I thought they fixed it already when the maker of the YouTube video was locked up without bail? A man not heard from since. He told this to Jon Stewart, so it’s like he means anything he’s saying. But facing the end of his presidency, it’s time to just throw anything out there. Two or three dead bodies: Somewhat optimal. Four dead: Not optimal. Got that?
President Obama, during the taping of The Daily Show, discussed the Benghazi terrorist attack that claimed the lives of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
“Here’s what I’ll say. When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it,” Obama said per pool. “The government is a big operation and [at] any given time something screws up,” he also said, saying that he believes “you find out what’s broken and you fix it.”
The president was responding to this question from Stewart. “Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions? Not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within,” the comedian asked according to the pooler. “Because I would say, even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as all of us being on the same page” (emphasis added).
Obama promised that his administration publicized information about the Benghazi attack as quickly as it came in, which contradicts previous reports.
It’s a lie and everyone knows it. Well, except maybe for Stewart and his audience. The Benghazi scandal may not result in the firings and impeachments we normally would expect of such gross dereliction of duty. But it will help end his presidency, as it should.
