If the order was giving to assist against the terrorist in Libya, in the situation room, after about 1 hour, do you start to get anxious about where’s the reaction forces that are know to be close enough to get there first?
Initial phone call to Washington(which would have been approx 9:40pm at the consulate);
SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.
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;
Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't Tyrone Woods killed by a motar shell from one of the very mortars which could have been destroyed had Obama actually tried to secure anyone?
This Benghazi thing is the culmination of every bad thing I've thought about this president.
I've no doubt that Valerie Jarrett arranged the stupid video thing, along with Hillary and her pal Humidor.
Now we find out that as Americans begged for help it was denied them.
Oh, and did y'all hear about Biden?
The man whispered, at Dover AFB as one of those Seal/Contractor's body arrived "Has your son always had balls as big as cue balls?"
Forgive if I offend but that's what my boy Biden said.
Are these the Keystone Kops or what leading this country?
I don't doubt that Benghazi is the end of Obama's administration. Even if he wins the election, he will be impeached. As he should be. And once we get beyond Sandy and this looming election, the American people will finally understand the total of this Benghazi thing.
I use my daughter as benchmark. Yes she knew about Benghazi, not to any detail and believe that she and granddaughter know now.
She was on Facebook last night and begins to ooh and ahh. "Oh Mom, those people in Benghazi were begging for help and were turned down. This lady at my church just posted a link to the story. And those two Seals were heroes...."
Granddaughter pipes up and wants to know the story of the heroes. So I launch into a long rant about Benghazi at some point daughter tells me to calm down.
Folks, we've got big news stories, plus a somewhat simple attitude by the pubbies that...well maybe we oughta wait till the election.
But it just keeps getting worse and worse and I do know the whole story, been reading everything I get hands on.
This story is so bad, no way will they be able to get past it. Just my daughter's surprised and horrified reaction told me everything about how the American people will react once the news gets to them.
And it will. Don't doubt me. Thank me very much.
HE IGNORED THEM!
This dereliction of duty on the part of the CIC may not be prosecutable, but--as Charles Woods, the father of the SEAL who disobeyed the order to "stand down" said last night-- it is still MURDER!
