Mr. President, who let them die?
Union Leader ^

Posted on 10/27/2012 9:51:28 AM PDT by Perdogg

(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.

Go to CNN’s website main page and search the page for Libya or Benghazi. Nope, no results.

Surely the U.S. news tab will! Nope, nada.

MSNBC? No mention of Libya or Benghazi on their main page.

ABCnews.com? Buried near the bottom of the page - under “Politics” section.

CBSnews.com? NOTHING!

He won’t answer the question. His pat response is “it is being investigated.” Yes, investigated AFTER the election but no worries, if he somehow manages to win I’m sure he’ll resign when even the Senate turns on him. But then we will be stuck with Biden. HORRORS!!!!

Mitt better win!

I’m offended and OUTRAGED as hell that Harvey Weinstein/National Geographic and the Obama regime have teamed up to make a comedy about SEAL Team Six and are going to show it just two days before the election. The SEALs deserve better than this. All Americans should be pissed!

Accusing Obama of being responsible for these deaths is as stupid as Libs who blamed 9/11 on Bush.

Both sides are amazing to me on issues such as these.

This story needs to be read by all those FReepers who think that Romney is the same as Obama. I am no Romneybot, I would’ve much preferred Newt or Santorum, but Romney isn’t so bad as I believed in the primaries - and he’s in a different league than Obama.

The First Rule of Holes is to stop digging. In this case it means getting rid of Obama. We can worry about cleaning up the Republican Party later; all energy must be applied to first getting rid of someone like this scumbag.

The American news media have proven themselves completely irresponsible and traitors. They have deliberately and intentionally, with full knowledge chosen as a free act of the will to hide this treason.

BIZARRE equivocation from you.

Obama could have had gunships in the area to act on lazer targets within an hour. He chose not to.

Whereas *nothing* Bush could have done would have uncrashed the jets into the Pentagon and World Trade buildings.

I went to the Washington Post website this morning to see if they’d been following up on the Benghazi story.

Nope. No front page mention. Curious.

New York Times? Nope. Same thing, not a word on the front page.

You know, if you were paranoid, you might think that there was some sort of conspiracy of silence going on.

But I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

LA times covered front page: Romney campauign does business with firms if aides.

Obama shoring up the black vote.

I sent this letter, which will not be published.

Editor LA Times:

On Friday, the CIA announced that they did not instruct the two Navy Seals to not respond to the attack on the Benghazi Consulate. Various military commentators indicated that the US had the capability to respond to the 8-hour attack including from Sicily. The father of one of the dead seals made public comments about being insulted and lied to when he went to meet the arriving body of his son.

The Times chose to ignore these developments giving us stories about Romney doing business with his aides firms and Obama shoring up his support amongst the black community. Where is the WH explanation of the failure to provide security in advance of the attack, failure to approve a response to the attack, and covering up the nature of the attack for 14 days? Where is the call for a full discourse from the president? He doesn’t need time for an investigation. He knows what was done and not done. Several of the decisions had to be made at his level. Instead he went to bed and then to Vegas to raise money.

The more who know the truth about the death of the Americans and the gross negligence of the administration, the less likely the president will be re-elected. Thus the cover-up in which you are participating. The Times failure to provide proper coverage of this major failure in national defense and protection of US citizens working in Libya is a serious breech of your responsibility to keep us informed and provide a safeguard against governmental malfeasance. Look no further when considering why, more and more, we seek news from other sources.

Remember the media frenzy over Abugraib? All over the news 24/7. No one died at Abugraib.

The conclusion is obvious. The American news media are the direct arm of the current administration. The media are as responsible for the deaths as the current administration.

When you criticize one of the Rat Party nutcase Administrations -- even in the most solemn matters like this -- you can expect to catch hell from a Rat Party government and many of their MSM employees..

"[An idiom meaning you screwed up], and those boys died!" President Clinton had Couple Arrested for Insulting Him!

Glenn and Patricia Mendoza were reacting to the 19 airmen killed in a Saudi Arabia suicide bombing (1996) and confronted President Clinton. The Chicago police and the Secret Service got back to the Mendozas immediately -- they were arrested -- and IIRC the IRS and DoJ kept getting back the them for years after that.

We must all be prepared to help defend the families and America against the Rat Party and MSM employees attacks on the families.

I hadn't read your post when I posted mine.

I think between us we covered almost the full extent of what used to be called the MSM.

There are two scandals emerging here. The one in the WH, and the one involving the press’ efforts to assist the WH in its cover-up. As I heard Rush say yesterday, it's as though Woodward and Bernstein were helping the Nixon WH keep Watergate quiet in the midst of an election.

As an institution, the media is hopelessly and terminally corrupt and beyond redemption.

I was pointing out that the Libs attacked Bush, saying he could have prevented 9/11. The government had warnings about it.

It’s stupid, I know, but blaming Obama for the deaths in Libya is just as stupid, in my opinion.

To be clear, I hate all politicians, because not a one has shown me that they can be trusted.

At one time, the press cared about getting stories for their papers to print.

Now the press only cares about promoting a left-wing ideological agenda.

Wrong.

The press now only cares about its own survival and this is caused by the people of America caring more about the Kardashians than the country’s survival.

Oh. You are AMAZED?! How charming. Obama and Madame Bill Clinton ARE going to ‘splain WHY they watched like spectators in real time for SEVEN hours while our people in the Benghazi embassy (who had asked for extra security) were being murdered. . . while an aircraft carrier off the coast of Italy, about two and a half hours away were waiting for orders from our BRAVE POTUS to send fighters; an order that never came, because POTUS couldn’t let his dear “Arab Spring” and “Al Quaeda is on the run” fairy tale disintegrate into VIOLENCE - now could he? After all, he MUST be re-elected - for our own good. The a$$.

You're quite the contrarian today, aren't you?

First, the rather remarkable statement that holding the Zero WH responsible for what happened in Benghazi is like the left blaming Bush for 9/11?

And then telling me that the press doesn't have a left-wing agenda?

I guess everyone’s entitled to an opinion, even a foolish one.

By quickly ordering all planes in the US grounded, Bush may have prevented additional hijackings on 9/11. There were reports in 2001 of other plots which did not succeed.

What an incredibly stupid thing to say. I don’t recall Pres. Bush watching 9/11 on TV and refusing to help. Bamster may have not been able to stop it from starting, although from all reports, additional security was requested and denied, but he sure could have done something about it when it was occurring.

He refused to help, therefore, he is responsible for the deaths of four Americans.

The press cares about the survival of the rat party and their hero.

You are full of it. We had F-18s 23 minutes away sitting on go. Obama would not give the order.

The entire AFRICOM was biting at the bit to go help. Obama would not let them.

“Remember the media frenzy over Abugraib?”

Remember the media fury over Valerie Plame?

That was totally NOTHING, and one of our guys, Scooter Libby, went to jail. A republican administration should never again appoint a special prosecutor for anything.

Let the media whine and cry until some hurricane or tornado comes along to distract their little brains. No more self-anal prosecutors just because the stasi stenographers are having a hissy fit. You can never appease them anyway.

The correct question is not “Who let them die”. Obama has been asked that a few times and he easily dodges it by saying “We’re doing an investigation to find out what happened”.

The correct question is “Mr. President, did you prevent the military or CIA from responding to the calls from help from Benghazi during the 7-hour battle?” This question requires no “investigation” because Obama know exactly what he did - or didn’t do.

Help was ready to go and, (based on the "laser designator" story) was already on the scene.

Instead of ordering help in for our citizens, the order was, "Stand down!". Only POTUS can issue those orders. Øbozo has blood on his hands.

Why, pray tell is Øbozo NOT to blame?

Sunburn? No worry...

Let me get this straight. You believe that Obama was watching the ambassador being murdered and did nothing.

There was total chaos at the embassy and you believe that a ship could have found the exact perps and vaporized them before they could bleed into the masses.

And yes, I am charming.

Anyone who does not believe that the press is most concerned with their own survival (which won’t happen) is the one with the foolish opinion.

Everything in business is about money. By the time one reaches adulthood they should be pretty clear on this topic.
