Btw, John Bolton called Carney's comment an embarrassment. I tend to agree, but it absolves the Obama administration of complicancy, and isn't that what they really want?

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney just took questions at the daily briefing about the ongoing and escalating situation of riots in the Middle East and other parts of the world. As Guy reported earlier, a story by the UK Independent said the White House had intelligence that U.S. Embassies would be attacked on 9/11 and did nothing. Carney refuted the report today saying it is "false."

"We were not aware of any intelligence that an attack was imminent. That report is false," he said.
