Mr. President, who let them die?
(Note: With the President due to campaign in Nashua today, his answer to our Editorial Page Director Andrew Cline's question, if he has one, would no doubt be of great interest to New Hampshire voters.)
Every time President Obama is asked why the U.S. embassy in Libya was denied its multiple requests for extra security at the Benghazi consulate before Sept. 11, he changes the subject. No wonder, as yesterday it was reported that not only were previous requests for extra security denied, but three additional requests on the night of the attack also were denied.
FOX News reported that the two former SEALS killed in the Benghazi raid had requested military support three times after reporting that the consulate was under attack. Their requests were denied by someone up the CIA chain of command. Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty rescued several personnel and recovered the body of diplomat Sean Smith from the consulate. At the CIA annex nearby, they came under mortar fire. Their request for a strike on the mortar site was denied. They were later killed by a mortar attack.
Who denied their request for assistance, and why? The families of those brave men deserve answers, as do the American people.
Africom says they were never ordered to respond. The cia is trying to lay this on the dod, but the responsibility is ALL obama’s. Period.
Obama, Hillary, Patreaus, Panetta, Lamb and all those Generals have BLOOD on THEIR HANDS!!!!
IMO Amb. Stevens was meant to die. He was deep into the White House gun running that was another Fast & Furious, times ten. He knew too much. Was Obama, Axelrod, Hillary afraid he’d talk? Never forget Ron Brown and Vince Foster and a few others. It’s not healthy to be an insider with this gang.
I sure hope the Romney administration investigates this and prosecutes the former administration officials (if they aren’t pardoned). Not like Bush who swept Clinton stuff under the carpet and said let’s move on.
“There’s a broader lesson to be learned here,” Mr. Obama told “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft at the White House. “And I — you know, Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. And as president, one of the things I’ve learned is you can’t do that. That, you know, it’s important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts. And that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make ‘em.”
Romney will move forward as every new President does. If he digs up the dirt, the same will be done to the departing Republican administration the next time the Dems take power. It is the way of Washington.
Plus, consider the fact Romney has a number of complicated and politically polarizing issues to deal with that will consume considerable political capital and the goodwill of the people. Rolling back Obamacare, tax reform, and spending cuts will be fought by the media and te Democrats. He will have e big enough fight without also dealing with the potential the American people will perceive him as mean spirited for investigating and prosecuting Obama administration officials.
Who denied their request for assistance, and why?
The major TV networks are ignoring this story, but now, as the local newspapers are printing it, the local TV stations will begin to carry it.
The story will overwhelm the abccbsnbccnn cabal and they will cover it if only to protect their own asses.
barry is as cooked as the dog that he ate.
I concur, except not Gen. Petraeus, and not anyone at the CIA.
"Petraeus Throws Obama Under the Bus" Petraeus will likely get fired now but he's not going to fall on his sword or take the heat for any cowards (luv it!).
Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.
Oh PLEASE!! Patreaus himself came out and said it was the VIDEO!! He is a LYING LIAR COWARD DEMOCRAT also!! Why do you not think so after this??
Those two ex-SEALS got a straight ticket to heaven...”no greater love than to save the life of a friend”.
A similar situation happened many years ago with historic reactions.
“this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.” ...
Jesus forgave Peter but I am not forgiving or forgetting the White House or the SOBs in MSM!
My personal view is Victoria Jarret, as she did with the OSAMA event, told ZERO” do nothing”!
Then the corruption will continue unabated and Romney another puppet.
Mr. President, who let them die?
I wish all those attending his rallies would hold up signs asking this question. Since the MSM won’t ask, we the people must.
Unfortunately, the 0zombies and those paid to attend his rally’s won’t hold up signs or ever ask this question. And, if anyone protested outside of his rally, with signs asking “Who let them die?”, the MSM wouldn’t even cover it.
