Posted on 01/23/2013 3:24:46 PM PST by Texas Fossil
At Hillary Clinton's Benghazi hearing at the House this afternoon, Democratic congressman Eliot Engel said:
"Barack Obama was not responsible for the Benghazi attack any more than George W. Bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks"

God help the US.
Um, benghoweveryouspellit took place over a 7 hour period. We had planes within less than a half hour distance from the place. And even ground support wasn’t all that far away. I also don’t remember any stand down order for 9/11.
Yeah, they were the same.
Then again, looks can be deceiving. I suppose they do look the same to the ignorant.
Bush didn’t launch a war in a non aggressive country to overthrow a leader who wasn’t being outright aggressive toward us only to replace him with radicals.
Kadaffi was a bastard but he was a scared bastard.
Bush didn’t arrange the 9/11 attack.
But...but...I thought the left said 9/11 was an inside job. I’m confused...
So, why is 0bama supplying the Muzzie Bros in Egypt with Assault F-16s and Assault Tanks?
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!
He’s right. obama is not more responsible for the attack. THE ATTACK.
But, the candy-ass had over 7 hours to respond, had every asset the US military has within 60 minutes to help out and then had the audacity to lie about how it all started.
None of this would be happening and he would be a f**king hero had he sent in troops and saved those people. Instead he tried covering up, whatever it was that was going on there.
Wonder if any of the survivors will ever answer a question. And the display that she put on this afternoon is despicable. Evidence that she’s never been held accountable or questioned on anything. She must have been one helluva lawyer.
I owned one of those $4,189 “Remarkable achievements”.
Those small side windows leaked like a sieve and the doors were so heavy they began sagging almost immediately. What a turd!
Don't agree at all. He is totally responsible for Benghazi. He gave the directions for the gun running operation out of Benghazi to aid the Muslim Brotherhood and some offshoots of Al Qaeda both in Lybia and in Syria. The decision came directly from 1600 Penn Ave. Hence the smoke screen about the movie causing the attack. Obozo OWNS this one....
Not only that, he took out their president, bombed their country and denied the consulate protection.
Since those same people were saying it was an inside job does that mean Obama was at fault?
Pray for America
You are correct that he owns this. Absolutely.
I guess my point was, whatever BS he had going on, by working w/ our enemies and arming the bad guys-which I agree with you on. My point was more that he could have squashed this bug within about 45 minutes of the first shot being fired or the first molotav cocktail being thrown. And for that inaction, for whatever reason, is where he has proven, yet again, that he is a complete incompetent and moron.
What sickens me more though, is that there doesn’t seem to be ONE person that is willing to stand up and say, “Enough”. Enough of all the lies that he, Rice and Clinton are telling about this. “This” is what happened.
His political machine or whoever is pulling his puppet strings must be some really really powerful folks.
didn’t Charlene Lamb(sp) or one of the other, first to appear before Congress say that the money for security wasn’t a problem.
And now she’s running her c**kholster that it was. These folks are so corrupt and stupid that it boggles the mind.
Hillary’s run for President she campaign on the 2AM phone call and she was much more prepared to make the right decision. When she had the 2AM call she could not tell whether it was an attack or not? Her preparation led to helplessness in a crisis.
It was not a consulate. It was a “mission” (ie spook city)
Not one word about the 30 survivors that Woods and the other X-Marine saved. No one has talked to them? Do you think spooks forget betrayal? I don’t think so.
Oh wait.. Benghazi was a terrorist attack that left four Americans in distress and what did our Commander-In-Chief do besides worry about how it would affect his re-election? NOTHING!
