    State Department: Stop asking us about the Beghazi attack

    State Department: Stop asking us about the Benghazi attack | The Cable

    "I'm going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened -- not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it -- until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation that's its got," State Department spokeswoman Victorian Nuland told reporters late Friday afternoon.
    "So I'm going to send to the FBI for those kinds of questions and they're probably not going to talk to you about it," she said.

    ...

    "I will make a personal pledge to you that if I become aware that information we gave that first night is radically wrong in a way that you deserve to know, I will do my best to get that information to you," Nuland said. "But I have to respect the fact that this is now a crime scene."
    It's not a "crime scene." It's the site of an act of war and an egregious security breach.

    Preposterous. Will the press give them this pass? They shouldn't.

    You are absolutely correct, but Obama will hide behind the "crime scene" scenario to avoid accountability and the press will help him do it.

    FBI is responsible for specific terrorism-related offenses, such as violence at airports, money laundering, attacks on U.S. officials, and others. While I agree that something(s) went horribly wrong and needs to be ferreted out, that can only happen after a full investigation has taken place and in order for those breaches to be corrected, much of the findings won't be disclosed, as in doing so, it would compromise the integrity of the alterations to security that will invariably result. I don't believe it is beneficial for any discovery to be shared with the public at large, especially while tensions in the region remain so inflamed.

    I don't see anything out of line with what the State Department said here.

    How is this any different from the Cheney admin hiding behind info on 9/11?
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    It was perpetrated by an al Qaeda group. Are we not at war with al Qaeda (and all terrorists with a global reach)?

    Aside from its irrelevance, it's another hilarious attempt to justify this administration by saying The Worst Administration Ever (TM) did the same thing. I guess this is also The Worst Administration Ever (TM), as they're so equivalent. Right?

    This is not an "offense," a crime scene. It's an act of war. How did you not get that in my post?

    Okay how do we go about persecuting this war?

    If not treating the scene as a crime scene and gathering as much information as possible.

    Isn't that what all the drone attacks and killing bin Laden have been about?

    This does not prevent the State Department from talking about it. It's an excuse, a cop-out, a run-and-hide.
