Posted on 09/14/2012 9:44:42 AM PDT by Wilderness Conservative

'This is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims'

Then why are they attacking our Embassies? This is so stupid, it is bizarre.

Is this a case of “Who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?”

REALLY? Like 9-11 wasn’t directed at the US.

0bama’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood in taking out Mubarek in Egypt and Kaddaffy in Libya has produced lawless regions without dictators (who at least didn’t direct their badness at us). We need to get troops surrounding our Embassies in the Middle East. If we can’t protect the flag, then we need to leave the region.

Someone should put together a “Carney’s most obvious lies” list or video and send it to the Romney Campaign. (Maybe a Debbie Wasserman Schultz vid too, but I don’t know if there’s a storage medium with sufficient capacity for that one).

It's a conspiracy to make Chairman Obmakov look bad!
You see, George W. Bush's best friends cousin’s exhusband’s daughter knows a friend that has a brother that works for a secret militia that stages these things.
It's Bush's fault.

is this boy stupid?

how long has this video been out, and when did this violence start?

looks like the 11th anniversary of 9/11.

if you are too stupid to draw an intelligent conclusion, then you are too stupid to be in control of anything but a toy boat in a bathtub, with mama’s help of course.

Blessings, Bobo

Just another segment of amatuer hour at the white hut. And Obama keeps pretending like nothing happened, and nothing IS happening. I guess he thinks that if he hides from questions and just keeps on trucking as usual, it will just go away. LOL! Carney only further demonstrates the obviousness of this administration not having ANY IDEA what it's doing.

Just deny, deny, deny, then say something bad about Romney, then deny, deny, deny.

FROM TODAYS PRESSER...........................Q: Intelligence at all suggesting that there would be an attack?

Carney: “There was no intelligence that in any way that could have been acted on in any way to prevent these attacks.”

More: “The report is false.”

Q: Why was there not adequate security around Ambassador Stevens?

Refers to the State Department on specific security arrangements.

Q: Extra security on 9/11?

Carney: “We are very vigilant on anniversaries like 9/11. … But let’s be clear, these protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region.”

More: “We don’t know otherwise. We have no information to suggest that it was a pre-planned attack. The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that many Muslims find offensive. And while the violence is reprehensible and unjustified, it is not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary.”

Q: You think it was spontaneous protest?

Carney: “This is obviously under investigation.”

Q: You’re operating under the assumption the protest was in reaction to the video?

Carney: “This is under investigation. The unrest around the region has been in response to this video.”

Carney says Libya was a “very new government” that had just come out of a revolution.

Q: Failure of 9/11 was a failure of imagination. Is this a failure? Did POTUS mess up?

Carney: “Jake, again, what we have seen is unrest around the region in response to a video that Muslims offensive, many Muslims. … We have seen incidents like this in the past, in reaction to other actions — cartoons and other actions that have been taken that have been, that have led to protests and violence in the region. We have managed those situations and we are working to ensure that our diplomatic personnel and our diplomatic facilities are secure as we deal with the response to this video, which we believe is offensive and disgusting.”

Q: It’s no longer just about the film?

Carney: “The reason why there’s unrest is because of the film. I don’t doubt…”

More; “We obviously are not polling protesters to find out what their motivations are. There is no question that there is anti-American sentiment in various countries around the middle east.”

Q: Do you think that if the POTUS was interested in protecting Americans and the constitutional right of free speech, he would declare these invasions of American soil and cold blooded murder as an act of war? A: Had Romney been more supportive of Chairman Obamakov, this would never had happened. This is why matters of foreign diplomacy should be left in the hands of the Won.

Carney said the protests are about the film about 20 times. But if it’s “still under investigation”, how can they know for sure the protests are about the film? Total BS.

Tapper almost nailed Carney on the no intelligence lie. Carney realized he was caught and he punted to DNI rather than answer the question.

It suits Obama's purposes to have a pathological liar (like Obama himself) in that position.

It was no accident that Carney got that job.

Carney = amateur Joseph Goebbels
We The People aren’t buying it.

Carney is less like Goebbels; Dr. Josef was a master at propaganda, where Carney is just a newsreader.

Carney is more like Eugen Hadamovsky, the national programming director for German radio and chief of staff in the Nazi Party's Central Propaganda Office.

Whereas, Valerie Jarrett is most like Martin Bormann. And Eric Holder is parallel to Ernst Rohm.

Even the msm has trouble buying a story that terrorist attacks on 9/11 was just a coincidence. I’ll bet the admin would not even call the attack in libya a terrorist attack

1. Does the administration consider the libyan attack on 9/11 to be a terrorist attack?

2. Did president obama cancel an intelligence briefing the day after the 9/11 terrorist attacks to attend campaign rallies in las vegas and colorado?

As has been reported, accurately, various places, these rioters have no experience living outside a world dominated almost exclusively by state run media.

So they aren’t able to distinguish between something that comes from America, and something that comes from America with the explicit support of the US government.

So Carney is being a dipsh!t here: the rioter certainly ARE rioting against the US

You right wing zealots need to take a step back and analyze the position Mr Carney is in. Lets face it, this man has a very hard job to perform.
On a daily basis he is desperately trying to keep the American people, and the press, informed about the inner workings of a every conceivable difficult position this administration has found itself in, and, please pay attention here you freepers:
he must do this impossible job, daily, with a straight face!

Can you just imagine the talent it must take to be able to perform like this,, go on,, try it,, go stand in front of the mirror and repeat after me....
“these protests are not,, spppifflelel snork......see!! it’s hard!!!!
