Skip to comments.The 10 P.M. Phone Call
Posted on 05/18/2013 5:30:51 AM PDT by gusopol3
Even in the conservative press, it has become received wisdom that President Obama was AWOL on the night of September 11, after first being informed by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, in the late afternoon, that the State Department facility in Benghazi was under attack. You hear it again and again: While Americans were under attack, the commander-in-chief checked out, leaving subordinates to deal with the crisis while he got his beauty sleep in preparation for a fundraising campaign trip to Vegas.
That is not true . . . and the truth, as weve come to expect with Obama, is almost surely worse. There is good reason to believe that while Americans were still fighting for their lives in Benghazi, while no military efforts were being made to rescue them, and while those desperately trying to rescue them were being told to stand down, the president was busy shaping the blame the video narrative to which his administration clung in the aftermath.
We have heard almost nothing about what Obama was doing that night. Back in February, though, CNS News did manage to pry one grudging disclosure out of White House mendacity mogul Jay Carney: At about 10 p.m., the president called Secretary Clinton to get an update on the situation.

So if I were investigating Benghazi, Id be homing in on that 10 p.m. phone call. Thats the one between President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the one thats gotten close to zero attention.--
Even more in the IRS scandal --"Cui bono?"
They couldn’t pry Barry off Reggie.
Lazy, disengaged and incompetent, that’s our Annointed One. And Americans died because of it.
We won’t begin to make progress until the survivors are on television telling their stories. IMO that’s why Carney is so desperate to characterize this as a “manufactured scandal that fell apart.” If they can keep the survivors out of the news, they win . ( Obama has actually recovered lost ground this week in Gallup tracking poll.)
Read this article start to finish or resign from FR. The meat is at the end. The timeline of the 10 PM phone call and the Hillary Press Release speaks volumes about the origin of the phony video story.
The other side doesn't care what their leftist heroes do wrong. They only care that they win. Ignore the polls and keep pushing for the truth. If the truth doesn't matter, then we have no nation left and it doesn't matter what the polls say anyway.
I’m more likely to believe their actions - or inactions - were politically motivated. O had spent months building the narrative that Al Qaeda had been defeated.. Imagine the ramifications if - 7 weeks before a tight election - that story got blown up?
Why, O may have lost the election!
That’s why it wasn’t laziness. Obama,Clnton, Rice etc...their responses were 100% politically motivated.
Is there anyting to the rumor that a fake kidnapping of our ambassador was planned and in exchange, some arab terroist being held by the U.S. would get our man back. When the kidnapping “plan” began, our security forces resisted, believing the embassy was under attack. Once the resistance began, all hell broke loose and people were being killed. Supossedly, it just plain got out of control (nothing unusual for this administration)....
Anyone know anything about that? Certaionly would be major blow to both Odumbo and Clinton’s future if it were true.
I agree, but it was actually the economy that toppled Nixon. For a feww days, early in the week, Obama was dropping; then he recovered after “firing” the IRS guy. I think it’s all based on morning radio headlines, but you’ve gotta
get some momentum going in the right direction.
Saying he was AWOL is to Obama’s benefit. Last fall Col. Dave Hunt and Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer were on Fox with Jeanine Pirro. They said we had video from two drones and that it was watched live in about fifteen different places within the U.S. government as it happened, including the White House situation room. They said that because this was the fourth U.S. installation that had been attacked the entire defense apparatus of the U.S. government was watching the attack as it happened. Lt. Col. Shaffer went on to say that his sources said that Obama watched the attack live.
I was trying to edit my comment but somehow managed to hit post before I was finished. For some reason it posted without allowing me to preview it. Anyway, sorry it is so awkward.
Here’s a link to the video I referenced...
Obama Was in the Situation Room Watching Benghazi Attack!
BO claimed he was informed of the situation around 5PM. He claimed he had Panetta handle it. I don’t believe he ever acknowledged the 10PM call. I am not sure if he ever denied this call occurred. Any FRpeers know if BO denied this call at some point. That would be more important than the content of the call. IMHO.
There was a White House meeting including the president at 7:30 as well. We had pictures of that meeting earlier this week. Lew looked grim.
We need a rich billionaire to offer a million each to any survivor who comes foreword. They really can’t be intimidated after what they went through unless they’re cowards.
That piece of garbage NEEDS to account for what he was doing after 5pm.
He did NOT go beddy-bye at 5pm!
So what WAS he doing? He works for US.
If I got caught skipping out on my job or sleeping on my job, I’d be fired.
If I got caught neglecting my job while something horrific happened, I’d lose my job and probably be prosecuted as well.
“Going to sleep”. Is sometimes used to describe folks that have passed out.
Did he take sleeping meds ?
A. Managing the rescue effort and possible military response.
B. Managing his campaign.
I choose B. Instinctively, Obama would focus his attention on dealing with the political fallout from the Benghazi attack and the death of the Ambassador. There is zero evidence that he was hands-on in the management of any possible military response. It's not his thing.
I will bet dollars to donuts that he was on the phone with Axelrod and huddling with Valerie Jarrett for most of those 5 hours. Out of that came the fiction of the video as the cause of a demonstration that got out of control.
Hilarious (and horrifyingly true). I love the picture of himself and a mirror on the desk.
QFT and to add that true-blue FReepers need to read down into the comments, too. Several commenters add great questions for consideration. I especially liked the first comment that notes a key question: What is so bad about Benghazi, as yet unrevealed, that the IRS scandal was pushed to the fore?
Wasn’t there some long drawn-out phone call with Bibi Netanyahu that evening?
Barack Choomed while Benghazi burned.
"Who's on the phone?"
"I don't know anyone named Ben"
Tell him to call back next week."
Mr. President......the other day you were worried about a few raindrops, so a Marine protected your precious head.......I then heard you say to the PRESS....YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. Those chilling words made me think about that night in Benghazi.....what it was like for them, desperately trying to survive, fire, missiles, shrapnel, aiming down on them, they were begging for help and to protect your precious political ass......they heard you say....YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. Seems to be a theme for you.
A comment at the WSJ:
An Extra Special Prosecutor is needed here, I nominate Vlad Tepes
His means and methods are well known and successful.
“And he hated evil in his country so much that, if anyone committed some harm, theft or robbery or a lye or an injustice...”
That would be about right.
> They couldnt pry Barry off Reggie.
My thoughts too, exactly...lol
Not if your boss lets you get away with it. We are the boss. Who represents us? The other branches. Where is the Congress on this?
I have had so much of enough of people blaming Romney. He was supposed to fix this on CBs News? The electorate doesn’t care They sure don’t care when the Congress doesn’t care.
The call with clinton was after the phone call to Netanyahu.
I think this commercial was aired not to apologize to the muslims but to introduce the YouTube video to the muslim world in hopes of further violence to further justify the crappy video as the culprit. After all, no one had even heard of the video until then.
Your recollection seems to be spot on. My only point in this is that Obama never claimed he spoke to Hitlery at all. Thus another lie. I do believe the story evolves as the truth is found out.
Thx do you recall which thread?
I think you are correct
As I recall, after the meeting there was a long phone call to Bibi. Why talk to him rather than tend to immediate business?
There were several postings of the photo of the meeting
I can’t find the thread
That would be spun as suborning perjury. I would rather they be subpoenaed and, if they don't show, the House can issues warrants and send the Sergeant-at-Arms to arrest them and compel their appearance.
Parenthetically, this is insane that we've arrived at the point in this country where these discussions are needed.
See the tale of Lt. John Ezra Dahlquist.
That is the same thing that X-President Clinton did to Janet Reno. Plausible deniability.
Little barry bastard boy’s spokesperson, Midway Carney announced during a presser at the WH that Obama and Hillahag spoke on a ten PM call.
well someone at the WH level set Newsy to air a lie for them which came on TV before the smoke stopped rising at the compound!
Why was Stevens in Benghazi with no real protection? He was in on the game too, but these two brave men spoiled Obama’s plan.
Think about it weeks of “Save Stevens” banner headlines then just before the election “Our Hero” brings him home with is great skills.
Personally, I beliee this theory is closer to the truth than anything found out thus far. If I were on that investigative committee, I would be pushing this constantly. Someone got close to the truth when “Hitlary” lost it and shouted<What difference does it make?” That alone to me is enough to push even harder to get her to completely break and to roll over on Odumbo. They were in on the plan from the get-go and it backfired.
Great work you’re doing. Exhaustive research. Please put me on the list. This was a black op from the start. How can the country be run if there is so much subterfuge occurring
