Obama knew about the attack, ignored three requests for help

Cold political play could cost him the election --

The Benghazi debacle may yet make Mitt Romney president.

Barely 10 days before the election, the persistent whiff of scandal surrounding Barack Obama exploded into the banner headlines of a cover-up – at least among certain press outlets.

Everything changed Friday afternoon with the stunning revelations by Fox News that CIA operatives defending the embattled consulate in Benghazi, Libya, called three times for emergency assistance while the attack was in progress. Each time, they were shamefully turned down.

One of those defenders, Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, was apparently able to use a laser designator to pin-point the location of the mortar that eventually killed him. It would have been an easy shot for American pilots had any been ordered to respond.

Another new and critical detail: An American drone was overhead transmitting live video of the battle scene below.

Col. Ken Allard, retired from the Army, is a former NBC News military analyst and author on national security issues.(emphasis supplied)

His status as former NBC analyst is hardly surprising.

BTW, to be clear, I am NOT comparing Obama to Peter. Just certain things repeat throughout both history and the Bible.

Simple version: A single act it a happening. If it happens twice, that may be coincidence. If it happens three times, that’s intent...

Obama couldn’t be bothered, he had to attend a fundraiser.

When Romney wins, They should be parachuted into Benghazi with a bayonet each, and just as much ammo as U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith had.
And President Romney should give them the SAME SUPPORT
    that they gave Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone S. Woods.



That would be justice!

He acknowledges the first phone call;

TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/22/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 harm’s way;”

Yesterday, Obama said: “The election has nothing to do with the four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened.”

SEVEN weeks after the massacre, the president of the United States STILL doesn't know what happened in Benghazi????

Geraldo had Charles Woods, father of former Seal Tyrone Woods on live, to which Geraldo was bowing his head down and shaking it in a no gesture as he just had a retired General on to give cover for Obama not being able to send the military in, to which Mr Woods was saying(paraphrased) in the interview "it is better to die the life of a hero, than live the life of a coward"

Sending troops to Libya would conflict with Obama’s campaign message of “ending wars” and withdrawing troops from around the world. To “win” on this issue, he wanted to avoid deploying troops to Libya AND he needed to make it sound like terrorist groups were weak enough that deploying troops would no longer be necessary around the world. Hence, that leads to the White House trying to spin that this was a “spontaneous” riot which could not have been predicted and has no connection to organized terrorism.

Armed our not, they could have simply crashed the drone into the mortar site to give our people a fighting chance. I have felt, h### known that hussein and many of his cohorts belong in prison. This debacle and the ensuing cover up just convinces me even more. He belongs in inmate orange jumpsuits for life.

Obama treated this as if he were watching a sequel to the Hunger Games. Live feed from the arena. Pretty cool. Great sport. I suppose we should be grateful he wasn't placing bets.

Not that the MSM would report it if he had.

Remember this from Obamas lips:

“We are our brothers keeper. We are our sisters keeper.”

The Marxist Mohamedan in the Oval office didn’t lift a finger to help his brother in Bengahzi when he needed him most.

This incident may (hopefully) stir up decent folk, but alas, what I see (hear) it has little impact on Obama supporters.

The day of running criminals out of office is nearly over!!!

He didn’t say “secure their lives.” He said “secure those Americans.” He has secured them. Their dead bodies have been returned.
