Barack Obama said he was very offended that critics have accused him of a coverup.
This is despite the fact that the administration called the terrorist attack a protest for weeks… Even though they watched 150 jihadists attack our consulate and murder our ambassador.

The Politico reported:

President Obama fired back at critics who have accused his administration of orchestrating a cover up over the September attacks in Libya.

“I do take offense with some suggestion that in any way, we haven’t tried to make sure that the American people knew as the information was coming in what we believed,” Obama told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in an interview that aired Monday.

In the aftermath of the attacks that killed four Americans, the administration initially sought to blame the deaths on a riot sparked by an anti-Muslim video in their public statements. The intelligence community later reversed itself, admitting the attacks were pre-planned and likely the work of terrorists or militants.

Obama vowed to hold individuals in his administration responsible at the conclusion of the investigation, if they’re found negligent.

“If we find out we that there was a big breakdown, and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable,” Obama said.

Barack Obama said his first priority was to secure the consulate. Yet we now know that the men on the ground called for help – three times – and Obama did nothing.
It Was Dereliction of Duty

“If we find out we that there was a big breakdown, and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable,” Obama said.

Let's review - four of our people died, apparently while "our people" watched and listened for hours and hours. Also, security was pulled before this event, apparently in an effort to 'normalize' the country - even after dozens of different types of attacks on the compound.

So, what's with the doubt about a breakdown, whether or not people did their jobs, etc.? There is no doubt but also no price will be paid. Based on the outcome, why not admit that something or a lot of things went very wrong?

“If we find out we that there was a big breakdown, and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable,” Obama said.

He means that in the same way he meant, "If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition,"

We're all just too stooooooopid to understand what he means.

I’m offended that the current occupant of the oval office is a traitor to his country, just so that he wouldn’t offend his co-religionists.

I am offended also. Offended that he thought we were so stupid as to buy that video line.

That being said, if a President “gives a directive”, do they give a directive that open ended? I don’t think so, in fact I bet the “directive” he claims he gave is pretty much standing military policy and anything the President has to say above that comes in the form or an “order” which is clear, precise and DOCUMENTED, so Lets see it MRRRRRR. President!

Obama says he’s offended by suggestions he hasn’t been forthcoming with the American people, about Benghazi.

Well Barack!

The American people are offended that you would excuse your foreign policy failures and the deaths of 4 brave Americans, by blaming a damn video trailer, or lack of perfect information.

The fact that you failed to act, and failed to take the blame, for the consequences of your indecision, means that you’re not qualified to be Commander-in-Chief!

Here is a transcript of the second debate on Bengazi.

http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=102343

Note when Romney corners him on terrorism,Obama says not “Yes” or “No” but “Please proceed”(made no answer).

Then when Obama is cornered again he says “Get the transcript.” Now, did Candy have a transcript handy? If so, was this not collusion between the President and the moderator before this to have a transcript on hand?

Then when Obama gets in a corner again, Candy says “But I want to move you on”(to a different subject).

Attack on U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya/The President’s Remarks of September 12, 2012

Gov. Romney. Yes, I certainly do. I certainly do. I think it’s interesting the President just said something, which is that on the day after the attack, he went in the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror.

The President. That’s what I said.

Gov. Romney. You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror? It was not a spontaneous demonstration?

The President. Please proceed.

Gov. Romney. Is that what you’re saying?

The President. Please proceed, Governor.

Gov. Romney. I want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the President 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.

The President. Get the transcript.

Ms. Crowley. He did, in fact, sir. So let me—call it an act of terror in the Rose Garden. He used the word——

The President. Can you say that a little louder, Candy?

Ms. Crowley. He did call it an act of terror. It did, as well, take 2 weeks or so for the whole idea of there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.

Gov. Romney. The administration indicated that this was a reaction to a video and was a spontaneous reaction.

Ms. Crowley. They did.

Gov. Romney. It took them a long time to say this was a terrorist act by a terrorist group. And to suggest—am I incorrect in that regard? On Sunday, the—your Secretary——

The President. Candy?

Gov. Romney. ——excuse me, the Ambassador to the United Nations went on the Sunday television shows and spoke about how this was a spontaneous reaction.

The President. Candy, I’m happy to have a longer conversation about foreign policy.

Ms. Crowley. Mr. President, let me—I know you—absolutely. But I want to move you on.

The President. Okay, I’m happy to do that too.

Ms. Crowley. And also, people can go to the transcripts and——

The President. I just want to make sure that——

Ms. Crowley. ——figure out what was said and when.

The President. ——all these wonderful folks are going to have a chance to get some of their questions answered.
