Former National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor On Benghazi: ‘Dude, This Was Like Two Years Ago’

Font Size:

Now we know the statute of limitations on a White House administration lying about terrorists murdering an abandoned American ambassador, on the anniversary of 9/11, in order to make it through a presidential election.

Watch Tommy Vietor slamdunk on Bret Baier:

If Obama were a Republican, the incisive political satirists at SNL would already have their opening sketch written. It would just be a matter of finding the right 8-year-old to play this genius.

Now Vietor has taken to Twitter (@TVietor08) to whine about it. So all in all, I’d say he really showed us wingnuts.

Hat tip: Joe Walsh (the one who’s not an old burnout)

Update: Via the thoroughly vindicated Sharyl Attkisson, “Internal Emails Show State Dept. Immediately Attributed Benghazi Attacks to Terrorist Group.”

Update: Tommy Vietor’s journey with Obama, from van driver to National Security Council spokesman. So he’s old enough to drive.

Update: B. Ray Holland makes an excellent point.


Update: CBS News, whose president is the brother of the guy who came up with the White House’s “blame the video” strategy, lays down covering fire. When Republicans are in trouble, the story is that Republicans are in trouble. When Democrats are in trouble, the story is that Republicans are mean.



Update: John Boehner to Set Up Special Benghazi Committee, Wants Trey Gowdy to Lead. Presumably, Tommy Vietor will respond to this news by posting a series of cat GIFs captioned with “BENGHAZI!!!!!!11!! LOL!!”

Update: I forgot to say hello and welcome to all of today’s #BenghaziDeniers in the comments. Your stalwart truth-telling has not gone unnoticed.
