White House: All questions
answered on Benghazi attack

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/11/2013 9:01:30 PM

The White House has heard enough about Benghazi. White House press secretary Jay Carney on Monday blasted Senate Republicans for threatening to block Defense Secretary-nominee Chuck Hagel and John Brennan, nominated to head the CIA, in a quest for more information about what President Obama did on the night that terrorists killed four Americans in the U.S. Consulate in Libya. “We have answered these questions,” Mr. Carney said. “The president found out about the attack in Benghazi in a meeting with his secretary of defense and chairman of the Joint Chiefs from his national

Comments:
Wow. The dictator and his regime have spoken. Their arrogance is absolutely stunning. I´m sure the families of those killed sure don´t have the same opinion.

Did I miss the part on who called the stand down- 3 times? Mr Panetta was given the ok to do "whatever" but he isnt the CIC..

Where was Obama and the Sec of State when real time was playing of attack?

All questions are not answered...

The WH has done a masterful job of cover up and obfuscation. The crucial point is never discussed - September 10, al qaeda chief ayman al-zawahiri vowing to avenge the death of abu yahya al-libi, a high-ranking al qaeda official killed by an American drone attack three months earlier issues direct threats against Americans in Libya. al-zawahiri released a film on the 10th, a 2 hour film eulogizing his friend. This was the trigger for the protests in Egypt, mostly organized by his brother Mohammed, and the attack in Benghazi. Obama would have been briefed on the film either on the 10th or the 11th, before the attack. Obama knew the attack was coming. The al qaeda leader arrested in Egypt, accused of plotting and carrying out the attacks, has direct links to al-zawahiri. We´ve allowed the administration to distract us and follow red herrings. The right questions have never been asked. And soon it will all be forgotten.

Obama had better start coming up with something better than this. Dr Ben Carson, who is retiring from surgery in July, said he would run for political office if he felt God grabbing him by the collar. This won´t wash with someone like Carson and he won´t mind saying so. In no uncertain terms.

The main focus of the 5;PM meeting was the previously scheduled phone call with Netanyahu..not Libya, did Obama discuss any of it with the Israelis? If he had already been notified prior to the call that an attack was under way..Mossad has eyes and ears everywhere... was help sought? offered? declined?

the questions have been answered every way possible. That is except the truth.

Time for a Special Counsel to investigate.

I understand that if the order was given "to do all possible...." a special order document had to be prepared and signed by our peter pan president, in order for and military action to be undertaken.

I think the bottom line to this massive coverup is it exposes Obama´s muslim outreach as a failure. That´s why the video was the first excuse offered in the fiasco. Hillary knew the real reason,that´s why she didn´t go on the Sunday shows. Rice was the only Obama devotee to throw her career under the bus by taking her place.

From the very beginning they all knew the video was a lie and Obama and Hilary made a tape shown in Pakistan blaming the tape way after they knew it was a lie.

This is incompetence ,maleficence and dereliction of duty on both these people,with Panetta thrown is as a co-conspirator.

Why ordered the CIA to dig dirt on Patraeus to get him ousted from the agency? The socialite email has turned out to be another lie reported by the media.

#7 I agree. If this were a Republican President, the press would be all over it. My local paper has nothing in it about Libya. I guess they like keeping their readers in the column of "low info voters". They know that if the truth were known before the election, there is no way this guy would have been reelected.

Sometimes we expect a lie so we don´t pay attention to what is said. Here´s Carney´s response, "He immediately ordered those two leaders to take every action necessary to try to position forces in a way that could assist in Benghazi and also potentially take action, if necessary, elsewhere, because of all that was enfolding around the region.”

The action statement: "take every action necessary to try to position forces in a way that could assist in Benghazi and also potentially take action, if necessary, elsewhere..." There is no request for plans of action in response to an attack on our embassy nor implied release of forces for any action based on what had already taken place. And then Obama is gone.

Please forgive me! I really hate to make a pest of myself. But, I’m still awaiting an answer, a straight answer, not an evasive answer to the question I’ve asked several times before. For the umpteenth time:

Precisely who was it that issued the by-now-almost-legendary order to “Stand Down!”???

Has my question been swept under the rug? Thrown under the bus? C’mon Obama Administration, it’s high time you grow up and ‘fess up!

I believe we have lost the media in this country. It is clearly covering for Obama.

A word to those in Republican leadership, how about buying some TV ads that will keep the questions before the American people. Don´t let the media stop you from getting answers. Think outside the box and use the money you have to expose Obama. Take this directly to the people. Use every avenue available, TV, social media, Twitter, etc. And for goodness sake, stay on it. If done correctly, this could do great harm to Obama.

#4 and #7. It´s not that the WH has done a "masterful job" or that the media provides a cover, the problem is the US Senate that let Hillary off the stick with her "at this point what difference does it make?" remark. As Sec of State she is responsible for the lack of security before the attack occured. She knew, or should have known, of the danger and of the requests for beefed up security. If she didn´t know it points to her failure of putting into place structure and procedures in her dept to ennsure that important messages such as this were received and should reach her desk.

No "Stand Down" order was given or needed because no order to actually do anything was ever given.

"Everything possible" is a weasel phrase which means nothing without specifics.

The occupant of the White House his underlings Carney, Brennan et al still do not get the severity of 9/11. Four US citizens, one the Libyan Ambassador were fighting for their lives. They fought for over 5 hours to defend the Benghazi Consulate and compound.Obama was not doing his job . First to get his top officials together and work on a plan to send help to these unfortunate consulate defenders.No if´s or but´s. No trips to Las Vegas to insure he would be numero uno.He was on the phone for an hour talking to Israeli Netanyahu .Panetta the wimp publically stating that there was no effective force nearby. What a ´crock´ F16´s were on standby at Sicily 15 to 25 mins away from Benghazi.This bunch recently interrogated (It was a case of how many softballs the Senate and House could throw , even the GOP wimps threw a few). Let´s get our act together put our foot down court martial Obama after all he is the CIC and forget these two inadquate , incompetant Nominees Hagel and Brennan.For goodness sake let´s do something that is obvious and is RIGHT to protect the USA.

Of course they are done with Benghazi, but they have hedged and fumbled to protect what was actually going on. None of these people really know what happened there, but one pereson does and that is John Brennan. It was his little operation and of course the President doesn´t know much about it although he probably told Brennan to do what he needed to do to go forward on Obmam´s foreign policy. Brennan did and Obama knows little about it. Ask John Brennan what he was doing that day and what his role was in the Arab Spring. I still believe that Obama told the military to stand down.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla.

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

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages. A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described “rant” on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who “deny” global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests.

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

US employers add 192,000 jobs;

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

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

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

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

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

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.

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 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

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
