitration EXCEPT legitimate crises?

“seeking clarity?” Hardly, they're seeking a way to stall on admitting to anything until they can find a scapegoat on which to blame (preferably a “right-wing, nut job, pro-Israel Christian to blame!)

I've had a long recognized answer to the phenomenon you mention on Obama's priorities.

Hire only gays and lesbians for foreign assignment by the state department inside risky countries. Send all militants sodas in containers greater than 12 ounces. Label all schools, hospitals, places of christian and Hindu worship inside Islamic Nations as Planned Parenthood Facilities, thus ensuring adequate security staff. Traffic all arms to Islamic Militant Groups only after they pass a psychological test and thorough background check(no more extensive than the president though).

That should reduce the crisis factor by around 75%.

You mean sorta like Benghazi ? except that no one fired back ? so maybe there are survivors ...

Sacajaweau ~:”Watch your back boys....your real enemy is your cic.”
I think your keyboard is sticking and really meant to say is : “your real enemy is on your six.”
But yeah , we understand ..
