Carney just said repeatedly at the WH briefing that Ambassador Rice very clearly left open the possibility that Benghazi was a result of terrorism because they didn’t yet have all of the facts.

What Susan Rice said, and I quote, was “what happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction ...”

She said “in fact.” Isn’t that in and of itself stating facts he claims they didn’t have?

Liars.

I think he’s setting it up so that the White House can say this:

‘We acted in a deliberate manner, based on apparently incorrect information from the intelligence community. So we’re sorry that we couldn’t act in time to save anybody due to the conflicting reports and information that existed.’

IT is a flat out lie about the CIA. Hicks testified about all this obliquely. CIA on the ground WITH HIM in Libya would have been in contact with him in a crisis. Nobody told him it was a protest. Nobody. This is a fairy tale constructed in Foggy Bottom and at the WH.

I saw that too.

I predict some unexpected deaths among the story’s principals.

Brain aneurysm, plane crash, suicide, etc.

Yes, CIA is going to be left holding the bag.

Which is astounding to me.

Hicks told the Administration that night that it was a terror attack! They did not need to talk to the CIA in the first place. They did not need input from the FBI or anyone else. They had a guy on the ground, several people, that told them it was NOT a demonstration and that it was an attack. Shortly thereafter the people on the ground told them it had NOTHING to do with a video!

Good grief. Let us here right now ask the damn questions. We are better informed. Didn't any of the morons in the White House press room watch Hicks and the others this week?

I believe that the lsm is just beginning to get up to speed. Seriously.

Some reporters are beginning to sense that something untoward is going on here.

Plus, they got locked out of the clubhouse, and they’re pissed.

Hicks was the acting Ambassador. He would have been in contact with the CIA during the crisis and after. He would never have testified that it was an attack if he had any doubts.

Last question on Syria? Let’s see how Jay’s dog and pony show plays out in the MsM. He was evasive and disingenuous. Surely someone in that room caught a whiff of the rot being represented.

Probably not, since that would supply them with facts they don't want to know about.

THE CHARGE OF THE OBAMA PRESS CORPS BRIGADE !

Were there no media-types in the room dismay'd?
Every reporter knew
Someone had blunder'd
But theirs was not to reason why
Theirs was but to do and die
Into the Valley of Lies charged the White House Press Corps Brigade

Lies to the right of them
Lies to the left of them
Lies behind them
Into the White House of Death
Where black lies volley'd and thunder'd
Lies out of the mouth of Hell
Came through the jaws of Obama
Into the Briefing Room of Death
Where on the field died any honor left in the press corpse half-hundred
And the Guardians of Liars remain un-sunder'd

Leni

Here's a good timeline graphic... from this thread.

Note the dates from 9/13 to 9/20. First public pronouncement of a 'terror attack' seems to have been made on 9/21.

The press was going back and forth peppering Carney with questions about Benghazi and whitehouse involvement in IRS scandal, when along comes Wendel Goler of FOXNEWS and totally changes the subject. That’s when they cut to Neil and never went back. What is WG doing?

Finally the truth of Benghazi is starting to be noticed by the lame stream media. It would be nice if Jay Carney and everybody he works with and for are held accountable. 4 people died including an Ambassador — much worse than Watergate!!!
