A highly defensive and finger pointing David Axelrod pushed off claims President Obama knew the real story of the Benghazi Massacre before the president and his administration repeatedly told the American people and members of Congress otherwise. The question now appears to be who within the State Department will be given up as the sacrifricial lamb – all in the effort to insulate Barack Obama himself from any and all responsibility for the deaths of four Americans - including the first U.S. ambassador to be killed since the Carter administration.
During on interview with Fox News this morning, Axelrod first further defined what Vice President Joe Biden said earlier this week when remarking “we didn’t know they wanted more security” – a reference to multiple requests by American Benghazi personnel asking for enhanced security measures to be implemented in the months and weeks prior to the Benghazi Massacre on September 11th. Those requests were either refused or ignored by the Obama administration. Regarding that point, David Axelrod made it clear the blame is to be placed upon the State Department and not the Obama White House itself:
“These were judgments that were made by security folks at the State Department.”
I await information from inside sources regarding the current relationship between the Clintons and Team Obama. Surely this relationship is far more divisive and untrusting than just a few weeks ago.
