Former National Security Adviser Bud McFarlane: For Obama to Do Nothing During Benghazi Attack is “Dereliction of Duty” (Video)

The men on the ground called for help – Obama did nothing.
It Was Dereliction of Duty


Former National Security Adviser Bud McFarlane told FOX News today:

“You don’t just passively allow Americans to remain under attack for eight hours at a time when you have forces within range and do nothing. The Secretary of Defense was in the White House at five o’clock within an hour of when the attacks started. He could have told him, “Yes. We have special operations peope and F18 aircraft that could be deployed right away. To have known what he had available, to have known that Americans were under fire, and to have done nothing, is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a Commander in Chief from a president of any party. Outrageous.”

More… This comes from reader Tom.

Yesterday, a California radio show called The Dark Secret Place, hosted by Bryan Suits–a combat veteran of Desert Storm, Kosovo, and Iraq–interviewed a former member of the Combatant Commanders In-Extremis Force (CIF), which was in Italy. These are the “firefighters” of the U.S. military, who are always on call. Their gear and weaponry are always packed, and they’re used for precisely what happened in Benghazi. They could’ve been in Benghazi very quickly.

This veteran says Panetta is lying about deciding that it was too risky to send in troops because they didn’t have enough information. The CIF is always sent in, regardless of the risk. He also said that the information Panetta had–real-time video from overhead, exact locations, exact identities of the Americans involved–would’ve been the most the CIF would ever have had before a mission. They’ve gone in before using only hand-drawn maps.

Finally, this veteran said that no general would’ve advised Panetta against using the CIF, because this is the unit’s job. They’re more heavily armed and trained than the Delta Force.

    And if this was bush or any repub pres…impeachment proceedings would have begun or he would be stepping down. What’s worse..obama allowing this or the mediacovering it up

    It might be a dereliction of duty if Zero’s actions or inactions were due to ineptitude. Just as possible, and more likely in my view, is that Zero had some treasonous reasons to let the attack proceed. That’s why his outward response to has been one lie after another. It’s enough to make me hope there really is a Hell. Being struck dead by lightning would be too little punishment for him.

    Our little-boy-king has flirted with treason his entire Presidency. He finally got caught! Benghazi-gate will go down in history as Watergate on Steroids, providing we don’t let it be written off the books by our new progressive story tellers.

  • Oliver

    what is going to take to:
    a) get the media to cover this story?
    b) have this scumbag president arrested? (TODAY, preferably)

    Americans don’t need an “authorized official” to tell us what we already know. At BEST this was criminal negligence. Obama didn’t care, or wanted, these men dead. These are not recognizable American values.

    Sacrificed at the altar of a failed Commander in Chief.

    obama lied, Americans died. The MSM only josb is to cover for their ineptitude in not vetting this affirmative action community organizer 8 year ago.

  • Lars

    Original WH plan was to kidnap the ambassador and trade for the blind “sheik”prisoner in NY, thus setting up more surprise attacks. Stupid appeasers always lose big time.

    Let’s face it. Obama was trying to avoid an Operation Eagle Claw or Blackhawk Down moment. They were not sure what the situation on the ground was so they were not going to send in support. It was politically better to lose handful of people then potentionally lose addition personnel and assets in a failed rescue.

  • Commander-in-Deceit

    Which color would you like your prison apron to be?

  • Indiana

    Since there isn’t a chance that Obama will resign…..our only option is to vote him out next week. Otherwise….this scandal will haunt his presidency for four more years…..dragging America into a third world status….kicking and screaming. I for one dread that scenario, it makes me sick thinking about it.

  • Muslim Apologist

    This was an outgrowth of our perpetual outrage. Sorry.

    I think all this Benghazi stuff was just made up out of thin air. NOTHING happened in Benghazi, especially no Americans were killed and most assuredly, an American Ambassador couldn’t possibly have been murdered. That would have been historic news, BIG news and the Washington Post and New York Times would put it on their front pages and demand answers as to what happened and when. What POTUS knew and when he knew it and what he did to remedy the situation. So NOTHING happened in Benghazi. Nuthin’ at all.. Nope, not a thing. Or we would have read about it in the “paper of record”, the illustrious New York Times.

    America should be very afraid what this lying traitor will do before Mitt Romney is sworn in.
    I believe this POS is capable of things that most Americans could ever imagine.

    We are ready for most anything.
