Bret Baier: What President Obama really said in that '60 Minutes' interview about Benghazi
FOX News ^ | November 5, 2012 | Bret Baier

Posted on 11/05/2012 5:27:00 AM PST by maggief

ANALYSIS: Two days before the election, CBS posted additional portions of a Sept. 12 "60 Minutes" interview where President Obama seems to contradict himself on the Benghazi attack. As the Benghazi investigation gets more attention and focus, CBS is once again adding to the Benghazi timeline.

In the interview, according to the latest portions, Obama would not say whether he thought the attack was terrorism. Yet he would later emphasize at a presidential debate that in the Rose Garden the same day, he had declared the attack an act of terror.

That moment was one of the most intense exchanges in the second presidential debate. Romney was on the offensive on what conservatives believed was a serious vulnerability of Obama -- the handling of the Benghazi attack and what he called it from the beginning.

The town hall questioner asked, "Who was it that denied enhanced security and why?"

Obama did not provide a direct answer, but said: "When I say that we are going to find out exactly what happened, everybody will be held accountable, and I am ultimately responsible for what's taking place there, because these are my folks, and I'm the one who has to greet those coffins when they come home, you know that I mean what I say."

The 3:00 AM phone call came and Barry put them on hold.

Obama said, “I’m too busy campaigning: call Hillary Clinton instead.”

Love the last line of the article. At least Fox is not going to give up on this, and actually do work that journalists, not cheerleaders, do.

Wow, obama painting Chris Stevens as a freedom fighter for libyan democracy - the cover story made deeper. Now we know that Stevens was nothing more than the administration’s libyan gun runner.

***because these are my folks,***

This is how he always refers to American citizens!!

Those folks or “MY” folks.

Surprising that he has not slipped up and called us “y’all fools”.

The hospital was SURROUNDED by Al Qaeda __for HOURS. That sounds like they wanted him very badly. Again, this goes back to the cazy, “botched prisoner swap” theory...

Thank you Brett. If Obama were a republican, you’d have won a pulitzer by now.

Inhuman. Alien. Foreign.

Do the math, connect the dots...isn't it obvious by now he's playing for the other team?

Who is he? He got the job with falsified paperwork and then sealed all his personal data and went to work running up a multi-Trillion dollar tab on our credit card.

To have let this game be run on us, in spite of our education, technology and easy access to information, we must be the Stupidest Generation.

Now, we get to find out if we are smart enough to learn from our mistakes.

Bob Schieffer, moderator of the third debate and anchor at CBS for 23 years, didn’t know these facts? That seems hard to believe.

Romney made a huge tactical error in not questioning Obama about the obvious lies that were told by him and his cohorts concerning Benghazi.

It may be that since Romney has been getting intel briefs from CIA and NSC, he may have been informed that a bi partisan gun running op was in effect and in all cases, al Qaeda and its affiliates were the primary benefactors.

Seems that only information that was equally damaging to republicans like McCain and Graham as it would be to Bronco would keep Romney from being on this issue.

Romney! why the silence?

Is there any question that CBS is in the tank for Barry? I’m surprised that the even released this tape at all. I for one am boycotting Cbs and the advertisers that support them!

“Why did CBS release a clip that appeared to back up Obama’s claim in the second debate on Oct. 19, a few days before the foreign policy debate, and not release the rest of that interview at the beginning?

Why on the Sunday before the election, almost six weeks after the attack, at 6 p.m. does an obscure online timeline posted on CBS.com contain the additional “60 Minutes” interview material from Sept. 12?”

Because they are leftists and democrat apologists first, and truth tellers last.

You know, in thinking about it, the FCC should have very specific guidelines regarding the editorialization / manipulation of information by supposed broadcast ‘news’ organizations. They force labeling of ‘infomercials’, and if CBS and others are going to withhold information in order to paint a specific narrative that helps the candidate they clearly support, they should have to display the same kind of disclaimer. In fact, I would make it mandatory that anytime a news organization does a political story the breakdown of political contributions of their organization and staff to each party should be displayed.

Doesn’t it seem MSM was poised to pounce again, (WSJ, NYT, WaPo, 60 Minutes, etc.) with WH propaganda? Look at the recent news dumps.

First we need to rid the FCC of Obama buddy and Martha Raddatz’s ex-husband.

No one will hear that message as long as the propaganda machine supports Obama and accordingly, as long as the black flag of Al Q continues to fly in the Rose Garden.

Bret Baier, Jen Griffin, Katherine Herridge, and Greta Van Susteren have been outstanding on this story. I believe they are truly outraged by this and will not stop until they have the whole truth...or at least as close as they can get to it.
