    November 5, 2012 – Chris Wallace interviewing David Axelrod

    “Chris, as I said, immediately when word of the attack came, the president 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 on this.”

    ‘Obama AWOL when Americans killed’

    [Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says President Obama was out of touch
    completely the night four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens,
    were killed in Benghazi, Libya.

    In his testimony to Congress today, Panetta said that the operational
    details of the response, the decisions on what resources were available
    to help, and other decisions were left “up to us.”]

    oh brother, didn’t he/they say he was on top of it, and
    described himself/him as being heroic in his attempts??

    btw, Panetta also gave the order to down OBL..

    a bit more..

    Got it.

    Obama was briefed then let the folks he hired for the job do the job.

    Scandal! Fats and Furious! Benghazi!

    Another fake scandal fizzles out. You are now 0 for your last 30.

    Please proceed Governor.

    Obama was “absent” was he? Is that a surprise?

    How can anyone forget our leaders’ responses when the call came in to Washington from Benghazi:

    Obama: Why did you wake ME? You KNOW I have a fund-raiser in the morning!

    Biden: Don’t you say a f’n word! Someday I have to be able to deny I knew anything about this.

    H. Clinton: Oh, go away until tomoprrow – what difference does it make anyway?

    There are two lessons I take from all this.

    1. This administration’s “absence” started a long time before September 11, 2012. The Pres, VP, and Secy of State knew the danger was rising weeks before September 11. One of two actions was necessary. Either reinforce the embassy, or evacuate those poor bastards. This administration did neither – a complete abdication of leadership and decision-making.
    2. By flying off the next day to a Las Vegas fund raiser, the president showed he cared more about money than he cared about American lives. Not only that, his first instinct was not to face the situation but to run away. His actions demonstrate inability to face reality, and inability to subordinate personal interest to the national interest. This was shameful, cowardly and totally self-centered.

    If it would have turned out good he would be taking credit for it.

    So was Hillary apparently.

    “Neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to the secretary of state during the 8-hour attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey, “In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what converations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?”

    “We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton,” Panetta responded.

    “And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?” Cruz asked. Dempsey confirmed this.”

    They used available laser capability targeting the attackers. Why would the SEALS use this technology if they knew help was not coming? Were they lied to and told it was coming when it wasn’t?

    Obama administration warned of possible
    attacks, but failed to take precautions

    [Sources close to U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration revealed that White House officials apparently received warnings that there were threats made to attack as many as seven U.S. missions in the Middle East, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as early as September 4. Sources also revealed that additional warnings were received a few days later, with similar information, but that all of the warnings were largely ignored by the administration. Normally when such warnings are received by the administration, the threat level is raised at U.S. installations around the world. At this point, there is no evidence that the Obama administration communicated the warnings with Consular officials in Libya or Egypt in advance of attacks that took place Monday in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo, Egypt, leaving the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead, with eight others wounded, including some U.S. military personnel.]

    Jharp keep making excuses, that’s all you can do for the liar in chief. Do you think the TelePrompTer reader would have let his wife moochelle or kids there with that security? Same with Hitlary? For chelsie? For Bill she would have pulled all security out.

    By the way. Are you a Buckeyes fan? I saw the same name on a bucks forum the other day.

    Obama Orders Launched Fast and Furious


  • http://Nah,he'llblameitonBush mountainwilliam

    So many lies in all this, it’s like a bucket of snakes. Don’t think it’s even possible anymore to find out the truth. You know some of his cabinet and some of the military have to be lying. Is there nothing they will not stoop to for the great one?

    “Jharp keep making excuses”

    No need to make any excuses. Obama isn’t running for office again.

    He already won. In spite of your fake scandals.

    And yeah, I’m a Buckeye fan. And Big Ten fan. And a fan of the MAC too.

    None of this testimony makes any sense. Is Panetta lying? Is Clinton lying? Is Petraeus lying? Probably. I hope Congress keeps up the pressure for the real story. Ask General Hamm. He knows the story. He was relieved of his command 10 seconds after he gave the order to help the so-called Consulate out. Ty Woods wouldn’t have painted a target on the bad guys if he thought he wasn’t going to get any help. No one’s story jives with what we know.

  • Warren Peece

    “He already won”.

    And the American people, including the four butchered in Benghazi, lost. But like Obama’s gem of a Secretary of State said, “What difference does it make?”

    Jharp, you and your president are a disgrace.

    Suggestion for a cartoon—-based on today’s hearings-
    2 empty chairs with telephones ringing—-one empty chair for o-bow-mao and the second one for hilary—–neither one could take a Benghazi call !!!!!!

  • Lightwave

    So either Brennan perjured himself, Panetta perjured himself, or Hillary perjured herself. And Hillary’s gone.
