CBS and MSNBC Journalists: Bidenís Libya Security Answer Could Mean Big Trouble for Obama
The Blaze ^ | 10/12/2012 | Jonathon M. Seidl

Posted on 10/12/2012 7:56:14 AM PDT by nhwingut

As the dust of Thursday’s vice presidential debate settles, one of the storylines of Friday morning is Joe Biden’s bold statement that the administration was not told that officials in Libya requested more security before an attack that led to the death of several Americans, including our ambassador. The fact-checkers have found that to be patently false. And now, even the mainstream media is predicting it could be a problem.

Chairman Issa should put Smilin’ Joe under oath for his testimony regarding the Bengazi debacle. I’m sure the intelligence agencies are not amused by the lie he told last night, trying to cover for Obummer’s failure.

Thanks for posting. This gaffe will leave a mark.

BIDEN: “Well, we weren’t told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security again. And by the way, at the time we were told exactly – we said exactly what the intelligence community told us that they knew. That was the assessment. And as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view.”

RYAN: “There were requests for more security.”

THE FACTS: Ryan is right, judging by testimony from Obama administration officials at the hearing a day earlier.

Charlene R. Lamb, a deputy assistant secretary for diplomatic security, told lawmakers she refused requests for more security in Benghazi, saying the department wanted to train Libyans to protect the consulate. “Yes, sir, I said personally I would not support it,” she said.

Simple Joe made a HUGE mistake by throwing the Intelligence community under the bus to save Barack Hussein Obama’s (mmm mmm mmm) hide. They are NOT amused.

Alan Colmes blamed Benghazi on the Republicans not funding security. The appropriation was made in 2009. He succesfully diverted my wanting the punch Joe Biden in the teeth to beating the bleep out of Colmes.

Holy crap! MSNBC saying Joe blew it..that’s REALLY amazing. It’s hard to know what to make of this.

I guess Joe didn’t know the State Dept said more help was requested..

According to that braying jackass Libya (600,000+sq. miles) is SMALLER than Syria (72,000+ sq. miles).

Jackass.

One has to wonder when the LSM will stop trying to save BAM’s butt, and begin to try to save their own! As their credibility is in tatters. Nowadays only the Kool-Aid drinkers believe anything they report.

I thought the exact same thing during the debate - Syria is much smaller geographically than Libya. I wish Ryan would have called him out on it.
