WH Won't Release Photos of Obama Team During Benghazi Attacks
breitbart.com ^ | 11/21/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/21/2012 2:23:09 PM PST by ColdOne

Today, the White House officially refused to release photos of US officials during the September 11 terrorist attacks on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that ended with the deaths of four Americans. CBS News requested the photos on October 31; the White House has routinely released photos showing members of the Obama administration in their hero poses during national security crises. That happened most famously with pictures of the Obama administration key players clustered into the White House situation room during the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.

The WH is going to stonewall and play keep away until everyone just throws up their hands and gives up. Hey, maybe all of the Kardashians will get pregnant and the MSM will have a story to keep them busy for 9 plus months.

Yet somehow, this idiot was re-elected thru voter fraud, voter ignorance, voters wanting free stuff at the expense of others, and while the biggest scandal in memory continues, the media continues to remain silent and continues to lie by omission.

Why hasn’t the AP filed FOIA paperwork?
The media dug deep on Sarah Palin and even Joe the Plumber, yet they can’t or won’t find out any info regarding Benghazi and Obama?

Bee Ess. If it were a “R” in the WH, the media would be on top of this story 24/7, running polls asking if the WH should release all info regarding Benghazi, etc...

They would be driving the “R” POTUS’ job approval ratings down the drain before the past election so the Dem would be elected.

0bama was asleep.

The cries for help were denied before he put on his footie pajamas, and crawled into bed with a warm cup of milk and a notice on the door:

“Do Not Disturb”

Who gave the order to the military to “stand down” and NOT execute the plan to rescue our Ambassador and our other three brave men?

When did they give the order?

Why?

The facts are what is rotten. Obama met with Panetta at 5:00 pm on 9/11 in DC. The attack in Benghazi started at 3:40 pm DC time. By 6:00 pm DC time, Panetta was BACK AT THE PENTAGON after meeting with Obama. This means Obama spent less than an hour with Panetta ‘managing’ the crisis.

At 6:07 DC time, the CIA had cleared the consulate and returned to the annex with the body of Sean Smith. They reported at that time that Ambassador Stevens was MISSING.

The bottom line is Obama was notified by 5 pm that an attack was happening, but rather than going to the situation room at the White House with Panetta, he sent Panetta back to the Pentagon. Obama was NEVER engaged in the crisis on 9/11, he spent less than 30 minutes before heading up to the residence to watch Sportscenter on ESPN.

Because they were NOT wher they should have been.

Additionally, they will use FAKE humility and say that the “serious nature of the incident should never be boasted about or appear to make it look as if we were spiking the football.” when in fact they were not even on the field with the ball in hand.

Only the POTUS had the authority to act!

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

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!

CBS News/ November 21, 2012, 11:49 AM

White House declines to release images from night of Benghazi attacks

The White House Photo Office has declined CBS News requests to release images taken of US officials during the Sept. 11 Benghazi attacks.

CBS News first requested the images on Oct. 31. In the past, the White House has released photos showing US officials during national security incidents. A half dozen images related to the mission that captured and killed Osama bin Laden were given to the public last year. One depicts President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and members of the national security team gathered in the Situation Room on May 1, 2011.

A White House official referred our request regarding the Benghazi attacks to the White House Photo Office. On Nov. 1, an official there indicated she would process our request quickly, but then did not respond further. Finally, this week, the White House Photo Office told CBS News it would not release any images without approval of Josh Earnest in the White House Press Office. Earnest did not respond to our telephone calls and emails.

At a press conference on Nov. 14, 2012 President Obama stated that his Administration has provided all information regarding “what happened in Benghazi.”

“We have provided every bit of information that we have, and we will continue to provide information...,” the President told reporters, adding, “we will provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day...” and “I will put forward every bit of information that we have.”

In addition to the Benghazi images, CBS News has also requested, but not received, details concerning the president’s and his staff’s decisions during the attacks. Last year reporters were given details of the decision making, timeline and players regarding the Osama bin Laden raid as well as access to certain emails.

CBS News is also seeking drone and ground-level surveillance images and email communications and documents from the night of the Benghazi attacks. So far, none has been provided.

Where is the GOP House with this? Oh it is too secret for the American citizens to know? Didn't Nixon play that game? We know what happened to tricky Dick....why does it always always only go in one direction (party-wise).

When the GOP finds a spine, I will reconsider joining back up - not until.

Obama was not there.

Evidence: What does Benghazi-Coward Obama say that he did when he was informed of the Benghazi Attack: “When I heard about those folks being attacked, the first thing that I did was to call and them to make sure that everybody is safe.”
