The White House held an off-the-record briefing with reporters on Friday afternoon to discuss recent revelations about the Benghazi investigation, sources familiar with the meeting tell POLITICO.

lil prick sure looks like Rachael Madcow
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?
Good point, I don’t know.
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.’
They ever been seen together???
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.
probably date the same girl
I had to step out for a few. Sounds like the smoke machine is set on full blast. We’re getting lost in the weeds here.
The IRS story is going to explode.
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?
The presser is still going on but I can’t find it anywhere. Not on FOX, CPSAN’s or anywhere. Why doesn’t FOX go back to the Presser?
They haven’t even mentioned the testimony of Hicks, Thompson or Nordstrom at Congress on Wednesday!
The Obama admin is in the nexus of SEVERAL scandals that are ready to be viral. Let’s all do our part to spread the info.
OMG..direct your questions to the intelligence community
and blaming leadership of CIA
maybe in the off the record meeting they were told not to...
So Petraus is under the bus for the talking points
no we ain’t ...this jickeyjack is providing the intention of O/ and Hillary’s strategy.....
remember CIA folk wanna talk too
No one is asking about who ordered the Stand down...
To whom it may concern:
The attorney for Gregory Hicks will be on live at 5:30 pm on “Talk 1300 Albany”.

-— Good grief. Let us here right now ask the damn questions. We are better informed ——
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.
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
Note the dates from 9/13 to 9/20. First public pronouncement of a 'terror attack' seems to have been made on 9/21.
A reporter brought up comparison to Nixon...
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?
Remember folks, it is Friday afternoon. The WH now has the entire weekend to bury this story. This presser is a sham to kill the story.
” What is WG doing?”
To whom it may concern:
The attorney for Gregory Hicks will be on live at 5:30 pm eatern on “Talk 1300 Albany”.
Listen live at the link:
What is “WG” ?
The obverse is that FReepers and others have the weekend to focus in and expose the lies
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!!!
“THE CHARGE OF THE OBAMA PRESS CORPS BRIGADE !”
LOL! Absolutely great!
That would be Victoria Toensing! She is Excellent!
Will this be aired again?
Anyone have a link to this show for replay?
Thaks! Who would know that?
Hillary discussed “the video” DURING the memorial service in front of the families.
He ( wendel goler) should be fired! Way to take Jay Carney off the hook. I’m livid! The American sheeple better wake up! Hoping that the msm will finally get it! I despise Obama and his minions.
So...it is ON the record that there was an OFF the record meeting.
And the subject ON the agenda is OFF limits to the rest of us?
“What Difference Does It Make?”
“So Petraus is under the bus for the talking points”
Petraus has a chance now to be a patriot and tell all. Will he?
Goler has been slanting for the left for many years.
