"It was explicitly not about Benghazi," press secretary Jay Carney told journalists during his daily briefing at the White House. "It was about the overall situation in the region, the Muslim world, where you saw protests outside of embassy facilities across the region, including in Cairo, Sana'a, Khartoum and Tunis."

Obama himself referred to "act of terror" in several speeches in the two days following the attack yet also referred to the video at times in other remarks

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., told Newsmax: "This was a cover-up, and these e-mails only continue to confirm my belief."

Yep and if you like your doctor you can keep him.

NO one in their right mind is going to believe Jay's comments. This e-mail was hid from the public - if you have NOTHING to hid then you put all your cards on the table - this president wanted to win the ELECTION and he told Americans that Al-Qaida was gone and he did not want Benghazi to be held against him - NO he would NOT have been voted in office for a second term had the people known his tactic on so many LIES.
Obama only stated the VIDEO is what caused this at Benghazi. Your comment is a lie when you say he referred to the video at times. NEVER did he refer to Benghazi as anything else but a video. Don't you remember on Romney and Obama's debate Candy Crowley agreeing with Obama saying Obama said that Benghazi was a terrorist attack and then had to apologize to Romney because Obama NEVER SAID IT.

Jay Carney denies the denial. Now there is a new story. The E mail had nothing to do with the Benghazi massacre. They can't keep their cover ups straight. Now we are getting the cover up of the cover up. Either the Democrats are insane, or they think we are. Watch when they sober up Monday, or Tuesday we will get a new story. It was sad to watch them stumble over their fairy tales, each telling a bigger lie then the last. All the American people ever wanted was the truth. We deserve that much.

That would be the best thing that could happen to America today - at least Biden would not bend over and kiss the azz of the Middle East or apologize for the American people are arrogant. Obama started off a looser and will end up a looser

It is starting to become clear that the Benghazi coverup by the Obama administration and with the help of the corrupt mainstream media led by Candy Crowley is real.

I just hope that the real reason that we did not protect our citizens in Benghazi with military support was the Obama reelection campaign.

If it is, then prison time needs to be handed out to all involved.

All these months the Democrats, and their criminal loyalists have covered up the incompetence of this President. Obama wasn't in the war room when the decisions to stand down were made, and when we decided to sacrifice the Ambassador, and those hero's. No wonder he couldn't look the families of the dead in the face. Someone must be held responsible for the useless deaths of our people. If it was done to save the election for the Democrats the entire party should be shunned out of existence.

This is better then the Jon Stewart Comedy Show. It is 6 months until the election, and you can smell the stench of defeat in all the Liberal posts. They elected a President who was in no way prepared to be President, and then blame others when he fails so miserably.

Most presidents tell the truth up front and all their e-mails are not required - those that did not tell the truth got impeached like Nixon and Clinton.

We are already celebrating the election. We are meeting, and reading the pitiful whining from the liberal pundits. Oh, joy, joy, joy!!! And where is the former Secretary of State? Is she hiding? The big Grandma announcement didn't help her any.
