If you watched the hearing yesterday you know that there were definitely requests for more security in Benghazi, yet Biden claimed tonight that wasn’t the case at all. He said the administration was never told that they needed more security in Benghazi and also blamed intelligence on their ever changing story on what happened on 9/11:

Wow. Did you see Paul Ryan’s face when he said that? That’s either an outright lie or massive incompetence – take your pick. Either way, Bolton is right to say this administration shouldn’t be left alone in the room with our national security.

    To be fair, I thought Biden said that the White House was not aware of any requests for additional security, which is essentially a ‘straw man’ argument as requests for additional security DO NOT go through the White House.

    • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

      yep- and it’s still their failure because they control their State Dept.

      • mike3e4r7

        Exactly!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elee-Zimmerman/1186792881 Elee Zimmerman

        I never said it wasn’t. I was simply trying to correct what I believe was a misquote.

    • WordsFailMe

      I think Biden said the White Housed received no requests.

      I don’t think he said the White House never receives any such requests from State so I will be unable to speak on that topic.

      Biden is a liar and an Obama bootlicker. In fact, Biden is never real picky about a boot as long as he can lick one, ass pointed toward heaven like his muslim master..

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elee-Zimmerman/1186792881 Elee Zimmerman

        Right. That’s precisely what Biden said. I said that the White House doesn’t receive these requests b/c they don’t. Those requests are given to the State Department.

        • WordsFailMe

          Im a lttle rummy I was thinking we were probably on the same page It was a good one elee and a pretty good day. Thanks!

      You make a good point but that’s the same, old “plausible deniability” card they always play. Any time something blows up with this administration, they pull that out and it’s starting to sound like a 5-year old who keeps saying, “nobody told me not to poop in the pool”. This administration is just flat-out incompetent.

  • librtifirst

    That was a ridiculous claim. A green beret col. testified that he made the requests, and they were denied by the State Dept. Biden can claim that they didn’t know about it, but he cannot claim that the O admin did not reject the requests. Quote: “They told us to quit asking”.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elee-Zimmerman/1186792881 Elee Zimmerman

      Again, the State Dept. denied the requests, not the White House. Yes, one would hope that the State Dept. would’ve shared information regarding the requests with the White House, but you gotta remember that this is Amateur Hour we’re dealing with.

      • librtifirst

        Isn’t Hiltlary head of the State Dept., and part of the Obummer admin? I suppose that the state department may have made this decision without Hitlary’s approval, and therefore there is a disconnect from the Obummer admin.

        Either way, it is a big deal, and I don’t see this possible disconnect as any sort of excuse for the 0 admin.

    “Why did your administration say there were? Biden said there is an investigation but the intelligence community said there had been a protest. The intelligence community says now that there was no protest in Benghazi and they never said there was. Biden also said that Washington did not know that the field officers wanted more security in Libya. Lt. Col. Andrew Wood and Eric Nordstrom both testified to the House of their multiple requests for security, and denial of same.” -PJmedia Bryan Preston – today

    Plugs was a perfect mini dear leader. He lied every time he opened his disgusting evil mouth.

      It was incomprehensible!

    “WE will get to the bottom of this”….Vice President of the Untied States of America, Most Powerful Nation on planet Earth~

    FBI Investigators are dispatched to Benghazi almost 2 weeks AFTER the FANATICAL RADICAL MUSLIM BROTHERHOODY’s/AL QUEDA CRAZIES RAPED AND TORE APART AND MURDERED 4 American Citizens….. spend less than 24 hours investigating….

    “WE will get to the bottom of this”……………..Remember the Alamo…Remember Fast and Furious….Remember “O’Bama bin Lyin’s last GOLF SCORE!!!!!

    Disgusting meat socks………………………

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elee-Zimmerman/1186792881 Elee Zimmerman

      FBI investigators didn’t get to Benghazi until 3 weeks later.

  • http://twitter.com/DanaZZGarcia Dana Garcia

    Would such messages go beyond Hillary’s State Dept.?? What’s the norm for requests of that nature?

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      Even if it didn’t (I don’t know, though she would be entrusted to carry out Obama’s policies), did Biden totally miss the hearing where it was clearly claimed that more security was requested prior to the attack?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elee-Zimmerman/1186792881 Elee Zimmerman

      No, most likely they wouldn’t. That’s why I said at the start of this thread that Biden created a ‘straw man’ argument. It wouldn’t be normal for those requests — so far as I know — to be shared DIRECTLY with the White House, though I would imagine that there would be some reporting process where the information is shared with the Odministration and, quite probably, the greater government at large. It appears that some in the House were aware of the security denials, that’s principally why I make that case.

  • aussieguy64

    You smell that? I smell it too. It’s called BS.

    It cost 4 American lives. It was preventable…And that’s what makes this whole situation intolerable.

    • michael carpenter

      Add the cover up!

  • opinionatedhermit

    Being the last to know what the hell is going on … is what happens when you lead from behind ……

    • michael carpenter

      well said!!

  • mike3e4r7

    And he claims that their story changed as the intelligence changed. Well, there was intelligence within 24 hours that the Benghazi attack was not a protest but a terrorist attack, and their story stayed the same for weeks. I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but we know Obama/Biden either lied during those weeks or were dangerously negligent. We all know what happened. These immoral bastards lied about it as long as they could because nothing matters more to them than their political fortunes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elee-Zimmerman/1186792881 Elee Zimmerman

      Precisely. Great analysis. If their story changed, why didn’t it follow the same timeline? Plus, why are there members of the Odministration and the Showbama campaign still insisting (as of yesterday) that the YouTube video contributed to the event?

  • Nukeman60

    You have to be fair to Biden. He was holed up in seclusion for a week, so he was unable to see the hearings. After all, it took him a long time to get used to the altitude of Kentucky. Therefore, he was allowed to lie.

    As Crazy Joe himself would say, “It’s not a lie if no one calls you on it within 15 minutes.”

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elee-Zimmerman/1186792881 Elee Zimmerman

      Yeah, that’s like the three-second rule at our dinner table, too. LOL!

  • librtifirst

    Now we have another assassination in Yemen.

  • Yazz55

    Did Biden actually say anything that is factually correct?

    OOOPS, pardon me, democrats can say anything, which instantly becomes the truth. And the truth can be changed when the obamessiah or Biden says so.

  • Rocco11

    Biden looked like he spent some time in Obama’s Choom Van before the debate, I’ve never seen anything like it. He looked like a mental patient….

  • Susitna

    If he didn’t know that the Embassy had requested help, than he has been drunken in the last month trying to get sober for the debate. And, if he lied, he is a coward bastard.

  • wodiej

    The lies won’t pass muster this time. The jig is up. There has been too much incompetence to keep pushing the meme “it’s not my fault”. Now this Libya tragedy is the fault of the State Dept/intelligence. They have tried to blame Republicans for funding being reduced but the bill they are talking about did not affect the lack of security in Libya. They are scrambling to try to save their hide.

    The bogus jobs numbers are coming under scrutiny too because unemployment claims had such a big drop. If they did it only means that a bunch of long term unemployed still cannot find jobs and their unemployment ran out.

    We also had another terrorist attack in Yemen this week and another security person killed.

    These incidents are happening one right after another and there is no way to lie their way out of so many and do it quickly.

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    To me, this was the heart of the whole debate. This is a total lie and I’m sure the intelligence services (especially the CIA) are going to have a field day with this comment. And I know Biden knows it was a lie, too. Now the real question is, will the mainstream media challenge Biden on this today? This is a very, very, big deal and it’s going to blow up in Biden and Obama’s face. Either they prove their accusation that the intel was bad (which would be shameful in and of itself), or they’re going to have to just come clean and say they were wrong. Either way it looks bad for Obama and it should, given how poorly they’ve handled this over the past month.

  • ryanomaniac

    Boy, if you start throwing the CIA and others in intelligence under the bus you had better watch out. I wouldn’t be surprised if some wiretap or video comes out of Obama smoking crack and Biden lighting it for him. Nothing good can come of that. Bad move. Ask JFK.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Even now they remain in denial and a cover up?

    They’ve been exposed. For him to say such a lie on the national forum is so wrong… extreme evidence of why they need to be kicked out of office (and arrested).

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rich-Wojcik/1252071956 Rich Wojcik

    IT IS NOT FUNNY _ lying, interrupting, lying, interrupting and lying again!!!
    Too bad Ryan wasn’t watching his grimaces – he might have said: I IT NOT FUNNY when you ruin our country and cover it with lies”…
    What an oaf Biden is.

  • PhillyCon

    Wasn’t Biden supposed to be the adult in the room? His 30 years on the foreign affairs committee notwithstanding.

    I’m not fooled by the crazy uncle routine: LIE.

  • kong1967

    It’s unbelievable how the Obama team still pushes lies that have already been proven to be false. Idiots. If you tell a lie often enough it becomes true. Appalling, and people should realize what this says Obama thinks about our intelligence.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    obama’s corrupt administration will get to the bottom of the Benghazi tragedy a few years after hell freezes over…..maybe!!!!!!!!
