Posted on 10/27/2012 1:07:27 PM PDT by edpc
The White House on Saturday flatly denied that President Barack Obama withheld requests for help from the besieged American compound in Benghazi, Libya, as it came under on attack by suspected terrorists on September 11th.
"Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.

good point, obama and Biden both said they did not know about this attack and now say they did not deny help, which is it?
Was he sleeping or did he watch the attack live time and did he go to bed during the attack?
IT;S FRIGGING THAT SIMPLE TO ASK AND NOTHING FORM A MEDIA IN FULL BLOWN COVER UP.
This is worse than watergate and the media are doing nothing
More Clintonion Parsing.
Perhaps Obama and his minions didn’t deny requests for assistance coming in from Benghazi on 9/11/12.
If so, Obama just ignored them.
See the excellent post by Freeper Travis McGee explaining the appplicable protocol and chain of command in this type of situation:
It all comes back to Obama.
Hey Obama aid and our puke American media...show us the proof!! We don’t believe you lying scumbags!!
Time for Obama and his entire administration to be put under oath!!
Shame on all you posters. Nobody fights for things American more than President Obama.
Mere days ago Obama’s campaign press secretary went public with this quote: “President Obama is the only candidate in this race who is going to continue to fight for Big Bird & Elmo.”
Obama allowed the terrorists to capture, torture, and kill our people in Libya. After the Al Qaeda attack was successfully executed, Obama invitied the terrorists into our soveriegn territory, giving them defacto free reign access in and around our embassy, and granting them access to our secret documents and computers. In addition, Obama
gave the terrorists adaqute time to raise the Al Qaeda flag over our embassy building.
Obama did not offer military support during the attack.
A statement made by someone who was not in the loop at the time, so it’s worthless.
It’s a common tactic, find someone in the organization who was not involved, feed them a flat statement, and they go out and tell it to the press, oblivious to the lie
This is insane. It’s like these people write this stuff, and then don’t expect people to actually read what they wrote (just read the headline).
In the article posted here, it’s stated, “”Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.”
Now, in that same article it’s stated, “On Friday, Obama himself forcefully denied deliberately misleading Americans about the attack in Benghazi, which claimed the lives of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens”, which points to this article to “prove” the claim “Obama himself forcefully denied...”: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/obama-denies-misleading-benghazi-vows-capture-plotters-184349903—election.html;_ylt=AlhmPFDhNBf5g4HVeCWl_FjNt.d_;_ylu=X3oDMTFkNWJ1MDBuBG1pdANCbG9nIEJvZHkEcG9zAzMEc2VjA01lZGlhQmxvZ0JvZHlBc3NlbWJseQ—;_ylg=X3oDMTM1aDZhYmtiBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDNTZkODY4YjMtZWY4MS0zOTI2LThhNmMtZWE1YTM2NzJmMjcwBHBzdGNhdANwb2xpdGljc3x0aGV0aWNrZXQEcHQDc3RvcnlwYWdl;_ylv=3
In THAT article it’s reported, “Obama was not asked about, and did not bring up, a report by Fox News Channel that American officials repeatedly asked for military help during the assault but were rebuffed by CIA higher-ups.”
So which is it? He “denies denying requests for help in Benghazi” OR, he was “never asked about it”?
It’s incredible. I’ve absolutely lost all hope for unbaised reporting from these people. They write stuff, and just take the latest story as “fact” without bothering to check what they PREVIOUSLY REPORTED on the matter, which clearly shows that either:
A. The president was never “asked about, and did not bring up, a report by Fox News Channel that American officials repeatedly asked for military help during the assault but were rebuffed by CIA higher-ups.”
B. He WAS asked (by his “aide”) and the aide reports now that Obama says he did not deny requests for help.
IOW: He can’t have “not been asked” about it AND still apparently deny not providing help!!!!!! It makes no SENSE to say that.
But this is the leftist media after all. “sense” comes secondary when you’re trying to help your guy avoid the biggest scandal to hit his presidency on the eve of a national election. I guess.
“Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.
Correct me if I am wrong, but did not Obama say at one time, that he wasn’t aware of any requests for help? This statement by the aide, makes it clear, he did in fact know about them. If he did not know, how could he “not” deny them.
To quote “Deep Throat” to Bob Woodward in “All The President’s Men”
” Of course he knew! They all knew, you think stuff like this just happens without anyone knowing about it!”??
“Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi,”
Obama denied to hear requests.
I’d have to go with #2. Lying is a way of everyday life for Obama and his henchmen...
The President is a spineless midget of a man.
I want to know more about the lasing of an enemy mortar site, though.. If firing upon them was ignored or orders given not to do so.
Hmmmm..we need some military guys to look at this statement. I wonder what the official request would have been? It probably isn’t called ‘a request for assistance’....it is probably called something else. Permission to engage was denied. Notice that his stand down order was not denied.
These people need to be put under oath...no one should believe anything they send out their minions to say.
so what aide did you give them since you didn’t deny them any aid?
doesn’t even fit with pannettas BS lie
THEY DIDN’T DENY ANY HELP BECAUSE THEY DID NOT KNOW! LOL
“The White House ... flatly denied that President Barack Obama withheld requests for help from the besieged American compound in Benghazi .....”
This is a very weasely statement and is answering a question no one asked. No one is accusing the Whitehouse of “withholding requests for help.” What does that mean? The White House was not requesting help so they could not withold those requests.
The question is:
1. Did the White House receive requests for help from the consulate in Benghazi? (We pretty much know they did.)
And the follow up questions (after we get a yes to the first question) are:
2. Did the White House DENY any help to those at the consulate who requested help?
3. Did the White House IGNORE the requests for help?
4. Was anyone even there to receive the requests for help?
No one asked the White House this question:
Did the White House WITHHOLD the requests for help?
