Obama Admits White House Gave Ambassador Rice Bogus Information on Benghazi (Video)

Obama told reporters today the White House gave Ambassador Susan Rice the bogus information she delivered to the talk shows the week after the Benghazi terrorist attack.
Rice told five different networks that an obscure YouTube video ignited a protest outside the consulate that escalated into violence.
It was a lie.

The Weekly Standard reported:

President Barack Obama revealed at his press conference this afternoon that he is responsible for sending U.N. ambassador Susan Rice to speak to the American people a few days after the September 11 Benghazi terror attack.

“As I said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her,” Obama said at the press conference, defending the statements the ambassador to the U.N. made regarding the Benghazi attack.

Rice has been widely criticized for giving misleading statements about Benghazi. She maintained that the killing of four Americans stemmed for a spontaneous protest that got violent.

    “As I said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her,”

    Obama did not say EXACTLY who gave her that intel. That is an answer we must demand.

    Who gave her the garbage she was given and what happened to the person who gave it to her?

  • Shaw Shawl

    So he admits that HE gave her the faulty info. ……as he did to Petreaus .
    Obama was getting direct real time info, so HE told Petreaus that it was about the youtube view , THAT is why as CIA head he told congress it was the video….he trusted Obama

  • Buzzy

    Notice he is still blaming it on the “intelligence.” When Petreaus testifies before the House, I pray he owns up and tells the truth that the video story was manufactured by the WH, and that he used very bad judgement in agreeing to push their narrative when he had his closed door briefing before Congress on Sept. 14. When Petreaus testifies on Friday, I’m sure he knows he can become a national hero by telling the truth, or he can sit in hell on earth which is where the WH wants him to be.

    This alone is a justification for a special prosecutor, given the President cannot expect his AG to investigate his misconduct.

    And this means what, that what she said was totally disconnected from the views of the rest of Obie’s team? Or was it her interpretation entirely and the rest of the apparatus just meekly played along?

    Crikes, these people are pathetic.

    if he doesn’t, why should i care..

    [“There is not gonna be one kernel of truth of what happened at Benghazi
    come out of any of this. It ain’t going to happen. I mean within two weeks
    of Obama being re-elected, you think they’re going to open the doors and
    the floodgates for people to go in and get to Obama? It isn’t gonna happen.
    … You have to understand what’s going on here, folks. There is a circle-the

    is abundantly clear.”

    At this point, any honorable ambassador would be resigning in high dudgeon and inviting a subpoena from Congress. But Obama wasn’t likely to select an honorable ambassador for the UN anyway. Ms. Rice should certainly refuse any invitation to take Secretary of State; her confirmation hearings would give “disaster” a whole new paragraph right below “Sandy: see FEMA.”
    There is this for GW Bush and WMDs: there were all kinds of reasons to believe Saddam Hussein had WMDs. If the neocons had faked the WMD premise, they’d have found some that met their definition. When WMDs were found, but not the ones GW Bush had said he feared, the Administration acknowledged that “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for”. Obama and the Enablers, MSM included, would have said the weapons found had justified their premise. (There is still a possibility that the WMDs went to Syria, incidentally, and may yet be used against Syrian or Israeli civilians.)

  • Stella Baskomb

    At least now we know why Susan Rice was selected to be the administrations’ dupe on that infamous Sunday morning in September. She was set up to deliver the administration’s lie-of-the-moment, that some video that almost no one ever saw, was wholly responsible for the military-grade strike against US diplomatic property in Libya.

    The logical choice would have been Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State. She was not pushed forward because of . . well, because of Bill Clinton. The next logical choice would have been Petraeus, because Rice said she relied on the available intelligence and Petraeus was head of CIA. But the administration knew that right after the election they were going to bring down Petraeus. So who’s left? Why, Susan Rice, UN ambassador. A useful idiot.

    And that now qualifies said Susan Rice to be Secretary of State. What a country!

  • owl

    Obama:
    Rice gave best info from intell. So who is intell? Petraeus.
    He deliberately admits that the WH sent her out. Then says she gave info from intell.

    Obama just pointed directly at Petraeus. How? Petraeus gave that info to Congress and he was Obama’s top intell man. There is proof Petraeus gave shady briefing to Congress.

    The Professional Poop Scoopers will take care of the rest. I just listened to Sheppard trace it all back to Petraeus. They will NEVER bother to clear up that little fiasco about if Obama called it a terrorist attack or did he not on Sept 12. CANDY???????

    They blooded Petraeus up for this week and now that all the Scoopers have totally trashed 2 generals, they intend to salvage Allen and throw out Petraeus. Panetta gave thumbs up.

    They think they can get by with this forked tongue chit because of Poop Scoopers. I tend to agree.

    This is one nasty evil bunch and the only thing between us and them is our ELECTED voices.
    If that does not scare the chit out of you, nothing will.

We know you surround yourself with dullards like Rice because you’re terrified a half-intelligent person would see through you.

    THE DEMOGANGSTER CRIMINALS STOLE THE ELECTION.
    OBAMA ILLEGAL ALIEN POSING AS PRESIDENT.
    US GOV. NULL AND VOID.

    This election was again stolen (see wnd.com). And Obama is illegal because he is not really an American citizen as required by the constitution, and of course, the Demogangsters stole the election.

    See obamacrimes.com

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/the-big-list-of-vote-fraud-reports/?cat_orig=politics

    Reid is a very will known election thief. It has been known for decades that the Democratic party has been stealing elections.

    Most of the democrats in our legislature and the White house occupant are there illegally, and therefore this democratic party infested govt. is null and void, under the law.

    All its rules, regulations and statutes are null and void as a matter of law.

    The Army does not have to follow Obama’s illegal laws, and commands, which are null and void, because he is illegal.

    In times of war, when the chain of command is broken and the soldier is lost in the wild, he has to use his own judgment to protect himself and his nation (which is every soldier’s constitutional duty and central mission). If he decides to shoot at his nation’s enemies, such as criminals who are illegally trying to usurp power or illegally posing as those with legitimate power, he is doing his constitutional duty and for this, he is immune, under the law.

    Thus, every member of the armed forces and our military has a legal duty to follow his/her constitutional mandate to ignore the bogus and fraudulent commands and statutes and executive orders and all other orders of the criminal Obama, since there is no real commander in chief and most of the senate is basically a criminal gang of Demogangsters who have illegally usurped power and take other necessary steps to evict the illegal occupants who have usurped power.

    Whew. That was easy. At least the lap dog media can now celebrate what an awesome president we have…so brave and so strong…/sarcasm.

  • owl

    Of course, the REAL reason the 4 had to die is still up for grabs.

    Whatever they were covering up in Benghazi. I think they have it fixed now.

    After thinking it over, I do not believe Petraeus would have said video to Congress just to cover his azzz. It has to be something he thought was very important to the country and the President’s national security plan. The fight against terror or the battlefield statis.

    Once again, Obama has him nailed. Just like it is all Bush, it is now all Petraeus. He was the man implementing the plan. Obama gave an ORDER not to do those nasty things.

    Guess who disobeyed orders? Yeppers.

  • Look-Out

    Let’s NOT FORGET what happened on the heels of Benghazi:

    There’s been a virtual blackout of the alarming story in the national press. As I reported last month, the meticulously coordinated siege by 15 Taliban infiltrators — dressed in American combat fatigues and armed with assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons — resulted not only in two deaths [Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell], but also in the most devastating loss of U.S. airpower since Vietnam. Six Harrier jets were destroyed; three refueling stations were wiped out; six hangars were damaged.

    The attack came exactly six months after a failed suicide attack targeting Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and three days after the deadly attack on our consulate in Benghazi.

    they told themselves

    Producer Of Anti-Islam Film Was Fed Snitch

    [SEPTEMBER 14–In remarks stressing that the U.S. government had
    “absolutely nothing to do with” the anti-Islam film that has touched off
    violence in the Middle East, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton yesterday
    sought to quash Arab concerns that the “disgusting and reprehensible”
    movie was somehow produced or condoned by American officials.

    However, Clinton’s attempt to distance the U.S. from “Innocence
    of Muslims” –and, by extension, its felonious producer –may be
    complicated by the revelation that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula
    became a government informant after his 2009 arrest for bank
    fraud, The Smoking Gun has learned.

    Though many key documents from the U.S. District Court case
    remain sealed, a June 2010 sentencing transcript provides an
    account of Nakoula’s cooperation with federal investigators in
    Los Angeles (and how his prison sentence was reduced as a
    result).]

    Innocence of Muslims Film was Made by Terrorists

    [The fact remains that the news of Nakoula’s arrest is likely to
    please the Muslim world. In their view, it will likely mean that
    the rioting worked. Criticism of Islam was ultimately met with
    arrest. Conservatives in the West may be inclined to defend
    Nakoula.

    We urge and encourage conservatives to defend his arrest, not
    his honor. Nakoula has lived a life of deception and has been a
    partner in crime for several years with Walid’s cousin, a noted
    Muslim fundamentalist who hates Christians and Jews.]

    Innocence of Muslims Film was Made by Terrorists

    [Court documents reveal that Nakoula Bacile Nakoula, producer of the
    movie Innocence of Muslims, partnered in a scheme with Eiad Salameh,
    my first cousin.

    Eiad is a Muslim terror supporter and is not an Egyptian Copt.]

    No protest before Benghazi attack, wounded Libyan guard says

    even before they purportedly knew what happened, Hillary strongly
    stated that “internet video we had NOTHING to do with it” (which
    even if they did know, in and of itself is a very odd, and imho, quite
    a revealing, not to mention totally unnecessary, statement to make
    at that specific point in time, ergo, begs the question why did she
    say that when she said it?? we know, but the coverup kiss O butt
    MSM refuses to report)..

    In the second debate Obama made a big deal about saying that he called the Sept 11 attack a terror attack – ‘Candy, check the transcript’. Why then did he tell Rice to go on TV and say it was about a video? Then when he went to the UN 2 weeks later he still blamed the attack on a video. He is unable to tell the truth about anything.
