Sooooo . . . let me get this straight.

This was a spontaneous attack to which the NYT sent a reporter in advance?

Riiiiight!

I’m pretty sure that last one is true.

Nobody is angrier than Obama to hear this, but what difference, at this point, does it make? … (that the NYT was corresponding with the terrorists during their lengthy attack of the facility and the murder of 4 Americans).

Unmitigated bullshit.

Ward Cleaver on January 1, 2014 at 3:21 AM

ref: It all depends on what your definition of “is” is. 😯

The nyt is perfectly legitimate in claiming they had a reporter on scene in Benghazi. The fact that this person probably was hired later on, after the attack, has not been established one way or the other.

Thus, the nyt has near perfect ‘cover’ (as in CYA) for the likes of Richard Grenell, and nyt itself, for the recent crop of pro-Hillary Benghazi stories that blew up in the nyt face.

Eventually, the proven “inaccurate pro-Hillary coverage” will be blamed on this late hired on-scene nyt jounalistdisposable tool.

I think a more plasible senario is the Obama WH called the NYT which in turn called the Mid East desk to see who they had in that region. And that guy called his cousin in Egypt, and there you go. “On the scene”.
Talking to the attackers (over the phone).

Hey, I read about that on the innertubes……

Scooby-Doo IS a master detective……

It just HAS to be true!!

The Left, compounding a lie with a NEW lie?

Color me numbingly shocked.

Just another game called muddying the waters, played all the time by the regime.
Bent Axel to NYT: Didn’t you guys have a reporter over there….I thought so…

rodguy911 on January 1, 2014 at 9:35 AM

I haven’t read the comments but how come we are just finding this little nugget out now? I call B.S..

Cindy Munford on January 1, 2014 at 9:54 AM

Sooo…. The NYT had a reporter “on scene” in September 2012, and we’re just now finding out about this in 2014 because … what was that reason again?

Gearbox on January 1, 2014 at 10:37 AM

NBC also now claims it had a reporter in the Texas School Book Depository helping Oswalt aim his rifle on November 22, 1963 ………….. See, they have invented the very first time machine.

SC.Charlie on January 1, 2014 at 11:23 AM

And I needed ANOTHER reason to hate these *&^%$%^&*( people? Nice way to start a new yea.

Lies stacking up like the a poker chip Tower of Babel.

Lies upon lies built on a foundation of prevarication.

O-world, where nothing means anything, period.

profitsbeard on January 1, 2014 at 5:49 PM

And all the attackers said “DEATH TO AMERICANS FOR THE YOUTUBE VIDEO!!!”

Marcola on January 1, 2014 at 6:11 PM

The NYT is claiming they revealed they had a reporter there in their original articles. In other words, this is not news…according to them.

@RichardGrenell we had a reporter on the scene talking to the attackers instigating the rape and murder of Ambassador Stevens during the attack- still invaluable

Most likely version.

Wasn’t it Andy Rowley, the same dude who broke the Harry Reid pederastry story?

Christien on January 1, 2014 at 11:18 PM

I wonder how many Americans the NYT reporter killed?

unclesmrgol on January 2, 2014 at 7:33 PM

Questions:
Who is this reporter?
If he’s an American, why was he not arrested/interrogated?
Will this repoter testify before Congress?
Will he come foward at all?
If not, why not?
Given the hatred towards the West generated by “that video”, why did the raging attackers NOT turn on a person employed by Americans, if not an American himself?
Why would anyone believe anything the NYT ever says?

Kenz on January 3, 2014 at 12:06 AM

Did he have to dodge sniper fire with Killery?

It is obvious to a blind snake.
The NYT is warming up the ink in preparation for Killery’s run for POTUS/TOTUS.
She’ll need COVER and lots of it from every angle imaginable.

I’ll pose the first question for Her Majesty.
Might you list your most worthy achievements as Secretary of State under King Putt.
Her answering that single question will take about three seconds.

Seriously … think about her ENTIRE career in govenment … what have you got? It is similar to what Carvell said about her ‘Blue Dress’ husband, “There is no there, there.”
