Skip to comments.CBS and MSNBC Journalists: Bidenís Libya Security Answer Could Mean Big Trouble for Obama
Posted on 10/12/2012 7:56:14 AM PDT by nhwingut
As the dust of Thursdays vice presidential debate settles, one of the storylines of Friday morning is Joe Bidens 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.

SloJoe Butt-In strikes again!
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.
Biden’s debate prep video found!
Thanks for posting. This gaffe will leave a mark.
BIDEN: Well, we werent 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.
Biden has been peeing in the punch bowl for years, now he pooped in the punch bowl.
Come on libs, get your cups and line up and get some.
When CBS and MSNBC state that a ‘rat has ****ed up, they REALLY ****ed up.
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.
Blatantly lied. Shocker!
Chairman Issa should put Smilin Joe under oath for his testimony regarding the Bengazi debacle.
He would still lie.
I guess I'll have to wait for Jay Carney to tell us what Joe really means...
The WH has been skipping intel breifings for months. However cluelessnes is no defense.
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).
One has to wonder when the LSM will stop trying to save BAMs 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.
He lied right off the starting block....
Yeah, I really dislike Colmes, he must have gotten beaten up alot on the playground.....at least I hope so. lol
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.
