BREAKING...New Pentagon Benghazi timeline damns Obama (never in situation room)
11/10/2012 | barryobi

The Pentagon has just released their version of the 9/11 timeline and I think it is very interesting and damning to Obama. Specifically, we know that Panetta, Obama, Biden, and Donilon were at the White House for a previously scheduled 5 pm meeting. The attack had been going on for 50 minutes before Panetta was notified, and he was aware it was ongoing ..........................Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and his top military adviser were notified of the attack about 50 minutes after it began and were about to head into a previously scheduled meeting with President Barack Obama. The meeting quickly turned into a discussion of potential responses to the unfolding situ ation in Benghazi, where militants had surrounded the consulate and set it on fire

Now is where the plot thickens. It appears that POTUS 'delegated' the problem to Panetta. We know POTUS called Bibi Netanyahu and spoke with for an hour AFTER the attack had started and was still ongoing..............

By Lynn Sweet on September 11, 2012 8:18 PM | President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed Iran and other issues in a hour-long phone call on Tuesday night, the White House announced--along with a statement that Netanyahu, contrary to news reports, never asked for a meeting with the president.

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obamas-september-11-phone-call_658027.html

Why was no picture of POTUS in the 'situation room' taken that night, showing him dealing with the crisis? We know after the OBL raid, pictures of him came out right away. During the election, there was POTUS in the 'situation room' monitoring Sandy. We can now surmise the reason there was no situation room picture taken is because HE NEVER WENT THERE.....

From the Pentagon timeline released today...............

As that was happening, Panetta and Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, left the Oval Office and went into a series of meetings in the Pentagon with senior leaders to discuss how to respond to the Benghazi attack and assess the potential for other outbreaks of violence in the region. Between midnight and 2 a.m., Panetta began to issue verbal orders, telling two Marine anti-terrorism teams based in Rota, Spain, to prepare to deploy to Libya, and he ordered a team of special operations forces in Central Europe and another team of special operations forces in the U.S. to prepare to deploy to a staging base in Europe

The only conclusion that can be drawn by the Pentagon timeline is that when informed of the attack by Panetta at 5 pm DC time, Obama punted on responsibility for managing the response to the attack, which was still ongoing.

Even more damning is that at 5:30 DC time, the CIA rescue team was returning to the annex with the body of Sean Smith and the others rescued there. They would have certainly reported at this time they had recovered everyone at the consulate with the exception of AMBASSADOR STEVENS. Unless the meeting with Panetta, et al. was less than 30 minutes, Obama had to know the Ambassador was unaccounted for. If that did not necessitate a trip to the situation room, what would? Oh yeah, Hurricane Sandy a couple months later when a 'good' photo op was needed.

Of course he wasn’t there. That’s why he had to be made to look authoritarian and competent when Sandy came along. Complete with Situation Room photo and him in a suit.

He could have stood for the truth then, but he didn’t""""....

I can't answer that, perhaps he was concerned about the side affair, perhaps already being told Obama and gang would expose him.

In a position like that, people will do most anything to save their families from shame. Never know what a trapped animal will do.

That picture in that article speaks volumes to me. Look at the way Obama is standing so close and look at his face and eyes. That is the face of pure EVIL and Petaerus feels it, threatened by the WON breathing down his throat.

I don't know, but I do feel he will come forward.

All we can do is speculate at this point.

Well; he made me 'lose it'; and for same reasons you mention.

Painful to watch first; because, in truth; Obama is not fit to tie even a boot of those who serve in our Armed Services; and so; Obama's reading/accounting of Marine Cpl. Dakota's heroics; could not help but sound 'rote' and empty; as there is simply no way; for Obama to 'emote simpatico' with a courageous Patriot.

We know; and Obama reminds us; often; that he cannot have ever known an American patriotism; or entertained a genuinely, altruistic thought; much less, even 'mused' an appreciation for our Military. And so he is left to 'wing it'/fake it; as he does with every aspect of his life.

Obama's 'fraud' is inescapable. Though; one does have to 'look'; to see. . .

Think there can be no question; that Obama's Presidency has always been a 'group think' - with or without Obama. These people KNOW; they KNEW the risk inherent; and they remained as 'patsies' for Obama; and too often; for his brain.

After all; there was - and still is, of course - the 'transformation' of America to take care of. To that; all 'on board' with Obama; 'committed'. . .

Obama makes a phone call to the one person in this world he hates more than anyone, and he talks for an hour????????????

Incredible no? And yet. . .not unlike 'abstaining' from a vote; but with an excuse.

This is just so bizarre. A president with no authority serving a conglomerate of One World order unelected officials surrounding him, who gives him his daily marching orders, then sends him off to play.

That scar on his head must mean something, it seems like we are watching some End Times movie with no end, yet this is reality of that movie with no reprisals.

There was a report here that indicated the Hospital was surrounded by Ansar al-Sharia militia:

In Benghazi timeline, CIA errors but no evidence of conspiracy

Were they hoping to recover the Ambassador as a hostage if he recovered from the smoke inhalation?

That is my belief. What else were they after in the consulate. A Muslim Brotherhood heavily armed mob gathers around a consulate where the Ambassador is located, why else would they storm the consulate??????? He was the prize and he was near death when found and unabled to be revived. Amazing how the hostilities were over after that with the only shots being fired by the US were those of the ex-seals.

Americans died......

That’s not accurate, there was an assault by the hostiles on the CIA compound which was about 1 mile away from the consulate later that morning. That is where both Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed. If it was a kidnap attempt and Stevens was at the hospital, then why attack the CIA compound. Other than just killing infidels.

Again, hypothesis. The kidnap was to be easy, no security around the Ambassador. How many MB have you heard were killed at the consulate? I think the MB was a little PO’d, i.e. expecting no resistance. Who were they going to take revenge on after the FUBAR at the consulate........

So the kidnap fails and the gun running from the CIA enclave goes up in smoke. Unintentional consequences.....

If Obama believes that Petreaus will nail him, then he will not live to testify.
