Jay Carney Unable to Answer Questions Regarding Alleged Benghazi ‘Stand Down’ Orders
The Blaze ^ | May 6, 2013 | By ecket Adams

Posted on 05/06/2013 3:41:09 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee

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 Henry’s question about the alleged “stand down” order. “I don’t 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 don’t care about what he’s saying? Do you think he’s lying?”

I remember that Obama said
“Nobody wants to get to the truth about what happened more than I Do.” That was a long long time ago.. I wonder why it takes the POTUS so long to get to the bottom of something?

I bet there was never an order for Stand down from Obama.

He just made himself unavailable to give the order to go ahead.

I would like to know how much money is wasted on this dog and pony show. I mean the Daily press briefing, the press squads on AF1 and the other big planes.

Because they never get answers when they do ask questions. So WTF is the point in doing it?

Anyone know?

This little twerp has been told to shut up by Obambi's handlers . . . and Obozo has been told to shut up and go play golf . . .

Valerie Jarrett, et al, and all the other unelected and unconfirmed puppet handlers have clammed up. If they lose their sock puppet, they'll be out of work.

Yes, eventually, but we need to go right up the chain of command till we get to the on below Fool Sucka and make them throw him under the bus.

It will be a long shot to get him impeached and removed, but there is an equally big prize here. We need to make sure everyone in the military knows and understands the weight of this and that they are nothing but used toilet paper to this admin.

The more skeptical they are of their CINC, the more they are likely to think about things if he ever tries to grab power.

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.

When Carney first started as press secretary, he was nervous, tentative and unsure of himself. Now that he's become accustomed to telling lies day after day, he hardly even flinches as the whoppers roll of his tongue.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

“It will be a long shot to get him impeached and removed, . . .”

It isn’t going to happen. The Republican House impeached Bill Clinton in 1998, but the Republican Senate did not convict in 1999. On the perjury charge, which should have been a no brainer, only 45 of the 55 Republicans voted to convict. All of the Democrats stood by their Commander in Chief. In today’s political environment I find it difficult to imagine the RINO Republican House Speaker Boehner allowing impeachment hearings under any circumstances. I’m 100% confident Harry Reid and a Democrat majority in the Senate will not convict Barack Obama of anything, particularly if a Republican House impeaches him. It takes a 2/3 majority in the Senate to convict.

With respect to the general staff of the armed forces, Obama has conducted an effective purge of the general officer corps over the past 6 years. The generals he has put in place are politicians who are more loyal to their patron than a 200+ year old piece of paper. Obama and his handlers made examples of McChrystal and Petraeus to show the other generals the penalty for not toeing the line. If Obama tries to assume dictatorial powers, we will find most of them willing accomplices, not defenders of liberty.

Americans didn’t die during the Clinton impeachment. This is much more serious than Monica Lewinsky. BO will be found to have given the orders of not to help because he’s the only one that could being CIC. This is much, much worse.
