Posted on 09/12/2012 10:14:16 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
According to the White House calendar, there is no public record of President Barack Obama attending his daily intelligence briefing--known as the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB)--in the week leading up to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American members of his staff:
The last time prior to the slayings that the White House calendar publicly confirms Mr. Obama attending his daily intelligence briefing was September 5th. (The White House did not provide an official public calendar for September 8-10.) Mr. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden met with Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta at 5:00 p.m. yesterday.
According to a recent study by the Government Accountability Institute, Mr. Obama has only attended 43.8 percent of his Presidential Daily Briefs in the first 1,225 days of his Administration.

So, did Reggie Love roll over and wake Zer0 at 3 AM to let Zer0 know that his State Dept was under attack?
There is nobody at the helm. Obama is staying in the family quarters in sweat suites, and only rarely interfacing with Valerie Jarret and David Axlerod. He’s almost pulling a Carl Wilson or a Howard Hughes withdrawal syndrome. A handful of advisors relaying POTUS whispers are running the country.
Apparently the chair was indeed empty!
Just the fact that it’s the run-up to Sept 11th should be enough to warrant attending briefings. But I know he has important campaign stops to make.
I would call that dereliction of duty.
....he was campaigning,too busy....besides Hilda had it covered.
How prescient was Clint Eastwood using an empty chair to symbolize Obama?
It’s deja vu all over again
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
In the aftermath of 9/11, President Bush was mercilessly attacked by the Dems and the media for not acting on Clinton-era intelligence that terrorists may be planning to use planes. Since this White House and State Dept. has known since 2009 that our embassies have lacked proper security protection, and chose not to do anything about it, shouldn't they be held accountable for what happened yesterday? Don't worry...I won't hold my breath.
As long as Valerie Jarrett is even close to the bridge, I would suggest that there IS someone at the helm. Between her and Huma Abedin, the ship may very well be exactly on course and precisely on time (regardless of what part of the ship Obama is gracing with his radiant presence).
Obama is a traitor.
Obama issued a dictatorial decree giving Amnesty to a million illegals.That is unlawful as a president has no power to do this.
Obama has piled on 6 trillion in debt on the U.S. ensuring its collapse.
I can guarantee you this. That Muslims will get nuclear bombs and they will detonate them in U.S. cities and start a nuclear war. Can anyone dispute this to me now? Its not a matter of if but when . Islam will start a nuclear war , bank on it. Islam is evil. Islam is now in the laying low stage. As soon as they get enough nukes then they shift to war stage: http://www.faithfreedom.org
Perhaps he gets his daily briefing from the other side on his private Blackberry.
1) the braindead half of the country will still vote for him
2) the leftwing news media will never, ever abandon him
I'm not sure the situation is recoverable.
Dear American media; thank-you for covering for these incompetents. Oh, and there’s not enough soap in the bathroom to wash the blood off your hands on this one.
Are the imbeciles still attacking the site? I got a warning about it being an attack site :\
Is there any way you can get whitelisted again, or would it take lawyers?
“Make no mistake,” it wasn’t read. Orders are to put all intel on the teleprompter not in a written report.
I am going to request it be removed. Not sure what it will take though.
I just wrote this over the last week. It might amuse you.
Since the idea just popped into his head while he was waiting to go onstage, I suspect a Higher Power had something to do with the inspiration.
WE APPARENTLY HAVE NO LEADER. NEVER DID WITH OBAMA, BUT THE ALLEGED LEADER APPEARS TO HAVE QUIT WITHOUT RESIGNING.
Think a new thread about the problem and asking shadow for a tech ping would help?
Those who agree may be interested in reading this fictional book, Caliphate by Tom Kratman.

Did FR not have a thread a couple weeks ago that he hasn’t been briefed for the past three months?
Decided to go with (for this week):
HN O PE
O = his logo, but upside down.
There are now four other empty chairs on the road. I am told that one will have an old empty suit draped over it by the end of the week........
Now FOUR chairs on your road!
You did GOOD!
I know, 4 OTHER chairs!
We noticed my neighbor has a chair in her yard (we are in the boonies) She is also a member of a bridge club with individuals that are high in the local D party. WOnder what the other members are thinking?
since Jan 2009..
Wait, before I read your post, I need to watch whatever is on Cable TV tonight. Then, maybe.
Yep. And on campaign.
ANother fact to add to the empty chair commericial
1. Misses Intel Briefings
2. No new trade treaties during his tenure
3. Fails to meet with job panel
4. Doesn’t meet with congress critters of the R party
One would think he has NO time except to play golf and raise money.
Good for you, Lakeshark and your patriot neighbors!
Wonder if the emperor will play golf or campaign this weekend and leave Val at the helm, as American warships prepare for what may come in the area the emperor was intentionally the king of slackers, islamist sympathizers and security degenerates..
We're not there yet timewise, but ...
Amen, in Jesus’ Name.
Amen, and Amen.
