Obama did not deny requests
for help in Benghazi: Aide

WASHINGTON - 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.
Please post source in site style. Staff has corrected.

Comments:
White House 'Aides'. You can smell the lies on their breath.
The weasel lawyer words. The CYA. The blame shifting.
The simple reality is that our heroes on the ground and our Ambassador in Benghazi were abandoned and betrayed. Help from the planes circling overhead was denied and now they are dead.
Discuss.

They never ordered that help be sent! That is the same as refusing to send help.

Impeach them for dereliction of duty! Try them for manslaughter! Hang them from the Washington Monument!

(Them is everyone who was in the 'situation room')

I do not understabd how and why the idiot prez can spout such drivel. He either has no memory or is a congenital liar. He must go back to wherever he came from without any perks. Check the WH thoroughly for stolen items, dems seem to have sticky fingers.

So, since Hillary has refused to roll over and the CIA warns not to accuse them of this utter incompetency, it appears that Leon Panetta will be Obama's fall guy.
.... After all, we all KNOW the president would never have flown to Las Vegas if he had known what was going on .... right?

Panetta said he and top military commanders had judged it too dangerous to send troops to the eastern Libyan city without a clearer picture of events on the ground.

That certainly sounds like a denial of help to me!

Yep. Clintonian lawyerspeak. And note:

The key thing is that Obama, Biden, and Panetta sat there, receiving information, and said, "geeze, let's not let this affect our elections chances"

In other words, they POLITICIZED the events/response as they unfolded.

Then, in the usual Obama projection impulse, he accused Republicans of politicizing.

Reminds me of the Nazi response to D-Day. No one wanted to wake Hitler to ask permission to move troops to Normandy.

In this case, Obama was afraid to wake Valarie Jerrett and ask permission to send help to Benghazi.

The problem for the MSM and their media blackout is that they cannot even deny the charges emanating from the blogosphere and Fox since the issue does not exist.

Bottom line is State Dept, CIA and DOD all report to and work for the President and none of these four were willing to render support to Americans in peril.

Everybody knows the decision not to help was purely political. barry wasn't interested in anything other than his re-election & I'm certain the only "expert" advise he received was from jarrett & axelgrease.

I think this is probably an accurate statement. Neither BHO nor any one in the administration denied the request for assistance. It was ValJar and she does not hold an official office. Think BJ Clinton and the definition of 'is'.

And this harmonious consensus with the military commanders is why they are being fired at the rate of 2 a day? This is Zippy's Saturday Night Massacre. He will keep getting rid of military officers until he finds some that will support his lies. I pray those officers don't exist, but Wesley Clark and P.J. Crowley are living proof spineless weasels are among our uniformed heroes.

Parse it.

"The White House on Saturday flatly denied that President Barack Obama withheld requests for help..."

What does this mean?

BO was in no position to "withhold requests."

The requests were not his initiative. They came from Libya.

I HATE it when people lie like this, distorting the language.

I heard Chris Wallace say this morning that obama has now said that he issued the order that the Consulate be given the assistance that they needed. If true, then someone might be thrown under the bus for disobeying the little great one's order. Of course, we know it's not true and no such order was issued. The liars are busy going through files to see who they can throw under the bus and force to keep quiet about the truth. I hope they pick wrong and the person they fire sings like a bird. I'm sure they're hoping they can drag this out until after the election. They're in panic mode and not thinking straight--not sure their brains do that anyway. The lies will catch up to them and the buck should stop at the great little "I am the President" one. Yeah, in the words of John McCain, that one.

Bet that they gave Zero too much crap about letting Americans die, so he fired them.

"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.

That is not technically a lie if Mr. Vietor has personal knowledge that Obama is not legitimately "the president" and the denial of requests was made while our Pretender-in-Chief was outside of the White House.

The Benghazi debacle has three parts: how we neglected security while al-Qaeda was building a presence in Libya; whether the administration tried to mislead the public as to the nature of the attack; and now whether the administration denied pleas for help from operatives on the ground at the consulate. Now, presumably at the behest of Gen. David Petraeus — who has been remarkably tight-lipped and not defended his agency against White House accusations that senior officials’ misstatements were the fault of the CIA — the CIA threw the hot potato right back in the politicians’ laps.

Mitt Romney has opened up a clear lead over Barack Obama in their presidential race. That owes a great deal to the candidates’ debate performances, of course. But something else is going on, too. In recent days, Obama’s approval rating has taken a perceptible hit. Via the Weekly Standard, we see that in the Rasmussen survey, only 47% approve of Obama’s job performance, while 52% disapprove. There are two plausible explanations for Obama’s current slide: voters may be disgusted by the mean, petty campaigning he is running, or they may disapprove of his handling of the Benghazi crisis. Or both.

Reports indicate two drones and an AC-130 gunship were in the area when Benghazi was attacked, yet their resources were not used. This runs completely against the current explanation coming out of the White House, which is that Obama did everything he could once he learned of the attack. You'll remember that in the second presidential debate, Obama said that as "soon as I was aware the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team." The not-so-subtle intimation is that Obama was stepping up to the protect the U.S. personnel who were in Libya.

Rodriguez is the commander of U.S. Army Forces Command and has served in a “variety of key leadership roles on the battlefield,” Panetta said.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
