Nobody wake Barack
NYPost.com ^ | February 10, 2013 | Michael Goodwin

Posted on 02/10/2013 8:10:00 AM PST by RoosterRedux

Finally, we have the answer, thanks to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. In his reluctant Senate testimony, he provided the missing piece of the puzzle: The commander in chief was MIA. The coverup was created to protect his absence.

According to Panetta, President Obama checked in with his military team early on during the attack, then checked out for the rest of the night. The next day, we already knew, he blamed the video maker and flew to Las Vegas for a campaign event.

Meanwhile, half a world away, Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans had been slaughtered by Islamists. Their murders on the 11th anniversary of 9/11 gave the incident extra gravity and led the White House to conceal the facts. An honest chronology would have revealed the president’s shocking behavior during the most successful attack against Americans by foreigners since 9/11.

Imagine the questions that would have come: What did Obama do through the long, bloody night? Whom did he talk to? When did he learn that Stevens was dead?

There is still much we don’t know, but Panetta, under persistent Senate probing, revealed that Obama simply wasn’t involved. Did he just go to sleep?

That question, like other good ones, was asked by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Panetta and the chairman of the joint chiefs, Martin Dempsey, told Graham they didn’t sleep, but said they didn’t know if Obama did.

You would think a presidential conscience would keep him awake and engaged until he knew what had happened in Benghazi. You would be wrong.

I think this is a lie.

I believe what Glenn Beck said.

He said that there’s another big shoe about to drop and the President wants to distance himself from any involvement in Benghazi.

Something really stinks here. The entire bunch of communists are hiding a real sicking thing concerning Benghazi that is currently unexpected. Glen Beck was always right.

Yeah and I think it’s more than just running guns to Syria. I think that’s pretty much already been established they were doing that.

I think there’s more. Possibly dealing with Al-Queda directly on weapons or the whole set up hostage situation.

Something is always “brewing”. Trouble is it’s been over four years and we still don’t have a finished pot yet. Probably never will. Too many people have a vested interest in the current regime and it’s policies.

Yup. You get sick of hearing this, but it's true.

But the information is out there for anyone who's willing to look into it. I'm afraid we're stuck not only with a biased MSM, but with a population that largely wants to believe the MSM's "feel good" spin.

I think you’re right. I don’t like things that “are about to come out”. If people know things, they need to bring them out right then, otherwise people have this disturbing tendency to drop dead before they drop the shoe.

Probably that Brennan, the Muslim Brotherhood convert picked by zero to head the CIA, is running off the books ops - zero gave him carte blanche to do this.

So obviously our tax dollars and our children’s tax dollars are being spent, purposely without our knowledge, to further the interests of the Muslim Brotherhood. We are under attack by the government of the United States of America.

Where are the real patriots in D.C.??? Other than Michelle Bachmann and a few others...is there not one patriot in the zero administration who will not cover for him???

I think it’s a total lie. He was there! He just does not want to be involved because another shoe is about to drop.

Remember someone in the state department saying they watched this all happen live on a video feed?

You can’t tell me that on September 11th, shortly before an election.. the POTUS wasn’t watching this.

Something big is being covered up.

I’m not saying it will or will not drop.. but I do think something IS there big on Benghazi that we don’t know about.

Whether or not it’ll come out... well that depends on who finds it.

For a party that wet itself daily from yelling about the Contras, the Democrats sure seem to be at ease with supporting both sides in every shooting conflict in North Africa and the Middle East. Almost makes you think there must be some money involved.

If DumBO had come out and said that he had left it to good people to take care of it. And, if they had not, he would fix it. But, he didn’t fix it, he doubled down on incompetence. The fact that nobody in the White House or State Department had real concerns begs the question: “Where was Jarret?”

This regime’s primary purpose is to deflect blame from the Narcissus-in Chief so that he will not appear as who he really is. ZerO has two jobs, read what is on the teleprompter and sign what is in front of him. Everything else is done by the marionette miester.

Obama was busy!
He spend a whole hour or so on the phone with the PM of Israel (according to his claim during the presidential debate).

==

Oh, the attacks went on for another 6-1/2 hour. Uhhhhh, well, he was packing for that long, arduous trip to Las Vegas the next morning. Packing is hard work. You gotta make sure the socks match. And stuff.

==

[/s]

==

These hearings are revealing that neither Obama or Clinton were ‘involved’ during the 7-1/2 hours of the attacks, and neither of them apparently called for any ‘involvement’ by any US military support — some stationed just two hours away.

No wonder Clinton blamed the Internet and they trotted out Rice to spew that ridiculous story that the trailer for some obscure movie caused this.

They knew if they trotted out the video excuse.. it would get uncovered.. and people like McCain and Lindsay Graham would spend all of their time and resources investigating it.

Meanwhile.. the real scandal is being ignored. They were STILL talking about that stupid video during Hillary’s hearing - that was what prompted her to say “What difference does it make?”

This was right around the time the polls, internal from what I gather, were beginning to show Phaeroh that he was not winning the election. The last thing he needed was to have his fingerprints on another disaster so he left the dirty work up to his subordinates with the edict: do what you can knowing they could not do much without his sign off. Recall at the funeral for Stevens, only person there who looked seriously grieved was Hitlery. Phaeroh looked like he wanted to be anywhere but there. Besides in the battle cry now: what does it matter now. I’d love to know exactly what was going on but with this bunch aided and abetted by a reluctant Congress and a bunch of RINOs, we never will.

As far as another shoe is going to fall, I am beyond waiting for that to happen. A shoe off Yeti is not going to unseat this bum. If the asteroid misses DC next Friday, he will be home free to keep his reign of terror on the US in tact and in fact he will amp it up on tuesday.

Just remember - God tests. Satan tempts.

God gives us tests to strengthen us and draw us closer to Him. Satan tempts us to destroy us, by mesmerizing us into believing we can solve our own problems, ultimately drawing us away from God.

Given the fact we are living in a nation where God once was front & center, and over the last 2-3 decades we’ve allowed the Bible to be taken to the street and tossed in the trash...

Maybe we ought to be asking the better question...which side are we on?

The only way "the other shoe is going to drop" in a way that will force the mainstream media to give this story extensive coverage will be if somebody high up - Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs, somebody the media can't ignore - decides to throw Barack under the bus and tell the American people the real story. Not very likely, however.

To: TomGuy; All

From the 2nd Presidential debate:
Wonder what time he supposedly did the following. And who initiates an investigation while the attack was just heating up??? Many other questions, too...

So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team, and I gave them three instructions. Number one, beef up our security and — and — and procedures not just in Libya but every embassy and consulate in the region. Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure that folks are held accountable and it doesn’t happen again. And number three, we are going to find out who did this, and we are going to hunt them down, because one of the things that I’ve said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them.

Now, Governor Romney had a very different response. While we were still dealing with our diplomats being threatened, Governor Romney put out a press release trying to make political points. And that’s not how a commander in chief operates. You don’t turn national security into a political issue, certainly not right when it’s happening.

And people — not everybody agrees with some of the decisions I’ve made. But when it comes to our national security, I mean what I say. I said I’d end the war in Libya — in Iraq, and I did. I said that we’d go after al-Qaida and bin Laden. We have. I said we’d transition out of Afghanistan and start making sure that Afghans are responsible for their own security. That’s what I’m doing.

And when it comes to this issue, when I say that we are going to find out exactly what happened, everybody will be held accountable, and I am ultimately responsible for what’s taking place there, because these are my folks, and I’m the one who has to greet those coffins when they come home, you know that I mean what I say.

MS. CROWLEY: Mr. President, I got to move us along. Governor?

MR. ROMNEY: Thank you, Kerry, for your question. It’s an important one. And — and I — I think the president just said correctly that — that the buck does stop at his desk, and — and he takes responsibility for — for that — for that — the failure in providing those security resources, and those terrible things may well happen from time to time.

I — I’m — I feel very deeply sympathetic for the families of those who lost loved ones. Today there’s a memorial service for one of those that was lost in this tragedy. We — we think of their families and care for them deeply.

There were other issues associated with this — with this tragedy.

There were many days that passed before we knew whether this was a spontaneous demonstration or actually whether it was a terrorist attack. And there was no demonstration involved. It was a terrorist attack, and it took a long time for that to be told to the American people. Whether there was some misleading or instead whether we just didn’t know what happened, I think you have to ask yourself why didn’t we know five days later when the ambassador to the United Nations went on TV to say that this was a demonstration. How could of we not known?

But I find more troubling than this that on — on the day following the assassination of the United States ambassador — the first time that’s happened since 1979 — when we have four Americans killed there, when apparently we didn’t know what happened, that the president the day after that happened flies to Las Vegas for a political fundraiser, then the next day to Colorado for another event, another political event, I think these — these actions taken by a president and a leader have symbolic significance, and perhaps even material significance, in that you’d hoped that during that time we could call in the people who were actually eyewitnesses. We’ve read their accounts now about what happened. It was very clear this was not a demonstration. This was an attack by terrorists.

And this calls into question the president’s whole policy in the Middle East. Look what’s happening in Syria, in Egypt, now in Libya. Consider the distance between ourselves and Israel, where the president said that — that he was going to put daylight between us and Israel. We have Iran four years closer to a nuclear bomb. Syria — Syria’s not just the tragedy of 30,000 civilians being killed by a military, but also a strategic — strategically significant player for America. The president’s policies throughout the Middle East began with an apology tour and pursue a strategy of leading from behind, and this strategy is unraveling before our very eyes.

MS. CROWLEY: Because we’re closing in, I want to still get a lot of people in. I want to ask you something, Mr. President, and then have the governor just quickly. Your secretary of state, as I’m sure you know, has said that she takes full responsibility for the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

Does the buck stop with your secretary of state as far as what went on here?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Secretary Clinton has done an extraordinary job. But she works for me. I’m the president. And I’m always responsible. And that’s why nobody is more interested in finding out exactly what happened than I did (sic).

The day after the attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror. And I also said that we’re going to hunt down those who committed this crime. And then a few days later, I was there greeting the caskets coming into Andrews Air Force Base and grieving with the families.

And the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our U.N. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, Governor, is offensive. That’s not what we do. That’s not what I do as president. That’s not what I do as commander in chief.

MS. CROWLEY: Governor, if you want to reply just quickly to this, please.

MR. ROMNEY: Yeah, I — I certainly do. I certainly do. I — I think it’s interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack, he went in the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror. You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed.

MR. ROMNEY: Is that what you’re saying?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed, Governor.

MR. ROMNEY: I — I — I want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Get the transcript.

MS. CROWLEY: It — he did in fact, sir.

So let me — let me call it an act of terrorism — (inaudible) —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy? (Laughter, applause.)

MS. CROWLEY: He did call it an act of terror. It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea of there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.

MR. ROMNEY: This — the administration — the administration — (applause) — indicated that this was a — a reaction to a — to a video and was a spontaneous reaction.

MS. CROWLEY: They did.

MR. ROMNEY: It took them a long time to say this was a terrorist act by a terrorist group and — and to suggest — am I incorrect in that regard? On Sunday the — your — your secretary or —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Candy —

MR. ROMNEY: Excuse me. The ambassador to the United Nations went on the Sunday television shows and — and spoke about how this was a spontaneous reaction.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Candy, I’m — I’m happy to —
