WH spokesman Jay Carney: “Benghazi happened a long time ago”

Jay CarneyRemember that little Benghazi incident? That’s old news, according to White House press secretary Jay Carney.

During his daily press briefing, Carney was asked about rumors that Benghazi whistleblowers are being prevented from testifying about the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks. The White House spokesman denied the allegations.

“Let’s be clear,” Carney said. “Benghazi happened a long time ago. We are unaware of any agency blocking an employee who would like to appear before Congress to provide information related to Benghazi.”

On Tuesday, during a special press conference, President Obama also said he had no knowledge of anyone being blocked from testifying.

“I’m not familiar with this notion that anybody’s been blocked from testifying,” he told members of the media. “What I’ll do is find out what exactly you’re referring to.”

And while the POTUS doesn’t seem to know much about the Benghazi whistleblowers, he was more than happy to give his opinion on basketball.
