Posted on 02/14/2013 1:19:27 PM PST by gwgn02
President Obama didnt make any phone calls the night of the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the White House said in a letter to Congress released Thursday.
During the entire attack, the president of the United States never picked up the phone to put the weight of his office in the mix, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, who had held up Mr. Obamas defense secretary nominee to force the information to be released.
Mr. Graham said that if Mr. Obama had picked up the phone, at least two of the Americans killed in the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi might still be alive because he might have been able to push U.S. aid to get to the scene faster.
The White House has said Mr. Obama was kept up to date on the attack by his staff, though after being alerted to the attack in a pre-scheduled afternoon meeting he never spoke again with the defense secretary or the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Once again the so-called commander-in-chief was awol.
“...at this late date...”
...which was the whole idea — run out the clock! Then, when the clock has bled out, ridicule them for asking, “at this late date!”
What do you suppose the press release regarding that conversation would have been if ALL the Americans in Benghazi had died because ‘Israel’ backed an anti-muslim film that led to their deaths?
Of course he didn’t, the rat b@stard!
He really didn’t care about the Americans being killed. He really cared about doing or saying anything that would annoy his co-religionists.
You nailed it in my view. I’d bet he’s hopping mad this info was released from the WH, it shows his inaction.
IMPEACH THE WORTHLESS BASTARD......
Wait, shouldn’t Blowfly Obama himself be compelled to testify about his actions/ inactions on that night? He’s just a public servant after all.
He needs to pay the highest price.
He needs to be impeached!
Its time for Arpiao's final report to be released. Actually WAAAAY past time.
Mr. Netanyahu, speaking at a news conference in Jerusalem, said, Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran dont have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.
In another sign of tensions, the Israeli Embassy in Washington said late Tuesday that the Obama administration had declined a request from Mr. Netanyahus office for a meeting with Mr. Obama when the Israeli leader attends the United Nations General Assembly this month. The Obama administration said the decision was due to a scheduling problem and had been conveyed to Israel long ago.
On Tuesday night, Mr. Obama called Mr. Netanyahu to try to calm the situation. The two talked for a full hour, hashing through the Iran confrontation and their misunderstandings.
Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat.
Oh bravest of the brave, Obama.
He needs to be more than that, but if I write what I am thinking, you'll be sending me a response at Levenworth or worse.
Mr. Netanyahu, who is highly attuned to American politics, seemed to be using his comments to pressure Mr. Obama to specify at which point the United States would be prepared to take military action against Iran, perhaps at the United Nations General Assembly opening this month.
The Israeli ambassador to the United States, Michael B. Oren, echoed Mr. Netanyahu in an interview in Washington on Monday night and said the Israeli leadership wanted Mr. Obama and the leaders of other nations to agree on clear limits for Iran.
We know that the Iranians see red, Mr. Oren said. We know they can discern the color red. We know that the redder the line, the lesser the chance that they will pass it.
Mrs. Clinton publicly rejected that approach over the weekend. In an interview with Bloomberg Radio, she avoided discussion of Irans stockpile and said, Were not setting deadlines for military action. It was that statement that appeared to have set off Mr. Netanyahu.
Then Tar and Feather is skinny little ass.
When I saw the headline I though “But he talked to Netanyahu!”
As the Commander in Chief, isn’t he held liable for dereliction of duty?
> So when will he be impeached?
He won’t be impeached. One of the reasons is that he has black skin and too many whites suffer from guilt. They also voted for him for this reason. (Just an opinion.)
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!
