Posted on 10/26/2012 4:19:34 PM PDT by Palmetto Patriot
In an interview with a Denver TV reporter Friday, President Obama twice refused to answer questions as to whether the Americans under siege in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, were denied requests for help, saying hes waiting for the results of investigations before making any conclusions about what went wrong.
After being asked about possible denials of requests for aid, and whether its fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and wont be released until after the election, the president said, the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened. These are folks who served under me who I had sent to some very dangerous places. Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do.
President Obama told KUSA-TVs Kyle Clarke large that we want to make sure we get it right, particularly because I have made a commitment to the families impacted as well as to the American people, were going to bring those folks to justice. So, were going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesnt happen again but were also going to make sure that we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks.

What does he need an investigation for?
The decision on whether or not to send assistance was his and his alone.
Surely he knows what his decision was.
Everyone knows he left those people twisting in the wind.
” What does he need an investigation for?

Look in the mirror, Obama.
Someone with inside (apparently) knowledge claims Obama made the decision not to intervene at 5 pm:
That is the question that will sink the Obama campaign and Presidency.
It leads directly at his footsteps!
Not just Obama has BLOOD on their hands....so does HILLARY, PATREAUS, PANETTA, Charlene Lamb etal.
You cannot kick this down the road without “an investigation” which buys time.
...he went to bed and let people die...
I’ve concluded my own investigation. This was a staged kidnapping attempt, created solely for political gain for O, gone terribly wrong. Why else would the whole thing be video taped by our drones? People died, Obama, Clinton, Panetta, lied. The American people cried.
Susan Rice said it was IN FACT because of a video. 5 times.
6 weeks later, Obama says he’s investigating.
Jay Carney said it was because of a video and there was no indication that it was a preplanned attack.
This is what Barky ALWAYS says when he wants to dodge an issue or question. Always.
You're right. Nobody under him would have dared make that decision, particularly with the election less than a month away. Obama decided to cut the losses and sacrifice those in Benghazi rather than risk offending Libya or the chance of the rescue going wrong.
“the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened.” he said with anger and desperation in his voice.
To find out what this president is thinking one must ask Axelrod, Jarret, Alinsky, or Marx.
He left instructions: When they are confirmed dead, call me in Las Vegas where I will be fund raising. BO
The election had EVERYTHING to do with the denial for help. He was afraid of a ‘Carter Iran rescue failure’ consequence for his campaign. He sacrificed four American lives for his campaign.
Another gutsy decision by Obastard.
Odd how he stuck with the ‘Anti-Islam YouTube video’ cover story even though the planned hostage-taking backfired on him. The video narrative was going to be used to explain the motivation leading to Stevens’ kidnapping.
Jake Tapper is going to win a Pulitzer for continuing to push this. Brett Baier from Fox should get it, but the keftists on the Pulitzer committee will never let Fox have it. After the election, the liberal knives will come out and they will all cover this.
The thing is, even a failed rescue attempt is better than none, politically. It shows you tried not to leave anyone behind. People understand that in the fog of the situation, not all rescue attempts succeed. But we want the military to try.
I think this is oddly related to Obama being anti-life. He really does think some lives don’t matter as much as others, I guess. Our culture, at its gut level, does not view it that way.
Wasn’t it risky to stage this kidnapping with all those weapons moving from the annex and main complex to Al Qaeda? Too much risk of exposure. That’s 30k weapons!
And if Amb Stevens was involved in the gunrunning, which he had to be since he was practically sitting on them, then if there was a kidnapping plot, they would never let Stevens make it out alive. Dead ambassador, that wouldn’t work well for Osamas reelection plans.
so how do we reconcile this? we are still missing a major part of the puzzle.
The press sees the blood in the water now. Yes they are liberal, but there comes a point when they remember that they will be there long after Obama, and they will not go down with his ship. This might be that time.
Jarret is the font from which all answers will flow. Obama does not wipe without her approval. His entire reign of error has required her OK. He does not act without her ‘guidance’. Period.
He probably doesn’t know squat because she never let the info get to him thus ensuring deniability.
He’s still responsible of course. But I’d bet the farm she made the determination to stop aid from coming.
I tried, but I just cannot listen to this POSOTUS speak. (you can figure the acronym out on your own...)
Romney needs to hit Obama the communist hard on this Obama refusing to give aid to Americans who were being attacked by Muslims
This is freedom and Americas last stand. If that communist Muslim Obama wins then the socialists achieve their goal of destroying freedom forever. Do everything you can to elect Romney and so save freedom.
Yeah, Jarrett is REALLY the moslem president—Bath-House Barry her moslem hand puppet:
“Jarrett is a member of African-American and Chicago royalty. But her story and her life begin in the Middle East, not the Midwest. She was born in 1956 in Shiraz, Iran, about 570 miles south of Tehran.”
Hell! She was voted IRANIAN of the DAY!
No wonder they watched while our men died!
Bring these folks to justice?
Is that why he arrested the video maker a couple of weeks before the FBI was allowed into Benghazi? Yea, he sure was on his way to justice! /s
Guess he was truly hoping this video thing would stick...but, the bs meter couldn’t cover for him.
I think it possible that he thought the lives of the attackers were more important than those of the defenders. Remember his anti-colonial roots.
I am holding out hope for Petraeus. My son served under him, and respects him.
Petraeus’s big mistake? Assuming that the den of vipers in D.C. had the best interests of US at heart, thinking that he could help.
I could be wrong, of course. I have been before.
Number one - It was a stupid choice to send a known homosexual to a muslim country. If zero wanted to reward him with an ambassadorship, he should have sent him to a safer country.
Not that his queerness had anything to do with his murder, at least I haven't heard that claim yet from zero.
I’ll betcha if the Ambassador was black he’d done a rescue. Wanna bet?
Yep, Dingle Barry was concerned about protecting lives.
Lives of his Muslim brothers, why if he had sent in the troops some Muslims might have died. Horror!
That’s the problem with betting sometimes: nobody to bet against you.
Looks like ABC has started covering this???
Buckwheat could be indicted and sentenced to hell by the devil himself, and the liar obuma would insist that he’s The Lord’s perfect angel.
“twisting in the wind,” or tied out as sacrifices to Allah?
I think one of the Seals was black. Obama doesn’t care. He hates Americans of any color.
And OJ is still looking for the real murderer.
