Skip to comments.CNNís Crowley and company eat crow on Benghazi water-carrying for Obama
Posted on 10/17/2012 6:48:42 AM PDT by Lakeshark
Mitt Romney was right.
Barack Obama was wrong.
And now, after journo-tool/moderator Candy Crowley jumped to Obamas aid in front of millions of viewers, CNN is admitting that her fact-check was not kinda, sorta, no completely cut and dry factual.
CNN walks back false act of terror fact check.
Hows that crow tasting, lapdogs?

Unfortunately for them, they will now have to continue to carry the lie, focusing the country's attention on this horrendous mess the administration has made.
Should be a link, embedded in Michelle’s post: READ: http://twitchy.com/2012/10/16/and-now-cnn-walks-back-false-act-of-terror-fact-check/
Candy has established herself a legacy
Romney still beat them both and the liberal crowd who clapped at the lie Crowley said against Romney. The wookie led the clapping . This whole thing was a setup , a lynching against Romney but he still won and came out on top. The polls will show this even if the liberal media tries to manufacture a small bounce for Obama now.
Monday night BO hid behind Hillary’s ample skirt. Last night it was behind Crowley’s skirt. What a hissy coward we have for a president.
Amazingly Crowley said she knew the question would come up so she reviewed the facts before hand and even brought the Rose Garden statement transcript - AND STILL GOT THE FACTS WRONG!
Candy falls on her sword for Zero.
And, much like the Corpulent King in the Biblical Book of Judges, The sword gets lost in a sea of blubber.
Too bad for Candy and the commies at CNN.
Where is that pic of barry hiding behind moooo-chele during that karate thing.
Once said, the audience believes. And Crowley knows it.
This has never been mentioned before. It is an admission that they knew of the coordinated attack and it now makes sending Ambassador Rice to the Sunday talk shows to promote the video hoax and his statement about the video when he spoke at the U.N. even more disgusting.
Oh, it's more than that!! CNN media whore Candy Crowley got down on her knees and 'serviced' Traitorobama right there in front of the studio audience and TV viewers.
Move over, Monica. There's another "legacy" in your place! (Bill Clinton should be jealous!)
That is one for the ages!
Next debate moderator...Mark Levin!
In the end, this will backfire. This will bring attention to Obama's lying, which the enemedia has tried to sweep under the carpet. Too bad for Candy and the commies at CNN.
You are right on. I got the feeling that Obama can't remember all the lies he's told and what he's said. He can't remember all his missteps. He's going down.
And yet you let it continue for 6 hours and DID NOTHING!
Stop obfuscating and beating around the bush...
TELL US HOW YOU REALLY FEEL!!
Enjoy your day
“In the debate Obama said, “As soon as I was notified of the attack in progress, I was on the phone with my National Security Team.”.
This has never been mentioned before.”
I noticed that immediately also. Why hasn’t a single journalist picked up on that? In fact, this past Sunday, Axelrod refused to answer that question.
BTW: Comment from a reader in the Malkin article:
And if you think the bias was bad in Englishmy Mexican born Wife came in from a church meeting after the live debate was over. She and I watched it on one of the Mexican T.V. channelsthe debate had been translated into El Espanol.
She noted that Romney didnt speak much at all compared to President Obamas time.
I noted that most of Romneys time had been edited and the translation cut out his most damaging statements on the economy and the Libyan debacle! Selective editing and out of context work at its finest. She couldnt believe that there was only 3 minutes difference in the 90 minute total time in the live event.
The translated event lasted less than an hour.
Apology for being wrong with a Benghazi fact-check is one thing, but it is the minor apology.
The major apology issued by Candy Crowley should be for “entering the debate”. Had she said, “Gov Romney, your time’s up.”, then it would have been related to process.
However, she — the moderator — got involved in the debate itself, commenting on the words of one candidate to his detriment and to the benefit of the other. She, the referee, decided to tackle the guy who had the ball. That isn’t just wrong about facts. It is unprofessional, and one can even argue , since she was wrong in her correction, that her intervention was unethical.
This point needs to be widely disseminated.
If I told you how I REALLY feel, I’d be banned for life..................
Romney got Bambi to double down on his lie to the world in a moment destined for some marvelous ads, plus what Crowley did will focus a lot of attention on this issue. It's stark black and white, Bambi lied, the ambassador died. Bambi went to Vegas while the coffins were full. He lied for almost two weeks, 6 times in front of the UN.
This is BIG trouble for the democrat/media complex.
I caught that, too, but it won’t/can’t be verified for many years, if ever...................
re: Romney had to debate Candy and “Eye Candy”.
You are assuming that Crowley and her ilk have the capacity to even spell the words "professional", or "ethics", let alone are posesses of the slightest molecule of said qualities. That is an assumption I, myself, am unwilling at this juncture to make...
From the look of Crowley, there's not much she won't eat, but she successfully protected her boy by "conveniently" getting the facts wrong and making Mitt look bad in the process. How many of the people watching are going to bother to find out that she retracted her statement? The damage is done, but it should serve two purposes:
1. Be better prepared for the leftists moderators and;
2. In Monday's debate hit 0bama often and hard on this and the other countless foreign policy failures and specifically point out that Crowley lied to protect him!
0bama showed in this debate he's not above the street punk chi-town tactics and has absolutely no class, so be prepared!
On the phone with the National Security Team? There is a Situation Room in the White House!
QUESTION: We were sitting around, talking about Libya, and we were reading and became aware of reports that the State Department refused extra security for our embassy in Benghazi, Libya, prior to the attacks that killed four Americans.
Obama:So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team and I gave them three instructions. Number one, beef up our security and procedures, not just in Libya, but at every embassy and consulate in the region.
The question was about reports that the ambassador had requested extra security in the past and it had not been provided. Obama admits he didn't provide extra security until after the attack took place (and the ambassador was dead). Literally closing the barn door after the horse had escaped.
Obama never did answer the question about why security wasn't beef up previous to the attack, at the time the ambassador requested it.
It appeared to be a set-up. Candy whipped out the transcript a little too fast - Obama said something like - Candy show the transcript - .say it again Candy - she did both times.
“In the debate Obama said, As soon as I was notified of the attack in progress, I was on the phone with my National Security Team..
It was also mentioned, either here or at the Treehouse, that a communications officer was on the phone from a consulate building, with the embassy AND Washington, during the attack!
Why does Candy Crowley remind me of Honey Boo Boo’s mother?
I don’t blame the Crow for her actions. I don’t blame any of the “moderators” for their Bagdad Bob performances.
These people are what they are. They are KNOWN quantities.
I BLAME THE ESTABLISHMENT PUBBIES FOR CAVING EVERY TIME THE SELECTION IS MADE FOR A DEBATE MODERATOR!
WTF? Neil Cavuto doesn’t get a shot? Why the Eff not? Its like the pubbies pee their pants every time these “debates” are planned, and the selected moderators are ALWAYS barking moonbat libtards! /r>
Hows that crow tasting, lapdogs?
Big deal. Millions saw her side with obama and call Romney a liar. Maybe half a million will see the retraction. She had a mission last night and she accomplished it. Thr retraction is next to worthless now.
“On the phone with the National Security Team? There is a Situation Room in the White House!”
NO ONE has asked Obama where he was when he was told of the attack. It would have been automatic standard operating procedure for Obama to have been told immediately of the attack. Immediately.
Below is Obama’s schedule for Sep 11, 2012. If this account is real time, he was at Walter Reed. The attack began at 3:30pm EST. Did Obama immediately go back to the WH? or did he finish his visit at Walter Reed?
Notice Obama already had a meeting scheduled with Panetta & Biden.
To my knowledge, NO ONE HAS ASKED Obama about his whereabouts or reported [after Benghazi] on his schedule for that day. I dug up this info myself, and as you can see, it was a routine press report dated Sept 11, 2012.
Did Obama ever go into the Situation Room? The attack lasted 6 hrs. My guess is probably not, but I have no doubt that many others did.

Verified or not, he's told the world that he knew of the ongoing attack and did nothing ...maybe just went back to bed as the attacked raged for over 6 hours.
Now that we have that admission or declaration from him directly, how can he square it with his remarks to the U.N about the YouTube video? Worse than that is the fact that U.N. Ambassador began her video hoax two days later and he either perpetrated the hoax or ignored it and let it run, even though he now says he knew what was going on in real time.
I'm pissed that no one is picking up on this ...or even worse, that they are all just letting it go.
“Hows that crow tasting, lapdogs?”
That would by YOU, Pissy Chrissy Mathews.
“It was also mentioned, either here or at the Treehouse, that a communications officer was on the phone from a consulate building, with the embassy AND Washington, during the attack!”
See post 44. I didn’t see you post before I posted, but I meant to add this also.
They had constant communication real time with Benghazi (and photos and video). Immediately, Obama knew that there was no protest in Benghazi, and immediately Obama knew that this was a premeditated, well-planned surgical terrorist strike on the consulate.
Immediately, they ALL knew. Did you listen to Col David Hunt’s interview? I will post it & ping you after it is transcribed. He said once he heard Lamb’s testimony about being in real time communication with Sean (one who was killed), he knew that at least 12 command centers around the world were also listening real time. He said it would have automatic standard operating procedure, and that anyone was has ever been on watch in any of these command centers knows it is SOP.
He emphasized that this is not his opinion, it is SOP, ALWAYS. He said no one needs to make a decision about IF to report or inform, it is automatic.
That is how deep the cover-up goes.
Yeah she was too clever by half!!!
