Breaking: Obama Takes Blame for Benghazi Catastrophe: “Ultimately as Commander in Chief I Am Responsible”

Obama Fiddled as Benghazi Burned–
On Friday Bing West, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense, told Greta Van Susteren that if Obama gave the order to secure the consulate in Benghazi there would be a paper trail,

“If that actually happened the way President Obama said it happened, there’s a paper trail and I think people reasonably enough can say, “Can we see the order?” because hundreds of others supposedly saw this order.

So far no one has offered any evidence that Obama made the order to protect our men on the ground in Benghazi the night of the attack.

Then there’s this…
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.

Barack Obama never made the order to protect our security officials in Benghazi.
Even though he was watching the terror strike from the White House.

This weekend Barack Obama told Morning Joe that ultimately he is to blame for the Benghazi consulate disaster.
The Politico reported:

President Obama vowed Saturday to hold the right people accountable if it’s found that there was breakdown in communications within the intelligence community ahead of last month’s attack in Benghazi.

“What my attitude on this is is if we find out there was a big breakdown and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable,” he said in an interview with “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski conducted in Nashua, N.H., according to a report on

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

So why now? Why is he finally taking responsibility for the massacre and coverup?

    Mr. President, you need to resign today. You are the one that is responsible for this mess

    “I don’t shy away from responsibility.” -Obama When, Where, Why, What and How? Remember the press who actually asked questions?

  • snap boy

    saying he’s responsible is very definitely not the same as saying he’s to blame.

  • myohmy

    Obama the most arrogant, incompetent and narcissistic that leftists has offered in a long time. People died and another person is languishing in prison because he dared to exercise his free speech and this impostor is directly responsible. Can we impeached this impostor now? Wake up, America.

    “What my attitude on this is is if we find out there was a big breakdown and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable,”

    Yeah. Right. That is the narcissist’s “admission”.

    “Just wait ’til I pin this on somebody… Boy, are they gonna get it”.

    Bush gave the order to stand down.

  • great unknown

    Right. I’m responsible. Now let’s move on to something else…

  • Faye

    O thinks by saying the phrase” as commander in cheif I am responsible” that this will end the discussion. It will for the socialist msm cheerleaders who were being forced to cover this story. They now have O’s words to put out there to excuse them from any further reporting on this story.
    Grow some more GOP and put this out……O says he is responsible for Benghazi….. don’t let it stop till all the dirty little secrets have come out.

  • Whiskers54

    2 senior military officers were releived of their commands just prior to this announcement by Obama. I smell a twist here and the lame stream media will do the cover up.

  • Faye

    #6 Ragspierre, those were my exact thoughts too. O is now actively looking for someone else to blame. Wonder who it will be? Vagas could make some $$s on this game.

    Words mean NOTHING when it comes to this bastard.

    Saying “I take responsibility” is not the same as telling the truth and making the facts known to the American people – and correcting the situation. The President could say the word if he wanted to and all of the facts would come out. He didn’t do that before and he hasn’t done it yet.

    No one has acted in good faith here or upheld their oaths of office – the Pentagon, CIA, White House, State Department. They all appear to have gone into reflexive me first butt-covering mode instantly – damn the nation. Lots of D.C. bureaucratic dead wood to clear out and major house keeping to do.

    Yes, YOU are responsible and it is your head that should roll. If you had any backbone which we know you do not (you couldn’t even find the courage to order our military to fight for our people), you would resign. We have to fire you and that will make my day, Mr.President. Nov. 7, 2012 will go down in history as the first day that America could raise their heads high for being proud Americans once again!

    Dear President Obama,

    Resign. Real leaders, men of honor that accept such responsibility are not superficial “men of letters and words” but men of action. Just as you have senior military leaders resigning because they could not permit your inaction and let people die without rescue, you have disgraced the nation, the institution, and ultimately failed the people. Nobody in our nations military forces trusts you. More than half the nation realizes a fundraiser is more important to you than people’s lives or jobs. You are only liked by shallow false friends, parasites who are your groupies only because you give them redistributed loot, trinkets taken by force from hard working, honest Americans.

    If you stay in office, you will most certainly not only be impeached, but imprisoned. Many will support sending you to the international criminal court for war crimes prosecution for your illegal drone targeting that New Yoru University and Stanford University determined has killed many thousands of innocent civilians. Mexico may seek extradition for the thousands murdered by your Fast and Furious program you have attested as your own program through your claim of executive privilege.

    You will need the compassion of the people to soften the consequences. The time to resign is now, Mr. President.

  • Sasja

    I don’t know exactly how we’ll accomplish our mission to not let you scapegoat anyone for your indifference and abhorrent behaviour but we will.

    So, Barry, not planning to sleep through this are you. I’m sure the nation is impressed. By the way, I thought you could lower sea levels, why not just stand on shore in front of the storm and order it gone?

    big deal, like hillary they take responsibility with no consequences.

  • Walt

    In fairness,he also took responsibility when interviewed on “Yo MTV Raps”(I know that isn’t a show anymnore,channeling the early 90s).

  • Tom63010

    He thinks this will buy him time until after the election.
