AWFUL!… MEDIA SILENT After News Breaks That Obama Was AWOL As Americans Were Slaughtered Needlessly in Benghazi

Today we learned the absolutely astonishing news…
Barack Obama was AWOL when Americans were under attack and murdered needlessly in Benghazi.
He was nowhere to be found.
He had one short conversation with CIA Director Leon Panetta… And that was it.
He went AWOL.
While Four Americans Were Slaughtered Needlessly in Benghazi.

The Examiner reported:

According to their testimony, the two men met with Obama at 5:00 p.m. on Sept. 11. That meeting lasted 30 minutes, they said. Afterward, they did not hear from anyone at the White House, including the president.

“A Defense Department timeline says that Panetta and Dempsey had been informed of the terrorist attack in Benghazi at 4:32 p.m.–28 minutes before they went into their meeting with Obama. At today’s hearing, Panetta said he informed Obama of the attack when they entered their 5:00 p.m. meeting. That was one hour and 18 minutes after the attack started and while it was ongoing,”

Panetta told Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) that Obama left operational details “up to us.”

“Did you have any further communications with him that night?” Sen. Ayotte asked.

“No,” Panetta said.

And, so far, no major media outlet has reported this astonishing news.
Anything to help Obama.

UPDTE: ABC did not discuss the revelations on Thursday night or Friday morning. CBS and NBC ran segments Friday morning.

    [“Chris, as I said, immediately when word of the attack came,
    thepresident was meeting with his top national security folks.
    He was talking to them well into the night. He was in touch
    with them during the day, as – during the next day as well.
    So, there is no question about the fact that he was focused

    I still want to know…where are the other people who were there at the time it happened? Why haven’t any of them come out to, at the very least, acknowledge that two of the men who died saved their lives and thank them? They were evacuated…but to where and who exactly were these other people. Why isn’t anyone asking about them? Barack and Hillary have blood on their hands. You can bet it has everything to do with gun running, just like Fast & Furious. The mainstream media need to be held accountable in all of this also.

    Like many have said, Obama was, most likely, sound asleep when he got the call. Either way, Obama just couldn’t be bothered to wake up and/or respond to the Benghazi emergency.

    You see, Obama forgot to remind us that too much golf, hoops, and lobster dinners can make someone with his frail build very sleepy.

    And then there’s the “lazy” work ethic that Obama himself admitted to having.

    It all adds up to three dead Americans and a well rested President.

    The media is deflecting for Obama. They repeat over and over that help could not have made it on time. HUGE misdirection. When the decision whether to send help was made, they did NOT know how long the attack would last. I could’ve last days. The fact is the decision was made not to send help. Only after that decision did circumstances arise that allows them to say there was not sufficient time to help.

    And you’re supposedly a democrat, right?

    What kind of loser lies about something like that?

  • Dr Dude

    Obama didn’t go to bed at 5:30PM EST. He handled the situation with his political team. Axelrod and Jarrett worked through the night to make sure everyone died and all evidence including witnesses were destroyed. I am positive that the crew who flew into Libya was held up for hours at the airport, by Obama. Does anyone think anyone would hold up US Marines if Obama gave them clearance? Not a chance.

  • At some point we have to realize Obama isn’t right in the head. Narcissism is the gentle term used. What he is, what he became because of his nightmarish liberal, whacked out upbringing, is a person who thinks only of himself. It is all about survival combined with a need to be validated and loved.

    What people really do not get is that these people appear to be more normal than normal people do because everything they are doing is an act. A life long play where they are the stars and everybody else is the supporting cast. They measure all acts against what they think normal people do, which often presents them to others as very smart and even keeled. (think Ted Bundy)

    Unfortunately, they are also very unstable when it comes to accepting responsibility and criticism because it undermines their self vision. If they believe they cannot make mistakes and that keeps them under control, any attack on that belief can damage them.

    Regular people know they screw up all the time and can take the criticism hit. We don’t let it affect how we see ourselves, because we see ourselves as imperfect already.

    How does this affect work? Simple, if Obama knows this is going badly, and it was partially because of his policy implementation, he will immediately distance himself from the unraveling in order to be able to say “Hey, I trusted the experts, THEY screwed it up. They lied to me. I’m the victim here.” Also, by kicking the can over to others, he also continues to hide the fact he isn’t that bright (he is thought a genius), isn’t that engaged (he reads sooo much and is so complex, according to his acolytes), and his cool aloofness proves he is always in control (when privately the little scared boy inside is screaming at the dark).

    I’m not surprised he bailed. He bailed on a number of issues. I’m not surprised those around him covered for him. He is, after all, their sainted one.

    The sooner we realize we are in the s**t with this guy, the quicker we’ll not be surprised when he does things that insure his survival, like reducing the chances of ours.

    And trust me, I know this personality from both professional and personal contact. After we are run over, he will claim it was our fault.

    #53 and #55

    You hit the nail on the head. Being absent is a convenient excuse. One only need be reminded of Axelrod’s insistence that Obama was present and involved with the situation from the beginning.

    They are starting to sound more like OJ Simpson all the time: “I was practicing golf in the backyard. Er, I was reading a book. Uh, I was taking a shower. Uh, I cut my hand by flipping my left hand around backward to brush broken glass into the sink and it caused a straight knife like slice on my finger…”

    It was a video. It was a protest. I was there and dealing with it. I didn’t get any requests for more security. Ok, it was a terrorist attack on the eleven year anniversary of 9/11 (which by the way if anybody cares to notice is year one for the anniversary. They didn’t attack in 2000, they waited until year 1, 2001. A ten year anniversary is zero. The next year is the real anniversary. Next big one will be in 2023 if they are consistent). I didn’t provide more security because the Republicans cut spending. I wasn’t there…

  • Amash

    Question that wasn’t asked: when you heard the story(lie) being circulated that a video was responsible for the attack, why didn’t you ask who started this story?
    My bet is that while Jugears slept, his disgusting minnions (Plouffe, carney, etc) huddled together and came up with the lie to help their incompetent saviour win the election. It should not surprise any one that Shrilary and Jugears didn’t answer the 3am call. This whole administration is a fraud. They are in way over heir heads. If Jugears was a republican, the media would be hammering for him to be impeached for dereliction of duty.

Sunday, when they did their site launch podcast, the libs used a denial of service attack to shut the podcast down …

    The hypocrisy and lawlessness we’re seeing coming from the left nowadays is stunning. I’m not surprised though. They’ve always been the “do as I say, not as I do” party. This latest assault on the first amendment rights of conservatives is a perfect example of that. Of course, the ACLU and the Department of Justice couldn’t care less …

    Obama was either had a late supper engagement where he went to some fat rich supporters home where he spent the rest of the evening, or he went to bed.

    Here’s what I know for a fact. Obama made arrangements with the Libyan Security Forces to protect our embassy people, he said this about two days after the attack when he was cornered by elements of the press and he was asked about the security denials of our embassy. He said, “I made arrangments with the Libyan Security Forces to protect our people in Benghazi. And that didn’t happen.” He look offended that he was being made to recall the fact that he trusted the Libyan’s and apparently something happened and they couldn’t do what they promised me they could do, is basically what he stated. He did not mention these arrangments ever again after that one single time. This is what happened in Benghazi that no one ever mentioned to the public.

    Obama is a Muslim, okay? His loyalty lies with the Islamic countries that America has caused much destruction and death of Muslim people’s over there. That’s the way he thinks, and believes he should do to support his obligations to the Muslim people in the Middle East and here in America. His history proves this out. So, what he wanted was that NO AMERICAN TROOPS WILL EVER STEP FOOT ON MUSLIM SOIL AS LONG AS HE IS PRESIDENT. That’s Obama’s promise to the Libyan’s. And he doesn’t want to know anything about Libyan’s being in bed with Al Quaeda terrorists. And when he found out that the Libyan’s had actually led the terrorists to the safe house where they found the Ambassator, raped him, then murdered him, and then dragged him through the streets of Benghazi, and put it on YouTube!

    Whether Obama actually was told about the demise of our Ambassator or not, all he knows is he was let down by people who promised they would protect our people. But here’s the mystery. Maybe they didn’t promise to protect our people, but rather they told him they would be in the area and if anything happened they might go over there to see what they could do. Doesn’t that sound more likely? Obama believed in his twisted mind that they had just promised to guard our people and that’s why he was so visibly upset when he told the press that it was the Libyan’s who were supposed to have taken care of our people.

    My point is Obama was in fantasyland in regards to what was going on in Benghazi, and he didn’t want to hear anything else from Pennetta, Clinto, or anyone. That’s why he just went on to bed, or went to his fund raiser and then went to bed. He wasn’t worried because the Libyan’s were doing what they told him they were going to do, and it didn’t involve American troops coming and killing any more Muslims. His thoughts, “The bullies have killed enough of my people, I will not allow them to step foot on Islamic land as long as I am President of this nation.”

    The biggest evidence of ego, incompetence, disrespect for Americans and the ineligibility of Obama as president could not be more clear then what happen in Benghazi.

    Other presidents would be required to have a hearing. Other presidents would have calls for impeachment.

    But, in today’s world, where we live in a nation where this government has free reign to do and say just about anything they want with no accountability and this nation will suffer serious repercussion in a Justice system with no punishment for its actions.

    According to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, as reported at The Weekly Standard, President Obama was completely aloof from the events in Libya on September 11. He neither asked nor ordered anything. He did not respond to information sent to the White House. He was not involved at all, during the seven-plus-hour attack that resulted in the deaths of four American government employees, including an ambassador. A few months back, when, for the sake of argument, we were all giving Obama the benefit of the doubt on being human, albeit wretchedly so, I felt compelled to qualify

    That night the seals were told to stand down,no access to the survirors to this day, the FBI wasn’t allowed to go and investigate for several weeks.
    But, the WH did manage to tell the world about Petraus affair, even though they had known about it for a year, he was tossed under the bus as a red herring to deflect interest.

    Even though this makes news and once again, they attempt to keep Obama protected. I do not believe for one moment that Obama was absent at this gathering. I believe Barack Obama is the only one that could have given the “STAND DOWN Order” which no one in the room could over rule, outside calling Congress into emergency session to maybe call it off.
    Obama came under scrutiny when he decided to go into Libya, He declared he was justified as long as he didn’t order “BOOTS ON THE GROUND” by sending troops into Libya. IF he had increased security by sending additional personnel to beef up the Embassy, they would have been MARINES, HE is bound by his promise not to send troops in. Thus, when this attack happened, he refused to send troops to rescue our citizens. This way He avoided having Congress come after him and force the stoppage of their gun running operation, that is ongoing. These citizens were expendable, collateral damage, to allow his covert actions to continue. BARACK OBAMA is deep into the “Dictator in the making” phase of his regime’s Coup of the United States. OBAMA, a low down Devil in a presidents empty suit! BYW: Have any of you wondered… Where are the THIRTY or so witnesses who were rescued at the time of this attack? Who are they, where are they, why have they not been interviewed, why have they not testified, why do we not even know who they are? Are they at Gitmo, dead, in prison???? No one knows but Obama!
