Skip to comments.ABC: The Benghazi Drip-Drip-Drip
Posted on 11/01/2012 1:41:00 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
As he left his Marine One helicopter Wednesday evening and walked to the residence of the White House, President Obama did not respond to a question shouted out by ABC Newss Mary Bruce about when he would begin to provide answers to the numerous questions building up about what exactly what went wrong in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.
The president smiled and continued walking.
Perhaps he couldnt hear the question over the din of the choppers blades, but either way the smile and wave almost Reagan-esque in style underline the apparent strategy the president specifically and his administration in general have seemed to adopt when it comes to the myriad inquiries about the decisions that led to the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens: they are deferring detailed answers to the investigation and critics say running out the clock until Election Day.
As of now, the White House has disclosed that President Obama was informed about the attack on the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi at roughly 5pm by his National Security Adviser Tom Donilon as he was in a pre-scheduled meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey. At that meeting, senior administration officials say, the President ordered that the U.S. begin moving military assets into the region to prepare for a range of contingencies.
But beyond that, the White House has punted, saying the Accountability Review Board established by the State Department is investigating the matter and what went wrong. No detailed tick-tock, no information about the presidents involvement in decision-making. In addition, theyre preparing for a closed-door hearing of the Senates Select Committee on Intelligence on November 15.

Mary Bruce will be fired by ABC, and get a letter from the IRS.
The One heard the question. He is choosing to ignore it until after the election. If he is elected, anyone in his administration who didn’t repeat the party line will be fired and audited. If he loses, we can hope the House will vote to impeach him.
Barry will supply the answers at his impeachment trial. Right now he’s too busy lawyering up.
Well, I’m thinking ABC/Jake Tapper isn’t one of the mainstream media outlets with that bombshell ‘stand down’ email that is supposedly out there and being withheld.
I am going with NBC/MSNBC and CNN.
“Barry will supply the answers at his impeachment trial. Right now hes too busy lawyering up.”
Yeah. It takes some work to learn how to say “I don’t recall.”
Ok, thank you ABC. May they now hound him, everywhere he goes....
A blog on their website. They won’t broadcast anything before the election
It's great that Tapper and Mary Bruce from ABC are pursuing this, but how about seeing stuff like this actually get extended coverage on World News Tonight and not just schlepped off to some political blog.
Tapper and Bruce must have polling internals showing Obama is gonna get creamed. Either that or they have made provision to move out of the country someplace beyond the reach of IRS auditors.
CNN did some good work (if distasteful) with Stevens’ journal .... timing of the info they released was perfect to show Hillary up as a liar. NBC/MSNBC ... no way they’ll release anything, 100% Obamabots.
How did we know we would need one?
Who ordered the drone?
Who ordered the drone to NOT AID US CITIZENS?
Do your JOB ENEMAMEDIA!!!!!
Talk..Talk..Talk..Talk.. UNTIL BOOM the election happens Obama is re-elected and this ALL GOES AWAY..
Its a fearful for conservatives when a Marxist has the entire federal givernment under his THUMB and the MSM hiding in his shorts.. as a brown streak..
Looks like the conservatives have been out “SKID MARKED”..
AND they selected a hemorrhoid as their candidate in the primarys..
REJECTING ALL conservative candidates..
This election makes me feel all “dirty”.....
Jake Tapper - no R. (But he might be;)
What a croc! The fox guarding the hen house. This is like eric holder 'investigating' the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation in Philly.
Speaker Boehner. The voice of truth screams for the appointment of an independent counsel.
Why ask the question?
We all know the answer, and the Media isn’t going to print it.
Not before the election anyway.
Sorry you are so confused. Hope Tuesday brings you some measure of comfort.
And no, barry is not going to win.
rather than the drip drip of what’s known, I prefer hearing the metal clanging of jail cells closing off those responsible for this heinous crime against Americans. This is not for those who pulled the trigger(they deserve a bullet) but those who stood by and watched brave Americans die.
Obama believes he is above all wrongdoing and believes the MSM will cover up the cover up! Clinton is off getting her lawyer team to provide the best non-answers to the inquiry that is coming post election, hoping that Obama wins and they can control the flow of information. Thank goodness for the constant reporting by FOX....imagine that this whole thing would have been swept up under the false story of the video!
Meaning, nothing will be investigated that happen outside State Departments responsibility, why it was blame on a video, what did Obama order, why didn't we respond with assets other that State Department assets.....
More bombshell leaks to hit in the coming days...you can count on it. The Coward pretending to be POTUS will not get away with his stonewalling.
[ Sorry you are so confused. Hope Tuesday brings you some measure of comfort. And no, barry is not going to win. ]
Click your heels together and if yer shoes are red enough you may end up HOME... Dorothy.. OK.. and the pooch too..
Alrighty then - may the force be with you :)
