White House shoots down rumors
it nixed Benghazi intervention

The Hill [Washington DC], by Julian Pecquet

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/31/2012 3:18:34 PM

The White House on Wednesday shot down rumors that President Obama nixed an operation to rescue U.S. diplomats under attack in Benghazi after former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich made the claim on national television. “Neither the President nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi during the attack,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told The Hill via email. Gingrich told Fox News on Tuesday evening that he'd been told by a “fairly reliable” U.S. senator that at least two news networks have emails

If you want to "shoot down rumors" you need to actually give out information not simply denials.

The other question is - did they offer assistance?

Sure, We already know they did. Why would anyone think Obama would start telling the truth now? The WH line is still no need to nix it since there was no attack.

We already know they lied about the whole episode. Maybe they can tell us again about a movie no one saw.

It will be much more difficult to shoot down facts. Once Odumbo is out, the whole truth (or most of it) will become known. What many of us fear and suspect will be laid bare to see.

Just who refused to give a "commit weapons" order to the AC-130 that was in the area? Ex-seals on the ground were lazing a target for the AC. Was it Obama or Valerie Jarrett?

There had been a C-130 gunship in Libya but it was moved out of country shortly before. It would be like Obama to ask what were available resources. When told that the C-130 was available nearby but out of country and would make hash out of the attackers, I can envision Obama limiting them to in-country resources. Thus being able to say, "I didn't deny intervention."

I think they're trying to be cute with language.
Sure they didn't a deny request for help - they just didn't approve intervention of forces.

This should of course read "White House denies rumors..." instead of "White House shoots down rumors..." Another example of blatant journalistic bias. There are too many to count.

Who knows what the truth is? Not the public, not yet. This situation will certainly continue past the election. It is typical Obama stonewalling. He has done this about everything, beginning with his birth certificate, records, Fast and Furious, energy policy, health care, etc. He will certainly do it about Benghazi. It is obvious that he is hiding all kinds of things about all sorts of things public and private. There is more hidden and unknown about this man and his behavior and associations and past than is known. Almost everything that is known -or is thought to be known- has been told us by himself and his handlers. The documented parts of his entire life and his presidency are slight indeed. Americans can thank the mainstream news media for this unprecedented and dangerous state of affairs. Not only have they failed to investigate and challenge him like other presidents, they have actually done their best to discredit and defeat anyone who tries to find out more facts about this mystery man president.

I hope President Romney doesn't sweep this under the rug when he comes to office. This is too important and too treasonous to pull a Bush and just let it go. Heads really, really need to roll. It cries out for justice.
Something else that needs some long-awaited justice is that wall street meltdown four years ago. I can't believe there haven't been any perp walks over that, but there certainly haven't.
It's not good for the moral fiber of our people to see things like that just fade away.

It would seem that "shooting down rumors" with blanks (lies) is not likely an effective strategy. The current regime is oblivious to that reality.

They may think they are shooting down rumors, but the truth will not be easily shot down with an empty gun. 0 & Co. are just hoping that the arms trafficking to Al Qaeda aspect of Benghazigate (The real reason the CIA was there.) will not get out before the election.

The part will not inspire the peace loving Rat base.

“Shoots down”? Hardly. They simply floated another balloon into the already considerable fray. Their unsubstantiated denial carries little weight at this point.
In the continuing fallout on this topic their contention seems to be that no one in the WH knew anything or did anything – except to give an order to do whatever it took to protect the ambassador from the movie review. But no one seems to have been on the receiving end of that directive.

Just give us the video, audio and transcripts and you’ll be cleared, Mr. Pres. Nothing to worry about, right?

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
