Senators Ask Obama Where He Was On Night Of Benghazi Attack
The Daily Caller ^ | 05/02/2014 | Giuseppe Macri

Posted on 05/02/2014 4:28:51 PM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

Three Republican U.S. senators wrote to President Obama Friday demanding to know where Obama was on the night of the Benghazi U.S. Consulate attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire said it’s time for the White House to disclose the president’s location on the night four Americans, including Libyan Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, were killed during an assault on the consulate.

Former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Fox News on Thursday that the president was not in the White House basement Situation Room at the time of the attack, prompting Republicans to wonder if Obama’s absence had an influence on the White House’s botched response.

He doesn’t know because it wasn’t in the newspaper for him to read about.

They probably already know the answer to their question, or else they wouldn't ask in such a public way, like any decent lawyer knows.

Why didn't they ask it in 2012?

...and, perhaps more importantly, WHO was he with and WHAT was he doing that was more important than addressing a situation where American territory (the consulate) was under deadly attack.

“..prompting Republicans to wonder if Obama’s absence had an influence on the White House’s botched response.”

Is this a joke? That is typical MSM eyewash. The point is not that there was a “botched response,” it is that the President doesn’t care.

He cares to send an “out” homosexual to Libya as Ambassador, for sure, but he doesn’t care about the actual diplomatic mission. He’ll make the State Department dinner for Stevens, but he can’t be bothered to be in the Sit room when the poor fellow is anally raped to death.

Doesn’t ANYONE get it?

If Obama needs anything up his rear, it’s Kissinger’s hand, so at least he can be a mannequin and not a murder weapon.

I’m not sure, but I think the fact that three WHITE guys are asking the question is most likely Racist.

Better check with Donald Sterling just to be on the safe side.

Hard to imagine that Obama`s absence would be a reason anything would be botched, would think his absence in any situation would be a plus

No, he was too incapacitated by drugs. So the next logical question is where was Joe Biden. And is Biden responsible for such a botched response.

You're undeniably correct that Obama was played cards in a dining room rather than in the Situation Room - and his "body-man" Reggie Love says on video that he was there playing spades with him.

So every time RINO’s do something right, you want to take them out? What side are you on?

I don’t care why they’re doing it. All politicians are self interested. But at least they’re doing it, and because they’re liberals, they have media credibility. This is a good thing, in this case.

I want to do the right think because those RINO scum are just as guilty as Obama and unlike a liberal, I won’t look the other way because because of the letter in front of their name.
