Jay Carney: Hey, Benghazi happened a long time ago

posted at 4:01 pm on May 1, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via the Free Beacon, here’s Carney doing his own version of Hillary’s “What difference, at this point, does it make?” wave-off of an attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three others. By “a long time,” he means seven and a half months. The Newtown murders happened four and a half months ago; the Aurora murders happened nine and a half months ago. Both were highly germane to goings-on on the Hill last month. Is there a different standard for foreign policy? The first alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria occurred in December, a week or two after Newtown, so maybe Carney’s inadvertently previewing O’s next big “red line” dodge. Sure, Assad might have gassed some people. But it was a long time ago.

What he really means here by saying it happened “a long time ago” is that hearings have already been held such that any whistleblower who wants to speak to Congress has had plenty of time to do so. Which is nice, but doesn’t answer the whispers in the press about diplomats being intimidated into silence; as Erika noted earlier, Darrell Issa is promising “new facts and details that the Obama administration has tried to suppress” at the next hearings, which may or may not relate to suspects in the attack. The book isn’t closed on this. Just ask the FBI:

Benghazi was a failure at State, but a very small scale one.
bayam on May 1, 2013 at 4:42 PM

Anytime you lose an embassy, and ambassador & security, in an 8 hour battle without sending support, that is a MAJOR scale loss.

portlandon on May 1, 2013 at 4:57 PM

Benghazi was a failure at State, but a very small scale one. Iraq was x1000 times the failure in lives and treasure lost.

Agreed, I mean it’s not like 4 dead Americans slaughtered by terrorists is worth more than just a cursory examination, not when gay basketball players need to be lauded for their courage.

Why doesn’t anyone on the right demand investigations that explore the failed war strategy in Iraq that’s ultimately descending into another era of chaos where terrorists thrive? Thousands of lives and trillions of dollars lost is suddenly less important than the death of a few Americans in Libya?

Agreed again. And then we can investigate the ongoing war in Afghanistan that is having exactly the same results but with a higher U.S. body count in the last 4 years than the 7 years previous to that.

And then there’s the Gitmo debacle, if only someone had kept their promise to shut that place down.

We should march on D.C. tomorrow!

This regime seems to either be negligent, not care, or plain are too stupid to act on information given to them, cables from Benghazi about growing threats and security problems and Boston, as Russia gave information about concerns about radicalization, that again, ended in the loss of American lives. If it’s not concerning celebrities, golf, vacation, this regime cannot be bothered.

Ohh – ok – so you don’t care that Obumble helped topple a dictator in Libya who had more or less been neutered, in favor of a collection of terrorists who now run rampant – and are busy selling the weapons we gave them to other terrorists in other countries?
You don’t care that Obumble claims to have helped topple a “dictator” in Egypt in favor of a collection of terrorists?
You don’t care that Obumble is now getting ready to help a collection of terrorists topple another Arab dictator in Syria?
If you’re so concerned about “terrorists thriving” in Iraq, why are you NOT concerned about Obumble allowing terrorists to thrive in even more countries?
So the result of what Bush did in Iraq, with the approval of nearly ALL Democrats in Congress, is a horrible thing – but it’s ok that Obumble is doing the same thing in multiple other countries? Right? That IS what you’re saying.

Yes, the US military and Dept of State are incapable of addressing security shortcomings without the right wing involved. Hopefully a few Iraqi war planners can bring their advice. It’s not about a witch hunt to achieve political goals. It’s about security.

And then we can investigate the ongoing war in Afghanistan that is having exactly the same results but with a higher U.S. body count in the last 4 years than the 7 years previous to that.

Good point, it’s much more important than the loss in Libya.

Great, the right wing conspiracy theories have started in Boston. When two individuals plan an attack without revealing their intentions to anyone else in the world, there’s no guarantee that the FBI or any other security agency will detect a plot before it’s executed.

What happened in Benghazi is the failure that should be examined with corrective policies put in place. Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty & Tyrone S. Woods and the ten injured deserve at least that. Although I am sure we will learn something from the Marathon bombings also. I mean, other than the U.S. sucks which seems to be an acceptable explanation for Leftists.

The Watergate burglary, which Nixon had NO knowledge of beforehand occurred on:

17 June 1972

7 months, 22 days – or 236 days – the Senate, led by Democrats, voted to establish a select committee to investigate Watergate.

It’s been 7 months, 21 days – or 233 days – since our consulate was attacked in Benghazi and the first American Ambassador in 33 years to be assassinated, along with 3 other Americans.

Can you please explain to me why Democrats didn’t think
7 months, 22 days (236 days) was ‘a long time ago’ back when Nixon was in office, but 7 months, 21 days (233 days) IS somehow ‘a long time’ now that a Democratic President named Barack Obama is in office or should I just assume that you are an Obama Firster, who would protect him at any and all costs?

I just posted an update on the ‘Incredibly Attractive’ Think Progress Writer:

The University of Wyoming also confirmed a statement that the police had “”obtained substantial evidence verifying that the offending Facebook post came from Lanker-Simons’ computer, while the computer was in her possession.”

According to a Facebook page that apparently belongs to Lanker-Simons she is a member of the University of Wyoming Gender & Women’s Studies group as well as the school’s chapter of The Nonviolent Communist.

Since police cited her, supporters have a constructed a Facebook page entitled “Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent.”

I want you to take a sec and a deep breath, then prepare to throw yourself down the wormhole as you wrap your mind around this:

“MEG LANKER-SIMONS IS INNOCENT we believe WHAT SHE DID WAS JUSTIFIED AND DESERVES NOT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HER ACCUSATIONS we stand behind you sister,” reads that page’s description.

Reduced:

‘Yes, she did it, but she’s innocent because it was a justifiable faking of a hate crime and she doesn’t deserve to be held accountable because, well, she’s special. That’s why.’

FIFY.

Because obviously the MSM would have had the same complete and total lack of interest in the murder of four Americans, including an Ambassador, at the hands of al Qaeda affiliated jihadists if there were R’s next to the names of everyone responsible. Even if it was right before a Presidential election in which a cornerstone of the Republican incumbent’s reelection campaign was his self-congratulatory victorious policies in combating al Qaeda and Islamist terrorism (“bin Laden is dead and al Qaeda is on the run”). /s

No one should care when there is a D next to the names of those responsible and they refused to come clean with the American people right before a Presidential election. Even if the admin is still stonewalling eight months later and the muzzled survivors are clamoring to tell their side of the story, but think they need to get lawyered up first.

Who cares? Ho-hum.

When they are located, will a magistrate be on call to insure that they’re Mirandized?

GarandFan on May 1, 2013 at 5:57 PM

Really ? Then why did the FBI release the three pics today ?

Jabberwock on May 1, 2013 at 5:46 PM

Maybe these 3 pics are ” composites” ;-)
and no such individuals exist,
why else would they be released specially if they are for such a cold case !

Benghazi was a failure at State, but a very small scale one. Iraq was x1000 times the failure in lives and treasure lost.

bayam on May 1, 2013 at 4:42 PM

Oh, please, Minerva. You’re insulting our intelligence here. But what’s new?

1. The Benghazi attack resulted in the first death of a US Ambassador in 33 years. Not in any sense of the word “small-scale”, except to an O’bama Fluffer like yourself.
Had that US Amabassador been killed on Bush’s watch, you Democrats would have already formed a new 9/11 “Commission”.

2. As for Iraq, the US Congress got us into that war, not the State Department. Although it is true that one US Senator, who voted for authorizing that war based on not what Bush’s intel people told her but what her husband’s intel people told her, later became our least-qualified Secretary of State in history. Her successor also voted for that war, not the State Department.

Look, Pruneface, no one here is denying that Iraq was a perfect war, far from it. But for you to try and blame it all on the State Department and at the same time conveniently ignore the many other factors that added to the problems of that war (corrupt Iraqi politicians, for example?) shows you to be nothing but an empty Democrat Vessel who lets WaPo op-eds do your “thinking” for you.

But hey, I’m sure you’re convinced that Iraq would be a better place today with Saddam and his 2 WMD sons still in power…

Awfully touchy and cranky today. What’s the matter? Too many people making sense? Straining what mental faculties you have left trying to keep up with the conversation?

It’s really more basic than that though, isn’t it.

You’re just a hateful, small, contemptible, little cur who can’t get enough attention in your life, and the progressives are tired of your whining and rambling and won’t tolerate you on their sites, so you come here… just for some interaction with people… even though it’s painful for you.

It must be terrible, indeed, to be that lonely.

How do you know it’s a witchhunt? Have you heard from the people on the ground? Have you heard from the eyewitnesses in combat centres? They want to talk. Why has the administration kept them from us for all of these months? Why is the administration fighting their attorneys over clearances?

Look, you believed Obama and his crew when they told you that Benghazi was the result of Cairo and both were the result of spontaneous protests over a youtube video.

Excuse me, but that was PURE BULLSHIT. I read about the protest planned for the Cairo Embassy the day BEFORE it happened and the stated reason was, wait for it, THE BLIND SHEIKH!!! And, reports of the planned Cairo protest were posted as far back as late August and the US government had been notified. Further, the US government was warned repeatedly – FOR MONTHS – about the situation in Benghazi, too.

Check it out…links to the originals!!!

Six to eight months ago the Dems buried a terrorist attack right before a Presidential election and on the anniversary of 9/11. A completely incurious MSM aided and abetted them.

Now the Dems regard it as old news that no one cares about and that no one wants to talk about.

Except that no one has heard a word from the survivors and they want to talk about it.

Meanwhile the Dems pull out the Alinsky playbook and start attacking the Congressman leading the investigation.

You should be able to see the interest in Benghazi here has nothing to do with anyone making a name for themselves. You should be able to see that just by reading the posts on Benghazi and the comments on those posts.

And Jack was being ironic. It does get old.

Did the terrorists have one of these for the attack in Benghazi?

The Iraq Resolution or the Iraq War Resolution (formally the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002,[1] Pub.L. 107–243, 116 Stat. 1498, enacted October 16, 2002, H.J.Res. 114) is a joint resolution passed by the United States Congress in October 2002 as Public Law No: 107-243, authorizing military action against Iraq.
