Panetta: Obama Absent Night of Benghazi Daniel Halper February 7, 2013 12:05 PM
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012:
Panetta said that Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, "up to us."
In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Panetta said that, save their 5 o'clock prescheduled meeting with the president the day of September 11, Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that day. There were no calls about what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

Ping. TM, too.
Insanity, incompetence, or worse—indifference. Where are the adults?
Hillary’s ‘08 campaign ad “it’s 3 am and the White House phone is ringing” comes true. President AWOL
Out “CHOOMIN” with the boys again?
You silly people. You seem to expect something different? We’ve seen this for four years. And the Obama media will cover this faster than a cat covers a turd.
Now lets get back to what’s important. Let’s form a 3rd party that way we can be sure that we’ll get more of this! (Thank goodness Romney didn’t get in, he’d be just as bad, right?)
More likely drunk but you're on the right track.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot????????\\
My thought to, however, seems I remembe reports of Obama beein present and watching the live stream video from Bengazi on 911, anybody knows better? the secdef has told a few whoppers before so I don’t think another one bother him, he lied for Clinton and he lies for Obama and he probably can’t tell the differance anyway, after all he is a lawyer
Why so confused, America? That’s how it done in Chicago!
If the boss isn’t told about it or never hears of it, there is no culpability or accountability.
“Under the bus for thee but not for me!”
My precise question.
So, when did he find out about Benghazi and why has it taken this long for anyone to say BO wasn't there?
Only the President has the authority to authorize the crossing of International borders with a military force. But by being “absent” He did not have to give the order or not give the order. A seemingly perfect crime if this was a setup.
Proof of premeditated murder if proven.
A president cannot be “absent”. His location is known 24/7. In case of a real absence, a Vice President would be called. But if he gave the order that he was unavailable, then he could be called absent, and his decision was made NOT to give the order.
No two ways about it, Obama is legaly quite present in the decision to allow the embassy to burn. In the least felonious malfeasance, in the greatest, Treason in High Office.
“He is taking nicorette to he’p stop his legal smoking habit, and he is using heroin to he’p stop his coke addiction.
He was somewhere between “puff the magic dragon” and the “yellow submarine”. “
Then who gave the order to stand down???
Does Panettta have that authority?
Like Pontius Pilate he washed his hands and walked aay.
What a great leader we have in the White House.
The only man who could order us to cross the border and he walked out and left it to his subordinates.
Obama delegated it to some staffer. Panetta and Dempsey said that they had no further personal contact with Obama and none with Hillary. Everything appeared to be handled by staffers in the WH, NSC, and DOD.
Nowhere does it say he wasn’t available. It simply says he wasn’t involved in the details. I’m sure they knew where he was. This is Panata covering for him.
AND WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
Man, I’ll be Clinton wishes he’d have thought of that. “Mr. President, did you have sexual relations with Monica Lewinksy?”
“A miliion sperm are dead and we need to find out how that happened. So, WTF difference does it make?”
Must have had a Politburo meeting.
You don't think he's doing all this on his own, do you?
