This part of Obama’s “have you no shame speech” is particularly galling to me:
Obama: The day after the attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people and the world that we were going to find out exactly what happened. That this was an act of terror. And I also said that we were going to hunt down those who committed this crime.
How’s that hunt going, eight months later, Mr President?
Oh, that’s right – the FBI released photos of three of the “protesters” in front of the consulate, *last week* and asked for help identifying the rascals.
Awesome detective work, there.
One of the things Republicans are going to be focused on during the hearing, Wednesday, is whether the regime’s bogus talking points impeded the FBI’s investigation in the days and weeks following the attack.
Said Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), last week:
“We all now know that what Susan Rice said was demonstrably false, Gowdy noted. “There’s not a person left in the Western hemisphere that believes that what she said was accurate. The question is whether she was just grossly negligent or there was an intentional misleading, and secondarily, there remains the prospect that this administration’s decision to blame it on a video may have actually may have impacted negatively on our ability to get answers in the aftermath.”
Meanwhile, even TODAY (!) Jay Carney regurgitated the regime’s putrid talking point about what our heroic president “made clear from the very onset in the wake of Benghazi”. Carney claimed, once again that Obama “wanted action taken to ensure that we found out who was responsible, and that they were brought to justice.”
This was the last part of a long winded non-answer to Fox News’ Ed Henry’s question regarding Gregory Hicks’ charge that U.S. Special Forces were told “you can’t go” to Benghazi during the attacks.
As you know, Carney stated, “the Accountability Review Board was led by two men of unimpeachable expertise and credibility who oversaw a process that was rigorous and unsparing, that was highly critical in some areas and produced a series of recommendations that have all been acted on.”
That is of course in direct contrast to what whistleblower lawyer, *Joe di Genova said, earlier today:
“if anyone thinks that the Accountability Review Board was designed to find the truth, they are living in a dream world.”
*Joe di Genova is representing Mark Thompson, not Gregory Hicks as previously reported. His wife, Victoria Toensing is representing Hicks.
