Psaki Runs from Question About ‘Vanity Fair’ Benghazi Article

Washington Free Beacon Staff

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was asked by a reporter to reconcile former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s famous Benghazi question with claims in a new Vanity Fair article Tuesday in a State Department press conference.

Psaki’s response was a predictable State Department refrain, stating “this has been all addressed” by the Accountability Review Board before quickly moving on:

REPORTER: And when Secretary Clinton famously asked about Benghazi, “was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they would go kill some Americans,” this article clearly suggests that not the case and that the consulate was under careful observation for some time. Can you comment on that and maybe about outsourcing security to other host nations?

JEN PSAKI: This has all been addressed -

MATTHEW LEE: Maybe you should put that quote in context.

........

Vanity Fair‘s Fred Burton and Samuel M. Katz write the participants in the Benghazi attack seemed extremely familiar with the compound and likely received detailed intelligence, suggesting immediately their motivation was not spontaneous or the subsequent attack unplanned:.......

It was all addressed in the report where we didn’t ask anybody questions that were involved. OK. Hillary’s going to be president, we don’t have to show you anything else.

The Accountability Review Board was:
hand selected by Clinton
the watered down findings were nothing but watered down excuses
they didn't personally interview all the key witnesses
3 witnesses that Congressional Committee saw on may 8, 2013 said that the report was "incomplete"

there are 30 witnesses (State Dept./CIA/Civilians/etc.) at Benghazi that still haven't been heard from !!

A peek at Psaki’s wedding

5/10/10

If you wanted to find anyone from the White House press shop on Saturday night, they were likely in Ridge Maryland, attending White House deputy communications director Jen Psaki’s wedding.

Psaki wed her longtime boyfriend Gregory Mecher, chief of staff for Rep. Steve Driehaus, at Woodlawn Farm.

Guests included: White House press secretary Robert Gibbs and wife Mary Catherine Gibbs, communications director Dan Pfeiffer and wife Sarah Feinberg, deputy press secretary Bill Burton and wife Laura Capps Burton, spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield, press secretary to the first lady Katie McCormick Lelyveld, spokesman Tommy Vietor, chief speechwriter Jon Favreau, deputy press secretary Josh Earnest, assistant press secretary Nick Shapiro, spokesman Ben LaBolt and personal assistant to the president, Katie Johnson.

Suspended MSNBC anchor David Shuster and ABC’s Jake Tapper also witnessed the vows. Rep. Driehaus and Adrienne Elrod, chief of staff to Rep. Loretta Sanchez and Psaki’s close friend, were there, too.

Love, dedication and Rahm Emanuel helped Jen Psaki and Gregory Mecher get down the aisle.

Psaki was six weeks into a new communications gig with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Rahm Emanuel, then chairman of the DCCC, was traveling to Philadelphia to speak at an event where she would be handling the media.

As Psaki, a Luddite, scrambled to set up a Web video for Emanuel, a call came on her cellphone — the chairman’s driver was lost and needed directions.

“And I have no sense of direction. I didn’t know even where we were, but I was like ‘Oh, I think you take a left,’ “ recalls Psaki, now 31.

Mecher, a deputy finance director at the DCCC who regularly traveled in “a very small entourage” with Emanuel, was on the other end of the line that January 2006 day, taking instructions from Psaki that led them even further afield. Finally they reached the event site, and once Mecher moved on from thinking, “Why did she get us lost?” he thought: “She’s cute.”

Since then, the better part of her waking hours has revolved around Obama and his political pursuits. Jen had previously worked for Senator John Kerry’s failed bid for the presidency, caught the bug for such madness, and wanted another go at it. A rising star in the Democratic party, Obama had the back story and principles that appealed to her. People she knew from her Kerry days, including Robert Gibbs, who would go on to become White House press secretary, and Burton, were now working for the senator from Illinois. They had some conversations, and she signed on.

(snip)

Sounds good, Jen thought, and off she went. Living in ignoble conditions and putting in godless hours, she worked for the Iowa Democratic Party, then in the press office of the Kerry campaign, first in Des Moines, then Washington, D.C. Among other duties, she was spokeswoman for the adult children of Kerry, his wife, Theresa Heinz and John Edwards.

They seem to have left out the part where Hillary asked, “What difference does it make?” Actually, what she thought was,

“What difference does it make, since it’s not a Republican scandal?”

It only works because the media are complicit int he treachery. There is no honesty left in what is euphemistically called ‘journalism’.
