Posted on 10/27/2012 1:07:27 PM PDT by edpc
The White House on Saturday flatly denied that President Barack Obama withheld requests for help from the besieged American compound in Benghazi, Libya, as it came under on attack by suspected terrorists on September 11th.
"Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.

And the CIA has denied that anyone in its chain of command rejected requests for help from the besieged Americans.
Well, the personnel on the ground would have made the request through either the WH or CIA. There are only 2 conclusions to be made from those statements.
1 - No request for assistance was ever made. That's highly unlikely.
2 - A massive and blatantly obvious lie/cover up is in effect.
By email? Talk about small balls.
Well, if Obamazombie, Little Tommy Vietor says it, it must be true.
Another lie of omission by the Obama regime. Obama "voted present" on Benghazi and people died because of it.
The system was set to automatically help the Ambassador.
Obama STOPPED it for al Qaeda and his other allies
(who happen to be enemies of the American people).
So now they’re on record saying the White House was out of the loop.
Either they’re stupid, or they’re even stupider.
The noose tightens.
Note he didn’t he say: “The President did not receive any requests for assistance.”
So #2 is probably correct.
these bastards aren’t responsible for anything. it’s always someone else’s “fault”. they would have done the right thing, but someone victimized them.
They are going to try and lie their way through it for 10 days in the hope they win and can then have a fake investigation to give them cover. At some point that will either fall apart, or they’ll admit to themselves that Mitt is going to win.
At that point they will be VERY dangerous.
The MSM isn’t going to put a spotlight on this any more than they have to. Probably our best bet is the Clinton’s will try to salvage their careers by throwing BHO to the wolves and making him responsible for everything.
Panetta said in the NY Times that he was at the WH during the attack, and that risk “impeded” deployment, so I guess they’re going to try to say, ‘we never said no, just not yet’ (until the 4 Americans were dead)
Yep. Clearly he was informed and if he allowed an underling to deny those requests that is de facto denying the requests.
It doesn’t matter who ****** up. Ultimately, it is Obomba’s responsibility. Remember “The Buck Stops Here”? Well, guess what, Barry, YOU OWN THIS MESS.
Then, who did?
Admitting to a pretty weak presidency, Sparky.
A suggestion/warning for all ambassadors/embassy staff posted in dangerous areas.
Dont depend on help from POTUS, SOD, SOS or the CIA! They will not respond to any SOSs. Then they will deny that you asked for help.
Buy or rent an Iridium Sat Phone and put Fox News Desk, Rush, Drudge, Rush and Free Republic on your speed dial, to text or call when you dont want to be slaughtered and need help.
That way the liars of this administration in charge of denying protection for you, cant deny that you asked for help.
Dont waste your remaining time contacting ABCNNBCBS! They are too busy protecting Obozo and his liars while looking for binder and racism lies save the butt of the traitor and his fellow thugs!
If Yahoo! News feels their job is to simply amplify the White House’s lame denial why would anyone consider them a valid source for news?
“At that point they will be VERY dangerous.”...
My thoughts too.
Yahoo news. No need to read further.
he was passed out drunk
