White House throws Hillary under the 2012 bus

The White House is throwing Hillary Clinton under the 2012 election bus.
Top officials have already claimed the nations intelligence agencies did not alert the White House to the growing danger facing the State Departments facility in Benghazi, Libya, which was destroyed Sept. 11 by a jihadi attack on the 11th anniversary of the atrocities in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
The claim was repeated Oct. 11 by Vice President Joe Biden during the vice presidential debate in Danville, Ky. We werent told they wanted more security, he announced.
Ben Rhodes, President Barack Obamas deputy national security adviser for communications, extended the claim Oct. 11 by telling told Foreign Policy magazine that neither Biden nor President Barack Obama knew of the growing danger.
Biden speaks only for himself and the president and neither of them knew about the requests at the time, Rhodes said, according to Foreign policy.
These kinds of issues are handling in the State Department by security officials, White House spokesman Jay Carney said during Fridays press briefing.
Security matters are decided at the State Department, he said, amid tough questioning from Fox News Channels Ed Henry.
The White Houses statements leaves Hillary Clinton on the hook, because she runs the Department of State.
The widening breach between Clinton and the team of Obama and Biden comes as the president is being outpolled by Gov. Mitt Romney.

Hillary's used to covering for liars... She's in luck - the New York Times won't notice....
Now there’s a halloween theme picture.
Watch for an avalanche of CYA memos come a flying from Chicago-on-the-Potomac.
If what Joey Grinboor claims is true, why has Zer0 not fired Hitlery yet????
Hope he don't stain anything
They’re throwing this woman under the bus, Charlene Lamb, the deputy secretary of state for diplomatic security for U.S. embassies.
Ms Lamb is being led to the slaughter by Hillary.
If the jackass was out on the links or talking smack with radio or TV personalities instead of being at the intelligence briefings, then its not her fault he didn’t know. So he’s either incompetent and negligent, or he’s a flat out liar who will throw anyone under the bus like a toddler (”Who drew on the wall?” “Not me!!!”). The only other possibility is that she is running the state department completely independent of the executive office, which again says he’s incompetent, because delegation of duties does not equal dereliction of duties. No matter how you slice it, he is responsible for the deaths, and he is incapable of performing the requisite duties of POTUS.
Chicago vs. Arkansas political slugfest! Pass the corn.
Hmmm. Just like Fast ans Furious.
Exactly. I believe Obama & Jarrett planned the whole thing, in conjunction with the Muslim Brotherhood. What they were trying to accomplish, I don't know. I also don't know whether the plan went the way it was supposed to, or whether it blew up in their faces, but I feel sure they were involved. The media chorus about the youtube video was just too well planned and happened to quickly for me to believe they weren't fed info from the WH in advance. I'm not saying the media knew all the details upfront, but they were clearly led by the WH and very early on. I think that's one reason the media are pursuing the coverup now. They were played as patsies.
She [Lamb] was looking pretty pale and “ill” during the hearings the other day.
Intelligence sources said that the Obama administration internally labeled the attack terrorism from the first day in order to unlock and mobilize certain resources to respond, and that officials were looking for one specific suspect. The sources said the intelligence community knew by Sept. 12 that the militant Ansar al-Shariah and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb were likely behind the strike.
“In addition to the footage from the consulate cameras, the U.S. government is also poring over video taken from an overhead U.S. surveillance drone that arrived for the final hour of the night battle at the consulate compound and nearby annex.”
“She [Lamb] was looking pretty pale and ill during the hearings the other day.”
Yup. She knew the bus was coming for her.
She has already said she will not serve a second term if Obama is elected so she only has a month left on the job and this really means nothing.
obama can deny he knew all he wants. All that does is show he’s out of touch and playing too much golf and doing too much fund raising.
Hillary is screwed. Her employees testified under oath that State works very closely with the intelligence community.
Senior admin officials have found out it is virtually impossible to get a decision from POTUS.
SEC State, SEC DEF, Intel agencies, and Congressional leadership know this.
POTUS has been out of the loop for so long that Clinton and Panetta have made unilateral decisions that should have been reserved for POTUS.
I don't believe BO has formally delegated this decision authority for Constitutional reasons or sheer incompetence. Now that one of these decisions has gone bad, POTUS will eventually blame them by simply saying he was uninformed.
The entire administration is collapsing before our very eyes. This is a potentially a very dangerous situation.
:) Smiling on the outside, LMAO! on the inside!
What about Brennan and Donilon?
