Tapper: Carney’s Benghazi Comments ‘Dissembling, Obfuscating, and Often Insulting’

CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared on Hugh Hewitt‘s radio show today to take on Jay Carney‘s spin of the latest Benghazi news. Tapper didn’t join Hewitt in calling Carney a liar, but remarked that he found Carney’s comments “dissembling, obfuscating, and often insulting.”

Tapper said the White House’s version of events “does not sit with what I think happened.” He said the White House “leaned heavily into” a narrative that was helpful to them in an election year, but didn’t go as far as Hewitt, who suggested there is a “cover-up underway.”

Hewitt said looking at all of Carney’s spinning, it’s clear there is some kind of organized effort on the White House’s part to “mislead” on Benghazi once again.
