As I and many others have been saying Benghazi is a very big deal and getting bigger by the moment. The White House flat out lied about the events. They knew it was an attack, they were warned before the attack, and yet doing nothing a US Ambassasdor and three others were killed, our flag ripped down and burned and an Al Qaeda flag was flow in it’s place and this administration continued the lies and the spin until they were exposed.
Then they threw Hillary Clinton under the bus.
“Top officials have already claimed the nation’s intelligence agencies did not alert the White House to the growing danger facing the State Department’s facility in Benghazi, Libya, which was destroyed Sept. 11 by a jihadi attack on the 11th anniversary of the atrocities in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
The claim was repeated Oct. 11 by Vice President Joe Biden during the vice presidential debate in Danville, Ky. “We weren’t told they wanted more security,” he announced.
Ben Rhodes, President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser for communications, extended the claim Oct. 11 by telling told Foreign Policy magazine that neither Biden nor President Barack Obama knew of the growing danger.
“Biden speaks only for himself and the president and neither of them knew about the requests at the time,” Rhodes said, according to Foreign policy.
“These kinds of issues are handling in the State Department by security officials,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said during Friday’s press briefing.
Security matters “are decided at the State Department,” he said, amid tough questioning from Fox News Channel’s Ed Henry.
The White House’s statements leaves Hillary Clinton on the hook, because she runs the Department of State.”
Of course they do, but they don’t absolved the President, Vice President of the ulimate responsibility to protect our people aboard, nor from lying about it when things go bad.
Alex Pappas of the Daily Caller tells us:
“With tensions between President Obama and the Clintons at a new high, former President Bill Clinton is moving fast to develop a contingency plan for how his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, should react if Obama attempts to tie the Benghazi fiasco around her neck, according to author Ed Klein.
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Klein said sources close to the Clintons tell him that Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team to discuss how the Secretary of State should deal with the issue of being blamed for not preventing the Benghazi terrorist attack last month.
Make no mistake there has always been bad blood between the Clintons and the Obamas and it’s about to come to a head as Obama – doing what he does best, blame others, blames them for the fiasco at Benghazi.
Going to be fun watching the fireworks ensue.
The Commander in Chief at Work!
