Skip to comments.Rep. Rooney on video of Benghazi attack: ‘It was very difficult to watch’
Posted on 12/06/2012 5:39:11 AM PST by SmileRight
After a classified briefing on the attack on the Benghazi consulate, Rep. Tom Rooney, R-FL, said he learned a lot from National Intelligence Director James Clapper.
I learned we do not have the adequate protection at our compound in Libya, in Benghazi, and if thats the case in other dangerous areas of the world, then we have a lot of work to do at the State Department to make sure our people are safe, said Rooney, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.
Rooney said they watched the attack unfold...

Why is it these “classified” briefings always seem to quiet critics?
But Mister Rooney, Obama watched that for awhile, DENIED requests for support and then went to bed.
Adequate protection of our “compound” in Benghazi would have drawn attention to it.
I ask my Lib acquaintances:
Why couldn’t the military do a rescue mission in Benghazi on 9-11-12?
Have not received a factual answer yet. As we get further away from it, the stonewalling seems to be effective.
Representative Peter King brought it up on John Gambling this morning. Perhaps there is hope.
Richard Nixon faced impeachment and resigned over less.
The press found they have ‘power’ to fire a president, they found during the Clinton years that they had the ‘power’ to protect and shield a president.
... and possibly exposed and compromised the "Fast and Furious"-like terrorist-feeding weapons operation
To date, the media havent asked President Obama and his top officials, why? Why the administration-wide cover-up? Why didnt military help get to Battleground Benghazi?
IMHO, Benghazi-Coward Obama chose Susan Rice to be the perfect deflecting smokescreen for his Impeachable blunders in the Benghazi Massacre.
Susan Rice is female, Black, and above all Had nothing to do with Benghazi.
Why not ignore Obamas throwing Rice at the gullible RINOs, and call Commie Obama to testify under oath to a Congressional Committee?
Here are my three questions for Benghazi-Coward Obama:
1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?
2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?
3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT about your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?
Impeach! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Libya. Oil. Soros. Obama. Hillary.
Obama admin solution for EVERYTHING: LOTS of weapons.
Makes ya wonder about what he has planned for the economic collapse...
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Give it to some of these Genius Freepers, that question would be answered within 5 minutes.
“has it been scrubbed, are there any detectable missing parts?”
With this administration that is a given.
And Obama watched it go down in near real time, denied support, then went to bed.
THAT is criminal in itself.
>> and possibly exposed and compromised the “Fast and Furious”-like terrorist-feeding weapons operation <<
This man Rooney’s conclusions were the Freepers conclusions simply 1 hour after it was initially reported. Are the Congressmen that thoughtless that they cannot figure out these things which are simply a logical progresson of thought?
With this administration that is a given.
Think anyone of importance will question that? no, cause if they do, someone will BOOT them off some committee.
News that Jim DeMint is leaving the Senate in Jan., give suspect to cause me to think there is something so EVIL going on in Congress that he thinks he MUST detach himself from.
Then draw that DOT over to BOEHNER booting 3 conservatives from the Finance Committee for not cooperating.
To me these things cannot be overlooked, they are coming FAST AND FURIOUS these days.
Boehner and the Rinos are selling us all up the river.
Gotta wonder what’s in it for them?
Before he is asked any questions, they would need to put a MAGNET cap on his head. lol
1 hour after it was reported.......How true, sure could have saved him some time if he had just read these threads.
Congressmen that thoughtless? After they are elected, they lose that ability. It is checked at the door of Boehner and Reid, or be BOOTED from ANY committees until they learn how to behave.
You know I am perplexed by Panetta’s excuse for not even trying to save these peoples’ lives. He said, “There was not enough time.” How could he have known whether they would hold out 8 hours or 8 days. But none of the journalists even asked. Is Panetta psychic? The lies eminating from this administration is endless.
YOU JEST, of course, lol. What's in it for them? A Place at the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT table. Vying for position now. (I jest not in this matter)
Non cooperative Tea Party conservatives......BOOTED out of any committee.
With this going on in OUR FACE attitude and the BOEHNER LIST, we don't stand a chance, and they know they MUST WORK fast before we get enough courage to oppose them with force. JMO
“A Place at the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT table. Vying for position now.”
That’s what I’m afraid of.
How right you are in that. How could he know? Yet, not worth the trying, huh Panetta?
The more they talk, the dumber they get. Each one of them disclosing one more bit of unexplainable information, and connects to another DOT. Round and round we go.
Thing is their EGO's don't allow them to think that some very smart people are listening and detecting the "what not is said" and connecting the DOTS. Maybe we can understand why they want/NEED to silence all communications out here.
Thats what Im afraid of.
Me thinks you knew the answer before you asked. lol
Think on this: The position vying is going on now, and those idiots vying for position will be exterminated when no longer needed. JUSTICE? well yeah. We may not see it, but it will happen.
We get the last laugh after all.
“Me thinks you knew the answer before you asked. lol”
Reid and company are setting up one party commnist rule.
They will not allow “opposition” members to stay, no matter how useful they proved in the past.
Communists always kill or exile their useful idiots.
Boehner thinks he’ll save his own arse by selling us out.
He’s a fool.
For every minute of that tape, and for every desperate plea for help, remember 0bama was either saying “Don’t Help” or was asleep.
Yes, yes they are. They are slick talkers but not logical thinkers. I am sad to say my conservative congressman answered a voter's question thus:
Q: We (conservatives) feel we are no longer represented in the voting process, we look at the map and see all the red yet we are not represented, we have no voice in the election of the President. What can we do?
A: Perhaps it's time to go to a popular vote rather than the EC.
I about fainted! Now this representative is a good man, but obviously doesn't know the source of the EC, why the rural areas need it and what needs to be done to correct the under representation of the less populated (but food producing, oil producing, and other necessary items for life)areas of the USA.
Very sad. And probably the end of the Republic that we have known and loved.
Sorry to get off subject.
ROFL. But, he can't resist the ride up, EGO & greed trump.
Ego and greed trump sense and logic everytime.
You see it every day in Vegas and Atlantic City.
Panetta is nothing but a lying machine. He is one of the faces of the Oligarchy.
None of our foreign embassies is safe since the FBI has overwhelmed the CIA, and now does the bidding of Obama and his death cult.
I despise Panetta. He has sold his soul to Satan.
