Posted on 05/10/2013 7:57:41 PM PDT by topher
The White House scrambled Friday to explain newly released email excerpts that show a top State Department official pushing to water down the intelligence community's initial story-line on the Benghazi attack, as Republicans sharply challenged the administration's honesty.
With new details emerging in the Benghazi-gate controversy, the White House held a background discussion with more than a dozen news organizations. Afterward, Press Secretary Jay Carney weathered a barrage of questions from the media during an at-times awkward White House briefing -- where he tried to defend the truthfulness of his and other officials' prior claims that the initial talking points on the attack reflected the best intelligence assessment of the time.

Though this is not new, it appears that this term will stick since the leading news organization in the US has decided to run with it...
Seems like some very stupid folks is Washington have light a fire under T.E.A. folks with the IRS scandal.
Sounds like O-bozo is going to have throw a number of people under the bus...
Sad, isn’t it? Fox has to search FR for vocabulary words.
It’s tough when your native environment is 14% Arabic.
The bad news is: apparently something is going to happen with the arms-running Benghazi is/was all about.
No other reason for the WH to stop digging the hole and looking for a way out. It’s not like anybody in the admin cares about their reputations, or souls, for that matter.
That, or Jarrett has been knocked off the chess board and gravity is doing its thing.
So. He’s going to start burning out structures in this country, too. Prepare to be Benghazied.
I thought we agreed on another thread today to replace the “gate” suffix with “ghazi”?! So it’s Benghazighazi from now on!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
It seems to have traction.
10% of the Obama voters; those with some intellect at least are seeing some cognitive dissonance...
Brace for impact?
MSM has to lead or nothing doing. Then, we’d need a John Dean type insider traitor. The Negro lawyeresses around Obamugabe Jarrett, Mills. Rice, ain’t likely to do it.
"The Saudi, Moslem Brotherhood
and al Qaeda monies have cleared to your accounts.
They want you to green light them
to remove the intermediary Ambassador,
and take down the Seal Team."
Yep. He was horrible today.
I heard Geraldo use it last fall on Fox, not long after it happened. He made a deal out of the phrase, as if no one else would have thought of it.
Jay Carney was twisting around like rusty old barbed wire wrapped around the rear axle...
The more he drove -- the worse it tangled...
When he tried to stop and get the wire-cutters...
It bit him.... pretty good one too....
May I be the first to anticipate his impending resignation...
...rats/sinking ship.... etc...
I put both keywords in this thread: benghazi and benghazigate
Freerepublic has a standard for some things: banglist for guns, prolife for abortion, prolife, euthanasia, etc...
Maybe as Freerepublic has a Copyright keyword for how to post, maybe there should be a keywords thread for the keywords to use...
