White House: When Joe Biden Said "We Didn't Know" of Benghazi Security Requests, He Meant Himself, and the President.
And Now the White House.

This is amazing bias. The Hill just got a straight-up admission by the White House that Biden lied -- or at least misstated the facts when he said "We didn't know" about security requests -- and the White House is now walking him back, saying he speaks only for himself and President Modified Limited Hangout.

Rather than report this startling, newsmaking admission straight, The Hill buries it under the Nothing To See Here Folks headline "Report: Biden Didn't Know About Security Requests," a headline that suggests that Biden is being backed up in his claim.

In fact, Biden's actual statement is being discarded. And a new statement is being substituted in its place.

Further, that's not a "report" -- a confirmed report offered by disinterested parties -- it's a claim, a self-serving statement offered by an interested parties.

No link for these bastards. I'll quote 'em; people can find the article themselves, if they like.

Report: Biden didn't know about security requests in Libya

By Ian Swanson - 10/12/12

Vice President Biden was speaking for himself and President Obama when he said the administration was unaware of additional requests for security for U.S. diplomats in Libya, a White House official has told Foreign Policy’s The Cable blog.

Deputy National Security adviser Ben Rhodes told The Cable that Biden and Obama were unaware of the requests, and that this accounts for Biden’s statement at Thursday night’s debate.

“We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there,” Biden said Thursday as GOP vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan hammered the administration over a Sept. 11 attack that left U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three others dead.

See how fact-checks work, kiddies? Biden lies, and The Hill's stenographer "reports" it as true. After all, a White House official, cleaning up for Biden and walking his statement back, says it's true. So it's true.

And The White House Didn't Know, Either. Keeping the smell of death away from the White House...

...it's over there, by Hillary.

But Obama and Biden don't blame Hillary. Despite Stephanie Cutter's insistence that all Obama is interested in is "getting to the facts."

Can you see the pattern here?

Fast & Furious? White House didn't know; neither did Holder. It was all disposable underlings.

Benghazi? White House didn't know; neither, I'm sure we'll soon be told, did Hillary. It was all disposable underlings.

Solyndra? White House didn't know; neither did Stephen Chu. It was all disposable underlings.

Gee whiz. What a difficult mystery to crack.
