Just one more angle to this story... Duck and cover...
President Barack Obama called Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at approximately 10 p.m. on the night of the terrorist attacks on the U.S.
facilities in Benghazi, Libya, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told CNSNews.com.
That was more than six hours after the attacks started, more than an hour before Tryone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed--and about the time that
Clinton first released a statement linking the attacks to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” a reference to an anti-Muslim video on
“Like every president before him, he has a national security adviser and deputy national security adviser,” Carney told CNSNews.com on Tuesday.
“He was in regular communication with his national security team directly, through them, and spoke with the secretary of state at approximately 10
p.m. He called her to get an update on the situation.”
Carney was responding to questions from CNSNews.com about who Obama communicated with on the evening of Sept. 11, 2012. Outgoing Defense Secretary
Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, told the Senate Armed Services Committee they first notified the president of the
attack during a Sept. 11, 2012 meeting that began at 5 p.m. and ran for about 30 minutes. They also told the committee they did not talk to Obama or
anyone else at the White House after that meeting.
So it took this long to respond to question regarding who Obama was actuall in contact with? Obama was in contact "through his team" not DIRECTLY.
Really folks... During an attack on a US facility in a hostile country our President was communicating via proxy
Have they been working on getting their stories straight??
Over the course of a week--from Jan. 8 to Jan. 15--CNSNews.com tried to get the State Department to simply say when exactly on the night of Sept.
11, 2012, the department issued this statement. The State Department would not respond. CNSNews.com called again Tuesday to inquire what time the
statement was released. The State Department again did not respond.
However, the Associated Press confirmed to CNSNews.com that at 10:58 p.m. Eastern time that night, it ran a story quoting from Clinton's statement
linking the Benghazi attacks to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet.” Also, FactCheck.org, a project of the Annenberg Public Policy
Center, has reported that the State Department released Clinton's statement "about 10:00 p.m."--which is when Carney tells CNSNews.com Obama phoned
It was also reported at the time that Obama was watching this attack unfold from the situation room. What happened to that story?
On Tuesday, CNSNews.com emailed White House Press Secretary Carney follow-up questions about the Obama-Clinton 10:00 p.m. telephone call on Sept.
11. “Did the president and Sec. Clinton discuss the statement she was about to issue?" CNSNews.com asked. "And did they discuss the issue of
‘inflammatory material posted on the Internet?’”
Carney did not directly answer either question. Instead, he responded, “At about 10 pm, the President called Secretary Clinton to get an update on
CNSNews.com also asked Carney about the Senate testimony of Panetta and Dempsey: “Panetta and Dempsey said after they were finished with the 5:30
meeting--the meeting from 5 to 5:30--that they weren’t in contact with the White House.”
What gives? Someone is spinning a web of lies. Observe Carney's remarks Compared to what was actually said by Dempsey and Panetta
Carney responded, “No. They didn’t say that. They said they hadn’t spoken with the president. The president has a National Security Advisor
as has every president before him dating back many, many presidencies. He has a deputy national security adviser and remember he had already spoken
with and met with in person and discussed ongoing attack in Benghazi with the secretary of defense, with the chairman of the joint chiefs.
So basically Carney is saying that Panetta and Dempsey were in contact with the White House and not Obama.
Then, explain this
At a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Feb. 7, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R.-N.H.) asked Panetta: “Did you communicate with anyone else at the
White House that night?”
“No,” said Panetta.
Anyone at the White House? I assume that would be any member of Obama's National Security Team eh?
So, was Hillary coached by Obama? Remember this was very close to the election. Why is Carney getting his facts messed up regarding who spoke with
who. Perhaps he would like to testify under oath?? Then we can finally get into some clear air regarding this Travesty. We are one step closer to
a full out investigation and charges filed...
Hillary knew about this attack at least ONE hour before Obama got wind of it... Where is the breakdown in communication?? I guess they were all left
scrambling to find the appropriate script to read off of and clearly got them mixed up....
