Posted on 02/07/2013 7:51:15 PM PST by SMGFan
Nothing. That is what President Barack Obama did on the night of September 11, 2012, as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and killed four Americans, among them Ambassador Christopher Stevens. President Obamas inaction was revealed in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday by outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey.
Under direct questioning by Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Panetta admitted that he had no communication with President Obama after their pre-scheduled meeting at 5:00 p.m. EDT. The attack on the consulate had already been under way for 90 minutes at that time. Neither the president nor anyone else from the White House called afterwards to check what was happening; the Commander-in-Chief had left it up to us, said Panetta.
Panettas testimony directly contradicts President Obamas own claim to have issued three direectives as soon as he learned what was going on in Benghazi. As he told a Denver reporter in October: I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.
That same claim was subsequently repeated by other Democrats, including Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who came to the presidents defense. But if those directives were indeed given--and proof has never been produced--they were given long after the attack, not while the attack was going on, during which time the president did nothing.

Where Was Obama on Night of Benghazi Attacks?
He could have been personally responsible for their deaths, lied about it, got caught at lying abotu it, and NOTHING woudl be doen about it
Would some please tell her “Shut Up?”
He was too busy packing for his
campaign trip to Las Vegas
keep in mind.. it started at 3:30 in the afternoon, washdc time, and lasted until 11:30pm
there is no excuse for him being out of touch
there is no possibility the ppl in washdc didn’t know what was happening
they just didn’t care... and let ppl die
(of course, I personally believe the true goal of that night was for the ambassador to be kidnapped and exchanged for the blind sheik)
.... Knowing the narrative of those involved in the usual "Cover-up" machine ..... he will simply say that he "Misspoke." ..... Then .... Problem solved for the Boy King..... then ... onto his business as usual.
... Sadly, as we all know ... investigative journalism is dead. Nobody outside "The Kook Right Wing Fringe" as the King calls it, will bother looking into this.
He didn’t do nothing; he was resting up for his fundraising trip to Las Vegas the next morning.
You beat me to it. But, it perfectly sums up, not only Cankles Clinton's attitude, but also the attitude of Obama, the Obama Administration, Congressional Democrats, low-information and socialist Rat voters, and the mainstream lib lapdog media.
The negligence, apathy and silence makes me want to projectile vomit all over every one of them.
Yes. Where WAS Obama during the many hours of the Benghazi Attacks? - The MSM has been rabid overall in every way determined that the “affirmative action” President will NEVER be asked a hard question. - There ARE some 100% black men who would have made honestly GOOD Presidents; too bad the low information voters live and die by the slipshod MSM and every word that comes out of its mouth. -
Oh, my guess is that Obama was getting his beauty sleep in preparation for that rapper’s party in Vegas which he attended the next day; you know, the FUNDRAISER.
Since the Armed Services Committee now have conflicting testimony under oath from several involved parties on the matter under investigation, and since it’s their job to resolve those conflicts, logically they have no choice but to subpoena bambi and question him under oath to ascertain the truth.
On CNN website it is mentioned. It is reported under “politics”. Benghazi is not about politics and it’s not about “fair and balanced”. It’s about wrong-doing, negligence and accountability for it. People died. The public is long over due for some accountability on the part of govt officials.
The commie lib ‘RATS love to sound macho by always saying, “I’ve gotcha back”. Well, Barry Benghazi sure didn’t have the backs of those four dead Americans. The bass turd.
He was passed out.
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!
0bama did nothing!!!
He lies about big things, like Benghazi, 0bamacare, and government debt.
He lies about medium things, like closing 'Gitmo'.
He lies about little things, like shooting skeet.
Barack Hussein Obama is a pathological liar.
It's that simple.
