White House spokesman Jay Carney let President Barack Obama’s Benghazi cat out of the bag today, when he acknowledged that the president’s unilateral intervention in the 2011 Libyan civil war hasn’t led to a stable government in the Islamic and tribal country.

“There’s a difficult dynamic in place there, which is the result — the positive result in the sense that [Libyan dictator Moammar] Gadhafi is gone — but you know you have a situation in these countries where a dictator held together a nation through intimidation and force,” Carney said today.
The admission of chaos in Libya came as he was questioned about a newly revealed email which describes the administration’s effort to blame a YouTube video for the deadly Benghazi attack in 2012, instead of “broader failure of policy.”
When The Daily Caller asked him if the Libyan turbulence is an example of the “broader failure of policy” suggested in the memo, Carney equivocated, and eventually said “I would never tell you what to write.”
