Jay Carney: Benghazi Happened A Long Time Ago


Responding to questions about allegations that the Federal government is preventing whistle-blowers from coming forward with new information concerning the terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, in September, White House Press spokesman Jay Carney suggested that the controversy was dated.

“Let’s be clear,” said Carney. “Benghazi happened a long time ago. We are unaware of any agency blocking an employee who would like to appear before Congress to provide information related to Benghazi.”

    No Doubt. Exactly as no one was alerted about an unusual “peaceful protest” in the Benghazi area just before the election in November. ALL our senior and Executive executionists in the War Room were AWOL. AWOL in time of what, in any other presidency would have been recognizable as a crisis requiring the highest level decisions and responses. One in which our highest level diplomatic corps’ lives were in jeopardy, state secrets, encryption devices, their codes and personnel were up for grabs by “possibly” enemy agents, boundaries were breached by “peaceful” high explosive armaments, cameras visualized armed and shooting “peaceful” demonstrators, a grievously wounded (maybe, dead ambassador), desperate calls in military terms and usage for assistance, commanders over foreign “quick response” teams seeking orders to “Go!” (who got “Stand down!” responses).

    By the way … , What level of authority in such a situation is required to command such an order?

    Ho-hum … jis’ ‘nother day ‘n Obombusville. And, … they want us to think, understand that in other (all) circumstances, thanks to technology, DA PREZZ is always available on demand, able to work and keep abreast of circumstances, situations and requirements of “The Job”? Maybe we should appoint a position of “ad hoc” authority for when the responsible bodies are AWOL?

    Hey, brain dead Carney. Pearl Harbor happened a long time ago. Benghazi happened a few months ago. Is there intelligent life in the Obama regime? Obviously not. They are so stupid they’ll make any lame brained claim to cover up their criminal acts.
