On Friday Barack Obama told Denver’s 9News that on 9-11 he gave the directives to “make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to” to ensure their safety in Benghazi.

Late on Friday
former Assistant Defense Secretary Bing West told FOX News that if the directive was made to secure our personnel there would be a paper trail.

Today Ohio Senator Rob Portman told FOX News Sunday that we need to find out if this order was ever issued.

There was a shocking breakdown operationally not having the security there in the first place. And not to respond to these guys and their pleas for help for seven hours during a firefight. It’s unbelievable. And, now we’re hearing that the President of the United States, based on his own words, issued a directive immediately after he found out about the firefight saying he wanted to be sure the people on the ground were safe and they were getting what they needed. It didn’t happen. This means that either the president’s order was not followed. Which would be a breakdown in terms of the White House procedure or it means the order wasn’t issued. We need to find out about this. It’s not about politics.

Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said Saturday he has sources saying President Barack Obama was in the room at the White House watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya unfold.

UPDATE: I saw this on Free Republic.

It fits.

  1. Not an optimal question, Senator. Zippy no likey difficult questions!

  2. If we put this impostor under oath, another clintonesque will emerge.

  3. This attack lasted a little over 6 hours…

    Obama you say you gave orders to send help…

    Obama when you and everybody else NOTICED NO HELP WAS COMING IN…

    SEVERAL CALLS COULD OF BEEN MADE IN JUST ONE MINUTE…WHY DID YOU STILL DO NOTHING…OBAMA?????

  4. We need to offer a big$$ reward to the 1st national LSM journalist who gets Obama to answer this question about the order, as well as “Did you watch the drone feed in realtime?” and, if not, “What were you doing while the attack was going on?”

    Those are basic questions that compromise no secrets. They need to be asked & answered. But we all know the answers already, since Obama hasn’t answered them. If he had done the right thing, or even a defensible thing, he’d have already had a huge press conference about it.

    He’s just stonewalling, it’s blatant.

    Maybe he just decided to deem those guys as very, VERY late term embryos, so letting the jihadis kill them was just a very, VERY late term abortion? Similar logic, after all…

    Scroll down to “Benghazi” October 26, AD 2012

    BOOM!

  6. Boy, it’s a good thing The Won doesn’t have an R after his name, otherwise we’d have to listen to Benghazi 24/7 on the MSM./

    The real outrage here is the silence from the MSM.

  7. The msm long ago degenerated into willful prostitutes for Obama and the Progressives in general. The msm are nothing less than the bleating sheep in “Animal Farm”.

  8. Related to the Headline where I dropped:

    “Ultimately as commander-in-chief I am responsible and I don’t shy away from that responsibility”

    Wormtongue – it is not “ultimately” your responsibility!

    As POTUS it DIRECTLY your personal responsibility to authorize initiation of military force in foreign countries.

    He never issued such order, and (needless to say) you do not issue orders to NOT invade countries, regardless of how hairy things are getting, “Not invading” is status quo.

  9. President of the United States, based on his own words, issued a directive immediately after he found out about the firefight saying he wanted to be sure the people on the ground were safe and they were getting what they needed. It didn’t happen.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Immediately after, when was that?

    And we know there is a video that he had to have seen in real time. Obama doesn’t go to bed at 9:00 pm. or did he so he could fly out to Vegas to Campaign. (sarc).

    OBAMA IS SUPPOSE TO BE COMMANDER IN CHIEF. DOES HE HAVE A TOUGH TIME DOING THAT????????/

  10. Why did Obama replace the general who was going to disobey the stand down order and send help?

    just a note: we both end our post in all caps.!!

  12. We are all wanting answers and I cannot imagine what the families of these brave men are feeling. It is unimaginable such dereliction of his duties, Obama that is.

    Think about the decision Woods and others had to make under attack and Obama can’t sit a just GIVE A COMMAND.

  13. How would we be able track ODumbo’s travel log? Supposedly, he went to Vegas the next day. What if he went to Vegas that night and was smoking crack with the two negroes he visited? This would explain much of why he is stonewalling. He left instructions not to be disturbed while he was having gay sex and better living through chemistry. How can you issue orders when you can’t be reached?

    This was posted here if it will help answer your question.

  15. #13 Maybe because we get more upset as we are ending our comments.
