White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Monday was unable to answers questions regarding Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission for the U.S. in Libya, saying recently that U.S. Special Forces were told to stand down during the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi.
The Department of Defense has addressed this, Carney said in response to Ed Henrys question about the alleged stand down order. I dont have access to the interviews that I think have been referred to and some of the news reports.
Carney continued, arguing that the official response to the attacks has already been thoroughly examined by the Accountability Review Board and White House officials.
[Greg Hicks] is challenging the credibility of the White House, Henry persisted. You dont care about what hes saying? Do you think hes lying?

I believe Ozone auditioned many, many lairs for this position before he chose Carney.
Who cares? Charge 4 counts of murder and make them all sweat. We’ll get the truth.
Can we say “PAAANIC,” children?
I think it would be harder to lie like he does, if the PRESS would call him on the lies, one reporter challenging him isn’t a problem, ALL of them would be.
Lamestream media when repubs are pres.—
pres: The sky is blue
Press: YOU’RE LYING
lamestream press with dims—
King Berrie: The moon is made of cheese, I know, I’ve been there.
Press: IT’S TRUE!!! IT’S TRUE!!! if you don’t believe it YOU’RE RACIST..
king berrie LIES and the press SWEARS to it.
And, what difference does it make?
The lamestream are on his side.
The lamestream got him elected, twice.
Aside from Fox News, talk radio, Free Republic and the new media, journalism is dead in this country.
Pity, pity, pity.
If there was no ‘stand down’ order from 0bama, then it’s ‘negligent homicide’ or dereliction of duty on his part. No way around that. He can’t say he didn’t know an assault was under way.
Jay Carney ain’t no Ron Ziegler:
“This is the operative statement. The others are inoperative.”
“If my answers sound confusing, I think they are confusing because the questions are confusing and the situation is confusing.”
“The president is aware of what is going on in Southeast Asia. That is not to say that there is anything going on in Southeast Asia.”
Of course Carney can answer the questions...He’s just not going too...
No need to ask if they were told to stand down, ask if Obama ever gave the Cross Border Authority. He either did or he didn’t, and we all know he did not.
Well, he certainly couldn’t say “President Jarrett issued the order” now, could he?
Wasn’t it Hilary Clinton who tried to take Obama to task over the “3AM phone call”? Now she’s deeply involved in the coverup over a 3AM phone call and SHE was secretary of state at the time. I think she has the goods on Obama. Otherwise, he’d have thrown her under the bus months ago.
Can some photo shopper put Jay on a card like Bagdad Bob!
Looks like he lives through Carney!
I like Ed Henry. He is a Take No Prisoners type. We need more like him. No wonder he didn't fit in at CNN. Fox is lucky to have him.
Obama should be sent to Gitmo.... as an enemy detainee.
