Carney on Benghazi edits: Need I remind you that a certain Mr. Mitt Romney tried to make political hay of the attack?

posted at 6:01 pm on May 10, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via NRO, here’s what the White House has been reduced to in order to downplay a scoop that even some liberal mags are now grudgingly admitting isn’t nothing.

This wasn’t the lowlight of the briefing either. The lowlight was Carney mumbling about the White House having made “stylistic” changes to the CIA’s talking points when the entire world now knows, per ABC’s story this morning, that they weren’t merely stylistic. It took 12 edits to eliminate multiple references to terror groups plus, at State’s request, the excision of an entire paragraph noting that CIA had warned before about jihadis operating in Benghazi before Rice got the memo. Petraeus, according to Steve Hayes, was stunned at the revisions. And meanwhile we still don’t have an answer as to why Rice went out the next day and told Tapper that the Benghazi attack was a “direct result” of the Mohammed video. But if you’re dissatisfied with all that, find a mirror and look long and hard into it knowing this: Mitt Romney was dissatisfied too. How do you feel now? Not so good, huh?

Incidentally, a State Department spokesman was asked today what Victoria Nuland meant when she said of the first revisions to the talking points, “These changes don’t resolve all of my issues or those of my buildings leadership.” Who in State’s “leadership” was unhappy with the CIA’s first take? No answer. But a happy side effect of having Carney stand there today and essentially blame CIA, as head of the interagency group that drafted the final talking points that ended up in Rice’s hands, is that we might get even more disgruntled whistleblowers to come forward, this time from the intelligence community. Keep ‘em coming.

He wasn’t able to pin your squiggly, squirming reptilian eminence to the wall because you were going to extreme lying lengths to hide the truth?

Now that you mention it, we do need to revisit that incident don’t we. How and why did Candy Crowley have in her hand a transcript of an unremarkable boilerplate speech that nobody was talking about, and how did Barack Obama know that she had the transcript all ready to go? “Get the transcript, Candy” I think was what he said.

How’d he know she had it handy?

And meanwhile we still don’t have an answer as to why Rice went out the next day and told Tapper that the Benghazi attack was a “direct result” of the Mohammed video.

I think she did it because Hussein wanted muzies all over the world to rise up and start killing Americans . This was his way of instigating jihad by telling his bretheren
” look what this guy did to you, now go get the kafirs”

burrata on May 10, 2013 at 6:16 PM

We know this much for certain – as President and Commander in Chief – only Obama could have ordered such a complete “stand down” of the entire U.S. Military. Even after 7 hours (and no one knew it wouldn’t have gone on longer, even much longer) there wasn’t a single military aircraft even on it’s way to help those at Benghazi. Barack “Depraved Indifference” Obama might just as well have personally ordered the deaths of those Americans at Benghazi himself. Meanwhile the scapegoated video maker stays in prison. It should be Obama.

VorDaj on May 10, 2013 at 6:16 PM

You’re giving them the benefit of the doubt. Who can say when there’s BEEN such a coverup. These weren’t car bombs like in Tanzania and Kenya. This, albeit coordinated with RPGs, was stoppable, and it could have been anticipated, and dealt with much better than it was.

Paul-Cincy on May 10, 2013 at 6:28 PM

“This ongoing effort [to compile the talking points] began hours after the attack, when Mitt Romney put out a press release to try to take political advantage out of these deaths, out of the attack in Benghazi, in a move that was maligned even by members of his own party,” Carney said. “And from that day forward there has been this effort to politicize it.”

How do you politicize an event that was politicized from the start? What Carney really meant to say was, “The bastards kept chasing us and we got caught.”

Yet despite being stunned, Petraeus never bothered to tell Congress, or anybody else, that Obama and his minions had deliberately and repeatedly lied to the American public about what happened in Benghazi.

Is Petraeus just another unethical political hack, or was he worried that Obama and/or Hillary would retaliate by leaking details about his extra-marital affair with Paula What’s-her-name?

Jay Carney (and his goose-stepping MSM brown shirts) in September 2012 —– The Republicans are trying to make this a political issue. That’s despicable.

Jay Carney May, 10 2013 —– The Republicans have had this information for awhile. They are only bringing it up now for political purposes.

Jay’s Problem —– ABC released the talking points revisions this morning. They are not Republicans ,or conservatives, or right-wing. Far from it. Is that what the off-the-record “deep background” closed door meeting with the media was all about?

How long until national security and/or Executive Privilege is invoked to head off subpoenas and further testimony and document releases?

farsighted on May 10, 2013 at 6:50 PM

The Carney is reminding press members complicit in the cover-up that in their own judgment, the cover-up was justified by a fear that “folks,” as the President likes to say, are not smart enough to vote the “correct” way, unless lied to.

Back in ’08 I checked out the Open Secrets website, which lists political donations. I was surprised to see how many Halliburton employees, including one Senior Vice President, donated heavily to the Dear Leader campaign.

Soros bought $61 million worth of Halliburton in 2007. But a lot of folks don’t know that (Democrat) President Lyndon Johnson was in bed with the company for decades, or that (Democrat) President Bill Clinton also gave Halli no-bid contracts.

And, Mitt Romney was absolutely correct. It WAS an act of terror and an American administration has NO business covering up for Al Qaeda and its affiliates…WHILE PERSECUTING ANYONE FOR EXERCISING HIS FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS whether a filmmaker named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula or 75 TEA/Patriot groups.

In a shocking affront to the United States Constitution, the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education have joined together to mandate that virtually every college and university in the United States establish unconstitutional speech codes that violate the First Amendment and decades of legal precedent.
