Skip to comments.Bolton: Thereís no excuse for the White House to say that Obama and Biden didnít know about Benghazi

John Bolton says that it doesn’t fly for the White House to say they didn’t know about the security needs of Benghazi. He says of course they won’t be involved in the nitty gritty of hundreds of security decisions around the world, but Benghazi he says is very different:
But in a high threat mission where you’ve had evidence of Al Qaeda attacks against other missions, where for goodness sakes the Red Cross has withdrawn from Benghazi – the Red Cross that lives in the environment of war thought it was too dangerous – that’s something that the President, Vice President, and certainly the Secretary of State should be aware of ALL THE TIME.
Watch the full interview below:
I hope Bolton gets a top spot in the next administration.
This apparently is the “We didn’t know” administration with an “I can’t recall” secretary of state. Great combination.
He better be SecState...
-—— I cant recall secretary of state——
I can’t remember
My mind’s in a blender
It;s jello, jello, jello, jello
That needs to be a Romney commercial. You make the case well within the time of a 30 second spot.
Sorry Ambassador, on this point I disagree. There is an excuse: the Obama administration is simply incompetent!
Empty chair alert
Here is why they knew or should have known if Obama attended his meetings (which he did not)
Benghazi was a hot spot.
There are missing weapons that we supplied to terrorists. Those arms could be used against us. They likely were used against us in that attack.
The CIA is behind the cover up.
You will notice that the Blind Sheik was asked about in the Libya hearing. I believe some deal was going to go down with the Blind Sheik. Maybe in exchange for the arms. Maybe something else.
It went wrong.
Now it’s a matter if who takes the fall.
Some believe that there was going to be a staged kidnapping of Stevens and that the exchanges were going to take place as part of his release.
How were they supposed to know?
Those scurilous intelligence people were sneaky about informing anyone.
They snuck it in at the President's Daily Briefing when they knew Barry and Joe were still sleeping, on their way to golf or involved in some other more important personal business.
btw, I don’t believe that Rev. Terry Jones is just a Reverend who sometimes get mixed up in international events. The PJ Media story brings him up.
I think it is possible he is involved with our government in some kind of way.
“There is an excuse: the Obama administration is simply incompetent!”
Not only is there an excuse, there are several:
1. Obama needs to get himself re-elected.
2. Hillary can’t take the fall, she plans to run in 2016.
3. Biden was told, but he just laughed at the Intel guy.
4. Obama will not let the death of some gay-pissant islamo-sacrifice stand in the way of term #2.
5. Obama told you, it was all due to that movie nobody saw, so you all need to move on.org.
Maybe in exchange for the ambassador and a few other hostages kidnapped during the raid, but something went horribly wrong and they were killed.This ruined the plot to have Barry look like a hero,so much for the October surprise.
I was going to point out that Bolton forgot that this isn’t a competent administration.
One big question is this:
Why was Stevens is a dangerous area like Benghazi with basiclly no protection. Why was he in Benghazi and not Tripoli?
Was he set up? If so, who set him up? he met with the Turk ambassador and according to reports, Stevens walked out of the counsulate to say goodbyes. At that time all was quiet. Shortly after, all hell broke loose.
As another poster pointed out on another thread:
You have our weapons. Give them back. We will give you the Blind Sheik. But we have to have a cover to snow the American Public who will be outraged.
Let’s stage a kidnapping.
We know that Petraeus KNEW there was no protest but told House Intelligence Committee the event was due to an out of control protest.
We know that that a group of Senators sent a letter asking Clapper, Brennan, and Petraeus to explain their position. No explanation yet.
So why did Petraeus lie to the House??? It has to be something big.
The only way you can exchange missing guns for the Blind Sheik would be a staged hostage situation. Obama would have to have some kind of excuse to transfer the Sheik .
Last week I read that he had a meeting with a doctor in Benghazi.I’ll try to find that info.
This was a orchestrated effort to suppress our freedoms. They used the film as an excuse and as a bonus tried to make Romney appear unfit to be our next President.
They failed and most everyone knows it.
Like most political hacks they would rather stick with a lie or replace it with a new lie rather than level with the America people.
Col. Hunt, yesterday on the Howie Carr Show, said that the minute Ms. Lamb received the call that the embassy was under fire at least 12 agencies, including the WH situation room, the CIA, NATO, etc, were notified and they all listened to the entire 6 hours of the attack, and there is NO WAY that the WH didn’t know what was going on.
He was very upset.
