NOW The Truth Comes: Criminally Irresponsible Obama Basically Hid in Closet During Benghazi Attack!
Reaganite Republican ^ | 08 February 2013 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 02/08/2013 2:10:37 AM PST by Reaganite Republican

Can you say 'Dereliction of Duty'?


So Senator Ted Cruz (TP-R, Texas) is the man who FINALLY got to the bottom of what the White House/MSM have worked so hard -for months- to obfuscate: yesterday the GOP rising
soaring star forced Leon Panetta to admit in sworn testimony that SoS Hillary Clinton was
simply not available on the day the Benghazi consulate was attacked... nowhere to be found.

Yes, the US Secretary of Defense had ZERO contact with US Secretary of State Clinton until long after four American heroes were dead. Where the hell was she all day, partying with Huma?

But far, far worse is fact that Barack Obama -who twice now has taken an oath to protect us all- held but ONE brief conversation with Leon Panetta -were the President was made fully aware that our consulate was under seige- at a (previously scheduled) meeting on 9.11.2012... that was it all day:

________________________________________________________________________________

...Obama failed to communicate in any way with him that day.

Panetta said he simply didn’t hear from anyone at the White House.

He also said logistics and fear of more attacks prevented a quicker, more aggressive U.S. response to the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

But for days, even weeks, the Obama administration attributed the violence and deaths to a mob that was upset over a little-known online video purporting to be about Mohammad, a move that still has not been explained.


________________________________________________________________________________

Most assumed the Administration's bumbling (mis)management occurred in some crisis center, or at the White House war room... in reality, nothing like that ever happened: nobody held any meetings anywhere, Panetta seems to have been left all by his lonesome to cobble-together a response he felt would not offend Dear Leader's bizarre concerns and loyalties.

Obama not only gave no orders, but didn't even see fit to check-in with the Secretary of Defense (nor State) at any point in time on evening of the attack- the US Commander-in-Chief appears to have been completely and utterly detached.

Remember in November, when Obama said he 'gave orders' on that tragic day to 'keep our people safe'? Under oath -as opposed to Obama's unquestioned BS parroted in the press- Panetta also revealed in Senate testimony that operational details of the response, the decisions on what resources were available to help, and all other decisions were left 'up to us'... doesn't sound like Obama was giving anybody any orders -except maybe the White House chef- does it?


Panetta also made clear he has always thought it was a terrorist attack -that our response was restrained by fear of similar, follow-up ambushes of US responders- and seemed to have no idea where the harebrained 'anti-Islam video' theory trotted-out by the White House ever came from.

This squirelly, lying traitor Obama needs to be impeached-
no time like the present, you know.


Didja ever think God might hand righteous Americans an opportunity to free ourselves from the repulsive Obama regime's yoke? I have: perhaps the Benghazi Four's unfortunate sacrifice will come to be something more than just symbolic, if we can prosecute this sinister, incompetent putz for SO flippantly neglecting his sworn constitutional duty- thus liberating the country.

And the response to this blockbuster testimony from the MFM (Obama-fellating media) ?

Based on the headline that would mean eventually he would have to “come out of the closet” which wouldn’t surprise me either.

Not just for you, but for all.
Like I said before.
Military Scramble Order Overseas:
First, I've got over 26 years working in military control towers, most of them as the watch supervisor/crew chief on duty.
Scrambling aircraft to respond to urgent situations normally starts at the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
The scramble order comes down through a secured phone call on a direct line.
In the attack on the U.S. embassy on Benghazi, the drone control would have been from MacDill AFB, FL, by U.S. Central Command, and would have been in direct contact, or maybe even remote control to the situation room in the White House.
Watch this 4 minute 48 second video Inside the Situation Room.
The pResident SHOULD HAVE issued to order to scramble fighters to Benghazi, to get there in minimum time.
Then he SHOULD HAVE issued a second order scrambling AC-130 gunships to respond to Benghazi, and have them stand by for more orders. This should have been controlled by the pResident, who should have monitored and responded with guidance from his Situation Room, Read

They need to IMPEACH the Arab-Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama II, (a.k.a. Barry Soetoro) for intentional negligence resulting in the deaths of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith.



That would be justice! Obama is solely responsible for this.

Let's look at some of the facts.
So, let us remember. For a better understanding of the issue, read HISTORY of Mohammed ( spelled variously; Mahomet, Muhammed, Mehmet, etc. ). then watch William Federer explain it, from Jan. 25, 2012 at CC Chino Hills, CA. It's a MUST WATCH for everyone,Christians, Athiests and even Muslims!

As retired military myself, I've seen the damage of "keeping secrets" about bad leaders.
Obama is EVIL, pure and simple.
Please watch Glenn Beck with Trevor Loudon & his book "Barack Obama and the Enemies Within".
Then watch the 29 minute 13 seconds video Trevor Loudon- An Urgent (and chilling) Message for America.

Obama may be feigning "incompetence," thinking he's too sly, being a "wolf in sheep's clothing" since his mentoring was from Fabian Fascism..
The "Establishment Republicans" will probably NOT want to IMPEACH the TREASONIST Barack Hussein Obama II.
But it's better for the country that Obama suffer the penalty, the strongest penalty for his actions, and his inactions.
Let's look at the Presidential Oaths of Office.
Now who among us really believes Obama did any of that ?
To Obama, that was "Just words. Just speeches! "
Damn him ! Damn him to hell !

I'll finish this with asking you to read Watch the 18 minute 56 second documentary video "Absolutely Uncertain" at "theBLAZE.com" or on YouTube.com, narrated by Irina, the 23-year-old “Jewish New Yorker” and a former Obama supporter .

One other suggestion, read DID OBAMA WANT STEVENS DEAD?
The language is a little abrasive, but spot on.

Obama really doesn’t care about other people except when he needs their vote and monetary support. Four Americans a world away. Why should he care about their well being when they aren’t doing anything to benefit him?

If this hangs together, it will go down as the most irresponsible, cold blooded action of any U.S. administration.

I am having a hard time getting my head around this; it is too ghastly to contemplate.

So is there a White House schedule or something that would tell us what he WAS doing? Watching a movie? Partying with friends? What activity would be more important to Obama than protecting the nation? Talk about a 3 am phone call! This “PRESENT-dent” is a bad joke. Is there a log book or something?

So we have a situation here that is quite perplexing. We have an incompetent President. A confidence game has been played upon the American People most likely financed by foreign sources, perhaps Islamic sources, but most certainly not friendly to the goals, and purposes of the United States of America, and at the same time this situation has exposed the GOP incompetence as a political party in opposition to....well....anything other than the RINO memberships personal well being.

We are left with nothing to protect the people as far as representation from the old line GOP, and are totally dependent upon those that are new to the system of government, and have the best interests of the U.S. at heart such as Ted Cruz of TEA Party support.

I don’t have the time to complete my train of thought here, but I will only say at this point that we are in a rock and a hard spot, and we’d better get behind the TEA Party, and those showing desire to lead in the correct direction immediately to push out those with their own personal agenda such as the GOPe, or the agenda of our enemies such as the United Nations, Saudi Arabia, and George Soros to name but a few.

end rant ‘cause I have to go offline NOW.

Sounds suspiciously like we have a bunch of dopers and drunks at the top and they, frankly, just don't care ~ intoxication is first on their list, and it's the only thing on that list, and that's all there is to it.

Pinata was sober? Didn't he want the Gub'mnt paying to send him home to his ranch in California every weekend? ~ and yet there he was stuck with all the dirty work ~ must be liver problems ~ give it up or die condition.

He's a better man than I thought, but he's not Presidential caliber either ~ yet he tried.

Thank you for putting all this together.

Obama must be impeached and removed from office.

There is no remedy nor excuse for his dereliction of duty, for Clinton’s dereliction of duty, and for Panetta and Dempsey to sit on their rear ends and not follow up while a SOS and a CIA facility are under attack and the Ambassador is missing, then found dead.

Yes, under questionable circumstances.

Someone once wrote: First watch 8 minutes 16 seconds of video titled Romney defeated Obama - if not for voter fraud.

Then ... read and think about this.I don't completely agree.
I believe there WAS ENOUGH Voter Fraud to throw the 80 Electoral College Votes from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Florida.
I also believe that had Romney SAVAGED Obama, like he SAVAGED the Conservatives that ran against him in the Primary, Romney would have gotten more votes in the General election.
So yes, it's Romney's fault, but there WAS ENOUGH VOTER FRAUD to steal the election for Obama.
Romney might have won, but with Obama's Criminals running the "Justice Department", they'll never admit Romney won.

Black States = States Obama won by Voter Fraud. Click the state for more information.

You are right. It’s bad that we have in the White House a President that hides in the closet when the phone rings at 3 am. A Secretary of State who is busy eating at the Y when te phone call arrives and cannot be disturbed, and a Republican party that says we have to grin and bear it.

I mean none of us are so stupid as to believe neither of these people could be reached. They were both frightened of making a decision. Scared Spitless.So they hid.and waited to see what Panetta would do, and if he screwed up they would pounce on him like Tigers.Panetta knew his limits and would not exceed them and that sealed the fate of the 4 men.

This is without doubt the greatest exhibit of cowardice of its leadersip ever witnessed by this nation.Bar none.

But I expect no better from a President who refuses to release his past and a woman who allowed her husband to stuff cigars in his girl friend.

I am not going to argue with you about voter fraud. It is obvious that it exists, especially in the big democrat controlled cities. The only question is the extent of the fraud.

The fact is that a moslem/communist/non-citizen/homosexual (pick one or all) is sitting in the White House. He is furthering a moslem/communist/non-citizen/homosexual agenda. Barring impeachment, what is the end game?

I think Hillary was probably afraid to make a decision, because she has been one of the worst, most incompetent SOS' ever, only doing whatever Obama has told her to do. When he wasn't there to tell her what to do, she was too afraid of him to go ahead on her own.

There's a big fear component here, and it's fear of Obama among his closest associates. They're afraid they'll make him angry, and I suspect they've already seen the way they'll be hunted down, publicly pilloried and possibly even killed if they oppose him.

I think Obama didn't care what was happening in Benghazi and simply went to bed and left orders that he was not to be disturbed, and every single one of these people was afraid to bother him and afraid to make any decisions on their own.

The fact that Zero didn't communicate with Panetta has to be coupled with the fact that he took off for a fund-raising event.

Pay attention Republican Party. PLEASE! This is your talking point.

Thank you Ted Cruz! And micro hat-tip to Panetta, who told the truth.

Obama was probably hanging out with the Anti-American celebs he loves during this time.

This was the one question, I wanted asked from the beginning. Where were Obama and Hillary? Romney wouldn't ask it and he lost the election because he didn't. It never made sense Romney didn't ask the question.

Love Ted Cruz. Forget Rubio.
