As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

“These Protests Were in Reaction to a Video”

Just something to keep in mind as you hear people testify during the House Oversight Committee hearing today that they knew immediately Benghazi was terrorism.

From the briefing by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on September 14, 2012.

    • Carney is just doing his job. Don’t blame him.
      Hillary, Obama, Susan Rice…they knew the difference.
      Carney is a spokesperson. He’s the mouthpiece.

          • Nuts. I just remembered I can’t. My CPU is in the shop, and I’m using my son’s laptop. I’d plug in my external drives but I don’t want to mess with this computer right now.

        • From what I’ve heard, his arrest had nothing to do with the video, in spite of the White House conveniently connecting the two. The video maker apparently violated his parole by using a different name or something. But it still gives the White House the high ground by making it look like he was put behind bars over the video that they claim caused four American deaths.

          (And Obama is #65 — at least not higher — on Reader’s Digest’s list of 100 most trustworthy people. Michelle is slightly higher. # 1 — Tom Hanks — who got paid for one of the top 100 Whoppers of All Time when he intoned on a campaign video that “Obama will not dwell in blame.”)

        • Citing a lengthy pattern of deception, U.S. Central District Chief Magistrate Judge Suzanne Segal said Nakoula Basseley Nakoula should be held after officials said he violated his probation from a 2010 check fraud conviction.

          “The court has a lack of trust in this defendant at this time,” Segal said.

          Nakoula, 55, was arrested Thursday. He had eight probation violations, including lying to his probation officers and using aliases, and he might face new charges that carry a maximum two-year prison term, authorities said. Nakoula will remain behind bars until another hearing where a judge will rule if he broke the terms of his probation.


          After his 2010 conviction, Nakoula was sentenced to 21 months in prison and was barred from using computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer.


  1. My biggest problem is what the president was doing that night. Sleeping in order to prepare for a campaign trip to Vegas.

    That is a MICROCOSM of what is wrong with this President. He is always campaigning, or thinking about campaigning or planning on campaigning.

    Never on leadership or management

    • I was just reading the time line on another site before coming here. The attack started sometime after 3 p.m. EST, and Obama was notified around 5 p.m. by Dempsey and Panetta at their briefing with him. After that, nothing was related to Obama by either Defense, State or any other body. And of course, he was not on it.

      • Remember…Obama’s meeting with Panetta and Dempsey had nothing to do with the attack. It was already on the official schedule at the start of the day. It was coincidence.
        but after they met they never spoke with him or Hillary again until the next day.

        Leadership my A$$

  2. A new perspective I have from reading Ted Cruz’s post on NRO is that the Benghazi attack lasted for seven and a half hours. It’s impossible that no rescue could have been attempted in that long a period of time.

  3. Thanks Keith, I’m going to spread is video far and wide today, along with Hillary standing in front of coffins and lying to the American people.

  4. When you start down the path to being a pathological liar your entire
    career it envolves too many people and you can’t keep the lies straight.
    How much can Sparky take spineless little twit!
