White House Admits it Knew Benghazi was Terrorist Attack Instantaneously


Today, at the White House press gaggle, Jay Carney was asked one – really, just one – question about the emails regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Those emails, to refresh, showed that within two hours of the attacks, the White House had been informed that the action on the ground was a terrorist attack. There was no mention of a YouTube video or a spontaneous demonstration in the emails.

Carney acknowledged today not only that the White House knew, but that it knew “instantaneously”:

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.

Instantaneously. Yet the Obama administration claimed for weeks that they were giving Americans the best available information.

    IMPEECH OBOMA NOW!

    • Texaswede says:

      What! And get Joe Biden as President??? Impeach them both!

    • darkcyder says:

      The act of impeachment alone does not remove a president from office. And the way things are going, it looks like the idiots that comprise our country just might re-elect him even if you did impeach him. My wife and I stare in wonder and awe at the TV when they tell us that Obama is either tied or ahead fo Romney. The only state this makes sense in is California- the human wildlife preserve that would vote for a Democrat if he promised they were all going to drink poison koolaid on tuesday.

      • OleDad48 says:

        Marion Barry, Black mayor of Wash DC, was caught in a hotel room with a prostitute doing drugs. He was convicted of drug possession. Went to prison. Came out. Ran for mayor. And the voters of DC elected him! There is Obama’s base.

    • Jan says:

      DO NOT IMPEACH JUST VOTE THIS MUSLIM OUT OF OFFICE
      THEN THEY ALL WILL BE GONE.
      ROMNEY AND RYAN TO SAVE AMERICA AND TAKE BETTER
      CARE OF OUR MILITARY.

      • Bill says:

        Vote Obama bin Lyin’ out of office, and into jail ! . . . Let’s NOT forget what this man has done to our country !

  2. BUD says:

    THE LIES WILL JUST NEVER END, UNTIL obummer IS JUST A FADING BAD MEMORY,
    OR RATHER A FADING NIGHTMARE.

  3. AlanWH says:

    Hussein LIED. Biden LIED. Hillary LIED. Panetta LIED. Four Americans DIED!

    • Mitch Sagraves says:

      AlanWH, I agree w/your comment. Why are they not in hand cuffs & shackles?!

      • TrueAmerican says:

        Its because although he is our president, he’s still foreign born, therefore in the way that he interprets the law, he has diplomatic immunity as a, call it a “foreign-domestic diplomat.” Not a real term of course, at officially. Maybe unofficially it was created behind closed doors by the oblunder admin, in order to accommodate his very unique position as the 1st foreign born non-U.S. citizen to serve as POTUS. And that is how he gets away with every illegal & unconstitutional thing he does, as according to diplomatic immunity mandate, he just doesn’t know any better

        • Mitch Sagraves says:

          TrueAmerican, Would that mean when the ugly truth really comes out, that he wouldn’t or couldn’t be up for treasonous charges because he isn’t really an American? Is this part of what he has already figured out, making his ineligibility of no consequence?! We are SO up the creek! :’>(

        • John Cherish says:

          No he could be imprisoned as a foriegn spy and tried under espionage laws …there is still a death penalty for espionage

        • Mitch Sagraves says:

          John, Thanks for your reply. There should be consequences for the underhanded things he has done, as well as his whole regime. Methinks & hopes that Billary shot herself in the foot by accepting some of the responsibility for the Benghazi murders. When the real truth starts coming out, I predict they will all start singing like birds & all the tracks will lead back to Obama. We should all insist that he would be prosecuted by the fullest extent of the law. Lord, please hear our prayers……..

        • Phillip_in_TX says:

          Not only to him, but those who “enabled” him to get in the office in the first place. Then those who did nothing about it once they knew. It is not going to be pretty.

        • Mitch Sagraves says:

          Phillip ~ Right on! Think of all the people that would be! He has more enablers than we have fingers & toes, or hair on our heads. I would hope, too, that Moochel would be considered an enabler. I’m sick of her too. I am so disappointed in congress for not going after Bo for all of the things he has done, or not done. We deserve so much more. I would love to have a real leader that we could respect again.

        • Phillip_in_TX says:

          Amen to that!

        • John Cherish says:

          I hear that in texas the UN is coming in to monitor the elections there…like a 3rd world country…Your atty General has told them they would be arrested if they disrupt or come within 100 feet of the polling places sure hope he means this …maybe TEXAS will lead the way should we have a revolt to oust these POS’S

        • Phillip_in_TX says:

          He does mean it. If they disrupt or do anything else to interfere with the election, they will be arrested.

          Here is what I believe is going on. In order to have something become “normal,” do it a little at a time. Then, over a period of time, it is accepted and no longer FEARED. So, having the U.N. Observers “watch our polls,” will eventually lead to them running our elections (aka NWO).

          Glenn Beck talked about (and wrote a book about) the “Overton Window.” He explained how this is done.

        • Phillip_in_TX says:

          People are afraid of a “Race War” plain and simple. At this point, the best way to take care of it, is at the ballot box. However, the truth will come out, and people will pay.

      • young granny says:

        One reason BHO not in shackles because his supporters say, “aw, it’s ok if he makes mistakes, poor fella was kept out of the loop… wasn’t his fault…” and on and on ad nauseum. He heavily relies on the stupidity of his supporters. The bar is so low for measuring this president’s mental acumen that an ant couldn’t limbo under it.

    • Remington 870 says:

      Any decent news media (not many exist) would not waste their time sitting in a room listening to ‘Oppie’ Carnival Carney. The so called national media does not exist and has been replaced with a cabal of Dem operatives intent on destroying America from within.

    • Shiloh0969@aol.com says:

      the us soldier’s didn’t have a fighting chance, because H.Clinton didn’t allow the soldiers to have live ammo for their weapons.

      • TrueAmerican says:

        Not just hillary, obama himself. Nobody knows what the real story is & we probly won’t until President Romney orders a full investigation but this was certainly all a setup for something. Idk what he could hope to achieve, especially this close to the election, because it certainly doesn’t seem to have helped him, its distracting anyone from the election but is in fact making things worse for him. It is a conspiracy where nothing adds up. The security guards weren’t even real security, with no weapons to defend themselves or the consulate, but yet somehow the attack lasted 6hrs? Every other nation that did have a consulate there had pulled out, so not only were they defenseless, but alone as well. Why were we evn there? Nvmnd the needing more security or weapons, y had the administration not pulled them out? Our ppl were left there on purpose to be slaughtered. What is really going on here?

        • John Cherish says:

          It was a plan orchestrated by Obama to have the ambassador abducted to be used as a pawn to enable the release of the Blind Shiek in Egypt ( Something the Muslim brotherhood wanted) it would look like we were trading our ambassador for him ….all along Obama behind it to further his Foriegn policy and bolster his re-elction ….an October surprise for Romney….but it backfired the ambassador was killed in the attempt to abduct him…many are involved in this conspiracy in our Government and it reaches all the way to the president

        • Mitch Sagraves says:

          TrueAmerican, Glenn Beck was saying that there was another gun running scheme happening between O & the Syrian rebels which our ambassador knew about. Have you noticed how anyone that knows too much suddenly dies or gets killed? I still think their are questions that should be answered concerning Andrew Breitbart’s untimely death. There is so much that we don’t know, a lot of blood shed needlessly!

    • JibJab says:

      And they watched it in the situation room via a drone cam.They likely had popcorn & sodas while watching.

      • mimi says:

        JibJab , you are right on they watched are GUYS BE MURDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! then they TRIED to cover it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I SAY GET OUT OF THE PEOPLES OUT NOOOOOW, THOSES LYING PIECE OF CRAP, WE HAVE TO VOTE THESE UNAMERICANS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Phillip_in_TX says:

        I wonder if they sent out for pizza?

  4. Sanpedrojoe says:

    When is the media going to wake up? When are you guys going to wake up?
    This is all about hiding the fact we were stockpiling weapons in Benghazi in the Compound #2, and were negotiating with the Turks on getting them shipped to “friendly” rebel forces in Syria. For what ever reason, the White House, et. al., didn’t want this “known” by the American public.u

    • Right Way says:

      The media are the Democrat Lap Dogs. They will never “wake up” because they too want to push the Liberal Agenda. They are cut from the same cloth.

    • Jim says:

      And you know this is true because????
      Did the voices in your head tell you, or was it a secret transmission to your tin foil hat?

  5. PIZZAWHISPERER says:

    SURPRISE!!!!!!!

  6. After all,if you can’t trust the White House and Carney, who can you trust? LOL.

  7. Benton Bain says:

    Obama’s whole life is a LIE!!!

    • DOOMED says:

      Question: “Mr. Obama, since YOU knew within minutess that the attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi WAS in FACT a terrorest action, why did you disregard and/or dismiss that intelligence and continue campaigning? We (the American public) have to assume that raising money for your reelection was (and still is) MORE importent than the four AMERICAN lives lost.
      Answer: American lives mean nothing to the islam muslim world or to me. I and we (the islamic muslim world) feel that the more Americans killed, the better off the muslim world is, especially to me, since I am a true muslim and I am anti-American. My HOPE is to destroy America from within and CHANGE America into another muslim state where we can degrade all women and kill whoever we want especially Christians. That was and still is my HOPE for CHANGE for America.

      • rascallyrabbit says:

        Another question that MUST be asked front and center is WHY there was no rescue attempt at all when we have special troops just for that scenario that could have been on scene within a couple of hours at most.

        • Evermyrtle says:

          They had their reasons but don’t expect them to tell them.

        • DOOMED says:

          Ovomits reason was because no muslim lives were at stake except for those involved and he didn’t want harm comming to his muslim brotherhood. Don’t forget, Ovomit IS anti-American!

        • OldDad48 says:

          Yes, like an air strike the weekend before the election for bragging rights on “bringing them to justice.” Wag the Dog in real time.

        • soljerblue says:

          And it really is ironic, when you think about it. Had Obama been paying attention, he could have ordered the troops in in time to save those lives, Chris Stevens and the others, and come off looking a lot better even than he did with the Bin Laden take-down. Quick action, nick of time, he could have turned the election around perhaps, and insured a second term. Instead, he does what he always does — disengage, vote ‘present’, the Americans die, and Obama and his whole sorry bunch lie in their teeth about it.

          And when the truth comes out…

        • rascallyrabbit says:

          Actually, that would be a good short tact for Romney to take, “on Benghazi, Obama didn’t even vote “present”.”

        • Phillip_in_TX says:

          Remember when “it’s not my fault Obama” was running for President? And, Hillary’s statement about the 3:00 am phone call? They turned the phone “off.”

        • soljerblue says:

          Good point!

        • John Cherish says:

          The truth might be that Obama was orchestrating the abuduction of the ambassador…so that he could trade the blind shiek for him as an October surprise for the Romney Campaign …but the ambassador was killed …so a cover story had to be devised to cover his azz …thus the film story…the real reason this all happened was to further Obama’s political agenda

        • soljerblue says:

          Assuming there’s some truth to that, in my mind that would more or less prove what an incompetent boob Obama really is — and the nincompoops around him. To think that releasing the blind sheik would resonate with enough voters to change the course of the campaign AS OPPOSED to rescuing four Americans from the clutches of a bunch of trigger happy musloids. Well, that just kinda proves what a clueless idiot this guy is.
          Let me jump back here to the Osama bin Laden “moment” — Obama was actually on the golf course when the window came open to send in the SEALS. It’s been put about in more than one place that the national security team had had three previous chances to get OBL, and Obama had rejected all three. So this time, the team — including Hillary, Leon Panetta, and some others — simply went ahead and ordered the SEALS in, and only then did they bother to tell the Termite-in-Chief.
          Too bad they didn’t do the same thing this time.

        • John Cherish says:

          I do believe this is closer to the truth than the “film caused this”…. the story about this was live on Egyptian television …but now it seems youtube has scrubbed the video from their web site…I guess they are trying to protect the president …I have seen the vdeo on another website and the annoucer was claiming Obama was fully involved with this plan on the Sheik

      • pmxpilot says:

        If this administration wouldn’t be such strangers to ‘Honor’ and ‘Shame’ they would have resigned as a group. Since they did not go voluntarily, they all need to be FIRED! … and that’s why we have elections!

      • Roger's remarks says:

        Yes, and isn’t it amazing many “women” still prefer Obama? It is very curious why the possibility of being degraded and diminished are less important than government paid for contraceptives. What has this country come to???

      • Imprimis77 says:

        If anyone doubts this, please check out any country being headed by an Islamic Government…Even throughout history the “infidel” (that’s anyone not Islamic) is killed, maimed or enslaved …at the very least, treated as a 2nd class citizen who pays the taxes while the Islamics do not. There is so much information out there and it would behoove you useful idiots, whomever you are to do some homework…particularly you gay people who insist on voting on one social issue (gayness)…Christianity tolerates, laws solidify but Islam….?

      • Fuzzerrelli says:

        Here is what fata** Panetta gives as an excuse(did I say excuse, that can’t be right cause there is no excuse for watching American’s get slaughtered). He say’s that they were collecting intel in which they felt there was not enough of to send our soldiers into harm’s way. I guess he has been out of the military for too long because these situations are exactly what our special op’s military are trained for. Needless to say anyone in the military would and should have been ready to go in there to help and save anyone in there. What they are eluding is the fact that nobody was dead until the second round of fire that came a couple of hours later. There was plenty of time to send in special forces troops for back-up to prevent those killings. Now I am not one of those general’s or people in the situation room so I would be told I don’t no enough to make that kind of call, but I do have common sense enough to know I have the best standing ready to go in and rescue them. Also, as far as making decisions about who I am shooting at outside the building, Obama didn’t have any problem having drone’s fly allover bombing shelters where Al Queda was while not worrying about who else would get killed in the process. What was it that Amb.Steven’s know that Obama didn’t want the rest of us to know, maybe the fact that Al Queda is not on their heels but are stronger than before the killing of OBL. Obama should be imprisoned for the death’s of those American’s do to the fact that he held our forces from going in for back-up. Semper Fi!

    • nans says:

      AND GUESS THIS SOB HAS RECLAIMED THE ELECTORAL VOTE, UNBELIEVABLE!!!

      • Bill says:

        Don’t believe the polls. . . This whole election process is like being stuck in a “Political Theme Park” ! . . . I keep getting the erie feeling that I’m Jim Carey in “The Truman Show” ! . . . . We as Americans need to start ACTING like Americans !

    • Joanne Long says:

      I don’t understand why we can’t stop him? And why he isn’t in jail?

    • american joe says:

      This (Ovomit) administration is a embrassment to the entire world and if the decisions (or lack thereof) is any indication of things to come; even if or when Martial law is imposed, then we Americans CAN count on our military to be on the side of the Constitution as evidenced by the two former Navy SEALS disobeying orders from the top a$$hole in the Oval Office NOT TO RENDER help in Benghazi. Our men and women in uniform WILL fight to oppose MArtial law. Ovomit, if you think you can distroy OUR country with illegal UN thugs occupying U.S. soil…think again. All your dirty filthy (blue-helmet) muslim “peace-keeper” thugs WILL be shot by US ARMED Americans and our ARMED Forces. Count on it!!!

  8. caskinner says:

    This administration can’t be trusted. Too bad we can’t asked the 4 dead Americans in Benghazi what they think. Obama and Clinton are monsters. I can’t imagine watching what was happening in real time and not doing anything to try and help these people. This is criminal.

    • TheSunDidIt says:

      Wonder how they’d vote now? By the way, why has the “gay community” failed to defend their own (the ambassador) and demand justice? I don’t like “gay” folk but, ANY President is responsible for the safety of ALL our citizens; even if he/she doesn’t like them. So, why is this President being given a pass for not protecting this ambassador?

      • With Obama and his adminstration supporting Sharia Law how does that fair with the gay community?

        • Bill says:

          I have asked this question a hundred times on sites where the Gay community show up. . . Never rec’d a answer ! . . . They are the number ONE enemy of Islam, and will be the first to go. . . . They always ask if I will boycott The Homo Depot, JCP, etc.. . . The answer is yes ! . . While I feel that they are the same as me “peoplewise”, I will never support the Gay agenda. . . . I think if people would just quit watching “The Simpsons”, we would not have nearly as many “Homersexuals” ! . . . lol

      • caskinner says:

        Amb Stevens was a human being. I absolutely disagree with the gay lifestyle but he still should not have been treated the way he was!

    • Remington 870 says:

      We have a communist occupying the White House and can only expect him and fellow communists letting American troops be killed and do nothing to help. Wake up America, Obama is a communist (don’t believe me) and is never to be trusted.

      • Bill says:

        Right you are ! . . . Obama bin Lyin’, and America’s been buyin’ !
        A drug dealer, a Muslim, and a Communist go into this bar. . . The bartender walks over and says, “What can I get for you Mr. President ?” . . . ‘Bout sums it up, doesn’t it ?

  9. BUD says:

    THE AMAZING PART IN ALL THE ISSUES WE FACE TODAY, IS HOW CAN HALF OF AMERICA STILL THINK THAT obummer IS DOING A GOOD JOB, AND EVEN REMOTELY CONSIDER HIM FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS ??? WHERE HAVE THE GOOD MINDS GONE?

    • Right Way says:

      That half are standing lines, Occupying (because they don’t work) and getting paid for it by Barry. We don’t have time to attend rallies, because we are at work paying for the a_ _ Holes that want to sit on the front stoop and wait for “they check”

    • wabobs144 says:

      It’s all an illusion! The sad thing is, if they are not brought to justice, we will have to pay and protect them for the rest of their lives! How is that even remotely fair?

      • Phillip_in_TX says:

        Not anymore. Secret Service protection is limited to 10 years once someone leaves office. Now, as for the retirement pay, “it’s not my fault Obama” should have to forfeit that to repay the tax payers for all the “vacations” he and the family took.

    • ddm says:

      DOWN THE DRAIN!

    • bobs36hotrod says:

      Hey BUD, I say that all the time. What happened to all the American people that support OBAMA. My Daughter said to me, that OBAMA is the ANTI- CHRIST. What do you and all the good Americans think. ??
      BOB

      • mimi says:

        bobs36hotrod, your DAUGHTER IS ONE SMART GIRL, VOTE FOR THE REAL AMERICAN MITT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WILL GET OUR AMERICA BACK ON IT’S FEET, OBUMMER DOESN’T WANT OUR AMERICAN TO BE THE STRONG COUNTEY IT IS, WAKE UP AMERICAN WHO LOVE THIS GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS, WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Phillip_in_TX says:

      There is a medical term for that: “Cranial Rectal Inversion.”

  10. smith says:

    Of course, the liar in chief was in charge of the info going out.

  11. del says:

    Great….what an honest group of aholes leading our country

  12. BUD says:

    WHEN I LOOK AT ALL THE PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATES, I PRESENTLY SEE ONLY CAREER POLITICIANS THAT DON’T HAVE IN THEIR HEARTS WHAT IS BEST FOR AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I SEE BLEEDING HEARTS AND PEOPLE THAT LIE TO US AMERICANS. FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE BEFORE I DIE, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOMEONE AS PRESIDENT THAT WOULD PUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FIRST. INSTEAD OF SENDING ALL OUR MONEY AND RESOURCES TO OTHER COUNTRIES, I WOULD RATHER SEE AMERICA’S MONEY AND RESOURCES SPENT ON AMERICANS. GET THE STREET PEOPLE OFF THE STREET, GET THE WELFARE PEOPLE OFF THE WELFARE, GET THE UNEMPLOYED RE-EMPLOYED SO ALL THESE PEOPLE CAN LIVE AS PROUD AMERICANS AND PROSPER AND THEN THEY WILL ALL BE CONTRIBUTING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. WE NEED SOMEBODY THAT IS STRONG, AND DETERMINED TO MAKE AMERICA #1 IN THE WORLD AGAIN, AND THIS PERSON NEEDS TO NOT BE AFRAID TO DISAPPOINT SOME BLEEDING HEART GROUPS THAT ARE TRYING TO SAVE THE WORLD AFAR, BUT THEY CARE NOT ABOUT YOUNG AND OLD AMERICANS THAT SLEEP WITHOUT A ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS OR THAT GO TO SLEEP HUNGRY AT NIGHT. I BELIEVE WE NEED SOMEONE THAT IS JUST LIKE DONALD TRUMP, THAT WILL DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR AMERICA FIRST AND IS NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK UP AND RUFFLE SOME FEATHERS WHEN THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. WHEN WE HAVE MONEY LEFT OVER FROM SOLVING AMERICA’S PROBLEMS, THEN WE CAN START SENDING SOME OF THE EXCESS MONEY AND RESOURCES ABROAD. THAT INCLUDES ELIMINATING THE FEDERAL DEBT AND BALANCING THE FEDERAL BUDGET FIRST.

    • Jim says:

      AND IF I PUT THIS TOOTH UNDER MY PILLOW TONIGHT, THE TOOTH FAIRY WILL COME DURING THE NIGHT AND LEAVE ME A QUARTER.

      • Bill says:

        Well if Obama was the Tooth Fairy, He’d come and take your tooth, you’d get nothing for it, and you would be expected to donate a tooth per week to the toothless. . . . when you run out of teeth, you’d be charged a quarter penalty and told how well off you were not to need toothpaste anymore !

  13. TheSunDidIt says:

    If this is the standard for Presidents, then the nation needs to apologize to Nixon and he should be exonerated for all “crimes” which are, apparently, “OK” nowadays. Folks, the press was all over Nixon for Watergate and the scandal. “he said bad words” was one of the big “sins” of Nixon. He said them about the press mostly. I would have to agree with his assessment of the press. To say they’re worthless is to give them too much importance.

  14. Texaswede says:

    “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”- Obama

    Obama and his staff were trying to take the heat off the muslims for killing four Americans by claiming it was OUR fault to let a silly film out that so enraged the muslim crowds to murder spontaneously. Of course it was a well planned attack with firepower not usually brought to a demonstration. And Obummer and his cronies still LIED to us about the entire episode. To add insult to injury, Obama explained the four deaths of Americans weren’t “optimal”! I pray people will wake up that the fox has been in the henhouse for 4 years! Vote this POS out on election Day!

  15. angelkisz says:

    What I wish to know is what the people need to do to force the media to start talking the re talk. Anyone have any suggestions? If don’t force them to start telling the truth and letting folks know what is really going on with how Obama is lying and trying to cover up this mess , how is he to be defeated?

    • Rabelrouser says:

      “What I wish to know is what the people need to do to force the media to start talking the re talk.” This is where the heart of the problem lies, with the people. Untill they start denying dollars to their advertisers the media will continue the coverup.
      But do the people really want to go that far? It is up to the people, by the way, thats you.

    • Phillip_in_TX says:

      We cannot force them to tell the truth. What we can do is STOP watching and listening to anything they say. And, we can tell the truth to anyone who will listen.
      Why do you think magazines and newspapers are either giving up their “print” editions or going out of business? Because we don’t believe their crap and will seek out the truth.
