Skip to comments.What was Obama really doing during Benghazi?
Posted on 05/05/2014 7:37:37 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
Numerous compelling new questions emerged in recent days about the crumbling White House version of the Benghazi tragedy.
They include the faux meme about a "hateful video," who concocted it, why did Obama stick to that fiction so long, why weren't rapid response troops in position on 9/11 of all days, why were U.S. diplomats even in Benghazi after other consuls abandoned the dangerous city, why was Benghazi security reduced in the days leading up to the well-planned terrorist attack and why were Amb. Chris Stevens' security pleas ignored and no rescue attempted?
The upcoming Select House Committee on Benghazi will no doubt pursue these and other lines of obvious inquiry. And the answers will certainly play a large role in 2015-16 politics if, as expected, ex-Secy. of State Hillary Clinton decides to seek her party's nomination.
But for us the most pressing, curious and disturbing question today remains: Where was the Commander-in-Chief and what was he doing during an eight-hour attack that left four government employees unprotected, abandoned and dead?
We know now, thanks to Bret Baier's recent interview with ex-Obama aide Tommy Vietor, that the president was not in the Situation Room, the secure, in-house command post where presidents usually go to... ~snip~
Clinton and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta have both said they talked with Obama by phone that awful evening. And Obama's said he ordered all necessary security for American facilities and representatives abroad.
So, let's turn the question around:
What could President Barack Hussein Obama have possibly been doing that deadly night, what could his physical and mental condition have been that's so terrible and shocking that the know-everything chief executive would rather Americans think he was asleep at the national security switch?
That's something to awaken any American at 3 a.m. -- or earlier.

He and Reggie were making mad, passionate love by the fire.
Giving Reggie a ... well there maybe children present.
This could be the entire reason for the cover-up. Imagine a republican president missing during such an attack. His absence would be the headline for the next two years.
Not ‘what’, but ‘WHO’........................
That was certainly my first thought.....”don’t bother me. can’t you see the tie is on the door knob?”
That’s a hard piece and the new meme, Where was Obama.
He was busy packing for his fund raising trip to Las Vegas the next day.
Bush took five minutes to leave the classroom where he was talking to the kids when he was informed of 9/11, and Michael Moore made the movie Fahrenheit 911 just to say that proved Bush was an idiot.
He was one of three things:
1) Incapacitated because of some pharmaceutical/recreational drug reason,
2) Exhausted from debate preparation and campaign lie preparation and dead asleep, or
3) Just plain kicking it in the residence and chilling because he just didn’t give a sh!t.
I vote number three.
Recent info suggests he was doing “debate prep”
Lay around the White House, and put a good buzz on.
Has anyone tried to find out where Reggie was at that time? Was he still Barry’s body-man. Someone must know his whereabouts that evening. What might be his alibi?
Hopefully, big enough to bury--politically--0 and his party deep in their own--stuff!
For 8 hours (the estimated length of the atack)?
I vote 3 also.
riding the white pony ?
I thing we know the following to be true:
1. He was not in the Situstion Room.
2. He was on the phone with Netanyahu for two hours.
3. He was on the phone with Hillary Clinton for an unspecified period.
4. He was on the phone with Leon Panetta for an unspecified period.
I think that’s about it.
The big guy didn’t want to do anything to annoy his true bosom buddies, so he allowed them to rape and murder American citizens, then lied about it, and forced his team to lie about it.
The media didn’t need to be forced. They did it willingly.
......OR.......bad news goes better with coke......or Reggie AND coke!
I get that the MSM was playing ‘hear, see, and speak no evil’ at the
time. But, even today they pretend they don’t know where the BO
was when the bullets and mortars were cutting down our people.
I’d bet the MSM does know, at least some of them.
Cherchez la Reggie?
The ex-Seals on the roof lased a target.
That means air assets capable of taking out the target were overhead, waiting for clearance to bomb.
0bama refused to drop bombs.
All in an effort to cover up that fact that 0bama was shipping Ghaddafi’s arms to Al Qaeda in Syria, the same exact guys who had been killing our boys in Iraq.
Thank you George, Dick, John and Sarah for not letting the country know what type of person they were voting for.
“0bama refused to drop bombs.”
He told us that if things get weird, he’s siding with the Muslims.
Ain’t no way he’ll protect Americans against Muslims.
Think of who in Africom, CIA, NSA, DIA, Whitehouse, etc. were ALL LISTENING to the cries for help from the rooftop, and the silence from the Whitehouse.
There will eventually (too late) be a leak that blows this open.
Gossip has it that Obama was entangled in a gay orgy in the White House bathhouse, and it took awhile for the ecstasy and Viagra to wear off. There was a lot of chooming going on.
Another take is that Benghazi was an inside intelligence operation, coordinated by the Muslim Brotherhood. With the insane politics of Arab Spring, and the antics of our faggot president, it is unlikely we will ever know the truth.
Fill it, light it, shut up and close the door...
Imagine a republican president missing during such an attack. His absence would be the headline for the next two years.
I’m having problems imaging that. All our previous Republican Presidents have been solid, responsible American Citizens who put the country and our armed forces first. I’m still having problems wrapping my head around most of the stuff coming out of our White House lately, we don’t need to project this mess onto Republicans.
No, not the full 8 hours. We know that the attack on the compound started at about 3:40PM EST. Obama’s official schedule...
details his whereabouts until 5:00PM EST when he was briefed by Leon Panetta.
We also know he talked on the phone from 6:30 to 7:30 EST with Bibi Netenyahu.
After that call he was immediately briefed in the Oval Office by Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor, National Security Advisor Tom Donilon and Chief of Staff Jack Lew.
It is after that briefing, sometime after 7:30 EST that Obama’s whereabouts become unknown until his 10PM phone call to Hillary Clinton.
The new “debate prep” info at least suggests where he might have been between 7:30 and 10.
IF this comes out during the Select Committee investigation, I think it will infuriate a whole lot of other people.
It PERSONALIZES this issue: brave men pleading for rescue from OUR enemy, and their own CIC being AWOL, and voting ABSENT!
Ask the bratty, snot-nosed kid that Bret Baier interviewed. But that dude can’t remember cuz it was two years ago, and he didn’t have a tracking device put on the POtuS.
As I’ve followed the Benghazi trail I’ve come up with two (most likely) scenarios:
1) Team Obama never took National Security issues seriously, and when the attack happened they were caught completely off-guard and unaware. Being less than a month before the election Obama and his crew knew the attack had the potential to really make him look incompetent, swinging the election toward Romney. Hence, “the video started it” lie began.
2) Team Obama was doing something nefarious at the embassy, probably gun running, which had the potential to come to light after the attack (which they were unprepared for). Hence, “the video started it” lie began.
If it can be proven that the President of the United States willfully and knowingly stood up and lied to the American people-—then tried to cover it up-—impeachment bells will be ringing. For those who say he already lied to the American people about Obamacare, there is a major difference: Benghazi involves a major cover up.
Actually he was prepping for a presidential debate!
Most likely he was in front of mirror practicing lines about how he is tough on terrorism and how the world loves US now because he is president.
He could not be bothered with such trivial matters when there was an upcoming fundraiser. Afterwards when all hell broke loose on the ground, he and his ‘handlers’ thought it in his best interest to lie and keep the truth from coming out because of the election.
Funneling weapons and mercenaries to Syria, so they could “spontaneously” revolt.
Just exactly WHEN did he issue orders to the military on how to handle the attack in Benghazi? Did he give a thought to it?
Obama’s schedule for September 12, 2012.
2:05 pm The President departs the White House en route Joint Base Andrews
2:20 pm The President departs Joint Base Andrews en route Las Vegas, Nevada
6:50 pm The President arrives Las Vegas, Nevada
Local Event Time: 3:50 PM PDT
McCarran International Airport
9:10 pm The President delivers remarks at a campaign event
Hopefully the select committee will get those answers for us.
Why are the 30+ other individuals who were there not front and center?
To your first question, see post #34.
Your second question is one that I certainly hope the select committee gets to the bottom of.
And I wonder what AQ was using to 'pay' for those weapons ?
I'm sure it's just a coincidence.
Another point which needs to be pounded into the minds of all Americans:
Not only did he not make it to the situation room, he went to a fundraiser the very next day.
If the President cannot give up a fundraiser following a terrorist attack (reminiscent of how long it took him to interrupt his Christmas vacation after the underwear bomber episode), what does it take to get his full attention!!!
They include the faux meme about a "hateful video," who concocted it...
For some strange reason the press (including conservatives) seem to have forgotten, that it was Hillary Rotten Clinton herself who first put forth the notion of a rogue movie as being the cause of the Benghazi attack.
Like years ago I told you, dude.
They hijacked the now defunct Democratic Party in the 1970s. The new Party is the Party of aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue.
They are now the Establishment after a decades-long infiltration and indoctrination that some have described as a long march through the institutions patterned after Mao's long march. In position now to try to impose a Marxist revolution from the top down.
For example when my parents lived in Northern Va (father worked for DOD), he and a neighbor (whose agency's business was to know these things) told us some juicy things about the Clintons. Yeah, right. We thought it was gossip.
After the Monica Lewinsky story broke, we found out the gossip was GOSSIP.
I hope your gossip is GOSSIP!!!
