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

Posted on 06/05/2013 1:00:52 PM PDT by Nachum

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.

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.

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

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

You’re much nicer than I am.

I don’t pity any of these criminals; I pity my children and their generation who will be trying to support families, raise children, and have decent lives in the despicable mess these greedy, power-hungry people have made.

And if she’s in over her head, she just gets to sleep in the bed she’s made for her own selfish reasons.

Actions have consequences.

Talking points were being edited by Hillary & approved by Obama even while the attack was underway at the annex, before more lives were lost there.

Problem is, J, everyone in charge knew what the facts of the case were while the event was happening, and only later was a story concocted to cover up the true nature of the event!

Once again, these people lie because that’s what liars do. They just can’t help themselves.

And yes, once again, Carney proves Issa right: Carney is a paid liar.

no pity for any in this Administration. They KNOW EXACTLY what they are doing and they will ‘rub it in our faces’ any chance they get. Not sure who the top puppet master is but this group manipulates at every turn and, sadly, many Americans and most of the media is taken in by the devious and disingenuous behavior. God help America.

Carney was a worker in a carnival whose job was to be a roustabout and a trouble solver. His very name proves that. Additionally, Carney is a word scrambler who is bound by blood oath to protect the Halfrican phony American who slinks down behind the curtains and blinds of the White Hut.

This entire entourage of evil are bound to destroy this nation.

Exactly !
And the movie that the administration was pushing was so offensive, that the President of Libya refused
to let the “Just Us” Department/FBI into the country to conduct thier investigation.
It seems the President of Libya notified the State Dept. of the situation , the day after the attack.
The State Dept. continued to run with ‘the movie’ incident
