White House spokesman Jay Carney doubled-down  on President Obama’s assertion that the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi,  Libya, was ‘phony scandal’ – just days after the mother of one of the victims of  the brutal attack appeared on Fox News to express how outraged she was that the  president would refer to the attack as ‘phony.’

For the last few weeks, ‘phony scandals’ has  been one of the president’s talking points when talking about the Benghazi  attack as he criss-crosses the country giving speeches in support of his new  economic plan.

‘What we’ve seen, as time has passed and more  facts have become  known, whether it’s about the attacks in Benghazi and the  talking points or revelations about conduct at the IRS, that attempts to turn  this  into a scandal have failed,’ Carney said during a press briefing on  Wednesday.

New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte said in an interview with Fox News that  the administration’s latest comments are unacceptable.

‘His recently calling these phony scandals, that, to me, is  incredibly  wrong. It’s misleading to the American people,’ she said.

Frustrated by the glacial pace of the investigation into the September 11,  2012, attack that killed four Americans – including Ambassador Chris Stevens –  eight Republican lawmakers sent a letter to new FBI Director James Comey  demanding he make the Benghazi probe a top priority.

 

‘Rumors continue to swirl about the whereabouts of suspects involved  in the  attack. The FBI continues to add pictures of potential assailants to its website  and asks the Libyan people to assist with identifying  the alleged perpetrators.  We struggle to understand why we don’t know  more about those who attacked two  U.S. compounds and murdered four brave Americans,’ they wrote.

‘It has been more than 10 months since the attacks. We appear to be  no  closer to knowing who was responsible today than we were in the early weeks  following the attack. This is simply unacceptable. We encourage  you to be  aggressive in your investigation to properly hold accountable  those who  attacked our compounds in Benghazi.’

Last week, the mother of one of the men killed in the attack blasted the  president for describing her son’s death as ‘phony.’

‘I don’t believe him anymore. He’s wrong. My son is dead. How could that  be  phony?’ Patricia Smith, the mother of Foreign Service member Sean Smith, who was  killed in the attack, said on Fox News’s Your World on Thursday. ‘How can I tell  you? I mean it’s wrong. It’s not phony, it’s not fake. My son is  dead and why  is he dead? And all I’m waiting for, even to this date, is  for someone to get  back to me and tell me what happened.

‘I begged them, please, I must know what happened with my son. How come  this  happened? They all promised me they would get  back to me. And you know, not one  of them, not one of them ever got back to me in any way shape or form, not by a  letter, not by anything other  than I got a memo stating that I didn’t need to  know because I was not  part of the immediate family.’

The eight senators say they expect to be briefed on the investigation into  the attack in 30 days.
