Skip to comments.President Obama on Libya attack on Oct 26, 2012
Posted on 10/27/2012 5:11:28 AM PDT by FR_addict
Obama yesterday in an interview said he gave three clear directives the minute he found out about Benghazi.
1. make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to.
2. we're going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn't happen again
3.find out who did this so we can bring them to justice
Why weren't they fired?
When did he find out about Benghazi?
Was he in the Whitehouse?
Did he go to the situation room?
Who watched the videos in Real-time and where did they watch them in real time? the state department, the Whitehouse situation room? CIA headquarters?
I couldn't post this because of the source, but wanted to make sure FR had Obama's interview from yesterday.
One of Greta's guest last night mentioned what Obama had said, but I didn't get his name.
I say the American people go around the MSM and demand answers from this POS President, who refused to answer Clark's questions yesterday!
His order was to lie lie lie..this looks like they let those men die to creat a situation that was supposed to bring the nation together and get the press of the economy which was giving obama a big headache on the campaigne trail. he needed it to look presidential. OOps it was botched. too much news got out.
Wow, it took them SIX WHOLE WEEKS to come up with THIS ?
Like we’re going to believe this liar in chief?
Obama is simply lying about this. He can do it because the LSM let him
At one point I had some sympathy for him because I thought he was a tool or pawn.
oh yeah 6 weeks later he has a coherent answer uh huh
What attack? it was a work place event
If he had gone into the situation room and directed, or appeared to have directed a rescue mission, he would have achieved the most stupendous , smashing election victory of all time. Since something apparently was even more important to him than that, whose interests is he protecting?
IIRC, it was DAYS not WEEKS when W went before a joint Session of Congress off 9/11/2001 to name the perps and announce his plans.
I guess investigations take longer when you got Vegas and Letterman to attend to.
Lies, OTOH, can be cranked out hourly.
whose interests is he protecting?
muslim lives, apparently.
The fact he is talking about this is telling- must be affecting polling for him.
Guess he is figuring out these “bumps in the road” are really screwing up his campaign of Big Bird, Binders and Bayonets....
Update: BlackFive confirmed with a retired Delta operator: The fact that ground personnel were painting the target says there was a Spectre on station.
Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me.
One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not paint a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station.
Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.
If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta [sic] says) that means that the Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.
If that SEAL was actively painting a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!
BOMBSHELL: US Troops Wouldn't Have Been Painting Targets on Ground Unless There Was Air Support..
Obama said he gave a directive to do everything possible to help our people. So who decided to tell the former seals and other people at the annex not to go and help. If that happened and Obama actually gave the directive above, why isn't he outraged that his order was defied?
According to Petraeus, the CIA didn't give the order to stand down. So who did? If the Secretary of Defense was responsible for the stand down order, why is the President protecting him? Petraeus did not deny that there was an order given. He just said the CIA did not give the order.
They are painting themselves in a corner.
When someone tells the truth from the beginning, they do not have to lie over and over and coverup anything.
The media is next on our list. They have to be taken down. And we CAN do this by organizing boycotts against advertisers on network news programs.
One reference to the order mentioned on Greta;
TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University
Obama Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harms way;
I heard yesterday they are blaming it on “The Fog of War.” The Fog of War, my Ass!
“1. make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to.”
And exactly HOW did he do THAT???
