Biden Laughs At The Issues

Fast Tube by Casper

Now …. after laughing at the issues and denying he had any knowledge at all of the requests from our embassy in Benghazi … comes the official  notification from Ben Rhodes … the Deputy National Security Advisor for Communications ... that neither Obama or Biden knew anything at all about those requests.

Vice President Joseph Biden speaks only for himself and President Barack Obama, and neither man was aware that U.S. officials in Libya had asked the State Department for more security before the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, a top White House official told The Cable.

Biden has come under fire for saying at Thursday night’s debate, “We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there.”

The Cable asked Deputy National Security Advisor for Communications Ben Rhodes whether Biden was speaking for the entire Obama administration, including the State Department, which acknowledged receiving multiple requests for more Libya security in the months before the attacks. Rhodes said that Biden speaks only for himself and the president and neither of them knew about the requests at the time.

All this to try to convey Obama as a strong commander in chief …. and to continue to pretend that is what he is.

The truth speaks otherwise of course.

To echo Ed Morrissey at Hot Air … words fail me.
