White House Responds to Release
of Real-Time Emails About
Benghazi Attack

ABC News, by Jake Tapper

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/24/2012 1:05:37 PM

The White House this morning attempted to down-play the significance of emails sent to top national security officials during the attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, one of which suggested a known terrorist group claimed credit for the attack in its immediate aftermath. As obtained by ABC News’ John Parkinson and posted last night, the emails seem to be ones sent by the State Department Operations Center to distribution lists and email accounts for the top national security officials at the State Department, Pentagon, the FBI,

Even Jimmy Carter didn`t stoop this low when the Iranian hostage rescue when awry in 1980. At least he had the guts to blame himself for the failure. Obama`s first an only thought was to lie - which he is still doing.

According to Hillary Clinton, all the facts need to be in before we will know what happened in Benghazi. This obviously is going to take a long time, perhaps months or even years. It is possible we will never know for certain exactly what happened or why. It is quite likely we will never know, if Ms. Hillary and company have anything to do with it.

Hillary is so right. Some of the Emails say nothing about a terrorist component in the debacle. For example this one: "Please note, we need milk in the break room. One percent would be preferable."

They lied, continued to lie and continue to lie and then didn't send military support. Got it. Now how about the fact that they haven't answered this attack with any action?
Our Amb. along with 3 other Americans were killed. We now know who did it. Where is our answer to this attack? I want the hounds of hell unleashed against the animals that are responsible.

If one reads Drudge, two weeks o there was as article which stated simply that Obie went to bed between the two waves of the attack.
This "consulate" was a house in front of 2 warehouses,filled, I'll just wager, with surface to air missiles we were attemtpting to convey to AlQaeda ...oops , I mean for "Syrian Rebels" to use.....
This is all lies so far, even the truths are lies.

Hey ABC, how about reporting the third email's actual text? Here it is (courtesy of Fox news):

"The third email came at 67 p.m. ET and was sent to a different email list but still includes the White House Situation Room address and a subject line of “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack (SBU) Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli,"

Pretty hard to square that with “we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack" (Jay Carney)

Had this been a Republican administration, it would be plastered over every Front page for days !!!!

The public is seeing where the MSM is actually at these days, and they are really going to have a lot to account for after the election, when they try to do the opposite of what they are doing now to a new Republican Administration.

Based upon her proud, lengthy narrative before the House Oversight Committee hearing on Benghazi a few weeks ago, when she described that she was on the line with sources in Libya throughout the entire attack in "real time", one wonders if Charlene dropped the ball. And perhaps with good cause.

She was the one who was the final determiner of security assets, the one who turned a deaf ear to the pleas of regional security director Erik Nordstrom and Lt. Col. Andy Wood that the trained security personnel stay in place rather than being withdrawn in August. Those personnel were withdrawn. Four Americans died.

Will this whole mess work its way back to feckless State Department operative-for-life Charlene Lamb and her equally inept bureaucrat boss Patrick Kennedy?

People have withheld information for less cause...

#16 is about Charlene Lamb. Those who read it will understand that. And those of us who watched the gavel-to-gavel coverage of that hearing will understand the plausibility of the theory advanced.

More from Pat Buchanan:

Could Donilon or Hillary have been in the dark about what Rice was going to say? Could they have still been in the dark about what had happened five days before in Benghazi, when Hillary's own deputy Charlene Lamb had followed the terrorist attack in near real time?

Hillary and the entire Obama national security team are in that famous photo with Obama watching Seal Team Six in Abbottabad when Osama bin Laden was taken down.

Was the National Security Council alerted by Lamb when she was observing the attack in near real time? Did the NSC also observe?

Was the President told by the NSC that we were getting real-time intel and video from Benghazi, and would he like to see?

Honestly, I want to know what are the Republicans going to do about this? I don't hear much outrage coming from Congress, only a few. This keeps percolating but not much happens. Boehner has NO backbone.

Wait, are we talking about Benghazi Barry? The same person who sings me-me-me about everything, except when it's "not his fault." Pick a side Hussein. Are you going to say your regime was on top of things or admit they weren't, in the face of e-mail evidence, never mind explicit statements from the Middle East, which made it clear you were lying.

An appraisal from a friend. I think he is right on the mark.
---------------------------------------------
Sometimes it is easy to forget that Obama is trying to appeal to the least informed people
in our nation. For many years he has been saying untruthful things that the media will never dispute, and Obama supporters will assume it is true since it is never contradicted.
In the debates Obama is trying to energize his base. He knows that people like us will never vote for him, and for that reason, he does not care if we know he is lying.

I think what we have here is a breakdown in communication. It depends on how one defines "Intelligence community". You see, there are actually *two* intelligence communities in Washington right now - one at Langley, the other in the White House Political Situation room. Don't confuse the intelligence of one with the intelligence of the other.

They know they lied, they have insulted the American people with their bald faced lie, they know they got caught lying, and yet they still won't "'fess up".

The longer they play the American people like this, the worse it gets for Obama and the demonrats, so keep on lying to our face.

There is no way you can walk this back, no way to blame anyone else, no way to keep the media in your back pocket continuing to cover your sorry behinds...

The only thing left is to tell the truth, and hope you can get some sympathy. This is unbecoming of a president.

If you had any honor or integrity, you would resign for lying to the people. The other lies could be covered up, but you have told so many lies to cover up the lies, its just better to confess that you lied and tell the truth.

The One would not lie--very unmessiah-like....

Being the suspicious sort I am, and believing that hussein wants the Muslim Brotherhood to be in control of Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, etc. (treason IMO), what are the chances that it was no accident that no aid was sent to our personnel? Was the ambassador onto something that would have embarrassed the regime? Is it a relief to some people that the ambassador it dead?

Obama has ALWAYS said the Buck stops with him. But have you ever noticed, the Buck never stops with him... it's always someone else's fault or it doesn't matter.
Obama has NEVER taken responsibility for ANYTHING, EVER.
When was the last time your ever heard him say he screwed up, made a mistake or apologized? NEVER!
Words words words keep coming out of his mouth with no meaning.
Why? He is a no-man, an empty suit, an empty chair with an ego so inflated he can't bring himself to admit to making mistakes or being wrong, so he can't bring himself to apologize anything.

He actually believes he's the president. He would make the pimple on a real president's ass.

Obama knew the compound was under attack.
Because real time video was being transmitted to DC.
Obama knew members of the mission
were unaccounted for.
So what did he do ?
He donned his nightgown and fluffy slippers and toddled off to bed.
Cold blooded and derelict doesn't begin to describe this bum.
When the daughter of an employee
went missing, Mitt Romney organized
the search operation.
Romney will not be asleep when the nation is attacked.
Don't forget that Obama also slept through the underwear bombing attempt on Christmas Day , 2009.
" White House spokesman Bill Burton said Friday that Obama, on vacation in Hawaii,
was informed of the incident about three hours after the plane landed. "

Posted By: abuela10- 3/25/2014 9:13:32 AM     Post Reply
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.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. 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

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."

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.

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 cover of Friday´s edition of Rolling Stone magazine featuring Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The cover of Rolling Stone magazine has most often been the domain of musicians, actors, comedians, and the occasional politician. But this week, the periodical has raised eyebrows by letting Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev grace the famous front. The issue, which hits newsstands Friday, features an picture of an unsmiling Tsarnaev above the bolded legend "The Bomber." The subhead promises to reveal "[h]ow a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster."

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,

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
