Was Obama in "Debate Prep" During the Benghazi Attack?

Here is an interesting tidbit from the White House Visitor Logs for 9/11/12: Obama met with three people, at an unknown time, for “debate prep.”

. . . .

There are not too many holes in his schedule during the day — increasing the chances that the “debate prep” took place in the evening, after the meeting with Panetta . . . in other words, when the Benghazi attack was unfolding.

Senators want to know where Obama was while the attack was unfolding. This may answer that question.

What caused you to excerpt your own material?

P-shaw. Dude, that was like two years ago. What difference does it make now?

Besides. Nothing is more important than Obama looking good. If a few people have to die to make Obama look good. So be it.

Many years ago, FReepers used to really get upset with blog-pimping and self-promotion of websites. Maybe things have changed now.

I wanted to bring the information to this group, which contains some of the best researchers around.

Oh. I rarely post here, and did so mainly because I thought that getting this group looking at this issue would move the ball forward. I haven’t tried to “pimp” any posts of mine here for years, but I thought this merited it.

Obama didn’t need to go to the Situation Room. You only go there if you are planning to give orders or get intelligence updates. Obama surrendered to the enemy forces in Benghazi. How do you think we got the Ambassador’s body back? Because Al Qaeda is a bunch of nice guys? Obama cut a deal with our enemies. “Give us the Ambassador’s body and let our people leave the annex and we’ll give you.....” He surrendered. Then, he went and hid.

Thanks for remembering us and for posting. I don't care whether you self-promote because so much crap gets posted here anyway, but I know other FReepers do.

What "ball"? And which direction is "forward"? At your website?

So what was his golf score that day? Anyone know? I’m thinking he had a good day, maybe 10 over par. But I don’t know.

Because it has been a long time since I posted here, and I was not aware I had the opinion to excerpt or post it all. Should I just delete this and start over and post the whole thing? If people unanimously tell me I should do that, I will. I am far more concerned with getting the information to people than in getting a couple extra hits. I apologize that my etiquette was poor.

Was Obama in "Debate Prep" During the Benghazi Attack?

It doesn't matter where he was, what matters is where he WASN'T!

The “ball” is learning: where was Obama when he was supposed to be monitoring these attacks? “Forward” is getting some reporter to ask him, and using the distributed power of multiple smart people to engage in further research.

For future reference: if I post the whole content here, will people still be upset because it’s my own content? Or will that be OK? Honest question.

Interesting information. Perhaps Cong. Gowdy can subpoena them to his committee to testify.

--------------------------------------------------

Only the POTUS had the authority to act!

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.

ONE man had the authority to act that night and he deserted his post!

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say

0bama abandoned his post.

0bama did nothing!!!

Where was President Obama during the Benghazi crisis? Some GOP senators want to know:
Republican senators on Friday put pressure on President Obama to confirm his whereabouts during the night of the Benghazi attack, after an ex-White House spokesman revived the debate by telling Fox News he was not in the Situation Room. The detail about the president's location the night of the attack is just one of many revelations that have, in a matter of days, kicked up the controversy to a level not seen since last year. After new emails were released raising questions about the White House response to the attack, a key panel on Friday subpoenaed Secretary of State John Kerry and House Speaker John Boehner announced a special investigative committee. On Friday afternoon, three GOP senators wrote a letter to Obama asking about his whereabouts and spokesman Tommy Vietor's comments to Fox News. "Last night, the former Communications Director for the National Security Council, Tommy Vietor, stated that on the afternoon and night of September 11, 2012 -- while the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya was under attack -- that you never visited the White House Situation Room to monitor events," they wrote. Claiming that Americans still do not have an "accounting of your activities during the attack," the senators asked him to confirm Vietor's account. The letter was signed by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz.; Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.

You may click the link here and see for yourself. Do it quick, before they scrub it. It says "3 meet with Potus [President of the United States] NO TIME LISTED 9-11-12." Interesting, no? I looked up these three folks, and put the information I found on this page. In short, all three have backgrounds in debate coaching and connections to Joe Biden. However, the logs clearly appear to indicate a visit with President Obama. Oddly, the logs do not indicate a time of day for this meeting -- but one would assume that debate preparation could be extensive and time-consuming. I expect Big Media to be remarkably incurious about this tidbit. I wonder if the Senators will be at all curious. UPDATE: This is looking more and more significant as the evidence comes in. Here is the President's official schedule for September 11, 2012. (H/t carlitos and reader M.R.) Obama appears to have been gone from the White House for much of the early part of the day. He observed a moment of silence on the South Lawn; visited the Pentagon Memorial; visited veterans at Walter Reed in Bethesda; returned to the White House; and met with Leon Panetta at 5 p.m. There are not too many holes in his schedule during the day -- increasing the chances that the "debate prep" took place in the evening, after the meeting with Panetta . . . in other words, when the Benghazi attack was unfolding. UPDATE x2: Thanks to Hot Air and Andy at Ace's place for the links.

It doesn't matter where he was, what matters is where he WASN'T!

One thing establishes the other. It would also illustrate his mindset.

You won't catch any flak about blogpimping.

However, you may still catch some crap if ALL you ever post is your own stuff.

I have copied and pasted it all here per your request. I used the HTML code from my post but it does not appear the same as it does at my site; paragraph breaks are missing. I hope that addresses the etiquette issue and perhaps we could discuss the content of the post now, which I think is potentially a genuine story. Again: if Obama was not monitoring the attack in the Situation Room because he was doing debate prep, doesn’t that seem worth knowing?

...the color of authority...

That makes TWO interesting words or phrases I've learned today! FReepers increase my word power, sometimes for the good.

Should I just delete this and start over

No, don't worry about it. There are just some uptight people here who like to whine about blog pimps.

I don't mind clicking blogs -- if you did the work to prepare it and publish, you deserve to get the click.
