Obama and his cronies lied to the American People for weeks about what really happened, and are still lying to us. The Administration, and the corrupt media, tried their best, unsuccessfully, to cover-up Obama’s deception and recklessness, and make it all go away, but the New Media would not allow that to happen.
So I guess the only question left is.. Who is Obama going to find to throw under the bus for the latest in a long string of Obama failures?
The White House is declining to say when President Barack Obama first learned of three e-mails that the State Department sent to the White House on Sept. 11, 2012, directly notifying the Executive Office of the President that the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was under attack, that U.S. Amb. Chris Stevens was at the Benghazi mission at the time of the attack, and that the group Ansar al-Sharia had taken credit for the attack.
The White House also declined to say when the president first met with the National Security Council after the Benghazi attack.
“I have been asked by one of our spokespeople to relay ‘that we decline to comment,’” said White House National Security Staff aide Debbie Bird in a written response to CNSNews.com.
CNSNews.com had asked Bird: 1) “When did the President first meet with the National Security Council after the Benghazi attack on 9/11/12?” 2) “When did White House staff first discuss the substance of the e-mails that went to the White House with the President or with the National Security Advisor?”
Carney also took a question about the e-mails today during a press gaggle held aboard Air Force One at 9:34 a.m. A reporter asked: “Jay, there are some emails that have emerged, which suggest that the White House and other areas of the government were told within hours of the Benghazi attack that an extremist group had claimed responsibility. How is that compatible with the idea that it was a spontaneous attack?”
Carney downplayed the significance of the State Department emails.
“There were emails about all sorts of information that was becoming available in the aftermath of the attack,” Carney said. “The email you’re referring to was an open-source, unclassified email referring to an assertion made on a social media site that everyone in this room had access to and knew about instantaneously. There was a variety of information coming in.
“The whole point of an intelligence community and what they do is to assess strands of information and make judgments about what happened and who was responsible,” said Carney, “and I would refer you to what we’ve already said about, and what the DNI [Director of National Intelligence] has already said about, the initial assessments of the intelligence community, and the fact that throughout this process, I and others made very clear that our preliminary assessments were preliminary, that an investigation was underway, and that as more facts became available, we would make the American people aware of them.
“Again,” said Carney, “this was an open-source, unclassified email about a posting on a Facebook site. I would also note I think that within a few hours, that organization itself claimed that it had not been responsible. Neither should be taken as fact. That’s why there’s an investigation underway.”
The NSC is chaired by the president, and includes Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. A NSC meeting would allow the leader of the intelligence community to communicate directly with the leader of the State Department in the presence of the president and for all of them to weigh any conflicting information.
The three emails in question, which were obtained by CBS News, were sent by the State Department to various government officials, including two officials in the Executive Office of the President, on Sept. 11, 2012, while the attack on the Benghazi was taking place and immediately after it had taken place.
Each of the emails has been redacted so that the suffixes of most of the email addresses are intact—showing where the people who sent them and received them work—but the prefixes are blacked out, so the personal identities of the senders and receivers is obscured.
The first email was sent by a State Department officials at 4:05 PM on Sept. 11, 2012. It carries the subject line: “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack.” The text of the email says: “The Regional Security Officer reports the diplomatic mission is under attack. Embassy Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots, explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM [Chief of Mission] personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support.”
This email went to at least 32 other officials in the State Deparment. It also went to an official at the office of the Director of National Intelligence, to someone at the FBI, and to someone at the Defense Department. It also went to two officials at the White House.
A State Department official sent out a second email to the same list of recipients 49 minutes later at 4:54 PM. The subject line on this email said: U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi.” The subject line said: “Embassy Tripoli reports the firing at the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi has stopped and the compound has been cleared. A response is on the site attempting to locate COM personnel.
A State Department official sent out a third email at 6:07 PM on Sept. 11, 2012—a little over two hours after the first email went out. This email went to a different set of recipients, but still included two officials at the White House. The subject line on this email was: “Ansal al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack.” The text said: “Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.”
None of the emails said anything about a YouTube video or a spontaneous demonstrations at the U.S. mission in Benghazi.
Five days after the State Department sent these emails to the White House, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice went on national television programs and told the nation that the administration believed that what had happened in Benghazi had started as a spontaneous protest against a video that had been posted on YouTube.
“But based on the best information we have to date,” Rice said on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” “what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what, it began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo, where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy sparked by this hateful video.”
“We do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned,” said Rice.
The day after the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, the president traveled to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.
