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

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 YouTube


“Like every president before him, he has a national security adviser and deputy national security adviser,” Carney told 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 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. 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. called again Tuesday to inquire what time the statement was released. The State Department again did not respond.

However, the Associated Press confirmed to 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,, 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 Obama phoned Clinton.

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, 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?" 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 the situation.” 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....

Let me wrap my head around in the digital age where news can circle the world in a matter of seconds did not know about the attack for at least 5 hours then another hour after O and H decided it might be time to get on top of it.

Talk about inept,incompetent hey Obama and hiliary those terrorist came they saw and 4 Americans died.

Hey Americans 4 Americans are dead, but Obama got relected because they chose to downplay the murder of those Americans.

Wish someone would make a "documentary" bout Benghazi like another hot topic on ATS.

Everyday it's a new twist in this disaster. Time to lay it all out just to get the multitude of stories straight. Time to dust off my pencil and paper..

Ummm...and this is a shock? The current administration (and probably all before them) work hard and spend a lot of money to get elected. Some may say then GET a lot of money to use TO get elected. Their ONLY job after getting elected is "change nothing" and defend the party to assure a continued place of power for as long as possible..."no matter what". Lie, cheat, kill, war, etc. These people are not, and have never been here to serve us...the people. Never! "Change nothing" really so simple. Everything is a scale...50 lbs on one side and 50 lbs on the other...and there are many scales. So you can flip that 50/50 to 20/70 so long as one of the other scales flips the opposite. But don't fool yourselves...while it "adjusts" it never changes.

So four Americans were killed. All this meant to these people is "crap...something we have to cover up and/or spin". "How can we use this to our benefit...or to hurt the other side?". That was the only question, the only concern. You, I, my kids mean nothing. The government would off them in a second...human lives...if it meant one good story supporting their cause, continued employment and power.

Our government is our "Devil". It is the true evil and will be the undoing of the entire human race...or at least us Americans. Remember the old saying..."The enemy of my enemy is my friend".

Not holding my breath, but its something...

“With all of the Benghazi lies coming out of the Obama administration, the only way to get at the truth is to release these records immediately,” said Thomas J. Fitton, the president of the Washington-based Judicial Watch, a conservative, non-partisan education foundation.

The lawsuit asks the court to compel the Obama administration to release documents originally requested Oct. 19 through the Freedom of Information Act process, he said.

Judicial watch is pretty tough and they usually get what they need via a formal lawsuit. Many are also asking to see the drone footage of those attacks. The same footage that Obama was watching while eating his popcorn as fed to him by Reggie Love.

Yes, lets take a look at that drone footage.
I think they will do anything to keep that locked up.
