Carney slaps down Fox journalist over Benghazi
The Daily Caller ^ | 6/5/13 | Maggie Lit

President Obama appointed Susan Rice as Chief National Security Adviser on Wednesday, attracting renewed scrutiny to the administration’s handling of the attack on the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.

Fox News’ Senior White House correspondent Ed Henry brought up the scandal and General Petraeus’ conclusions that the assessments of the Intelligence Committee on the issue changed so much and were no longer worth anything.

Press Sectary Jay Carney tried to slap down the comment.

“In every iteration of this, Ambassador Rice made clear as I did that, these were early assessments that were certain to change as we obtained more facts, and to suggest otherwise is just irresponsible,” Carney said.

Rice controversially claimed after September 11 that the attack in Benghazi was motivated by anger over a video titled ‘Innocence of Muslims’ that was critical of Islam. Officials backed off the claim after a short period.

Barry Benghazi sure pulled a fast one by sticking Rice in a position where she can keep her big mouth shut and cannot be forced to eat cheese on Barry’s regime. “Transparent” my @$$.

I'm not the guy in the camera wearing a mask & robbing your bank.

But this is an early assessment and could change as the police obtain more facts.

I'm not lying and to suggest otherwise is just irresponsible.

Notice the poor sap that made the video remains in a cage. Carney is a sniveling piece of proglodyte trash. May this criminal yet be brought to justice.

The press corp should boo when Carney pulls that crap.

Just drown him out. That would end it real quick.

Wasn’t suggesting a video was responsible just that? How was that NOT irresponsible?

I actually pity Rice.

In her new position as National Security Adviser she is so far over her head she cannot hope to survive.

She will only be repeating what Valerie Jarret tells her to say, she will have no idea WTF is going on.

A person should know their own limitations, She obviously does not.

“Press Sectary Jay Carney tried to slap down the comment.”

Odd that the title left out the tried part.

A lie is a lie, even if you hold out the possibility that the truth later might get out later.

Short period? Attack on 9/11, Obama goes to UN and blames the video on 9/24, two weeks later.

"Due to 'national security reasons', I cannot answer questions on Susan Rice's involvement in a coup de e'tat of the U.S. government."

originalbuckeye ~:” Rice=paid liar. Rewarded with National Security Advisor position.”

Yeah , and that puts her in the administration’s Executive Cabinet ; therefore , under the cloak of “Executive Priviledge” .

Rice isn’t the issue; she is the ‘false flag’ incident to feint attention from other scandelous issues.
Dem’s will indicate it is part of the Repubs “War on Women” for the upcomming 2014 elections.
Keep your eye on Benghazi (Dereliction of Duty; Abandonment of Post ; supply arms to al Qaeda; prior knowledge of kidnapping of ambassador).

Better to lose a losing battle than to loose the war.
Benghazi is the prize

The early assessments NEVER mentioned a video protest.
That was a made up lie from beginning to end!
