Posted on 05/03/2014 6:16:06 PM PDT by Olog-hai
White House spokesman Jay Carney on Thursday continued to blame Republicans for trying to politicize Benghazi, repeating the claim that the newly declassified e-mail sent by Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes on Sept. 14, 2012 had nothing to do with the attacks on the U.S. consulate.
When Darrell Issa gets up and says what he said today, I dont know, you guys be the judge, Carney said in response to a reporter challenging Carneys assertion that the congressional investigation into the Benghazi attacks was politically motivated.

“Tragedy” —Something bad happens, and then there is NO blame at all.
Dude, “We should have tried!” Then a scandal like this wouldn’t have to be “politicized”. Right Candy? Show ‘em Candy!
Yes, incompetence and lying to cover it up is now a “tragedy”.
Was Watergate a Tragedy? I guess not, nobody died.
Just depends on how high up they will go...
He has a point. Politicizing a tragedy is patented by Democrats, so Republicans would be infringing on their patents.
It was not a tragedy.
Benghazi was a treasonous atrocity.
What a loathsome, pusillanimous, little toad.
Mr. Carney needs a mirror.
Yes publicize it! Make it public! Open it up for the world to see! Publicize it on every media available and get the truth out!
Is not politicizing Benghazi. It's just truth.
Carney is such an idiot, he actually makes me miss Baghdad Bob Gibbs..Hey Carney, Benghazi wasn’t a “tragedy” a tragedy is when someone is killed in a car accident, what Benghazi was was cold blooded murder..and the White House knew it was coming and did NOTHING to protect them..this was all an effort to do the Blind Sheikh for Stevens swap which failed, the White House let these men die
The tragic part of this is that the administration sacrificed Service Personnel to avoid political damage.
The tragedy is that 4 Americans were sent to their deaths for political expedience-to hide catastrophically poor security decisions by POTUS and the Sec. of State.
Doesn’t look like it’s been avoided.
That's the Dems playbook. Make one up -- Matthew Shepard, Trayvon Martin, Tawana Brawley, Mumia Abu Jamal, ...
Not just that. There is something more that we don't know about...yet.
Was the CIA in Libya busy running arms to Syria? Oh, yeah. Obvious from the outset. But that wouldn't deserve a full-dress cover-up. Two words would defuse such a revelation: Iran-Contra.
There...was...something...else...going...on. Something that would blow the lid off this entire corrupt administration.
Carney is an evil Liar.
“The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid dens of crime that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice.”
-C.S. Lewis, Screwtape Letters, preface Tell a Friend
“a full-dress cover-up”
Yes, why not just admit we were training to arm the rebels? It was a serious policy option, even proposed by McCain.
Obama lied so directly about this you would like a real journalist would be curios. Maybe journalist are extinct.
” training to arm the rebels?”
I meant trying to arm the rebels.
Not exactly. We are trying to politicize cowardice and incompetence. We are supposed to politicize those.
Ergo, running guns to Syria did not warrant a full-blown cover-up.
Meaning there was something else...
I watched this. Carney Barker said the reporter should ask Issa about political motivation. The correct response would have been for the reporter to say, "I'm not talking to Darrell Issa, I'm talking to YOU, because YOU are the one who brought up political motivation. Do you believe it? Yes or no?"
I know, I know, wishful thinking.
Hillary, BO, Jarrett and Holder are all democrats. Republicans had nothing to do with what happened that night. All the people in charge are dems.
freaken Baghdad Bob is what Carney is.
Like obammy, carney is a f-ing LIAR.
Never let a good crisis go to waste. I have no problem making Benghazi political. It is political. And let’s bring Valerie into the picture, too. Let the American people know who’s really running the country.
Valerie Jarrett Gave Benghazi Stand-Down Order
Carney on Benghazi: Republicans Trying to Politicize a Tragedy
Actually, no, they are trying to find who is responsible for it.
Jay Carney.. America’s primary example of $HIT for BRAINS.
Yo Spokesweasel, I trust the Republicans are developing evidence to throw the incompetent, lying, traitorous fraud out of the White House and so end his destruction of the greatest nation in the history of the world, and right the ship of state.
