Obama administration in panic mode over new Benghazi revelations

The Obama administration was thrown into panic mode yesterday afternoon after ABC News reported on leaked internal government emails that show that the adminstration had lied to the public in the aftermath of the attack on the Benghazi consulate in Libya on September 11, 2012 that resulted in the deaths of four Americans including Libya ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The attack was initially blamed on violent protests supposedly inspired by a pathetic Youtube video mocking muslims, with President Obama, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and other senior administration officials persisting with the false story for weeks. It subsequently emerged that there had been no protests and that it had been an organised terrorist attack carried out by an al Qaeda linked group.

The leaked emails contradict White House claims that they were not responsible for editing the "talking points" that blamed the attacks on the video. They had insisted that this story came from the intelligence community, however the leaked emails show that the initial draft of the talking points submitted by the CIA underwent twelve revisons by administration officials before the final version was settled on that blamed the video for provoking violent protests that lead to the deaths of the four Americans.

In response to the revelations, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney delayed his press briefing by over an hour and held what was initially described as an "off the record" meeting with 14 news media organisations. White House spokesman Josh Earnest subsequently denied this unusual meeting with select members of the press was "off the record" but instead described it as a "deep background" briefing.

In his analysis of the controversy, BBC North American editor Mark Mardell has written that "this is now very serious, and I suspect heads will roll. The White House will be on the defensive for a while."

Still, I reckon Obama is relieved that Rodham is no longer Secretary of State.

If she was still there, she would be causing an even bigger embarrassment. Sacking her for incompetence would be unacceptable to the Dumbocrats, and their arrogant confidence in her.

Well, some posters on the P.IE did point out repeatedly that assisting the wahabbist nutters in Libya was a big mistake. Now, they have been proven correct. What is in place now in Libya is much worse than what was in place previously. And it will get worse. Worse for Libya, and worse for the rest of the region.

Where is that useful idiot Samantha Power, (who happens to be Irish - cringe), these days ?

Benghazi should eliminate any aspirations Hillary Clinton had on the White House now. ;)

Why isn't the media all over this?

The possibility of President lying about a burglary caused political earthquakes resignation and made the careers of the journalists who sniffed it out.

The possibility of the President lying about the circumstances and culpability of the administration in the events surrounding the murder of 4 American officials including an amabassador is, as so eloquently put on this thread "zzzzzz"

Now come on. Do you think Pravda are going to tell the truth on anything embarrassing to the Dumbocrat Party of the USA ?

Have they ever done so ?

In fact they never criticize the Republican'ts seriously, either.

"The White House Press Officer delayed his briefing for an hour"

Obviously, a crisis of 9/11 proportions has occurred. The Drudge Report and inside-the-beltway spin doctors will have a field day. Talking heads will yap on Fox News. Wise grey hairs will shake. Brows will be furrowed. Gas and hot air will fill the atmosphere.

Isn't it strange that the Obama White House are taking more flak from Republicans over Benghazi than Bush got over 9/11? Even over the negligence alone, and that's before you even get to the easy passage home given to Bush's Saudi friends.

Four Americans dead on the watch of a Democrat far outweighs thousands under a Republican.

You obviously do not look at multiple media sources for information. Just saying. There are several media outlets all over the Benghazi hearings that are taking place now.

The lies, deception, cover up, and murder of 4 Americans (one ambassador) could have been prevented.

Hasn't Rand Paul said that Stevens was organising and arming Libyan Jihadist fanatics to go and fight in Syria.?

One of these groups got angry with him for some reason and that was why he got killed

Well if Rand Paul says it is has to be absolutely positively true.
