Here’s the 3rd debate where Obama says when the initial phone call came, he gave an order to "secure those Americans";

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;”

Does anyone find it odd that no picture appears him in the siutation Room when the Libya attacks were happening but as soon as SANDY hits the east coast, a picture of him sitting in the Situation Room “monitoring”, is plastered everywhere. Does anyone see anything wrong with this???

I'm pretty sure when obama referred to securing our personnel, he was referring to all the other embassies. This point keeps getting made that obama said he immediately ordered that the US do everything it could to secure Americans in Libya....he was referring to shoring up security at embassies, not an attempted rescue. Here's the second debate. Second debate

oBAMA:

........"So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team and I gave them three instructions.

Number one, beef up our security and procedures, not just in Libya, but at every embassy and consulate in the region.

Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure folks are held accountable and it doesn’t happen again.

And number three, we are going to find out who did this and we’re going to hunt them down, because one of the things that I’ve said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them."...........

Now his statements are idiotic anyway.....as soon as the consular was being overrun, he wants to investigate who did what? Never mentions what he or anyone else did that night to help secure anyone at that time.
