>>> Obama cites Benghazi phone call with national security team but no meeting
That was what I remembered.
He knew a situation developing in Benghazi, left someone(s) else in charge, continued Las Vegas fundrasing as scheduled, then as events got out of hand, sent Rice and his lapdogs to spread smear about a youtube video.
And all this time, none of those left in charge ever thought of keeping Obama up-to-the-minute informed. ???!!!!???!!
As CinC, he can make such decision, some may disagree, but ‘Obama Not Present’ tells us what, exactly?
But, I'm just a nobody.
“Why didn’t you put forces in place to be ready to respond?,” Senator John McCain asked the general.
Dempsey started, “Because we never received a request to do so, number one. And number two, we —”
McCain iterrupted, “You never heard of Ambassador Stevens’s repeated warnings?”
“I had, through General Ham,” responded Dempsey, referring to the commander of AFRICOM. “But we never received a request for support from the State Department, which would have allowed us to put forces—”
“So it’s the State Department’s fault?”
“I’m not blaming the State Department,” Dempsey responded.
Read that the Ambassador WAS involved in a gun-running scam that went awry. He knew too much. Possibly he could have blown the lid off of this. That’s why he feared for his safetyand requested more security, which was denied. I think they wanted the Ambassador taken out to keep him quiet.
