Jay Carney 2013: No Transfer of Detainees Without Consulting Congress (Whoops)
BreitBart ^ | June -2-2014 | Thomas Rose

Posted on 06/02/2014 6:39:08 PM PDT by equalator

On June 21, 2013, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney unequivocally assured reporters at that day's White House Press Briefing that President Obama “would not make any decisions about transfer of any detainees without consulting Congress and without doing so in accordance with U.S. law."

Appearing on Sunday's edition of NBC's Meet the Press, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel claimed that President Obama's weekend decision to do precisely what his official spokesman promised the country he would never do was based upon the need for secrecy and that informing Congress of the highly contentious prisoner exchange would risk scuttling it.

How did Jay Carney get to be Obama's Spokesperson?

I bet he can suck one of these:

Consulting Congress in Jay and Barack’s minds means that they mentioned it in passing to Harry Reid.

They don’t recognize the authority of the people, as expressed through their representatives, assembled.

Carney didn’t say this, a right-wing blogger working for the Tea Party emulated his voice and said this < /Leftist media >

Uh, that statement is no longer operative.

Let’s face it; Congress is totally dysfunctional and has abdicated its responsibilities.

Granny from the Hillbillies was way better looking than Cankles.

I do love it when snake oil salesman Carney is caught in yet another lie. This whole administration is a joke.

Liars, liars, liars.

And they whined that “Bush lied”.

EVERYTHING Obama does is disingenuous.

Jay “Joseph Goebbels” Carney. And why would any sane person trust him?

I’ve met some of the sleazest reds in the country - Alinsky, Aptheker, Novack, heard Navasky, Porter (Hanoi boytoy), Fonda, Hayden, etc.

I would put Carney right up there with them. He’s earned it.

Since he no longer works at the White House his statement is no longer valid.

Carney-Barker could suck-start a B-52.

Just think of how this story could be covered if we actually had an honest press in this country.

I think he was a pretty terrible press sec, but it seems likely (to me) that given the timing he quit because of this. It’s one thing to be the PR guy for an incompetent bunch of twits. It’s quite another when your boss disrespects you enough to make a liar out of you.

Or, maybe he just wanted to spend more time on his wife.
