Jay Carney refuses to address questions on Benghazi, from Gregory Hicks VIDEO

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Monday was “unable” to answers questions regarding Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission for the U.S. in Libya, who says that U.S. Special Forces were told to “stand down” during the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi.

“The Department of Defense has addressed this. I don’t have access to the interviews that I think have been referred to and some of the news reports,” Carney said.

Carney continued that the official response to the attacks has already been thoroughly examined by the Accountability Review Board and White House officials.

“[Greg Hicks] is challenging the credibility of the White House,” Henry persisted. “You don’t care about what he’s saying? Do you think he’s lying?”

CBS reports:

The account from Gregory Hicks is in stark contrast to assertions from the Obama administration, which insisted that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were utilized. Hicks gave private testimony to congressional investigators last month in advance of his upcoming appearance at a congressional hearing Wednesday.

According to excerpts released Monday, Hicks told investigators that SOCAFRICA commander Lt. Col. Gibson and his team were on their way to board a C-130 from Tripoli for Benghazi prior to an attack on a second U.S. compound “when [Col. Gibson] got a phone call from SOCAFRICA which said, ‘you can’t go now, you don’t have the authority to go now.’ And so they missed the flight … They were told not to board the flight, so they missed it.”

    Re previous post about the Benghazi terrorist attacks and the website:
    http://beforeitsnews.com/blogging-citizen-journalism/2012//11/theory-on-general-petraeus-ex-cia-director-2444922.html — if unable to find, was it taken down by
    Google and/or the government??
    Also, in another report on Benghazi, in Investment Watch, dated Apr. 11, 2013, the report
    said that, “After removing Qaddafi from power in Libya, the Obama-Clinton ‘black ops
    plan’ was immediately put into action…”

    A leftist Obama administration apologist troll bashing Fox News doesn’t alter the fact that
    Obama and Clinton clearly lied and covered up the Benghazi terrorist attacks…
    Partial excerpts from a Nov. 9, 2012 BeforeItsNews.com report presented a number of facts including– “Pres. Obama fired Gen. Carter Ham, commander of Africom, because he went against the order to stand down by preparing an assault force to go in to save
    Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans… Gen. Ham was operating on the
    President’s original order..” “Gen. Ham said that Pres. Obama lied on this matter.”

    The talking heads over at Fox guard the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane and only serve their own warped ideology. Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas. See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at
