Posted on 11/10/2012 6:00:52 PM PST by 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.
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.
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" 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 abandoned his post. 0bama Is A Deserter!
And that he nails Odumbass to the wall....
That’s my take on it.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Obama = The Butcher of Benghazi
He can’t without nailing himself. Huge.
He fessed up to infidelity and resigned in disgrace. I would call that “nailing yourself”.
Time to bring down Obamugabe.
HOUSE IMPEACHES, SENATE TRIES.
No, the House votes to impeach. The senate would try him for removal, with scotus chief justice presiding. It’s what happened to Clinton.
Better to resign as a wolf in sheep’s clothing than to be exposed as the wolf.
Surely there are decent dems that may be up for reelection whose constituents will demand that they vote BO out for the murder of these 4 men. This is much more serious than the Monica Lewensky scandal. I think it may be risky for the dems to protect BO if really horrible things come out about him. But really horrible things were already out about him and he won again so who knows.
Well then, who decided that these forces who were put on alert would not be sent to Libya???
Are you implying the CIA chief has more power than Obamugabe?
I believe that when the full scope of Obama’s treason(arming ALQEDA) and dereliction of duty(leaving our citizens to die) and abuse of power( major corruption and crimes) becomes known....the dems will be forced to turn on Obama for their own political power and survival.
Impeachment is a real possibility. The key will be the media and the rest of the idiots in the country. Will they even care?
LOL! Someone mentioned earlier that Romney sits down to pee...if impeachment came about; you woulod find that most of the 'men' in the House sit down to pee, as well.
Wonder if Ryan has the balls to...ah, never mind.
What I am saying is obama did not have to force petraeus to resign. petraeus resigned to protect HIMSELF, this op, and previous ops in which he was involved.
