Piers Morgan Gets Tough With DWS On Libya
Yesterday, Congress held a hearing into exactly what happened in Libya, and who knew what and when. Boy Wonder Jay Carney had a few problems answering questions from Jake Tapper and others as to the Obama administration’s response. Debbie Wasserman Schultz had even more problems
(The Blaze) Appearing as a guest on Piers Morgan’s CNN show, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz did her best to defend the Obama administration’s handling of the deadly 9/11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. She also tried to explain away the trove of misinformation that was circulated by the White House in the days following the attack that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead.
Morgan began by pointing out the obvious.
“It was very clumsily handled,” he said about the response to the Libya assault. “Was it scandalously handled? Should heads roll?”
After rolling her eyes and shaking her head, Schultz said that President Obama knew Ambassador Stevens personally, which had nothing to do with Morgan’s question whatsoever.
She continued: “What we need to do when the United States has been attacked, when Americans have been killed while serving our country; we don’t need to have Mitt Romney and the Republicans in Congress taking their first instinct, being to take cheap political shots—”
“Let me stop you there,” Morgan interrupted. “Because it’s not about Mitt Romney or what he did…what’s equally inappropriate though is the suggestion that Ambassador Rice and others made public statements which were deliberately misleading in the sense of blaming this video when in fact it has to be known after four or five days that it was much more likely to have been a terrorist attack that had been plan.”
Debbie Downer was shocked, shocked!!!!!!, that someone in the Compliant Media would dare to question the Official Obama Administration Spin that she was trotting out. It didn’t get any better when DWS attempted to move the conversation back to Mitt Romney
“You are flogging the wrong dead horse,” he interjected. “It isn’t about what Mitt Romney or Republicans did. The… really important horse that should be flogged is the behavior and the statements of those who were in positions of responsibility and, we would assume, knowledge, and it’s pretty un-American, pretty un-American, to put out completely false statements before you know the facts, isn’t it?”
“It is not OK for you to be saying that the administration was putting out completely false statements,” Schultz said, a look of disbelief on her face.
Piers Morgan continued to call her on her BS, and was shocked himself that Debbie said that the information the O admin put out wasn’t false. Which it was. A complete load of mule fritters. When they knew it was a terrorist attack within hours. And that there was no “spontaneous protest” which turned into an attack with heavy weapons. And that these “protesters” in Libya, Egypt, and all the areas where “protests” occurred just happened to have tons of al Qaeda and Taliban style flags and headbands ready to go. On September 11.
