White House: Obama and Biden
were never aware of requests
for more Benghazi security

Foreign Policy, by Josh Rogin

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/12/2012 11:35:59 AM

Vice President Joseph Biden speaks only for himself and President Barack Obama, and neither man was aware that U.S. officials in Libya had asked the State Department for more security before the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, a top White House official told The Cable. Biden has come under fire for saying at Thursday night's debate, "We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there." The Cable asked Deputy National Security Advisor for Communications Ben Rhodes whether Biden was speaking for the entire Obama administration,

Proof of the Uhhhbama's administrations disengagement and lack of leadership regarding ANYTHING not relating to the Wan's er-election.

If true(And I doubt it is) it is far far worse than lying about it.

So both the president and vice president have been totally out of touch with what's going on regarding the terrorist situation around the world?

and that he is among the most sophisticated consumers of intelligence on the planet.

Really? This is their defense for the horrifying lack of security in Benghazi????

Another example of a lack of executive experience in either of these Jokers (and I can now use that term literally!). No executive would EVER trot out such a lame excuse.

Unfortunately, most Americans sense this and will be completely underwhelmed by this latest example of incompetence from the most powerful leaders of the free world.

Maybe because they don't attend security briefings? Of course, I doubt it got out of the State Dept. in the first place. But, guess what, Obama (and media puppets) ... the State Dept. is part of YOUR administration. They represent your leadership.

Suck on that.

Precisely #4. When the CEO of a company is on vacation 11 months a year it`s kind of hard to know what`s going on below deck.

Obama/Biden declared war on America in 2009. They both expected a few casualties along the way, or as Barack states, `a few bumps in the road`.

Is it surprising that the country is spinning out of control? The President and the Vice-President didn't know that an AMERICAN EMBASSY was asking for protection on Sept 11 Anniversary...who does Clinton, the Secretary of State work for? I thought it was for the President... he makes the policy...so Hillary should have been on the horn with him ASAP! Just like in Fast and Furious, Holder was not aware that HIS department was allowing weapons to be smuggled into ANOTHER COUNTRY and he was not aware what HIS department was doing...do these Obamacrats really think the American people are that stupid??? Other than the 47% that don't give a flip???

Several times Biden bragged about what he didn't know, he didn't get what Ryan was saying.

Ryan missed a HUGE opportunity to point that out, each time.

"I believe you didn't know, Joe, and now the ambassador is dead, so how do you feel about not knowing?"

FTA - ""Our ambassador in Paris has a marine detachment guarding him, shouldn't we have a Marine detachment guarding our ambassador in Benghazi?," Ryan said."

"According to the U.S. Embassy Paris website, there is a Marine Security Guard Detachment in the embassy, but they are there primarily to protect classified information and are not part of the ambassador's personal security detail."

A distinction without a difference. I have been to the American Consulate in Paris. They damn sure do have Marine guards at the entrance gate and at the doors as well. If that is not security, I don't know what is.

Does anyone know why the news networks, and C-Span, no longer carry the Jay Carney Press briefings?

I saw a brief clip on Fox News earlier, where he was completely flummoxed on the Benghazi security question. Would be great to see it happen live, as we did when President Bush was in office.

So BHO and JB are gonna do the "We knew nothing polka". Did neither of them attend the briefings? If not where were they? Did anyone try to contact them with the needs?? Who tried? Something isn't rotten in Denmark but it stinks to high office in the WH.
So is Boehner going to have the fortitude to begin hearings on this? Any need for an impeachment??? Anybody...you better believe there is or at least some resignations. Even if it has to be done after the election and BHO wins.

The Al Kyda(?) guys are on the constant look out for a US out post without securety and will surely go after it and as in this case kill any and all associated with it.

May be this why BHO scooted off to Vegas to evade (in legal sense ) any thing to do with this White HOuse fiasco.

Had same reaction as #29 – to split these hairs any finer you would need some pretty complex nanotechnology.

Hint, Joe: The American people aren’t interested in your explanation as to why you are incompetent. Somehow 0-bama is sooooo savvy that he put the noose on Osama single-handedly, but doesn’t know when our embassies are being threatened by terrorists on the anniversary of 9/11? Then he compounds the problem by blaming a YouTube video for weeks, including in front of the world at the UN? We agree that you are stupid and incompetent, but how does that demonstrate you are better suited for the job?

Sorry…
AND FURTHERMORE, if your defense is that there was a communication breakdown within the Executive Branch that led to the murder of 4 US citizens on US soil, what are you proposing to do about it?

We are done with your excuses. Now, 30+ days later, we’re still wondering what the response from the US will be - other than jailing the maker of a YouTube video and threatening free speech. Not interested in “We’ll make sure they are brought to justice!” Let’s see it.

This is disingenuous and childish. "Nobody told me" is no defense. The buck stops at the top - or used to, before Obama. Obama inaugurated the "It was broken when I picked it up" excuse, which is equally childish. The president is responsible for a foreign policy that consciously and deliberately downplayed security in Benghazi. This was not some oversight, some tragic mistake resulting from a memo that lost its way. State was simply trying to carry out the misguided policy of the administration. Rather than owning up to their wrong-headed policy, Obama et al. are shoving anybody and everybody under the bus to protect their own hides. It would serve the White House right if all the career Federal bureaucrats began copying them on all memos and decisions in every department of the U.S. government, just to protect themselves from the "Nobody told us" excuse in the future.

Which begs the question

Is this administration so out of touch with its own state department?

Or

How does the administration monitor the activities being done under their authority?

or

Is this administratiom so disconnected from the actions of its agencies that a fifedom environment has been created.

or

The total incompetence of this administration now on open display is the norm action?

I realize that the White House has not except responsibilty for any government action by any agency since before 2008.

That is the Chicago Way

Hillary knew or should have known. She was trying to cover her own rear end and now she is going under the bus. It also shows why Obama should have been going to Intelligence meetings every day instead of lining up fundraisers, going to the gym every morning, listening to Valerie, and playing golf. He is lazy and not doing the job we are paying him to do. He's fired!

#40, I did that once or twice at a major Aerospace firm. It is very effective but one doesn't want to do it all the time. I had a particularly sticky problem that was getting stonewalled by my management. I replied and copied the president. The next day the problem was fixed and there were numerable people asking why they didn't have a chance to fix the problem before I copied the president. I ignored them.

Sometimes you have to notify the top before you get results. In this case with Obama and Biden, they are telling the world that they didn't know the security status on one of the worlds flaming and boiling hotspots!

A severe breakdown that only the President is responsible for. Libya, Syria, and Iran are where the Third World War may start and Obama went golfing and putzing around in Las Vegas instead of keeping himself informed!

After four years he doesn't know how to do that and for that we have to let him go.

That story is not believable. There had been as many as 12 previous incursions. To me, the real story is why officials in the State Dept and the "Intelligence Community" are not speaking out against the President and VP's claims. What are they scared of ? Congratulations to the two men that did speak up. But they are not getting support from their own or other agencies; This Administration is a cesspool of corruption, fraud, harassment, lies, lack of transparency, and you can keep on going. This is arguable the most vile Administration in History kept under wraps by the MSM. One only need look at the VP's debate decorum to see
what has crawled into the leadership of the u>S>

In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

Limbaugh assured his readers that “nothing is going to change” in terms of their ability to hear him every morning. “There was another POLITICO story that ran last night on this program,” Limbaugh began, referring to Dylan Byers‘ report. “Someday, I am looking forward to detailing all of this for you,” Limbaugh continued, but for now he said he “must use proper business restraint.”

Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who oversees the IRS, made the rounds of four Sunday morning TV talk shows (all but CBS’s Face the Nation) to promote President Obama’s latest “pivot” to the economy, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CNN’s Candy Crowley failed to take advantage of the opportunity to press him on the IRS scandal. NBC’s David Gregory squeezed a question in at the very end of their session, but then didn’t follow up on Lew’s insistence “there’s no evidence of any political involvement.” Gregory: “Mr. Secretary, I’ll leave it there.

Not a bit like the vigilante posses in the movies, the Rev. Al Sharpton’s posse will be out in 100 cities this weekend. But although the mainstream media’s not admitting it, Al’s is a posse that is already flagging before it starts. Missing from the the Rev. Sharpton’s planned “Justice for Trayvon” day, is the real spontaneity and consensus of the posses of yore. Rev. Sharpton’s planned weekend protests in 100 cities, relies on the mainstream media and politicians of the day fueling the fire of racial unrest.

The 60 million yuan (£6.4 million) Jibaozhai Museum, located in Jizhou, a city in the northern province of Hebei, opened in 2010 with its 12 exhibition halls packed with apparently unique cultural gems. But the museum’s collection, while extensive, appears ultimately to have been flawed. On Monday, the museum’s ticket offices were shut amid claims that many of the exhibits were in fact knock-offs which had been bought for between 100 yuan (£10.70) and 2,000 yuan (£215). The museum’s public humiliation began earlier this month when Ma Boyong, a Chinese writer,

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
