A code of silence on Libya debacle

John Nolte:
President Obama ran into a buzzsaw yesterday while doing a round-robin of satellite interviews with local news outlets in crucial swing states -- and by "buzzsaw," I mean that rare form of species known as a "real reporter." Kyle Clark of Colorado's KUSA actually asked Obama about the latest revelations out of Libya. According to Fox News, the three requests for help made during the seven-hour attack on our consulate in Benghazi were met with orders from U.S. officials to "stand down." Wisely, Obama dodged this question entirely.

I say "wisely" because, as of right now, outside of a very few exceptions, the CorruptMedia has coordinated with the White House to create a complete blackout around this story. Not even yesterday's denial from the CIA that indirectly implicates the White House garnered any media attention.

In the closing days of a reelection campaign the CorruptMedia is desperate to see Obama win, it's glaringly obvious that nothing this potentially damaging to the president will be allowed to see the light of day -- at least not until after November 6.

Had Obama answered Clark's question yesterday, he would've violated this unspoken blackout agreement by making news. This would've forced the CorruptMedia to cover a story they're desperate to pretend doesn’t exist. Obama knows his Media Palace Guards are covering for him, and he knew that wouldn't have been possible had he done anything that nudged the story.

This is also why Obama filibustered his way through the rest of the interview with Clark. Reporters are only granted a few minutes with the president, and one way Obama controls uncomfortable interviews is to launch into absurdly long answers that run out the clock.

And "run out the clock" over these next 10 days regarding the Libyan scandal is exactly what Obama and his media allies are up to.

The White House itself is also being careful about not making news. This is why no statement was released denying the Fox News report. If the Administration issues a denial, the CorruptMedia will be forced to cover the denial, which in turn will call attention to the story.
ABC's Jake Tapper did cover the evasion of the question on his blog.  But other than that the silence of the media is very telling.   Charles Lane of the Washington Post was on a Fox panel last night so he could not avoid the issue, but he said little.

Either Obama did deny the request for help or he didn't.  If he didn't deny a request for help, I think he would have said so.  Panetta's statement suggest the military was reluctant to commit forces, at least at some level of the command, and I suspect that President Gutsy Call was reluctant to force the point.  Sen. McCain says we did not have forces available.  I find that hard to believe, but if true, it is more damning of this administration and its defense polices.
