Recently, an email obtained by Judicial Watch showed that three days after the Benghazi attack, deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes outlined a recommendation that the administration “underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”

The next day, then-U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice was on the Sunday shows blaming the Benghazi attack on “the video.”

Yesterday, Jay Carney tried to claim that the email in question which Judicial Watch obtained through a FOIA request was “explicitly not about Benghazi.”

With that in mind, at today’s presser, Fox News’ Ed Henry asked:

“If the email was not about Benghazi, as you said yesterday and you say again today, why did the White House turn it over to a conservative group seeking information about Benghazi?”

null

Good question. It’s not like this administration has a track record of over-providing when it comes to document requests.

If you’re in a hurry, here’s the shorter version of Carney’s answer:

Here’s Carney’s actual non-answer, featuring his trademark “I would refer you to [insert name of anybody who would deflect blame from the White House]. Feel the squirm:

Carney’s just a day or two away from a full “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!” breakdown.
