State Dept Holds Conference Call on Benghazi Terror Attack – Excludes FOX News (Video)

The Obama State Department held a conference call with reporters tonight on the Benghazi terror attack. They did not invite FOX News on the call. Bret Baier told viewers on Special Report that FOX is usually included on such calls.

During the call, the Obama State Department said there was no protest at the consulate on 9-11 and that terrorists attacked the compound after 8:30 PM. This contradicts directly what the administration was saying after the deadly 9-11 attacks.

    Commies don’t like people who tell the truth. FOX actually reports the news, unlike LSM propaganda idiots. Problem is, many, many people watch FOX News and the word is getting out regardless of the WH’s sleezy tactics. Bummer.

  • Kudos to FOX news for breaking the truth before the White House (or anyone else attached to this administration doing the talk circuit) would admit to it. But even bigger KUDOS to the ‘new media’… blogs, talk radio, etc… for breaking the truth even before Fox did.

    Fox needs to advertise this ALL over. .in print and on the air. . .They broke the story first. . .showed Obama lied. .

    House Republicans need to investigate this further and the cover-up by team Obama. . Libya-gate.
    They also need to look into obama instigating riots in middle east. . .with Cairo memo to people. .and lies on TV.

    But best of all, this action by Obama should now be the precedent Romney uses WHEN he wins. .exclude NBC, MSNBC. NPR (which he’ll defund), NYT and WaPo. . .

    this should get CBS, ABC, CNN in line or they get excluded next!

    Obama hasn’t figured it out yet. If he’d quit lying to the people….the people might quit telling the truth about him! I think Obama is almost done….it kind of feels like the Nation is starting to move on and put his tenure behind us.

    ***Breaking News***

    According to same un-named sources that are used by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN as well as NYT and WaPo, the reason FOX was not invited to join conference call with the White House is that the main part of the call involved how best to spin this devastating news to Obama’s advantage.

    After all, the data and outcome makes Obama looks like the INCOMPETENT, INEPT, Inexperienced fool he really is and the White House cannot allow that so close to the election.

    This administration is one of the most immature on a daily basis. It has become so evident to the viewers and to those of us who watch Fox News, Obama has dug himself into such a hole that it will take the hand of God to get him out.

    I would love to see him get down on his knees, (both) and ask God for forgiveness. Now, He is the one Obama needs to start bowing too.

    And it is clear that if Obama were to win this election, he will try to conjure up some reason to take out Fox news, permanently.

  • iamsaved

    Anyone surprised that Hillary’s State Dept would stoop so low? They’ll show that “fair and balanced” news station that they won’t put up with “fair and balanced” anymore by not inviting them to a press conference.

    Anyone still think Hillary is qualified for anything? Look at her record. Socialist in college. Worked for a law firm in Arkansas where questionable transactions took place. Was the first lady of Arkansas because of Bill. Was the first lady of the USA because of Bill. Was made a Senator in a state she never lived because of her husband’s connections. And, she’s failed miserably at the only job of responsible job she’s ever had, Secretary of State.

  • Granny

    I find it rather odd that the White House would exclude the one news channel that has not only the biggest audience, but an audience bigger than all the rest of the major TV & cable news combined.

  • squeaky

    to add more misery to the mix……[Ninety minutes after news of the attack reached Washington, Obama, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, JCS Chair General Martin Dempsey, and a national security adviser convened for an oval office meeting in which they ultimately rejected the course of U.S. military intervention. Instead, they decided to reach out to the Libyan government to ask if they would send reinforcements.] leaving them to hang out to dry while obama went to bed.

  • Patty

    And this proves that Rice was wrong, Obama was Wrong, Hillary WAS WRONG.

    This is BIG. And Obama really believes that he can not invite Fox reporters without Fox getting copies of briefings. YES, OBAMA IS THAT STUPID.

  • squeaky

    [As it relates to Benghazi consulate security, sequestration will gut $129 million from embassy security, maintenance and construction budgets. The State Department should be devoting its sure-to-dwindle resources to security guards and/or equipment in order to prevent a repeat of the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and the others in Libya. These Chevy Volt-related purchases are symbols of misguided Obama administration priorities. I’m sure these two embassies aren’t the only…..] they may not have security but they’ll have a volt. how re-volting.

  • Patty

    I believe Obama wants this nation to get its news first from MSNBC, CBS AND NBC.

    They don’t want Fox to be the first with the story? But truly, Obama is one arrogant
    S_ _! He is flailing and failing at the same time.

  • Stella Baskomb

    “They did not invite FOX News on the call.”

    This administration behaves like a bunch of 7th-graders when caught in their lies.

    That behavior is understandable – – in 7th graders.

    In adults that behavior is reprehensible.

    Out with these phonies.

  • befuddled

    Next debate on foreign affairs, all questions will be answered with one question: “When did you know about Bhengazi, what did you do after the fact,and why is Clinton still in charge?” Same president that got the call about an ambassador,2 marines,and 2 Navy seals killed in Bhengazi goes partying with JayZ and Beyonce that very night. Worst president ever, sure. Worst human being ever, no doubt.What was that Nobel for? It must have been for the color of his skin because the man has no character.

    Breaking News: Libyan Parliament Removes Prime Minister


  • listingstarboard

    Remember back in 2009 Obama tried to ban FOX from the press pool and the other networks called him out? The good ole days.

  • Lewis Colby

    Every Republican Senator and Congressman should be in front of a local or national news camera tomorrow demanding heads and accountability. The corrupt attempt to lie to all of us to cover up the tragic and unnecessary deaths of Americans in Lybia to save the sorry ass of the incompetent President and Secretary of State should not stand. Calls for Ambassador Rice to resign immediately will do for a start. She is a lying weasal.

  • Lisa Daniels

    Obama and his cronies have some nerve calling Romney a liar while this continues to play out. It is so hard for me to believe this contest is so close. Unfortunately, most on the left are so focused on social issues and not taking into consideration the economic and foreign policy issues that have the potential to destroy America.

    No protest before Benghazi attack, wounded Libyan guard says

    [A Libyan security guard who said he was at the U.S. consulate here
    when it was attacked Tuesday night has provided new evidence that
    the assault on the compound that left four Americans dead, including
    the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was a planned attack by armed Islamists
    and not the outgrowth of a protest over an online video that mocks
    Islam and its founder, the Prophet Muhammad.]

    September 14, 2012

    Source: This is how Islamists knew of secret U.S. safehouse

    [An Egyptian security official speaking to WND today said there
    is information about large-scale infiltration by al-Qaida and its
    affiliated Jihadia Salafiya groups within the Libyan security

    The claim comes amid speculation about how Islamists who targeted
    the U.S. mission in Libya seemed to have inside information about the
    movement of the American diplomats in the country as well as the
    location of a supposedly secret U.S. safehouse in Libya.

    That’s no problem. FOX really didn’t need to be on that conference call anyway, since they’re planning on reporting the facts. The only reason a reputable reporter would want to listen in on that call would be to find out what lies they were telling everyone else…

  • jony101

    so the other news stations didn’t boycott the conference? The whitehouse must be scared of Fox news.

    Who get’s tossed under the bus first, Hillary or Rice? Both should be indicted by Congress for perjury.

What happens when you lie to AMERICA about a raped, tortured, and murdered Ambassador and his staff?

    and three embassy staff were killed, the deputy interior minister said

    hah, they’re all spineless, well, except for Michelle

    Muslim Brotherhood ‘infiltrated’ U.S. gov’t

    [The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has
    successfully penetrated both political parties and the delicate areas
    of defense and national security.

    Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council, told WND’s Greg Corombos that people with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood are in vital positions within every significant area of the U.S. government. He specifically cited high security clearances for such people in the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security.

    He said neither Republicans nor Democrats want to protest
    too loudly over concerns of being branded intolerant.]

    Democrats Funded by Islamists

    [“While brave young Virginia men and women are risking their lives to fight
    terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, Connolly, Moran and Kaine are yucking it
    up with them and slapping each other on the back over at the Marriott,”

    charged VAST Chairman James Lafferty.

    He noted that the three politicians’ campaign war chests are
    heavily funded by radical Islamists who support the mosque.

    “Look at their Federal Election Commission reports,” Lafferty said. “These
    spineless politicians are owned and operated by the radical Islamists and
    their sinister front groups.”

    Bump in the Road:

    The blood of these Americans is on the hands of oBama and hIllary..they were murdered as the direct result of their incompetence. And..the fact that they lied over and over to the American people is a greater crime than the attack on our Consulate in Benghazi, itself.
    Keep on it, Bret Baier and Godspeed.

  • Limousine Barry

    What’s wrong?

    Let me be clear, all of the MSM with the exception of FOX helped cover up this murderous scandal!

    I see no reason to break the tread! Who needs FOX to spill the beans!

    Besides, all of the MSM – but FOX are in the tank with me!

    Look, Davy Axelrod and Davy Plouffe, Chris Tingles, Jay Carney, Jay Carney’s wife Clair Shipman of Good Grief American, the rest of the shills at CNN and MSNBC can spin this thing before I get impeached!

    I have no excuses. And, I have nothing left to say… except, I suck! Good day.

    Has anybody else seen this?
    via Insty~

    UPDATE: It’s not just Libya: State Dept Mum on Missing Priest in Greece. “Father Christiaan Kappes, a priest for the Indianapolis Archdiocese, went missing in Greece last Monday after telling his family he feared for his life. His father, Virgil Kappes, encouraged his son to go to the US Embassy for help. While at the embassy, Father Kappes called his father, who over heard the conversation. The State Department confirmed Father Kappes did visit the embassy, but he did not request safe haven. His father said his son left the embassy because he was denied safe haven. Mr. Kappes thinks the State Department is trying to cover up a mistake.”

  • hanoi jane

    fox wasnt invited so the administration could spin it for the willing msm.

    after all, the msm was knowingly or ignorantly complicit in the immediate cover-up. they ignored the attack and negligence of the obama administration and instead lead with the distraction of romney’s terror attack statement and pounded romney for days for ‘jumping the gun’!

  • mg4us

    This is an awesome vid. . please pass it on. .ALL AMerica needs to see it and know who Romney is. . .and what he represents. . .

  • mg4us

    Yes. .I was right. .see point #10. . .
    Diane Sawyer (the lemon sucking queen of MSM sleaze) acts surprised and shocked yet no where probes who knew what when. . .

    Take a look

    As article states:
    If you’ve been following the news about Benghazi, you’ll have two questions after watching this clip. One: Didn’t we already know this? Answer: Yes, “we” did, but not because our government was eager for us to find out. McClatchy published an interview with a Libyan guard wounded in the attack just two days after it happened in which he claimed that there was never any protest. Four days later, Fox News was hearing the same thing from an intelligence source on the ground. Four days after that, Eli Lake of Newsweek reported that there was intelligence early on that the attack was planned and that an Al Qaeda affiliate was involved.

    I suggest we call our Congressional representatives TODAY and demand Hillary and Rice resign NOW!! As well as an inquiry into Axelrod and Jarrett and whether they need to be jailed for treason!

  • snewb

    In Watergate break in, police found notes in burglars clothes with phone #’s of Nixon’s reelection committee. That’s when Dean & Halderman began the cover up but Dean came forward and blew the whistle on Nixon. How is this any different?
    Aren’t Jarret, Hillary etc. doing the same thing?
