Per @PressSec, there's a quick expiration date on outrage over Americans who are killed but can't help admin advance a political agenda.—

At today’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney wanted to be perfectly clear about how he’s going to handle questions about Benghazi from now on:
“A long time ago,” Jay? Try telling that to the families of the four brave Americans killed on September 11, 2012 — just seven and a half months ago.
For them, the pain is as raw as ever.
Twitterers are sickened:
Give Carney a break. Benghazi recedes into the mists of time after you've allowed the 1st terrorist bombing on US soil since 9/11.—

Carney: "Benghazi happened like a long time before Obama called to congratulate Jason Collins."—

Sure is funny how that works, huh?
Benghazi happened a long time ago according to Jay Carney. Is that an excuse or just stupidity?—

How about both?
Shorter Obama Admin: When Benghazi happened, it was too soon to talk about it. Now, eight months later, it's too late to talk about.—

Carney says Benghazi "happened a long time ago." Those bumps in the road look very small in the post-election rear-view mirror.—

Unbelievable. Can Carney stoop any lower?
Just wait. It’s only a matter of time.
