Skip to comments.Why Obama refused to go to the Situation room on 9/11/12

Here's why Barrack Obama never went to the situation room during the attack on the Embassy in Benghazi.
In the situation room ofcthe whitehouse They were watching the attack with real time feeds from drones and in direct communication with Africom leadership.
The Brig.General that was serving and on duty during the assault testified this week said they knew in a matter of a few hours that it was a terrorist attack. Barrack after talking to Penetta and Hillary surely was told such. The decision was made at that point to blame the video.
Had Obama went to the situation room the military command would have told him that. He knew he needed to cover his political backside so he hide behind the skirt of Moochelle until his paid shills came up with their story.
How Pathetic, given that most likely the drone videos shows Stevens being dragged out of the complex and the Brave Seals being killed!
Or he was screwed up on drugs.
Or he simply had a “hot date” with a body man that he didn’t want to miss.
and there was no one in the situation room who called the president to tell him to get his ass down there
Is there any way they will make him testify? How about Valerie? Would love to see her on the hot seat.
Reggie may know.
“Had Obama went....”
should be Had Obama gone....hate to be the grammar police but since you are posting a vanity I figured I would treat you the same way I treat columnists. ;)
Yep....playing spades in the rear’ just like the BL raid.
Ok, he wasn’t in the situation room. So where was he? If he is in the White House at the least he should be arrested for depraved indifference. If he wasn’t, how far away was he?
My bet is they go with AF1 and he was aware of the events on the ground. The probably already destroyed the logs and fired the officers.
Proud2BeRight: Or he was screwed up on drugs.
House Atreides: Or he simply had a hot date with a body man that he didnt want to miss.
upchuck: Why not both? Yeah, I can see that.
Was there a basketball game on that night?
As vanities go, this is a very good one my FRiend :-)
The ONLY scenario that makes ANY sense is that Amb. Stevens was to have been kidnapped and then exchanged for the Blind Sheik.
Thats why there was no defense in the first place and that is why the heros who did fight were told to stand down and not get involved.
And of course it explains why there was no rescue attempt, AND why Clinton and BO called it a night.
Why would the Kenyan want this US Amb. dead?
That is the question.
1. If the U.S. government was using the diplomatic personnel in Libya as a front for an operation to ship weapons to the rebels in Syria, he'd need deniability in the event the cover was blown and the administration wanted to hang the State Department and CIA leaders out to dry by treating it as a rogue operation.
2. The guy isn't bright enough to run a lemonade stand, so there's no reason to have him involved in anything more complicated than a scripted TV appearance with a teleprompter.
A betting person might lay money there is video in someone’s possession proving this very thing. Remember the cool video they had of Bill and Monica walking around in the Oval Office? Didn’t it show the two of them walking out of the bathroom where she got the stain on her dress? Drudge had that show on FOX for short time, I know that is where I saw that video feed. Bet you ass NSA knows where and with whom ozonehole was with. Doubt we ever will though.
As Commander in Chief he could send those people to their deaths. If he had any humanity he would have stood by them in the situation room as the executed his orders. He knows that ...maybe...
This, of course, is the huge question, that never gets asked. Where was he? Why wasn’t he in the situation room?
Thats my question.
Set-up from word go.
If they didn’t have time to respond, how did they know how much time they had to begin with?
Here’s mine. He wanted no part of Benghazi from the moment it happened, made himself scarce. I have always wondered why he didn’t take advantage of one of the greatest political moments in history. Weeks before a presidential election he could have had a BinLaden sequel. POTUS in sit room, cameras rolling, giving the GO to troops to rescue an American ambassador. It would have been a lock on his second term. Something was way more important.
The only way they can compel the president to testify about anything is to impeach and then he could still lie (Clinton comes to mind).
He waffled on bin Laden too, however. Knew where he was and wouldn’t say kill, for a LONG time.
I think he wasn't there simply because he is lazy and unfocused. He just didn't care enough to take charge.
During at least one critical hour of the attack, we can place him: He and Biden were on the phone with Netanyahu. Immediately after, we have photos of Biden, Obama and some of his gargoyles, so we can time it pretty closely.
Check out theconservativetreehouse.com, the timeline there is excellent.
Sure is a lot of red meat out there.
It’s like an unlit match in a 98% oxygen atmosphere.
He was getting screwed in the arse by his lover Reggie Love.
Obama had a fundraiser the next day and a flight to make. He was sound asleep therefore, and didn’t want to be disturbed, IMO.
Maybe he didn’t want to miss “Return Of The Killer Tomatoes” Part Two on some cable network?
As Ralph Peters said this morning “Obama is a COWARD”.
Barack Obama, ‘’President Punk Ass’’.
Every American should be so pissed about the fact that he couldn’t even bother himself with checking in on the situation himself when he was told the attack was taking place or Ambassador Stevens was missing
I am inclined to believe this was a concocted ruse to trade Stevens for the Blind Sheik. After all based on reports on the ground at the time from Egypt that is why they were protesting When things went south with the Seals showing up Obama’s boys killed him.
At this point I don’t put anything past this narcissistic psychopath.
Yes. Makes sense.
Being the coward that he is, only reasonable answer.
That’s what I think too. Teflon Prez, can’t be near trouble for fear he’ll have to make a decision. Such a mom-jeans guy.
You forgot one thing. They knew Stevens was sodomized and who knows more about covering up rapes than Hitlary.
""... I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. ... So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that they had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy." Jarrett was quite sure that one of the few things that truly engaged him fully before going to the White House was writing Dreams from My Father. "He's been bored to death his whole life," she said."
So the only thing that interested him was having Bill Ayers write a book about himself. I guess the problem with Benghazi wasn't about him so what did he care.
He was working on his vacation plans
He was stoned and busy sexing. He looked like a wreck in the morning.
Think about this. You asked why would he want the ambassador dead. If this was indeed retribution for obama gunrunning gone bad, and once the assault started, obama went into political self-preservation mode, as did Hillary. He could have had an F-16 fly over with afterburners on and dispersed the aggressors. But now, after an assault he (obama) precipitated, why would he want Stevens to return to Congress and testify as to the truth. So .if Stevens dies he cannot come back and talk to Congress, 6 weeks before the election. But there were 2 SEALS who showed up. If Doherty and Wood had not showed up, there would have been 34 other people who would have been killed. All mouths closed. No one talking to Congress. So, when obama issued the order to stand down, when the second man in charge in Tripoli called to tell the consulate that NO HELP WOULD BE COMING, that is Obama saying it is OK for the 4 men to die for obamas political fortunes but even more he left the other 34 with no help from the USA to help get them out ..he haven them up to die. And that is why obama wanted Stevens to die, also Doherty, Woods, and 34 Americans to die. That is the kind of lead the USA has.
They would have to have concrete answers to the questions they would ask him before they ask. Then they could catch him lying under oath.
I think he was involved in something so bad, the American people would not stand for it for a second if they found out.
Valerie and Hillary know all about it.
Obama strikes me as an unstable person who has to be “handled”. Constantly.
When they found out that Stevens was dead, there was an “Aw-Sh@t!” moment, Obama was incapacitated, and Valerie went to Hillary, who is the fixer supreme in a panic. That’s when the video meme was hatched. And Hillary issued her video email at 10:09 pm EST.
Even if he was staying away from the situation room to have plausible deniability, that theory cannot stand because it is his JOB to be in that situation room.
All this happened between 3:30 pm and 11:30 pm EST. The President was in the White House almost the entire time, except for a short time in the afternoon. He was not somewhere where he was unreachable.
Biden, Panetta, Dempsey and Petraeus, Hillary were all at hand—not ut of the country or in the hospital, etc.
Yet not one of these went to the situation room or checked in on the progress of the raid they all knew was in progress?
And why, when our embassy in Cairo had ALREADY been overrun and there were riots breaking out in 21 countries, and it was Sept. 11th of all days, did we NOT have military forces positioned where they could respond quickly? What if we had to evacuate Americans from Cairo?
Pretty soon, the Democrats are going to have issue an apology to the Nixon family. The utter failure of the President and his entire Cabinet in this debacle can no longer be ignored. Their cowardice, indifference and lying puts all of us in danger.
I read on another thread today that the group that attacked was named after the blind sheik. Gives credence to the fake kidnap/swap theory. Explains why military was ordered to stand down.
Mme Hillary talks to Greg Hicks a few hours later...no mention of video.
Obama calls Mme Hillary at 10 pm.
Hillary releases the statement about the video a half hour later.
My guess is that Obama was busy with Jarrett upstairs cooking up the video lie while the attack was still taking place. The underlings in the situation room didn't do anything because they needed an order from the CIC.
Hillary the fixer supreme maybe so. Yea, she may have to hire another lemming shoe thrower. Didn’t she fake a broken arm to avoid testifying over something? The sh*t this bunch of goons shovel on us daily makes me feel I should wear boots. Saul Alinksky must be beaming down there in hell at his creation. Instead of the Jumanji board game, we all got sucked into a book crossed between Rules for Radicals and Screw tape letters.
If he had simply issued a CBA order and told Panetta to “a)pull out all the stops” and “b)call me immediately if you require any further decisions from me” I wouldn’t care if he went to the Situation Room. But it is clear that he didn’t issue a CBA.
