Former National Security Adviser Bud McFarlane: For Obama to Do Nothing During Benghazi Attack is Dereliction of Duty
Video at link...
Former National Security Adviser Bud McFarlane told FOX News today:
You dont just passively allow Americans to remain under attack for eight hours at a time when you have forces within range and do nothing. The Secretary of Defense was in the White House at five oclock within an hour of when the attacks started. He could have told him, Yes. We have special operations peope and F18 aircraft that could be deployed right away. To have known what he had available, to have known that Americans were under fire, and to have done nothing, is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a Commander in Chief from a president of any party. Outrageous.

Breitbart says Obama watched from the Situation Room.
Did he have popcorn?
Not hardly, pilgrim:)
Call it what it is.
Anyone still wonder why he picked Biden to be his VP?
Yes, McFarlane is one of the good guys.
“Did he have popcorn?”
probably, i think that it is alright for muslims to eat popcorn.
i know he wasn’t munching on porkrinds. they are taboo.
a cic that cannot command a toy boat in a bathtub.
in some situations, a decision must be made immediately. that is called LEADERSHIP!
God, how I loved Reagan, a Real Man! a real Leader! WWRD?
all i have seen is lies, and the shifting the share of the blame.
no one is responsible? if no one is responsible, everyone of them should go.
none of them will take a leadership position. the obamanation is a boat without a rudder, a mast or a wheel, or a captain.
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Critical Incident Report" alert. He did nothing.

There are three scandals here...
Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.
The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
ONE man deserted his post!
0bama Is A Deserter!
That is a situation where a President is supposed to forget about politics long enough to say “Go get them”
Come on Leon and Dave and whatever your first name is Dempsey. They don’t want you in Cuba or China. You can’t go there and request asylum. They’ll just send you back. Let’s quit playing these word games. The truth about the money is going to come out and then Obama and Hillary are toast. Then, it will be your turn for the toaster. Way too hot.
This was a full-on terrorist attack, with road blocks made in advance and if 0bama did indeed watch this in the situation room he clearly LIED and made a concerted effort (Susan Rice, etc) to cover up the fact this was a terrorist attack. 0bama was obviously worried about the draw-down of Stevens' security becoming known, and the overall repercussions to his re-election campaign. Public knowledge of his doing deals with terrorists (Fast & Furious II) was perhaps his main concern.
Panetta should be called before Congress and asked to explain how it is we don't send military to beat back terrorists from taking and killing our Ambassador. If our military can't overcome risk, why do we have one?
What’s amazing through all of this recent news is how non-chalant Obammy is about it all.
I actually would have appreciated if someone in the obamanation would have done the right thing for the sake of the country.
it was not about politics, it was about American citizens.
the obamanation has essentially said to our men and women in uniform and those in harm’s way that we do not have your back.
Apparently, it IS about politics, and he ISN'T one.
that’s the problem. in a situation like that, politics be damned!
narcissist in charge. he is the center in a Godless universe.
When one is a devotee of the Alinsky School of Political Thought, one cannot simply "forget politics" when one "can't let a good crisis go to waste". It goes hand-in-hand with the Progressive Movement.
Not being snarky; but I couldn’t help but to notice your tagline. I wonder if anyone has noticed that activity is already underway but the initiators are on the enemy side of the lines.
Everything to a leftist is political.
What your kid eats in kindergarten is now political. Literally everything.
“”But, I thought this was just a ‘protest over a YouTube video’.. How risky could that’ve been?””
I like that. You’ve been able to come up with the perfect retort. Why couldn’t we have had anyone in the media that fast on their feet to put that same question to Carney or anyone else who needed a punch in the eye for their lies!
You’ve been able to keep your wits about you while I’m been losing mine. I barely know my own name after this debacle and tragedy!!!
As they were when those words were first written.
2. Leaders — true leaders — know that you can only train and strategize just so far. When the decision is made to GO, then success or failure will be determined by those forces that are sent. They will improvise, adapt, and overcome their enemy. Conversely, those same folks on the sharp end of the spear also know that failure is a possibility and they go anyway.
When GEN Eisenhower wrote his “Knute Rockney” speech for the D-Day invasion of Europe that was released when the invasion began, few people know that speech had a partner that was never read. In that second speech, Eisenhower informed the public that the invasion had failed, there were many casualties, and that the failure was his responsibility, and only his. Where's your leadership on this Barry? You're one excuse after another, pointing fingers at everyone, and you're completely missing in action. This is UNACCEPTABLE. The buck stops in the Oval Office and that means you, Mr. President.
This is what happens when America makes a Muslim our Commander-In-Chief at a time when Muslims are killing Infidels. Score four more for 0bama.
Clowar & Piven is 0bama’s MO.. That includes fomenting distrust in the gov’t/military among our soldiers; Trying terrorists in civil courts. Ft. Hood as ‘workplace violence’. Stripping counter-terrorism manuals of references to ‘Islam’. Forcing LGBT upon our military. BS Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan. Now this in Benghazi.
