Irony: WH Slams ‘Attempts To Politicize’ Benghazi

From a seemingly irony proof Politico:

White House slams ‘attempts to politicize’ Benghazi

By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | May 8, 2013

White House press secretary Jay Carney charged Wednesday that the continued scrutiny of the administration’s behavior around last year’s attack in Benghazi is little more than yet another of Republicans’ "attempts to politicize" the issue.

"This is a subject that has from its beginning been subject to attempts to politicize it by Republicans, while in fact what happened in Benghazi was a tragedy," Carney said during his daily briefing, which took place as former diplomats testified on the attack before the House Oversight Committee.

The White House is accusing someone else of trying to politicize a tragedy? Isn’t irony ironic? (Cf. the Tucson shootings, to the Trayvon Martin case, to Superstorm Sandy, the Aurora and Newtown shootings… ad nauseam.)

Further examination of Benghazi is clearly political, he said, because the incident and surrounding circumstances have "been looked at exhaustively.”

Translation: The State Department looked at what happened, and decided to forgive itself.

The continued pursuit of details of the attack is, Carney said, "part of an effort to chase after what isn’t the substance here." The substance, he said, is that the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was attacked, four Americans were killed and the president has worked to make sure something similar doesn’t happen again.

So the administration is going to make sure something similar doesn’t happen again by denying how and why it happened in the first place?

Carney also addressed a new round of criticism over the administration’s drafting of talking points that were used by officials including UN Ambassador Susan Rice. The White House’s edits were "stylistic and not substantive," he said. "We’ve been very clear about the specific edits that were made at the suggestion of the White House."

You see? It’s just a matter of style, whether the Benghazi attack was done by terrorists or whether it was a protest against a video that got out of hand.

Carney said he wasn’t sure whether the president was watching Wednesday’s hearing, but doubted it: "The president tends not to watch TV during the day."

Like us unimportant people do. For the record, Obama says he watched the Watergate hearings, from dawn to dusk.

Speaking of which, is Jay Carney auditioning to become this generation’s Ron Ziegler?

Meanwhile, we have this breaking news from the Politico:

FLOTUS relieved Cleveland women freed

By KEVIN ROBILLARD | May 8, 2013

First Lady Michelle Obama said her heart "swell[ed] up with relief" when she heard the story of three Cleveland women who were rescued earlier this week after nearly a decade in captivity.

"My heart just swells up with relief because just imagine first losing a child and not knowing whether they’re alive or dead or in harm’s way, and to be holding out hope for a decade, and to finally have those prayers answered is just probably the best Mother’s Day gift or gift that these families will receive," Obama said in an interview on NBC’s "Today" on Wednesday…

Meanwhile, the Obamas and their handlers are working feverishly, trying to figure out a way to use the three kidnappings to advance their agenda.

By the way, would this nightmare have been able to go on for ten years if any of those three girls had had access to a gun?

  1. The USA desperately needs an Elijah. Elijah challenges the prophets of Baal to call down fire from heaven—They fail—He calls down fire, slays the prophets of Baal, and opens the heavens for rain.

    A storm of Truth is what we need. Winds of Change. And lightning bolts of Vengeance.

      All the media is intentionally avoiding discussing Benghazi.

      Jay Carney has probably been a deviant his entire life. He probably thinks he’s fooling people, when he has lost all creditability.
