White House says emails were not about Benghazi
Miami Herald ^ | April 30, 2014 | By Lindsay Wise

Posted on 04/30/2014 1:20:03 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The White House went on the defensive Wednesday to explain newly released emails that appear to show the administration drafted talking points to blame the fatal attack in Benghazi, Libya, on a spontaneous protest rather than a coordinated assault planned by al Qaida-linked Islamist militants.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a briefing at the White House that the emails released on Tuesday by a conservative watchdog group weren’t about Benghazi specifically, but instead referred to a different set of talking points that addressed unrest across the region.

“The email and the talking points were not about Benghazi they were about the general situation in the Muslim world,” Carney said.

One lie leads to another lie.

When Carney has to give an account at the end of this life for his lies, it will be quite a session.

AP, UPI, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, et,al.....Are run by old white men who must not say anything in public or private about the president which might critical and by default, RACIST.

They could lose their networks and ownership. Jay Carnie could claim anything and it would be accepted as fact, no matter how insane or contrary to reality it may be.

I would imagine that this asshat has to close his eyes to shave because he can’t stand looking at himself in the mirror.

And of course, this transparent lie will be cited as the definitive rebuttal by the Partisan Media Shills.

Thanks Oldeconomybuyer.

The rule for this administration:

For every problem, there is a lie.

And, for every lie, there is a complaisant media that will repeat it, unquestioningly.

““The email and the talking points were not about Benghazi they were about the general situation in the Muslim world,” Carney said.”

“When I said ‘black people’ I was referring to people without empathy or compassion. I most certainly was not referring to African Americans. And why would I like Magic Johnson, he was a Laker and I'm the owner of the Clippers”, Spencer said.

Wonderful investigative reporter Lara Logan got set up on Benghazi and they kicked her off the air (60 minutes) because she apparently went a bridge too far - trusting a plausible eye witness.

Now Sharyl may have been snookered by the deceitful, mendacious and manipulative White House ba$turds.

Drat! (Hope not)

????

The Administration is using he old (1 Lie + 1 Lie = Truth) formula. Anyone who spends more than 2 seconds thinking this newest lie might be true is insane.

They don’t even try to cover their lies any more.

They just flagrantly commit them — one after another.

Who is going to challenge them? Republicans? Media?

the President signaled his priorities to the White House staff by flying to that campaign event early the next morning. Clearly the WH was in full campaign mode (like every day).

The liberals again are relying on the ignorance and stupidity of the public. Only a fool would believe this dishonest explanation.
